Four to five other couples, plus my boyfriend and me (all in our late 20's) are looking to rent a house for a long weekend this summer. We were originally considering Sea Ranch, but I've looked around sites like VRBO and it actually doesn't look there are too many places big enough for all of us--the ones that say they can sleep 10+ have a bunch of bunk beds because I guess they're assuming you have kids with you (no kids on this trip).
We are considering Tahoe--certainly no shortage of huge houses there--but some are worried that it's too expensive (eating there, doing things--just the area in general I guess). So in the interest of thorough research, I am looking for good alternatives.
Some criteria: We'd like somewhere with beautiful scenery where we can swim (so somewhere near a lake would be great), hike, maybe kayak and do general outdoorsy stuff....though some of us are less outdoorsy, so it'd be nice if we found a place that didn't make the less nature-inclined feel like they are stuck in the middle of nowhere. Also, a few in the group would be coming up from SoCal (the rest of us from Bay Area or Sacramento area) so nowhere that would take forever to drive to or too far away from a major airport (this rules out Shasta, for example). As much as I love the coast, I know most places there get foggy in the summer (though if there is an exception please chime in!) so I'm thinking we're better off inland. Not ruling out Central California either, but northern CA is preferable. Yosemite would be cool but the lodging there is EX-PEN-SIVE and I don't think we're up for camping.
