Agate Bay House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms (Sleeps 10)

Enjoy the wonderful quiet surroundings of Lake Tahoe in our gorgeous mountain home, CHARNEY CHALET. It offers over 2200 square feet of spacious living space on a 1/3 acre lot. This retreat is newly decorated in alpine comfort and elegance. There is a newly remodeled kitchen with solid granite countertops, hardwood floors and beautiful wood appointments throughout. The kitchen has a 4 burner gas cook top with a convection oven. It is fully stocked with exceptional Gunter Wilhelm Executive Chef Series 7 pc. Knife Set (High Carbon Stainless Steel) sold at Williams-Sonoma. This is added to our smaller existing set of Michael Chiarello Napa-Style Santoku high-end knives. We have recently added a 10 piece set of Calphalon Durable Hand-Anodized Aluminum Non-Stick interior Pots and Pans with Stay Cool Handles and Oven safe to 450 degrees. This improvement should make the most discriminating chef happy. Since we frequent our Lake Tahoe home often, we look forward to having a beautifully-stocked kitchen for our own family meals, as well for our many guest renters. Professional chefs have even complimented us on our cook ware. There is a large dining table that easily seats 10. We have Fiesta Ware plates and serving platters with lots of silverware to compliment the table.

The well-furnished large Great Room has a cozy river rock fireplace as a focal point. We have lots of seating for your group to be together. Enjoy music on the stereo sound system or watch a DVD on the new 39' flat screen HD-TV. Watch a movie from cable on demand. The large living area also includes a reading nook surrounded by lovely windows and French doors that lead to our deck. Just outside on the private deck is our brand NEW Marquis hot tub with peek views of Lake Tahoe. Our hot tub seats 4 - 5 and has fountain features and is state of the art! We have our hot tub professionally cleaned and maintained before every new guest rental arrives. There is a table, umbrella, chairs and a barbecue on the deck, as well, for enjoying the outdoor ambience during the summer months. A well-appointed powder room is off the great room. This great room offers a very large living area with high pine ceilings that allows for wonderful family time with mountain atmosphere.

The spacious master suite is on the same level as the kitchen and great room. It has a comfortable California king bed as well as a 20 inch TV with cable and DVD, and private bathroom with a shower. The King bed offers a down comforter and a choice of foam or down pillows. Included in the master suite is a comfortable lounging sofa for reading or watching movies. There is a private entrance to the deck through French doors if you want to sneak out for a private soak in our NEW hot tub after the kids are in bed. There is ample closet and dresser space. Views of the pine trees allows privacy from this spacious master suite.

Down stairs is a lovely Queen bed room with a down comforter and a small TV with cable. It is perfect as a second master bedroom if two families are sharing the home. Its decor is European Alpine and gives you a mountain retreat atmosphere. There is a bay window with seating for reading or relaxing. There is also a room with 2 bunkbeds for the kids to have their own space. The downstairs bathroom has 2 sinks and a full bathtub and shower. The full-sized washer and dryer is located in the large laundry room with iron and ironing board and room for delicate clothing air drying. We provide laundry soap for your stay.

A private bonus bedroom is accessible from the rear of the attached garage. This is the perfect room to send the kids to play foosball or watch their own movie on a TV with DVD/VCR with cable while the adults enjoy the great room upstairs. It even has a full bathroom with shower. There is also a very comfortable and attractive wood-framed twin trundle day bed with a pop up twin trundle mattress. This room serves as a two person bedroom if more sleeping space is needed. This hideaway bedroom is quiet and private with access to the backyard through the sliding glass doors. It has forced air heating but also has its own new wall heater for comfort. There is an armoire for your convenience.

Linen for the beds and towels are provided for your use. In the summer, you will want to bring beach towels to use at the pool and the lake. There is shampoo, conditioner, soap and blow dryers in each bathroom.

Our home is centrally located 6 miles east of Tahoe City and 2 miles west of Kings Beach in the private Agate Bay neighborhood. Our home sits on an approximately 1/3 acre lot on one of the finest streets in Agate Bay. We are surrounded by a quiet, wooded neighborhood with underground utility wires. Fine dining is nearby at Gar Woods or enjoy casual dining at CB pizza. There are many other excellent options as well. Nevada casinos are 10 minutes away in Crystal Bay or a little further to Incline Village.

Northstar, Squaw Valley, and Alpine Meadows are less than 15 miles away for downhill and cross country skiing. Diamond Peak, Mt. Rose and Homewood are within 30 minutes of our home. There is snow shoeing available across the street in forest land. In the summer, walk to the nearby Agate Bay Sun Club to swim in the pool or play ping pong, sand volley ball or tennis on our courts. These amenities are FREE to our guests during your stay. Dog friendly Patton beach is nearby where kayaks can be rented in the summer and some weekends throughout the year. World class hiking, mountain biking, and rafting are nearby.

Master Suite - King

During the summer months, we have two beach umbrellas and four beach chairs available for your use. During the winter months, we have many sleds available for your use. This makes packing easier and carefree.

