The Pope complex is the largest of the Estates, and the main house the most elaborate and least rustic of the three. It is a good example of the fact that construction practices at Tahoe during this period favored the use of lavish effects and often ignored structural soundness.

The Tevis and Pope families provided their guests total convenience. The house also had to be heavily maintained to required much upkeep. All the work was performed by a butler, maids, cooks, gardeners, and many other servants.

Staff spent grueling hours each week in the laundry, dairy, larder, barn, and garden, which you will find south and west of the courtyard.
