Owning a home in Martis Camp Lake Tahoe

One of the best places to own a second home in Tahoe is Martis Camp, but don’t just take our word for it, Forbes and Barron’s magazine agree. Martis Camp real estate has helped redefine how families can experience the Lake Tahoe area, as it offers true four-season luxury living and amenities. With a mix of custom homes, estate lots, and smaller cabins, Martis Camp sets a high standard in Lake Tahoe luxury real estate, featuring distinctive mountain architecture amidst a stunning 2,000+ acre setting nestled in the High Sierras between Truckee and Lake Tahoe. 


This year has seen record growth in the Martis Camp real estate market. While there was a temporary hold on the market in the early months of the pandemic and shelter in place, Martis Camp came back in force to record year-end numbers. This year, there was over $400 million in transactional volume including over 60 homes and 55 homesites, the highest since the development opened in 2006. By comparison, 2019 saw only $220 million in transactional volume. Now more than ever, homebuyers are realizing the potential value to be found by escaping to a private, exclusive mountain community.


Where Martis Camp truly shines is the accessibility it provides to the surrounding natural areas, particularly in winter. This includes direct access to Northstar via a private lift- the Martis Camp Express, a new high-speed lift near the base of Lookout Mountain. But beyond the ski access, it’s hard to ignore all the overwhelming value from Club amenities at Martis Camp, we can’t even cover them all here:

  • The Camp Lodge offers casual and formal dining, a fitness center with accompanying day spa, an outdoor pool and hot tubs, as well as a golf shop.
  • If you’re looking to be entertained, the Family Barn features an outdoor amphitheater for concerts and events, two bowling lanes, an indoor theater, basketball court, swimming in the summer, and for old time’s sake- a 50’s style soda fountain! 
  • The Beach Shack on Lake Tahoe offers a full acre of pristine sand, sun and grass along the shore. Members enjoy perks like valet parking, paddleboard, kayak, and toy rentals, casual dining fare and beverages, chair and towel service, on-site showers, restrooms and a lounge area to relax. 
  • Martis Camp also offers over 20 miles of community trails for hiking and biking in the warmer months, and cross country skiing or snowshoeing when the snow arrives. Lost Library is tucked in along the trails, a hidden cabin offering hundreds of books for all ages to peruse.
