"My partner and I, along with another couple, stayed at the apartment over the Christmas holiday. We were there principally to snowboard at Squaw and Alpine but also had a few days at Northstar too. Carnelian Bay is approximately 20 minutes from all three mountains by car, which is pretty handy! Tahoe City is ten minutes drive away, is a nice small town, and contains everything you may need while on a self-catering vacation, as well as some decent pubs and places to eat.
The apartment itself is great! Before we even arrived I was sent a detailed information pack on the place. It's situated in a very quiet piece of woodland set back a little from, but with views of, Lake Tahoe. Upon arrival the place was very well presented and nice and warm. We instantly felt cozy and at home. A quick tour around revealed a really well stocked apartment with plenty of towels, bedding, toilet rolls, etc, as well as something important to myself - a well equipped kitchen. There was everything needed to cook most nights, including a slap-up Christmas dinner! Other things worth noting are the log fire, decent TV, comfy bed and sofa (bed), free WIFI and washer/dryer. Guests can also enjoy the club house, which houses outdoor hot tubs (perfect after a days skiing/snowboarding!), sauna and a pool table. This is situated five minutes walk down the hill.
I would recommend this apartment to anyone and I would definitely go back myself, summer or winter.
