Lakefront Development,
North Shore Lake Tahoe, California
The Franciscan Condominium Development is a lakefront development located on the North Shore of Lake Tahoe in the Tahoe Vista, California community.  The Franciscan Lakeside Lodge is located approximately 1.5 miles west of the Highway 267 and Highway 28 interchange in Kings Beach, CA.

The Franciscan Lakeside Lodge is a small lakefront development in North Lake Tahoe with approximately sixty-three (63) units, of which eleven (11) are lakefront units with no other units in front of them.  The complex is has about half of the units on the lakeside of Highway 28 and half on the non-lakefront or mountainside of Highway 28.
There are thirty-three (33) lake-side units in the development (these units are located on the lake side of Highway 28 and include the lakefront units) and thirty (30) units are located on the mountain-side (non-lakefront portion of the development, which is the mountain-side location of Highway 28).  All owners get to use all of the lakefront amenities in the development even if their unit is located on the non-lakefront area of the property.

The Franciscan 
complex was originally developed as a motel, and then converted into a motel cooperative, and then into a condominium, which is the current legal status of the Franciscan.  The Franciscan is a unique development because of their owner usage restrictions.  Full-time occupancy is not permitted, only vacation, or part-time owners, as owners are limited to using their units to fourteen (14) consecutive days at a time. 

The Franciscan complex has a full-time, on-site vacation rental desk on the property.  Owners are not required to be on the vacation rental program, but if they vacation rent their unit, they need to use the on-site property manager. 

Placer County records show that the property was built in the 1960's - 1970’s.  Most of the units in the complex are smaller and are either a studio, one (1) bedroom, or two (2) bedroom floor plans, but there is one four (4) bedroom unit in the development. 
Some of the amenities Th Franciscan Condo development offers their owners are a beautiful sandy beach area, shared pier, and buoy access. The pool is located on the non-lakefront side of the development, along with a playground area.  
Located close to Kings Beach on the North Lake Tahoe, the Franciscan condo development is close to the golf course, shopping, restaurants, Northstar Ski Resort, and the Nevada State line and all of the recreational activities the Lake Tahoe area has to offer.
