Tahoe City Homes and Area Information

Interested in purchasing a home in the Tahoe City area?
Tahoe City is the hub of activity on the Northshore in the summer and winter. There are multiply restaurant to eat at. Some have been around since 1964. Rosies Cafe for one.

In the winter the Snowfest Parade goes right down the center of town, shutting down the highway for about 45 minutes. The elementary school is also located downtown and once housed all grades. You will find a few hotels to stay at and then walk to where you want to go, especially if it is in the middle of our busy season. The Tahoe City Library is located here as well. You can walk to the water, play on the shoreline, or head away from the lake and take a hike on the Tahoe Rim Trail.

The housing near Tahoe City encompasses a wide array of homes. You will find small older cabins to new lakeview homes. If you own a property on either side of Tahoe City up to about 3 miles, you would consider your residence to be in Tahoe City. The high school is located in the Highlands, a subdivision not far from downtown. It has more primary residents than second home owners living here.  Another highlight of the Highlands neighborhood is the Tahoe Cross Country Ski area.  It is open in the winter for skate skiing, striding and snow shoeing. In the summer the ski trails transform into hiking and biking trails.  This network of trails spans from Northstar to the north or Tahoe City to the south.

Three miles north of Tahoe City on Highway 28 is Lake Forest. There is a large  complex located there called Lake Forest Glen. This area has a big draw due to the fact that you don’t have to cross the highway to access the lake. There are some very large homes, lakefront homes, small quaint cabins and also a lakefront  complex called Saint Francis.

To the south of Tahoe City is an area called Comstock Acres. This is another great area for primary residences due to wide and level streets as well as the proximity to Tahoe City. The Granlibakken Resort is also located here, offering accommodations for conferences and  privately owned units. It turns into a ski area in the winter.

Traveling further south on Highway 89 brings you to the Westshore.
The Tahoe House, near Comstock Acres, in my opinion, has the best coffee on the lake. Stop by and enjoy baked goods and coffee in the morning or a sandwich at lunchtime. This is a very popular place with the locals as well.
