Beautiful cabin in the woods with remodeled kitchen, hot tub and great yard for relaxing. One of the nicest settings at the lake. Beaches and ski resorts are all in close proximity, as well dining and shopping. Come and enjoy!

The space

Beautiful, quiet setting on a half acre lot. The home has been nicely decorated with peeler log accents, updated kitchen and bathrooms and maintained in a "pride of ownership" condition. Outside is a park like setting with flagstone walkways, wrap around decks, a hammock, BBQ patio and a large spa. The horseshoe pit can't be missed! This home is the meaning of "mountain comfort". Come and Enjoy!

Carnelian Bay is situated 1/2 way between Tahoe City and Kings Beach on the beautiful North Shore of Lake Tahoe, just a few minutes to all of the best ski resorts in Lake Tahoe, the beaches and the nightlife at the casinos. Ski at Northstar, Alpine Meadows, Squaw Valley or Homewood just a few miles away.

Bring the bikes, kayaks, sun tan lotion, skis and snowboards and be prepared for a great summer or winter vacation in one of the best cabins at the Lake. If its cold or you want to enjoy a glass of champagne to celebrate, don't forget to take a dip in the hot tub. Enjoy!

WIFI, large screen TV, Blu-Ray DVD Player and IPod stereo for your enjoyment. Additional HDTV in Master BR. Bring the kids, books, bikes and for those that dare, take a drive around the lake or tour parts of the Tahoe Rim Trail.


Guest access

Guests have access to the full cabin, hot tub and beautiful grounds and deck for relaxation. In winter we normally store away the patio furniture and BBQ Grill as the grounds will hopefully be covered with snow.

Interaction with guests

We interact with guests as much or as little as needed.

Other things to note

In the winter upon snowfall of 4 inches or more our snow plow service will plow the driveway generally the same day or within 24 hours. This may cause the Guest to have to use the snow shovel provided and shovel around parked vehicles in order to depart or park safely. This is normal and expected for Lake Tahoe residents. Be certain to carry chains and good all-season tires. An AWD/4WD vehicle is preferred in the winter.

Great location! We were able to get to anything we wanted to do within 10 minutes and we love being in the hills! For any fitness types, the neighborhood is amazing for hill runs!

John and Karen have a beautiful home in the woods that felt like home after a day of hiking, lounging at Kings Beach or kayaking on Lake Tahoe. The area is quiet and peaceful. Family friendly and welcoming. Make sure you spend some time relaxing in the hammock. A perfect Fourth of July week. Thank you.

John's cabin was a great place to stay for our family trip to Tahoe, and we'd stay there again. It felt cozy and spacious at the same time. The place was very clean, and we appreciated having laundry in the cabin (useful when traveling with a young child) and lots of kitchen appliances & tools. Great fireplace/wood stove, too. The cabin is within 15 minutes' drive of both Tahoe City & King's Beach, so there are plenty of restaurants and big grocery stores nearby. Be aware that while the hot tub is in the yard, it does require trekking through the snow to get to it during the winter. On the downside, the internet connection in the house was very spotty and required constant resetting. (Sounds like this was unusual for the house, and John was helpful by phone in explaining how to reset it and says he's already planning to call the provider to check into getting it fixed.) On the plus side, John was very responsive about it and about quickly coming by when needed to fix an unforeseen problem (snow & ice sliding off the roof and breaking a window). It felt good to know that while John wasn't going to surprise us, he was close enough to come by if something required his attention.

John's cabin was great for a small group of people to visit Tahoe. It is conveniently close to multiple northern Tahoe ski resorts and has everything you need from a place to store your ski's, washer/dryer, and a hot tub for your sore muscles.

My wife Karen and I are now retired and enjoying the Lake Tahoe lifestyle all four seasons. I'm trying to improve my golfing skills while she's an avid hiker and biker. We have three grown sons all pursuing their careers in the SF Bay Area, where all of us grew up. We love to travel in the off seasons and are looking forward to visiting airbnb properties in Europe, South America and Asia the next few years, while keeping our home base here in the Sierras. If we find a better place we'll let you know, but after all these years, Lake Tahoe is tough to beat!

Come to Tahoe, relax and enjoy the finest beauty nature has to offer! If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask and we would be more than happy to point you in the right direction!
