Lake Tahoe North Shore Condo Rental Photos and Description

This 1,500 sq ft condo has everything you need and has been lovingly decorated to be your home away from home in the mountains.

There is plenty of room for the whole family, and the property includes 1 King bed, 1 Queen bed and a bunk bed - as well as a day bed and a fold out roll-away bed for extra guests. In the living room there is an oversized sectional sofa and the dining room has seating for 8-10 people.

Family meals are a breeze, thanks to the well-equipped kitchen. And there is also a family-size BBQ on your large private tree top balcony. But, if you are looking for a hassle-free meal, check out the kid-friendly restaurant at the Northwoods Clubhouse next door. Located only 4 properties away, it has an adjacent interactive playroom and free family movie nights every Friday. Alternatively, consider visiting one of the many fabulous restaurants in old and new town Truckee.

During the winter, the open space behind the property offers plenty of snowman and sledding possibilities. And the kid-friendly facilities at the Tahoe Donner recreational ski area, as well as Kids Planet at Soda Springs, are just minutes away by car. There is also sledding fun to be found at the Tahoe Donner golf course. If you want to go further afield, a short 15-20 minute drive will get you to the Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows ski resorts.

For family down time, cozy up to the fireplace on the oversized sectional, watch a movie on the flat screen TV, or pull out one of the many family games from the cupboard.

NOTE: This top floor condo is one of only four units and, as such, is very private and peaceful. The unit includes a one-car garage, but there is also an additional parking spot outside if you need to bring two vehicles.

The condo is Wi-Fi enabled.

NO PETS are allowed as the owner’s children are allergic.

About Michelle Erickson

North Lake Tahoe has held a special place in our hearts ever since we moved to the Bay Area more than a decade ago. However, as our family grew, it became important to us to find a home away from home that would give our children the opportunity to also fall in love with this magical part of the world.

P.S. The photo is of our boys 'exploring' the trails right behind our property.

What makes this condo unique

Located in the four-season resort community of Tahoe Donner, our condo is situated only 4 properties away from the Northwoods Clubhouse. This means that our children and the children of our guests have a huge outdoor playground, an awesome swimming pool (with slide and toddler wading pool), an indoor interactive playroom, bocce ball courts, tennis courts, movie nights, archery and lots of pizza right on their doorstep.

In addition the Trout Creek Recreation Center and the Tahoe Donner Snowplay Area are less than a mile away. And the kid-friendly Tahoe Donner Downhill Ski Area, Equestrian Center and Beach Club Marina are only 3 miles away.

Equally important is the fact that we have taken care to equip our home away from home with everything that a child might need during a stay in Tahoe – from toys, games, and outdoor equipment (like sleds and inflatable boats), to bed safety rails, a portable high chair, a stroller and a pack-n-play etc.

All of this combined makes our home absolutely perfect for families – regardless of the time of year that they visit.

Very comfortable stay

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay - very clean, comfortable and conveniently located. A perfectly sized condo for our family of four. We also had fun using the nearby rec center's amenities, including the hot tubs. Thanks for the guest passes!

A perfect place to stay

  • 5 of 5

From the minute you walk in the door, this condo is charming, cozy and immaculate. It met all of our needs for 3 nights and is the perfect place for a family vacation. The décor is very tasteful and all of the furnishings are nice. The beds are extremely comfortable with quality linens - perfect for a restful slumber after a day on the slopes. The location couldn't be better - close to Truckee and a short drive to some of the best skiing around.

Cozy family home

  • 5 of 5

The property is cozy and very neat and clean inside. During our winter stay, the snow scene in the vicinity was very beautiful. The owner Michelle is very friendly and prompt with communications (email or text message). The kids enjoyed the place as well, there are some board games, kids videos and even toys in the apartment if they are bored playing with snow outside. The covered garage is very nice especially in the winter. Upon leaving, we made sure that we did what the owner asked us of the few things we should do, and our deposit was returned to us within 1 week of departure. Would definitely recommend this place to family with kids.

Great Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this condo. Perfect for families with children...the location is close to the Tahoe Donner amenities, the condo layout is functional and very well-equipped for families with small children. We would definitely rent this property again.

A great place to stay

  • 4 of 5

I took my family of 4 to Tahoe and stated at this home. It was a great place to stay. The condo was clean, well maintained and very comfortable. Truckee is a great location - and it didn't hurt that the snow was great. The owners were helpful and responsive. The beds were comfortable - except the bunk beds which had a plastic protector that we had to remove. The condo had extra pillows - a big plus - but no pillow cases for the extra pillows. But that is a minor quibble. Yes, we will return.

  • 5 of 5

Probably the cleanest and best kept house we have ever rented. We spent a memorable Thanksgiving weekend along with our kids (a 4 year old and two teens), feeling like we were home. Highly recommended!
