Fannette island at Emerald Bay, Lake Tahoe
Description: Fannette Island is the only island in Lake Tahoe, California/Nevada, United States. It lies within Emerald Bay. Over a long period of time, it was called many different names, including Coquette, Fanette, Baranoff, Dead Man's, Hermit's, and Emerald Isle. The island contains what is left of "Tea House", a building constructed by the owner of Vikingsholm, Mrs. Lora Josephine Knight. Fannette Island, along with Vikingsholm and Emerald Bay, is a part of Emerald Bay State Park. It is accessible by boat, canoe, or kayak. Swimming to the island is not allowed, as there is a sign posted stating extremely cold waters, no lifeguard on duty, and no swimming to the island. There is also the hazard of multiple boats in the area that can make swimming to the island dangerous....Wikipedia
