Local Lifestyle

The spirit of Homewood is woven through its alpine slopes and lakeside docks. At the heart of this lifestyle is the renowned Homewood Ski Area, offering unparalleled views and skiing experiences for enthusiasts of all skill levels. Alongside this, Obexers Market & Marina is the neighborhood's cornerstone, catering to daily necessities and exclusive marina services for residents. Living in Homewood means embracing a life of understated old money luxury, outdoor adventure, and breathtaking beauty every day.
Purchasing a property in Homewood means gaining access to all-inclusive amenities. Homes here typically have access to private beaches, piers, or other lakefront luxuries. In McKinney Shores, an expansive buoy field and two piers are available for use, while in Chambers Landing, you’ll gain access to picturesque beaches, lakeside pool and a bar. 

Dining and Entertainment

At the heart of Homewood's culinary scene is the illustrious Chambers Landing Bar & Restaurant. The historic over the water bar promises frothy frozen rum drinks the color of the sunset and a crowd to enjoy some of the last sun of the day on the pier. Lively on weekends, this building has been a staple on the west shore since the Steamer Tahoe plied the Lake’s waters. The restaurant is an upscale sanctuary of gourmet delights, welcoming sandy or bedecked guests with exquisite lake views and impeccable service. From the freshest seafood to delectable burgers, every dish promises a delicious bite 
Swiss Lakewood, a cherished part of the West Shore Lake Tahoe community since 1920, boasts a rich history of Swiss culinary heritage. In 2009, Rick Brown, a local with deep family ties to the area, took the reins, adding contemporary American dishes while preserving classics like wienerschnitzel and veal. The addition of the Vodka Garden in 2021 has expanded the outdoor dining experience, ensuring that Swiss Lakewood continues to be a beloved and enduring culinary destination on the West Shore.
Equally enticing is the renowned Obexers Market & Marina. Beyond its premium grocery offerings, the marina simplifies lakeside adventures, be it a serene boat ride or an exciting day of water sports. It's not just a market — it's a lifestyle.  Those in the know meet up in the summer for coffee, connecting and arranging for the day’s adventures. 
Rounding off the trio is Homewood Mountain Resort, the family friendly resort for winter sports enthusiasts. With terrain that caters to both novices and seasoned skiers, it promises panoramic views and adrenaline-filled adventures with every descent.

Things to Do

For those who find solace in nature, a hike up Eagle Rock is a must. This relatively short journey rewards with a breathtaking panoramic view of Lake Tahoe, making it a favorite among residents and visitors alike. Another hidden treasure awaits off Grand Ave in Tahoe Pines — the enchanting Gnome Village. Ever evolving, look for gnomes nestled amidst towering Aspens, or spy a sheepherder’s carving on older growth trees.  This whimsical forest escape captivates the imagination and endears our youngest trekkers. 
Annually, the Concours D'Elegance wooden boat show at the Obexer's Market and Marina becomes the focal point of the community. This celebration of craftsmanship and heritage attracts enthusiasts from near and far. Take in the mahogany magic and glistening chrome of antique wooden boats that effortlessly ply the water.  And, of course, winters in Homewood are synonymous with skiing at Homewood, an experience that resonates with thrill and beauty.
