Incline Village Rental Question

My husband and I will be spending a week in Tahoe in August with our two boys (ages 3 and 5). It is our first visit to Tahoe. Thanks to the awesome advice offered on this forum, we have chosen to rent in the Incline Village area. We are interested in going to beaches, but also hiking, biking, kayaking, etc. I am trying to decide between two rental choices: a smaller condo in the McCloud complex that is within walking distance to Ski Beach (passes included, and I understand the $12pp admission fee) and a townhouse a couple of miles from the lake. I like the idea of being able to walk to the beach, but also think Burnt Cedar beach is a better match for our family if we are going to spend money on an admission fee. The townhouse is larger and stand-alone (i.e., our kids would not disturb the neighbors). So, I have two questions:

1. If we are walking distance to Ski Beach, are there other things near there (parks, shops, restaurants) that we would also be able to walk to?

2. Does anyone have a significant preference on which rental would be a better fit?

Thanks in advance!

I like the McCloud complex and it is a short walk (but remember you are at altitude) to shops and restaurants and the Hyatt Regency.

I suggest the McCloud complex to visitors every year that can't get lodging at the Hyatt's High Sierra, before it's sold out for the summer.

I'd think you want to be in walking distance to the Hyatt's restaurants, spa, bike rentals, etc. and all the other good restaurants across the street on Country Club Dr.

You've probably made your accommodation decision by now, but should you have any other questions you'll want to post in the Lake Tahoe, Nevada or Incline Village forum. Enjoy your stay!
