An Extraordinary Location for Your Extraordinary Event

When looking for an extraordinary location to host your special event, look no further than the historic Thunderbird Lodge. The magical six-acre waterfront estate, unparalleled in beauty, is a rare Lake Tahoe treasure.

From the three-story waterfall that cascades past the granite boulders in front of the Old Lodge, to the 600 foot long tunnel with secret passageways, the Thunderbird Lodge is sure to intrigue even the most seasoned wedding and event guest. Meticulously assembled by dozens of craftsmen – Cornish miners, Italian ironworkers, Scandinavian carpenters and Native American stonemasons – the Lodge is truly a one-of-a-kind site that will make your event exceptionally memorable.

The Thunderbird Lodge is located just minutes away from all the amenities of Incline Village, Tahoe City, South Lake Tahoe and Reno. As you pass through the Lodge’s private, gated entrance, you’ll soon understand that the Thunderbird Lodge remains an oasis of secluded tranquility on an otherwise frenzied shoreline.
