Zephyr Point Presbyterian Conference Center has been our Go To vacation place for years to be refreshed in this beautiful & comforting atmosphere "ZP" offers. When our kids were young, we shared several cabin's with another family at "The Point". We enjoyed daily fun at the beach & docks, short hikes on premise, breathing in fresh air & making many wonderful memories together. We met friendly folks each visit; some becoming life long friends. The kids fished for crawdads, & played with other kids. A gift & a coffee shop, church fellowship, campfires, games at night, delicious snacks offered & many camps, for youth & adult.If you didn't want to cook, sigh up ahead for meals in one of their two dining hall's. Staff has always been welcoming. This vacation spot, or choosing a Family Camp or one of the many programs ZP offers is so worth your time! Carolynn & Mandy Simonson Moran

We have been coming to Zephyr Point each summer for 44 years. We rent a cabin for a week or two in the summer. We have volunteered in the store on site as well as coming up for a weekend a couple of times a year to help with work projects.

The staff is friendly and accommodating. Lots of great memories and friendships have been made. The view can't be beat.

Staff is very welcoming and can provide programming or assist with your planning and any special needs.
Everything is very clean. Wonderful place to relax and be inspired. Beach area is well maintained.

Amazing place, beautiful views. I live and work at Zephyr Point and every time I walk around or glance at the lake I am in awe! Pictures do not do it justice.

Right on the east shore of Lake Tahoe, Zephyr Point is beyond beautiful. The facilities are great and the staff are awesome, treating everyone with a genuine kindness and service you just can't find anymore. Conference facilities, breakout meeting rooms, dining options, individual cabin rentals all year long - did I mention right on Lake Tahoe, the views are simply jaw dropping! This non-profit defines the word transparent and especially now with COVID can really use your support - come for a visit, volunteer or donate. I have done all three and am truly recommending as an experience you will not forget.

I have stayed in several different cabins and also attended conferences over the past twenty years. It is a special place with wonderful staff. What is better than sitting on the shore of Lake Tahoe? Rates are very low, too!

Our family has been involved with Zephyr Point since its birth nearly 100 years ago. We have attended both youth and adult conferences there and taken advantage of family cabins. The management and support staff have consistently understood and upheld the vision of the founders that Zephyr Point be a place for spiritual growth and community. Six generations of our family have benefited in untold ways from our association with Zephyr Point, and many of us include visits there annually as temporary residents. We come as individual families and gather as multiple families and generations. We trust that our strong relationship with Zephyr Point will continue for untold generations into the future.

Every time I am able to get to Zephyr Point Presbyterian Conference Center my whole being is refreshed. With the first steps on property to the last lingering steps before I go: the vista, the fresh air and the hospitality make my time there more play than work. The Crew at Zephyr welcome you and make sure you and your conference group have all you need to run and participate in amazing conferences. I always feel welcomed, refreshed and ready to return as soon as possible!

I have enjoyed many visits to Zephyr Point with groups from the church I served, individual family time and conferences offered at ZP. My visits began in the 80's and have been some of the best memory making moments through the years!
Winter-Spring-Summer or Fall, ZP is a place to slow down and find yourself again!

I also have served on the Board of Directors over the years.

As both a conference attendee and cabin renter, i am constantly impressed with the quality of guest service and value provided by Zephyr Point. Not only is Zephyr Point an incredibly beautiful part of God's creation, but the welcoming attitude of the staff, the rustic yet clean and sanitary facilities make it a perfect four-season location for any group. Zephyr Point has also taken special precautions during this unprecedented COVID-19 time to ensure the health and safety of its guests.

My parents were first involved at Zephyr Point as cabin owners in the 1930's Over the years, 4 generations have followed in their footsteps. At ZP, the core beliefs and values of the Christian faith are made relevant to current generations in a uniquely beautiful and compelling setting. For for this reason, the world is a better place in which to live.

Zephry Point is waiting for you to visit. This gorgeous site right on the lake is literally a breathe of fresh air during these difficult times. I would recommend checking out the cabins on their website and going there to be renewed and reinvigorated. By using the cabins, you can cook your own meals and be safe and healthy. The outdoors is ready for you and the hospitality never stops. Try it and enjoy this part of the beauty of the earth.

Zephyr Point Presbyterian Conference Center has been the setting for memorable conferences, retreats and meetings that I have attended over the course of the past four decades. In an amazingly beautiful setting on the shore of Lake Tahoe in the Sierra-Nevada mountain range, the views of stone and water are inspiring in every season. I have had the honor to meet and hear inspirational speakers: the beloved poet Ann Weems, the stimulating author Len Sweet, the contemplative John Philip Newell, the challenging N.T. Wright and the exciting musician Isaiah Jones. The hotel-style accommodations for church group retreats and denominational meetings are excellent and a variety of cabins are available for self-catering groups. Beauty, inspiration, education, spirit-filled days--ZPPCC has it all.

Zephyr point is a place where beauty and peace meet on earth. The lake is crystal clear, and the mountains are breathtaking. If you need a place to unwind, declutter your mind, and center yourself, look no further. If you want a place to have a great time with your family, then Zephyr point is also the right place to go. You won't be disappointed.
