More about Tahoe City
Tahoe City is an unincorporated town in Lake Tahoe and it was officially established over 100 years ago as a mountain community in 1913.
Tahoe City is centrally located in North Lake Tahoe with both California Highway 89 South (West Shore) and California Highway 28 (North Shore) as primary access roads in the community.
Like most towns in the United States, Tahoe City has defined boundaries. The North Shore area reaches out approximately three (3) miles east along California Highway 28 (starting at the “Y” traffic light in Downtown Tahoe City) to just past the Dollar Point neighborhood area ending at the Chinquapin Condominium Complex.
The West Shore area also reaches out approximately three (3) miles south along California Highway 89 South (starting at the “Y”) ending in the middle of the Hurricane Bay area.
Just as an FYI, some real estate agents will identify the Skyland neighborhood as the end of the Tahoe City community, while others identify it as the beginning of the Homewood community. On this website it appears in both community neighborhoods, but Skyland technically is in the Homewood, CA area.

The Tahoe City area has a mix of older, smaller mountain cabins, along with larger, newer mountain homes. The area offers single family home lots (including lakefront, waterfront, split lakefront, split waterfront, beach front, split beach front), duplex, triplex, four-plex, motel, and commercial lots in this community.
Tahoe City is one of the larger, developed communities in North Lake Tahoe and is unique because it offers neighborhoods on both the West Shore of Lake Tahoe and the North Shore of Lake Tahoe.
Despite being one of the larger communities in the area, there is a very limited supply of homes, which is due to the over-all building and development restrictions in place by the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency (TRPA) and Placer County.
The Tahoe City subdivisions are small. Home owners that want to belong to one of the optional recreational home owner amenities associations will find their home buying options are limited.
Tahoe City properties with access to a Home Owner Association recreational option (private Lake Tahoe beach area, shared pier, buoy rental option, tennis courts, or pool) will find those properties tend to carry a market premium over other neighborhoods where getting a HOA membership is not an option
