From small, cozy cabins built in the early 1900s to grand multi-million dollar luxury homes, Al Tahoe offers a wide range of housing options that cater to different tastes and budgets. Most of the homes in the area are built on 5,000 sq ft lots, but there are also larger lots available.
What sets Al Tahoe apart is its prime location. Nestled between the stunning Lake Tahoe, the Truckee Marsh Meadow, and Trout Creek on the south and west sides, this neighborhood is a nature lover's paradise. It's also one of the few neighborhoods in the area that offers a boat launch with free access to Regan Beach for all boaters.
But Al Tahoe isn't just about nature and scenery. The neighborhood is home to the newly renovated Lakeview Commons, an architectural masterpiece that has become a local gathering point. Live at Lakeview, a free live music event held every Thursday during the summer months, draws crowds from all over with its stunning amphitheater-style seating and picturesque lake backdrop. Lakeview Commons is also the venue for weekly stand-up paddle races and is equipped with BBQs and seating areas for a perfect picnic by the lake.
Adjacent to the boat launch area is the Al Tahoe business district, a bike and pedestrian-friendly area with dedicated bike lanes and paved sidewalks. The district is home to popular local eateries like Sprouts and Rude Brother's Coffee, where you can indulge in fresh and organic selections or homemade bagels with the best vanilla latte in town.
Just a short distance away is the newly developed Heavenly Village and gondola that leads to the Heavenly Valley Ski Resort. And for those who enjoy year-round entertainment, the casino strip is just a stone's throw away, offering concerts, shows, and other activities for every taste.
