Tahoe Queen to get makeover

The Tahoe Queen prepares to dock at Camp Richardson Monday afternoon. The untraditional landing required the boat to dock in less then four feet of water.

The Tahoe Queen paddlewheeler will undergo a half-million dollar renovation in time to celebrate its 25th anniversary in 2008, Lake Tahoe Cruises, operated by ARAMARK Harrison Lodging, announced Wednesday.

The renovations will result in a new and updated, luxury saloon-style look and feel to the Tahoe Queen, the only authentic paddlewheeler on Lake Tahoe. The Queen will be open for minimized operations from November through mid-January to accommodate the first phase of interior improvements.

The boat will be open from mid-January through mid-March to operate as the world’s only known ski shuttle, as it has done for more than a decade, to North Shore ski resorts. It will be out of operation again for exterior renovations and additional interior improvements through early spring.

Renovations will include a new wooden railing to wrap around the entire third deck for a more pleasant cocktail and sunset experience, a new brushed-brass look to all deck railings, an open deck with chandelier, new lounge-style furniture, bar stools placed at all bars, a decreased maximum occupancy for a more comfortable dining experience and more.
