My husband and I stayed one night this past weekend at Heavenly Valley Lodge for our 8 year anniversary (first night without kids in a long time!). Linda and Johan were so friendly...Linda showed us to our room and pointed out that the heater was the gas fireplace (best ambiance I've ever had in a hotel room! It was a quiet little lodge tucked in the beautiful forest, but super close to Heavenly Village and the lake, so it was perfect for exploring and grabbing dinner. Breakfast was phenomenal and Linda and Johan were so attentive to everyone's needs. Johan was very knowledgeable about hikes and the surrounding area. If you stay here, you have to go to Fallen Leaf Lake, just a short drive away. There are several hikes of varying difficulty levels near/around the lake, and there is a spectacular waterfall during the snow-melt season! We did the Angora Lakes/Clark Trail and it was just what we were looking for: a challenging hike away from the crowds (especially challenging because of the snow melt, so we were hiking through the snow and through the temporary "creek" of snow-melt water). I'd love to go back to Heavenly Valley Lodge someday! Thank you Linda and Johan for your lovely bed and breakfast!
