After a busy and successful summer rental season, the Lakeview Retreat property has now opened up availability for the holiday and winter ski season. Located in beautiful Carnelian Bay along the north shore of Lake Tahoe, it is situated high above the lake, providing both spectacular views of the lake and a quiet, relaxing location.
The home is 3,850 square feet and sleeps up to 14 guests, with plenty of room for all to spread out and enjoy themselves. New furnishings throughout the house, including all-new furniture, beds, and two new, large-screen TVs with DirecTV service.
Two decks provide the perfect locations for enjoying some incredible views of the lake. Virtually every guest tells us that they weren't expecting such a great view -- the pictures just don't capture the real experience.
This home is unique on the north shore rental market due to both its views and its ability to house large groups very comfortably. With 5 bedrooms and 6 baths, each of your guests will feel like they are at home.
If you decide to rent the home for your Christmas holidays, we'll include a Christmas tree, at your option, and either decorate it for you or have some decorations available so you can trim your own tree!
And if you arrive here on a cold, snowy day... no problem! The driveway will be plowed... the walkway shoveled clear... and if you let us know when you plan to arrive, we'll have the house all warmed up to welcome you home.
Finally, situated between three of the best of Lake Tahoe skiing (Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, and Northstar resorts, each within 20 minutes from this home), the Lakeview Retreat serves as your perfect winter getaway destination. Come home after a great day of skiing, shake the chill with a quick visit to the home's sauna, and then relax in front of one of the two gas fireplaces for the ideal apres-skiing experience!
Lots of local activities including road or mtn biking, fantastic local trail systems to explore. 4 miles / 6 minutes to Tahoe City where dining and shopping abound, along with river rafting down the Truckee River (very popular and fun!)
In the winter, we are within 15 minutes of Alpine Meadows (8 miles) and Squaw Valley (10 miles) ski resorts, with several other ski areas within a reasonable drive, including Northstar village (20 minutes), with skiing, ice skating, and lots of family fun!
Whether you enjoy road biking, mtn biking, running, or hiking, you will find nearly endless networks of trails with easy and convenient access right from the home....moreless

About the owner: Bryan and Collette Cowger live in Meadow Vista, CA, and are passionate about Lake Tahoe and the experience of being here. We are delighted to share our new home with you and will do everything we can to ensure your vacation here is the best it can be!
Why the Owner Chose Carnelian Bay: We think that this Lakeview Retreat may be one of the nicest lake view vacation rental properties on the North Shore of Lake Tahoe. The view of the lake simply cannot be properly conveyed via pictures and must be seen in person to fully appreciate. Extensive landscaping in front with a relaxing water feature near the front door to greet you and your guests. Easy access to local dining and skiing make this one of the best locations to be on the north shore.
The Unique Benefits at this House: With nearly all of the bedrooms containing an en suite bath, every guest to Lakeview Retreat will be entirely comfortable. There is no 'bad' bedroom here! The large deck is a perfect place to spend any portion of the day, from the sunrise over the Nevadan mountains to the relaxing last light of sunset across the lake.
