Lake Tahoe Island

Bet you did not know that Lake Tahoe in Nevada/California has an Island? I was really surprised to find one when touring the area. The name is Fannette Island and it rises 150 feet high. Today there are stone ruins still to be seen but in 1929 there was a stone "castle" built on the island. Mrs. Lora J. Knight built it and called it her "Tea House". The main area was 250 square feet and she had her friends over for tea. I would have enjoyed an invitation to that party!

What fun to dress up, ride in a boat to such a charming destination and have tea with your closest friends! We should all be pampered that way.

I love quirky off the beaten path places and will help you find your perfect spot for a quick getaway or an extended trip. Call today, 512-805-9500.
