Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)
We invite you to enjoy our warm cabin get-a-way ~ A perfect location for enjoying all things special about Lake Tahoe! We are 7 minutes from shopping in Tahoe City, 15 minutes from Squaw Valley or Northstar and only a 2 block walk to lake's edge. The cabin backs to forest land so step out the back door for miles of hiking, cross country skiing or snowshoeing. In this classic Tahoe cabin you can build a cozy wood fire or drift off to sleep in plush down covered beds. Big fluffy towels are ready for you in the 2 bathrooms and the kitchen is fully stocked if you chose to cook a big meal. On the cook's night off, you can walk down to famous Gar Woods Restaurant and sip an afternoon cocktail on their open air deck. For more causal dining you must try the calzones at CB's Pizza.
Our cabin can sleep 6-9 of your crew! A bath and 2 bedrooms are downstairs with a full bed and a queen bed. Climb up the quaint wooden stairway to find the kids bunk space with 3 singles. The master bedroom is also upstairs with a wonderfully soft King-size bed and a second bath. If other friends join you last minute, pull out the comfy convertible bed in the living room.
While the cabin is cozy for couples, it's a great space for families too. The bunkroom is a favorite for kids with plush bedding and small woodland critter stuffies on each bed to snuggle with. A nice open space in the middle of the floor is a great place to play board games or build Lego creations (Legos included!)
Downstairs you will find a game table with many choices including classics like chess, checkers & backgammon, and kids favorites such as I Spy and Cranium. The living room also holds a flat-screen TV with satellite and DVD player including a nice selection of movies for the entire family.
Outside the cabin there is a big, beautiful deck off the front with peek views of the lake. The sunrise from this deck cannot be missed! You can see the amber sunrise reflected beautifully on the lake. In the backyard you will find there is just enough of an incline to make a small sledding area for the littlest ones -- and don't forget the miles of woods to discover!
Welcome to your classic Tahoe vacation! We are holding a space for your family memories.

About Linda Lessner
Texas meets Tahoe. We are an active family with 4 young kiddos from Austin, Texas. We have loved Tahoe for many years and this cabin is part of our family dream. Two of our favorite sports are snowboarding and rock climbing--both are great in Tahoe!
Linda Lessner purchased this Cabin in 2011
Why Linda Lessner chose Carnelian Bay
Carnelian Bay is a beautiful area of Lake Tahoe. We have been coming to the northwest corner of the lake since 1997. The people are friendly and very interested in all things outdoors! This corner so centrally located to many things we love including snowboarding, activities in Tahoe City and rafting the Truckee River. Being so close to Highway 267, we like that it is easy to get to and from Reno Airport especially when you get some last minute snow!
What makes this Cabin unique
This cabin feels like home. It is so cozy and laid back. My favorite vision is waking up on 'Texas time' to catch the morning sunrise. The first time I saw it I was amazed by the amber colors reflecting off the lake. It is so peaceful here.

Place was very quaint and cozy. We were bummed that we only got a day
All around this place was great. Linda was great to work with in all aspects. The home is a great use of space for the square footage We prefer this side of Tahoe vs all others. Less busy with all the craziness close by.
Cozy and Charming
Great location in Carnelian Bay! We were just minutes from everything North Shore has to offer. Plenty of amenities in a cozy atmosphere made this an amazing stay for our family of seven. Best of all, the owner was very responsive to our needs!- Thank you!
This was our second time at this hour.
The house is very cozy and comfortable and has everything a family needs to enjoy a winter holiday.
We had a wonderful weekend at the cabin and the process was seamless
Cozy, clean cabin in a perfect location.
We were here for a short weekend get-away with family from TX. King’s Beach is super close, and Garwood’s is within walking distance. We cooked the whole time - one of the better equipped VRBO kitchens I’ve visited in a while. Rooms are cozy, beds super comfy, and living dining area was perfect for 6 of us.
Cozy cabin for a big family
We loved staying at this cozy cabin! Cabin description was accurate. It was small and some amenities were a bit dated but definitely had everything we needed. Very charming place and would recommend to anyone as long as they are not looking for modern accommodations. Communications with owner was great. Thank you so much Linda!
Snowshoeing, x-country skiing and hiking out your back door, walking distance to restaurants, convenience store and putt-putt golf. Paddle-board rental at the marina 2 blocks away.