About The Owner

We have always enjoyed Lake Tahoe even before we had children. Now we have 4 adult children that grew up coming to the lake and creating wonderful memories at our Charney Chalet! The whole family enjoys visiting for all seasons. In the winter, Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows and Northstar are all within 15 -20 minutes from our home. There is great hiking right out our door or not far away. We love to travel with our dog and that is why we extend that to our guests. Dogs love Lake Tahoe as much as their other family members. We have shown you some of the nearby hiking trails on the map.

The Owner purchased this house in 2005

Why The Owner chose Agate Bay

We have visited many areas of the Lake Tahoe region. We enjoy the north shore because it is less hectic and less influenced by the south shore casinos. Agate Bay is a very special place with a community pool and tennis courts. It is so quiet, that on a busy 4th of July weekend, in Agate Bay, you would not even know it was so busy several miles away in Kings Beach and Tahoe City. We are located on a quiet street with underground utility wires that sits across the street from nature conservancy land. We offer our home for you to enjoy Lake Tahoe and Agate Bay.

What makes this house unique

We love spending time with our family and extended family sitting on our deck during the summer. Our lot is 1/3 acre so there is a sense of privacy, peacefulness and quiet. Our street has underground utility wires and our wooded surroundings makes for an amazing getaway feeling, while knowing that we can cook a gourmet meal or a quick snack in our new kitchen just back inside our french doors. Our home is big enough to come together in the great room for meals, hanging out, watching a movie, or playing games. Our home also allows room for privacy in the many well-appointed bedrooms and bonus room. All of our furnishing and amenities are new and it does not feel like a rental home but our home away from home. In the winter, our home is easily warmed up with our wood-burning stove or our central heater. There is a lot of room outside to play and sled. The NEW hot tub is four steps from the french doors off the great room, so getting there year round is a luxurious opportunity.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so very much for allowing us to stay in your fabulous home! Snuggling up by the fire, sipping hot chocolate (let's be honest... wine, too) and talking/ reconnecting with family and friends. Each room lovingly prepared by all of you. You have thought of every detail and anticipated every need. We can't wait to return!!

Ski Sista Reunion

  • 5 of 5

We hosted our annual girls ski trip at this wonderful warm and cozy home. Perfect new hot tub for relaxing and a great location for skiing at Northstar or Squaw. It was so comfortable..... a perfect home away from home with a fully stocked kitchen and plenty of room for all!

Owner's Response: We are glad that you choose our home every year for your annual ski sister reunion. It means a lot to us that you enjoy our home and its location to the slopes. Our new hot tub is a wonderful addition to soak those tired muscles from skiing/boarding and we are happy that you enjoyed it too. As always, we have it professionally cleaned for every new guest by Pomin's in Tahoe City. Thanks for choosing our Charney Chalet for your annual ski retreat/reunion. We look forward to having you as our guests next year!

Awesome Tahoe Trip!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was fantastic with plenty of common area space for a group to chat and have fun after a good day of boarding. Definitely recommend this property to anyone that's looking for a fun place to stay!

Owner's Response: We are glad you had a great time at our Lake Tahoe Agate Bay Home. We love our great room where everyone has lots of cozy room to stretch out after a long day on the slopes, trails or the lake. This lovely space allows plenty of room for a large group to share all meals and easily socialize. From there our brand new hot tub is just a few steps away on our private deck. Thank you for choosing our home for your Lake Tahoe vacation. We cherish your opinion and continue to strive to be the best vacation home on the north shore!

Wonderful House In Best Neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5

We love this place! The house is so nice and comfortable- feels like more of your own place rather than a rental. The owners are super nice and easy to work with. The living, dining and kitchen areas are open floor plan, which is great for families and spending time together. The fireplace is perfect for cold winter days, since it puts out a lot of heat, and the owners are kind enough to leave plenty of wood! The kitchen is very well stocked with quality appliances and dishes - everything you need and more for cooking at home. We loved the dining table which is huge- enough for a big family or more, and great for playing cards and games. All of the furniture is high quality and very comfortable- it really does feel like your own home. The many windows highlight the beautiful, peaceful views outside (with an actual peek of the lake off the back deck). The brand new hot tub is amazing - we wanted to soak in it all day! One of the best things about this house is the neighborhood- it is very quiet and peaceful, with beautiful views, lots of trees, and perfect for long walks. There are a couple of great trails for exploring, right at the top of the road. It is also very close to the lake, and the location is very convenient for trips to the beach, the grocery store, restaurants, shopping, ski resorts and more. This is a really wonderful place and we will be back!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your very thorough review. We take great pride in speaking with our rental guests and making sure we try to help them meet all of their needs, whether it be finding the perfect restaurant or grocery store to finding the nearest but most scenic hiking trail or ski resort near our Lake Tahoe home. We try to answer any questions you may have regarding our home. We are glad to provide wood for burning in our really efficient and warm fireplace wood burning stove and sleds in the winter and beach umbrellas and beach chairs in the summer. We, too, love our new state-of-the-art hot tub and we have it professionally cleaned by Pomin's Hot Tubs before each renter arrives. We are glad you enjoyed it, too. After skiing, riding, waterskiing, hiking or kayaking, it is nice to soak your muscles in our brand new hot tub. We are glad you enjoyed the layout of our home including the large great room where everyone in your group can be together and enjoy cooking, reading, watching TV or playing games. We have four children and so having a large table to share a meal or game is essential. We are happy that you appreciated our very quiet and wooded neighborhood. We are very close to Lake Tahoe but there is no highway noise and our large lot allows for privacy and serenity. We have hiking trails to the lake or to the summit for overlooks of the lake all beginning at the end of our street. These trails are accessible all year round, even when snow has fallen. We vacation at our home often, as well, so in doing so, we make sure to make it as comfortable and elegant for you as well as for our family. We try to attend to every detail. We are happy that you feel our home is not your typical rental home because we strive to make it the best North Lake Tahoe guest home there is! We do hope you return to our Charney Chalet for your next vacation and we truly appreciate your kind words.

