About The Owner

Caren and I (Dave) purchased this Townhouse in 2008 looking for a Mountain escape for our family, extended family and friends. We loved the location and all the amenities that Carnelian Woods has to offer. Come and enjoy this breathtaking vacation destination.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your cabin served as a perfect base camp for our Tahoe adventures. While here we enjoyed kayaking at crystal bay, mt. biking Mt Rose and Hole in the Ground, Truckee and a gorgeous hike up to Lake Aloha. It was low this time of year but still spectacular (16 miles round trip). If anyone hikes this, make sure to go all the way to the end of the lake and climb up a ways for a view. Rabins, again thank you for your hospitality and generous kind spirit. It was unforgettable.

A great vacation spot! Prepare to be welcomed warmly!

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic place! Even during the July 4th Weekend Carnelian Bay was a pocket of quiet! That's hard to find in Lake Tahoe... The Rabin condo is within a short walk from the beach, kids activities, food, and hiking trails. My family of four (13 and 9 yo) was never bored! The accommodations are fantastic! Comfortable. Clean. Spacious. Well stocked. The Rabin family generously offers use of a number of "beach supplies" and provides all the cooking gear to ensue you're not a slave to expensive restaurants. I couldn't be happier!

Cozy, comfy, fun

  • 5 of 5

Rabin Retreat was a wonderful, warm and well maintained condo, both inside and out. There was a fierce snow storm yet access to the parking lot, walkways and door. Entering the condo was warm and cozy. The kitchen was convenient and great for preparing meals. Beds were super comfy. The Lodge use was such a bonus. The kids loved the game room. We all enjoyed the hot tubs & pool table. Just all around great place.

Lovely little place!

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect for our guys ski trip. Comfy and clean with everything we needed. It was affordable for just the 3 of us, but the place will sleep as many as 7. David was very friendly and helpful to work with. I would definitely rent this place again.

Everything a family needs

  • 4 of 5

This is a great little condo. It's about 15 min from Northstar and very close to the lake. Good for summer or winter. The bunk room sleeps 4 and there is a master bedroom upstairs, that also has an extra twin bed. The owner was very nice, offering to let us check in early and check out late, as the condo was not rented on either side of our stay.

Great place to stay - book this one

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a great weekend of skiing in Tahoe, and Dave went far above and beyond to coordinate a last minute rental in the midst of a multi-day blizzard. The cabin is centrally located for both winter and summer activities, and is a quick 5 minute walk from the lake. The living area is quite spacious and had plenty of room for our party to hang out after a day on the slopes in front of the fire. The layout is great for families too with enough beds to fit a decent sized crew. Overall I highly recommend this cabin and hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did!
