Riva Grill On the Lake

Every year, more and more people from around the world, travel to Lake Tahoe for its idyllic views, glacially-created waters and pristine forests, its motivated and bustling townships, magnificent winter and summer sports, fine dining and entertainment. What a sight. What a splendid resort destination!

By word-of-mouth, or happenstance, Tahoe has been frequented since the mid-1800's when Captain John C. Fremont and Kit Carson were in the “neighborhood” searching for a new path to The Pacific. Settlers, now tourists and residents, have been coming to America's largest Alpine lake ever since.

And Tahoe has become a great on-the-water playground for Riva runabouts. Apart from other familiar wooden boat builders, like Gar Wood, Chris-Craft and Hackercraft, the Riva runabout - quite possibly - may best be characterized by the old saying “Old World Quality, New World Design”. People are willing to part with good money for the art of boatmanship and the recognition won by Riva.

Riva was founded in 1860 by Pietro Riva on the Oglio River in Northern Italy. The company grew quickly and soon moved to its present location at Sarnico, on the shore of Lago d'Iseo in the Lake District north of Milan. The company's direction and success became one of international envy. Riva runabouts won countless “races” during the firm's infancy at the turn of the Century, gaining it a reputation for fast and well built boats. After World War II, the mahogany runabout began an era of elite speed-boating that would last to-this-day while Riva became a world leader for elegance and perfection of finish. After 1950, Signor Carlo Riva and his protégé Gino Gervasoni could deliver two Honduran mahogany speedboats a month at their boatyard on the Lake. The intrigue of these boats quickly spread from their environs to the Italian Riviera, then to the French Riviera and Monaco. By the ‘60's, fleets of Riva's were docked side-by-side in the holiday ports of the Mediterranean. These “precious mahogany sculptures” became the rage...the water borne conveyances for the elite, with powerful V8 engines, leather upholstery, sunbathing space over the engine compartment and, in some cases, two berths under the foredeck. Indeed, as their Italian sports car counterparts, they were delivered to oil sheiks, European millionaires...and soon to worldwide connoisseurs, including admirers at Lake Tahoe.

The Red Hut Cafe

In 1959, the old Donut Shop building at Stateline was moved about 2½ miles down to its current location in South Lake Tahoe and the original Red Hut Waffle Shop was opened. You can still see the original letters on the east side of the building. The owners, Mac and Lorraine, and their two daughters, Candy and Cheryl Lee, ran the operation, with Mac as chief cook and bottle-washer. Mac has passed on, but Lorraine still lives in Gardnerville, Nevada. Mac would hide the next day's bank in an old pair of cowboy boots above the freezer. If you look hard today, you might see a pair of boots in one of the Red Huts to remind us of our history. The building has changed little since 1959. An electric heater was finally added. Before that, some mornings we would be sitting at the counter having a cup of coffee, still with all our heavy coats, hats, and gloves, watching our breath. The windows would steam up so much that we couldn't see the long lines of people outside waiting to be seated.
