About Lake Tahoe's West Shore

There are many beautiful neighborhoods surrounding Lake Tahoe, but there is a reason we say “the West Shore is the Best Shore.” Homeowners awaken to the most beautiful sunrises. As the sun peaks over the eastern mountains, it glimmers across the lake.

Many real estate buyers seek the charming Old Tahoe style homes, perfect for family gatherings. There are also many prestigious lakefront properties on Lake Tahoe’s West Shore.

From Tahoe City to Emerald Bay, the West Shore of Lake Tahoe offers the area’s most sought after real estate.  Quaint country stores, charming restaurants and old-timey marinas dot the shoreline.

As you travel further up the West Shore, the majestic homes offer dazzling views of Emerald Bay.

We are starting the winter season with a huge reduction in inventory, but there are still many great homes for sale on the West Shore. Take a tour through the many neighborhoods and view a few of my favorite West Shore homes for sale.
