A vacation in South Lake Tahoe is a great idea any time of the year. Camp and fish in the summer; ski and get cozy by a vacation cabin fireplace in the fall and winter. In fact, Lake Tahoe makes an idyllic ski location when the snow lies thick on Heavenly Mountain. South Lake Tahoe vacation cabin rentals are a smart way to ensure your skiing holiday goes smoothly.

Finding a cabin around Tahoe is easy, but you have to know what you’re looking for and plan ahead. Here are couple of the best options available for South Lake Tahoe accommodations.

    The lakefront cabin is a classic place to stay when you’re in Tahoe. In summer and winter, you’ll have stunning views and easy access to nearby ski resorts, restaurants and other amenities. Renting directly on the waterfront lets you make the most of Tahoe’s beauty.

    Are you bringing the family out for a skiing vacation? You’ll need some extra space and could benefit from the use of a full kitchen. Check out family home vacation rentals in South Lake Tahoe so you can put the kids in their own bedrooms, cook breakfast for everyone and relax next to a toasty fireplace after a long day on the slopes.

  3. Marina Resort

    This resort option generally makes more sense in the summer months when you have access to water toys like jet-skis and kayaks. However, you can still gain some benefits by booking this kind of accommodation in the winter. You still get the view, plus the community feeling, adjacent restaurants, and access to special events.

  4. All-inclusive Resort

    An all-inclusive resort is perfect for vacationers who don’t want to worry about where their next meal is going to be — or who think about food and drink expenses. All you have to do is claim your room and put down your bags, then you’ve got everything already taken care of. Head off to the mountains for some skiing or snowboarding and come back to the resort any time for snacks, meals, lounging or sleep. Then, get right back at it the next day.
