Valentine's Day Dinner at The Thunderbird Lodge hosted by Tahoe Mountain Club
no images were foundAptly titled as Lake Tahoe’s Castle-In-The-Sky, the majestic Thunderbird Lodge Historic Site is the centerpiece of Lake Tahoe itself. Built in 1936 by George Whittell Jr., the Thunderbird Lodge is now one of the last, remaining examples of a great residential estate from the era of prominent 1930's home building on Lake Tahoe. Intended to enliven the architectural approach of creating a home to be in harmony with its natural setting, the Thunderbird Lodge represents a high level of expertise in architecture, construction, tile work, stone masonry, and both ornamental iron and woodwork. The Lodge's elaborate and ornate ironwork alone is said to be worth upwards of $2.5M. Designed by Frederic J. DeLongchamps, considered Nevada’s most prominent architect of his time, the natural breathtaking beauty of Lake Tahoe coupled with fine attention to detail and architectural design has placed the Thunderbird Lodge on the National Register of Historic Places. Exclusive events rarely take place at The Thunderbird Lodge, such as the elegant Valentine’s Day Dinner. We were priveledged and honored to dine in the historic dining room, a room that is solely reserved for private parties of diplomats and world leaders. Access to this very special event was reserved exclusively for members of the Tahoe Mountain Club, which is a great local association “committed to creating the foundation for friendship, opportunities to learn, and appreciation for the natural environment of Sierra.” Membership in the Tahoe Mountain Club grants premier access at two local championship golf courses, private mid-mountain dining at Schaffer’s Camp, a Members Lounge in The Village at Northstar known as the Alpine Club, and The Pavilion at Old Greenwood’s Swim and Tennis Facility. Other benefits are seasonal, such as preferred tee times while golfing and the opportunity to enjoy Valentine's Day at The Thunderbird Lodge.
