CALIFORNIA WINTER

Snow snow & more snow! 

Did I mention I am a winter person? Although I travel to many warm destinations, Winter is truly my favorite season and vacation getaway! I am from London and people there tend to moan about the cold, and crave the sunshine but not me, I could literally live in the snow, wake up in the snow, and play in the snow! I LOVE wrapping up in cozy knits, boucle fur coats, fuzzy hats and warming up in the evenings by the fireplace in a cozy cabin! Lucky for me, we only live 3/4 hour DRIVE away from this beautiful place called LAKE TAHOE where this year WE HAVE been blessed with so much snow!

It's the perfect weekend getaway, tucked away in the majestic mountains, towering pine trees, cozy cabin homes and picturesque lakes! Take a little peek of our winter weekend in March!

where we went:

 

WE HAVE BEEN TO LAKE TAHOE NUMEROUS TIMES AND STILL NEVER RUN OUT OF THINGS TO DO HERE!

IT'S LITERALLY MY FAVORITE WEEKEND GETWAY (ONLY DURING WINTER SEASON)

THIS TIME WE DECIDED TO DO SOME DIFFERENT THINGS THAN OUR NORM, LUCKY FOR US A NEW RESORT OPENED UP A FEW MONTHS AGO AND WE WERE SO EXCITED TO SEE IT!

here are some of my favorites:

 

the lodge at EDGEWOOD RESORT AND HOTEL

ALTHOUGH WE WANTED TO STAY HERE, WE ENDED UP GOING FOR BRUNCH/LATE LUNCH. the bistro had amazing views of the lake which you can walk out to and the place was surrounded by fireplaces! it was my heaven! THE LODGE HAS THREE RESTAURANTS TO CHOOSE BETWEEN, WHILE OVERLOOKING THE LAKE WHICH YOU CAN WALK TO. A TRULY BEAUTIFUL PLACE HIDDEN AWAY IN THE HUSTLE OF SOUTH LAKE TAHOE. 

truckee town

the cutest town to name- cozy cabins, picturesque coffee places & the donner lake! I WOULD SUGGEST CHECKING OUT THE COFFEE BAR for local espresso warm up

hyatt regency hotel & resort

we stayed here overnight and were lucky to have been upgraded to a cozy cabin in the woods which overlooked there own very lake,  the rooms had a fireplace to cozy up with, we woke up to beautiful snow on our balcony. the resort also has outdoor firepits to make your own s'mores!
