It’s a new season the Lake Tahoe community is eager to usher in. After a devastating, fiery summer, many welcome the collective quiet of fall.
With a grateful heart I breath in the crisp mountain air, as the last of the leaves float down gently beneath a piercing blue sky.
While the town rests in the calm of the shoulder season, there’s no mistaking the buzz of energy over what the future might hold. Indeed, a spark of hope for a bustling, wet winter season.
The time has come. Lake Tahoe is back.
Putting pen to paper, the events calendar in South Tahoe is jam packed (my personal favorites include Santa is Skiing into Town and the Tahoe South Ferris Wheel). And of course, New Year’s Eve needs no introduction. When Mother Nature unleashes that gorgeous fresh powder, it’s simply magic.
But as with any grand vacation with a terrific to-do list, where you stay matters.
Here are some fantastic properties that strike the perfect balance between opulence and the exquisite mountain elements of South Lake Tahoe.
