Why Choose A Tahoe Vacation Rental Over A Tahoe Hotel 

Vacation rentals have begun to gain steam and attention as more and more guests begin to take advantage of the added space, amenities, and comfort that comes with booking a private home or condo! Compared to the traditional hotel experience, vacation rentals allow guests to experience the home-away-from-home feeling that comes with being in a spacious property.

Find out what you can expect when you book a Tahoe vacation rental!

Benefits of Booking a Tahoe Vacation Rental

When you book a Tahoe vacation rental, you can expect to have the added space and amenities that come with living rooms and kitchens right in your rental! Traveling with the whole family or a group of friends? Booking a vacation rental home means saving money on multiple hotel rooms and having the luxury of everyone staying in the same place! Spend quality time cozying up in a living room while still having the bedroom space needed for everyone to rest and relax.

Having a kitchen in your vacation rental means that you can enjoy home-cooked meals and save money on eating out during your stay. Have après ski snacks at home following a day on the slopes or whip up breakfast in the kitchen before heading out to explore Tahoe’s trail- or lake-bound summer activities.

Vacation Rental Amenities

Other than having the added benefits of a living room and kitchen, vacation rentals can feature added amenities such as being pet-friendly or having a private hot tub! Book a pet-friendly rental to enjoy Tahoe’s parks and hiking trails with your pup. Or opt for a ski-in ski-out property that allows you to experience the best of skiing in Tahoe with views of the slopes or a location just steps away from the gondola. After a day on the slopes or the hiking trails, enjoy a soak in a private hot tub with friends and family! With amenities like these, you’re sure to feel right at home!

What to Bring & What is Provided with a Tahoe Vacation Rental

Before you pack your bags and start your trek to Tahoe, it’s important to know what will be waiting for you in your vacation rental! You won't need to bring along linens or towels as those will all be provided for you. Also, Tahoe Rental Company rentals come stocked with a starter supply of the following items:

  • Shampoo
  • Conditioner
  • Liquid body wash
  • Liquid hand soap
  • Hand lotion
  • Laundry detergent
  • Fabric softener
  • Paper towels
  • Kleenex
  • Toilet paper
  • Trash bags
  • Dish soap
  • Dishwasher detergent

Of course, a trip to the grocery store may still be required to stock your kitchen with groceries, snacks, spices, and more depending on how long your stay is. However, you will at least have the basics to get started! All you really need to pack is your ski gear or hiking boots, depending on which season you decide to book a trip to Tahoe!
