To the surprise of few, Barron’s ranked Martis Camp as “Tahoe’s best place to own a second home.” Its central location between Lake Tahoe and downtown Truckee, and renowned exclusivity in the expansive Martis Valley have made this gated respite a sought-after location for living well. Those who know what this place offers, aren’t quick to share it. It’s as family-oriented as a Rockwell painting, and offers as many recreation opportunities as most small towns. Enjoy on-site dining, community events, concerts, and of course, one of northern California’s most challenging golf courses. Martis Camp has attracted a wide swath of Bay Area home equity and Silicon Valley investment. These are home lots to be desired and second-gen residences that define mountain inspiration. Home prices range from from $2.6 million. Lots start at $700K to over $3 million.
