Property description

The Abbe Cabin features old Tahoe charm in three stylish separate units––Lakeside, Lookout and Roadhouse. Our lakefront compound gives privacy for families or groups of friends, and everyone comes together for a Lakeside meal, drinks on the deck, or games by fireside.

Plowed, level driveway to a 2-car garage gives easy winter access from the main road around the lake; large sloping lot insures quiet in the units.

For Summer 2016, we are currently taking week-long reservations. Check back with us in the new year for shorter stays.

See our website for additional details (click link below), or for off-season inquiries for rental of just one or two of the three cabins.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1974

About the owner: We are four sisters who love family time at the cabin. Our own children have grown up here, and the grandkids are now loving it.

Why the Owner Chose Carnelian Bay:
Our great-grandparents camped near Tahoe City in the early 1900s. Our grandparents continued the tradition, camping at Bliss State Park each summer. Our parents purchased this lakeside retreat in 1974, continuing a happy tradition of summer on the shores of Lake Tahoe.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Comfortable, charming and convenient, with beautiful views of crystal-blue water and snow-kissed mountains. The private rocky beach and lake shore provide a welcome retreat from civilization. A lakeside public path, which meanders north along the shore, delivers you to Carnelian Bay and its 3 restaurants, store, post office, dog-friendly beaches and public pier.
