Overview

About the property

Check-out OUR 5-STAR REVIEWS! and the Guestbook Comments! Guests love the special touches and you will too! The Cozy Cottage is perfect for a family getaway or a group of friends. Explore the trails nearby, visit with the locals, sit on the deck or hit the slopes or the beach...great location!

What's NEW at THE COZY COTTAGE? We've added a Hot Springs HOT TUB with a salt system (reduce chlorine odor)...for your soaking pleasure after a long day of hiking or skiing! Enjoy!

Visiting Lake Tahoe for some REST AND RELAXATION? Is it a SPECIAL OCCASION? Just need some FRESH MOUNTAIN AIR? Or some GREAT OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES?

Whatever the reason, see how quickly you slip into the comforts of MOUNTAIN LIVING when you step inside THE COZY COTTAGE.

From the moment you open the front door, you feel so welcome, stepping into the CHIC DINING AREA AND KITCHEN. Complete with vaulted ceilings, the Dining Area includes a table that seats 6, while the Kitchen is immediately adjacent. Completely stocked with all the necessities, the Kitchen boasts a farm-style sink, marble counter tops, stainless appliances, including gas stove and microwave. The BUTCHER BLOCK ISLAND makes wine and cheese hour and/or food preparation easy and even has seating for 2. Large windows throughout these areas make it extra airy and bright.

Sliding glass doors open to the WRAP AROUND DECK where you'll find the gas BBQ grill, a supply of wood for the fireplace and a sunny spot for coffee in the morning. Hardwood floors run in the public areas of the Main Level (bedrooms are carpeted).

An UNEXPECTED SURPRISE is our sneak-peek VIEW OF LAKE TAHOE! Looking out from the deck or the Great Room or the Master Bedroom, we have our own piece of the beautiful lake. Looking out over the trees and seeing the lake makes you know you're in the mountains!

The GREAT ROOM is just off the Dining Area and Kitchen. The Great Room brings the word 'cozy' to The Cozy Cottage! Furnished with two sofas that set right in front of the beautiful STONE WOOD BURNING FIREPLACE (wood provided; regular heat also), this is a great space to sit and read a book, look at the sneak-peek of the Lake or enjoy nice conversation with family and friends. The large coffee table is just waiting for a game of cards, checkers or a crazy board game. Large windows with sliding glass doors open to the BACK DECK where you'll find the HOT TUB, patio table and 6 chairs and a couple of chaise lounges (summer)...the perfect area for getting some fresh air and soaking up some mountain sun!

The ENTERTAINMENT CENTER is in the Great Room, complete with a big screen TV (satellite provided), DVD player and surround sound system. For those who need to stay 'connected,' WiFi is provided as well as an Ethernet cable to go without WiFi.

The Cozy Cottage offers three BEDROOMS...all are super warm and comfy. The MASTER BEDROOM is located on the Main Level and consists of one Queen size bed and has a full bathroom with tub/shower combination just across the hall. Wake-up each morning looking out the large picture window that looks out at the trees and see a sneak peek of Lake Tahoe. The SECOND BEDROOM is on the Main Level and is furnished with two twin beds. These beds can be converted into one King bed at your request. The full bathroom on the Main Level is right next to this bedroom. The THIRD BEDROOM is on the Second Level and has one Queen bed. This bedroom has its own flat screen television and DVD player. Right next to the bedroom is the second full bathroom with a beautifully tiled walk-in shower.

BATHROOMS: The home provides two beautiful full bathrooms; one on the Main Level (shower/tub combination) and one of the Second Level (walk-in shower).

Your PET IS ABSOLUTELY WELCOME! The Cozy Cottage is in a very pet friendly neighborhood. Walk around the neighborhood or use the trails and go for a swim in the reservoir after a short hike. Don't be surprised if you get a visit at the front door from a neighborhood dog coming to see who they get to play with. Pets may not be left alone in the house or on the deck unless crated.

SPECIAL TOUCHES include Ralph Lauren and Coyuchi organic cotton sheets and towels, organic starter soaps packaged in 100% recycled paper, incandescent full spectrum light bulbs, tree-free hangers made from 100% recycled paper, all natural laundry soap (no dryer sheets), and all natural cleaning products are used by cleaning crew. And the NEW Hot Springs HOT TUB has a salt water system that helps to reduce chlorine odor and feel.

