This cute town on the north shore of Lake Tahoe has a small-town vibe with big mountain views. It’s an awesome location for exploring the lake, and most Airbnb and Vrbo rentals in Kings Beach are just blocks from the beach. Many of our Kings Beach rentals feature comfortable, modern Tahoe-style cabins that invite you to relax and unwind next to the woodstove, on sunny decks, or in the hot tub!
Walk to Lake Tahoe from Kings Beach Rentals
A quick stroll is all it takes to get from Kings Beach rentals to Lake Tahoe. This superb location is just minutes from Tahoe’s iconic sandy beaches and rocky mountain shorelines. Kings Beach State Recreation Area, Moon Dune Beach, and Speedboat Beach are a few of the 40+ Lake Tahoe’s public beaches worth checking out.
Winter and Summer Adventure
Planning to book a Kings Beach vacation rental in winter? Several world-class ski resorts are a short drive away. From Kings Beach, it’s 15 minutes to Northstar California Resort, 25 minutes to Palisades Tahoe, and 20 minutes to Mount Rose – Ski Tahoe. There’s also plenty of snowshoeing on nearby forest trails for those looking for a human-powered adventure.
In the summer, most visitors opt to relax on sunny beaches and go paddleboarding, kayaking or swimming. But if you can pull yourself away from Lake Tahoe’s gorgeous shoreline, the nearby Tahoe Rim Trail and Mount Rose wilderness offer miles of scenic hiking trails. For an easy, family-friendly hike with incredible views of Lake Tahoe, check out Stateline Lookout.
Restaurants, Bars, Nightlife
Most downtown restaurants and bars are easily walkable from a Kings Beach rental. The main street offers a variety of cuisine – sushi, Italian, American, Mexican, pizza – as well as lakeside dining with a view.
Hop over the California state border into Nevada (a five-minute drive) to discover the hub of Tahoe nightlife at the Crystal Bay Casino. Their live shows are always a fun time so check out their event calendar for upcoming music. Feeling lucky? No need to drive to Reno to gamble, Crystal Bay Casino has slots and tables… Blackjack, Double Odds Craps, and Roulette await!
