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.

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.

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.
