Living in the Lake Tahoe Area

Lake Tahoe is big and deep, and the area around it contains multitudes. Two states (with two very different philosophies) share it, and the cities that hug its shore have their own impressive personalities. There are Old West mountain towns, high-rise party palaces, perfectly rustic ski villages, and ritzy hotels and residence clubs that are cities unto themselves. In the areas that aren’t set aside as nature preserves, great homes — and great second homes — climb up into the forests where their residents relax in some of the world’s most beautiful surrounds. The lake is an unblemished sapphire in the greenest of settings, and each community puts its love and respect for nature first. In the winter, the area can be blanketed by some of the deepest snowfall on the continent, and the summers open up miles of trails, rafting and fishing in the rivers, and a distinctly Tahoe boating culture.
