This lovely four bedroom and 3 bathroom townhome is located in a beautifully maintained complex of Lake Forest Glen just a short distance from downtown Tahoe City. Although our room sizes are not large, the condo can comfortably fit a mix of 3-5 adults with 2-4 children, with no more than a maximum of 8 guests. The condo complex includes an adult swimming pool with a year round hot tub and sauna, a family pool with a tot lot and four tennis courts. Lake Forest Glen is located on the Lake Tahoe side of the main road and is within walking distance to either the Skylandia or Lake Forest beaches. The Lake Forest public boat ramp is less than 1 mile from our front door. You can bike or walk into town on the paved path that is just around the corner from our private cul de sac. Great hiking is abundant in and around Tahoe City and can be found as close as the meadow that is our backyard or a short drive to the west shore, Squaw or Donner Pass. For winter enthusiasts you are located within a 10 to 20 minute drive from from four major ski resorts including Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, Homewood and Northstar. Tahoe XC Center is located less than a mile, right up the road or cross country ski in the meadow right out our back door.
Within our lovely updated condo you will find four bedrooms decorated in a cabin/cottage style. The master bedroom has a queen size bed, and en-suite bathroom with shower and a beautiful view of the meadow. The second guest room, 'the pink room' also has a queen bed and shares the main hall bathroom (which includes a bath tub/shower combination) with the third bedroom. The 'cowboy bunk room' has a double mattress bottom bunk and twin size top bunk. The fourth bedroom is located on the main level where there is a full bath with a shower. The fourth bedroom creates the perfect space for any guests that prefer to feel a bit separated from the rest of the group or others not wanting to climb the stairs. All of the upstairs bedrooms have cable TV. The main living area has a beautifully updated galley kitchen that includes a ten foot long granite dining bar, a dishwasher and a stacked washer and dryer on the far end. The kitchen is outfitted with all the small appliances, pots and pan and utensils that a chef would need.
Out the back door we have a large deck with a table that seats six, as well as other seating and a bench that runs the length of the deck. We also have a gas grill that can be used year round.
Tahoe City is such a wonderful, quaint, little town that is really a community. It is the only 'walking' town around the entire lake. Although our little town is less than a mile long, this town has everything a visitor needs. Beside the two grocery stores, a CVS and post office for convenience there are many recreational and ski shops for all your activity needs. You will find ski and snowboard rentals, ski clothing, bike, kayak and paddle board stores.There is a gym that faces out over the lake and several places to drop in on a yoga class, even right on the lake with a rented paddleboard! Others may be glad to find great clothing boutiques, art galleries, jewelry stores and T-shirt/souvenir shops. There are two interesting museums in town and the historic Fanny Bridge to view the dam that releases the lake water into the Truckee river. You will find several great pubs and restaurants located along our main street and right on the lakefront around the Tahoe City Marina and Yacht club. Every Sunday afternoon in the summer, you will hear the sounds of live music coming from the lake front at the free concert on Commons Beach. There is always a fun crowd of local families mixed with visiting tourists and children of all ages. All are enjoying lite fare from local vendors, picnics brought from home or barbecuing right on the beach. If you are not a skier or hiker you still will find endless fun things to do. Sightseeing is abundant in Tahoe City and the entire magnificent Lake Tahoe area!
