Zephyr Cove–a miniature town with major appeal

Set on the southeastern shore of Lake Tahoe, this tiny resort town packs a punch. Bathed in sunshine year-round, with warm summers and snowy winters, a Zephyr Cove vacation rental is the perfect destination in any season. The Sierra Nevada Mountains provide a picturesque backdrop for water sports and boat rides. Once the air turns cold, trade your fishing poles for ski poles and hit the slopes or the snowmobile trails. When the great outdoors has finally tuckered you out, there’s always a family-friendly tour available at one of the area’s historic sites.
