Where is it?


Tahoma is a quiet, friendly neighborhood nestled between the mountains and Tahoe shore. Ten-minute drive to Tahoe City with great restaurants and shopping. Beautiful lake-side drive to either Kings Beach or Incline Village (North Tahoe shore), or to bustling South Lake Tahoe. Just a few minutes bike ride to either lake beach or forest paths.

Buzzy restaurants
Fire Sign Cafe - outstanding breakfast/lunch; Chamber's Landing Bar & Grill - fantastic view right on the lake, just minutes drive away. Other places in nearby Tahoe City that are great: River Grill (high end), Fat Cat Bar & Grill (huge awesome burgers), Tahoe Tap Haus (great menu selection & excellent quality) and good beer selection
Cool bars
Fat Cat is a fun place to hang out in Tahoe City; South Tahoe has the best selection of great bars (The Loft is one of our favorites for quality drinks and atmosphere)
Retail therapy
Lots of shops to browse in nearby Tahoe City. For more selection, try King's Beach or Incline Village. For serious shoppers, South Tahoe is your destination.
Bit of culture
Vikingsholm Castle in nearby Emerald Bay; tour the century-old Hellman-Ehrman Mansion and grounds in Ed Z'berg (
Walks in the park
Ed Z'berg Sugar Pine Point State Park, one block from house. Half a dozen other parks within a short drive -- so many to explore!
Spot of exercise
Lake sports (kayaking), forest hiking / mountain biking right outside your door. Legendary Tahoe Rim Trail circles the entire lake, with a huge variety of trails of all lengths and difficulty.
Day tripping
We regularly day-trip to hiking and beach spots all around the lake.
