Situated along the state line between California and Nevada, Lake Tahoe is a large freshwater lake that is well-known for the clarity of its waters and the beautiful panoramic views of its surrounding mountains. As one might expect, it is a major tourist attraction and is filled with many restaurants, ski and golf resorts, and casinos. South Lake Tahoe, which is located on the southern side of the lake, in California, is undoubtedly an adrenaline junkie’s heaven. There is much to do here throughout the four seasons, such as skiing, water sports, and hiking in the mountains. If you have a pet and are bringing them along on your next trip to South Lake Tahoe, here are the best pet-friendly Vrbo accommodations you can choose from, during your stay.

1. Comfortable cabin with beautiful mountain views (from USD 266)

This secluded cabin, which has scenic mountain views, is the perfect vacation home for all seasons and is comfortable for a small family of five. There are two bedrooms that come with a queen-sized bed and two twin beds. A fully equipped kitchen is also available for your use, but you should consider using the gas grill on the patio outside, while admiring the beautiful views of nature. Do contact the owner in advance if you are planning to bring more than one dog, as additional fees will apply.

Amenities & Room:
The kitchen was very comfortably stocked with everything needed for our large family group
we also found the sliding door to the master bathroom was off its raillings so that did'nt shut
I only found out after a few uncomfortable nights and I looked under the bed to find all of the metal struts had snapped giving the bed no support in the middle
they are just happy to take your money and not really bothered about making a lasting impression
There had been street work and we discovered that they had cut through the internet cable at the front of the house
Cleanliness:
The house was lovely and very well appointed
Host:
We arrived at the property and all seemed well enough
The Lake House appears to have been very recently updated and everything worked very well other than a minor problem with WIFI connectivity which was quickly resolved
We had a great time and none of us wanted the week to end
I have tried to contact the property mananging team and have had no response which is really dissapointing
We had a family reunion and among all the activities the we did the house made it very smooth and convenient but specially we felt like home Very pleasant and comfortable Thanks
Location:
Lovely place to stay Close to everything
it was adorable newly updated and the location is perfect
but we were given the job of chasing up the cable company and arranging for someone to come out to fix it Not really what you want on your first day of vacation

7. Relaxing vacation home with a hot tub

This accommodation, which is ideal for a party of six to eight guests, may be located within a quiet and forested neighborhood, but it has all the makings of a home away from home. There is a spacious living room, three bedrooms with one king-sized bed and two queen-sized beds, and one shared bathroom. Probably the best part of the house is the hot tub on the back porch, which is most ideal during the cold winter. If you are driving, the owner recommends dining at the Riva Grill, just a mile (1.5 km) away from the vacation home.

The bathroom is a little outdated but the rest of the house is great and my dog loved running around the backyard
