Leben am Lake TahoeSotheby's International Realty
According to author Mark Twain, Lake Tahoe is where you'll inhale air that is “very pure and fine... the same the angels breathe.”
Situated on the Nevada/California state line, lakefront enclaves, ski villages and golf resorts dot the 72-mile shoreline, each with their own distinct character and charm. The Lake is surrounded by more than a dozen world-class alpine resorts including Squaw Valley (home of the 1960 Winter Olympics), Alpine Meadows, Sugar Bowl and Vail Resorts owned Heavenly, Northstar and Kirkwood.
Spring brings out the golf clubs for Championship play in the surrounding communities of Incline Village and popular golf neighborhoods in Truckee including Martis Camp, Lahontan, Tahoe Donner and beyond. South Lake Tahoe's Edgewood Tahoe golf course is famous for hosting the annual NBC televised American Century Celebrity Golf Championships.
In Summer months, lakefront dining, outdoor concerts, beach activities and water sports take precedence as sailboats, classic wooden boats, stand up paddle boards, kayaks and water skis claim center stage. Fall paints the numerous hiking and biking trails with vibrant colors, drawing many to the sheer and natural beauty this year-round destination offers.
Lake Tahoe is the kind of place that generates excitement about your next trip back before you even leave. Between the outdoor lifestyle, natural splendor and Nevada’s tax hospitality, this spectacular region is recognized as place to relocate, diversify, and/or vacation.
For those who seek it, Tahoe offers a uniquely private and laid back, luxury lifestyle. Located within an hour’s drive of the Reno Lake Tahoe International Airport and just a three hour drive from the San Francisco Bay Area, getting there is hassle free.
