Vacation Home Rentals

Vacation Home Rentals (VHRs) have been permitted in the Tahoe Township by ordinance since 2005. VHRs are properties that are rented on a short-term basis (less than 28 days). The VHR program is designed to allow families outside of the Tahoe Region to enjoy the beautiful scenery of Lake Tahoe and what the region has to offer. The permitting process is in place to ensure that visitors can enjoy but respect the residents privacy who call this area "home"!

To view the current VHR Code use this link and search for section 20.622.

NOTICE: The VHR Advisory Board has approved a revision to the VHR Code, which will be presented to the Planning Commission on March 14, 2023. A copy of the proposed revision can be found here. A clean version can be found here.
