With many South Lake Tahoe short-term rentals losing their permits last year, the area is in need of more rooms for visitors and one local developer not only is filling that need but also breathing life into one of
South Shore’s aging motels. Jordan Korczak, who has lived in Tahoe since 2017, purchased the Trout Creek Motel which was built in 1956. The motel that had been used for the city’s Single-Room Occupancy program was in desperate need of some love. It is now the Tahoe Mountain Inn. In addition to owning the Inn, Korczak works in real estate and construction in town. He went to work immediately, gutting all 10 rooms. “I take pride in repurposing and bringing things back to life,” Korczak said. Everything in the rooms is new; tabletops, fireplaces, kitchenettes, bathroom sinks, ceiling fans, pinewood walls, and art. And everything is decorated to be hip, functional, and totally Tahoe, it’s what Korczak describes as a “modern mountain”. The wood Korczak used was purchased locally at Tahoe Truckee Lumber.

Tahoe Mountain Inn is located at 2650 Lake Tahoe Blvd, South Lake Tahoe, and is now accepting reservations. To book, visit www.tahoemountaininn.com
