Squaw Valley (Olympic Valley) lodge description

This is it! Call Ann to ask any questions: 530 412 5436

Charming B&B Style. Rent a room... enjoy a house. A comfortable location for couples and singles. Full kitchen, washer and dryer, high speed internet access, 200 plus channel flat screen satellite TV system, and overlooking Squaw Valley USA.

ACCOMMODATIONS. Poole’s Guesthouse offers you more than a typical Vacation Rental; it is loaded with comfort and charm and similar to a Bed and Breakfast and pension. The difference between our lodging and a Bed and Breakfast, is that instead of us serving breakfast, guests are welcome to bring in groceries and cook ANY meals that they wish in the well appointed gourmet kitchen. With our KEURIG coffee machine you will have a great selection of Coffee’s and Espresso, teas, hot chocolate and alpine cider which await you each morning.

PRIVATE SPACES. Your room has views of Squaw Valley’s famous mountains and winter ski slopes. We call our lodging Poole’s Guesthouse. Our “Ponderosa King” guestroom has one king-size bed and a large 6 foot octagonal window for looking out over the living room to view the mountain, the winter ski slopes or possibly the sun rising and setting. The Ponderosa Queen similar to the Ponderosa Kin, except that it has one queen bed. The Hideaway has a King and a Twin bed. NO Cleaning Deposits or Security Deposits and you don’t have to spend the last day of your vacation cleaning, as you have to do with a condo or vacation rental… or wonder if the owners will return your deposit.

Long time locals, we are Herman and Ann, your hosts. We have our living space on the lowest level of the guesthouse and are a great resource for information for fun things to do, places to see and wonderful places to dine. This is a great asset for people arriving from outside our area and outside The States. We have really enjoyed having guests arrive from many countries of the world that are drawn to the beauty of the Lake Tahoe area.

COMMON ROOMS. Guests share use of the common living room with a 23-foot ceiling and walls of mostly glass, gourmet kitchen, scenic dining area and laundry room with detergent waiting for you. Everyone loves our panoramic views of the rugged peaks that surround Squaw Valley USA and we have a SPIRAL STAIRCASE that takes you through the three levels of the guesthouse.

PANORAMIC VIEWS. We offer a WONDERFUL LOCATION; less than a mile to the base of Squaw’s famous winter ski area, about 3 miles from Alpine Meadows and within minutes of all the North Lake Tahoe ski areas. Poole’s Guesthouse has beautiful views of the mountains, tall Ponderosa Pines, and the winter ski slopes of Squaw Valley USA. You can see Squaw Valley’s KT-22, Olympic Lady, Snow King, and Headwall. Winter-time, it is fun to watch the people riding up the ski lifts and swooshing down the ski slopes. Wouldn’t it be fun to go Dog Sledding? It is available just about 5 minutes from us. A free shuttle travels throughout the valley about every 20 minutes. Surrounded by six rugged peaks, Squaw Valley USA’s 4,000 acres of terrain provides both tame to the tough ski runs with something exciting for skiers and snowboarders of all ages and abilities. It also offers cross county and snowshoeing, ice skating, snow tubing, a climbing wall and swimming lagoon. With your ski pass at Squaw, you can take a free ski shuttle to travel a couple miles to Alpine Meadows and ski this mountain for free!

For non-skiers and year-round visitors to the valley, Squaw is a great place to simply “people watch”, get a massage, go wine-tasting, jewelry making or pick out a game at Minds Play. Visit a variety of quaint little boutique shops, and enjoy Starbucks. Or, simply relax enjoy the comfort of our guesthouse; bring a good book that you’ve been wanting to read.

YES, we offer a GREAT SUMMER SPRING AND FALL LOCATION too! This is Tahoe… where its always a good time to visit! We are near all the fun things to do at Lake Tahoe: bike riding, scenic walking and biking trails, fishing, horseback riding, a swimming lagoon and spa, a climbing wall, a flying trapeze, a ropes course, a variety of outstanding golf courses, miniature golf, a scenic tram ride, beaches, and many boating water activities. Maybe you would like to get married at Tahoe? See tahoeminister dot com for all the details.

Poole’s Guesthouse has offered lodging since 1993. Guests often tell us that they wish that they had planned to spend more time at Poole’s Guesthouse because it is cozy and comfortable, has a great location, beautiful panoramic views, and is offered at an affordable price! Once guests find us, its fun to see them come back again and again to this lovely guesthouse overlooking Squaw Valley USA.
