Property 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.

Owner info

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....
