Renting a vacation home in Lake Tahoe vs. booking a hotel

If you are thinking of booking a trip to Lake Tahoe, you will find no shortage of places to stay. From casinos to boutique hotels to vacation rentals of all shapes and sizes, you may find yourself overwhelmed by all the options. Really, you shouldn’t need a vacation after trying to book your vacation, but sometimes it may feel that way. If you are on the fence with whether to book a hotel room or vacation home in Lake Tahoe, read below for some of the perks that come with choosing a vacation rental.

More bang for your buck

When picking a vacation home over a hotel room in the United States, you are getting more square footage and typically at a cheaper rate than a night stay in a hotel or casino. After all, the average size of a hotel room is 400 sqft with an average cost of $118.  A condo that sleeps 6 is on average 3 times the size of a hotel room and can be snagged for roughly $100 a night.

You save money on food

When you rent a vacation home, you have access to a full sized kitchen with all the tools and supplies to whip up a culinary delight. Of course while on vacation, you will want to eat out for a meal or two, but if you are feeding a large crew, especially after a busy day on the slopes or the hiking trail, that kitchen will save hundreds of dollars potentially spent on eating out. We read one report that states the average cost of eating out per person while on vacation in the U.S. is $30. We feel that after tax and tip, it is most likely a bit more than that  for Lake Tahoe, but if you add up $30 for say 3 people-that is $90 a day just on food. After multiple days, you are looking at a big chunk of moola that could be otherwise saved or spent on lift tickets, boat cruises or souvenir shopping. Let us also factor in that if you have any food allergies in the group, you can rest assured when cooking at home that there will be no last minute trips to the emergency room or doctor’s office.

Laundry Services are free

Spills happen, and when you only have a limited amount of your wardrobe at your disposal, it is nice to be able to wash clothing in a timely manner and without extra cost to you. When staying at a home, you have access to a washer and dryer. When staying at a hotel, you have to pay extra for the laundry services or take time out of your vacation to go hang out at a laundry mat. When traveling with children, this feature alone is worth its weight in gold. Plus, how nice is it to pack clean clothes before you leave so you don’t have to worry about laundry when you get home?

Entertainment is free

Since most homes come with TV’s, DVD’s, game consoles and more, you can have a relaxing day watching a movie without having to add on an extra $10-$15 to your bill. In a hotel room, you are looking at an almost 200% markup for 90 minutes of that box office hit.

 No Hidden fees

Before you rent a vacation home, the cost is laid out for you on a contract that you sign, including deposits and cleaning fees. In fact, most of these expenses can be found online before you even make the call to Pinnacle Lake Tahoe Getaways to book your Lake Tahoe vacation rental. At a hotel, you have the entertainment costs, internet costs, valet and room services (don’t forget about the tips in addition to the base price!) as well as other little additional costs that generally add up quickly and with little warning.

You get to live like a local

When renting a vacation home, you get the true Lake Tahoe experience by seeing how the locals live. You get access to the perks of whatever neighborhood you choose to stay in such as trails out your back door, a quick walk to the lake, first chair at Heavenly’s California lodge or first come, first serve at the popular brunch spot that is right next door. You may even strike up a conversation with neighbors that give you more local tips you wouldn’t find out from the hotel.

Questions to ask when booking a Lake Tahoe vacation rental

What is your cancellation policy?

Life happens. Weather, a family emergency and many more scenarios can put a hold on vacation plans, or cancel them altogether. Before booking a vacation home for rent, it is advisable to find out what the cancellation policy is. It will be covered in the contract you sign, but so many people don’t pay attention to the fine print, it is a good idea to get a heads up of what is expected of you if something causes you to cancel last second. Plus, it is always nice to know how much of the deposit you lose, if you can book a new date and more in this situation.

How do you check in?

This may seem silly, but many people don’t factor in what happens if they arrive late or after hours. You also want to make sure there is a secure location for you to pick up the key. Many owners use lock boxes or keyless entry codes, but if a key needs to be exchanged, it is a good idea to figure out how exactly you are going to get in.

How many keys do we get?

If your Lake Tahoe vacation home does not come with a keyless entry code or lock box, it is good to know the answer to this. If you are traveling with a large group that has varied interests in activities, you will want to know ahead of time how the key situation will work so you can designate who gets a key and have a back up plan for entry when all of you want to go separate places.

How many cars are allowed?

