Edge­wood Ta­hoe, home to The Amer­i­can Cen­tury Cham­pi­onship since 1990, is now a des­ti­na­tion golf course with the June open­ing of the new $100 mil­lion Lodge at Edge­wood, Ta­hoe. The 169,000-square foot lodg­ing at South Lake Ta­hoe has 154 rooms, and the project added 200 new full-time jobs to the area.

The his­toric lodges of the great Amer­i­can West were crafted with one goal in mind: to al­low kin­dred spir­its to ex­plore the most mag­i­cal of set­tings. From na­tional parks to nat­u­ral won­ders, th­ese lodges be­gan to pep­per the most sought-af­ter sites in the West, mak­ing the unattain­able sud­denly at­tain­able. Moun­tain air be­came breath­able. Alpine lakes, touch­able. Soar­ing peaks, sur­mount­able.

The Lodge at Edge­wood Ta­hoe re­cap­tures the spirit of th­ese sto­ried re­treats and the ad­ven­tures they in­spired, al­low­ing lo­cals, new­com­ers and reg­u­lars alike to see the lake that’s been revered for cen­turies in an en­tirely new way. Where ca­sual com­forts ex­ist amongst clas­sic re­fine­ment. Where un­tamed ad­ven­ture re­sides amongst un­par­al­leled ac­com­mo­da­tions.

In­ter­est­ing De­sign Facts

• Wood panel art in lobby was cre­ated with an old picket fence from the Edge­wood site. The fence sur­rounded a Ju­lia Mor­gan de­signed small cabin on the prop­erty that no longer ex­ists.

• The grand stair­case of the great room was fab­ri­cated from lo­cal wood logs, and the carved lime­stone wall was cre­ated on site by a Bay Area stone carver.

The wood pan­el­ing of the great halls ceil­ing and other walls is wal­nut.

• The pat­terns and col­ors on the deer head art in the grand hall, were de­signed by the lodge’s in­te­rior de­sign team to rep­re­sent the Na­tive Amer­ica his­tory of Lake Ta­hoe.

• The rope ceil­ing in the Bistro restau­rant ties in the re­sort’s over­all color theme of Ta­hoe blues, browns, and nat­u­ral tones. The rope was fab­ri­cated in Spain, and then shipped to Aus­tralia where a rope artist fab­ri­cated the rope pan­els. The glass lights are a cus­tom de­signed fix­ture to com­plete the sub­tle nau­ti­cal theme in the Bistro space.

• Guest rooms cus­tom con­soles, fab­ri­cated by Fair­mont De­signs, have a his­tor­i­cal photo of Lake Ta­hoe and Mount Tal­lac in the im­age. The moun­tain and its sig­na­ture snow cross are vis­i­ble from the Edge­wood Ta­hoe beach.
