Tahoe City vacation rentals

The skiing and boating paradise that is Tahoe City

Lake Tahoe has long been synonymous with skiing, and Tahoe City is no exception. If it involves snow, you can likely do it in Tahoe City. With distinct traces of incense and tye-dye that may leave you feeling like you stepped back into the 60s, the vibrant downtown area has no shortage of charm, amenities, or activities to make your stay at your Tahoe City vacation rental a memorable one. In the warmer months when snow is in short supply, vacationers flock to the shores of Lake Tahoe for every water activity imaginable.

Whether on snow or water, Tahoe City has it all

Snow is king in Tahoe City, with some of the country's best skiing and snowboarding on your doorstep. Within 20 minutes of leaving your Tahoe City vacation rental, you can be blazing down the slopes of top ski resorts like Squaw Valley or Alpine Meadows. Those who are less athletically inclined are also in luck, because the après-ski options are just as enticing, only without the cold and slush. The summer sunlight has outdoor enthusiasts trading in their snow skis for water skis, with Lake Tahoe offering everything from boating to outdoor beachfront concerts in the warmer months.
