5 Reasons to Rent a Vacation Home in Lake Tahoe Over a Hotel Room

Visiting Lake Tahoe is fun, exciting, and relaxing. From kayaking and paddling boarding on El Dorado Beach to skiing at the Heavenly Mountain Resort, lots of enjoyable activities and attractions await. If you are planning a visit, consider making your stay extra-special by booking a vacation home rental.

With so many wonderful vacation home rentals in Lake Tahoe, it is easy to understand the rising popularity of this trend. Hotels can be expensive and limited in the options that they provide and the hassle of finding something that is suitable can have you feeling like you need a vacation after the vacation!

Still not convinced? Here are five reasons to book a vacation home over a hotel room on your next trip to Lake Tahoe.


The number one determining factor of whether or not to go on vacation is cost. The high cost of one hotel room, let alone the expense of multiple rooms for a large group or family, can steer people away from traveling. Why spend money on a small hotel room when for the same price or cheaper, you can enjoy the privacy and spaciousness of a fully-furnished home?


Vacation is a time for relaxing and enjoying, for putting your feet up and living in the moment. With the average hotel room size being 325 square feet, this can be hard to achieve in such limited space. As a result, many people choose to book a vacation home instead of a hotel room. The average vacation home rental is a 2,000 square feet and provides household comforts such as a kitchen and living room as well as amenities like a deck or backyard.


Imagine the nightmare of arriving at your hotel room ready for some rest only to be interrupted by foot stomping, shouting, and other such noise from fellow hotel guests. Or the bother of having to put on a robe and slippers to walk down the hallway to get ice. How frustrating to pay so much money to be living among strangers! Renting a vacation home, on the other hand, offers the privacy and tranquility that a busy hotel does not.


Traveling with kids? Grandparents? Want a place with a fireplace or a pool table? Or maybe a vacation home close to the beach or ski trail? It may be quite difficult to find a hotel that fits just one of these requirements, let alone all of them. The beauty of vacation home rentals is being able to customize the home away from home that’s perfect for you.


Dining out in Lake Tahoe is not for everyone, especially multiple nights in a row. Whether due to dietary or budget restrictions, the ability to cook on vacation is very important to many travelers. Hotels rooms may offer a small fridge or a coffeemaker but few provide access to a fully furnished kitchen. Vacation home rentals offer the convenience of a home kitchen with access to a stove, fully sized refrigerator, cookware and flatware. Many vacation homes also have lovely dining room and outdoor spaces in which to enjoy meals.
