Why We Like This Place

The North Tahoe Event Center, set in a desirable spot on Lake Tahoe’s less crowded North Shore, is a unique venue with nothing between it and the deep blue waters of the lake except a wide stretch of pristine beach. This versatile facility offers a variety of appealing spaces, and can accommodate both large and small events with ease.

The Lakeview Suite, with its wall of floor-to-ceiling windows, affords a stunning backdrop for your wedding: the serene, azure lake and surrounding peaks dusted with snow. And because the room opens onto the expansive Lakeview Terrace, during those glorious months from late spring to early fall you can host your ceremony or cocktail hour outside and then move back inside for the reception, creating a wonderful indoor/outdoor flow. As evening falls, the terrace is also a premium spot to savor a romantic sunset or watch the moon rise over the eastern Sierras, casting a golden shimmer upon the lake.

Larger private events and corporate functions are held in the 4,800-square-foot Timberline Room. Although it’s perfect for an elaborate gala of up to 300 guests, it can be sectioned for more intimate gatherings. There are several additional spaces that work well for childcare, a buffet setup or a staging area. Some of the Event Center’s other features include a large mirrored bridal dressing room, professional in-house catering, and a spacious commercial kitchen if you bring in your own caterer.

Both you and your guests will love the chance to experience Tahoe’s year-round recreation—skiing, mountain biking, golf, kayaking, paddle boarding and hiking. There are also less strenuous but equally satisfying activities like fine dining, shopping, and visiting art galleries—especially along the newly renovated and pedestrian-friendly beachfront commercial center in Kings Beach.

With its prime location, flexibility, affordability and glorious view, the North Tahoe Event Center has developed quite a following among those who wish to celebrate in one of the country’s most popular destinations.
