West Lake Tahoe
The California side of Lake Tahoe, the West Shore, is comprised of a number of small hamlets ranging about 14 miles from Tahoe City to Rubicon Bay.
Sunnyside, Tahoe Park, Talmont Estates
The areas known as Sunnyside and Tahoe Park are names used interchangeably to describe the quaint neighborhood just 2 miles south of Tahoe City. This walkable neighborhood hosts Sunnyside Resort, West Shore Market, Firesign Cafe, West Shore Sports and other local businesses. One of the older neighborhoods on the West Shore but also one to the most desirable, you’ll find historic cottages intermingled with new remodels. Most of the neighborhood is offered access to Tahoe Park Beach Homeowner’s Association with gated stone beach, two piers, buoy field, picnic and BBQ areas, basketball and volleyball courts. Travel up the hill above this are to Talmont Estates via Tahoe Park Heights Drive and you’ll find a sunny neighborhood with many opportunities for a lake view home. Bordering Paige Meadows, Talmont offers residents hiking, biking, and cross-countty skiing within the neighborhood. Most of the homes in Talmont are offered access to Tahoe Park Beach as well.
Three miles south of Tahoe City is the small neighborhood of Pineland. Developed after WWII by Bert Anderson, this neighborhood is a mix of historic cabins (some original Bert Anderson’s), renovations and new construction. Unique to Pineland is access to Ward Creek with public access trails along the creek and traveling up the Ward Canyon residents in Pineland can use the winter shuttle to access the chairlift on the backside of Alpine Meadows. Within walking distance from most parts of the neighborhood are Sunnyside resort, Firesign Cafe and Kilner Park with pickle ball, tennis courts, playground, basketball court, picnic area and volleyball court.
Timberland is an older subdivision a mile south of Sunnyside/Tahoe Park with “Old Tahoe” style cabins and some newer rustic style homes. Some homes are of “collector” quality rich in history. Quaint and rustic, it is only six blocks long and two blocks wide surrounded by state and national forest and beautiful meadows with old growth timber. Timberland has its own water system and its sweet, untreated water has been rated by the state as one of the best quality in Northern California. The neighborhood makeup is mostly second homes with a few full-time residents. Hurricane Bay public beach is a short walk from the neighborhood.
Just south of Eagle Rock and north of Homewood is the quiet neighborhood of Tahoe Pines. Backing to creekside trails and walking distance to the HOA stone beach with pier makes this sleepy little neighborhood a desirable place to be.
Homewood is great location on the west shore, comprised of a few different pocket neighborhoods, there are a lot of homes to choose from and the proximity to Homewood Mountain Resort makes them ideal for skiers. Homewood Mountain Resort owns over 1260 acres of the best skiing and snowboarding terrain in the Sierras featuring incredible views of the lake. Homewood is in the process of a new master plan featuring new day lodges, lifts, housing, retail and vacation rentals.
Chamberlands is a vacation-oriented community. With a lake side community pool, tennis courts and shuttle service to the beach and nearby ski areas, it is desirable for rentals in both summer and winter. Values are reflected in some degree as to whether or not the home has “joined” the Chamberlands Beach and Mountain Club amenities but all have access to one portion of the beach and the public restaurant. Lakefront homes in this area are very prestigious.
Tahoma provides low to moderate-priced housing and is popular with the locals. Many older summer cabins are being upgraded due to the affordability of homes and the recent erosion control project providing widening and paving of streets. The end of the neighborhood backs to Sugar Pine Point State Park. The Tahoe Cedars subdivision of Tahoma has HOA beach/pier/buoy access shared with the lakefront Water’s Edge condominium complex. This area has much to offer for the price.
Down the West Shore, Meeks Bay is perfect for summer fun with one Tahoe’s best white sandy beaches and open settings. This area abounds with lake view homes and is predominantly a resort area.
Located in El Dorado county just north of South Lake Tahoe. It’s in this small enclave that you will find a grand paradise with gorgeous setting that takes your breath away. If you want beauty, look no farther. You’ll be surrounded by postcard quality scenery such as Emerald Bay and D.L. Bliss State Park with stunning private and public beaches. Rubicon Point is where Lake Tahoe’s deepest point plunges, 1,411” below the shoreline. You’ll also find some of Tahoe’s most prestigious estates along the beautiful sandy beach appropriately coined the “Gold Coast”.
