Thanksgiving is a day for spending with friends, family and loved ones. What better place to do that than South Lake Tahoe? Rent a luxury vacation rental for the whole family for Thanksgiving, and make lasting memories in the mountains. Thanksgiving is on Thursday November 24, 2016, which means it is coming up quickly. It is never to early to start planning you Thanksgiving vacation to South Lake Tahoe, and here are just a few of the reasons to help convince you!
Gourmet and Deluxe Kitchens
Buckingham Luxury Vacation Rental’s larger homes have kitchens rated at the deluxe and gourmet level. You can enjoy using top of the line appliances throughout your stay in your luxury vacation rental. All of our vacation rental kitchens are also equipped with everything needed to create a dinner masterpiece for the whole family. This includes all pots, pans, dinner ware, serve-ware, glassware and flatware. If you want to make your stay even more special, contact our concierge partner Tahoe Warm Welcome and have the home decorated prior to your arrival!
If you and your family stray away from a traditional home cooked Thanksgiving meal, we have many excellent restaurants in South Lake Tahoe to choose from. Whatever type of cuisine you are in the mood for, chances are we have it in South Lake Tahoe. From Asian and Indian, to Italian and even to Latin inspired! Many of South Lake Tahoe’s restaurants will feature a special for Thanksgiving dinner, so be sure to check back with them as the time gets closer.
If you would rather enjoy a home cooked meal, but don’t want to prepare it yourself we have the solution for that too! Hire one of our recommended private chefs and have them create a Thanksgiving meal for the record books. Once you pick your favorite, give them a call and let them know what you are in the mood for. You can then have the Chef come to your vacation rental and cook the meal for you and your family. If you would rather have them prepare a meal and deliver it to you, that can be arranged as well. Our private chef’s will even stock your fridge prior to your arrival, and you can prepare the meals yourself without the hassle of grocery shopping!
Early Season Skiing and Riding
Sometimes we get lucky enough to have a white Thanksgiving! But even if we don’t have natural snow, our local ski mountains will open with man-made snow. This is great, because you are guaranteed to get out on the slopes either way! Heavenly Mountain Resort, Northstar-at-Tahoe and Kirkwood Mountain Resort are all scheduled to open on November 19, 2016. Sierra-at-Tahoe will be open on November 18, 2016. Which means, you can hit the slopes to work off that turkey dinner! Or, better yet, work up your turkey appetite and ski before you indulge in a delicious post-skiing dinner. Early season skiing is always fun, as the slopes are not yet crowded and you can get your ski legs under you.
Rent Two Homes Instead of One
If your family is larger than one vacation rental can hold, and you need space for three generations, rent two or three homes instead of just one. This is a great option if there are multiple families, and each needs their own space. Buckingham Luxury Vacation Rentals has groups of homes in neighborhoods, and some that are walking distance to each other. If you are thinking this is going to be the best option for you, contact us directly and a reservation specialist can email you over a list of the homes in certain neighborhoods. If you do rent more than one of our homes at the same time, don’t forget to ask your reservation specialist for the TwoOrMore discount!
