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

Great neighborhood among tall trees! The house was spotless and a joy to stay at, just 20 mins from Alpine/Squaw
We had a wonderful stay at your house in Carnelian Bay- it was perfect. It was clean, had all the amenities our family needed and was in a great location. John also had excellent communication prior to our stay to ensure we had everything we needed. Thank you for a great time in Tahoe and for your hospitality.
John's cabin was just perfect. It had absolutely everything we needed, was incredibly clean, and was perfect for a family getaway! The back yard is just great and provides entertainment for everyone. We'll definitely be back.
John offered his service from the time of inquiry all the way through our departure date. The cabin is beautiful and cozy. John provided adequate supplies for a getaway. I definitely would recommend this listing to my friends and family. Thank you again John for your hospitality.
Everything about this home, the owners and neighborhood was ideal except one thing: the beds. They were a combination of small (double) in the two upstairs bedrooms and/or hard, uncomfortable mattresses with at least one of them not having a boxspring. Although the rest of the cabin worked really well, was clean and well appointed, we almost rented hotel rooms just to get a good nights' sleep and ended up leaving one day earlier than planned after not sleeping well (or at all) through the night. Clearly this is not an issue for other renters who have commented here... so perhaps it is just us. On the upside: everything worked. Laundry room and "mud room" are both a big plus, especially with kids and the kitchen and living room were comfortable. Plenty of heat, easy access in and out and good off-street parking. The host (John) checked in with me after we arrived and was helpful and pleasant.
Josh - Sorry the firm mattresses didn't work for you, all of our prior guests with one exception appreciated them. I prefer them, good for the back! Listing does reflect double beds as rooms are not very large.....typical for cabins in our price range at the lake. Thanks again for your stay!
Our family of four (including two small children) had a great time in John's home. It was cozy and easy to use and maintain. John was responsive and on top of all of the details. The location is good if you want to visit Northstar and other snow destinations along 267.
We just returned from a wonderful stay in this Tahoe cabin. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! We had 4 adults and 2 kids, and found that we all had plenty of room. The kitchen is beautiful and well-stocked enough that we had no trouble cooking a big Thanksgiving dinner in it! The hot tub was a great way to warm up after playing in the snow.
John is a great host and was very communicative anytime we had a question or concern. The cabin is pristine in its cleanliness (seriously, I've never seen carpets this clean in snow country!). We will definitely be back the next time we come to Tahoe.

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!
