Whether you are looking for a low key weekend with your girls, or a saucy night out on the town, Tahoe is the perfect mix of naughty and nature for your bachelorette party. So load up the Whiteclaws and enjoy a fun filled weekend.
The Basecamp Hotel made the perfect place to stay for our large group of girls. It is right at Stateline and walking distance to downtown and the lake. The rustic chic property includes a beer and wine bar, cornhole, jacuzzi, and live music on weekend nights.
I use HOTELS.COM for my bookings so I can rack up and redeem rewards nights and utilize their daily discounts.
Basecamp has accomodations for large and small groups. We had a group of 12 girls and utitlized the Party Room which had 8 seperate twin bunk beds and 1 smaller room with 4 sized full bunk beds. Our rooms were only a few doors down so it was perfect for each having our own sleeping space but feeling close enough to feel like we were all together. Each room had a balcony and views of the mountains too!
We road tripped from Sacramento to South Lake Tahoe and we made a pit stop up at Apple Hill along the way. We grabbed some snacks at Boa Vista Orchards and did a cider tasting which was super fun and has a great view of the mountains! When we came into Tahoe we got lunch at Sprouts Cafe which is my favorite place to eat lunch in Tahoe! My girls loved the healthy option to fuel up on before our long weekend.
We wanted to keep the first night chill because some of the girls would be coming in at different hours and we had a long 3 day weekend ahead of us. We all settled into our room and one of my friends brought her Tarot cards which was such a fun way to get everyone to know each other and loosen up. Lots of laughs were had! I got the "Lovers Card" which was very fitting as the bride to be! You can get the same exact set of Tarot Cards on Amazon https://amzn.to/2EUS8ho - we all seriously talk about our Tarot card readings a year later!
We headed down to the Beach House for a drink during sunset and it was such a great spot! Cocktails and lake views! What more could. you ask for? We got dinner at McP's Taphouse Grill since it was super close to our hotel and we enjoyed sitting outside at the large table with a fire pit in the middle. Great for our group size and there was a bachelor party next to us which made it even more fun!
There are plenty of options for day fading in Tahoe. We rented the Tahoe Tiki Boat, which was the highlight of the trip! Seriously if you are having a bachelorette party in Tahoe this is a MUST! We had the boat for a few hours and they took us to Emerald Bay, where the water is clear and the beach day vibes are strong. My Maid of Honor made sure to stock the weekend with fun little "bride to be" accessories and toys. The engagement ring inner tube is a girls best friend on the lake! You can get the same one here on Amazon for super cheap: https://amzn.to/2QKPkGm.
During Labor Day weekend it was definitely crowded so snagging reservations for a dinner group of 11 girls was kind of hard. We ended up at Stateline Brewery which was cool because me and my girlfriends like beer and they had a decent food menu. The service was great and our server Brian (just so happened to have the same name as my Fiancé) was awesome too! All in all it was the perfect night for us after a long day of day drinking in the sun! Southlake Tahoe has a select few nightclubs if that suits your fancy as well!
For the last day we headed over to Round Hill Pines Resort for another epic day of sunshine, drinking and floating in the water. They have a beach side bar for you to order drinks, and since it is on the Nevada side you can legally drink on the beach! I highly recommend ordering their famous Pain Killer drink!! We spent the whole day soaking up the sun and floating in the lake (which is why I don't have any photos!). This area seemed a little bit more family friendly, so we did get some weird looks with our phallic shaped floating devices haha! My fiancé's group went to Zephyr Cove which is more of the "party" beach which is just North of where we were. Zephyr Cove sounded a little more Frat/Sorority vibe to it compared to Round Hill Pines.
We ordered pizza back at the hotel and called it a night! Tahoe offers a variety of different things for your party. Whether you like to keep it chill and have a girls night in mountain retreat or a crazy night club and day drinking extravanganza!
