About Lyle & Mary

We live in Reno and love being able to share our lovely getaway with others. As our children have grown and left the nest, we find we don't go up to the lake as often as we should. If you want a place to go where you can relax in comfort and escape the outside world - you've found it. This is a small complex with all the amenities you want. The access to the lake and private beach is easy and a rare find at Tahoe.

Why Lyle & Mary chose Lake Tahoe North Shore

After years of renting places for our summer vacations, we couldn't beleive our good fortune when we were able to accomplish our dream of having our own place at Tahoe. Face it - who doesn't love Tahoe? We knew we would keep it forever, passing it on to future generations. When we decide to open up the place as a vaction rental, we wanted to make guests would have a positive experience. We certainly had our share of 'surprises' back when we were renting places so we strive to make our place feel like your place. The location is very desireable. It is a small copmplex- 52 total units - spread out over a large area. You can wander off into the woods and lose yourself in the serenity. You can walk or bike into town (Tahoe City 2.5 miles). The tennis courts are rarely full and there is a beautiful pool with comfortable chairs/lounges, tables and even real rest rooms! The beach is well maintained and staffed with helpful people. No need to bring an umbrella or chair, they have them at your disposal. You can launch your boat nearby (Coast Guard Station - Lake Forest) for day use or rent one in town. In the winter you have your choice of many world class ski areas nearby (10-15 miles). Want some night life? Just 45 minutes to Reno. 20 minutes to Truckee or Incline Village. South Lake Tahoe is about an hour away. We are proud to share our lovely vacation home with you and promise to do our best to make sure your first visit isn't your last.

All around great

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience here! The place was very nice and in proximity to restaurants, grocery stores, and resorts. Parking is easy. You can also take an easy walk to the beach (we were the only people there and got to enjoy a sunset to ourselves)! There is also a nice view of the lake from this property. The owners are very communicative and helpful; we received clear easy instructions for check in/out and small helpful notes are left around the place for all the appliances/fireplace/wifi etc.

One of the things that makes this place stand out are the conveniences of fully stocked rooms. The kitchen had everything we needed to make 6+ homemade meals, and we found everything we could have possibly needed for our stay. Examples include, ample bath towels, lots of extra blankets, Kleenex in each room, air freshener in each bathroom, shampoo/conditioner, Tupperware, paper towels, and even phone chargers. There is a lot more, but the bottom line is that the owners make an effort to provide you with everything you need to have a comfortable stay.

Would highly recommend! Thank you!

Love this townhouse!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here twice and it's become our home away from home. We have been renting vacation homes at Tahoe for 30 years and this is the best place we have ever stayed. It's very quiet, has a beautiful view, and is a pleasant short walk to the lake with a private beach and pier. The three levels allow lots of privacy for our multi-generational family. Can't wait to go back!

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

A great place to come back to after a full day of skiing!

Close proximity to restaurants, stores and skiing.

Perfect for a family getaway or a group of friends getting away for the weekend.

This is our second year staying here and will definitely book for next season.

The owner has always been very accommodating and helpful. Many thanks Lyle!!

Great Weekend Getaway near tahoe City

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this townhouse. The listing was very accurate. Compared to other listings this was very affordable. The property was very clean and comfortable for our family. Plenty of space for all of us (5). My 2 daughters shared one room and my son had the other downstairs. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes, pots and pans and anything else you may need. We ended up eating all our meals "in".

The townhouse is easy to get to and very centrally located to Tahoe City and the Lake. Close to shopping and the grocery store.

I would highly recommend this townhouse for a week or weekend.

It was everything we needed in a great location

  • 5 of 5

My family and a couple guests went skiing and found this tasteful little condo delightful. The small kitchen was well-equipped and appliances worked well, the beds and bedding were very comfortable and it was easy to access and load/unload compared to some hillside locations we've rented. The thermostat-gas insert made having a fire easy. We will definitely rent here again, as the location was so central we could ski all of the North Lake ski areas. We cooked our dinners, breakfasts, etc. but the location is very close to Tahoe City with grocery stores and restaurants if you want to eat out. There's no covered parking, but the complex keeps clears the roads and parking spots of snow.

I am a repeat renter of the condo in question for more than several years. The property has always been clean and well-maintained. The facilities, i.e. bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchen are ideal for our group of 4 seniors which more than meet our requirements. Further, one has the option of dining in or out since there are several fine restaurants within a 15 minute drive. Supplies provided in the kitchen are more than adequate for basic in-house dining.

We especially enjoy the location of the property being close to many fine ski areas within a short driving distance.

I would not hesitate recommending the property to a relative, family or group wishing to enjoy what Lake Tahoe has to offer or to skiers who wish to ski at many of the wonderful areas.
