Lake Tahoe Villa Rentals
Lake Tahoe is a major tourist attraction in both Nevada and California. It is home to a number of ski resorts, summer outdoor recreation, and tourist attractions. Mountain and lake scenery from your Lake Tahoe vacation rental can be quite amazing throughout the year.
Explore all that Lake Tahoe has to offer. Natural scenery that borders on the over the top beautiful, coupled with nightlife that doesn’t quit. From your Lake Tahoe villa go to the world class casinos with big name entertainment, luxury spas and top-notch restaurants.
Summer promises numerous hiking and mountain biking trails around the lake. They range widely in length, difficulty and popularity. One of the most famous of Tahoe's trails is the Tahoe Rim Trail, a 165-mile trail that circumnavigates the lake. After hiking and biking, head to the beaches with restaurants, marinas and water toys. There are beaches with live music that beg for a sunset BBQ and secluded ones that whisper quiet relaxation in the sun.
For outdoor lovers, enjoy the views of spectacular Lake Tahoe and the Sierra Nevada’s. Speaking of views, you can also get a bird’s eye view from a paddlewheel boat or a gondola car. Navigate one of the Epic Adventure ropes courses or zoom down a zip line.
You may have to go home to rest but come back for winter. Rest assured that even in winter Lake Tahoe doesn’t roll up the sidewalks at sundown. Ski and ride the real-deal big mountains like Heavenly Mountain Resort, Kirkwood Resort and Sierra-at-Tahoe, then check out how Lake Tahoe interprets après ski. Head back to your Lake Tahoe cabin to relax after a long and fun day. On your winter trip, don’t forget to squeeze in sledding, sleigh rides, snowshoeing or snowmobiling.
Lake Tahoe never freezes because the huge volume of lake water is always in motion. Each winter, the cold water on the surface sinks while warm water rises from the deep. Some protected inlets like Emerald Bay have been covered with a layer of ice at times.
This breathtakingly blue lake is so clear that in some places objects can be seen to depths of 75 feet.The reason the lake is so blue is that the thin, clear mountain air allows the lake's pure, crystalline water to reflect the blue sky above. The lake can also appear red during sunsets or gray-black during storms.
