Set at the bottom of Emerald Bay is the beautiful house of Vikingsholm, but this is not one vacation stop that you can just drive up to, you have to earn the trip here. I nice steep hike down to Vikingsholm is not for the weak at heart because the hike back up will get you if you are not in shape. Add the elevation and you can see you can run in to problems here. But the view is fantastic. The water is crystal clear, and the house is a fascinating study in architecture. Between the thatched roofs with grass growing on top to the circular build of the house, you will think you are viewing a house from 17th century england instead of Lake Tahoe. A view of Fannette Island, the only island in Lake Tahoe, is visible from this house.
