If you haven’t started planning your winter break escape with your family, now is a great time to start. Earlier this year, we surveyed 1,000 travelers to find the best vacation spots in the United States. Our results showed that Lake Tahoe won in spades as the top destination for outdoor activities during any time of year.

As the snow starts to fall, Tahoe seemingly transforms into a magical winter wonderland. To experience Tahoe’s beauty in the winter, take a look at these four cabins allowing you to appreciate the glistening blue body of water, where the whole family can enjoy some quality time.

  1. Lakeside 3 Bedroom With Patio & Deck

    Looking for lake access on the north side of Tahoe? Check out this town home right along Kings Beach! This property sleeps up to seven people with gorgeous lake views.


    One of the great things about this home is that the common areas are all connected, with no enclosures obstructing your view. You can be cooking on the island stove top while conversing with your family and friends in the living room. Your view of the lake all the way from the kitchen isn’t too shabby either.


    When you want to spend some time outdoors, there’s a patio on the first floor and a deck on the second floor. The deck even has a gas grill and heater, so you can still make use of the outdoor amenities when it’s cold outside.


  2. Dog-Friendly Romantic Log Cabin

    Pet-friendly vacation rentals are always in demand. For anyone traveling to Tahoe with a furry family member, we’ve found the perfect place for you in Tahoe City, on the west edge of the lake.


    This lodge has three bedrooms and sleeps eight guests comfortably. If you’re looking to invite more than eight people, you can also contact the owner about booking the cabin that sleeps ten people next door. Lake Tahoe slumber party for 18? We want in.


    The fenced backyard features an outdoor dining area, a hot tub, and patio seating. Let your pup run free while you relax in the spa, or sit around with hot chocolate and s’mores.


  3. Luxury 5 Bedroom Family Style Home

    If you want to accommodate one big family under one roof, check out this incredible property that sleeps fifteen people on the Nevada side. There’s plenty of exciting amenities in this home that make it a wonderful vacation destination.


    Starting off with the indoor spa, this room dedicated to relaxation is fully equipped with a hot tub and wooden infrared sauna. The wall of windows on one end allows the natural light to pour in during the day. When it starts to snow, you can peacefully watch from the heated jacuzzi.


    Once you’ve made use of the private spa, it’s time to get cozy in the home theater! Lazy boy seats, surround sound, and a projector sounds like the ideal set up for a laid-back weekend. Bust out the popcorn and now your only problem is, what does everyone want to watch?


  4. Cozy Classic A-Frame Cabin

    For a unique homestay in North Lake Tahoe, why not settle into this adorable “A frame” cabin? It’s located in the small community of Kings Beach, about a mile away from the lake, and within close proximity to a handful of ski resorts and casinos.


    The interior architecture of this home adds more flavor to your Tahoe experience, with triangular floor to ceiling windows, leading to a deck facing south west — perfect for catching a colorful Lake Tahoe sunset!


    A total of three bedrooms sleep six people comfortably, which is great for an average-sized family. Each room is a constant reminder that you’re living the cabin life, so take full advantage and enjoy your winter getaway.


Whether you want to stay in North Lake Tahoe or South Lake Tahoe, we can help you find the right vacation rental for your entire family.
