CRYSTAL BAY, Nev. — The historic Cal Neva Resort on Lake Tahoe’s North Shore has been acquired by a real estate investment, development and management firm, officials announced Thursday afternoon.
McWhinney acquired the resort that was built in 1926 and was later redeveloped by Frank Sinatra in 1960.
During its glitzy heyday, the Cal Neva played host to hundreds of major U.S. figures including John F. Kennedy and Marilyn Monroe. The property has been in need of renovation for the past several decades and closed for business altogether in 2013.
