An exclusive new club comes to Lake Tahoe and it’s one that you’re going to want to join. Available only to resort guests of the Ritz-Carlton Lake Tahoe via a short shuttle ride, the Lake Club is a luxurious waterfront amenity that will make you want to spend all your time outdoors enjoying the scenic views of the lake and mountains of Northern California.
Principal architect Clare Walton and designer Jennifer Loving, both of Walton Architecture + Engineering (Walton AE), drew upon the property’s picturesque surroundings when choosing materials for the building. Natural materials like ledgestone and walnut & cedar wood pays homage to the mountains and provides a warm, grounding feel to such a luxurious club. Floor to ceiling glass windows were a must for a scenic landscape like Lake Tahoe.
The interiors tell another story with its contemporary design aesthetics. Turquoise elements and white accent lighting are reflections of the waters and (in the winter) snow outside.
Art pieces by both renowned and local artists (including Jacob Hashimoto, Jennifer Hannaford, Karen Margolis, Pat Blide, Marianne Rosenfeld, Marybeth Hamilton, and Troy Corlis) are sprinkled throughout the club.
Guests have direct access to the lake from the Lake Club, as well as a private boat pier for summer recreational water activities. Other amenities include an outdoor spa, fire pits for gathering around at night, storage facilities for all your water equipment like kayaks and paddle boards, and indoor/outdoor dining spaces.
