Mid-morning Snack

I was wondering what to write about this week, when one of my favorite topics came to mind - food! I'm one of those people who needs (don't know if it's a psychological or a physiological need) to eat every couple of hours. My coworkers love to give me a hard time as they see me traipse from my office across the lodge to the kitchen to get my mid-morning snack. Sometimes, if there is a group onsite, I "check on" the coffee break to make sure everything is going smoothly.

Hmmm...someone might need to check on this coffee break might need a check in

Weather permitting, coffee breaks are held outside. During a meeting or after sitting in front of a computer for a couple of hours, who doesn't need some fresh air? And you can't beat our view!

Of course when I "check on" on the coffee break a quality check of the baked goods is usually necessary.

For those who prefer a healthier option, we always have a fruit basket out at coffee breaks.

If there isn't a coffee break happening when my hunger strikes, I go straight to the source and visit Steve in the bakery. It's always a pleasure to see Steve and find out how his two girls are doing, and of course, get some yummy baked goods!

And, you can't have baked goods without a cup of coffee (at least I can't). We serve locally roasted and delicious Alpen Sierra coffee. So schedule your next meeting at our Lake Tahoe conference center and join me for a mid-morning coffee break on Fallen Leaf Lake!

Juniper A is the Party Cabin!

If groups are planning after hours socializing, we suggest  Juniper A for the designated party cabin. Juniper A is our largest cabin with four bedrooms, two bathrooms and a large living room.

If you maximize all beds, 11 can sleep comfortably in the cabin. Two of the Juniper A bedrooms each have a queen bed, two bedrooms have two twin beds and there are three twin beds in the living room.

Juniper A is one of the furthest cabins from the main lodge, but meandering at a comfortable pace, it's about a two-minute walk (I've timed it!). The cabin is up the hill, so has a nice view of Fallen Leaf Lake over the trees .

Our onsite store, the Fountain, sells an excellent assortment of domestic and imported beers, wines from Stanford-affiliated wineries and sodas that we can stock in your party cabin.

Juniper A is in a building (cluster) along with Juniper B, C and D. The other three Juniper cabins each have two bedrooms and a living room, so each cabin can sleep five comfortably.

The Juniper building can hold 26 of your high-energy guests! Adjacent cabins are in the Hills and Lakes groupings. If you have 100 or more in your group,  you can house your party guests on the entrance side of the lodge, then guests who prefer an earlier bedtime can stay in the Point cabins on the far side of the lodge. Take a look at our property layout for locations of all cabins. And check our availability calendar to schedule your next event at our comfortable center on beautiful Fallen Leaf Lake!
