Overview

About the property

5 Bedroom, 6 Bath, Perfect for Large Familes, Ideal Location!

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. This home is now available only for summer rentals, and there are still a couple of weeks left for the 2017 summer season.

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. Up to 8 adults, with up to 6 kids, is the ideal group. 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 after a day of Lake Tahoe fun.

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.

About Bryan Cowger

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!

Bryan Cowger purchased this house in 2014

Why Bryan Cowger chose Lake Tahoe North Shore CA

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 views 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 in the summer. Easy access to local dining and recreation make this one of the best locations to be on the north shore.

What makes this house unique

With all 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.

The view was amazing!

  • 5 of 5

14 of us were very comfortable in the newly remodeled Lakeview Retreat. The views were the best part. Loved sitting on the shady deck to eat dinner and to watch the sun rise every morning. Convenient to everything. Would highly recommend.

Spectacular Views of Tahoe

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home! Plenty of room for our family and each room had its own bathroom. Great kitchen to cook in and we had dinner on the deck overlooking the lake every night. Clean, well kept, updated, we couldn't have asked for more. Host did a great job communicating with us which we greatly appreciated. Would highly recommend.

Great Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing house in a fantastic location, close to Tahoe City, King's Beach, and Truckee. Waking up every morning to the great views of he lake from the bedrooms and large deck was fantastic. House was very spacious with all the added amenities you would expect. Workout room was an added bonus.

Bryan was great to work with and very thorough. He kept in contact our entire stay and made everything easy. Would highly recommend this property.

Thanks for everything!

Grade A Tahoe View

  • 5 of 5

This is my families second year in a row visiting Tahoe and this house specifically. The upgrades they've done are terrific. Having 5 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms is fantastic when you've got Great-Grandparents, Grandparents, the "Kids" and the Kids kids. It was warm up there late June, I'd say the only thing the house needs is a whole house fan to suck in the cooler air from outside. Other than that, top notch all around.

A spacious and restful retreat with a view that takes your breath away!

  • 5 of 5

The snow was high and piled up, making the view from each large window breathtaking! Each room was cozy & well set up. The fireplaces kept us warm in the multiple gathering places. The added sauna, steam shower & hot tub were enjoyed! The owner was very helpful & available. It's definitely a place we'd recommend!

Christmas 2016 experience of a life time

  • 5 of 5

We spent our first family Christmas away from home! The house was more than what the pictures showed and fit our family of eight perfect. Bryan, the owner, made the experience so easy, without any problems. The view was awesome! I wish I could have figured out a way to take it home. A picture will never do it justice. I would recommend this experience for anyone. We would go back in a heartbeat!
