Recent South Lake Tahoe reviews

  • Great for a large group

    "This house was perfect for me and 12 of my friends. It had great entertainment - pool table/ping pong table, hot tub, barbecue, and a golf course right across the street. The kitchen was perfect size and the refrigerator had a water feature that saved us most mornings! The living room is large with plenty of space in the other bedrooms and areas of the house. I never felt cramped once, even with 13 people being home at one time. Parking wasn't a problem either because of the large driveway and garage. I would highly recommend staying here in the winter and/or summer if you have a big family or large group trying to get away for the week/weekend. The only reason I am not giving 5 stars is because we had to fill the propane tank for the grill ($30 out of pocket), a few of the lights didn't work upstairs and the TV in the living room wouldn't turn on for some reason (TV's in bedrooms were fine though). I didn't have any issues with the owners and I would rent this house again from them in the future."

  • Very pleasant

    "This is a wonderful well maintained home. We had 6 adults and everyone was extremely comfortable in this spacious property. The area is very quiet but close enough to shopping and hiking, biking trails are close by. We would definitely stay again."

  • Best Tahoe Rental Ever!!!

    "John and Mandy were great to work with, this place is big and great for our two families, they recently built a big redwood deck and fenced in the whole back yard so our kids could play without worry, there is a game room in the back and the two bunk rooms are great with their own tv and about 30 movies for them to watch, the kids had there own wing of the lodge to play in, and the adults stayed up front by the fireplace (in peace), big hot tub that was great and so close to Heavenly Ski and the casinos, also close to the lake we would walk down at night and watch the sun set....covered parking was nice to keep snow off cars. We also walked to Snowflake for burgers and shakes, and to Rojos for BBQ and beers....fun time, already booked again for summer...."

  • PERFECT LOCATION

    "My family of 5 got to enjoy this beautiful getaway rental for 4 days & 3 nights! It came equipped with absolutely everything we needed. My kids each had their own bed and space for their belongings. We enjoyed our coffee on the balcony every morning as we looked at the beautiful scenery of pine trees. The kitchen is spacious and set up for entertaining. Plenty of windows for natural lighting & fresh crisp Lake Tahoe air! We didn't want to leave and are itching to go back. Pool table & a good size tv and seating area upstairs for a nice family movie night was a plus. We all felt at home and comfortable. The bedding was clean and the way the rooms were set up were very functional. It also has a washer and dryer with detergent and dry sheets. All I had to bring was food and my clothes everything else was provided even though we did bring our own necessities. The wood beam ceilings and all the copper accents gave this home extra beauty. 15-20 minutes away from any activity you have in mind...casinos, hikes, the beach, history...the list goes on. I'll be checking the calendar as soon as I post this to see when we can go back!!!! Once you visit Lake Tahoe you'll be hooked too. Thank you to the owners for opening up your beautiful home to everyone so that they can make memories with their loved ones."

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.
