The homes that are overlooking the meadows also have beautiful mountain views.

The average price for homes in this area is around $450,000. As the number of second home buyers increased, so did the popularity of this small community.
Historically speaking, this is one oldest neighborhoods found in the South Shore as is evident by the higher than average number of quaint “Ol’ Tahoe” cabins, chalets and cottages with some dating back as far as the early 1900’s. One small pocket within Al Tahoe was at one time, a collection of small forest service recreation cabins. In an effort to obtain fee simple ownership, the property owners gathered together to purchase a chunk of land elsewhere and successfully made a trade with the government in exchange for the land on which their homes stood. The owners of these cabins formed a small HOA with one of the main purposes being to maintain the classic old charm of days gone by. The area was a popular summer camp for the Washoan Indians at one time showing that Al Tahoe’s popularity is timeless.
The diversity found throughout Al Tahoe includes brand new architecture and construction, modest ranchers, multi-family dwellings and small apartment buildings. The conveniences of living in this neighborhood are plenty. Not only can a family stroll over to the Regan Beach Park as well as the El Dorado Beach Recreation area and boat ramp, dining, shopping and public transportation including ski shuttles, are all within walking distance. The Regan Beach park hosts a playground, snack shack and beach volleyball, not to mention the miles of beachside hiking or cross country skiing. A couple of miles down the main road is the newly developed Heavenly Village and gondola leading to the Heavenly Valley Ski Resort. Just a tad further is the casino strip where year round concerts, shows and entertainment are always available.
