About the Property
4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Great Location Winter or Summer
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!

Lake Forest Glen is located just two miles from Tahoe City which is runs along the beautiful shores of Lake Tahoe. Tahoe city has all the conveniences needed during your stay. Restaurants and shops are abundant and always within the magnificient view of Lake Tahoe. The location is perfect summer or winter. Our condo is within walking distance to the lake and only a short drive from four major ski areas.
Year Purchased: 1999
About the owner: We are Patricia and Larry Scarcia and we live in Glenwood, Maryland. Yes, that's right, Maryland. We own an excavating company that does small intricate jobs mostly in the middle of Washington, DC. Larry manages the work in the field and I take care of all the paperwork in the office. I also do home organizing and staging for real estate agents and specialize in helping seniors who are downsizing to retirement communities. We have three grown children and one spectacular five year old grandson. When our middle son moved out to the north Lake Tahoe area in 1997 we realized a second home in this beautiful area of the world might be a reality for us!
Why the Owner Chose Lake Forest, Dollar Point, CA, USA:
In 1999 my husband and I decided to purchase a second home as an investment property in Tahoe City. Since we live in Maryland most of our friends purchased a second home at the beach on Maryland's eastern shore, but not us. As avid skiers we had visited our son in Tahoe and fell in love with the area and decided Tahoe City was a dream place to buy! We could enjoy the best of winter at the local world class ski resorts and the best of summer in this picturesque town located right on Lake Tahoe. We have enjoyed this condo for the last 15 years as we travel back and forth from the east coast. Our son lived in the condo on and off for many years with various roommates. Now that he is married and has a home of his own, we feel like we finally have the place to ourselves (when we are there). Unfortunately we cannot always be here, so we have decided to share our dream place with others who decide to visit the beautiful Lake Tahoe area.
The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
We were so happy to find a condo with not just three, but four bedrooms and three full bathrooms in our price range (as there were not a lot of listings in the spring of 1999)...so, we bought the condo site unseen on the advice of our real estate agent and our 20 year old son. We were quite trusting, weren't we?!?! As it turned out this was the perfect condo for us. The location in Lake Forest Glen is quiet and private being one of the few condos located right on the meadow with great views of the surrounding mountains. Most of the other condos within our complex do not a have as much privacy as our condo. Many of the units back up to the road or other units. A fourth bedroom on the main level is a plus that gives its guests extra privacy with the benefit of a full bathroom with a shower. There are very few, if any other condos for rent in Lake Forest that have three full baths. The Lake Forest Glen management does a great job of keeping our pools clean, our grounds beautifully maintained and most importantly the snow cleared from our roads in the winter, so you can get out early to ski! As long distance owners Lake Forest Glen offered all the amenities any visitor or owner would want, without having to worry about any maintenance.
