Wonderful North Tahoe site in Carnelian Bay, 3.5 miles from Tahoe City.
310 Old County Road, Carnelian Bay, CA 96140. If that doesn't work with your GPS, try "Tahoe City, CA 96145", which is right across the street.
2 Bedrooms, 1 bath. 978 sq. ft.
Some of our neighbors say we have the best view in the neighborhood. Maybe they are just being polite. I don't know; I haven't been to every house in the neighborhood, and in any event, tastes vary. But it IS a lovely view, and we like it, and we think you will, too.
Sleeps four comfortably, as long as the four of you are sleeping in only two beds.
Downstairs has a king sized bed, with: box spring - mattress - featherbed - thick pad - sheets - down comforter in a duvet - down comforter in a bedspread cover.
Upstairs has a full sized (double) bed, with: box spring - mattress - memory foam - featherbed - pad - sheets - down comforter in a duvet.
There is an extra down comforter, and several extra blankets, available should you need them.
The living room has a couch, and floor space for three, possibly five, children. I'll provide the inflatable mattresses and pillows; you provide the sleeping bags. My inflatable mattress count is three twins, two queens, and a double.
The couch is quite firm, and doesn't strike me as a great place to sleep. (Of course, the floor is even more firm.) The couch and floor is only for sleeping by children (age 15 or less).
Replete with original character and charm, this beautiful 'Old Tahoe' cabin was built in 1942, with redwood exterior and knotty pine interior. Enjoy many magnificent views of the lake and mountains from inside and outside this beautifully maintained cabin. Warm yourself on a crisp evening with a fire in the large stone fireplace. Dine before the large picture window with gorgeous lake views. Over 150 trees on the property, many of them 80-100 years old. Watch any of the premium movie channels. Relax on the furnished covered deck as small animals and birds feed from their established 'feeding rocks'.
Hike miles of trails on Forest Service land or enjoy a bike ride on the paved bike path. This 'Old Tahoe' style cabin is a couples' delight or perfect setting for a family. Located just 3.5 miles from Tahoe City's beaches, music festivals, and farmers markets. World class dining is just around the corner, as well as boutique shopping and art galleries. Close to all North Tahoe attractions.
Large living room with beautiful lake view.
Large wood-burning stone fireplace with supplied fir and almond firewood.
Formal dining table expands to seat eight.
COVERED DECK with lake view seats eight. Many places in Tahoe have decks, but ours is the only covered deck I've seen. (It's not covered with an awning--it's built into the structure of the house.) This allows you to enjoy being outdoors, without directly experiencing the effects of sun, rain, snow, or the worst of the wind. For those preferring to be out in the elements, the directly adjoining landing (which leads to the stairs) is uncovered (as is the patio, unless you're under the umbrella). (Disclaimer: the landing is small, and will seat only one.)
Slate patio with table & umbrella with four chairs, chaise lounge, and two wicker chairs and end-table.
Patio includes pond and 'feeding rocks' for birds, chipmunks, & squirrels (food provided).
Kitchen with refrigerator/freezer, microwave and stove/oven (4 burners).
Dinette off kitchen seats four.
Single bathroom with toilet, shower, and sink.
Level parking for 4 cars; can accommodate boat or RV.
Fully stocked cabin: Bedding, linens, towels, pillows, TP, paper towels, soap, BBQ gas, spices, condiments, etc.
27" TVs in living room and master bedroom; DVD in living room.
Cable with all the premium channels (8 HBO channels, 6 Showtime, 9 Cinemax, 3 Starz, 5 TMC, 6 Encore, EPIX, DISC, TLC, MTV, CNN, Lifetime, NFL Network, NFL Red Zone. . . over 200 in all). (Note further: most of the premium networks--e.g., HBO--have FREE movies on demand--e.g., "HBO On Demand". I estimate that there are about 10,000 total movies available to you this way.)
High speed internet Wi-Fi connection (130 mbps).
Kitchen includes stove/oven, microwave, Cuisinart coffee maker, Keurig coffee maker, Krups Il Cafe Duomo (cappuccino maker), coffee grinder, french press, blender, rice cooker, toaster, crock pot, waffle iron, plenty of pots and pans, dishes, glasses, cups, silverware and cooking utensils. Also many spices and a variable collection of condiments.
No washer or dryer, garbage disposer, dishwasher, bath tub, air conditioner, or land line.
DRYER SUBSTITUTE: I have a couple of collapsing clothes racks with clothes pins. These can be positioned in such a way that the supplied fan will blow the hot air from the floor heater onto the clothes, and dry most garments quite quickly.
AIR CONDITIONER SUBSTITUTE: 'Every' afternoon, there is a nice breeze moving from west to east. The house is designed such that there are windows in the upstairs bedroom on the west and east sides. Since heat rises, these windows can be opened, and the warmest air is carried out of the house. I've put a large box fan in front of the east window, to enhance and accelerate this effect.
Families and children welcome! See above for sleeping-gear information. Twenty-seven board games and puzzles (ask me to send you an inventory; maybe you can leave yours at home). Kiddie gates supplied to keep the littlest ones off the inside and outside stairs. Twenty-four family & children-oriented movies on the DVR in the living room (as of 4/1/2018). Lots of beach towels & blankets, beach chairs & chaise lounges, ice chests & tote bags and other supplies for picnics or trips to the beach. Stuffed bears, or shells and polished rocks, for the kiddies, as souvenirs of their visit to Lake Tahoe. Some places charge extra for persons above a specified limit. "Extra" children are welcome at no charge, but adults are limited to four.
Doggies and kitties also welcome! I suppose my limit is two dogs, but if you have more, and they are old, or small, or somehow otherwise reasonable, let's talk. Doggie beds provided: two large, one medium large, two medium, two small, and two tiny. I also have a large steel "wire" crate, in case your doggie is used to crate sleeping. Additionally, a supply of sheets you may spread over furniture in order that your doggies may use the furniture without worry, if that is your preference. "Puperoni" treats upon arrival, unless you specify otherwise. If you don't have a regular and effective anti-flea protocol, don't bring your pet. We all have to live here. We don't charge extra rent or cleaning for pets, nor is there an enhanced security deposit. Just be responsible, and "do unto others as you'd have them do unto you".
Smoking is OK on the patio or the deck, but not in the house. Ash trays provided.
ARRIVAL AND DEPARTURE TIMES
Check-in time, 5 pm. Check-out time, 10 am. This gives me seven hours between guests to insure that everything is in readiness for your visit. NOTE: In those cases where there is no other guest leaving the day you arrive, or arriving the day you leave, I am able to be more flexible, and TYPICALLY (meaning, not always) you can arrive, and depart, at whatever time of day is optimal for you. Of course, if other guests make a reservation after you have made yours, the 5 pm and/or 10 am times would apply.
For reservations, or questions, call (916-813-8553) or text (916-813-8553) Brian, or use the systems in place here on VRBO.
Note that during your stay, I am always available to you (day or night) by telephone or text. Please feel free to call any time.
