This area to me has always held a unique feel. Some of the homes are very old, some renovated and some just kept up to retain the Old Tahoe feel. Access to the Lake is easy, as this subdivision is located on the lake side of Highway 28. The beachfront properties enjoy a quiet lake access with out alot  of people, it is kind of tucked away. There are a few churches in the area along with auto repairs, a restaurant, bakery and misc. businesses. Access to the boat ramp and bike bath are close by.
