History will come to life as you explore the many pictures throughout the The BLUE AGAVE restaurant which was voted the "Best Mexican Restaurant in North Lake Tahoe by the Tahoe World newspaper residents. It is directly adjacent to the hotel and features friendly, comfortable dining with views of Lake Tahoe from their open-air dining areas. Even their prices are "tasty" with special-priced tacos, quesadillas, burritos, beer and margaritas during the "Happy Hour" from 4-6 PM on Sunday through Fridays. (see our Rates and Specials page) Kids of all ages will also enjoy the Game Room.
The historic TAHOE INN served Tahoe City as the unofficial town hall and was home to many service organizations. It was a convenient place to conduct business in the old hotel lobby or in the infamous "Blue Room", or a place to drown your sorrows among friends in "Pop's Corner Bar". It still is an ideal place to hold meetings or receptions with rooms to accommodate 30 to 50 participants.
The Tahoe Inn was built on the site of the old Tahoe House which was built in 1868 and owned by a famous gold seeker, Robert Watson. Mount Watson and Watson Lake, scenic areas in the Tahoe Basin, are named after him as a reward for his efforts protecting the beauty of the area. It was rebuilt and renamed the Tahoe Inn in 1876 and sold to the Bechdolt family in 1923. The original structure burned down in 1934 and was reopened in its present configuration two months later. The Inn has been the home of a speakeasy during Prohibition and the home of many famous and infamous guests, including gangster "Baby-Face Nelson"
When the movie "Rose Marie", featuring Nelson Eddy and Jeanette McDonald" was shot at Emerald Bay, "Pop" Bechdolt catered the food for the cast and brought home the movie props when the movie set was disassembled.
