The West Shore of Lake Tahoe offers a range of housing options, from historic and elegant lakefront estates to mountain modern family homes to quaint ski cabins tucked between towering pines. Buying a home on the West Shore means embarking on a true mountain lifestyle.
Access to West Shore gems like Emerald Bay and Desolation Wilderness offers amazing hiking, high alpine lakes, and world-famous fishing waters. In winter, Sugar Pine State Park grooms Nordic tracks and most neighborhoods offer backyard access to miles of wilderness trails.
Boutique and locally owned grocery stores dot the West Shore every few miles. Fine dining establishments like Sunnyside Resort, Chambers Landing, Swiss Lakewood, and the West Shore Café serve delicious upscale experiences, while popular joints like Firesign Café and West Shore Pizza are local staples.
The West Shore may be known for deep snows in winter and cool water temps in summer, it also boasts a deeply rooted community, where the neighborhood plumber is dining beside the doctor, both of whom skied or paddle boarded earlier that morning.
