Explore South Lake Tahoe

One of Desolation Hotel’s most celebrated features, our enviable location is second to none.

Located in California on the southern end of Lake Tahoe, we are situated in one of the United States’ most revered outdoor destinations. A widely lauded natural gem, the lake is one of the largest and deepest in the world, featuring crystal-clear turquoise waters that alone are worth a visit. Nestled amongst the magnificent Sierra Nevada Mountains — a range that’s home to Yosemite National Park and Sequoia National Park — we are fortunate to be in one of the world’s best locations for outdoor recreation. Exceptional skiing, hiking, biking, paddling, boating, and nearly any activity imaginable is right at your fingertips.
