Lake Tahoe is one of the beautiful places that makes top 10 lists around the world. There is so much to offer it’s absolutely no surprise. There is world class skiing, unparalleled natural beauty, and a robust culture all stacked high in the Sierra Nevada mountains.

If you take the time to search for Lake Tahoe on Instagram, you will quickly find how good skiing can be up here. So why not get yourself a bit of that downhill goodness with the cornerstone of Lake Tahoe adventures, the ski trip.

You can’t have a ski trip without a cabin, so we have put together a collection of the most Instagram worthy cabins and homes located in Lake Tahoe’s North Shore. Our prices are based on a stay from February 22nd to February 24th and include all fees.

This one bedroom chalet has a commanding view over the lake looking east. You will get the morning sun streaming though the loft master to wake you for a day on the slopes. The decor is minimal and tasteful which will make your selfies look incredible. The deck looks over the lake and would make a great spot to start the day with a cup of coffee.


The main floor has an open floor plan and a gorgeous kitchen with subway tile and an apron sink. A fireplace compliments the living area and the entire chalet has open exposed wood nearly everywhere. Vaulted ceilings and a window from the bedroom to the living area make this a great choice.

The massive A-frame cabin has been recently updated with new furniture that looks incredibly cozy. There is a writing nook off the master bedroom that over looks the living area and the lake that would be perfect for taking some needed journal time.

Unfortunately, you will never notice these details because every room has a view of the lake that could easily be a magazine cover. The master bedroom has a view from the bed, as does the second, third, fourth, and on… Then to add a cherry on top the eight-person dining table has wrap around lake views. An incredible property.

In Conclusion

When I was young I have fond memories taking cabin trips with friends and family in both winter and summer. I would love exploring the entire house imagining all the stories that took place in those walls. Even though I was never a morning person, waking up for a day on the slopes always got me energized. 

These are just a handful of the gorgeous homes you could stay in for your upcoming ski trip. Each has stunning decor, incredible views, in a great location. If that doesn’t make them Instagram worthy I don’t know what would.
