Villa Harrah, Zephyr Cove, Nevada

The villa has been modernized and remodeled over the course of its history,

By Samantha Coles

Casino magnate Bill Harrah first developed this lakefront mansion in 1963, and it saw a number of famous faces visit: Frank Sinatra, Judy Garland and Sammy Davis Jr. These high-profile guests could fly in under the radar in Zephyr Cove, as the property has a secret tunnel for concealed arrivals.

The villa has been modernized and remodeled over the course of its history and is equipped with all the amenities you’d find in the world’s best hotels: a full spa with steam room, sauna, jetted bath, cold plunge and Himalayan salt cave, hair and nail salon, home theater, wine cellar, lakeside pool and a private beach and pier.

The property has eight bedrooms (all of which are en suite), and one bedroom is equipped with six bunk beds. There are over 20,000 sq ft of living space throughout the villa, and the views over Lake Tahoe and the Sierra Nevada mountain range beyond are breathtaking – and can be seen from almost every room. It’s no surprise that these stunning views have inspired the decor:

The home cinema has a mural that depicts the mountain range, there’s artwork from local artists adorning the bedrooms, and in one of the powder rooms you’ll find a custom sink that shows a topographical Lake Tahoe.

The Great Room pays homage to the days of entertaining the Rat Pack with a wet bar, 14-person dining table, billiards space and chic lounge with a circular fireplace.

Price: $25.75m
