Recent Lake Tahoe reviews

  • Picture does not this home justice!!

    "Our family rented this house as 'home base' for our son's wedding in Lake Placid. We hosted the groomsmen & our young adult children --10 in all --- and were SO happy with this choice! The house is LOVELY and perfectly set up for entertaining. We had a choice of propane or charcoal grills, a 4-person hot tub, the sauna, a WONDERFUL fire circle, a game room, a sweet, meandering path down to Beaver Creek, acres of lawn space, an outstanding private master suite for me & hubby (complete with jacuzzi tub), miles of dirt road for running or walking -- it was just perfect! There are internet and TV, but no need to use either with so many other amenities! The one thing that was not mentioned in the description, and the reason we are seriously interested in returning, is a BUILT IN dog kennel & run!! We are VERY excited about returning to this house with our Goldens---they will love it! My son's friend summed it up perfectly when she first entered the house -- she dropped her duffle bag and said "WOW" and, with each turn she made, she repeated"WOW" -- we agree."

  • Clean & relaxing

    "The House was clean upon arrival and in a quiet neighborhood on a secluded lot. The access is only 2 steps up at the front, which is great for elderly dogs! The lot is level and lake front with great access for boating/canoes/fishing. The interior is laid out well for multiple family groups to allow privacy (we had 3 family groups), the Kitchen is well stocked -had a great Thanksgiving dinner. The only down side was the steep stair climb to the loft for a group movie night, as the only "common area" TV is on this second level. Only TV on the first floor is in the Master BR & the 3rd is upstairs in the Kids bedroom. But overall, the property is a great spot for relaxing, enjoying the Lake & getting to other surrounding communities for some sightseeing. The Owners are courteous and helpful from the initial reservation process to the final checkout and follow up."

  • "The Blue House" is beautiful!

    "We liked everything about the house. It is clean, well-cared for walking distance to town. The patio and yard are very spacious and quiet. The beds are comfortable, as is the living room. The bathrooms have been fully renovated, like the rest of the house. It appears that everyone in town knows the house as "The Blue House". You can't go wrong staying here."

    "Convenient and quiet location...easy walk to favorite coffee spot in town and to lagoon. House is well kept and nicely decorated. It's home away from home with all the amenities for a comfortable getaway. Spacious enough yet quite cozy. Will definitely stay here again!"

Lake Tahoe Travel Tips

Summer and Winter Activities at Lake Tahoe Vacation Rentals

During the summer months, Lake Tahoe enjoys long summer days and clear blue skies. Most people spend their leisure time out on the water. Favorite activities include fishing, waterskiing, wake boarding and boating. A number of areas are popular with sailboats. At some of the resorts, you can rent canoes and go exploring on the lake's shores. Some of the vacation homes located on Lake Tahoe have private jetties where you can moor your boat for the duration of your stay. There are several resorts and casinos that provide gaming and entertainment.

During the winter months, the area becomes a snow sports adventure land. There are more than 8,800 acres of ski trails in the South Lake Tahoe vacation rentals region alone. The ski resorts have miles of groomed ski runs which include downhill runs as well as cross country trails. Several of the resorts also have snowboarding terrain parks for those who want to show off their skills. While it is a very popular skiing destination, there are so many different ski runs that the slopes seldom feel crowded, even in peak season.

Best Time of Year to Visit Lake Tahoe Cabins

Lake Tahoe is one of those beautiful destinations that can be visited all year long. If you are looking for tranquility and seclusion, your best option is to visit during the spring or fall when there are fewer visitors to the lake. During the summer months, many families come to enjoy the water and the surrounding mountains. The season starts from early June and runs through to September. The peak summer season is during the months of July and August. In the winter, the ski season starts soon after the first solid snowfalls. These generally occur by the beginning of December. The ski season lasts until April, depending on the snowfall and weather conditions. The peak ski season is from December to February.

Visitors to Lake Tahoe Lodging

While there are many different accommodation options in Lake Tahoe, it is generally an up-market travel destination. Many well-known celebrities have vacation homes on the shores of Lake Tahoe. Generally, the homes are large and luxurious. The decor is stylish and most homes have views from the lounge and living areas that take in the view of the lake and surrounding mountains. Those who enjoy boating and water sports can be seen out on the lake during the warmer summer months. When the snowfalls occur, waterskis are exchanged for snow skis as winter sport enthusiasts head out to the ski slopes in the area. It is a destination for those who appreciate nature and enjoy the outdoors.

Getting to Lake Tahoe

The closest major airport, the Reno Lake Tahoe International Airport, is located in Nevada. It is located approximately 35 miles north of the lake. There are frequent shuttle busses that provide transport from the airport to major resorts on the lake in season. Alternatively. taxis provide point-to-point transfers. Car rental can also be easily arranged upon arrival. As an alternative, visitors can route via Sacramento International Airport which is approximately 70 miles west of Lake Tahoe. There are good road links to both California and Nevada, and many visitors are from the surrounding areas.
