Previously the summer home of George Whittel, a San Francisco millionaire, The Thunderbird Lodge National Historic Site, built in 1936, now stands as a monument to the man and his life. The site is open to the public for guided tours. The house consists of two master bedrooms, a great room, servants bedrooms, the original kitchen and appliances, as well as scenic outdoor spaces. One of the tour's highlights is a trip through a 600’ underground tunnel that leads to Whittel's prized 55' yacht, Thunderbird.
