  • Even Better than we had hoped for!

    "My sister and I stayed here for a few days of rest and relaxation. It was ideal for the two of us. Lily was great at getting back to us and making sure our questions were answered timely. The home was very clean and everything we could think us was provided for, (including lots of towels, a hair dryer, soaps and shampoos, cleaning products, etc.). The beds were comfortable and the kitchen was well stocked with baking and cooking equipment as well as paper goods. There is a Safeway market nearby to get anything else you will need. We loved the garden that led up to the lake. It was very peaceful to sit outside on the patio and have our morning coffee. The neighbors were very kind, quiet, and respectful of our privacy. Even though the water level in the lake was very low, we found a silver lining..... We had our own private beach! Everything was so close that we could walk almost everywhere we wanted to go. Yet, the home was far enough off the main road to make it feel like we were in the woods. The neighborhood is well cared for and we felt very safe. We walked to the small town and rented bikes from the Tahoe Bike Company. They were terrific, reasonably priced and provided us with maps of great trail rides. We also took the gondola at Heavenly. Spectacular views and great hiking at the top as well as a really fun ropes course, zip line, and tubing. Get there early to zip line. It sells out quickly! There is a public beach, (also walking distance), which has kayaks and paddle boards to rent, an ice cream store, live music and events. If you are a sweet-tooth, don't miss the Bear's Den at the Ski Run Marina. They have lots of souvenirs, but the best part was their almond roca and fudge! The lady that works there is really passionate about Lake Tahoe and she can give you the low down on everything that is happening around town - just ask!"

  • RELAXING RETREAT WITH A BEAUTIFUL VIEW!

    "We enjoyed every minute of our stay! Everything was definitely as advertised or better! Very comfortable, decorated nicely. The view from the upstairs was incredible to wake up to and so close to the lake you felt you were in it. We were on the upstairs and downstairs balconies for coffee in the morning and wine in the afternoons. Even though this is part of a condo complex, it was designed to have a very private feel, never heard the neighbors. Beds were very comfortable ( and I'm tough to please). Kitchen was very well equipped. Unit was close to all of the Tahoe area activities. We enjoyed a drive around the lake and hiking. Best restaurants were Macduffs Pub and Base Camp Pizza. Thanks again Melodie for sharing your home!"

  • Fantastic House!

    "We had an excellent time at this property. We went with two other families and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. And the fenced in back yard left us worry free with our kids! The house is well maintained and plenty of bedroom options for the families and kids. The owner is extremely easy to work with and very accessible for any questions or issues we had - and he followed up with us at every point."

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.
