Thunderbird Lodge Tours:

Tour the epic Thunderbird Lodge: Docent-guided tours reveal the mystery and legacy of the enigmatic George Whittell Jr., the tycoon who purchased and protected nearly 45,000 acres of Lake Tahoe’s east shore. You’ll discover the history of the Lighthouse Room, Old Lodge, the servant’s quarters with original kitchen, as well as the 600’ underground tunnel leading to the cavernous boathouse. You might glimpse the legendary wooden speedboat, Thunderbird, built for Whittell in 1939 and powered by twin Allison engines from vintage WWII fighter aircraft. Walk along the serpentine Dragon’s Tail path to the enchanting Card House with its famous poker game stories. All tours offer breathtaking views of Lake Tahoe, the nearby mountain ranges, elegant gardens, lagoons, waterfalls, and fountains. Discover the magic of Thunderbird Lodge—the history, the architecture, and the men and women of Lake Tahoe’s gilded age.
