Comment: My husband and I live on the west shore of Tahoe and can assist hikers in South Lake Tahoe to the south and near Donner/Boreal area near Highway 80 into Truckee to the north. We are able to host and provide a safe place to zero out for a day or two, fill up on some home cooked meals, get some laundry done and get a hot shower and rides to medical if necessary. We never let anyone leave without a generous supply of our famous oatmeal scotchie cookies, a cold pop, a candy bar and a ham and cheese sandwich on white bread. This next year, due to popular demand, we’ll include a piece of fruit in that go pack. The only thing we ever ask in return is that while you’re here, that you check in with your family to let them know you’re ok. We do have a Border collie named Addie who will expect to be petted so please no one with pets. We are first come, first dibs in the guest room, but we have a pretty good sized deck and air beds can handle overflow.

Drakesbad is open to hikers and seems this year, with new management, is more hiker friendly than with the last managers.

I saw this information online and asked Piper’s Mom if I could post it up here and so here it is: Hope this helps you along your hike!

“Drakesbad is open to hikers and seems this year, with new management, is more hiker friendly than with the last managers.  Breakfast and lunch are about $12-14.  There is a special hiker dinner for about $14 and you do not need reservations.  If you want the 5-star menu it is about $22 and reservations are required.  There is no laundry, being renovated.  Do your laundry in Chester.  There is a new shower for hikers only and pool use will be considered on a hiker-by-hiker basis.  All of this is from my memory because I am away from my information, but it’s close.  Good luck, it’s a wonderful place.

Piper’s Mom”
