Join us for the ski season at the North Shore of Lake Tahoe. Lots to do: hiking, relaxing in the hot tubs, and playing tennis and bocci ball. Not to mention skiing at world class resorts within a 20-minute drive and many winter sports as well.
Come to our North Lake Tahoe condo, newly remodeled kitchen and both bathrooms, 1700 sq.ft., 3 BR plus loft, 3 story condo. Sleeping is a king, queen, and 2 twins. The loft has a bunk with a double bed on the bottom and a trundle. The condo sleeps seven comfortably. Entry and parking are flat, close, and easy. Cable TV and WI/FI, fully stocked kitchen, wood-burning fireplace, Blue Ray/DVD/VCR, and extra TV in the king bedroom. This is an end unit with large windows looking out at the forest.
The condo is one and a half blocks from a public beach. There one can rent kayaks and stand-up paddle boards. The complex, Carnelian Woods Townhomes, is on 90 acres of forested land on the North Shore where small towns ring the lake. For adults, there are three casinos within 20 minutes.
There are three restaurants within walking distance, including Gar Woods, as well as many attractions including hiking trails, historical houses, casinos, gondola rides at the ski resorts, shopping, Historic Downtown Truckee, and all the wonderful activities of a beautiful mountain lake area.
Professionally cleaned after every rental. We also use our condo regularly and keep it well maintained.
Come enjoy our home away from home!! The North Shore of Lake Tahoe is not to be missed!
Guests will have access depending on the time of year to hot tubs, tennis courts, parcourse, basketball court, bocce court, large heated swimming pool, clubhouse with a pool table and video machines and a large patio and barbecue available to rent.
We have a 7-11 and 3 great restaurants, including Gar Woods, within walking distance. Safeway is a 7-minute drive.
Interaction with Guests
We live 200 miles from the condo so we only communicate by email. The key for entering is in a lockbox. We have local property managers who are available if something comes up. They live 5 minutes from condo.
The neighborhood is condos and private homes. We are a 5-minute walk from Lake Tahoe with all its grandeur and beauty. We have a public beach and coffee shop at the end of our street on the lake as well as the wooden boats marina next door.
While most people will want to have a car to get to the many interesting places around the lake (and they can be rented at the airport in Reno), there is also a public transit from the airport that will deliver guests to very near the condo. There is a public bus that travels from the ski resorts around the north shore.
Other Things to Note
The condo is well located and well stocked. We have condiments and breakfast food (pancakes, syrup, oatmeal and coffee) available if you get in late the night before.
This condo is one of 125 units on 90 forested acres. We are the end unit in a 6-condo building, with one common wall. A parking permit for each car, secured at the condo office, is needed. A key card (also at the office) is needed for clubhouse, pool, and hot tubs. You can rent the large deck and have a barbecue using the club house facilities. The tennis courts have a combination lock.
We live with CCR 's and there are rules for the community. The most important include: hours and days of operation of the pool and hot tubs, quiet hours after 11:00, being respectful of other homeowners and their property.
No smoking and no pets.
We had a great stay. Nice condo in a great location. Ann was very responsive and helpful and the prepared info sheets were organized and detailed.
There was a little bit of a snafu with the access code and entering the cabin, but info sheet provided 3 contact numbers so it was quickly resolved and Ann was great about following up as well. I understand that little things like that can happen anytime, but the response and support was great. We would definitely come back again. I would definitely stay here again.
Great place and exactly as described! Ann left us detailed instructions and was very responsive. Everything at the house felt cozy and comfortable. Would definitely rent this place again. Perfect for a weekend Tahoe trip.
7of us stayed at Ann's place and it was great. It had all the amenities we needed and more. the fact that it was only about a 20min drive to Northstar was added bonus.
We had an amazing stay at Ann's condo. The place was very neat and everything arranged in order. Carnelian Bay is excellent place, very close to the lake and all amenities very close by. The instructions left in the Condo were precise and easy to understand. We wished we stayed for few more days but we had to get back to work so had to leave :(
Overall an excellent place, awesome day. Only thing that I would like to point is it took a while for me to figure out the Condo. Please do not use GPS once you enter Carnelian Bay. GPS will take you to the next block. I wish the driving directions could have been more precise with land marks, etc.
This home was amazing! Super spacious tri-level unit with everything we needed (cookware, bedding, and more!). The host, Ann, provided all the information we needed ahead of time and made me and the guests feel very welcome. Highly recommend this home!
This place is great! It's next to the lake, close to ski resorts, and is in a quiet and nice neighborhood. The house is clean, spacious and fancy. Everything on the listing is accurate. And the instructions are very clear. I loved the moving sofa chairs in the living room :)
Anns place was great! Easy drive to squaw and northstar for skiing, great size for a group of 7 girls. Ann was always prompt if anything was needed and the place had clear directions and recommendations which made everything easy. Highly recommend to anyone looking!
We are two couples and have owned this condo together for 7 years. One couple lives in Pleasant Hill and the other in Escondido, both California.
We have been going to Tahoe for many years and continue to enjoy the lake and the mountains. This is our second home and we and our families use it all year round. We have had very good experiences with renters and are pleased to share our home away from home. We have recently remodeled the bathrooms and kitchen, so all is nice and new and very comfortable.
North Lake Tahoe is a collection of small towns on the North Shore. The road surrounds the Lake, and access and traffic are good. We have casinos 15 minutes to the East (Incline, NV) and ski resorts (Squaw Valley, Alpine, Northstar) in both directions. Hiking is superb and plentiful. There are fine restaurants and casual eateries. It's a great family vacation or adult playground.
