Silicon Valley's elite might live in exclusive Bay-Area communities such as Atherton, Woodside and Palo Alto, but when they're looking to buy a second home, many turn to Martis Camp.
This is a private community located near the north shore of Lake Tahoe, which counts among its members heavy hitters from Apple, Google and Facebook as well as venture capitalists and start-up founders.
"We're really catering to the people that are changing the world, and we're helping change their lives," sales director Brian Hull said. "They're coming here, and really unplugging a bit. And I think, consequently, they're conjuring up interesting ideas while they're away from their everyday lives."
The 2,100-acre resort boasts an 18-hole golf course, 26 miles of trails for hiking, a private ski lift to nearby Northstar and of course access to Lake Tahoe itself.
