What to See & Do

Although activities surround you at every corner of Zephyr Cove Resort, we encourage you to find some time in your itinerary to explore a bit more of Tahoe’s rich history, breathtaking views and a little change of scenery. Here are a few of our favorite points of interest.

Built in 1903, the rustic but grand, wood-panelled, three-storied Ehrman Mansion was equipped with the very best utility systems, and was surrounded by carefully planted trees, lawns and flowerbeds. Today, the house, a fascinating example of the " opulent" tradition in Tahoe summer homes, serves as a house museum, complete with furnishings.

Grover Hot Springs State Park is located on the east side of the Sierra at the edge of the Great Basin Province, characterized by open pine forest, and sagebrush and meadows. The park has a pool complex with a hot pool and a swimming pool hot springs, a campground, picnic area and hiking trails.

A century ago, the Tallac Historic Site was known as the "Grandest Resort in the World" and the summer retreats for three of San Francisco Bay Area's socially elite families. Today, the remains of the resort and the restored estates attract thousands of visitors annually to recapture this bygone and significant era in Tahoe's history.

Considered one of the finest examples of Scandinavian architecture in North America, Vikingsholm Castle sits on the shore of Emerald Bay with astonishing views of South Lake Tahoe. Built in 1929, according to the wish of Lora J. Knight, a wealthy Chicago widow who purchased this then-isolated site and had it constructed into a Norse fortress from 800 A.D, Vikingsholm represents unique blend of art and history.
