There are a few places around the lake that are very near and dear to my heart, and Sugar Pine Point is one of them. That’s why I am so pleased to tell you that they are hosting a free locals day on Sunday, May 31st from 10am-3pm, which includes free parking and a free tour of the Hellman-Ehrman Mansion.

If you’ve never done this wonderful tour, it’s a must do for any Tahoe/Truckee local and visitor alike. You will be treated to not only a viewing of the mansions well appointed rooms as they would have been during their heyday, but your very knowledgeable guides will take you on a heady historical journey of the various homes occupants and how they lived. (Think an ‘American Mountain Style’ version of Downton Abbey’…)

After you’re done with the tour, sit a spell on the the expansive and shady porch, or peruse the out buildings, including General Phipps Cabin, one of the oldest structures still existing at Lake Tahoe. Wander down to the pier and its inviting white sand beach and crystal aqua waters.

The grounds of the estate is fairly large and includes a nature trail that can take you all the way to the highway and on to General Creek Campground. For more information, visit: www.parks.ca.gov
