Considering a getaway to Lake Tahoe? From cozy mountain cabins to cute contemporary condos, check out these amazing Lake Tahoe Airbnbs for your alpine lake getaway!

Lake Tahoe, with its crystal clear blue-green waters, straddles the border of California and Nevada. It is an enormous lake, with several communities from which to pick the perfect base for your Lake Tahoe vacation. It is also one of the prettiest lakes in California!

South Lake Tahoe has a vibrant feel, with lots of restaurants, bars, shopping, and casinos. It also features beaches, hiking trails, and the Heavenly Mountain ski area. The other shores tend to be quieter, with more of a mountain lake getaway feel, but you will find restaurants and stores no matter which shore you pick for your base.

A cozy cabin is the perfect base in Lake Tahoe on a winter break!
