HopeValleyFall2017

Taken just a few days ago, Tahoe is beauty beyond words. The aspens are every color of gold and orange and the wind has been kind enough to let the leafed trees show off all their glory. It’s shoulder season now and rates are very attractive. Come visit! Stay awhile.

It’s one HOT summer all over California and what better place to escape the heat but Tahoe where water sports are the play of the day. From kayaking to water skiing to just plain getting in and swimming, it doesn’t get much better. Try the new see-through kayaks and test the lake’s famous clarity.
