With one of the world’s most iconic freshwater lakes nearby, your mountain escape is elevated to a whole new level! Just 15 minutes away, Lake Tahoe is where families, recreational enthusiasts and outdoor adventure-seekers come to admire the incredible scenery and play in the impossibly-blue waters.
Lake Tahoe is North America’s largest Alpine Lake and the second deepest lake in the United States. Here, the cobalt-blue waters attract families to its shores all throughout the year, whether to play in the pristine water or to marvel at the unique scenery created by the snow-capped peaks of the Sierra Nevada mountains.
Whether your passion is kayaking, stand up paddle boarding, snorkeling, boating, jet skiing or fishing, it’s all just a short 15-20 minute drive from Schaffer’s Mill. To make the lake even more accessible, Schaffer’s Mill offers Concierge services for setting up a variety of guided water sports activities, excursions and boat rental services.
A memorable day-trip awaits at Emerald Bay State Park, located 12 miles north of South Lake. The park is known for its glacier-carved granite and is also home to two campgrounds, Boat-In Camp and Eagle Point. The most unique part of Emerald Bay is Fannette Island, the only island in Lake Tahoe and is home to the “Tea House” built in 1928.
Whether you are looking to relax on a sandy beach or hang out on the massive rocks that surround the lake, you’ll find plenty of options around Lake Tahoe. Sand Harbor is a local favorite, with ample parking, a family-friendly environment, dining options and boat-ramp access. For a more romantic excursion, head to Hidden Beach, where the scenery will leave you in awe.
Like Truckee, the area around Lake Tahoe has a huge variety of restaurants to enjoy. You won’t want to miss the Lone Eagle Grill, with epic views and a fine dining experience all around. The west shore is also home to several lakefront options, including the West Shore Café, Sunnyside and Gar Woods Grill & Pier.
When it’s time for a little bit of night life, South Lake Tahoe has an energy and vibe that is the perfect change of pace. Nightclubs and casinos offer dancing, dining, cocktails and gaming, all just a short drive from Schaffer’s Mill.
