  • WONDERFUL PLACE!

    "We had an amazing time. This cabin was filled with everything! From the kitchen to the game room every detail was thought out. Our family has a variety of age groups and everyone had a wonderful time! They even had the baby gate for the stairs(which we had not thought of for our 21 month old grandson). Bonnie & Kris were wonderful, they were very helpful with all our questions. Even helping us order a pay per view fight for the guys! Definitely making this a future family trip! Thanks Bonnie & Kris for everything!"

  • Nice Tahoe retreat!

    "The cabin is very cozy and has a nice old feel and charm. It is a bit outdated, but never the less was very comfortable! The hot tub was ready to use upon arrival and the fireplace was very nice! The heater in the house kept throwing the breaker even without anything else in the house on, so going outside in the snow to get the heater back on was annoying after the first couple times. We ended up buying firewood and having fires instead. The bbq didn't work and is in older condition. We cleaned it out of what looked like years of food crud in the bottom, but could not get the gas to flow. We were all very competent cooks, so we just went inside and used the kitchen instead. Minus the two inconveniences, the stay was wonderful! Great cabin, attentive owners! There were even some bears in the tree right out front which was an awesome sight!"

  • Great House!

    "Beautiful house, new and very nicely furnished with great wooden floors and clean rugs and carpets, huge deck and nice garden. Very respectful and easy to communicate with agency; they even have an app that gives you all the details of a check in etc. Easy, clear instructions on how to get in the house, both by email and via the app. We had a one-year old crawler with us and the place is easy to make child safe-just block one staircase and watch for the child not to go inside of the fireplace:) The only downside of the house was you could hear every step from upstairs while downstairs; it is no problem if everybody goes to sleep and wakes up at about the same time (which was not the case with us). Would love to come back."

South Lake Tahoe Travel Tips

Hailed as one of the nation's top outdoor playgrounds, South Lake Tahoe packs more nature than you'll know what to do with.

South Lake Tahoe at a Glance

South Lake Tahoe is a freshwater lake that rests in the valley of the Sierra Nevada mountain range on the border between California and Nevada. The lake itself formed 2 million years ago during the Ice Age and is the second-deepest lake in the U.S., bottoming out at 1,645 feet. Beside it sits the city of South Lake Tahoe, home an endless array of outdoor recreation. When the mountain slopes are covered in snow, winter lovers make their way here for skiing and snowboarding. When the summer sun is out, hiking and swimming become some of the go-to activities.

Winter Wonderland

Ski and Snowboard: There's no question that skiing and snowboarding are Lake Tahoe's bread and butter. With 40 feet of snow and 300 days of sunshine a year, this region couldn't get any better for winter sports. At Hope Valley Outdoors Cross-Country Ski Center, you'll find 60 miles of groomed and ungroomed trails. Nearby, Heavenly Mountain Resort's hills feature a variety of terrain, including rolling glades, terrain parks and black diamonds. Kirkwood Mountain Resort ranks as one of the nation's top year-round family destinations, complete with a base elevation of 7,800 feet that allows more annual snowfall than any other resort in the U.S. You'll be up to your neck in snow and faced with the difficult decision of which pristine run to choose.

If you don't want to schlep your board or skis, no worries. There are plenty of rental options that offer quality equipment. Lessons are offered too, but be prepared to pay for it.

Summer Slopes

Mountain Biking: Since Tahoe South has been designated as a Bike Friendly Community, the bike paths spread far and wide. Take the adrenaline-filled downhill at Saxon Creek, which has been nicknamed Mr. Toad's Wild Ride, or cruise down Flue Trail. Between the range of trails, there are rides for every experience level. The famous loop around Lake Tahoe is 72 miles long and one of the most stunning with mountain vistas, deep blue water and Emerald Bay. For the fearless, you can even connect trails and take on the challenge of seven summits in one day.

Hiking and Running: In Lake Tahoe, you don't need to be a dedicated jogger to get runner's high - simply soaking in the vistas yields a contact euphoria. There is a network of trails for hiking meant for the beginner, hardcore and everyone in between. A crowd favorite is Mount Tallac Trail, rising 3,000 feet in elevation for 5 miles where novice hikers thrive. Along other trails, you can discover waterfalls, alpine meadows and glacier-carved granite slopes. In the winter, strap on some snowshoes and endeavor up the same trails. Snowy Lake Tahoe is beyond serene.

Golfing: Try to concentrate as the snow-capped mountains and gorgeous pines in the distance keep distracting your swing. The Tahoe South region has six unique golf courses. Bijou Municipal is the oldest course around, with nine holes perfect for families and beginners. If grandma and grandpa come during the week, check for senior discounts. Six minutes northeast lies Edgewood Tahoe, which is regarded as one of the most breathtaking courses in the country. It has well-manicured fairways that border Lake Tahoe. Besides being home to the American Century Championship, it is also one of Golf Digest's top 25 public U.S. courses. Tahoe Paradise and Lake Tahoe Golf Course make for other popular options.

On the Water

Fishing: Lake Tahoe is so clear that you can see 75 feet below its surface. Makes fishing easier, right? Come find out. Depending on the season, anglers can expect to catch lake trout, rainbow trout and kokanee salmon. The good news is that lake trout season is open year-round. If you don't want to venture alone, there are a number of fishing charters and knowledgeable guides to show you the ropes.

Action Watersports: When the kids' patience runs thin, opt for the high-powered thrill of jet skis, waverunners, power boats and water skis. Many visitors enjoy seeing Emerald Bay from the privacy of their own boats. There are also sailing cruises that will help you leave the heckling world of cell phones and engines behind. You can rent everything here.

Out and About

Local Culture: Tahoe South is home to a flourishing arts scene, full of exhibiting galleries and working studios. On Lake Tahoe Boulevard you'll find Marcus Ashley Fine Art Gallery, one of the region's biggest hot spots. The venue houses a variety of works from American and international artists. Pacific Crest Gallery showcases fine art, jewelry and gifts. When the weather is warm, live performances take the stage at the annual Valhalla Arts, Music and Theatre Festival.

Nightlife: After a busy day of shredding the slopes, paint the town red with South Lake Tahoe's vibrant nightlife. Between hipster dive bars to bumping nightclubs, every type of personality will find be able to find their niche. There are also casinos, pubs and karaoke hotspots that will sure to put a smile on your face.
