    Homewood: a gateway to Lake Tahoe

    The tiny community of Homewood lies along the western shores of Lake Tahoe, just a few miles south of Tahoe City. While there's not an awful lot to do in Homewood itself, it serves as the perfect base for exploring the country's 2nd deepest lake and the charming towns that dot its shoreline. If you score a Homewood vacation rental during summer, there are endless possibilities for outdoor activities, from simply splashing around in the cool waters to boating and paddle boarding. In winter, the flurries of snow offer opportunities for cross-country skiing and snowboarding.

    Year-round outdoor activity in Homewood

    If you've nabbed a Homewood vacation rental in summer, there's a staggering number of family-friendly activities on and around Lake Tahoe to get stuck into. For a little adventure, consider renting jet skis to race across the lake, or take to the skies on one of the parasailing trips. For something a little calmer, you can paddle around the lake on kayaks, or go hiking along the picturesque shoreline, perhaps spending a night under the stars on a family camp out. The winter snows bring in a whole new host of adventurous activities, including skiing and snowboarding in the nearby mountains.

    Homewood is a place steeped in history

    The area around your Homewood vacation rental has more to offer than just outdoor activities. The area is steeped in history, which is best discovered in one of the nearby museums. Sports fans should make a beeline for the Museum of Sierra Ski History and 1960 Winter Olympics up in Tahoe City, which houses an impressive collection of memorabilia, mementos and literature about the games. Alternatively, swing by Watson Cabin, which serves as one of the finest examples of early 20th-century architecture. You can complement your time on the lake at the Tahoe Maritime Museum, which chronicles the region's sea-going history.

    Homewood is a year-round treat

    The biggest influx of vacationers is during the summer months, when families escape the stuffy cities and descend upon Lake Tahoe's beaches. If you're lucky enough to have bagged a Homewood vacation between July and August, you can pretty much guarantee bright and sunny days. Winter sees a new set of thrill seeking adventurers, who tip up with their skis and snowboards. Between the 2 peak seasons is the sweet spot. March to May and September to November still sees warm weather, while the rental prices have dropped off along with the crowds.

    Spot the elusive mountain lion in Homewood

    If you're looking to spot wildlife, you've come to the right place. There's almost 300 recorded species that roam around the forests and shores of Lake Tahoe. If you're lucky, you might catch a glimpse of a Sierra red fox or mountain beaver. Though elusive, it's not unheard of to spot a black bear or solitary mountain lion, particularly in the nearby mountains. You can also keep your eyes peeled for golden-mantled ground squirrels, shy mule deer and porcupines, not to mention nocturnal raccoons, which have a reputation for raiding camps for food after dark.
