David Walley’s Hot Springs

March 7, 2008

Lots of people know about Lake Tahoe’s crystal clear waters, but did you know that there’s a famous hot-spring resort just 20 minutes away from its south shore? Walley’s Resort hosts 7 natural mineral hot-spring pools, a spa, and some of the best dining and wine in the area. In its 135 year history it’s hosted both Mark Twain and Clark Gable, so it’s the place to go if you want celebrity caliber relaxation.

Hot Spring Pools

Mineral infused water heated beneath the earth’s crust bubbles up to the surface into 7 different pools. You can relax in these pools in the shadow of the High Sierra Mountains, and enjoy a steam room and dry saunas.


Walley’s offers both Swedish and deep tissue massage as well as a whole menu of facials, including a couple just for men!

Wine and Dine

Wine Spectator magazine has given Walley’s wine selection an award of excellence. They offer 300 wines, 34 by the glass. The contemporary American cuisine is some of the best around too. In addition to the regular menu items, the chef prepares a new special entrĂ©e every night using the fresh ingredients at hand.
