Join us for our FREE family-friendly Heritage Days!
Explore what life would have been like visiting Lake Tahoe in the 1920s at our summer estates. Take a self-guided tour, play historic games like croquet, sack races, tug-o-war, educational kids activities throughout the site, relax by the shore, spend the day!

Drop-in fun, ‘Nanny-guided’ creative activities for young children and families throughout the day at the Artist’s Cabin – Wednesdays and Saturdays at 11am, 1pm and 2pm. Most crafts and activities take approximately 30 minutes to complete. Some supplies and materials are available, others may require a scavenger hunt along the shoreline or forest!

Visit the Museum and Gift Store; look in the outbuildings that staff lived in laundry, nanny, gardener and more! Have a family picnic on the beach, read a book on the porch of the Indian Cabin, bring your morning coffee with you and enjoy sitting on one of the many benches available along the shoreline. Take a walk on the promenade (we’ll show you the way)  where the Tallac Casino and Resort once attracted wealthy San Francisco area families to the area, interpretive signage and foundations depict a bygone era that Lake Tahoe once represented!

Estates Walk @ Tallac Historic Site

This docent-guided walk  allows visitors to see more deeply into the lives of the elite San Francisco families that made these luxurious homes their summer retreat.

Discover how the families used the Estates and connected with Lake Tahoe almost a 100 years ago. Docents lead a walk through the historic site and enter buildings on the site that are not open to the public; which may include the Boathouse, Indian Cabin, various guest cabins and Anita Baldwin Cabin.

This 90-minute walk consists of some uneven terrain and paved trails. The terrain is  stroller and wheelchair accessible, buildings are not. Water, sun protection, and walking shoes are recommended. Dogs and children (12 and under are free) and welcome under parental supervision.
