The Boathouse Theatre

The Valhalla Boathouse Theatre is a unique cultural resource in the Tahoe basin, indeed in all of northern California and northern Nevada. No other arts venue showcases Tahoe heritage and the stunning beauty of the lake like the Boathouse Theatre. Patrons sitting in the theatre are treated to a view of the lake like no other, through the floor to ceiling window behind the stage. The interior, preserved with exposed beams and wonderful natural acoustics, is both intimate and grand creating an experience unrivaled in performing arts venues.

The Valhalla Grand Hall

The name “Valhalla” was taken from the Norse Myths of the Viking’s Heavenly Place. Valhalla, the name of the great hall of the Viking after life, provided an apt description of the Heller residence, which features a vaulted central living area surrounded by a horseshoe balcony, all of massive timber, and a forty foot stone fireplace, sufficient in size to accommodate several dozen people.
