Although not well marked, it is worth the search for this lakefront summer mansion on the western shore of Lake Tahoe. Just sit on the front porch for awhile overlooking the lake for a relaxing respite. Pretend you own the place!

Located just west of South Lake Tahoe, this group of summer “cottages” are lined up on the south shore of the lake. You can walk from one another enjoying both the architecture and the beauty of the lakeshore.
