Cedar House Sport Hotel gets nod from Outside’s Travel Awards

TAHOE/TRUCKEE, Calif. — Outside magazine, America’s leading active lifestyle and adventure travel magazine has selected The Cedar House Sport Hotel as an honoree in Outside’s 2014 Travel Awards.

The Travel Awards celebrate the top destinations, companies, products, and travel providers that inspire people to participate in an active lifestyle. The Cedar House Sport Hotel was honored as the place to stay in Lake Tahoe which won “Best Lake.”

“We designed The Cedar House Sport Hotel as a year round base camp for outdoor adventure,” said Patty Baird, owner of the Truckee-based hotel and home to Tahoe Trips & Trails.

Outside tapped its global network of correspondents who traveled across America to Belize, Switzerland, Italy, and beyond to identify the best new adventures, stunning lakes, gorgeous lodges and hotels, family vacations, secret getaways, high-tech airports, and foodie hot spots.

The result is more than 50 spectacular trips, plus the best travel apps, tour guides, gear, tips for traveling green, and advice for traveling solo. The entire list of honorees will appear in Outside’s April issue (on newsstands March 18), and is posted online at www.outsideonline.com/travelawards.

“Whether you’re looking to go big for an expedition, splurge on a luxurious paradise, or plan an epic family trip, Outside has unearthed fifty travel gems that will inspire you to renew that passport,” said Outside Editor Chris Keyes. The 2014 awards note, “Lake Tahoe is also hardly a secret, but there’s a way to get your own slice of the Sierra oasis … stay near Truckee at the Cedar House Sport Hotel. The owners have plotted out new custom escapes, providing the gear, food, maps, and guide.”

The Cedar House offers 40 boutique rooms that embody eco-simplicity with a luxurious twist, an on-site event center and an award-winning restaurant called Stella. Adventure concierge and guiding servies offer the ultimate outdoor getaway. Tahoe Trips & Trails, the property’s in-house adventure guiding and concierge company, has launched a new line of summer 2014 treks and backpacking trips. For more information visit TahoeTrips.com.
