  • If you are in Lake Tahoe, you have to tour the Thunderbird Lodge. It is incredible and the history behind its origin is so fascinating, and it’s run by the nicest volunteers!! It still houses the famous Thunderbird Yacht that the Rat Pack hung out in. Also read up on the history on this, it was the most expensive yacht ever built at the time. It’s so beautiful. They let you see it and walk around it, but I don’t believe it it functional anymore. There’s also underground tunnels that have a dungeon, opium den and they still have all the original kitchen appliances!! The giant rocks along the side of the lodge against the dark blue water is just spectacular! There’s secret exits along the rocks from the tunnels too. I thought that was so cool. All that was hand-carved!
  • the most beautiful historical location at the Lake! I feel fortunate to be able to photograph weddings at this venue! also make sure you do the tour it is well worth it!
  • Great tour, well worth the price. The lodge and grounds are breathtaking and lots of interesting history and stories
  • Nice place to visit with plenty of photo opportunities. The history of the lodge fun
  • Loved hearing the history of this place! Awesome antique things.
