Ritz-Carlton Lake Tahoe

Vacation Home

Mountain Livin’… at the Ritz

Time to upgrade that log cabin. If you have an extra $1.25 to $4.5 million lying around, you could own one of 23 luxury penthouse condos recently opened as The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Lake Tahoe. The two-, three-, and four-bedroom residences come with an all-season pass, ski valet and concierge services, private entrance, and priority access to the hotel’s spa and restaurants. Three of the penthouses are custom homes designed by Jay Jeffers, in what he calls “California Mountain” style. Own 3,000 square feet at 7,000 square feet, at a ski-in, ski-out residence in a Forbes Four-Star and AAA Five-Diamond resort? Where do we sign?

Travel… in Your Imagination

Following a two-month painting trip in the Mediterranean, local artist and native San Diegan Grant Pecoff will show his series of plein-air and studio paintings called Greece & Croatia: Mediterranean Summer at his Little Italy gallery. Receiving the signature Pecoff treatment were Greece’s blue-domed churches, valleys of olive trees, and views from monasteries and mountaintops. He also painted from the vantage point of Croatia’s medieval fortresses and while sailing through 400 islands. “When you open your heart to the environment and people around you, everything seems so much more vibrant and alive,” says Pecoff. Indeed. Artist’s reception is April 13; oil paintings on display through April. Pecoff Gallery, 1825 India Street, pecoff.com
