About Desolation Hotel

Desolation Hotel is the portal for adventure and rejuvenation in beautiful South Lake Tahoe.

A micro-resort where quiet simplicity meets modern luxury, at Desolation Hotel we nimbly balance the scale between peaceful respite and lively connection. Balance, we’ve discovered, is the flexible backbone that allows us to deliver unmatched experiences, unforgettable memories, and unparalleled hospitality.

Like the pioneer John Muir who found harmony between the celebration and preservation of the majestic Desolation Wilderness, we balance the joys of conviviality with the comforts of relaxation throughout your precious holiday.

Luxurious but not snobby, generous but not wasteful, and intimate but not crowded, we imitate nature’s innate ability to find balance in all that we do. Here, staying in Desolation feels anything but desolate.

Surround yourself with wonderment at Desolation Hotel.
