Vikingholm was built as the summer home of Lora Knight. Built in 1928-1929, is resembles a Scandinavian fortress, all forbidding stone and turret roofs. Stone and wood to construct it came from nearby. Tours can be taken from June through Labor Day ($1), and you can see the magnificent furnishings inside, including authentic and reproduction antiques and painted ceilings. When I asked local friends what visitors to the North Shore of Lake Tahoe must see, Vikingsholm is the most popular choice.
