For the past week the heat in Sacramento has been unusually high: Triple digits for days. So when my friend said she was going to spend a few days in Incline Village, Nevada, I asked if I could come visit, and – fortunately – she said “Yes!”
She was at the Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe Resort, Spa and Casino and I drove up Tuesday morning for an overnight stay. (I’ve reviewed it on TripAdvisor if you’re interested in my thoughts about the hotel itself.)
We were eager to enjoy the cooler mountain air, and having a private beach just added to the ambiance!
Of course the hotel was accessible; I counted ten handicap parking spots, and was told at the front desk that there are 12 handicap accessible rooms (although the website indicates there are ten).
On the morning that I arrived it was overcast, with a threat of thunderstorms. So we sat on the patio on the ninth floor and chatted and picnicked, enjoying the cool breeze and the occasional flash of lightning in the distance.
We did eventually follow the path down to the beach, but since it was lightly sprinkling and I did not want to endanger my camera, we didn’t stay for long.
The next morning, however, I retraced my steps to see how close Carrieanna might be able to get to the water, should she ever want to stay here.
The walkway was fairly level and wide, with well-tended flora on either side. And I suspect that it is illuminated at night.
Reaching the end of the walkway, I found that a wheelchair would need to go through the restaurant in order to get to the boardwalk and down to Pier 111.
The view, however, is definitely worth it!
Overall, it was a lovely way to spend a summer day at Lake Tahoe – and get away from the heat!
