About Lyle & Mary

Our family purchased this townhouse as our weekend and summer vacation getaway. Our children grew up enjoying all Tahoe has to offer. Skiing, boarding, boating, beaches, tennis, pool, hiking, biking... it's all at your doorstep. we chose this complex because it was small (about 50 townhomes) and most places are just used by the owners. It is very quiet and never crowded. We love just sitting on the deck and relaxing, surrounded by forest and beautiful views. Plenty to do right in the complex. Relax by the pool or on the private beach. Launch your boat nearby (Coast Guard Station launch) and cruise the lake. Don't have a boat? Rent one. Go Para Sailing or rafting on the Truckee River. Miles of bike paths to explore along the lake or river. A paradise for Mountain Bike lovers. Or just sit back and enjoy the game on TV with a cold drink. If you are looking for a quiet get away, this is perfect. If you want action, Casinos and night life is a short drive to Reno or Incline Village.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Enjoyed our Time at North Shore very much. Have already recommended this property and the concept to others. Very, very quiet, great chance to enjoy the outdoors while BBQing on the deck.

Great Tahoe getaway

  • 5 of 5

The condo was clean, surprisingly spacious, and had everything we needed for a perfect stay in Tahoe. Check in was easy and the landlords were very nice and helpful if we needed anything. The unit is quiet and the location was great-perfectly close to Squad valley and even closer to downtown restaurants and stores.

East Access to Squaw and Northstar

  • 5 of 5

Great for a ski trip with easy access to Tahoe City for dinner, groceries and ski shops. It's an easy drive to Squaw/Alpine in one direction and another towards Northstar. We wished there was a hot tub to soak our bodies after the slopes but the fireplace and TV in their living room with comfy couches did the trick. The balconies offer great views of the lake through the trees. Mary and Lyle were pretty accessible via text and email but everything was self-explanatory so we didn't need them much for anything. The 10am check-out worked out for us as we were headed for Squaw early in the morning but it might be rather early for those who are not there to ski.

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking time to post your review. Glad you enjoyed Tahoe and our place. Regarding check out time - we try to accommodate requests for late checkouts and often can accommodate such requests. During the holiday time periods we are typically booked solid with guests arriving the same day. Insuring the cleaning crew can get the place ready for the next guest is the challenge. Again, thanks!

Tahoe Christmas

  • 5 of 5

Plenty of bedding and a well-stocked kitchen--all sizes and kinds of pots and pans, lots of tableware. Space heaters for the downstairs bedrooms a nice accommodation. We never used the heaters in the bedrooms, but heated the bath tub area for the baby's bath. Landlords very responsive to requests for information and even bought a pack-n-play for the Condo when they realized we had a baby. Lots of stairs but four of us were seniors (62 to 75) and had no problems. Skiing close by for our 30 - 40 year olds; beautiful view of the lake.
