The space

Comfortable accommodations with queen bed, flat screen TV (with DVD player and cable), and sitting area with dining table and fully furnished kitchen including microwave, refrigerator, dishwasher, stove top, dishes, silverware, and pots and pans and coffee maker. This apartment has an outside porch, which is shared with the next door unit, with lounge chairs and a small table.

This apartment is on a large motel-like property that includes beachfront access. This unit is set back from the street on the forest side of the property, which is perhaps 100 yards away and across the street from the beach.

Guest access

Private beach year round, pool and volleyball court in the summer. Boat mooring buoys are available in the summer and at the additional cost of $25 per day.

The neighbourhood

We love that this location is not only right by the Lake and in the midst of the natural beauty of Tahoe National Forest, but also just minutes from Northstar Ski Resort, a quick drive to Safeway supermarket, great restaurants nearby, and under 3 miles to the Nevada border and casinos.

Getting around

TART is the local bus, which carries people around the lake and into Truckee. There is a stop just out front.

Other things to note

The wireless Internet at this location is only suitable for the most basic of Internet activities like checking email. During busy times of year, it can become overloaded.

There is a fan in the closet if you need some cooling air flow. Extra blanket there too.

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at Neil & Tamela's place. The cottage was neat, comfortable, quiet and pleasantly situated across the street from the lake. Neil was courteous and an excellent communicator.

Would definitely book with them again! The location was beautiful and the cabin had everything you could possibly need for a relaxing get away. Everything was clean and check in/out was super easy and smooth. Loved it.

The room was great. Neil let us check in early and we had everything we needed in the kitchenette. The Safeway was half a mile away and the lake was right across the street. Will definitely stay here again.

Great location by lake tahoe! Has a motel-ish feel, with a small kitchen for cooking. Note: not all the apartments are right by the lake, as shown in the picture. Some are across the street

The Franciscan Lakeside Lodge is close to so many restaurants and a quick drive to ski & snowboard resorts (Homewood, Alpine, Squaw Valley, Diamond Peak). Do note that this lodge has a lake side and forest side; your stay will be on the forest side (across the street). It's a very quick and convenient walk to the lake, though. The check-in desk is also lakeside. Neil & Tamela are great hosts-- even though we didn't personally meet, they stayed in touch to make sure we checked in OK, and responded quickly to answer questions during our stay. We loved the studio itself! Comfy bed and pillows, a stocked kitchenette, warm heater, plenty of space for two people, easy parking for guests. The front desk at the lodge has lots of information if you're looking for more things to do around the North Shore. You can also rent DVDs. Wifi was also not a problem. We will definitely return in the summer! If you enjoy the quieter, more laid back side of Tahoe, come to the North Shore.

Lived, worked, traveled all over the U.S. and the globe. As a youngster and into adulthood I have experienced both sides--hosting and being hosted--and have had some of my most memorable life experiences that way.
