Description from the owner
A true early Tahoe home offering a unique experience blending tradition and charm with luxurious amenities, located at the lake's edge on spacious forested grounds far from the road. Enjoy 120 feet of private beach, lakeside terraces with chaises, and panoramic sunrise to sunset views across Lake Tahoe.
Live the early Tahoe glory days--in the original 1910 boathouse carefully updated to modern standards, with a tasteful mix of fresh furnishings, vintage details, and neat Tahoe antiques.
