Find Accommodations

RnR Vacation Rentals would love to help ease your post-race pain by helping you find the perfect home to recover in.

  • Tahoe Woods at Stateline: This 3 bedroom, 3bathroom town home is 0.6 miles to the finish line of the marathon. The home has a stunning open kitchen, plenty of seating in the living area around the fireplace and HDTV to relax, a shuffleboard table for fun after you’ve regained your strength, and multiple king beds to sleep off the sore muscles.
  • Waterfront Serenity in Tahoe Keys: This 4 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom home is on Venice drive, right along the race route. You can scope out the course the day before, and get a leg up on the competition by practicing that stretch. Plus the home has a private hot tub in the backyard and overlooks a serene lagoon for your post-race recovery.
  • Lakeland Village: We manage 7 homes in the convenience of Lakeland Village, from a 1 room studio near the hot tub up to a 4.5 room townhouse with a lake view. You are sure to find other runners in this resort complex to bond with before and after the race. You can walk to nearby restaurants and carbo-load, or reflect on the experience in one of the multiple pools, hot tubs, or spa.

We have plenty of other homes available with varying amenities and of all different sizes. Check them out at, or give us a call at 855-99-TAHOE today.
