Carnelian Bay cabin description

Adorable, remodeled, warm and cozy cabin is located just off highway 28, directly across from the lake, making it accessible even in the most snowy weather.(In summer there is lake access through a locked neighborhood gate.) Knotty cedar interior is complemented with hardwood floors and hand carved doors with scenes of Tahoe. The great room includes TV, Stereo, games, and a fully functional and efficient wood stove. Kitchen, dining and family room create an atmosphere for fun and communication for everyone (including the ''designated chef''). Two queen bedrooms and a 4 person bunkroom provide a perfect arrangement for two couples and 4 children (or less).

This cabin is a short walk to one of the lake's finest restaurants and a fun miniature golf course as well as to a local beach which allows dogs (and people too!) It is 15-20 minutes to Northstar, Alpine, Squaw Valley, Diamond Peak, and Homewood ski resorts.

                                    We had a great time staying at this cabin for a weekend trip to Lake Tahoe. We were a group of 7, with a baby and small dog. The number of beds worked out great for us; we appreciated that there was a crib available, and that our friend was allowed to bring her dog. The location was very convenient to the grocery store, the beach, and to the Northstar ski area, where we attended an event. We enjoyed cooking breakfast and dinners in the kitchen, and there was ample space for our large group to relax and play games in the evening in the living area. There were plenty of linens, towels, blankets, and anything else to make our stay comfortable. And the owner was only a phone call away, in case we had any questions. Overall we had an excellent time!

                                    Owner response: Thank you for such a nice review. I hope to always provide the best experience possible. Lynn

                                    we just returned from our stay here and have no complaints at all! the house is so comfortable and has everything we needed for our week-long stay. we have a tempurpedic bed at home and often find sleeping away from home a bummer, not so in this case. the master bed was so comfortable. the kids were comfy in their rooms as well. we found being near waterman's at patton landing so great for renting kayaks and paddle boards as well as afternoon treats. gar woods was a perfect date night out just up the street. the owner was great about answering our questions before and during our stay. we would stay here again without hesitation.

                                  Year Purchased: 1996

                                  About the owner: I taught Home Ec. and Science in the bay area before moving to Tahoe for full-time residence in this 'fixer-upper' home. It is now fixed up and I'm pretty sure you will agree, NICE!

                                  Why the Owner Chose Carnelian Bay:
                                  The comments I always get : it's not like a rental, more like coming to visit a real home. There's everything anyone could want in the kitchen, The fluffy sheets are great! Warm and cozy! The kids loved the bunk room!

                                  The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                                  This cabin has the 'Old time Tahoe' feel with all the convenience of updates! Very cabiny but forced air heat, nice beds, good linnens. Great grohe shower heads....