This is an important one in Lake Tahoe. Vacation Homes in Lake Tahoe cap how many cars can park at the property based on the size of the driveway. If you’re traveling with a big party of people, you will need to figure out the car situation ahead of time so asking how many cars you can have at a property is incredibly important.

What happens in the event that something breaks or there is an issue?

Make sure to find out who to call to report an issue ahead of time. As we stated above, life happens. After continual use, household items can break. Ask during the booking who you can call in the event that you need maintenance help.

How does cleaning work?

This topic always seems to be an issue for some folks. As every home has a different cleaning policy, you will want to find out what the policy is of the home you are renting. Does the price include cleaning, is there an extra cleaning fee, are there things expected of you before you leave the property? What happens in the event that the home is left exceptionally dirty and you are unable to clean before you leave for varying circumstances? It is a good idea to find out the answers to these questions before you arrive.

What equipment is available for use within the home?

Some homes come fully equipped with baby gear, recreational toys and more all for the benefit of the guests. Find out ahead of time what is on site so you know what to pack and what you can use upon arrival.

What activities are nearby?

Most homes are in close proximity to ski resorts, trails, beaches and activities, but it is a good idea to find out what is nearby if you have something specific in mind. Make sure to double check ski resort closing dates if you are planning a spring ski trip.

Packing Tips: What not to forget and how to prepare if you do

Packing is a lot like life. Everyone has a different method. Some methods cause you to shake your head in wonder while others leave you seriously impressed. No matter how prepared you are for your Lake Tahoe Getaway, chances are something is going to get left behind. Most likely, this something will be something you need, bordering on “can’t live without”. We have been in the business of Lake Tahoe vacation rentals for some time now, so read on for our pack hacks.

Stash an extra charger in the carry on

One of the most forgotten packing items is the phone charger. AKA: The life line. With a phone being so much more than just a phone these days, realizing that you left your charger at home while on vacation could send anyone into a panic. However, there are preventative measures for this forgotten item. We asked how some folks prevent this kind of leave behind and got a couple of responses back. The most common response is putting your charger in your purse, carry on or suitcase as soon as you wake up on the morning of travel. This goes for more than just phones too. In fact, one response we got back was putting all your chargers (tablets, laptops and handheld game devices) in a large Ziploc bag so they are all in the same spot.  Luckily, we have a Radio Shack and a Kmart in the middle of town, making it easy to get a new one if all efforts fail or you lose your charger in transit.

Scan important documents to your email

We have all heard the horror story about the person who had their identification stolen (or misplaced) while on vacation. This is a nightmare regardless, but if you are traveling to Lake Tahoe from out of the country, this can ruin your vacation completely. Prior to leaving, scan copies of birth certificates, passports, driver’s license and insurance cards to your email address as well as to your traveling companions. Also, carry physical copies in the off chance you won’t be able to access your emails and need to have proof of identity. Hopefully you will not need to use the backups, but if you do, this will make things a lot easier when getting them replaced.

Use the pillbox

Whether you need your prescription meds, that daily multi or herbal supplements, use the daily pillbox. Sometimes it can seem like a hassle to organize them all before you leave, after all, you can remember to throw them in with the toiletry bag (another commonly left behind item), why should you organize them by day. This is all great and dandy, but what if you forget your health must haves at your home or at your Lake Tahoe vacation rental? Taking the time to sort these ahead of time and then toss in your suit case or carry on allows you to cross this portion of your packing off the list days in advance.

Don’t forget the toiletries

Deodorant, tooth paste, shampoo and makeup are some of the most commonly forgotten items when packing for vacation. You need these items the day of departure, preventing you from packing ahead of time. Several Lake Tahoe vacation rentals come equipped with these items; however, it is always a good to pack the mini sized versions of toiletries into your carry on. You never know when a flight will be delayed or you have to take a detour en-route to Lake Tahoe.

Always pack a coat & your swimwear, no matter what time of year.

Yes, you read that correctly. Whether it is winter or summer, be prepared with clothing items for both hot and cold weather. Even if the vacation home you are renting in Lake Tahoe doesn’t have a hot tub, there are other places where you can use your swim suit. Nephele’s on Ski Run rents out Hot Tubs for use to the public, not to mention several of the casinos and spas have indoor water options. In the summer, bring one cold weather outfit. This is an alpine beach town, which means it can be 80 degrees during the day, but dip down to 40 at night. Not to mention, long time locals can confirm that we have seen snow during summer months too. Yes friends, snow in July in California can happen. Be prepared regardless of what the weather forecast tells you.
