Agate Bay cabin description

If you are looking for a GREAT MULTI-FAMILY CABIN close to everything, with an ultra-modern kitchen that can easily serve a crowd, with separate living areas for some peace and quiet, but remains conducive and family group activities, equipped with an 8 person Hot Tub on a huge deck flanked by 100 foot trees, and is offered by trustworthy experienced owners who host more than 250 families in their Tahoe and Hawaii properties per year...... then LOOK NO FURTHER ~ YOU'VE FOUND THE PERFECT NORTH LAKE TAHOE CABIN!

This spacious and well-appointed home is a perfect rental for a family vacation or retreat with a group of friends. Located 1/4 mile from pristine Lake Tahoe near Carnelian Bay, the Redwood House is ideally situated to take maximal advantage of all that the Tahoe Basin has to offer. The home is available on a nightly, weekend and weekly basis.

Located on Tahoe's north shore in prestigious Agate Bay, you will have excellent access to the north shore beaches and all major ski areas in the North Tahoe/Truckee area. (4 beaches are within 1/4 - 2 miles). Northstar, Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, Diamond Peak and Homewood Ski Resorts are all less than 15 miles.

This is the ideal home for one or multiple families and groups of friends. There are two living rooms with fire places, a huge outdoor deck, as well as a 750 square foot BONUS-BUNK room complete with wet bar, wood stove, full bath, TV, foosball, and sleeping for 8 or more. This room also functions as a romantic and private master suite.

We have hosted many families and groups at the Redwood House, and our guests really appreciate this floor plan which allows space for everyone to be together, while still having four separate 'living areas' where adults and kids can do their own thing, giving everyone a place to have ample peace and quiet when needed!

We also have an endless hot water system that can supply 4 showers simultaneously and never run out hot water!

Agate Bay is a highly desired residential area that has retained the beauty and serenity of the Tahoe basin. Beautiful and well-kept homes, with many permanent residents are situated on large forested lots. We are located 6 miles east of Tahoe City and 2 miles west of Kings Beach near Carnelian Bay. North Lake Tahoe has minimal traffic, with none of the crowds, congestion, and commercialism of the south shore. (There is just one traffic signal for an 8 mile stretch of the North Shore, where this home is located!) Our family has kept other homes in Agate Bay for almost 40 years...this is without a doubt one of the best locations in the Tahoe basin!

The neighborhood is quiet, very friendly and great for walking. The Redwood House is only 1 block from National Forest Land, where you will find a wonderful walking or biking trail through the woods to Patton Beach on Carnelian Bay (where dogs are welcome!). Or one can hike or mountain bike uphill through the forest to Brockway Summit for panoramic lake views and access to a maze of Forest Service roads! In the winter, cross country or forest road snowshoeing and skiing is right outside your door.

Furnished with many antiques, this spacious home has 3 bedrooms upstairs. The private master bedroom overlooks the trees, and has a large walk-in closet and bath, a VERY comfortable king sized bed with down pillows and comforter. The master bedroom is private, sharing no common walls with the other rooms.

The second bedroom is furnished in a mountain cabin log bed, a VERY comfortable queen sized bed with down pillows and comforter. The third bedroom upstairs also is furnished with a queen bed. The bonus-bunk room serves as a fourth bedroom, and is equipped with two queen futon beds, 4 twin bunk beds, and ample room for additional queen air beds and foam sleeping pads. The bonus/bunk room has a full bath, wet bar, refrigerator, wood stove, separate deck, and the best feature of all.... is placed that the end of the house on the second floor when a lot of raucous laughter and game playing can go on without impacting the other living areas!

The Redwood House has a kitchen designed with the serious cook in mind (that would be Darla in our family!). You'll find top end appliances, including a double oven, warming drawer and a 6 burner gas cooktop. A huge GE monogram refrigerator and a second refrigerator/freezer and oven/range in the garage will meet the needs of large groups and big holiday meals. The kitchen is very well equipped with high quality cookware, utensils and serving dishes. There are place settings for 14 or more, with a dining table that will seat up to 16.

The Redwood House has a huge redwood deck surrounded by 100+ foot trees, and receives full sun in the mornings throughout the year. This is a HEAVENLY place to bask in the morning sun with coffee and a good book or conversation. In the afternoon, when the Tahoe summer sun can be intense, the deck is mostly shaded by trees and the house. Deck furnishings include a teak wood table that expands to seat 10 (with 10 matching chairs) and a large umbrella. You can also bag those summer rays in lounge chairs or a bamboo love seat.

We have a state of the art Hot Springs Grande 8 person Spa is on this deck, in a perfect location for star gazing, and shielded from the street and neighboring houses.

The Redwood House is designed with large windows or sliders in all rooms, where you always feel the presence of the mountain light and air. In the dining room, our 54 inch oak table expands with 3 leaves to seat 12-16 for a sit down meal. The 4th bathroom (with shower) is on the ground level, with the other 3 full bathrooms servicing the second floor bedrooms.

The Redwood House has a one car garage, where bikes or other recreational equipment such as skis can be safely stored. There is ample parking in the driveway for 4 cars and a boat. There are 3 boat launching ramps within a 6 mile drive of Agate Bay. Peter's parents have a 3 bedroom cabin two doors from the Redwood House, “Knob Hill,” VRBO 403863, that we also offered for vacation rentals. The Redwood House can entertain a pretty large group, and when 7 or 8 bedrooms are needed, Knob Hill can be those additional bedrooms and living area.

We are very experienced in vacation rentals with six vacation rental properties in Kona on the Big Island of Hawaii. You can trust that your stay with us will be a good experience handled in a very professional manner. Welcome to Tahoe!

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2001

                  About the owner: This is Peter and Darla, owners and hosts of the Redwood House in Agate Bay. Our full time residence is in Auburn, CA. Peter's parents build a cabin in Agate Bay in 1970, and he's been coming to Agate Bay now for 40 years. We purchased the Redwood House in 2001, and over the years have been systematically remodeling the home. We are very experienced and professional in our offerings of top notch vacation rental homes. We own and personally manage four homes in Kona, on the Big Island of Hawaii, in additon to the Redwood House. We are both physicians, in private specialty practices in Roseville, Folsom and Yuba City. We're active gardeners and travelers. Between us we have four 20-something children, making their way in the world as a fine arts painter, film maker, fashion designer and early childhood educator. Our extended family honors Tahoe as the place we converge at least yearly, and our time in Agate Bay has been one the pillars of love in our big family. Our relationship with Tahoe and this home is evident when you stay with us!

                  Why the Owner Chose Agate Bay:
                  Our family has had a home in Agate Bay for 40 years. Peter's brother also owns a home in Agate Bay. The two brothers 'came of age' during summers in Agate Bay. All 11 grandchildren of Peter's parents have their earliest memories being in Tahoe. There's no other place we treasure more than this!

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                  Peace. Quiet. Serenity. Being within the forest. Stars at night that children living in the city or burbs never knew existed. The purest water you could ever swim in. One of the most beautiful places in the world, any time of the year.
