Agate Bay cabin description

This classic North Lake Tahoe cabin was built by our family in the 1970's and it's been a year-round family vacation home since then. A large great-room upstairs has seen many games of Risk and Murder! (the family equivalent of Parcheesi) through the years. Also upstairs is the kitchen, dining area and one bath. There is a new sofa sleeper in the living area also. The large new redwood deck upstairs off of the main living area is perfect for BBQ and socializing-its forested setting is quiet and peaceful. The main entrance to the home is downstairs. Off the entry way there are the 3 bedrooms-#1 with a Queen bed, #2 with a Queen and a twin, and #3 with a Queen and 2 twins. The shared bath and laundry room are also off the entry.
We recently re-decorated and updated the home and also purchased new linens. Walk to the beach or hang out at home-Our family has been enjoying this home for generations, we are sure your family will also!

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1970

              About the owner: Our parents built this home when we were in high school (1970s). It has been a year-round family gathering place all these years. Now we own a home 2 doors down, and my brother has a cabin in Agate Bay also!

              Why the Owner Chose Agate Bay:
              Agate Bay is a peaceful community of homes on large lots, a perfect place for long walks. Walking distance to the lake and close to skiing, restaurants and shopping. The perfect North shore location!

              The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
              Serenity! Great North Lake Tahoe location. Walk to national forest land, snowshoeing, sledding areas.
