Explore the Hellman-Ehrman Mansion – a Lake Tahoe Lakefront Legacy
Step back in time and enjoy a tour of the historic grounds and The Mansion – also known as Pine Lodge – located in the Day Use side of Sugar Pine Point State Park. Constructed in 1903, the property is one of the finest examples of a by-gone era of summer retreats found along the shores of Lake Tahoe. The house was built by San Francisco financier I.W. Hellman for his beloved family to enjoy the clean air and refreshing waters of Lake Tahoe. The property, containing the estate and 2,000 acres, was sold to the State of California in 1965. This National and State landmark is now open to the public for tours during the summer months by the Sierra State Parks Foundation. All proceeds from the tours benefit the restoration and interpretation of this very unique piece of California heritage.
