5 Lake Tahoe Valentine Dates for you and Your Sweetheart

While this is the month of love, we hope you'll find these romantic Lake Tahoe suggestions helpful for any time of year. Romance is alive and well in Lake Tahoe – from the way that the sun casts a cotton candy alpenglow on the mountains, to the delicious and romantic culinary options to the comfortable luxury of a winter cabin escape. Escape to Lake Tahoe any time of year to enjoy the best in romance and relaxation.


When your heart's desire is a bite to eat, tuck into these intimate restaurants:

Dog & Bear Tavern - Our favorite neighborhood Tavern serving rustic California cuisine in a gorgeous and cozy space on the West Shore. Dog & Bear Tavern offers a thoughtfully crafted menu of locally sourced and organic food including pizzas, salads and wonderfully tasty appetizers (hello burrata!). Their wine list is unmatched with lovely European and California options. It's a casual yet elevated experience that will be sure to impress your other half.

West Shore Cafe - With its breathtakingly beautiful mountaintop setting paired with stunning lakefront views, West Shore Café makes for a gorgeous Valentines Date location. Lakeside lovers can enjoy the alpenglow on their private pier after a romantic dinner, giving lovebirds the perfect end to a Lake Tahoe Valentine’s Day.

Swiss Lake Wood - French and German dishes are on the menu at Swiss Lakewood. It's such a cute little restaurant but the food is what will have you coming back on every trip. Enjoy perfectly cooked fillet steaks, prime rib roast and ribs and finish the night with a chocolate mousse or soufflé that will knock your socks off. The wine list is also very versatile, everyone can find something that suits their taste.


Pamper one another and treat each other to a spa day! Several of the most luxurious spas in the area feature options for couples, so you both can relax and unwind in one of the most beautiful places in the world. Our favorite local spa is the Spa at the Resort at Squaw Creek. This is the ultimate place to treat yourselves. The spa features a jaw dropping stunning view of Olympic Valley right outside and offers a list of different treatments, packages, and massages and also includes a special Couples Massage package; $280 per person for 90 minutes. You can check out the Full Spa Menu here.


Among the mountains and the fresh alpine air, the Northstar Village Ice Skating Rink is the perfect setting for your Valentine’s Day date, especially at the end of the night when the lights of the rink shimmer and shine. Enjoy a refreshing cocktail or two by the outdoor fire pits surrounding the rink or take a few laps around the rink together. And if skating is not your thing, it’s always fun to just visit the village for shopping and cocktails.


The best part of spending your Valentine’s Day in Lake Tahoe is that you’re surrounded by glistening snow this time of year, especially this year (2023)! Explore the winter splendor of Lake Tahoe with a ski or snowboarding day at Homewood Ski Resort or Palisades Tahoe. Both resorts offer plenty of spots to cozy around fire pits or the lodge and take a couple's break. For an outdoor activity that’s a little more playful and requires much less skill, head to the sledding hill at Granlibakken! You’ll both feel like a kid again as you race each other down the hill. And when you’ve both had your fill of sledding, enjoy a s’more because what could be more perfect?

RELAX AT A COZY CABIN - Hygge Barn that is

Our charming little barn shaped cabin is perfect for a romantic getaway. When the sun begins to set and the windows glow it will lure you in like a moth to a flame. Gorgeous cathedral-esq windows allow for the outside to be a part of the inside while remaining private and romantic. Cozy by the fireplace with a glass of your favorite, dance to your favorite records, play a boardgame, cook a meal together in the fully equipped kitchen or just snuggle in the large cozy bedroom overlooking a magical winter wonderland.
