Charming studio chalet

Apartment - Entire home/apt · North Lake Boulevard, Carnelian Bay, CA 96140, United States

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, 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.

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.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • It's a very lovely place to spend over the weekend. It's nice and clean and has pretty very much everything we would need. Greg has be super helpful as well. The only problem for us is the bed as it's quite small, probably a full size bed or smaller(?)... But overall, it's a nice experience.

  • Wow! Full stars all across the board. We decided to head up to Tahoe spur of the moment. We messaged the host with our requested dates and he responded straight way! The cabin itself is fantastic! Clean as a whistle and full of charm. The best part is that there are custom book shelves all over filled with a fantastic array of books. Both my boyfriend and myself finished books we picked up. The cabin has a lake view and a balcony with a BBQ. It really doesn't get any better for the price. And the towels were ultra soft smelt like vanilla bean. More like a luxury hotel then an airbnb. FANTASTIC!

  • We had a great time at Gregory's place in North Lake. Beautiful little cabin, very comfortable with high ceilings and a very convenient location. Perfect weekend for my family.

  • This place is exactly as we expected and appeared on the picture: it's very cosy and extremely well designed and maintained. The library is truly amazing and an inspiration how we will want to decorate our place! Greg is also a very responsive host. And location is close to everything. I would totally give the place five stars except one thing- the bed is really too small. After reading the previous reviews, I do expect it will be small, but not that small! It's not even full size! We are not big size people at all- being Asian, my husband is average and I am petite, but we can't sleep comfortably in the bed, so we have to end up sleeping head to toe on the 2nd night...will strongly suggest Greg to change the bed, and I do see there is room to put a bigger bed there.

    With that said, this place is still a gem, we will consider to come back!

  • My husband and I stayed for two nights. This place is beautiful and seems spacious bc of high ceilings. If you don't need a full kitchen this place is perfect. I cannot say enough how beautiful and well taken care of it is. The bed is small but we knew that going in and we are both under 5' 6" so it was fine for us. Greg is super nice and easy to get on touch with. It was great to come home to such a beautiful spot that is so central to everything.

  • Simply a gorgeous cabin to call home while at Tahoe. As you can see from the pictures, the set up is really quite lovely, with everything in its place. We loved the view of the lake and made good use of the bbq to cook some steaks for dinner. Would definitely stay here again!

  • AWESOME spot and great location. Will definitely be going back! Greg is super responsive as well. 10/10.

  • Greg was super responsive, and the cabin is beautiful. Recommended!

  • Greg gave us information on getting to/in the chalet well in advance and was extremely responsive when we had questions once there. The chalet is gorgeous, perfect for a quiet weekend getaway or ski weekend for a couple. The dock was a quick walk from the chalet and had incredible views of Lake Tahoe.
