2021 Edgewood Tahoe Resort - Day 1

Over two months ago, I planned a getaway for Sharon and I to the Edgewood Tahoe Resort. We had dinner and then brunch there in November of 2018 and talked about coming back again some day. Sharon knew that we were taking off for a couple of days, but didn't know where we were going.

Leaving Carmicheal about 10 am, we stopped for sandwiches at Subway in South Lake Tahoe. The area was a zoo. I frankly hadn't considered how busy Tahoe was in the summer.

We were lucky to get a parking space at the trailhead at the Lam Watch Nature Trail. We hiked down to Nevada Beach on Lake Tahoe and found a picnic table for lunch. Afterwards, we hiked back looping north of the meadows. In total, we covered about 2.9 miles in an hour and eleven minutes. I am becoming a big fan of the AllTrails app.

The trail was just north of the resort. We pulled up to the hotel about 2:45 pm. They had our room ready. One nice touch was that they took our golf clubs and told us that they would deliver them to us at the course in the morning.

After getting settled in the room, we wandered the property. We checked out the restaurant. Sharon shopped in the Pro Shop, while I had a beverage at Brooks Bar and Deck.

As we were wandering back to the hotel, it started to get very windy and rained off and on. This turned out to be a blessing; more on that in the next post.

We finished the night with dinner at the Edgewood Restaurant. For appetizers, we split Heirloom Tomato Panzanella [House Pulled Mozzarella/ Bitter Greens/ Black and White Pearls/ Basil Chutney] and Hudson Valley Foie Gras [Walnut Brioche / Roasted Placer Apples / Granny Smith Sphere / 50 Year Aged Balsamic / Red Ribbon Sorrel / Candied Apple Chip]. For entrees, I had Pinecone Smoked Elk Loin [Summer Squash / Fine Herb Black Barley / Roasted Corn Custard / Caramel Corn / Spiced Quince Glace De Viande], while Sharon had Pan Seared Branzino [Young Fennel / Baby Artichokes / Tiny Snap Peas/ Summer Heirloom Tomatoes/ Pink Lemon Beurre Blanc]. We split a bottle of Sea Smoke Southing Pinot Noir 2018. Mine was the better entree.
