About Jimme & Stephanie Salomonsen

Born and raised in the St. Paul, Minnesota area, we started dating right out of high school and were married 5 years later. Traveling full time for work (journeyman lineman); Iowa, Nebraska, Illinois, Missouri, Hawaii, and throughout California, we have always made our way back to Tahoe for relaxation and a peace of mind. We continue to travel full time in our 5th wheel with our beloved basset hound. We hope that you are able to enjoy our home as much as we do for your vacation needs.

Jimme & Stephanie Salomonsen purchased this house in 2014

Why Jimme & Stephanie Salomonsen chose Carnelian Bay

We instantly fell in love with this home because of the large front deck that over looks the lake, the beautiful french doors, the centralized North Shore location and how it reminded us both of the homes we grew up in back in Minnesota. Both being active alpine skiers, the centralized location to NorthStar, Squaw and Alpine Meadows (not to mention a short drive to Heavenly Resort) was a major plus. We love how the home is close to Tahoe City and Kings Beach, yet you feel like you are in your own secluded area set amongst the powerful trees. The open floor plan brings people together instead of separating them into various rooms. This is a home where memories are made.

*Please note there are many stairs up to the house (20-25), and the driveway is very steep. During winter rentals, we advise a all wheel drive vehicle or 4x4.

What makes this house unique

All the little areas to sit and relax amongst the property make it so easy to rejuvenate. No matter where you go on the property, you can find a place to sit in the sun or next to a fire. The hot tub will melt all your stress away. We love animals and fully believe that they are a part of the family! This home is pet friendly (after all, they need a vacation too, right?). Open floor plan, hot tub, full kitchen, 4 bed room (california king, california king, queen, sleep number queen, queen pull-out couch), 4 bathrooms, (each bed room has it's own en-suite bathroom), sleeps 10 in beds, walk in showers, bath tub, laundry, large wrap around deck, stove fire place, full kitchen with new appliances, wine cooler, grill, pet friendly, wifi, cable, lake views, residential neighborhood, covered parking, on & off street parking, multiple onsite outdoor living areas, active wild life, centralized lake location, close to many hiking trails and walking distance to the lake, located between NorthStar & Squaw Valley Resorts, 40 min from Heavenly Village at South Shore, within 45 min to Mt Rose, Diamond Peak, Tahoe Donner, Boreal, Soda Springs, Sugar Bowl, Alpine Meadows, & Homewood, 20 Min from Truckee. Whether it's Spring, Summer, Winter or Fall, this home has it all for your vacation needs.

Awesome House with Lots of Room and Amenities

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Jimme and Stephanie's home over labor day weekend with friends and a few dogs. Firstly, the setup of the house is great-- an en suite bathroom for every bedroom, which is incredibly convenient. In addition, the house was dog friendly, which was important for us, with dog bowls, treats and dog runs available. Lastly, the amenities really made the trip, especially the grill, hot tub and fire pit! We did have an issue with one of the upstairs bathrooms not working, but Jimme/Stephanie were very responsive and immediately sent someone over to fix it. Overall, a fantastic trip, super convenient to Waterman's Landing and Tahoe City, but secluded enough for everyone to hang out and unwind. Will definitely try to be back next summer or for ski season!

The home lived up to all of our expectations, and more! It was perfect for our extended family--the four bedrooms with their own private baths worked great. The deck was wonderful as a place for our meals together, and the Stephenson's obviously really worked at making our experience wonderful, which it was. They extended our times when they could because all the dates that were originally offered by the website as it turned out weren't available. So if you choose this property you will have some wonderful hosts that will do their best to make your experience wonderful. It's an experience we would like to repeat! All of our family felt the same way.

I can't say enough how wonderful this home is! My *now* husband and I came here to relax and celebrate our honeymoon. The attention to detail and personal touches made it that much more special. The view off the front deck is absolutely stunning! The location is perfect, with so many shops and restaurants just a short drive away. We can't thank you enough Salomonsen family!!

This rental house came with everything you would ever need.

  • 5 of 5

We met our family from California and Colorado at this rental home. This home had everything you would ever need. We all had our own bedroom and bathroom. My daughter was able to bring her medium-sized dog. We all ate together in the large dining area and enjoyed the living room after our days filled with adventures. I was surprised by all the extras that were provided. We certainly enjoyed our stay at Tahoe and would like to thank our hosts for making this such a hassle-free vacation. Our daughter was able to get into the home early which was also a very nice plus. My husband said the property was very nice and he enjoyed it immensely. A big thank you to our hosts!

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Great location with plenty of space. My wife and I spent our honeymoon there and really had a great time.

The "extras" were the difference (including beach chairs).

Please just improve that cleaning crew!
