Cozy, quaint loft/studio apartment located in Carnelian Bay, about five miles north of Tahoe City and west of Kings Beach, or about 20 minutes from Squaw Valley and Alpine, and Northstar. The studio has two futon-style twin beds and a slightly larger bed not quite full size for any combination of 1-4 guests. Perfect for a family. The apartment features a small balcony with a lovely view of the lake to enjoy a glass of wine, or to barbecue. The apartment also has a kitchenette, with sink, microwave, small refrigerator, toaster, and full kitchenware. Bathroom and shower also include lovely tree filled views.
The apartment has cable TV, but if that's not your thing, it is filled wall to wall with books on every subject, as well as a sturdy desk to pen your deepest thoughts. Perfect retreat for bibliophiles and aspiring novelists.
No lake access at the apartment, but about five houses down there is a homeowner's association pier accessible with a key. There is also a bbq and large beach to enjoy.
If the ten minute drive to Tahoe City or Kings Beach seems overwhelming, Carnelian Bay has a few restaurants, including Gar Woods, where you can eat on their beautiful deck overlooking the lake, and a delightful mini-golf course that the kids won't forget.
Guests will have access to a lakefront lot with pier, beaches, and BBQ (about five houses away). Main house and pier are off-limits.
Interaction with Guests
I am usually living at the main house, and always available by phone.
Please take off your shoes at the entrance, and please no ski boots, skis, bikes, etc. in the apartment. There is room in the entry for those things.
Greg was a wonderful host! The studio was absolutely gorgeous and clean. The pictures do the place justice but the place is so mesmerizing!! I went with my boyfriend for my birthday and it was perfectly comfortable. We will definitely be coming back!!
Greg was wonderfully communicative and checked in to see if we made it ok and if we needed anything! Highly recommended for couples / singles / or a small group of friends!!
Exceptional place. Very well designed and in a wonderful location. Family loved it and looks forward to a return trip. Thanks!
We had a wonderful experience at Greg's charming studio chalet! The space is perfect for singles, couples, or small groups and was exactly as pictured. We really enjoyed all of the attention to detail and the access to hiking and beaches the location provided. Greg was quick to respond to any queries and extremely helpful! I hope to make it back again soon.
What a wonderful 2 days we spent in this amazing part of the world. Greg was a fantastic host. Although we didn't really need him, everything was really easy. The space is very relaxing. Truly beautiful and great value! We can't wait to return.
The listing was great! Each night, my wife and I would pick out several books to [start to] read. Every detail of the space was done exceptionally well, and inspired several conversations between us about how we would build a small rustic cabin in the same style some day.
While there was a totally random mixup where the housekeeper had forgotten to clean out the fridge after the previous occupant, Gregory was quick to offer several options for remedying the situation. He also surprised us with a bottle of wine for our trouble, which really left a positive impression with us.
Sometimes crazy random things like that happen when you're staying somewhere, and the way that the host responds to the situation can make all the difference in the world. In this case, our host left absolutely nothing to be desired, and handled everything as I would hope that any host would.
Gregory has created the most amazing studio right on the water. If you love reading there are more books than you could ever want to read. If you love nature then there is no where else we would want to stay. After many trips to Tahoe, we have found our new place to stay.
We had a great experience staying here, it was very neat, clean, comfortable, and private. The location is easy to get to and convenient. Greg was very good about making sure we were happy.
