Sugar Pine Point State Park and Hellman-Ehrman Mansion [CA]

Ed Z'berg-Sugar Pine Point State Park contains nearly two miles of lake frontage, with dense forests of pine, fir, aspen, and juniper. Another attraction is the Hellman-Ehrman Mansion (also known as Pine Lodge), a summer home built in 1903 in a grove of pine and cedar. From the turn of the century until 1965, the lands of what is now Ed Z'berg-Sugar Pine Point State Park were owned by financier Isaias W. Hellman, and later by his daughter Florence Hellman. The mansion provides a view into the lifestyles of the wealthy on Lake Tahoe.

The mansion offers tours.
