We honestly loved this place so much - we returned multiple times just to enjoy the scenery. October is a GORGEOUS time of year to see the leaves change. The water is so clear and it is absolutely worth every moment spent there.

We saw "Love's Labor's Lost" here. As usual, another awesome view on Lake Tahoe. Easy access off of Rt 28. Food & beverage stands, flushing rest rooms, and Shakespearian entertainment.
