Property type condo
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

Our fully equipped condo is located in Gold Bend at Northstar-at-Tahoe, a fabulous resort in Lake Tahoe. We are ideally located a few minutes ride to the resort or a 10 minute walk. A free resort shuttle can also pick you up and take you to the resort for a day of skiing, shopping, dining, mountain biking, or in the summer simply spend a day at the two pools, fitness center or for the more energetic, tennis.

The condo is equipped with everything you will need for a relaxing or energetic retreat. The kitchen is fully stocked for cooking, so just bring your groceries and you will find everything else you need.

This is a two story condo with the two bedrooms located on the entry level. There is a queen size bed in the master bedroom with a private deck and two-twins in the second bedroom. There is one bathroom and a laundry room with a washer/dryer and an extra sink and mirror. Towels, extra sheets, pillows, laundry detergent are all provided.

You will find the kitchen, dining area and living room on the upper level with views of trees and mountains off the deck. A BBQ is also located on this deck. There is a wood/gas fireplace that make this place quite cozy in the winter.

There is a blow up mattress and extra linens should you need them.

About Tina Clark

Dave and Nancy Clark were raising their 4 children in Palo Alto, CA back in the 1970’s and wanted a vacation home where they could get away on weekends. Long time residents of the Bay Area, Lake Tahoe was close enough to make it an easy choice. Dave and Nancy eventually retired to Hawaii, but spent several months of the year in Lake Tahoe, visiting old friends from Dave's days as Editor at Sunset Books, his fraternity buddies from Cal Berkeley, and fellow WWII vets. Dave and Nancy made many friends over the years and enjoyed visiting them during their stays here.

Tina Clark purchased this condo in 1975

Why Tina Clark chose Lake Tahoe North Shore CA

Back in 1975, Mom and Dad looked at a number of places before settling on 5016. What did it the most for them was the view off the deck, with the mountains and the indigenous trees all about, and the good feelings it gave them. They were also pleased by the peace and solitude the place provided. Dad loved to golf, Mom loved walking. It was their home away from home.

What makes this condo unique

5016 is representative of early Northstar, retaining much of the original styling and appointments with which it came. The condo is within close proximity to The Village, which has been renovated and improved a lot! The Village has shops and restaurants to enjoy all year round, music events, and a skating rink for ice skating in the winter, and roller skating in the summer. (Skates can be rented there.) We’re about 20 minutes from Lake Tahoe or Truckee. Skiing is great and access simple. The cabin is just a short walk to the free shuttle that takes you to the mountain. Cal/Nevada border is about 25 minutes away and is a fun place too. Whatever you decide to do, returning to 5016 will provide comfort and relaxation after a busy day. For almost 40 years, The Clark family has created great memories in this condo and in Lake Tahoe, from Dave and Nancy, to their children and grandchildren. We hope you create wonderful memories of your own during your stay.

Pleasant and great location

  • 4 of 5

Really warm weather so condo was hot and no fans. Would recommend bringing one even if cooler weather just for ventilation and air movement. But that was the only drawback to stay. Great accomodations and location. Easy access to Northstar and Truckee

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your stay and providing feedback! Great idea. The weather has been much warmer this year than past years. We will purchase fans on our next visit. Thanks again.

Great space and roomy

  • 4 of 5

Great amenities, liked the separate living area and sleeping area. Had all the amenities we needed. Loved the easy controls and easy access in and out. Great washer and dryer. Grateful for the microwave, coffee maker and the tons of extra towels (life saver) and clean throughout.

Great place for small family

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the condo. Owners was very efficient and responsive with making the transaction. When we arrived everything was ready. Condo is very well equipped and the actual condition is better than it seems to be from the photos. High quality comfortable mattresses. What really makes the place shine is the location right to Northstar village, which makes it perfect for skiing vacation.
