About the property

Cabin, 5 Bedrooms + Loft, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

Our fully remodeled (in 2016) luxury mountain cabin retreat with heavy interior beams and all knotty pine interior features 5 bedrooms + loft, and 3 full baths. Warm up by the fire after a full day of skiing, boating, biking or hiking, with views of the gorgeous forest.

The cabin has been recently remodeled, featuring a new designer kitchen with stainless steel Viking appliances, remodeled baths, a spa room (complete with jetted flagstone tub and sauna), free WiFi, large flat screen TV's, log beds, and new Restoration Hardware bedding.

Not only is this property relaxing and luxurious, it also has plenty of things to do for the kids, and the kids at heart. With a pool table, sleds, Wii and board games, the kids will always have something to do.

Just a short walk takes you to the sunny shores of Patton Beach (dog-friendly), hiking trails, kayaking, miniature golf, as well as local restaurants!

Our retreat is located 10-20 minutes from major ski resorts (Northstar, Alpine, Squaw Valley and Homewood for cross country, snowmobiling, ice skating and sledding), and several golf courses. During the summer you can also go horseback riding, waterskiing, wakeboarding, fishing, rock climbing, bicycling, snorkeling and of all things.... YOU CAN REST (You're on Lake Time now!)

About Kate & Garrett

We bought our home in Lake Tahoe in 2010 and immediately started renovating and remodeling the home, bringing all the luxuries of home, to the 'Cabin.' We fell in love with Lake Tahoe years ago, while renting a home near the lake for our summer vacation. While we have traveled all over the world, we've found that Lake Tahoe is one of our favorite places to be! Owning this home is our dream come true, and we look forward to sharing it with your family!

Kate & Garrett purchased this cabin in 2010

Why Kate & Garrett chose Carnelian Bay

Nothing beats the crystal blue waters of the lake, and the crisp, clean air! Skiing at Homewood growing up, Kate fell in love with the small town feel of Lake Tahoe and the friendly people.

What makes this cabin unique

What we love about our home: EVERYTHING! We have a great game room with a Pool Table, Popcorn Machine, seating, a big screen TV and more! A great time for family and friends! We also have a SPA room, complete with whirlpool tub for 2 and a 6 person Sauna! Even more, our new addition of the luxurious stacked stone fireplace is ultimately my favorite part of the home. Snuggling up with a good book next to the fire with a great view of the treetops is spectacularly relaxing!

Furthermore, our home is only two blocks from the beach! In the summer time, when parking is so limited, we can walk to Patton Beach and rent kayaks or a boat. It's close to shopping, restaurants, and the world-famous Garwoods Bar & Grill. In the winter, we're about 10 minutes from Northstar-at-Tahoe, and 15 minutes from Squaw! We're also very close to Incline Village and a short 7 minute drive to Tahoe City for shopping!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Whit's End is the perfect place to disconnect and unwind from the pace of city life. The cabin and the outdoor living space is top notch. Very clean and furnished first class. We stayed six nights but wish it could of been ten. Our son liked the dart board and pool table and the neighborhood was perfect for leisurely walks in the evening. Kate and Garrett are wonderful people to deal with and we are looking very forward to our next stay.

Great vacation at Whit's End!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this beautiful property. We've stayed here multiple times and Kate is a wonderful host. Truly cares about her guests and checks in multiple times throughout your stay (not obnoxious though). The beds are super comfy, the layout is perfect for 14 guests without feeling too crowded, which is a pretty big feat. The kitchen is well stocked and the hot tub and sauna are a must. We played pool every night and had a wonderful time walking down to the lake (about a 3 minute walk). It's the perfect location!

Whit's Landing is a great house at a great location.

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time staying at Whit's Landing. We love the house and location and the owner is easy and reasonable to work with. It's just a 5-minute walk to a great beach with kayaking and paddle boards available to rent, and less than 10-minute walk to Gar Woods restaurant. The house is great for family vacations, plenty of room and a great big refrigerator. Check out is easy too, not a bunch of work on your last day. Highly recommend this house.

First week of June visit.

Spacious and well designed for family fun. Not quite as clean as I like, but no one else seemed to mind. Weather was perfect. Location is perfect!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. I'm sorry the home wasn't as clean as you'd like. We had just finished up construction right before your arrival so there may have been a few spots that our housekeepers missed. I am a clean freak so I understand that can be frustrating. I will make sure I walk through the house this week to make sure it's spotless for our next guests.

Conveniently located in Agate Bay (between Kings Beach and Tahoe City) is just 2 short blocks to the lake. This north shore Lake Tahoe luxury cabin rental is situated on over a half acre of land and is nestled next to a forest land parcel.

Located 2 blocks from the lake, our cabin is located in a quiet wooded area great for walking in the afternoons, taking in the mountain air. Northstar-at-Tahoe Resort is the closest skiing/snowboarding and is a 10 minute drive from our cabin. Alpine and Squaw are about 20 minutes away by car.

There are plenty of gourmet restaurants nearby, less than 1 mile away from the cabin. Safeway & Starbucks are only 3 miles away.
