Luxury in Truckee, CA? You bettcha. The Cedar House Sport Hotel
fuses hip European style and high-adrenaline adventure. Right out the back door, there's backcountry skiing galore (or hit the slopes at Alpine Meadows just 15 minutes away). High-end accommodations means designer leather platform beds, luxurious European linens and pillow-top mattresses, spa bath amenities, flat screen TVs, and high speed Internet. The 42 rooms and suites have a contemporary design with an organic edge. Indeed, the hotel is devoted to environmentally friendly practices and a green design: sod roof, natural building materials, radiant floor heating. The Cedar House Sport Hotel partners up with local mountain guide companies to create the perfect outdoor adventures. After a day of snowshoeing, skiing, or dog sledding, chill out in the lobby bar by the roaring fire. Or relax in the outdoor hot tub. Within weeks of its opening last summer 2006, the hotel hosted teams of pro-cyclists and the Canadian Olympic Nordic ski team-- who easily sniffed out the area's hottest new hotel.
PS. Cedar House is dog-friendly. Fido is welcomed with special treats and a dog bed.
