Lake Tahoe sits right on the border of California and Nevada and is a sparkling spectrum of cerulean to emerald and every shade in between. Besides being one of the USA’s highest-elevated lakes, it’s also the country’s second-deepest one. Needless to say, its shoreline is spellbinding, right from the busy south shore and the rugged west one to the serene north shore and the remote east one. With almost three-fourths of sun-kissed days annually, Lake Tahoe makes for a round-the-year destination. And what could be better than staying right by the lake? Here are the top lakefront rentals near Lake Tahoe, United States.

There’s nothing like living in a gated community, especially when you’re on vacation. Add to that a lakefront condo right on Lake Tahoe and it’s ticking all the right boxes. It lies close to town, which is perfect for picking up groceries and such. Surrounded by Chinquapin trees, this one-bedroom condo features all modern creature comforts, including a full kitchen. That said, the outdoors are the highlight here. Almost a mile of lake shoreline is right out front, which can be admired from the fabulous patio with comfy seating. End a wonderful day by grilling on the barbeque while enjoying striking views of the Australian sunset.

There’s no place better to stay in Southern Lake Tahoe than this lovely two-bedroom lakefront retreat. Sitting at the end of a peaceful and private cul-de-sac sits right on the edge of the water and offers unobstructed views of Lake Tahoe. As you enter the house, a striking river rock fireplace is the focal point of the living/kitchen area. The bedrooms are comfy, complete with ensuite bathrooms. Everywhere you look, you can see the lake and the mountains. On sun-kissed days, enjoy a cuppa or a glass of wine on the patio.

8. Four-bedroom lakefront paradise
Soak in the boundless serenity staying at this villa-style west shore lakefront rental. While it lies away from the highway, it’s close enough to ride a bike into town too. That said, its the dazzling Tahoe views from every room that is the standout here. There are four bedrooms, of which the master enjoys the best view. They feature plush beds, TVs, and ensuite bathrooms. The master even has a terrace with once-in-a-lifetime views of the lake. Downstairs, the living room with the fireplace is just the place to cozy up with stellar lake views. With a full kitchen with a marble island, every minute of the day is mealtime!
If you want complete privacy, combined with amenities during your Lake Tahoe vacation, then this wonderful two-story 1960s townhouse is perfect. This western Lake Tahoe home is the epitome of Tahoe living. So, this house has everything from bedrooms, a living room, and a dining room to a phenomenal deck. The patio is the perfect place to enjoy grilling at the barbeque while sitting on the comfy seating and enjoying phenomenal views of the pier and the lake. During summers, you can enjoy swimming in the large outdoor pool or even go fishing or boating on the lake. Plus, you’ll love the fact that you can enjoy phenomenal lake views from every room.
