Tahoe's historic West Shore is home to undeniably the best boating on the lake, as demonstrated by the multiple marinas along the shoreline, not the least of which is Obexer's Marina in Homewood, just 5 minutes from the property. Obexer's has served the Tahoe boating world since the early 1900s when Jacob 'Jake' Obexer started his marine business on the lake. Today the West Shore also serves the winter enthusiasts with its Homewood Mountain Resort, a true family oriented ski area with incredible panoramic views of Lake Tahoe from its snow covered slopes. Tahoe City is just a 10 minute drive up the West Shore and is chockablock with shopping and dining for locals and visitors alike. Tahoma, Homewood and Tahoe's West Shore are perhaps the best part of all Lake Tahoe.
