Formed 2 million years ago, the clear waters of Lake Tahoe seem to glimmer under the warm rays of the midday sun. The largest alpine lake in North America didn’t get its reputation for anything - home to a myriad of outdoor activities, get closer to Mother Nature by hopping onto a biking trail or kayaking down the shimmering tides. Besides all the outdoor activities available, this is a great location for romantic getaways as well as cabin retreats.
You may get seasick along the way, but the beautiful views are something you definitely won’t get sick of! To get the most out of your holiday, here are the best Airbnbs in Lake Tahoe.
Standing out from the surrounding viridian-green forests is this oceanic blue Airbnb studio cabin with a cosy interior perfect for the journeying couple. If you’re tired after a long drive up here, take a short afternoon siesta in the queen-sized sleeper lined with soft patchwork quilt and a matching pillow set. Spend the freezing winter evenings indoors - there’s plenty of space for cuddles on the long sofa! Fix yourselves a simple dinner in the kitchen equipped with basic necessities.
