Beach Information

Family Vacations in North Lake Tahoe during the summer consist of everything including but not limited to days lounging at the lake or taking a scenic drive to Emerald Bay.

Guest Reviews

Lexington, Kentucky

"Super convenient to the hill!
The condo was very nice. Service was great. Ski locker was a bonus. We loved being able to cook meals, and have skiers return home on their own schedule."

Beautiful room, great view. Huge bathroom, jetted tub, granite, great appliances, laundry, fireplace, nice TV and sound systems. Service was excellent."

"Some of the best lodging I’ve stayed in - ever!
All I can say is "Swanky!" We had an enormous living room, kitchen and balcony area. I loved the fireplace. Staff was cheery, helpful."
