Year Purchased: 2008
About the owner: We are a family of four who dreamed of owning a home in Tahoe. Our dream came true when the housing market declined and we could afford this cozy cabin in such a perfect location. We try to visit once a month. We are continually adding new furniture, electronics, etc. We want it perfect for our visits and your visits! Our children are now teenagers so all of their toys end up in our game room for your children to enjoy. We have cars, dolls, kitchen toys, games, tinkertoys, board games and more. We are so excited every time we get to visit this fantastic cabin and are happy to share our favorite activities and restaurants with you. Just ask! Nana and Aunti E are pictured here with the kids.
Why the Owner Chose Carnelian Bay, CA, USA:
We fell in love with the beautiful, peaceful neighborhood, wide streets (nice when the streets are full of snow and plows!) and quiet location next to the forest. It was important for us to be close to all of the great beaches as well as the major ski resorts like Squaw, Alpine Meadows and Northstar. This is a quiet neighborhood surrounded by nice, large homes. When we saw that this house had a bonus room downstairs we knew instantly that we would bring up the foos ball table and make that the most fun room in the cabin. It is a favorite. The kids will disappear down there in the evenings and never come out...except to eat! We even added a full bath to the game room and a door to the backyard so they really never have to come out:-) It makes it nice when the kids have their own space and the adults can lounge in the living room or decks on their own. The clincher was knowing we had thousands of acres of forest in our back yard including dozens of trails - even an Off Highway Vehicle trail as our son loves to ride ATVs. Luckily, the OHV trails start at the end of our block so it is a quick walk to get to it but that trail does not run directly behind our house so we never hear the noise of the ATVs and dirt bikes on that trail. The trails we do have behind our house are for hiking and biking and occassionally you will see horseback riders. It is perfect for snow-shoeing and cross country skiing in winter. It is fun to go out in the fresh snow in the morning and see all of the animal tracks from the night before. We love walking the neighborhood and enjoying all of the lake views in our area. Fulton Crescent is a great street to watch the sunset colors over the lake. And, we are hoping we might get a lake 'peek' view from our front yard and deck soon as some of the trees are getting removed to make the area more fire safe!! It is a short drive to the lake...which is our favorite spot to hang out in the summer.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Fantastic hill in the backyard makes a great sled run in the winter. Or in the summer you can hike and bike right out the back door to the trails. The Off Highway Vehicle trail is just at the end of the block. We love all of the summer area activities as well such as Farmer's Markets, free concerts on the beach, Truckee street fair, Shakespeare festival, and more. Pick up a free Tahoe paper to see all of the options available. We also just recently decided to make our double kayak and SUP available to our guests for unlimited use during a stay. They are already on the beach and waiting for you! Please add this request in the comments within your online booking and we handle that fee outside of VRBO. So much cheaper and easier than renting by the hour or having to drive the boats back and forth to the lake.
