This quaint and cozy retreat is perfect for relaxing from all your nearby skiing, hiking and boating adventures. Filled with books and views, you may not want to leave!

The space

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 oven, two burner electric stovetop, coffee maker, and full kitchenware. Bathroom and shower also include lovely tree filled views.

The apartment has Roku with Netflix, 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.

Guest access

Guests will have access to a lakefront lot with pier, beaches, and BBQ (about five houses away). Main house and pier are off-limits.

Location was cozy, quiet, comfortable, easy to get to. Worked well for us, and I'd happily stay there again.

The stay was incredibly relaxing. I would highly recommend Gregory's place. It was close to everything we did and extremely easy to find.

Gregory's place met all our expectations. The unit and surrounding property are expertly maintained. It's close proximity to Tahoe City to the south and Incline Village to the north gave us plenty of options for dining and sightseeing. Our stay at Gregory's place was a delightful experience.

Greg's place is perfect for anyone looking to enjoy the lake in the summer. It was quiet and relaxing and in a prime location. We'll definitely be coming back!

It's a perfect location to get away from the "tourist" areas and enjoy the quiet view in the trees. Safeway is right down the street, so we didn't feel limited in the reduced size of cooking and food storage. We were generally too busy enjoying the Lake and hiking around that we only needed the kitchen area for breakfast. I think we ended up driving around the whole lake each day since we didn't really plan out our days until day of. Emerald Bay and South Lake activities are about 30-45 min away due to winding roads and slower speed limits. Incline Village was also about 30 minutes away. Beds and bedding were comfortable, the 'futon' beds are surprisingly larger that I expected - didn't feel constricted while I slept. As others have stated, having private lake access is prime and the main reason why we picked Greg's place. For sure would recommend, it's great.

Lovely place, and perhaps even cuter in person. Stayed here with two friends for a few days in Tahoe and had a great time. The communication was great and beds were comfortable. Would definitely stay again!
