South Lake Tahoe’s Best Western Station House Inn and Lewmarnel’s Food & Spirits under new ownership

SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. — The Best Western Station House Inn and its Lewmarnel’s Food & Spirits are under new ownership.

Oliver Hospitality, a Nashville-based hotel and restaurant management company, announced earlier this week that it acquired the hotel and popular dining spot.

The company plans to start renovations on the hotel and restaurant in the fourth quarter of this year, according to a press release. Oliver intends to rebrand the property as a vintage motel called Station House Inn with a revamped design, food and beverage offerings and social areas.

Oliver boasts a proven track record of acquiring and transforming properties into creatively distinctive hotels, including Hotel Clermont in Atlanta, Fairlane Hotel in Nashville and The Oliver Hotel in Knoxville, Tennessee.

Oliver cited Lake Tahoe’s status as a world-renowned destination and the hotel and restaurant’s location near the popular Stateline area as reasons for its interest in the property.

“The Station House Inn is one of the best properties in the South Lake Tahoe village,” Philip Welker, partner with Oliver Hospitality, said in a press release. “We are excited to have this opportunity to do something creative and special in South Lake Tahoe.”

The Station House Inn will undergo a comprehensive renovation that will touch all guestrooms, the outdoor pool and deck, as well as re-concepting the hotel’s restaurant. Station House Inn is located at 901 Park Ave.
