Today, the restored estates attract tourists flocking here to cycle or walk the forested grounds. During the summer, the site offers guided walks, demonstrations, heritage programs, and all kinds of other activities. Check the website for what might be taking place when you visit.

Tallac Historic Site reviews
Even though the homes were closed, we toured the grounds by ourselves. Come and visit. There is a nice beach to swim and paddle board. more »
Kudos to the many volunteers & the Forrest Service. These beautiful acres & historic bldgs. are better than ever. Unlike so much else as you enter the south end of Lake Tahoe. Closed for the season... more »
Really nicely maintained and huge place to explore the history behind all those cute little houses. Amazed by the architecture and what each building was used for. If you have the time and willing to pay, join the tour to look at the inside of the main house because from the windows it's really hard to see the magnificence of the interior designs.
Kids had a blast. They offer some classes, my daughter did a cooking class for kids and loved it. Easy trails to walk around. Spots where you can get in the water.
