Finding the Right Home Rental in Lake Tahoe
There are a few patterns to consider when looking for a Lake Tahoe home rental. You’ll pay more for the houses near the ski areas in the winter time no matter the size and you’ll always pay more for lakefront properties no matter what time of year. But if you can decide what you need (or want) and what you want to spend there are a multitude of choices for house vacation rentals in and around the beautiful lake.
High up on a hill, overlooking the western shores of Lake Tahoe sits an 8,000 square foot home visited by presidents, dignitaries and the merely wealthy. Built in the 1930s by a noted steel magnate, the house is now available for rent, ranging in price from $3,000 per night to $50,000 per month depending upon the season. It comes fully equipped with a full staff of cook, housekeeper, maid and butler, a choice of automobiles to use, a pool and down on the lake, the private boat dock with what can only be described as a “lake yacht” complete with a skipper who will gladly ride you to any point on the lake – all at no extra charge.
Or, if you prefer, stay in a beautiful, upscale neighborhood where the lawns are neatly mowed, the kids play safely outside on the sidewalks and the driveways all end with a basketball hoop hanging from the garage. Houses like this are plentiful in several areas around the lake and average in price from $300 per night to $1200 per week for three, four or even five bedrooms.
You can call any one of a number of local real estate agents to arrange a house vacation rental for you at a modest fee. Tell them exactly the type of home you’re looking to rent and they’ll will find it for you. If you’re the more adventurous type, you can get a bit more bang for your buck by researching the numerous websites on the internet. And, if you’ve got any familiarity with the area, you’ll likely find exactly what you want without much trouble.
