About Basecamp Hotels

Basecamp South Lake Tahoe is a new boutique hotel built for exploring the incredible lakes, trails, and mountains in the Lake Tahoe Basin. Our accommodations are located in the heart of South Lake Tahoe, a short 5 minute walk to the lake and an even shorter 4 minute walk to the Heavenly Gondola. Our 73 stylish rooms are designed for adventure and relaxation seekers alike, with the amenities and style of a modern resort, but at more affordable motel or inn-like prices. Come stay with us and let our Basecamp Hotel lodging be your springboard for your Lake Tahoe adventure.

In April of 2011, Basecamp Founder Christian Strobel lamented the fact that there are no high style but affordable hotels that embody the spirit of exploration. They wanted to build a hotel reflecting the ideals of a base camp, a place where people can come together to share stories and exchange tips before heading out on their adventure. With the help of designer Elaine Cotter, they turned their vision into a stylish reality. Exploration is in the DNA of Basecamp Hotels and it’s what makes us an exciting place to stay in Lake Tahoe.
