Recent South Lake Tahoe reviews

  • Snowy Holiday

    "My objective was to find a rental that would allow a 4 day stay, have easy snow play access, a wood burning fireplace, and be affordable. Enjoyed our stay immensely! Cabin was clean and comfortable. Perfect amount of space for our party of 4 adults and 2 kids. Made good use of the fireplace, owners supplied lots of firewood. We were blessed with fresh snow a couple of days after arriving! Kids enjoyed playing in the beautiful forest across the street. We were stuck for part of a day due to snowy roads, but the snowplow came quickly to clear roads. We were able to venture out by early evening, and took a drive to the nearby casinos. Owners were easy to work with. Thank you for helping make our holiday so memorable!"

  • Golf vacation

    "We stayed at this property in August of 2014. Very clean and quiet home and the owner is very accommodating and easy to work with. House is close to golf, bars and restaurants but far enough away that you feel somewhat secluded. Property was everything it was described to be and we will definitely stay there our next golf vacation to Tahoe!"

  • An Awesome New Year's Getaway!

    "The house was amazing! It had plenty of room for our family which included teenagers and grandparents. The house was clean and well-maintained, and the layout was perfect - everyone had their own space. The house is in a nice neighborhood located about 20 minutes from Heavenly Village. If you are going skiing, Sierra Ski Resort is close, and a great choice. We would also recommend Lake Tahoe Adventures for snow mobiling. The owners were easy to work with, and available to answer questions. We would definitely like to stay here again."

  • "The Best Family Vacation Ever!"

    "That is an exact quote from one young adult in our seven family reunion. When you put together a multi-family reunion with ages from toddlers to retirees, it is a huge challenge to find accommodation that everyone finds great...and this is the place! It is so large - with so many "activity" areas and sleeping rooms - no one never felt cramped or closed in. The dining area was huge and the kitchen was fully pre-stocked with virtually every cooking utensil or appliance needed so preparing large meals and serving the entire group always went smoothly. The younger crowd loved all the on-site activities (kayak, canoe, paddle boat, table tennis, poker/card table, pool table, dart board and even fishing right from the dock. The adults loved all the outdoor seating areas, the fast wi-fi (for checking business emails) and, of course, the bar with the keg cooler. The owner, Jim, was super accommodating during the entire process from showing the property to booking it to being there on our day of arrival to insure everything was explained and working. It was comforting to know that the owner was nearby and available if anything important was to need attention during our stay. Having been a luxury vacation home and resort property manager, I recommend this beautiful waterfront vacation home - without hesitation - to anyone looking to have a truly memorable stay in South Lake Tahoe. Thanks Jim!"

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.
