Situated on a deep, forested lot along a seasonal creek, the sounds of the whispering creek and views of the forest and distant peaks has a relaxing affect on every visitor. Located in Carnelian Bay North Lake Tahoe, this cozy and recently redecorated cabin feels miles from the busy life, but is actually only 10 minutes from everything you need to enjoy a relaxing and easy get away. The cabin has 2 very comfortable bedrooms plus a loft with a new, high quality sleeper sofa, 2 full bathrooms (with showers). Just inside from the deck is the gas fireplace (just touch the button for heat and ambiance - beckoning you to sit and relax just a little longer) with a large flat screen TV above the mantle. Seating for up to 6 in front of the fire, or 6 - 8 at the dining table, or 6 around the deck dining table will make this a great place to connect with family and friends. Open to the fireplace, living room, and dining area, the kitchen has all new stainless appliances with a gas convection oven, and 6 burner gas stove. The deck features a 6 person dining table served from the four burner gas grill. Hi-speed internet will keep you connected during your entire stay. For those that want to disconnect, fantastic hiking trails are just up the street connecting to the Tahoe Rim Trail, or hike, bike, cross country to the back side of Northstar or the Tahoe Cross Country Ski Area. Take the hike up to Watson peak and be amazed at the incredible views of the lake all the way across to Diamond Peak, Heavenly, and Mt. Tallac. For those that want to ski or board, take heart because you are only a short 10 minutes to Northstar, 20 minutes to Incline Village, Squaw Valley, Alpine Village, or Homewood, and about an hour to Heavenly and South Lake Tahoe. Only 5 quick minutes drive to the local favorite dining/drinks: Garwoods restaurant, and 10 minutes to Kings Beach and Tahoe City. Three major super markets and several great restaurants are less than 10 minutes away. After a fun filled day of playing in the mountains or the lake, the comfortable bedrooms are ready to help you recuperate for tomorrow. One bed and one bath are located on the main entrance level, along with the entrance to the deck overlooking the forest. Featuring a spacious room with your own couch, coffee table, and library the upstairs master bedroom feels more like a suite. Also upstairs, the loft features incredible views just outside the window, or if you prefer, a large screen TV, with Roku, Apple TV, & leather recliner.

I am an outdoor enthusiast that has been enjoying the Tahoe region since I was very little. While my family has a deep history here, I'm the first to take the step to own a slice of heaven. Born in California, raised in rural Montana, then worked and lived in Alaska for several years before returning to California where I have resided for the last 20 years.
Brett purchased this Cabin in 2016
Why Brett chose Ridgewood
My father worked as a ranger at DL Bliss and Donner campgrounds right out of college. Even before that my grandfather would bring his family to Lake Tahoe to camp during the summer months. I've been told many great stories of my dad and his brothers hunting for amethyst on Mt. Tallac and catching trout in mountain streams in the 40's. My father and mother attended the winter Olympics at Squaw Valley and still recall the splendor of the competition. We have always been a family that appreciates simplicity, nature, and time together. This cabin brings all that together and I knew it was perfect the moment I stepped inside.
What makes this Cabin unique
The cabin is located on a lot that runs all the way to the creek. While it's not exactly easy to get to the creek, hearing it running when sitting on the deck in the evening with a glass of wine is simply an amazing experience. A conservancy lot is next door which means it will never be developed, so this property is quiet and relaxing and peaceful. Access to many amazing trails await those who like to explore and adventure.

Our stay was comfortable and very pleasant. Nice, quiet neighborhood.
This cabin is located in a very nice area. We were able to access many different places. The cabin was comfortable and very clean,
Cute, Cozy, Clean
This was a quaint little cabin perfect for two couples and one dog. We were in town for a Spartan race and it provided a perfect place to unwind, cook meals, and refresh after a long, eventful day.
The cabin is extremely clean and very comfortable. Brett was super responsive from the time we requested to book the cabin and he was able to accommodate a late check-out request for us when we realized the day before that we'd have a hard time making it back from the race venue in time to really check out properly. (I should mention that not only is he responsive in general---he was responsive to our check out request while being on vacation himself).
I appreciated all of the bear wires/prevention tools (which were super easy to use because Brett provided super detailed and clear instructions). We had no issues. All directions to/from the cabin, regarding the cabin, and check-in/out instructions were clearly communicated.
The fireplace worked like a charm-- we really only needed to use it for a few minutes here and there to take the chill off and it worked quickly. We also appreciated how well-stocked the kitchen was.
The beds were comfortable and the linens were nice and clean to the point where if they weren't new, they certainly felt and looked like they were.
We would definitely stay here again without hesitation. Thanks for a great cabin!
Great cabin! We enjoyed our stay very much!
Close enough to town and very peaceful.
The cabin was lovely, comfortable, well provisioned.
We found all the provisions to cook, the decor was cozy and comfortable (nicer than the photos) and we had the perfect stay. The bear wire turned out to be much easier than we feared. All the logistics worked fine, directions to the appliances were easy and Brett was incredibly quick to respond and was super helpful! Highly recommend this cabin.
Comfortable for our family of 4 and pooch. Very clean - beautiful setting.
The bear wires threw us off a bit but very easy to manage. It was a little farther from the skiing than we had hoped but luckily the traffic was light.
I stayed here with my husband and 2 young daughters and it was a perfect getaway. The neighborhood is quiet but close to amenities. My daughters loved playing in the snow on the big deck and strolling around the neighborhood. The cabin is cozy and well-stocked. The beds are super comfortable! Great get-away. We would definitely stay here again. Thank you!
