Sightseeing

This is an incredible spot down a 1.7 mile hike through the woods at Emerald Bay. It's a 500 vertical descent, but it's worth it. Best used between April and November. You can hang out for the day at the beach and catch a tour of the castle.

This is our go-to for short hikes from the house. Once you hike over the ridge, you'll be treated to an incredible spot to hang out, rest on the beach, have a picnic, swim in the lake, or just explore the waterfront.

This is an awesome beach to visit, especially if you've got your dog with you. During the off-season, you can park on the road (lake side) if it is safe. Usually, there will be a line of cars parked as well. Between Memorial Day Weekend through October, you can park for a fee near the beach.

Gorgeous spot to visit and hike. If you can get out to the middle of the bay there is a little tea house that was originally built as part of the Vikingsholm property.

We absolutely love Angora Lake. More of a spring/summer destination. During the open season, make sure to get early to grab a parking spot. If you arrive too late, you'll have to hike in. From the parking lot, it's less than a mile hike to Angora Lake. Because parking is limited, it never gets too crowded. You can rent kayaks, rowboats, and paddleboards from the little shop. They also make great sandwiches and are famous for their homemade lemonade.

Ski resorts

This is one of our favorite ski spots. We love it because we pack a lunch and keep it in a cooler in the car. When it's time for lunch we just grab it and eat at the outdoor picnic tables nearby. It's also one of the most economical ski resorts, but prices have been going up. Book online in advance for the best rates.

This is a great place for beginner/intermediate skiers/snowboarders. The mountain isn't too big, and it's not too small either. You can buy tickets in advance online or at a ski rental place in town. They usually have a discount.

This is a trail nearby that takes you all the way to Angora Lake. We've never made it that far! But it's a great trail that follows the crest of the mountain with fantastic views all around. Open all year around.

An incredible view of Emerald Bay and Lake Tahoe here right off of Hwy 89. Take some great photos by the falls and if you're up for it hike the trail to get to the falls. If you're super adventurous keep going all the way to Eagle Lake.
