Host your meeting at Valhalla to reconnect and recharge

The Heller Estate has been a gathering place on Lake Tahoe’s South Shore for almost 100 years. Throughout the century, guests enjoyed the serenity and recreation opportunities the estate has to offer. 

Today, we open the Grand Hall doors for all kinds of gatherings including retreats, meetings and fundraisers.

The estate offers so many options for a diverse day of team building or an unforgettable event. The Boathouse Theatre has auditorium style seating for 170 and is a perfect location for presentations, panel discussions or performances. 

The Grand Lawn offers the opportunity for groups to spread out in the shade. With more than an acre of open space, there’s plenty of room for team building activities, breakout sessions or lunch. Larger events can seat up to 400 like the Lake Tahoe Summit pictured above. 

Want to breakup the day with an afternoon adventure? Rent , kayaks, paddle boards or boats from neighboring Camp Richardson or tie off to the Valhalla Boathouse Pier. At the end of the day, the Grand Hall is a perfect location for fundraisers and catered dinners. Dress up and enjoy a party in true 1920s style. Get creative with the Grand Hall’s many spaces and create an event your guests will talk about for years.
