Lake Tahoe Sights

Hellman-Ehrman Mansion

  • House/Mansion/Villa

Updated 04/29/2014

Fodor's Review

The main attraction at Sugar Pine Point State Park is Ehrman Mansion, a 1903 stone-and-shingle summer home furnished in period style. In its day it was the height of modernity, with a refrigerator, an elevator, and an electric stove. Also in the park are a trapper's log cabin from the mid-19th century, a nature preserve with wildlife exhibits, a lighthouse, the start of the 10-mile biking trail to Tahoe City, and an extensive system of hiking and cross-country skiing trails.

If you're feeling less ambitious, you can relax on the sun-dappled lawn behind the mansion and gaze out at the lake.
