John Muir Said It Best …
“The Mountains are calling, and you must go.”
There comes a time in life when it’s time to enjoy life at its fullest; perhaps that time is now.
Right here in the Truckee Tahoe region we have seen a surge of interest from those who are investing in their livelihood and moving to the High Sierra. And with good reason.
It’s a place where the day starts with a paddle on the Lake or hike in the hills and stoplights are few and far between. A place where your neighbors become best friends and you and your kids grow up together … riding bikes, playing on the lakes and beaches for hours on end, hanging out at the local fishing hole, or star-gazing into the night.
All things combined we can’t think of a better place to live a balanced life than within in our small towns that thrive throughout the High Sierra. When you are ready to explore new options for you and your family’s future, our staff at Elder Group Tahoe Real Estate is here to help you plug into the life that you have earned and deserve.
Welcome to the Mountain Town Life
Living in the Truckee Tahoe region offers an unlimited opportunity to truly live that ‘full life’ that you read about every day – yet perhaps have yet to experience.
It’s where inspiration comes naturally from a morning stroll in a dew-laden meadow or hike out your backdoor. Where the traditional ‘coffee break’ is replaced by a paddle – all alone – on a close-by quiet crystal-clear lake. And where your afternoon schedule includes time to take your kids fishing and dinner is a picnic at a local park.
And that’s just the beginning.
Last September we posted a blog about why people are moving to the mountains. Within the article it talked about our healthier lifestyle, our slower pace of living, exceptional health care, and the higher quality of life all around.
Today, we want to continue to entice you to do the same.
Here’s just a few examples of how you and your family can unplug and plug-in to a more balanced life right here in our home town.
Take Time Off to Fish On …
Remember the long lazy days fishing with your Dad? Bring those memories back to life. From the edge of Donner Lake, to the local’s favorite rock outcroppings along the Truckee River, to the deep blue waters of Lake Tahoe, there are some of the best fishing (and catching!) opportunities in the West. Whether you go it alone or choose to enlist the services of our regional outfitters, there are unlimited options and lots of locals to help. Feel free to reach out to these business services to get you out on the lakes and streams that wrap in and around our small towns throughout Lake Tahoe and Truckee, too.
Take a Picnic to a Park
Some of the greatest perks of living in a small town are all the quaint community parks that are perfect for a good-old-fashion family picnic. Check out the websites below before you go to get all the directions and details that you need to recreate your own picnic memories of yesteryear right here.
Get Off the Beaten Path
Ever tried a day of mountaineering? From Lake Tahoe’s highest peaks to the famous Pacific Crest Trail, there are miles and miles of options to leave your busy life behind and find your own place of paradise to explore.
And thanks to those who love to do the same, there are some excellent resources to get you out and about all alone or take you on a guided tour into terrain you’ve yet to explore.
Take A Dive into the Depths of Tahoe

From the deep blue waters of Lake Tahoe to its craggy peaks and ridges, Lake Tahoe offers some of the most spectacular underwater adventures to be found above (and below) 6,000’. The history of the lake alone entices scuba enthusiasts from all over the world to take a dive into the depths of its cobalt-blue waters. Before you go, you might want to check out our local dive shops for their best-kept secret-spots for scuba adventures throughout the High Sierra.
When you’re ready to find a slower pace in paradise where you can unplug and plug-in to a more balanced life, we’re ready to help you find the perfect place to call “home sweet home” here in the High Sierra.
