We are both professionals who love the lake and the area. We originally owned the property with friends and have renovated over the years as we became sole owners.
There is only one Lake Tahoe. The geography of the land is inspiring to all that visit. The local residents are second home owners like us are working to maintain and restore Tahoe to it's natural and pristine beauty. Our home is in great location on the colorful 'gold coast of the lake' within walking distance of the lake's beach itself and many natural amenities.
