Set along the beautiful shoreline of South Lake Tahoe’s cobalt blue waters and overlooking the Sierra Nevada, Edgewood Tahoe is re-opening its doors beginning May 15, and ready to welcome travelers once again to experience the lodge’s grandeur. Edgewood Tahoe has built its reputation on anticipating guest needs, leading hospitality trends and exceeding customer expectations with elevated offerings and anticipatory, luxury service. Following the successful reopening of the famed Edgewood Golf Course on May 4, The Lodge at Edgewood is following suit, with newly instated health and cleaning protocols, created to set the backdrop for worry-free travel.
“When we welcome guests back to The Lodge at Edgewood Tahoe, we want them to have the peace of mind they are used to experiencing when they escape to our lakefront resort,” said General Manager Corinna Osborne. “We have been able to retain and pay our staff through our downtime, uniquely positioning us to relaunch with our dedicated, original team that has been trained on the resort’s new cleaning protocols—an integral piece of the puzzle to help us ensure our guests have the exceptional experience they have come to expect from Edgewood Tahoe.”
As a 2020 Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star recognized hotel and spa, Edgewood Tahoe has continued to make health and sanitation safety its first priority, closely monitoring government policy changes; Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines; federal, state, and local government mandates, and public health advancements. Upon arrival, the guest journey at Edgewood centers around physical distancing in a safe and pristine environment. Quintessential communal amenities, such as the evening s’mores cart, have been updated to ensure safety and physical distancing, while still delivering the four-star luxury service guests expect—with individually wrapped s’mores packages. Guests will also receive a welcome amenity that includes a custom face mask, hand sanitizer and wipes for additional on-the-go safety. Once on property, guests will be able to partake in the popular Star Tours series, immersed in the starry skies above, or to cozy up by the firepits for caricatures, ukulele lessons or evening s’mores featuring a periodic drop-in from a local Mark Twain impersonator, regaling guests with tales of escapades in the Sierra. Edgewood Tahoe’s restaurants and bars will reduce seating capacities to allow for a minimum of six feet between each seated group of guests, with dining available on a reservation-only basis. The Bistro was the resort’s first dining concept to re-open on property, welcoming guests with reservations beginning Tuesday, May 12 with a robust menu of signature offerings. Spa Edgewood’s salon will reopen with the Lodge on Friday, May 15, with strict capacity and health measures in-place for the safety of staff and guests.
The resort is continuing its mission to cultivate a community that revels in the balance between a wellness-forward lifestyle, paired with laidback, lakefront luxury. The Lodge at Edgewood will re-introduce its daily mountain morning yoga in June, with outdoor programming that takes advantage of the resort’s 235-acre wooded bastion. Spa Edgewood will reopen once requirements from State and Federal Authorities, including the Nevada Board of Cosmetology, are received and implemented. In the interim, the team at Spa Edgewood is curating a menu of “hands-off” services including a Reiki Energy Healing experience—a touchless method of spiritual healing and self-improvement, as well as a self-guided Hypervolt Massage—also a touchless experience where master therapists guide a client through massage techniques using the Hypervolt technology to alleviate sore muscles and relax away tension.
