Vikingsholm, Emerald Bay

The Vikings never landed on Lake Tahoe, but you’ll feel certain they did once you visit this very authentic replica of a Viking Castle.  Open in the summer months only, this 38 room fortress was built in the 1920s by Mrs. Lora Josephine Knight on her property encompassing the head of Emerald Bay and Fannette Island.
She spared no expense in making this Medieval Viking fortress look and feel like the genuine article, from its four stone fireplaces, to its dragon beams and right up to its thatched roof. 

Something like 200 craftspeople and builders labored away using detailed reference materials, local stone and resources to create this fairytale dream home for Mrs. Knight.  It’s a delightful place to lose yourself in the past.
Vikingsholm Castle is located in Emerald Bay, which is on the west side of Lake Tahoe.
For more information, contact (530) 525-7277 or one of the neighborhood visitor bureaus.
