Victorian-era Tahoe House Hotel for sale

VIRGINIA CITY(AP) – An elegant property with an intriguing past, Virginia City s lovingly restored Tahoe House Hotel is now being sold by Chase International for $2,890,000.

The Tahoe House Hotel is located in the heart of town. Built in 1859, the upscale hotel was frequented by the young Samuel Clemens (a.k.a. Mark Twain).

Recently, the hotel underwent an eight-year renovation under its present owner, Daan Eggenberger. Deferring to the 21st century guests desire for modern conveniences and spacious lodging, Eggenberger took special care in the property s interior.

Without losing an ounce of Victorian charm, he transformed the hotel s original 24 closet-size guest rooms into 14 spacious guest rooms, each with its own bathroom. Also in the redesign was a private Carriage House suite, which is perfect for honeymooners or those who desire extra privacy. Five of the rooms have individual balconies and views of Main Street and the 100-mile view to the east.

Guests also enjoy the high ceilings and authentic period furniture that are featured throughout the hotel. Central to the experience is the Tahoe House Hotel s Great Room with its delightful old Western bar, vintage piano and charming antique stove.

Chase International listing agent Stephen Musser said the hotel is the perfect launch pad for Virginia City visitors, who love the area s history and outdoor recreation opportunities. The business which is sold furnished has great income potential.
