Founded in 1864 as a result of the California gold rush, Tahoe City has always been a resort town for seekers of thrill and relaxation alike. To this day, Tahoe City vacation rentals are as desirable as discovering a shiny gold nugget.
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.
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!