LOCAL CONTACT: Very unique when compared to most vacation rentals....our Property Manager handles only a small number of select properties in order to give one-on-one personalized service from inquiry to 'see you again soon' and lives just minutes away from The Cozy Cottage...handy should you need anything while you're here.

LOCATION...LOCATION...LOCATION...The Cozy Cottage is situated on the mountain above the lake in Carnelian Bay (between Tahoe City and Kings Beach) and is in a lovely neighborhood just minutes away from all of that Lake Tahoe has to offer...beaches, golfing, hiking and biking in the summer...world class ski resorts (Squaw Valley, Alpine, Northstar, Homewood, Diamond Peak, Mt. Rose), XC ski trails, sledding hills, snowshoe trails in the winter...and great restaurants, shops and casinos year-round. The neighborhood has exclusive access to some of the greatest hiking/biking/XC/snowshoe trails in North Lake Tahoe. Or just walk around the block to see one of the most amazing lake views in all of Lake Tahoe!

Go to the Free Concerts at Commons Beach on Sunday (bring a picnic). The best to-go sandwiches are at the PDQ Market in Tahoma and the Uncommon Kitchen in Tahoe City (at New Moon Health foods).

Ride or walk the bike path from Tahoe City to Squaw Valley. Tube the Truckee River to River Ranch and have an ice cream! Best Mexican? Los Panchitas! Best Italian? Lanza's...both in Kings Beach!

Why Owner/Property Manager chose Lake Tahoe North Shore CA

We bought this house after leasing it for several winters many years ago. Whenever we stayed we hated to leave the amazing view and homey feel, so when we decided to buy in Tahoe this was the house we really wanted and feel so lucky to own it now. We enjoy the ambiance year round with a view that can't be beat, plus nice trees and plush lawn for lots of outdoor enjoyment. We love the many trails that are so close by, so you hardly have to leave the neighborhood to have fun and exercise. But it is so convenient to all that Tahoe has to offer being located between Tahoe City and Kings beach. It was recently remodeled with beautiful wood and stone details, nice bright kitchen and bamboo floors.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Luxurious getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this home. There were 7 of us total and we fit cozily into the cabin, which has clearly been well maintained and seems to have been updated recently. In addition, there were plenty of pots and pans to cook with and the kitchen was quite spacious. The balcony had a beautiful view of the lake and the outdoor hot tub was so welcoming after a day of snowshoeing and hiking. We got caught in a bit of a storm, but there were plenty of shovels to get our cars out, and thanks to the instructions provided by the owner and her generosity, we were able to get out just fine.

Great Cabin for Family Get-away

  • 5 of 5

The cozy cottage was perfect for our family get-away to the snow. Our two young children (ages 6 and 9) loved playing outside the cabin in the snow, and we all enjoyed reading, playing games, drinking hot cocoa and watching TV by the fire. The cottage is close to trails in the woods, so we were able to snow shoe into the forest and go sledding! We did not bring our dogs, but it would have been perfect for them, also. The owner is super nice and she left us wine and chocolate. The kitchen was fully stocked and we enjoyed cooking and baking in it. We highly recommend the cottage for a fun snowy get-away!

The place to stay in Carnelian Bay

  • 5 of 5

This is my second review for the Cozy Cottage. I guess the best reference for this place is coming back again. Another great stay - Melanie is a great host.

The appointments are excellent in this house. We used the hot tub, barbeque, and kitchen - all are very nice. Key for us is the proximity to hiking trails (we bring our dog along for the fun), and location, as it's easy to get to a number of Tahoe restaurants and facilities.

The quiet, the view, and the facilities are all top notch. If that is your recipe for fun, you will like the Cozy Cottage as well.

Wonderful stay in the cozy cottage

  • 5 of 5

Four adults and our two small dogs stayed in the cozy cottage over the 4th of July holiday and enjoyed quiet, sunny mornings on the deck, hot afternoons playing board games and reading in the living room and cool nights in the hot tub. The cottage was very well appointed and perfectly sized for two couples for an extended weekend. Location was great - an easy drive in Tahoe City for restaurants and shopping.

Map

Enjoy a sneak peek of the lake and mountains from master bedroom and deck. About 3 blocks from fabulous hiking, mountain biking and even a small reservoir for fishing and maybe a swim for you or certainly your dog in the summer. Winter brings snowshoeing, cross-country skiing and sledding on those same trails. Mid-way between Tahoe City and Kings Beach, so convenient to all ski areas and activities around the lake.
