A lakefront and lodge-like estate is available on Lakeshore Blvd, offered at $14,950,000. A $25,000,000 lakefront is available in Secret Harbor, on the east shore, but not far from Incline Village.
As interest rates slow the market, we are seeing inventory rising across Lake Tahoe. On the north and west shore of Lake Tahoe, there are only 35 lakefront homes available. A few coveted neighborhoods like Brockway Hot Springs and Fleur Du Lac have listings for the first time in a few years.
