You can ask any local in town: “What neighborhood in Lake Tahoe has the nicest homes and the best views,” and the answer is normally “The Tahoe Keys.” The Tahoe Keys is a man-made development on the south shore of Lake Tahoe that was created in the late 1950’s and early 1960’s. The natural marsh was washed away, replaced with inlets of land with waterway canals and access to the lake. Today, it is a 740-acre community with 1,220 homes, 350 town-homes and 11 miles of backyard waterways and private boat docks.
