Take your group wave running, kayaking, waterskiing, or snowmobiling. You can also combine an outdoor retreat at Zephyr Cove with a cruise for an unforgettable day.

The Lodge

Our traditional Tahoe-style lodge is a popular venue for group events, holiday parties and special celebrations. It features a large stone fireplace, a setting amid the pines along the lakeshore and a large deck for outdoor events. Our chef specializes in local and sustainable cuisine, and can customize a menu for your special event. Complete bar services are available, and we can help you coordinate decor and entertainment to complete your event. The Lodge is just steps from the beach and all the activity of Zephyr Cove Resort.

M.S. Dixie II

The M.S. Dixie II is built in the traditional Southern style of the steamboats that once cruised the Mississippi River. Built upriver on the Mississippi and transported in sections to Zephyr Cove, she made her first launch on Lake Tahoe in 1994. She is 151’ long and 33’ wide, and has three decks. The M.S. Dixie II hosts year-round dinner-dance and sightseeing cruises and is available or private functions, weddings and charters.

Tahoe Queen

The Tahoe Queen is the only authentic paddle wheeler cruising Lake Tahoe. She was built on the Mississippi River in 1983, then transported to Lake Tahoe and reassembled. This historic vessel is 144’ long and 33’ wide with three decks. In the summer, the Tahoe Queen offers daily cruises to Emerald Bay and Dinner Dance Cruises. Private deck exclusives, private charters, weddings and receptions are also available. She is known for her fun atmosphere and friendly service.

Tahoe Paradise

The Paradise is the largest yacht of its style on Lake Tahoe. She caters to any type of charter, from weddings to birthdays, anniversaries, reunions, private parties and corporate events. The 82’ yacht has a fully enclosed, climate controlled main deck with a beautiful forward atrium, full-service bar and galley.

Large picture windows provide a perfect setting with a panoramic view of the lake and Sierra Nevada Mountains. Her partially enclosed upper deck can easily be transformed into a dance floor for parties or receptions, allowing your guests to be entertained for the entire cruise.
