Emerald Bay Dory

Lake Tahoe’s Emerald Bay was once the site of the Emerald Bay Resort. I believe the resort was in operation from the late 1800’s until around 1920, but I’m not sure about the exact dates.

When the resort was dismantled, a lot stuff was shoved into the bay, including a boat dock and diving platform and about half a dozen (7 if I remember right) small rowing dories that remain on the bottom.

Rumor has it that a Model A Ford is down there too. In the coming months, I will try to prove that.

  1. I found a source that indicates the Emerald Bay Resort was in operation until the 1950’s. Historically, it is an interesting site. If anyone knows anyone who had ever spent time there, I’d love to hear from you.
