Property description

Located in beautiful Carnelian Bay along the north shore of Lake Tahoe, this large home is situated high above the lake, providing both spectacular views of the lake and a quiet, relaxing location. Centrally located between Northstar, Alpine Meadows, and Squaw Valley, it's the perfect location for your family's skiing vacation this winter. It's looking to be an amazing snow season this year, so plan your trip now and enjoy not just downhill skiing, but fantastic cross-country skiing and snowshoeing, all extremely close to this location.

The home is 3,850 square feet and sleeps up to 14 guests, with plenty of room for all to spread out and enjoy themselves. New furnishings throughout the house, including all-new furniture, beds, and two new, large-screen TVs with DirecTV / DVR service.

Outside, a large deck upstairs and a smaller one downstairs were both completely rebuilt in 2015, and a new spa that seats 6 adults was added to the lower deck, overlooking the lake. Between the spa, the sauna, and a new steam shower for two, this is the perfect place for you and your guests to unwind during your vacation.

Virtually every guest tells us that they weren't expecting such great views -- the pictures just don't capture the real experience. Please do check out the video we've put together for some additional perspective. (The video button is on the top left when you're viewing the pictures.)

This home is unique on the north shore rental market due to both its views and its ability to house large groups very comfortably. With 5 bedrooms and 6 baths, each of your guests will feel like they are at home.

If you let us know when you'll be arriving, we'll have the house warmed up for you and your guests with the two fireplaces ready for some cozy relaxing!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: Bryan and Collette Cowger live in Meadow Vista, CA, and are passionate about Lake Tahoe and the experience of being here. We are delighted to share our home with you and will do everything we can to ensure your vacation here is the best it can be!

Why the Owner Chose Carnelian Bay, CA, USA:
We think that this Lakeview Retreat may be one of the nicest lake view vacation rental properties on the North Shore of Lake Tahoe. The view of the lake simply cannot be properly conveyed via pictures and must be seen in person to fully appreciate. Extensive landscaping in front with a relaxing water feature near the front door to greet you and your guests. Easy access to local dining and recreation make this one of the best locations to be on the north shore.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
With nearly all of the bedrooms containing an en suite bath, every guest to Lakeview Retreat will be entirely comfortable. There is no 'bad' bedroom here! The large deck is a perfect place to spend any portion of the day, from the sunrise over the Nevadan mountains to the relaxing last light of sunset across the lake as you sip a cocktail in the spa.
