Vikingsholme, Emerald Bay

August 29, 2004

Vikingsholme, this crazy Scandinavian manor that someone built in 1929 as a summer home (!). It faces out onto Emerald Bay, which means it probably has some of the most gorgeous views from a house anywhere in California, especially at sunrise. It's now park of the California state park system, and open for tours (which we didn't take, preferring to head toward South Tahoe, more drinking water, and home).
