The Cobweb Palace is located in a house from the 1800s — Photo courtesy of Cobweb PalaceThe tiny town of Genoa (just below Stateline over Kingsbury Grade) has become a great little escape from the crowds of South Lake Tahoe. This historic town nestled at the foothills of the Sierras has a nice selection of restaurants, bars and some great boutiques. One of these boutiques is the Cobweb Palace. This cute store is located next to the Genoa Trading Company and is run by the same owners who moved the entire historic building across the street.

Lis, the owner, makes recycled jewelry pieces and sells them in the store and online. She also designs and sells antiques, Victorian-style clothes, parasols, lace items and other vintage clothes. If you are into period events, Victorian costumes, Western re-creation or Steampunk, this is your store. Her items are unique with a twist of fun thrown in. The items are well-priced for handmade pieces, and Lis and her husband, Ron, are always on the lookout for new items to add to the their two shops.

After you've been shopping at the Cobweb Palace, head over to the Genoa Bar for some real cobwebs and a drink. The "oldest thirst parlor in Nevada" claims they have the original cobwebs from the 1800s and it sure looks like it. This lively, locals bar has a great outdoor deck and friendly bartenders. The drinks are basic, but you are just biding your time before heading over to La Ferme for dinner.
