ABOUT THE AREA

Squaw Valley Resort is the largest ski area in North Lake Tahoe, and was the host site of the 1960 Winter Olympics. With 3600 skiable acres, 29 chairlifts, and the only funitel in the US, skiing Squaw has earned a place on many a skier’s bucket list. Now under joint ownership with Alpine Meadows, Squaw Valley is in year five of a five-year, $70 million renaissance, which has brought new chairlifts, an iconic yoga studio and the world’s first ski-in/ski-out Starbucks to the mountains.

Beyond the slopes, visitors can enjoy ice skating, snow tubing, cross country skiing, and snowshoeing. The Village at Squaw offers a wide array of dining and apres options, as well as a full service spa, yoga studio, and many retail offerings.

A true four seasons resort, summer in Squaw Valley is not to be missed. Hike or ride the tram to High Camp Pool and & Hot Tub, where you can swim or enjoy a cocktail at the poolside bar. Play a round of miniature golf, conquer the 25’ outdoor climbing wall, or try your hand at the ropes course. When you’re ready for a day at the lake, sandy beaches await, only fifteen minutes from your door.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a fabulous late summer visit to Bull's Head! It's beautifully done, and right on the river (with a path down to the swimming hole). It's a much more spacious and private version of Tahoe than being on the lake. And if you like to fly fish...it's right there! Enjoy!

Mountain experience along the river, just what we were looking for. Bullshead met our needs and provided us a home base for our annual family vacation. The floor plan is what we needed for our extended week away.

Reviewer Comments:

We had a birthday weekend with lots of friends, hiking, cooking, and laughing. The house was magical- gracious and well appointed- with generous open spaces for gathering and hanging out. Perfectly fitted for its natural surroundings, this property is elegant and mountain comfortable all at once. It was clean, well organized, and true to the descriptions on the website. The managers were responsive and helped us with our requests quickly.

Reviewer Comments:

Bullshead Lodge was amazing ! The description and photos were accurate but it was even better than we thought. The property was clean and well maintained,in the main . at first I was disappointed with hearing the road noise, but after 2 days , I got used to it, and imagined it was the sound of the river... The age range went from 70 to 2 , including 2 teenagers , and it worked really well ,due to the layout of the Lodge ( tons of space ) The highlights were floating in the river nearby, cycling along the river to Tahoe City , and kayaking at Sugar Pine National forest. i would definitely recommend Bullsland Lodge.

Reviewer Comments:

Overall a very impressive house with loads of space. Easily sleeps the people it says on the website. Kids had a fabulous time with going on sleigh rides in the back. Facilities and service of the house also worked well. Good hot water, nice hot tub, functional kitchen, clean beds. Great. The only thing I would have wished for was a better wifi connection as this was patchy at best. Maybe it's due to the landline going in and the area. But apart from that a great place to stay.

We had a great time at Bulls Head Lodge. The home was clean and we enjoyed the location and comfort. The only upgrade would be for the owner to purchase a BluRay DVD player. Thanks, Dave
