“It’s validation that this market is where people want to be,” said Jim Matoska, president of sales and marketing for Schaffer’s Mill. “You can’t just replace properties like Schaffer’s Mill or areas like Lake Tahoe, which are just so unique. HGTV recognized that and did their research. It certainly benefits the whole area. More people are becoming aware of what we already know — that Tahoe is a unique lifestyle.”

It is the 18th year of the cable network giveaway, which last year garnered more than 80 million entries for the Kiawah Island, S.C., giveaway home. Previous homes have been located across the county in Sonoma, Calif.; Jackson Hole, Wyo.; Camden, Maine; and three in Florida.

“I have been responsible for scouting the location for every HGTV dream home since the beginning,” said Jack Thomasson, HGTV house planner. “I really scour the country each year for the place that I feel is our next-best location.”

He has scouted the Lake Tahoe area several times but could never find the right location, until this spring when he heard about Schaffer’s Mill.

It is less than 20 miles from popular Lake Tahoe attractions and have several ski resorts less than 30 minutes away. USA Today named Lake Tahoe one of the best lakes in the United States in 2012.

Thomasson said he liked Schaffer’s Mill’s philosophy of responsible growth and connection it made to the best parts of the region such as the lake and ski resorts.
