As explained in Chapter XVIII, Tallac House was built by E.J. (Lucky) Baldwin.  For many years it was the principal hotel on the Lake, but what was a fine and superior hotel 25 years ago did not satisfy the demands of modern patrons.  Hence some years ago Mr. Baldwin planned to erect a new hotel near the site of the old one.  Unfortunately the work was not much more than begun when he died and nothing has been done to it since.

The hotel is now under the management of a San Francisco firm.

Built, as its name implies, in a pine grove of trees, this is one of the older resorts of the Lake.  It is unique in that it keeps open throughout the year.  Like the rest of the resorts of its class it has hotel and dining-room with cottages and tents.  Under its new management a new casino has been built, and every room and cottage, etc., equipped with electric lights.  Especial attention is given to camping-, fishing-, and hunting-parties.  It is on the State Highway between Placerville and Carson City, Nevada, and therefore makes all provision for automobilists.

For circular address Lawrence & Comstock, Pine Forest Inn, Tallac P.O., Calif.

This old-established and popular hot-springs resort is on the north end of the Lake, beautifully situated on State-Line Point between Crystal and Agate Bays.  The hot springs and mineral swimming-pool here have a tested quality which thousands of guests can testify to, and they are annually patronized by a large number.  The resort and springs are under the management of the owner.
