Martis Camp redefines the Tahoe experience

Fourth of July weekend is here and with it came the highly anticipated grand opening of the Camp Lodge at Martis Camp. At about 55,000 square feet, the Camp Lodge boasts multiple dining areas (all with phenomenal golf or mountain views) extremely generous men's and women's locker rooms and lounge areas, world class spa with outdoor massage cabanas, lap pool, pro shop with simulation room, and more. You would think that 55,000 square feet would feel gargantuan, but the design and layout of the Camp Lodge makes every area feel personal and comfortable.

The dining areas each have their own character, one looks out over the 18th fairway and green with breathtaking Pacific Crest views (see photo that we took above), another is situated at the point of the signature rock outcropping and is surrounded by views of Northstar, Carson Range, and golf views. Don't worry about there being enough space for everyone to enjoy cocktails at the end of the day-the Camp Lodge has expansive outdoor seating patios nestled around the Lodge and even some private dining "nooks" built into the rocks a short distance from the Lodge. All (of course) with seemingly unending views.

Just when you thought Martis Camp couldn't get any better, the pinnacle of the extensive unrivaled amenities at Martis Camp has arrived with the Camp Lodge. You would be crazy to not want to be a part of it!

The first thing I said when I walked into the Camp Lodge the other day was, "this place is going to sell a lot of real estate". Turns out I was right. Over 15 lots have been sold in the last 7 days. Martis Camp continues to defy any nay-sayers about the viability of real estate in this market slump. In fact, it appears that real estate business all over the N. Lake Tahoe area is picking up, I haven't spoken to a colleague yet who has a second to spare this weekend. They are booked with clients coming to look at real estate and take advantage of the deals that are out there. This can't last forever, right?

One of my clients who is entrenched in global VC business says that real estate is absolutely coming back. Hard to argue when that is exactly what we are seeing! The emerging IPOs can't hurt anything either.

I am drinking the Martis Camp Kool-Aid. I suggest that if you are looking for real estate in the area that we go see Martis Camp together, I promise you will love it and the Kool Aid tastes better there. The developer and resale opportunities are fantastic and there are ownership options for different budgets.
