Wonderful Amenities for a Christmas Vacation
When you’re taking a Christmas vacation, especially to such a scenic winter landscape such as Lake Tahoe, you’re going to want it to feel like your very own home away from home—and when you stay with us, that’s exactly what you’ll get! Our Christmas vacation home rentals in Lake Tahoe come with fully equipped kitchens, meaning you’ll have plenty of space and appliances to make a batch of Christmas cookies with the kids, or to whip up your own Christmas feast in the comfort of your vacation home. The architecture and décor are unique to each property, but often feature cozy cabin-like touches such as dark hardwood floors, wood-rafted ceilings, shiny pine banisters, as well as soft blankets and pillows for cuddling up at night. Living areas can feature high pointed windows that bathe the area in natural light or are perfect for stargazing at night with the lights off.
A Dash of Christmas Luxury
Each of our properties have different types of amenities, but no matter the size, you’re sure to find a touch of luxury, whether it’s professional decorating, vaulted A-fame ceilings, sleek wood paneling, granite countertops, flat-screen televisions, seclusion, space, or lake views! Many of our Lake Tahoe vacation homes for rent feature fireplaces perfect for warming up at night with a steaming cup of hot cocoa and listen to some Christmas tunes or share stories from your day of adventuring Lake Tahoe’s winter wonderland. You might even find a property with a shared or private hot tub for relaxing in the steaming water after a long day of zipping down the mountainside or hiking snow-covered trails. Some of our Christmas rentals even feature spa-like bathrooms with soaking tubs, where you can unwind in the same way in the warmth of your vacation home! You won’t have to worry about most of the basics like towels, and many of our homes offer washers and dryers—great after exploring outside all day! And of course, our Christmas rentals come in a variety of sizes, so whether it’s a small family getaway or a lively big trip with family and friends, we have something waiting for you!

Local Dining on Christmas
If you don’t want to cook on Christmas, quite a few local eateries open their doors for Christmas dinner.

Have a Winter Adventure
With such beautiful wintery landscapes around us and our Lake Tahoe vacation homes for rent, you’d remiss if you didn’t take the chance to get out and do some exploring. Go on a snowshoe hike, leaving plenty of time to get back inside before sunset. Take some food and water with you.
Or go ice skating at the Truckee Ice Rink at 10500 Brockway Road, about a half mile south from downtown Truckee. The ice rink offers public skating, private lessons, rentals, and more! And don’t forget winter classics such as building a snowperson, having snowball fights, and making snow angels.
