Lakes are probably not the first thing to come to mind when someone mentions Nevada. Nevada's lakes are overshadowed by the state's deserts and casinos however some of the country's most famous lakes can call the Silver State home, kind of. In fact, Nevada should be famous for shared custody of lakes. Three of the state's most famous lakes, Lake Tahoe and Lake Mead are all part of the border of Nevada and another state. Vacationing to a Nevada lake house puts vacationers in a great location with plenty of activities to discover.
Lake Tahoe is one of the Nevada's most beautiful destinations. The lake sits on the border of the California border in the heart of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Lake houses in Tahoe have the benefit of being in the prime location for skiing and snowboarding all winter long and being beautiful beach homes in the summer.

Gamblers will enjoy the easily accessible casinos that begin right on the Nevada side of the town.

Las Vegas, and within striking distance of Las Vegas is the second of Nevada's shared lakes, Lake Mead. Lake Mead shares its waters between Nevada and Arizona. Residents and vacationers in the Lake Mead area will enjoy dramatic views of mountain sides as well as Lake Mead. Like many lakes, Lake Mead is a popular destination for boaters, swimmers, and fisherman. In contrast to the mountainous environment of Lake Tahoe, Nevada shows its other side of desert landscape and wildlife at Lake Mead.
