The calm and peaceful water of Lake Tadros is the statement piece of the property and can be enjoyed lounging on The Dock, laying out on The Beach, or leisurely walking on the path around the lake. As you peer into the water you may even spot some fish happily swimming. Not only is the lake beautiful, it also serves as the primary water source for the property’s irrigation. Lake Tadros is sure to add elegance to any event and beauty to any photo.
The white sand at the edge of Lake Tadros with a beautiful view of The Dock makes an unexpected appearance in the desert and will certainly be a guest favorite. The Beach is a great place to set up a dreamy wedding ceremony, a cozy bonfire, or a perfect place to catch some rays.
The perfect view from The Dock captures Lake Tadros, The Beach, and the Vista Santa Rosa Mountains making it a wonderful space for photos. The Dock hovers over Lake Tadros on sturdy and stable posts allowing guests to be confident and sure-footed as they dine, dance, or lounge.
