South Lake Tahoe’s newest boutique hotel has everything a West Coast hipster could want when spending a weekend in the mountains.
Coachman was originally built in 1960 to accommodate the influx of tourists headed to the Tahoe Olympic Games before being reimagined as a hipster paradise in the spring of 2016. While you won’t get the spa-style amenities associated with the Ritz-Carlton in Truckee, or the massive space from an Airbnb vacation house, Coachman provides style and practicality at a surprisingly affordable rate.
Handcrafted beds and fine linens will make the 42 rooms feel quite cozy in the winter, when South Lake Tahoe becomes less about the lake and more about the slopes at Heavenly Mountain, just a two-minute walk away.
Accessories scattered within the Founded interests are Blankets by Woolrich and Pendleton, Stephen Kenn Furniture and Amenities from Harry’s Shaving and Malin + Goetz.
In the common areas, guests can relax with a glass of wine and a good book on fur-clad chairs and coaches or lounge around the outdoor fire pits with a Pendleton blanket and a s’mores kit. At Coachman, mingling is encouraged. // 4100 Pine Blvd. (South Lake Tahoe)
