Think a visit to Lake Tahoe is only appropriate during ski season or the summer months? Think again.
As summer winds down to a close and fall arrives, one of the best times to visit Lake Tahoe is now. Why?
Autumn in Tahoe takes on the pace that people think of as vacation speed – traffic thins, prices fall, and the lake remains warm.
These ingredients combine to offer visitors a chance to get in a fall vacation before the snow flies at a substantial discount from summer high-season prices, all while experiencing Tahoe in one of its most laid back and breathtaking seasons.
It’s not too difficult waking up to this: Golden fall colors border Tahoe trails, the lake turns to glass, and crisp mornings give way to warm fall days. And swimming in the Lake doesn’t require a wet suit – it’s still warm!
North Lake Tahoe offers a variety of lodging that fits all styles of vacationers, including family-friendly cabins and lodging in Tahoe Vista and Kings Beach.
Choices include a private, lakefront cabin at the Franciscan Lakeside Lodge in Tahoe Vista, where prices fall be as much as $120 on the first day of October. There are also reduced prices at the nearby Tahoe Sands Resort and Red Wolf Lakeside Lodge.
Another right-on-the-Lake location is at family-owned Ferrari’s Crown Resort, which offers lakefront lodging on Kings Beach at a hotel that has been family-owned and operated since the 1950s.
If one wants luxury accommodations, that’s available as well. The Ritz-Carlton Lake Tahoe, the Hyatt Regency in Incline Village, the Resort at Squaw Creek, Northstar California, or a lakefront suite at the West Shore Café are among the choices.
The Ritz-Carlton Lake Tahoe’s “Discover With You” deal offers a $100 hotel credit, free breakfast and complimentary S’mores with a room booking. The Resort at Squaw Creek offers a free night of lodging when you stay three nights or more. And the Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe’s popular Lakeside Cottages and West Shore Café drop their rates for fall season bookings.
Couples can find quiet bed and breakfasts deep on the West Shore. Visitors with a hankering for late-night music can book a room at one of Crystal Bay’s casinos to catch a night of live music and enjoy some gambling. And vacation rentals around Tahoe City can be found for half price throughout the fall.
These deals allow vacationers to take a break from peak summer lodging prices and the middle-of-summer crowds summer, and relax during Lake Tahoe’s under-rated “shoulder season.”
