A Brief History of the Soule Domain
In a place where businesses rise and fall with the uncertain tides of the tourism industry, the Soule Domain is a unique success story. And the man at the center of this story is no less unique.
Lifetime resident of Lake Tahoe, Charlie Soule has faced the odds to follow his dream of providing a distinctive fine dining experience in his hometown. After graduating from North Lake Tahoe High School, Charlie embarked upon his culinary journey washing dishes and making salads in Tahoe City and cut his teeth in various upscale eateries in the area. Charlie left Tahoe due to the brief distraction of attending college. He soon realized that Tahoe’s beaches and ski slopes were calling him home, and cooking was his ticket back.
Charlie worked hard in some of Tahoe’s finest eating establishments honing the skills he now employs on a nightly basis, but he didn’t feel he was getting anywhere. That changed in 1985, when opportunity knocked, or rather rang. The phone. Soule’s uncle, impressed by his exceptional work at orchestrating his Mom’s 50th birthday dinner party, had called to ask Charlie if he thought he was ready to take off on his own. Charlie graciously accepted the offer, and the Soule Domain (or simply “the Soule”) was born in the small log cabin behind the Tahoe Biltmore, where it still stands. “My uncle and aunt gave me the most wonderful opportunity in my life. And I’ve had fabulous help from the start.”
Soule had confidence that whatever he lacked in expertise and business savvy, he could compensate for with his fiery passion for excellent food, his driving ambition, and sheer force of will. Charlie threw everything he had into his dream—literally. Moving in above the restaurant, Charlie cooked breakfast, lunch, and dinner for two years, giving explicit form to his lifelong whatever it takes to do it and do it well work ethic.
