Head waterside to a townhome in the quiet community of Sierra Shores. Grab house to the south so you can cozy up to the casinos and area nightlife at the drop of a hat. Or bring your boat to the Tahoe Keys area for convenient access to the marina. The truth is, no matter where you choose to make camp during your time here, the homes on either side of you will be almost as unique as the one you’re staying in.

What You Should Know

Sound Advice ~ To Make Your Stay Quite Nice

  • California residents have been escaping to this diverse paradise for a long time now, as it is just a quick drive from the San Francisco Bay area.
  • Out of towners can easily fly into Sacramento or Reno airports, just as long as you rent a car.
  • Because of a lack of public transportation, it can be tough to navigate the area without a car. There’s just so much to experience around the entire lake.
  • Bringing your own boat? Be sure to call ahead and talk to one of our vacation consultants about the best homes with private docking or easy access to public docks and launches.
  • Pack at least one item for all seasons as weather varies based on location.
  • If you plan on heading to high altitudes, adopt a proactive attitude. Drink a lot of water before and after, apply sunscreen often, and use caution with your alcohol consumption.
  • Housing here can be rather eclectic. So don’t be surprised if you have a quaint cabin on one side of your rental and giant mansion on the other. The great thing is, the occupants will probably be equally friendly.
