Need to do a bit of work while you are visiting Lake Tahoe? The Tahoe Mill Collective at the entrance to Alpine Meadows has just expanded to a second location in the center of Tahoe City. The new space has six private offices and desks for rent in an open concept space. There is also a conference room, kitchen, lake views, a gym next door and the famous Pete and Peters bar just across the parking lot. In addition,  Commons Beach and the Lakeside bike trail are just across the highway, Alpenglow Sports is next door, The Cobblestone Center is a block away, and the Tahoe City Golf Course sits right behind the building. I know, sorry, this might be way too many distractions to get your work done, or maybe it is an incentive to get to it so you can go out and play. 

“We know you come to Tahoe to get away and unplug—spending time with friends and family outside. But sometimes, you’ve still got to crank out a few emails, make a conference call, or check in on work from afar, and it can be hard to do that in a vacation home filled with others and possibly limited cell service and wifi,” said Megan Michelson, co-founder manager of Tahoe Mill
Collective.  

“We created the Tahoe Mill Collective, a coworking space in North Lake Tahoe, for just that reason. We offer desk and office space for remote workers, freelancers, start-ups and anyone who needs a quiet place to get work done while they’re in Tahoe. Whether you’re a full-time local or a visitor just here for a couple of days, we’ve got permanent spots and drop-in desks available for rent for the day or week (drop in rates start at $30/day, $75/week, or $150-$250 for the month), as well as conference rooms for small groups.”

On a personal note, I’ve been familiar with this property since I was a wee tike. It once housed Kehoe’s Market, the only grocery store in town when I lived up the street where The Cobblestone is now. When I was seven I would obtain my candy money by gathering up recyclable bottles and returning them to Kehoe’s.
