Consider honeymooning at a place you can return to year after year. Not long ago, The Ritz-Carlton Residences opened in enchanting Lake Tahoe. Perched mid-mountain at Northstar ski area, The Residences are comprised of 23 luxury penthouses offering elevated mountain living. The ski-in/ski-out residences offer whole ownership for year round enjoyment of one of the world’s greatest outdoor playgrounds. Winter activities include cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, tubing and ice-skating. During the summer, owners can enjoy more than 2,815 miles of trails, mountain biking, fishing, river rafting, golf, and more. Dine at Manzanita for an organic regional experience. Adding an element of design, Jay Jeffers, named one of the country’s top designers by Elle Décor Magazine, has put his modern take on a typical mountain home in three custom show homes. For an added fee, you can keep his California-mountain whimsical décor. His creative use of color and cosmopolitan design are the perfect complement to The Ritz-Carlton legacy of service excellence. The units on the top floor have vaulted ceilings, great for welcoming a snowstorm. There are also some units located on a third level private wing near the spa. They feature extended balconies overlooking the pool.
