When you slip past the festively decorated gatehouse of Martis Camp – home to the finest in Lake Tahoe luxury real estate offerings – you’re stepping into what feels like a snow globe of sorts, a place where the ideal of a home for the holidays is raised to an art form.
Before reaching that doorstep, you may pass the Family Barn, where Christmas lights provide a warm welcome. Inside, ornaments, wreaths and other holiday crafts are being created in the Art Loft. Hot chocolates are mastered and consumed and a Christmas tree glows brightly. A light coat of snow surrounding the red barn and a lineup of masterpieces from the snowman building contest are simply the cherries on top. Scenes like this line the route home and the evening’s cool blue profile of Lookout Mountain further enhances the mood and solidifies Martis Camp as the premier four-season Lake Tahoe community, explaining why this is the place Barron’s calls, “The best place to own a home in Tahoe.”
Snowcats are waking up for their evening prowl on the slopes above Martis Camp’s private ski lodge which provides immediate access to Northstar California – a place that likewise accentuates all those holiday card images we hold in our minds.
The Camp Lodge is trimmed to the nth degree and complements the scene with warm conversations, fine dining, and an occasional toast to the coming year. When it’s time to ring in the New Year, fireworks will fill the skies above Martis Camp, turning the white landscapes into a kaleidoscope of color.
Finally, there’s home itself, likely flocked in new snow and surrounded by an enchanting forest. There may be a menorah on the mantle or a Christmas tree in the corner. It might be alive with children or a quiet retreat from the workaday world. But for most who call Martis Camp home, it certainly is where – just beyond their windows – a Norman Rockwell world of good comes to life. The whole picture of a community dressed up for the holidays is yet another reason why Martis Camp – for people focused on opportunities in the North Lake Tahoe Luxury real estate market – is the first community to come to mind.
