This awesome Scandinavian mansion was built by the rich Lora Knight, who decided to build this 30 plus room house. She traveled to Scandinavia to get ideas then had her mansion built on the shores of south lake Tahoe. You can see the mansion from the boat tour or you can hike down to it. The hike down is easy, the hike back out is a bit harder. The mansion was closed when we went, but it was cool just to see from the outside. We were able to enter to court yard and part of the porch. Part of the building is used for ranger housing, so don’t go peakin’ in the windows!
