"Where should I stay?"

There are several options. First, the regatta has a block of ten (10) standard rooms reserved at the Crown Motel (regatta venue). This is definitely the most convenient option. Please note these rooms are available on a first-come, first-served basis, so CALL THE MOTEL ((530) 546-3388) and ask for the Nordstrom/Tahoe Regatta block to book as soon as possible.

There are several other hotels and motels in the area, both on the lakeshore and over at Northstar Resort (good option for easy parking if you have a boat on your car). However, Tahoe is extremely popular in the summer, and hotels book up early.

If you can assemble a larger group of people, renting a big house on AirBNB or VRBO is a great option. Vacation rentals also book up early, but the bigger the house (and, therefore, the higher the price), the less competition you’ll have.

By the way, if you do go the AirBNB route, please (please, please, please) behave yourself and be respectful of the neighbors. Too many rude and unruly tourists have destroyed local sentiment toward short-term rentals. The last thing we need is complaints about “those North Tahoe Regatta people.” Keep it down, don’t use charcoal or fireworks, clean up after yourself, and be Bear Aware.

As a last resort, try staying in South Reno and driving up the morning of the race. It’s roughly a 40-minute drive over the Mount Rose Highway to Kings Beach.