Great cozy house - highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful house, and we had a great time staying there. Owners take very good care of the place. Beds are comfy, furniture and carpets are clean, and their kitchen is indeed fully equipped with everything you need. This is one of the best properties that we rented. It felt more like home than a rental. We had a toddler, an infant and 2 kids with us - doors are solid wood, and it was quiet in the bedrooms even when everyone else had fun in the living room. Bonus room/ playroom is off garage - it's very quiet there, not to mention that there are lots of toys and games for kids and adults. This house is about 15 -20 minutes from Nirth Star resourt, and 10 minutes to Safeway and a beach.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your specific comments about our North Lake Tahoe Charney Chalet. We have really worked to create a home away from home and we strive to be a welcoming getaway cabin and not just a generic rental property. It is true about our entire household solid wood doors and the silent comfort it creates when someone wants to sleep or rest when others are in the great room socializing. We have collected all sorts of kitchen utensils and cooking accessories so that you can roast a chicken, cork a sparkling wine bottle or bake a cake. We have quality knives and pots and pans. With our newly added state of the art hot tub jacuzzi on Christmas Eve 2014, you will truly be pampered! We hope you return for your next Lake Tahoe vacation summer, winter, spring or fall.

Pre-Thanksgiving get away

This cabin is fabulous. Two families stayed together that weekend and we completely relaxed and enjoyed ourselves. The check in /check out process was very easy. The home owners are very easy to contact. We cooked our meals in the completely stocked kitchen. It's gorgeous. The hot tub was wonderful to soak in in the evening.

We can not wait to book this cabin again. The app was very helpful in finding a restaurant the first afternoon we arrived. Having the washer and dryer available is nice too. Plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms to accommodate all of us.

Owner's Response: So glad you all had a fantastic time. We really try to communicate with our renters so that they have all their questions answered in a timely manner. We love the North Lake Tahoe region and although we are still finding hidden gems in restaurants, hiking trails etc., we love being able to share this information with our guests. Glad you enjoyed our home with your extended family friends and do hope you return to make more memories in Agate Bay, North Lake Tahoe.

The Perfect Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Our family was able to visit in November 2014. We had a remarkable time! The home was perfect. More than enough room for 8 of us. There were ample places to relax and enjoy every aspect of this home. Four in our group were teenagers and loved it. They spent time riding bikes, hiking, eating and sleeping. They loved the bonus room.

The home had many items that made the visit wonderful. The kitchen was perfect with beautiful dishes, great cookware and knives. The bedrooms were clean, and comfortable, and had many pieces of art to admire. The bathrooms were great with soft, fluffy towels. The teenagers loved the hot tub and TV's too. The couches were nice and the home is decorated nicely. It was fun to see all of the different artwork, decorations and colors.

We spent a lot of time outside hiking, fishing, kayaking and bike riding. The area had much to see and do. We look forward to visiting in the spring and summer to see what Tahoe has to offer during another season. Five stars from us!! We wished we lived in this home full time!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind words and we are very glad you all had a wonderful time at our Lake Tahoe home. Our home seems to be very well designed for a large family or two families that want to share their vacation and feel there is room for privacy and yet communal space to socialize. Since we have a lot of windows and our great room is on the second floor, the woods and trees seem to envelope the room in warmth. We are glad that our home could offer every age group a feeling of belonging. We hope that your family chooses our home again for any future vacation at Lake Tahoe. Thank you for noticing our home and choosing it for your family vacation.

Our home is located close to any activity you might want in the Lake Tahoe region, yet is on a quiet flat street with no power lines so you really feel like you are in the woods. Our location allows you to avoid the crazy crowds thronging the casinos of the south shore. We are also far enough away from busier Tahoe City (7 miles) that you will truly feel you are in the mountains. But if you want a nice dinner on the lake or to rent a boat, you will not have far to go. You can even avoid going through Tahoe City to arrive at our home by going through Kings Beach. In the winter, downhill skiing is available at more than 10 ski areas within 40 minutes with Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, and Northstar less than 20 minutes away. In the summer, a hike up the hill or a short drive takes you to the Tahoe Rim Trail. Other trails and wilderness are also easily accessible. A large network of trails for mountain biking are right out our door. Enjoy the north shore of Lake Tahoe!
