Family-Friendly Tahoe: 5 Airbnb Spots In South Lake Tahoe, California

Clara
Updated Oct 23, 2016

Explore and dig in like there’s no tomorrow to all that South Lake Tahoe has to offer. Natural scenery that is ludicrously beautiful is matched with an energetic nightlife that never sleeps. Visit world-class casinos with big name entertainment, and luxury restaurants and shops that will leave you wanting more. People in Lake Tahoe embrace and welcome the cold chilly nights during winter by sledding, snowmobiling, or simply just sliding around the ice on some skates. Yes, it can be a paradise for you and your significant other, but family-friendly is Lake Tahoe’s middle name. Whether it is a family of three or a family of eight, Lake Tahoe welcomes you with open arms. So, grab your suitcases (including your kid’s favourite teddy), relax, and have a good stay with these five family-friendly Airbnb picks:

1. Best of both worlds: Round House (349 USD)

With its unique architecture and aesthetic appeal, the Round House is a neighbourhood landmark minutes away from Heavenly’s ski resorts and many casinos, providing the best of both worlds and an ideal home for many vacationers.
