OUR AMAZING YACHT
Come and explore Thunderbird Lodge National Historic Site, Lake Tahoe's Castle-in-the-Sky. The historic Lake Tahoe estate and gardens are open for public guided tours on Tuesday through Saturday through October. Private group tours are available year-round.
 
If you're seeking a special, extraordinary location for your Lake Tahoe wedding, dinner for rehearsal, family gathering, business meeting or Lake Tahoe corporate retreat, look no further than the historic Thunderbird Lodge. We offer the ultimate Tahoe weddings and intimate views here.
 
Join us at the Thunderbird Lodge for one of our fabulous member events. These parties, including our incredible Winemakers' Dinner Series, are offered throughout the season and are one way we invite you to support the preservation of this remarkable estate.
 
The Thunderbird yacht might be the most unique wooden vessel ever crafted. Since it was built for George Whittell in 1939, celebrities and bon vivants have continued to cruise in this exclusive, rare Lake Tahoe yacht in art-deco elegance, with engines roaring as the shoreline disappears.
