The Tahoe House Hotel once hosted the best and brightest of Victorian society, including beloved American writer Mark Twain. Twain played no small part in popularizing the Nevada and Sierra Nevada as we know it today. Guests are encouraged to enjoy an evening beverage whilst partaking in some honky-tonk piano from house Pianist ‘Squeek’ or lucky patrons may see the man himself, Mark Twain (played by renowned impersonator MacAvoy Lane) wandering one of his favorite old haunts. Certainly a beautiful and timeless place of lodging fit for the king of American literature.
