Designated as a National Natural Landmark in 1969, Emerald Bay is the most prominent and the most beautiful feature along the Southwest Shore of Lake Tahoe.

Vikingsholm & Fannette Island
Built on the shoreline of Emerald Bay, Vikingsholm castle, a 38-room mansion, is considered one of the finest examples of Scandinavian architecture in the United States. Vikingsholm, situated among old-growth pines and cedars, was built as a summer home by Mrs. Lora Josephine Knight in 1929. The bay reminded her of the many fjords of her Scandinavian birthplace . Also part of the Vikingsholm property is Tahoe’s only island: Fannette Island. Ms. Knight built a stone structure on the top of the island that she used exclusively for tea parties.
Situated on the North East Shore of Tahoe, the stunning stone mansion, Thunderbird Lodge, is the architectural centerpiece to the expansive Thunderbird Estate. The Thunderbird Estate is rich in Lake Tahoe History. Built in 1936 by George Whittell Jr. who was born to one of San Francisco’s wealthiest families. Whittle never worked a day in his life. His massif financial assets allowed him to purchase the entire Nevada side of Lake where he built the Thunderbird Lodge.
