"when walking in the woods, one always finds more then they are looking for" -John Muir
I've decided to resurrect the blog so soon because I've found myself in a tent, in the woods along side a trail once again. Though this time it's only for a weekend I'm still sure there will be things to write about.
First off let me start by saying that my life has been going great so far in the Reno Nevada area. I've been working for the Nevada conservation corps for 3 weeks, and ...
I've completed day two of my cross country motorcycle trip. Today I rode from Three Rivers, CA to Topaz Lake, NV via Sequoia National Park and the Sonora Pass which is in the Stanislaus National Forest via route 108 which is just north of Yosemite.
At 0630 I headed north east from three rivers to the entrance of sequoia national park. The giant sequoias are about 18 miles up one of the most challenging roads I've ever tackled on ...
... equipment to help with the fire and they had set up areas to inform people about the fire on the side of the road. They had blocked off all the little parking spots on the side of the road where you would normally take photos of the park for safety reasons but people were still stopping right on the road to take photos of all the black trees. Madi wondered what had happened to all ...
... have left his card……Guess what, they claimed they didn’t have it. I just happened to remember there was a Wells Fargo Bank just down the road on the way back to the Wyndham Resort. A bank teller asked us to sit and wait a moment for a special rep to assist us. We explained what happened and she cancelled Dave’s card and gave him an instant debit/credit card to use until the new one arrives. She graciously offered to send it to our ...
... Tahoe and begin to wonder if there is more natural snowfall here in summer than Australia has in winter. The trip involves crossing the Sierra Nevada mountain range, which are not dissimilar to our own snowy mountains or those in New Zealand... Except it is summer and there's several feet of snow on top. As much as we were both dying for a US winter trip, we did not plan for one! South Lake ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Aston Lakeland Village Beach & Mountain Resort South Lake Tahoe
The condo was clean, the furniture, dishes etc. were adequate for the price charged. Housekeeping was excellent. The location was within a mile of the casinos and the Heavenly gondola. Good food and bars were available within walking distance. The shuttle was a bit slow on the first day pick-up but shuttle service was responsive and easily available throughout the rest of the stay. The front desk staff are friendly and courteous. The continental breakfast provided had a good variety plentifully stocked by the staff. Being off of Hwy 50, there is road noise but the lakeview from the pier was good. Though the hotel requires adult supervision of children 14 and younger at the pool area, there was an incident when youngsters were unsupervised. We notified the front desk of the problem but do not know if anything was done since we decided to leave the hot tub instead of putting up with the kids. The hot tubs fill up fast with ski weary patrons!!! Be sure to check your bindings and boot fit at the ski shop! Two of us had problems with our bindings which was frustrating when we got to Heavenly. We had to fiddle with the bindings to get the boots in the skiis. Overall we had a great time and would stay again.
My sister got married at one of the Casinos in January, 04. We have a particulary LARGE family and wanted to find a place that would keep us all relativaly close together. Well Lakeland Village provided town houses that have up to TWO room w/ loft. Each bedroom comes with One King size, or two Double beds. The loft also has two double beds, and additional cots. First off a couple of these rooms and we had plenty of room for several family members, two bathrooms, clean and relaxed enviornment, as well as privacy. There was no going from "room to room" or "floor to floor". WE were able to go and relax at both Town houses and visit, and relax. BELIEVE ME I have been going to Tahoe for years and this was probably my BEST experience yet. Thanks Lakeland Village.
Our whole family can stay together in one condo, it is very relaxing, especially after labor day-it's much quieter. Very accomidating, we love it for our annual vacation!
Not a joke!
I have never seen a bat before until i looked up at the skylight to see a bat hanging out. needs a facelift and remodel would not hurt. ample amounts of cobwebs in the ceiling and corners, skylight was leaking during the rain, loose light fittings and loose plug outlets.....
First I would like to start by saying that I had my doubts about the place. I never had been to tahoe and guess I got lucky.
Lovely Lake Tahoe
I've been checking out the reviews for this hotel because this is where me and my husband spent our honeymoon almost 23 years ago in Sept. so good to hear that it still seems to be so nice after that long. Would love to go back, we loved it when we were there our room had a kitchen and we cooked our first dinner together tacos!! after that is was eating out for us.
Great service and location
If you are into a great location this is the place. We stayed in unit 525 and will never stay anywhere else again. They say it is not a view room, but from this balcony we got to watch the sunset. We then went down to the beach to video tape the sunset and take some pictures of heavenly. If you stay in lake tahoe you have to check out this unit. We would like to thank the reservations again for getting us into 525. They were friendly and very reassuring when we thought that there was a mixup. I wish more people could be like this. You gotta love those free shuttles after getting hammered at Chevy's (You gotta try the 1800 top shelf margarita in the XL glass-WOW!). For the price we paid, this was a steal. My wife still can't believe the deal that we got.
We recently stayed @ lakeland village and had a great time. The large property had large pine trees and we liked to take advantage of the beachfront tennis courts. We would really like to thank the reservations manager Jason for getting us into an awesome unit steps from the beach. If you want to have a quiet secluded location in Lake Tahoe, give this one a try.
The best location
You can't beat the Location- Beach, dock, ski shuttles, casinos all within 1 mile. Dining and a brewery within 1 block. Across from a new Safeway. The units vary because they are all individually owned and maintained. Ask for one you like or look at the available units to pick from. I got a newly remodeled 2 bedroom that was very nice. If you want daily cleanup and maid service go through Premier Resorts. Premier also has a minimum standard (AAA 3 star). You can save money through other (or private) agencies but you take your chances.
Shows its age.
We recently stayed at a loft condominium in this complex with a "partial" view of the lake (just barely over the rooftops of the adjacent building - Hah!). It was more than enough room for three people but the condo was clearly showing its age and was rather dark. We had asked specifically for this unit because a colleague had stayed there and strongly recommended it. As we walked down the hallway and peered into some of the rooms during cleaning time, we noticed how poorly-maintained some of the other units were. Bottom-line, you may or may not get a fair deal. Unless you know which units are well-kept and can reserve them in advance, pass on this one.
