Recent Tahoe City vacation rental reviews

The house is beautiful, clean, and well located. Our kids loved hanging out in the loft where there is a tv and lots of games while the grown ups relaxed in the living room below. The kitchen is very well stocked and there were lots of extra blankets to keep everyone warm at night. We did run into a few issues that could have been improved with better information up front. First, the driveway was plowed but the walkway from the driveway to the door needed to be shoveled (this took about 20 min through several feet of snow, luckily a shovel was left out on the driveway). This would have been understandable if it was actively snowing but it hadn't snowed in a couple of days. A couple of hours later, someone did show up to shovel the snow so I'm guessing it was just a timing issue. Also the hot water heater was set to low and the thermostat was on vacation mode so both had to be turned on (took some work on the thermostat settings). This took us a couple of hours to realize since it wasn't in the arrival instructions so I recommend checking both on arrival to save some frustration.

We loved the home entirely, definitely a few things that can be better (stove did not work, needs more towels and kitchen supplies / kid friendly cups etc... lighter/matches!) BUT I am still giving 5 stars because the property manager Jake and Vacasa were speedy to assist us, and the property was just 10/10 gorgeous and close to everything. Perfect for our family, super safe and upgraded feel! See you soon Tahoe City!

This was a very comfortable house for my family (6 adults and 2 young kids). We appreciated having the hot tub and garage to park in as it snowed several feet during our stay. There was a little room for improvement though. There were a few things lacking in the kitchen, the dishwasher was broken, and one of the 3 showers had a handle that made it unusable during our stay. The house was very close to cross country skiing and snowshoe trails and not too far to drive to restaurants or grocery stores. We enjoyed our stay.

Where is Tahoe City?

Sitting on the shores of Lake Tahoe, this historic town is easily accessible via CA 89 off of Interstate 80. Tahoe City lodging is often located in quiet neighborhoods close to the California ski attractions and outdoor activities that you visit the lake for.

Tahoe City attractions

Lake Tahoe beaches are beautiful! In the summer, Tahoe City Commons offers live music. To the north at Carnelian Bay, you’ll find the dog-friendly Patton Beach. Into boating? You can launch it over at the free Coast Guard boat launch between Tahoe City and Dollar Point. If you're more of a river person, the Truckee River, with its fishing, rafting, kayaking, and more, is less than a mile away.

Other than the pristine blue waters of Lake Tahoe, the area is heavily visited for its ski resorts. Our Tahoe City vacation rentals are within five to 20 miles from the best resorts in California. Perhaps the most popular are Alpine Meadows and Squaw Valley in Olympic Valley, named for being the site of the 1960 Winter Games.

Enjoy a meal in one of Tahoe City's 32 eateries, or take an evening cruise on the lake. This area hosts a number of seasonal festivals. Kick off summer at the annual Heart and Solstice Festival in June. July beckons yogis to the Wanderlust Festival. Celebrate Oktoberfest at the Tahoe City Harvest Festival. Sand, snow, or surf, Tahoe City is a great place to stay any time of year!
