Lake Tahoe is a lake and world-class holiday destination that sit on the border between the states of California and Nevada. At Lake Tahoe vacation rentals you’ll have a wide variety of activities available all year round, from skiing and other water sport to yachting, hiking, mountain biking and fishing.
Lake Tahoe vacation accommodation would be perfect if you’d like a family ski holiday. Starting on the North Shore, there’s Alpine Meadows, regarded as an affordable option, boasting a wealth of runs to suit all levels of ability, and now equipped with high speed lifts. Also in the northern area is the large Homewood ski resort, which is set across two peaks, offering runs with spectacular vistas of the lake and surrounding peaks. It’s also one of the quieter ski destinations at Lake Tahoe.
At Lake Tahoe vacation rentals on the south shore there are yet more resorts. Heavenly is an upscale, family-oriented ski resort, covering one of the largest areas of any around Lake Tahoe. Such is the quality of slope and snow here, that it has played host to a number of World Cup ski events.
In the summer the landscape around Lake Tahoe self-catering accommodation becomes a paradise for outdoor recreation. You could come here for golf, fishing, horseback riding, climbing, mountain biking, water sports, nature spotting or just to make the most of the splendid beaches that line stretches of the lakeshore.
If you’d like to do something a little less energetic you could simply admire the fantastic upland scenery on a boat cruise. Meanwhile for grown ups there’s also gaming, thanks to the presence of a number of casinos on the lake’s south shore.
Reno is a city in Nevada, no more than 45 minutes by car from Lake Tahoe vacation accommodation on the north shore, and regarded as a prominent gambling destination. There are no fewer than ten major casinos here, while the desert landscapes around the city are ideal for mountain biking. In late August there’s the famous Burning Man Festival in nearby Black Rock City.
Lake Tahoe self-catering vacation rentals are found at high altitude, which makes for long, cold winters. Summers though are generally pleasantly warm from May to September, ideal for outdoor recreation.
Reno-Tahoe International Airport (RNO) is within an hour of Lake Tahoe vacation accommodation and is reachable from the UK by flying to Houston-Intercontinental (IAH) via Continental or British Airways from London-Heathrow (LHR), and connecting to a domestic flight with Continental Airlines.
