About David Hopp

I am a 2nd. Generation Master Builder, Architect, and a very happy father to Kylie.

I began my career very early under the mentor-ship of my father, Robert Hopp. I started working with my father at an early age, always knowing I would grow up to design and build the best and most beautiful homes, remodels and additions possible.

Bob, as most people called him, had a very strong work ethic. He took a great deal of pride in the work he did for others, always putting forth his best efforts and treating people fairly. Whether it was building a bench or turning out a 100,000+ sq. ft. industrial complex, his “do it right & get it done” attitude built him a reputation that preceded his arrival on the job site that wasn’t measured in minutes, but by miles.

Clients who hired him knew in advance that when he made them a promise, he fulfilled that promise. And what I remember, most of all is that he loved it. Every minute of it! He loved the challenge of “getting it done - on time, and done right.” He was gregarious and hard working, almost to a fault. He loved to entertain. Current events, political commentary, and conversation were probably second only to his love of the written word. And his love for the written word was eclipsed only by the love we saw demonstrated towards Lois, his wife and my mother. He did so much for his family, and friends. Because his parents left this world when he was still very young, he understood, first-hand, how important family is, what it means to have one, and be part of it. As it is said, “The fruit doesn’t fall far from the tree,” and I gleaned many wonderful attributes from working with dad.

These are the cornerstones, from which I fashion my life, the business, and fatherhood.

Outdoor mountain sports, woodworking, and poetry are my avocations.

Why David Hopp chose Tahoe Vista

This is our home, in North Lake Tahoe, and after 30 years of living in Tahoe, it was the ambiance of this community that captured our hearts, and its proximity to ALL the activities in which we like to participate.

What makes this lodge unique

A unique connection to ALL of life through the unparallel home's finishes, artwork, hand-crafted furniture, and poetry created by the owner, and what lies beyond the doors of this home and its superb location.

EXCELLENT EXPERIENCE IN EVERY ASPECT!

  • 5 of 5
We chose this house originally because of its vicinity to a festival we attended at the nearby regional park, and it turned out to totally exceed all of our expectations!! Every aspect of the house was absolutely beautiful, and everything was in perfect condition. It was a pleasure to work with the owner David, he checked us in and made sure we were comfortable with the house and made us aware of local restaurants and amenities. We will definitely be back next year for the festival and tell all of our friends!!

recommend to all

  • 4 of 5
Beautiful home close to all of the action but it was a little weird that the owner had to meet us to discuss ALL of the rules .
After a long drive the last thing my kids and I wanted to do was take a guided tour for an hour to discuss the entire house.
I would still recommend to anyone , truly a beautiful home.

Owner's Response: Dear Nadine, (Scott's wife)
We are glad you enjoyed your stay, and that we provided you, your family, and friends a wonderful experience that was donated through a fundraiser.
I personally apologize if the 20 minute tour inconvenienced you, your family, and friends; the guided tour we provide all our paying guests is to ensure they understand how certain components of our home function, which keeps them from losing their deposit due to improperly operating certain items in our home, and makes their stay more comfortable and enjoyable, i.e. Jacuzzi Jets that will water the walls if not turned on in a certain order, how the trash compactor functions, so you don't have to continuously take the trash out during your stay or create stains in the hardwood floor from piling it on the floor, instead of taking it out to the enclosure, how the heaters, fans, fireplaces, skylight work to keep the house warm or cool depending upon the weather conditions, where the cooking items, pots, pans, trivets - so the table doesn't get burned, and where the spices, oils, hot chocolate, coffee, etc. are.
Beyond that our "Rules" are simple and can be conveyed to understanding guests in a few minutes:
1. Because of the wood floors, we ask that NO SHOES be worn inside our home, as it causes damage to the floors, which serves no one.
2. Due to me having some significant sensitivities, we ask that our guests respect the following requests:
a. NO SMOKING.
b. NO PETS.
3. For obvious reasons, we also do not allow illicit materials, drugs or firearms anywhere on the premises.
We welcome anyone, regardless of race, gender, age, or orientation, if they can understand and are willing to comply with these simple standards and the other items we outline in our "Rules" that are provided to each guest BEFORE they make a reservation and provide payment.

Chalet rented for annual family vacation, seven adults & 4 yr. old grandson. Chalet as advertised, spacious & rustic, very clean, and well appointed. All of our kitchen utensils & bath needs needs were provided. Owner, Dave, was very responsive and answered all our questions before & during our stay. Very near the lake, beaches, shopping, casinos, resorts and good restaurants like Lanza's & Spindlehoffs. No question, we made the right choice. Thank you DAVE.

North Shore's Finest

North Shore's Finest
  • 5 of 5
I've stayed here several times, in several seasons, and each time I visit it feels like my home away from home. When I walk in the door, all my usual chaos disappears as I'm in a place of complete peace and quiet. I've stayed in other places in Tahoe, but no other home (including lakefronts) make me feel the way this home does.
The home is beautifully and artistically designed with the complimentary colors, furnishings, floors, and artwork. You really feel totally at home.
The home is also conveniently located to anywhere you'd want to be in the North Shore. I would recommend this home to anyone really looking for the finest Tahoe has to offer. In my book, this is the only place to stay in Tahoe!

This was by far one of the best homes I've stayed at in Tahoe! The photos you see on VRBO are exactly the way the home looks! 360-degree view with windows all around, spacious bedrooms, and great living room/kitchen setup for hanging out, drinking wine and having dinner! The home is amazingly beautiful and the owner, David, was very responsive and welcoming throughout the entire process for booking the place. He texted me a few day before our arrival and asked what type of coffee we like so he could prepare it (dark, medium, light). I'd recommend this place to everyone and hope that we can stay here again! Thank you!
