About Katy Tufts

My husband and I love Tahoe,there has been a home in my family since 1947. I have spent every summer here growing up. We have an adult daughter currently living and working in Reno. We love to travel and the outdoors.

Katy Tufts purchased this house in 1998

Why Katy Tufts chose Carnelian Bay

This home is built by the same builder that built my family house. It's so close to ever thing and TART is just a 1 minute walk if you don't want to drive. I love to have the lake so close.

What makes this house unique

This place just fits the Tahoe lifestyle. It's comfortable, homey and casual. The perfect getaway. So much to do within walking distance. There is public transportation a 2 minute walk away.

Cozy and comfortable, great location.

We appreciated Katy’s communication leading up to our stay. The cabin is in the perfect location and has a great vibe. It is small, but our family of 5 was very comfortable. We look forward to visiting again in summer. Thank you!

Owner's Response: Mary, so glad you enjoyed your holiday at our home! We try to make it homey and comfortable for our guests. I make it a personal goal to have a well outfitted kitchen, as I enjoy cooking. You will find plenty of spices and small kitchen appliances. If you don't want to cook, I have menus from nearby resturants.

I would like to thank Kathy for the lovely stay at your cabin. It was people and dog friendly. The house even has dog bowls and leashes if you forget yours. The front patio was a wonderful place for us to enjoy the rain. The cabin is cozy with all the comforts of home and just a short walk to the beach. We have never been to the North Shore, we always stay at the South Shore. We love the North Shore and will be coming back. Thanks again for a clean cabin.

Charming lakeside retreat, with walking distance to beach and restaurants.

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful retreat from the heat. Great location and close to beach and restaurants. Perfect location for walking. If you are a foodie, the kitchen is very well stocked with pans and supplies for cooking. Love the decor of the cabin which highlights the Tahoe environment and the history of the area. Thanks for the delightful stay!

Charm with convenience

  • 5 of 5

This was an excellent choice. Clean, well stocked and dog friendly.

It is close to the beach (dogs welcome) and only yards from a great breakfast place.

Thanks Katy!
