Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: Loving the outdoors makes Tahoe a perfect fit for our family. As kids growing up Tahoe was always the destination of choice. Now proving the apple does not fall far from tree our kids really wanted us to find a place somewhere around the lake. Well as luck would have it we found a place close to where we vacationed as kids. The house is modest but it provides memories that are not. We hope that you also can create memories for your family. Our home is a great place to relax out on the deck while the dogs frolic in the yard or relax inside with a movie after a hard day of hiking, biking, or skiing. We like it and hope you will Too!!

Why the Owner Chose Carnelian Bay:
This home is close to all the excitement of Tahoe and only a block away from the forest which provide endless hours of fun hiking, biking, x-country skiing.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Being centrally located is a big plus when heading out for your day of fun. We are centrally located to Squaw Valley, Northstar, Alpine Meadows, Homewood, Tahoe City, Kings Beach, and Lake Tahoe is about five minutes away.
