About Lyle & Mary

Our family purchased this townhouse as our weekend and summer vacation getaway. Our children grew up enjoying all Tahoe has to offer. Skiing, boarding, boating, beaches, tennis, pool, hiking, biking... it's all at your doorstep. We chose this complex because it was small (about 50 townhomes) and most places are just used by the owners. It is very quiet and never crowded. We love just sitting on the deck and relaxing, surrounded by forest and beautiful views. Plenty to do right in the complex. Relax by the pool or on the private beach. Launch your boat nearby (Coast Guard Station launch) and cruise the lake. Don't have a boat? Rent one. Go Para Sailing or rafting on the Truckee River. Miles of bike paths to explore along the lake or river. A paradise for Mountain Bike lovers. Or just sit back and enjoy the game on TV with a cold drink. If you are looking for a quiet getaway, this is perfect. If you want even more action, Casinos and nightlife is a short drive to Reno or Incline Village.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Enjoyed our Time at North Shore very much. Have already recommended this property and the concept to others. Very, very quiet, great chance to enjoy the outdoors while BBQing on the deck.

Lake Forest Townhouse

  • 5 of 5

The townhouse is beautiful, had everything we needed to make our stay wonderful! We love Lake Tahoe. We were able to rent a kayak and it was delivered to the condo's private beach. Lyle answered any questions I had before arriving. We loved shopping in Tahoe City and Truckee. We definitely want to come back!

Vacation Lifesaver!

  • 5 of 5

I owe Lyle and Mary for what turned out to be the highlight of my summer. By a miracle of miracles their gorgeous vacation home was still available while I was trapped in less than stellar accommodations in a different part of Tahoe. Displaying the utmost patience for a complete Tahoe-newbie like myself, they hooked my wife and I up with this fantastic property. Trip saved! We spent the week hanging out on the private sandy beach, chatting with the families that had owned there for generations, and taking our kayaks in and out of the complex's super accessible docking space. We were so happy we barely left the property even though it had great proximity to markets/food/anything you need. I can't wait to go back for another relaxing week. Thank you both, you saved the day!

Great Tahoe getaway

  • 5 of 5

The condo was clean, surprisingly spacious, and had everything we needed for a perfect stay in Tahoe. Check in was easy and the landlords were very nice and helpful if we needed anything. The unit is quiet and the location was great-perfectly close to Squad valley and even closer to downtown restaurants and stores.
