After a year filled with uncertainty and turmoil, we are all relieved the end of 2020 is growing ever closer, but before we kick the year to the curb, we still have some unfinished business. The holiday season is upon us, and if you are looking for something extra special to be thankful about this Thanksgiving, why not consider a Thanksgiving getaway to Tahoe? Offering delightfully chilly days, the occasional snowstorm, and some of the most breathtaking landscapes in the nation, the only thing that will make your seasonal journey even better will be a stay in one of our Tahoe Signature Properties holiday hideaways! This guide to the ultimate Thanksgiving extravaganza will ensure that you have more to be thankful for than ever before.

Designed for Family

Our Tahoe Signature Properties holiday escapes are designed to bring comfort and style to your entire family. Featuring spacious and cheerful kitchens filled with updated appliances, you will find yourself anxiously awaiting the opportunity to get in there and create your traditional turkey feast! Invite your children to join in the fun, letting them in on the secret recipes for their favorite dishes, preparing them for the day when you will permanently turn over the family chef title. The dining areas offer places to gather with your family, devouring the meal, talking excitedly, and making plans for when the jolly old elf in the big red suit arrives in the next few weeks. Your oldest has been asking when it is his turn to carve the bird, so why not add to the specialness of this family occasion by handing over the carving knife and guiding him through his first official foray into adulthood.

Cozy living rooms stay warm and welcoming with a fire crackling merrily in the fireplace and the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade marching by on the state-of-the-art television hanging high on the walls. Designed for multiple purposes, these spaces are where many memories will be made as you play board games with the kids, read the books you have had sitting on your nightstand for longer than you care to remember, and take unplanned naps awakening feeling rested and recharged. After the nap, a walk along the shores of the most beautiful lake in the world can be next on your agenda, but be sure to grab a jacket and maybe even some gloves; Thanksgiving temperatures can drop down into the 20s in Lake Tahoe!

Bedrooms with soft beds and neutral décor will not interrupt your night rhythms, allowing you to wake feeling refreshed every morning of your stay. Add romance to your stay by choosing one of our rentals with a private hot tub; tucked away on the deck while allowing you to feel as if you are one with nature, the Jacuzzi is just one more reason to be thankful you chose Tahoe Signature Properties for your Thanksgiving celebrations!

Not All Feasts Have to Be Made by Mom

Let’s face it, even in a world as modern as ours, moms still have to bear the brunt of holiday chores, and that includes creating the annual Thanksgiving feast! If you are the mom and find yourself thinking that maybe you deserve a break this year, especially after all the meals you have had to prepare during quarantine, we absolutely agree with you! And because places like the Kitchen Collab in Truckee and even Safeway in any of our North Shore towns will prepare the feast for you, there is no need to worry about your family going hungry; simply place your order according to the instructions on their websites and prepare to enjoy Thanksgiving on your terms!

In addition, while we do not have all the info yet, many restaurants in the area are planning on being open and serving feasts that will make your taste buds stand up and cheer! The best part about going out is knowing there will be absolutely no need to do any cleaning, but remember; the pandemic changed a lot and quite possibly many restaurants will be offering take-out turkey repasts (in addition to those we mentioned above), allowing you to eat from the comfort of your rental, should you choose!

Come Home to Tahoe Signature Properties

When 2020 began, none of us ever pictured what the months would bring but although there have been many changes in the world, one thing will never change: Our love for our families remained (and still remains) strong as we self-quarantined and social distanced and gathered our closest members even closer. Give yourselves something more to be thankful about when you choose Tahoe Signature Properties for a getaway that will definitely make you feel thankful. Contact us today!

Thanksgiving means travel for a lot of people. It’s a time to reconnect with family. Instead of debating who should go to whose house, why not settle on a place everyone can enjoy? A destination Thanksgiving in Lake Tahoe means new experiences for everyone and a chance to get away for the long weekend. The Lake Tahoe and Truckee area are actually ideal for celebrating Thanksgiving, offering the Norman Rockwell-like atmosphere that so many people crave for their holiday retreat.

The Chance of Snow

For much of California, winter can’t come fast enough—the people in Los Angeles grow tired of having to open up their windows at night to cool off, letting in the street noise. But in the mountains, temperatures drop as early as September. By November, you’ve got brisk afternoons and chilly nights that are perfect for hunkering under the covers or drinking the most rewarding hot chocolate of the year. It’s the perfect time for kids to stay in and play games with the family. In other words, it’s perfect for Thanksgiving.

For the more outdoorsy types, we also have good news: the snow capital of California is already embracing the slopes. Some ski resorts open in mid-November, so you can work off your Thanksgiving belly with some quality time on the slopes.

Enjoy the Small-Town Vibe

North Lake Tahoe and the Truckee area are the perfect places to get in touch with the small-town values that seem so critical during the holidays. Knowing (and loving) your neighbor and being close to family are all things that people in our small town understand. When you and your family stay in a small town, you’ll feel more together than ever before.

Day Trips

And perhaps the nicest part of Truckee is that it lets you enjoy the small-town atmosphere within reach of big cities. San Francisco is under 200 minutes away, and Sacramento is even closer. Why not enjoy Thanksgiving in Lake Tahoe in a rustic cabin, then head to some of America’s biggest cities for some serious Black Friday shopping?

Thanksgiving in a Tahoe Signature Property

If this sounds good to you already, then just imagine how good it’ll feel to drop your suitcases in your Truckee or North Tahoe getaway home and slump onto the couch after your travels, maybe opening a window first to enjoy the fresh mountain air. Thanksgiving is coming fast—call us at 530-562-4242 to set up your getaway today!

When looking for rentals in Lake Tahoe and Truckee, why not consider a Vacation Rental home or Condo? You certainly want to make the most of your trip to North Lake Tahoe&Truckee and choosing the best place to stay for your family is an important piece of the success of your trip. Hotels and Motels are expected to be crowded and offer limited amenities with little or no kitchen facilities.  Rather than stay at a hotel in Lake Tahoe, why not stay in a Lake Tahoe Rental house or condo for your trip.  Rental homes & condos offer more space, full kitchen amenities and all the comforts of home.  To view the Best Rentals in Lake Tahoe, or to Rent a Cabin in Lake Tahoe, visit Tahoe Signature Properties’ website at Or call Tahoe Signature Properties’ Vacation Rental Hotline at 530-562-4242.
