| 6 min read

Formed two 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.

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.
