Our condominium is located within Kingswood Village in Kings Beach and is just five miles southeast of Northstar Ski Resort. It's just over half a mile from the Lake Tahoe beach as well as a 24 hour Safeway in Kings Beach. It is centrally located to 12 ski resorts in the Tahoe area and just 10 minutes from the North Shore casinos.
Kingswood Village offers a large pool and wading pool built in 2001 as well as three tennis courts, a small exercise room, and a sauna. Kingswood Village is one of the best-kept complexes in the Tahoe area and has numerous tall pines and cedar trees that remind you that you are in alpine country.
It was fabulous. I skied in thigh to waist high powder for 3 days. My quads are still complaining. I did ski yesterday and literally lost sight of the fall line from all the powder. The groomers skied like they were topped with baby powder. Needless to say it was extraordinary.
The condo was great once again. We’ve developed a tradition of having fondue on the last night and it was perfect. The services there are great as well. We had deep snow two mornings and each day the plow ran early. I appreciated that as I was out early to be on first chair of the day (yes, love those first tracks).
I-80 was closed all day Thursday and didn’t open until noon yesterday. What could I do but ski that morning? We had to leave in single line convoys but, it only took an extra hour overall. Not bad as I have spent an extra three or four hours in similar conditions.
Thank you again. It was perfect. Okay, maybe Jane and the girls being there would be better. Then again, no one else here really ~gets~ powder.
Hello, I'm Gail Barrington and I've lived in Rocklin, CA located in the Sacramento Valley for nearly 30 years. My husband, Joe, a transplant from the San Francisco Bay Area, has enjoyed more than 20 years in Rocklin and has been employed by Hewlett Packard since 1981. Our son, Michael, is 20 and our daughter, Nikki, is 18,and both are currently in college.Both are looking forward to their first trip to the condo without mom and dad…imagine! We've all enjoyed spending time at our home away from home in the beautiful Lake Tahoe Basin.
In 1991, when our daughter was just 6 months old and our son was 2, we purchased a pop-up tent camper. We enjoyed 13 years of camping with our kids and their buddies on the California coast near Santa Cruz and at Sugar Pine Point, Lake Tahoe. After years of searching for just the right Lake Tahoe property, we purchased our condo in Kingswood Village, Kings Beach CA. We love the beautiful and well kept tree covered property as well as it’s many amenities and accessible location.
Kingswood Village is less than an hour from Reno and the Reno-Tahoe International Airport. Our condo is less than 10 minutes from NorthStar and in close proximity to several other winter resorts as well as North Tahoe casinos and their showroom entertainment. Our condo is less than a mile from the beach, a boat launch, and numerous restaurants, as well as groceries at the 24 hour Super Safeway. Whether summer or winter, the Lake Tahoe basin is absolutely gorgeous. So, if you’re in need of some quiet rest and relaxation including reading by the fire with a cup of tea or glass of wine or ready to enjoy the slopes or the beach, head for our home-away-from-home, the BARRINGTON FAMILY CONDO in Kingswood Village!
