Perfect stay at Carnelian Bay

  • 5 of 5

Loween was a super host from beginning till the end. She was very accommodating and helpful. The 3 bedrooms and 3 full baths made it easy for the 8 of us to be comfortable during our 5 night stay. The location was central to everything. We made a lot of happy memories during our stay and would love to go back sometime in the future.

Thank you Loween for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home!

good stay, recommended!

  • 4 of 5

nice clean and cozy getaway place, well decorated and lots of stuff to play with, we enjoyed our 4 nights stay very much, thanks! The heater is a bit lacking in one of the downstair bedrooms (the one with the bunker) and the upstair bedroom (the extra heater has a mandatory timer), not a big deal and everything else was perfect.

Cute, well located cabin

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in the cabin over the weekend. It's cute, comfortable, and very conveniently located close to Tahoe City, Squaw/Alpine, and Northstar. The cabin is filled with everything you need as well.

Long summer weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our adult family of 4 came from out of state for a wedding in Reno and decided to stay for a few days to enjoy Tahoe. Loreen's cabin was perfect. Less than a 1 hour drive from Reno , short walk to the lake and hiking. The cabin was great too...cozy, clean and plenty of room. Our family enjoyed hanging out on the deck as well. Thanks Loreen for sharing your home with us.
