A new hotel project promising to revamp the area's bed base and while also caring for watershed and wildlife broke ground on Lake Tahoe's South Shore earlier this month. Edgewood Tahoe, which currently owns a golf course on the property, is developing a major lodge project, with 154 hotel rooms and 40 private cabins. The new development — described as being "reminiscent of the great national park facilities" — will also include a 10,000-square-foot convention center, a spa, dining options, a lakeside pool and a new public beach.
Edgewood Tahoe and officials present at the groundbreaking ceremony said the 169,000-square-foot project doesn't represent an overdevelopment of the South Shore, as rights were transferred from aging lodging properties to create the capacity for the new lodge.
The resort project also includes significant restoration work on the 4,200-acre Edgewood Creek watershed, delivering improved water quality. And in addition to the public beach, new trails are planned to the connect the California and Nevada lakefront trail systems.
The groundbreaking was strictly ceremonial, as construction already has started, with the project slated to be finished during summer 2017.
