Vintage-Inspired Glamping at Zephyr Cove

Zephyr Cove is nestled into the south shore of Lake Tahoe, giving guests direct access to the beach, marina, dining, and tons of activities. While there’s no bad way to visit Lake Tahoe, there is a best way: glamping.

Lake Tahoe is all about nature, but for some, camping is just a little too much nature. That’s where glamping comes in. At Zephyr Cove, you can get the best of all worlds by glamping in style and enjoying all that South Lake Tahoe has to offer.

Glamp Under the Stars in Style

Glamping is all about camping in comfort and style. At Zephyr Cove, you have the option of an Airstream adventure where you get to glamp under the stars with your friends or family.

The Airstream campers at Zephyr Cove are newly built, with luxurious finishes and vintage charm. Since these campers were first developed in the 1930s, their distinctive shape and rounded aluminum coachwork have become iconic. At Zephyr Cove, you can rent these iconic campers to make your stay truly magical.

With all the comforts of a home, you won’t even know you’re camping.


What makes the Airstreams so perfect for a glamping adventure is that they’re outfitted with everything you could need for your stay and have plenty of space for you to bring the whole family.

Each Airstream has a queen bed, a convertible dinette, and a lounge bed to sleep a total of 4 people. The bathroom includes a toilet and sink, with a shower across the hall so you have all the amenities you need for a comfortable stay.

For cooking, you’ll find a fully equipped kitchen, gas stove top, and microwave so you can whip up your favorite meals indoors. If you’d prefer a more traditional camping experience, you can cook outside with a gas grill or over the fire pit. Be sure to bring some s’mores making materials for a traditional camping dessert!

In the evenings, you can enjoy dining al fresco at the picnic table or sitting around the fire in your Adirondack chairs. We provide 2 bundles of firewood for your stay.

Nearby Dining Options

While your Airstream comes with a full kitchen, you just might not want to cook on vacation. Luckily, you’ll find plenty of dining options nearby, including:

  • Zephyr Cove Restaurant: this dining establishment serves up local, sustainable cuisine year-round. You can get breakfast, lunch, or dinner here. You’ll find a menu full of American favorites and contemporary classics. You can also visit The Lodge for beer, wine, and cocktails.
  • Sunset Bar & Grille: After a day at the beach or out on the water, you probably are craving a cocktail and some pub grub. Head over to the Sunset Bar & Grille to sit outside and enjoy some cold beverages and a meal that everyone in the family will love. You can sit inside, outside on the deck, or under a palm umbrella.
