Property description

North Tahoe Heaven


Our internet friendly, non-smoking mountain home has wonderful Tahoe ambience: old-style heavy-beamed architecture, knotty pine interior, two big decks and a wall of glass that looks out through a forest of pines to the lake. Antiques, artifacts of mountain living, lodge-style furniture, and beautiful prints and paintings all add to the feeling that you have arrived at a better place.

With a 40 foot great room, our Heaven is completely comfortable for groups of ten. At the same time, single couples have also told us how enjoyable it is to spend time in such a spacious environment. Moreover, our rates are low because we were fortunate enough to buy this house years ago, before Tahoe real estate prices tripled.

Summer or winter, activities are close at hand. Walk to the lake, or to our gorgeous homeowner’s club with pool, volleyball court and tennis courts. One block up are trailheads for hiking or mountain biking into the national forest. Seven ski areas, multiple golf courses, boating, parasailing and Nevada gambling are all just a short -- and breathtaking -- drive away. At night, snuggle up to fireplace (wood provided, naturally) or walk outside and marvel at the Milky Way, the blazing moon and shooting stars.

Children will spend hours in our tree fort, complete with sliding pole and its own deck! Five blocks up from Highway 28, we’re free of vehicle noise. Few cars come up our road, and children can play safely to their heart's content. Sleds and saucers, legos, toys and games can provide day-long children’s entertainment.

While brimming with old Tahoe charm, our home has every modern amenity. High speed wireless internet service is available. The kitchen is fully out-fitted, and the appliances are new. Three TV's including a flat-screen HD TV, VCRs and DVD players are available for your entertainment. A washer and dryer are on site. A library of children's videos is available for your use. Our four bedrooms provide two queen and six single beds, with a queen sleeper sofa available in the great room. Linens are provided, and out on deck our Weber gas grill is ready to cook up your favorite meals.

So leave those work boots behind, and come to Heaven. Come up to sunny days, clean mountain air, and the freedom to do nothing more than enjoy the thrill of being at Tahoe.

Great hiking trails, including access to the Tahoe Rim Trail, are accessible from our house - no need to drive to a trail head. In summer, our pool and tennis courts are within walking distance and the closest beach is about one miles away. In winter, snow sledding can be done in our yard or hills nearby. Northstar, Alpine Meadows and Squaw Valley ski areas are all within an easy, scenic drive.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1992

About the owner: Hi, I am a writer and wood worker in Auburn California.

Why the Owner Chose Carnelian Bay, CA, USA:
We bought this house because the living area has great old Tahoe style, lots of windows and a quiet, private location. It's only one block to many hiking trails, and a block in the other direction to the pool. Skiing and water sports are nearby, and Nevada casinos are only 3 miles away.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The living area upstairs is completely open with a vaulted ceiling supported by huge solid pine beams. It's a great space to be in whether we have lots of visitors or I'm there by myself.
