Agate Bay is a highly desired residential area that has retained the beauty and serenity of the Tahoe basin. There are lots of open spaces in this neighborhood that boasts nice homes on large forested lots. Located 6 miles east of Tahoe City and 2 miles west of Kings Beach near Carnelian Bay. North Lake Tahoe has minimal traffic, with none of the crowds, congestion, and commercialism of the south shore. (There is not a single traffic signal for an 8-mile stretch of the North Shore, where this home is located!) Our family has had other homes in Agate Bay for almost 40 is without a doubt one of the best locations in the Tahoe basin!

The neighborhood is quiet, very friendly and great for walking. The cabin is only 2 blocks from National Forest Land, where you will find a wonderful walking or biking trail through the woods to Patton Beach on Carnelian Bay. Or one can hike or mountain bike uphill through the forest to Brockway Summit for panoramic lake views and access to a maze of Forest Service roads! In the winter, cross-country, snow shoeing and skiing is right outside your door.

There is ample parking in the driveway for 3 cars or 2 cars and a boat. Three boat-launching ramps are within a 6-mile drive of Agate Bay. Sand Harbor is a scenic 20 minute drive and hosts a fourth boat ramp.

In closing we would like to say that as owners of this home we have made every attempt to make this cabin as user friendly as possible. We love to have a good time and this house is conducive to this mindset of ours. It is a fun, warm, cozy cabin with great amenities. If you choose our home for your next vacation we feel confident you will come away with memories that will last for years to come!!! PLEASE DO CHECK OUR AVAILABILITY CALENDAR AS IT IS KEPT UP TO DATE:)

Parents and brother also have homes in Agate Bay just two blocks away. So If your planning a reunion or just need more space we can check availability on those cabins for you.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Greg,

We just wanted to thank you for letting us stay at your beautiful Tahoe cabin. We really enjoyed ourselves and felt so comfortable at your place. Drinking coffee out on the deck was most relaxing. We hope to be able to stay there again. Agate Bay is really a terrific area!

Thanks again,

Hi Guys,

Your website is great! There is all the information one needs to decide to stay there. There is more information for your place than I've ever seen. I was going to take a trip to Whidbey Island, WA, but now seeing your website, I may make different arrangements. Hi to all!

Delightful !

  • 4 of 5


Great location, master suite is sweet, everyone enjoys a hot tub and lets not forget the upstairs deck...great for a morning's tea!

Highly recommend opening all the windows in the evening for the cool mountain air.

If you have any questions, Tess is immediately available. Thank you for putting me/us at ease.

6 family members across 3 generations resided in this rustic upscale mountain lake cabin from August 8 thru 13 2018 while attending a family wedding....which we later discovered was just a 10 min walk thru the woods to the wedding site (Farah Fawcett's once residence).

We actually ended up staying at hotel. Cabin was not clean. it was musty and damp and my father had severe allergies while inside. The cable didn't work and a window was left open so it was cold.. I believe this property is mis-represented. This cabin is far from "cozy"

Owner's Response: We are very sorry to hear you didn't feel the cabin was up to par. We are very responsive owners and had we been contacted we would have addressed the issues you mention. You don't say what wasn't clean? Our housekeepers clean after every guest and freshen if more than a week goes by before next check in. We have excellent reviews and our guest happiness is very important to us! I am curious why you would book a cabin where pets are welcome if you Dad has such severe allergies? No other guests mentioned the cable being out or we would have addressed it. It's unfortunate you didn't contact me as we respond ASAP

My family rented this cabin for a weekend getaway. There were 6 adults and 2 children. It was perfect. Close to North Star ski resort. Nice quiet neighborhood. Great communication with the owners. I was very pleased.

Loved the location

  • 5 of 5

This house was great for our stay...upsides; location, hot tub, master seperated from the house

Downsides; hard to control the heating, several spiders in sinks and tubs, no bathroom on top floor

This was a great house for our family loved that the master was seperated from the rest of the house and the hot tub was just outside however upon arrival I was greeted with a face of cobwebs and several spiders in the sinks and tubs. I chalked that up to it being the first snow of the year and they just wanted to be warm. My kids on the other hand were freaked out by it. The heating was hard to control it seemed hot then cold one room cooked the other froze one slept with door open one closed. The master had a great gas fireplace but again seemed to cook you out of the room . My husky loved the upstairs patio and he hung out there most of the time we were home. All in all it was a great time!
