Carnelian Bay cabin description

Welcome to Gundy's Getaway, a delightfully cozy 'Classic Tahoe' cabin very near the Lake. Don't be fooled by a glance at the map--the cabin is not right on the highway running around the Lake, rather it is a few cabins up in the delightful Ridgewood Road neighborhood. You will be set back from the hustle of the main road so that you can enjoy time out on the lovely deck.
Rustic in feel only, this pine-wrapped home has newly remodeled, beautifully tiled kitchen and bathrooms, flat-screened tv, Wi-Fi, and a large deck with a filtered lake view, barbeque and hot tub. Tahoe mountain decor and a gorgeous old wood burning fireplace round out this authentic Tahoe Cabin. Everyone in the family, including the canine members, will feel a warm welcome.
The lake is just a short walk away for a refreshing swim. A lovely community beach is just a mile away. The cabin is centrally located, close to Tahoe City and Kings Beach for wonderful lakefront dining, shopping, music and a great variety of nightlife including the casinos.

Keywords: Classic Lake Tahoe log cabin between and near Tahoe City and Kings Beach, walk to lake, sunny deck w/ great view, hot tub, dog friendly, very clean, well stocked, every convenience, cozy mountain decor

              Year Purchased: 1976

              About: Sisters Gry and Lisen Gunderson are delighted to share their family cabin with you. You will feel the warmth of their countless family gatherings over thirty some years. Gry owns and operates an equestrian center in the Fairfield area where she trains people with their horses in show jumping. Lisen lives on the Big Island of Hawaii with her family where they have a Kona coffee farm and mill.

              Why Carnelian Bay:
              Gundy and Harriet loved this particular location when they decided to buy a cabin at Tahoe because of its central location to all the activities they enjoy. It's near to both of the major towns on the North Shore--Tahoe City and Kings Beach are just minutes away. Harriet loved to play black jack at Stateline casinos with girl friends, only 15 minutes down the road. Garwoods, one of the most popular restaurants on the lake, is just one mile away. Gundy could walk down to the lake for an early morning fishing expedition and the kids could just spend hours playing in the water. In winter, favorite ski resorts are just 25 minutes away in either direction, Squaw Valley, Homewood and North Star.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
              Some of our favorite things to do up at the cabin are to take walks through the neighborhood, taking in the views and enjoying the great diversity of cabins. At the top of the neighborhood is Tahoe Forest Reserve where you can hike for miles in wilderness. We enjoy hanging out down at the lake, boating, swimming, catching crawdads. A public, dog-friendly beach is less than a mile from the cabin for a picnic or sunset by the water. You can catch the bike trail just a mile a way which goes all the way down the west side of the lake and along the Truckee River towards Squaw Valley. We have our favorite restaurants that we love to frequent as well as farmer's markets and shopping, just minutes away in both directions. Sitting on the deck in the morning sun, napping on the swing in the afternoon with a good book, and soaking in the hot tub after a swim in the lake are all favorite times at the cabin.
