Property description

Check-out the reviews and the Guestbook Comments! Guests love the special touches and you will too! The Cozy Cottage is perfect for a family getaway or a group of friends. Explore the trails nearby, visit with the locals, sit on the deck or hit the slopes or the beach...great location!

What's NEW at THE COZY COTTAGE? We've added a Hot Springs HOT TUB with a salt system (reduce chlorine odor)...for your soaking pleasure after a long day of hiking or skiing! Enjoy!

Visiting Lake Tahoe for some REST AND RELAXATION? Is it a SPECIAL OCCASION? Just need some FRESH MOUNTAIN AIR? Or some GREAT OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES?

Whatever the reason, see how quickly you slip into the comforts of MOUNTAIN LIVING when you step inside THE COZY COTTAGE.

From the moment you open the front door, you feel so welcome, stepping into the CHIC DINING AREA AND KITCHEN. Complete with vaulted ceilings, the Dining Area includes a table that seats 6, while the Kitchen is immediately adjacent. Completely stocked with all the necessities, the Kitchen boasts a farm-style sink, marble counter tops, stainless appliances, including gas stove and microwave. The BUTCHER BLOCK ISLAND makes wine and cheese hour and/or food preparation easy and even has seating for 2. Large windows throughout these areas make it extra airy and bright.

Sliding glass doors open to the WRAP AROUND DECK where you'll find the gas BBQ grill, a supply of wood for the fireplace and a sunny spot for coffee in the morning. Hardwood floors run in the public areas of the Main Level (bedrooms are carpeted).

An UNEXPECTED SURPRISE is our sneak-peek VIEW OF LAKE TAHOE! Looking out from the deck or the Great Room or the Master Bedroom, we have our own piece of the beautiful lake. Looking out over the trees and seeing the lake makes you know you're in the mountains!

The GREAT ROOM is just off the Dining Area and Kitchen. The Great Room brings the word 'cozy' to The Cozy Cottage! Furnished with two sofas that set right in front of the beautiful STONE WOOD BURNING FIREPLACE (wood provided; regular heat also), this is a great space to sit and read a book, look at the sneak-peek of the Lake or enjoy nice conversation with family and friends. The large coffee table is just waiting for a game of cards, checkers or a crazy board game. Large windows with sliding glass doors open to the BACK DECK where you'll find the HOT TUB, patio table and 6 chairs and a couple of chaise lounges (summer)...the perfect area for getting some fresh air and soaking up some mountain sun!

The ENTERTAINMENT CENTER is in the Great Room, complete with a big screen TV (satellite provided), DVD player and surround sound system. For those who need to stay 'connected,' WiFi is provided as well as an Ethernet cable to go without WiFi.

The Cozy Cottage offers three BEDROOMS...all are super warm and comfy. The MASTER BEDROOM is located on the Main Level and consists of one Queen size bed and has a full bathroom with tub/shower combination just across the hall. Wake-up each morning looking out the large picture window that looks out at the trees and see a sneak peek of Lake Tahoe. The SECOND BEDROOM is on the Main Level and is furnished with two twin beds. These beds can be converted into one King bed at your request. The full bathroom on the Main Level is right next to this bedroom. The THIRD BEDROOM is on the Second Level and has one Queen bed. This bedroom has its own flat screen television and DVD player. Right next to the bedroom is the second full bathroom with a beautifully tiled walk-in shower.

BATHROOMS: The home provides two beautiful full bathrooms; one on the Main Level (shower/tub combination) and one of the Second Level (walk-in shower).

Your PET IS ABSOLUTELY WELCOME! The Cozy Cottage is in a very pet friendly neighborhood. Walk around the neighborhood or use the trails and go for a swim in the reservoir after a short hike. Don't be surprised if you get a visit at the front door from a neighborhood dog coming to see who they get to play with.

SPECIAL TOUCHES include Ralph Lauren and Coyuchi organic cotton sheets and towels, organic starter soaps packaged in 100% recycled paper, incandescent full spectrum light bulbs, tree-free hangers made from 100% recycled paper, all natural laundry soap (no dryer sheets), and all natural cleaning products are used by cleaning crew. And the NEW Hot Springs HOT TUB has a salt water system that helps to reduce chlorine odor and feel.

LOCAL CONTACT: Very unique when compared to most vacation rentals....our Property Manager handles only a small number of select properties in order to give one-on-one personalized service from inquiry to 'see you again soon' and lives just minutes away from The Cozy Cottage...handy should you need anything while you're here.

LOCATION...LOCATION...LOCATION...The Cozy Cottage is situated on the mountain above the lake in Carnelian Bay (between Tahoe City and Kings Beach) and is in a lovely neighborhood just minutes away from all of that Lake Tahoe has to offer...beaches, golfing, hiking and biking in the summer...world class ski resorts (Squaw Valley, Alpine, Northstar, Homewood, Diamond Peak, Mt. Rose), XC ski trails, sledding hills, snowshoe trails in the winter...and great restaurants, shops and casinos year-round. The neighborhood has exclusive access to some of the greatest hiking/biking/XC/snowshoe trails in North Lake Tahoe. Or just walk around the block to see one of the most amazing lake views in all of Lake Tahoe!

Some LOCALS' RECOMMENDATIONS: The greatest hiking/biking/snowshoeing/sledding trails are right outside your door (up to Fulton Crescent and to the left). Hit the Bridge Tender or Rosie's Cafe for some apres ski action, go ice skating at Northstar or take the Gondola to the top of the mountain at Squaw! Visit the Firesign Cafe for breakfast or lunch. In Summer, enjoy lunch or dinner on the deck overlooking Lake Tahoe at Sunnyside Resort. Grab an 'all natural' meal at the 'Uncommon Kitchen,' located in the New Moon Health Store in Tahoe City. Go to the Free Concerts at Commons Beach on Sunday (bring a picnic). The best to-go sandwiches are at the PDQ Market in Tahoma and the Uncommon Kitchen in Tahoe City (at New Moon Health foods). Visit Uncorked Wine Store for wine tasting, appys and pleasant conversation with the staff. Get great coffee and pastries at Tahoe House (ride your bike). Ride or walk the bike path from Tahoe City to Squaw Valley. Tube the Truckee River to River Ranch and have an ice cream! Best Mexican? Los Panchitas! Best Italian? Lanza's...both in Kings Beach! Enjoy!

Location

Enjoy a sneak peek of the lake and mountains from master bedroom and deck. About 3 blocks from fabulous hiking, mountain biking and even a small reservoir for fishing and maybe a swim for you or certainly your dog in the summer. Winter brings snowshoeing, cross-country skiing and sledding on those same trails. Mid-way between Tahoe City and Kings Beach, so convenient to all ski areas and activities around the lake.

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2011

Why Carnelian Bay:
We bought this house after leasing it for several winters many years ago. Whenever we stayed we hated to leave the amazing view and homey feel, so when we decided to buy in Tahoe this was the house we really wanted and feel so lucky to own it now. We enjoy the ambiance year round with a view that can't be beat, plus nice trees and plush lawn for lots of outdoor enjoyment. We love the many trails that are so close by, so you hardly have to leave the neighborhood to have fun and exercise. But it is so convenient to all that Tahoe has to offer being located between Tahoe City and Kings beach. It was recently remodeled with beautiful wood and stone details, nice bright kitchen and bamboo floors.
