Stella's is Cedar House Sports Hotel's in house restaurant (serving breakfast to guests only except for scheduled events).

While visiting friends in Truckee, we joined them for what have become sell-out "pop-up" dinners at Stella. The night we were there, "Casablanca" was the theme. The service and everything on the Mediterranean menu was 5-star!

These people know how to cook! And all in a custom built beautiful facility! The pressed beams and faux metal rafter supports are like fine art thanks to Jeff & Patty's minds!
