Looking for paradise? Then look no further than South Lake Tahoe, which is the perfect oasis for you if you are a water loving outdoor enthusiast. With the lake’s crystal waters, forested pines and snow-covered mountain peaks, there is an abundance of things to do in this panoramic playground. The refreshing air and open space makes you feel happy – such a nice change from city congestion. And making reservations for your South Lake Tahoe summer vacation is easy and the ideal way to enjoy these surroundings in a vacation rental property along the water, in the marina or tucked into the forest yet close to all the activities.
Nobody has to be sold on wanting to experience the beautiful and fun water of Lake Tahoe. In 2012, Lake Tahoe won the “Best Lake in America” title: “Lake Tahoe has been named the “Best Lake in America,” according to results of a summer 2012 reader’s poll released by USA Today. Various magazine editors narrowed national nominations to the top 16; readers weighed in, and the largest and most popular alpine lake in North America took home top honors by garnering more than 5,000 votes via Facebook and Twitter.”
So, to make your vacation special, you’ll want a rental home that is as nice as your own home, or even a step up. Lake Tahoe was built with the idea that there are some people who like to stay in hotels, but there are others who want different kinds of vacation lodging. And fortunately for those folks, situated all through this breathtaking area there are many varieties of vacation homes and condos for rent, from quality-cozy to jaw-dropping luxurious.
If you want to “try on” some top-quality lakeside lodging, there is the Tahoe Keys, which is a marina with every house on the water in a bay, many with boat docks so you can bring your boat and pull it right up to the private dock. You’ll find that the home rentals in South Lake Tahoe come complete with fully-stocked kitchens with all the traditional appliances. Many have added gourmet kitchens, which is especially nice if your family is large and you want to have home cooked meals or parties. The living rooms have varieties of “entertainment centers” with TVs, DVD players, stereos and plenty of room so everyone in your group can spread out and not feel cramped. Many even have bonus rooms with game tables such as foos ball, ping pong or billiards. Of course a vacation wouldn’t be a vacation without a hot tub. And if you’re close to the lake or right on the beach, you’ll have a great day relaxing in the sun of South Lake Tahoe.
But if you believe that there are different strokes for different folks, then staying in a rustic cabin Lake Tahoe style may sound appealing to you where you can find some pretty fine examples of what life is like living beneath the firs and pines. Just moments from the city are the forests that line the perimeters of the lake, and a place away from the activities means you’ll hear the birds chirp and frogs croak at night. So if this is your idea of truly getting away from it all, some of the areas you might want to consider are the neighborhoods of Meyers or Kingsbury.
And what if you want something on the swanky side and are leaning toward a more high-end luxury property. Some travelers who only travel and stay in a “Ritz” property love the beach front homes and other vacation homes that have private indoor swimming pools. These are gorgeous properties are close to all the activities but just far enough to have some privacy. Many are right in South Lake Tahoe, nearby Zephyr Cove or just on the Nevada side of South Lake Tahoe in Stateline. Often these luxury vacation rentals are large enough for the entire family, grandma and the rest, to stay. And an extended family trip, groups of friends, or even a couple of families jointly off to the lake to share a vacation home is the new “in” thing.
As far as things to do – the “Lake of the Sky” offers plenty of hiking, biking, waterskiing, jet skiing, sailing, paddle boarding, fishing, kayaking and much more during the summer months. And if you love concerts, Harrah’s and Harvey’s Hotels (on the Nevada side of Tahoe) run a summer concert season with headline entertainment packed with amazing groups including Jefferson Starship, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Vanilla Ice, The Steve Miller Band, Tim McGraw, Rascal Flatts, Brad Paisley and The Dave Matthew’s Band.
South Lake vacation rentals generally are placed around stunning Lake Tahoe so you can experience the most relaxing and convenient vacation possible. Whether you are visiting in the summer for the water activities and jumping nightlife, or decide to come up for the winter ski and snowboarding season at the three different resorts, you can find the perfect home or condo for you that makes it easy to take advantage of everything South Lake Tahoe offers to its visitors.
