The Al Tahoe Area

The Al Tahoe neighborhood is one of South Lake Tahoe’s oldest and most historic neighborhoods and it is also one of South Lake Tahoe’s most diverse neighborhoods.  Al Tahoe is now incorporated with the city of South Lake Tahoe.  It lies at an elevation of 6,253 feet above sea level.  The Al Tahoe community was named for the Al Tahoe Hotel, which was built in 1907 by Almerin R. Sprague.  When a post office was established in 1908, Mr. Sprague became the area’s first postmaster.  Mr. Almerin Sprague named the hotel after himself, and even long after the hotel was gone the name of the neighborhood stayed.  Houses in Al Tahoe range from small original cabins and chalets built in the early 1900’s to newer larger homes and multi-million dollar lake-front homes. In between, there are duplexes, triplexes, multi-family dwellings and small apartment buildings as well. Most of the homes in Al Tahoe are built on 5,000 square foot lots, but some homes are on double lots. Al Tahoe remains one of the more affordable neighborhoods in South Lake Tahoe with great access to both Lake Tahoe and bike trails.

The Annual Wagon Train comes through South Lake Tahoe every June.  They will stop along the way at Al Tahoe’s Lakeview Commons for a BBQ and Western entertainment. Lakeview Commons is also becoming the new hub of activity in town, with festivals, weekly community events and national sport competitions.

Why Live Here?

Al Tahoe is located in the heart of South Lake between Regan Beach and Highway 50. Most homes are within walking distance of Regan Beach and newly renovated Lakeview Commons (formerly known as El Dorado Beach). This City beach is home to weekly summer concerts, a food concession (not your typical snack shack food), SUP and kayak rentals and races and a great vibe with something for everyone to enjoy. Homes have easy access to the beach, the casino corridor, Heavenly Valley Ski Resort, restaurants and shopping.  Due to Al Tahoe’s convenient location, it is a great place to purchase either a vacation home or your primary residence.
