The city of Stateline is on the southeast corner of the beautiful blue waters of Lake Tahoe. The lake marks the border between California and the gaming state of Nevada. Stateline is just on the Nevada side, making it possible for casinos to operate.
Stateline is beautifully situated overlooking Lake Tahoe and surrounded by mountain scenery which is snow-covered for much of the year. There are many sandy beaches nearby for swimming and sunbathing. Boats of all kinds can be hired on the 22-mile long lake including kayaks and dinghies. Hiking trails such as the Tahoe Rim Trail cover the mountains and are a wonderful way to access the tranquil peace above the town. Ski lifts run during the summer to give walkers a lift to the high plateau. In winter the area is a winter sports paradise with Alpine and cross country skiing, snowmobiling and snowshoeing everywhere and Stateline apartments are in high demand. Scenic drives and shopping can be enjoyed from along with gambling, slot machines and live shows at the Vegas-style casinos.
A drive around Lake Tahoe from your Stateline holiday rental will take in the small harbours and waterfront communities of Incline Village, Kings Beach, Carnelian Bay and Tahoe City. Look out for the landmark Chapel at Lake Tahoe which is a popular place for marriages. Logan Shoals Vista Point at Zephyr Cove is a great place to stop for a picnic and Sugar Pine Point State Park is home to the grand Hellman Ehrman Mansion. You can also take a tour of Vikingsholm Castle, a 38-room mansion overlooking Emerald Bay. Part of the estate includes Fanette Island, the only island on Lake Tahoe. Nearby, Eagle Falls is a popular place to hike to.
Visitors staying in Stateline holiday apartments should expect hot dry summers with plenty of sunshine, and cold snowy winters.

Temperatures drop to well below freezing from November to April, particularly overnight, with heavy snowfall.
