Best luxury vacation homes to rent around Northstar

Next week marks the official start of autumn, which can only mean that winter is coming and not far behind it. Last year’s first snowfall came just a few weeks into autumn, setting up what became a record-breaking winter around Lake Tahoe. Fittingly then, it’s time to start planning those ski weekend getaways. So today we’re sharing five of Lake Tahoe's best private luxury homes you can rent around Northstar this winter.
