About Helena McLain

Our condo is home to many years of family fun and memories. This is where we come to connect with siblings and cousins, to ski, boat, play tennis and golf and relax!

Why Helena McLain chose Lake Tahoe North Shore

Tahoe City is the perfect location for a vacation. A 3 hour drive to the bay area, 40 minutes to Reno for gambling and air travel. Our condo is 1 scenic one mile walk into town and close to many ski areas.

What makes this townhome unique

Our condo is right next door to the Coast Guard station and the public boat launch. Our sandy beach is steps from the door and adirondack chairs beckon relaxing reading while sipping a cool drink.

Great Tahoe Rental for Groups

  • 5 of 5

I had a group of 8 for the weekend. The place was clean, comfortable, and stocked with everything we needed for a relaxing and fun time in Tahoe. The owners were super responsive to every inquiry and extremely pleasant to deal with. Would definitely stay again!

My 4 night stay with two other friends was very enjoyable. The condo is in a very central location near Tahoe City. It is convenient to the north side of the lake or the South Lake Tahoe area, both of which are beautiful areas. The condo is very nicely decorated and was very spacious with its three bedrooms and large living space.

very nice condo

  • 4 of 5

The condo is in a great location and a very functional set up. Comfortable beds and good pillows. We were there with 2 adult children and their partners. My only complaint was that the microwave doesn't really work. It took about 10 minutes to warm up a plate of food.

Lovely location, gorgeous and very comfortable place!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our three young kids and a couple of other families over Christmas. The house is just gorgeous! We loved the luxury cabin feel, with the high, beamed ceilings, beautiful walls and plush carpeting. I'd say it is lovelier than the photos show (although the pics are very nice!) We ended up hanging out in the house more than we had intended because it was hard to leave such a cozy, comfy space, especially the spacious living area. The entire house, especially the kitchen, was well-stocked.

The location couldn't be any better. There are lake views from the living area windows, and it was especially lovely waking up to the beautifully lit sky and lake in the morning and have the sunlight flood in the numerous windows. The shore/beach is a few steps from the front door. While the property complex is secluded, it is a few minutes from town, grocery and restaurants. Also about a 10-15 minute drive to Squaw Valley resort, so very convenient.

The owner was prompt to respond each time we had a question and very accommodating. We'd definitely recommend this property and hope we can stay again during summer this coming year.
