Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, Sleeps 5

From ski trails to stand-up paddleboarding, thigh-burning hikes to decadent breakfasts at renowned eateries, experience all there is to love about Lake Tahoe in this elegant 2-bedroom, 1.5-bathroom home located on Highway 28.

Nestled under tall evergreens on the northern end of the lake in Carnelian Bay, this vacation rental boasts gorgeous mountain views and proximity to exciting outdoor activities.

Enjoy your beautiful natural surroundings from the privacy of two large decks: one lets you take in lush greenery while grilling up your favorite dishes while the other lets you sink into a hot tub that faces North Lake Blvd and overlooks the mountains beyond and views of the lake!

Attention to detail throughout means every room has the charm of a home-away-from-home. Plush bedding, comfortable sofas, abundant seating and Tahoe-style décor lend this home luxury, comfort and character.

INSIDE THE HOUSE

True Tahoe spirit abounds in an open concept living area where rustic wooden furnishings are complemented by two modern leather sofas with colorful pillows. Let the sun warm you as it flows in from tall windows or light the stately stone fireplace. A large flat-screen TV lets you catch your favorite shows.

The living room is separated from a gourmet-inspired kitchen by a wood and granite bar with island seating. Dine at a round table with seating for four in a windowed nook tucked away from the living area. A chandelier hangs above from a sloped two-story plank ceiling. Downstairs, a second living area offers additional seating on brown leather couches. Please note, the TV is for video watching only and is not hooked up to cable.

Each bedroom offers quaint wooden bed frames. The first bedroom boasts a king-sized bed and a large dresser with a flat-screen TV on top. The second offers a queen bed, twin sleeper sofa, vanity dresser and views of the backyard out of a tall window. Please note, the sleeper sofa is the perfect size for children. Additionally, one of the upstairs bedrooms is locked and not available to guests.

THE LOCATION

Here, you’re steps away from Lake Tahoe legends. Famous breakfast joint The Old Post Office, waterfront Gar Woods Pier & Grill and mouthwatering CB’s Pizza are all within walking distance.

Tee-off on the mini golf course or channel your inner pinball wizard at the nearby arcade. Across the street from this home you’ll find a dog-friendly beach and Watermans Landing, where you can rent a kayak or stand-up paddleboard to truly explore Lake Tahoe.

In the winter, you’ll enjoy easy access to miles upon miles of trails at several nearby peaks. Squaw Valley, Alpine Valley, Northstar, Diamond Peak and Mount Rose are just some of the slopes you can hit once snow falls.

Great location, a little noisy

  • 3 of 5

Pros: Great location, walking distance to kayak rental, breakfast and putt putt golf. Beautiful furniture in nice open great room. Very clean, comfortable beds. Lots of blankets towels and sheets. Thanks for stocking coffee...much appreciated.

Cons: TV/cable hard to work...frequent resets occur in middle of movies, hot tub jets didn’t work correctly . Stock pepper, please. Although not owners fault, caution this is right on main road, and frequent traffic makes it really noisy, couldn’t leave windows open for mountain air. Bedrooms quiet, but noise in great room and on deck really disappointing

This house feels like a home from the moment you walk in. Luxurious & comfortable at the same time! Everything you could want or need! Very comfortable beds, plenty of towels, walking distance to restaurants and activities. All in all a great stay and we would stay there again in a heartbeat!

Be Aware! You'll be locked out of upstairs bedroom

  • 3 of 5

We were frustrated and disappointed to find that guests are locked out of the upstairs bedroom. This is the room with the giant window seen in the photo of the house. There is no view of the lake from anywhere else inside the house. Sent TurnKey an email to ensure this was correct, and they replied that it's "completely off-limits at the request of the homeowner." I understand the sentiment of the homeowner, but I did feel that this should be prominently disclosed in the property description. The two available bedrooms are downstairs.

That aside, we were very happy with everything else. The house was immaculately clean. Hotel-style shampoo, conditioner, and soap were provided. The hot tub was nice when it cooled down at night, and the sofas are big and comfy. I would definitely recommend this property to a friend, but would warn them of the fact above.

Lake Tahoe Anniversary Celebration

  • 3 of 5

Rating Details:

The property manager was more than helpful.

The vacation rental was very clean.

I was happy with the location.

I was satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.

Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental.

Reviewer Comments:

My wife and I came here for a week to celebrate our 35th anniversary. Positives: - Good location, convenient to all of North Lake Tahoe. - Upstairs common area roomy with nicely equipped kitchen. - Common area HD TV with cable and premium channels. - Fenced in backyard. - Two upstairs decks are very nice. - Hardwood floors. - Large capacity washer/dryer. - Air conditioning (but downstairs is much cooler than upstairs). - On demand hot water. - Turnkey staff try to be helpful when contacted by phone. Negatives: -Mildly deceptive advertising: The house has an upstairs master bedroom and bath that are inaccessible to renters. The home is really 3 BR, 2.5 bath but renters only have access to 2 downstairs bedrooms (with views of the ugly backyard), one full downstairs bath and one upstairs half bath. So no lake views (you feel like you are staying in the "kids rooms"). - The backyard is not well taken care of and usable space is minimal. - The road next to the house is private - residents on road are not happy about renters walking up. - House is right on Highway 28 so traffic noise can be loud at most times of the day. - There is a TV downstairs but it doesn't work! - There is supposed to be a sound system for the upstairs common room TV but it is missing. - Instructions for the (Turnkey) internet in the preview email did not work. - The kitchen sink faucet is partly broken. - Umbrella on upstairs deck was broken (but we fixed it!). - Upholstery for upstairs sofa(s) needs cleaning. - Turnkey staff could not get things straight as for late checkout. I will add that some of the problems listed above (e.g., backyard, deceptive advertising, downstairs TV) have been mentioned in previous reviews and/or known to Turnkey staff and have not been addressed.

Reviewer Comments:

The property was nice. Good location .It was nice that we could bring our dog. I think there should be a better detailed list of what is in the house/amenities (ie-I brought my blow dryer as it wasn't listed as included but was). There needed to be more 'stock' items in the kitchen and more organized in the shelves (messy). There are really only 2 bedrooms downstairs (felt dark and like a basement/dungeon-like) which sleeps 4. The open concept living space was nice and deck w/hot tub a plus.

Nice house, not a great location

  • 3 of 5

Sits on a very busy and noisy road. Hot tub was dirty but the house was spotless! And oddly, the master bedroom was locked off which, was the only room that had a view of the lakeside. And no direct Lake access. The house was nice, but probably would not stay here again. However, loved the ease of check in and check out with turn key!
