The Lodge at Nakoma
The new 42-room Lodge at Nakoma is an interior-corridor hotel built to complement existing resort amenities and Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Clubhouse. Designed by Cathexes to answer the question “what would Frank Lloyd Wright do today?”, they chose to emulate Wright’s principle rather than imitate his style.
The developer and architect decided upon a mountain modern feel for the 23,701-square-foot hotel, utilizing raw and natural materials in the construction such as tumbled travertine, antique woods, and stone. Exposed concrete floors, hot molded steel, and dramatic rooflines embrace features like floor-to-ceiling picture windows that welcome the High Sierra environs inside and overlook the eighth green of Nakoma’s Dragon golf course.
More About the Lodge at Nakoma
Guestrooms average 400 square feet and include ADA-accessible rooms, plus several that connect for families or friends travelling together, or those attending a special event at the resort. Three suite-like rooms are larger than the others—two featuring more expansive living spaces and guest baths with separate showers and tubs. Another executive suite offers a separate living area with sleeper sofa. Within each room are large picture windows; either two queen beds or one king; flat screen, wall-mounted televisions; free Wi-Fi internet; coffee makers; and shower stalls or tubs with showers.
A porte cachere elegantly ushers guests inside, and free shuttle service runs to the Clubhouse moments away, where dining in the resort’s Wigwam Room restaurant, imbibing at the FLoW Bar & Lounge, sweeping vistas from the expansive outdoor terrace, and a full-service spa can be found.
