Overview

Located on the border of Nevada and California, South Lake Tahoe is the adventure hub for the Lake Tahoe area. The 50 room Basecamp Hotel is a true gem amongst the chain and franchise hotels in that it offers something unique and modern at a great price point and it's a truly independent offering. The hotel has been developed with adventure in mind; it's somewhere to sleep while you explore the area, rather than a resort. The rooms are modern, bright and spacious and most offer a private balcony. There are some thoughtful family rooms, as well as smaller options for couples.

Communal areas are lovely and are a blend of independent hostel meets hip coffee house. Breakfasts are included (a rarity for the USA) and consist of freshly baked pastries, granola and good coffee. In the evenings, a campfire is lit on the terrace and you can toast s'mores under the stars. Upstairs on the roof terrace is a hot tub.

The hotel is a short walk to the beach and is in easy access of all of the beaches and areas around Lake Tahoe. A perfect offering for those who prefer an independent and unique place to stay without all the frills, think rustic cool.

  • Hi - now back.
    In short it was a great holiday with very very little to fault. Location on Lopud was perfect for family and accommodation was exactly as you said ‘simple’ clean and comfortable hosted by a wonderful friendly local family ...all 1min walk from the front. Great breakfast that was straight from the garden in part and always abundant.
    Our guide Nina was excellent always putting our safety first and adapting the itinerary to suit weather. She was a great host with the two families in our group and went out her way to keep us informed and even take photos to share when we were out on the water.
    Transport arrangements were spot on - always there waiting at airport or ferry! Slight confusion that it wasn’t a TourDust sign but that was quickly solved.
    Kayaking was a great adventure and a challenge some days but worth it for the stops on other islands and opportunities to swim, dive and explore caves. I suspect it could be a long day if your child is too young or not such a ‘water baby’ as once your in the kayak your in it! It is also a hefty bit of exercise on a two person kayak if the child in front isn’t up for paddling! I was fine except on one or two occasions where it was a bit of a struggle and I had to persuade him to do some more paddling for me.
    Finally, your service has been great since we got in touch especially as it was a last minute decision for us to go. The speed in responding to queries on a personal basis and quickly was really great (very unusual these days!)
    All in all a great holiday - my 11 year old had a great adventure he will talk about for years! So will I....

  • We had a fabulous holiday thank you! Everything went very smoothly - accommodation was good, breakfast fantastic! The kayaking was great - really well thought out schedule with plenty of rests and time to relax. Lovely meals out.

    Just wanted to add that our guide Nina was excellent. She worked really hard to ensure the whole trip went smoothly and that we were all happy with the pace, including giving the boys plenty of opportunities for jumping in off the cliffs!!

    All in all a great trip! And all the admin side of things has been very efficient throughout.

    Thank you so much!!

  • Hi, just back home now as stayed in London last night. It was fab! We loved it! Amazing all round- Thankyou. Best holiday ever!!!

    Accommodation great at both places, guides lovely, staff great. We saw more animals than ever expected: giraffes, lion, elephants, water hog, wilder beast, impala, white rhino, crocodiles, hippos in lake Sybia, monkeys in trees at Tonga.

    Beach beautiful, but a bit windy, waves v rough but didn’t deter my boys. We snorkeled which was fab but too rough on day we booked to do ocean experience.

    My boys swam in all pools!!!

    Weather better than we expected!

    Must go and do some laundry, but hope that helps?

    Best Nicola
