“Treat the Earth well. It was not given to you by your parents. It was loaned to you by your children.” - Kenyan Proverb


The Alpenrose Inn utilizes biodegradable shampoos, lotions and soaps made with natural ingredients that are packaged in recyclable tubes and cartons made with recycled materials. In addition to earth- friendly shampoos and soaps, the Inn uses primarily bio-friendly cleaning products. The City of South Lake Tahoe does not currently offer a recycle program to individual home or business owners, however, all city refuse is taken to a central location to be recycled.


It is recommended that guests re-use their towels and linens (we change the linens every third day of your stay, except when otherwise requested), vastly reducing water, electrical, and gas consumption.


The Alpenrose Inn has greatly reduced its energy consumption by replacing all  lighting with low-energy fluorescent lights and reduced water consumption by installing water conservation shower heads in every unit. Wherever paper is required, the Alpenrose Inn uses 100% recycled paper.
