The property provides one of the best views of Lake Tahoe and has an amazing dock to swim off of. Note that as of July 2017 the directions in trip advisor are wrong. So you should Google map to the estate on your own.

We were lucky to get in on the last tour of the day. The guide was very informative. It was interesting to contrast this family's lifestyle with other estates on Lake Tahoe.
