The West Shore includes homes from Tahoe City's west shore (from the intersection of Hwy 89), Sunnyside, Tahoe Pines, Homewood and Tahoma, down to Meeks Bay and Rubicon Bay - near Emerald Bay and the Desolation Wilderness. Steeped in history, authentic style, and sheer beauty, Tahoe's West Shore invites visitors to relish a classic Tahoe vacation. The locally-coined phrase, “the West Shore is the best shore," says it all. This stretch of the lake, from Tahoe City toward Emerald Bay, is graced with spectacular lakefront estates, cozy cabins, and elegant historic homesteads. The West Shore has a very neighborly feel where friends catch up over coffee at the Tahoe House bakery, and impromptu gatherings form on area piers in the summer. Bring or rent bikes to take advantage of the paved bike path that goes all the way into Tahoe City, which is perfect for cruising with the family on a warm summer day. In the winter, Homewood Mountain Resort is just a short drive away. Deemed "the gem of Lake Tahoe's west shore" by SKI Magazine, Homewood offers panoramic views of the lake from every trail. Sugar Pine State Park offers year-round activities, including access to Tahoe's beautiful shoreline during summer and lakefront cross-country ski and snowshoe trails during winter.
