There are quite a few North Lake Tahoe condo/Townhome complexes to choose from. Just to name a few, there are Lake Forest Glen, The Villas , Star Harbor, Dollar Hill II and Chinquapin. Each of these complexes offer something different. Some are located on the lake side of Highway 28, which makes for easy access to the shoreline. Some offer amenities like pools, tennis courts, playgrounds, piers and buoys. Everyone has different priorities that draw them to beautiful Lake Tahoe, so I am sure one of the many complexes located here will suite your needs. Another benefit to having your second home be a condo is the HOA (home owners association). Each complex may be slightly different, though generally they maintain the exterior, arrange for the snow removal and maintain the amenities and common area grounds.
