Live the early Tahoe glory days of the teens and twenties! The boathouse was part of one of Lake Tahoe's earliest estates, constructed beginning in 1906. Authentic antique details and decor embellish the original wood paneling on all walls and ceilings throughout the house, and a tasteful mix of antiques and fresh furnishings make the home comfortable and interesting. Stone, oak, cherry, and newly carpeted floors warm the house along with four antique wood stoves. The home has lots of space with several view-filled living areas, a large country kitchen/dining room, and the wrap-around deck on the upper level; and three bedrooms and an attached one-bedroom apartment on the lower level. Two rustic cabins are included in summer, but they are closed in winter.  Completely updated with thermal pane windows,full  insulation, natural gas baseboard heat, and tasty local well water, the house is comfortable for both winter and summer vacations.

Spacious forested grounds with outdoor stone fireplace, patio and ping-pong table, level lakeside lawn, and a sand beach give lots of areas for playing and conversing. Relax on chaises on the lakeside terrace above the beach. Gas and charcoal grills for outdoor cooking are on the lakeside deck. Play badminton in a forest clearing and croquet on the lakeside lawn. Feed the ducks and geese from the original boat ramp that slants into the water.  In winter, downhill skiing is a mile away at Homewood Mountain Resort, and cross-country skiing is a half-mile away in Sugar Pine Point State Park.

Appropriate for discerning guests who will appreciate the historic charm of the home, the antique furnishings and upscale furniture are intriguing and comfortable. Fully equipped for gracious entertaining, your guests will enjoy the private setting far from the main road. The property is accessed via a narrow lane a block off the main road.

A meandering paved bike path makes its way along the shore to Tahoe City, down the Truckee River all the way to Squaw Valley.
