Agate Bay house description

Very private woodsy site, yet near conveniences. Walk to Garwoods restaurant or the beach! A great 'get away from it all'... place!

This all pinewood Mountain Retreat has old Tahoe charm in every room. New kitchen & baths with lovely mountain furnishings make this home a comfortable family retreat for all seasons. Relax on a huge sunny deck or enjoy the warmth of a crackling wood fire. The sun room is a great place to awaken for breakfast before embarking on a backyard ski into the national forest. Adventurous skiers can ski from the cabin and summit Mt Pluto at Northstar resort, then ski back.

Comfortably share the Tahoe experience with friends or another family. A separate playroom/TV room, away from the living room make for quiet adult apres ski conversation while enjoying the stone hearth or outside deck. Off the playroom, an outside sandy badminton/volleyball court or Bocce or Croquet in the backyard make this ideal for young kids. Sports equipment in cabin.

The cabin sleeping arrangements are:
Bedroom 1 with 'Queen Log Bed' and exterior deck.
Bedroom 2 with 'Queen Log Bed' and exterior deck.
Bedroom 3 with 'Log Bunk Bed' twin mattress over full size mattress.
Bedroom 4 with full size bed-separate room off the loft with low ceiling-for kids or small adults
Twin mattress in the loft
Full size pull out couch in Family room.

Gas BarBQue on the deck; sometimes an igloo is in backyard... courtesy of my kids.

Our cabin is ideally located to take advantage of all the year round fun that the Tahoe region and Lake Tahoe have to offer. We are in the midst of world class skiing resorts, including x-country & backcountry skiing right out the back door. Our favorite beaches and restaurants are a 5-10 minute walk with boat & kayak launches even closer. Nothing better than relaxing after a day of outdoor fun next to a cozy warm fire with friends and family!

The cabin has direct & easy access to backcountry wilderness for hiking & skiing.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
