This classy new luxury resort already has gained a flood of accolades since its opening in 2017: Nestled at the edge of a pine forest just a few hundred feet from a 180-foot private beach, this 235-acre property on the South Shore seems to float in a cloud of tranquility and relaxation, despite being within walking distance of South Lake’s largest casinos (though the resort offers complimentary shuttle service in Mercedes vans). Spacious rooms (500 and 750 square feet) and suites (1,000-1,500 square feet) all feature gas fireplaces (some double-sided), private deck, soaking tub, walk-in showers, and in-room fridges, with clean lines and subtle textures that ooze mountain chic. In addition to a 8,500-square-foot state-of-the-art spa, Edgewood Tahoe incorporated seemingly endless intimate gathering spots among its public spaces, including numerous fire pits. The sleek infinity pool, heated year-round, faces the lake and mountains beyond, while the nearby hot tub seats up to 40 guests. And its 18-hole golf course now hosts an annual celebrity golf tournament. Their sleek Bistro restaurant serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner, but the real standout is the Edgewood Restaurant, where dramatic floor-to-ceiling windows allow guests can enjoy sunsets and stunning views over the lake.
