Overview

Agate Bay House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-9)

Very private woodsy site, yet near conveniences. Walk to Garwoods restaurant or the beach! A great 'get away from it all'... place!

This all pinewood Mountain Retreat has old Tahoe charm in every room. New kitchen & baths with lovely mountain furnishings make this home a comfortable family retreat for all seasons. Relax on a huge sunny deck or enjoy the warmth of a crackling wood fire. The sun room is a great place to awaken for breakfast before embarking on a backyard ski into the national forest. Adventurous skiers can ski from the cabin and summit Mt Pluto at Northstar resort, then ski back.

Comfortably share the Tahoe experience with friends or another family. A separate playroom/TV room, away from the living room make for quiet adult apres ski conversation while enjoying the stone hearth or outside deck. Off the playroom, an outside sandy badminton/volleyball court or Bocce or Croquet in the backyard make this ideal for young kids. Sports equipment in cabin.

The cabin sleeping arrangements are:

Bedroom 1 with 'Queen Log Bed' and exterior deck.

Bedroom 2 with 'Queen Log Bed' and exterior deck.

Bedroom 3 with 'Log Bunk Bed' twin mattress over full size mattress.

Bedroom 4 with full size bed-separate room off the loft with low ceiling-for kids or small adults

Twin mattress in the loft

Full size pull out couch in Family room.

Gas BarBQue on the deck; sometimes an igloo is in backyard... courtesy of my kids.

About steve worthington

Our family loves the outdoors. Tahoe offers 4 seasons of some of the best weather and natural settings on the planet. Our cabin is ideally located to take advantage of all the year round fun that the Tahoe region and Lake Tahoe have to offer. We are in the midst of world class skiing resorts, including x-country & backcountry skiing right out the back door. Our favorite beaches and restaurants are a 5-10 minute walk with boat & kayak launches even closer. Nothing better than relaxing after a day of outdoor fun next to a cozy warm fire with friends and family!

steve worthington purchased this house in 2006

The cabin is 20 minutes from Northstar, Incline Village, Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, 30 minutes from Homewood, Tahoe Donner and Mt Rose, 35 minutes from all Soda Springs Resorts (Sugar Bowl, Donner Ski Ranch, etc.) The cabin is a 5 minute walk to the Lake. The cabin has direct & easy access to backcountry wilderness for hiking & skiing.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Steve and Dorthy.



Many thanks for opening your home to my family last week. The cabin was perfect and we left it almost as we found it. (Minus used linens and such.) Everything worked, we didn’t need heat or AC, and we appreciated the kitchen items/condiments.



We will contact you next time we return to the area. I think my niece is also keen on renting again.

Ideal Tahoe getaway

  • 5 of 5
My family and I were looking for a nice thanksgiving getaway. We looked for some time in various sites and went through many offers. When we saw the pictures for this lovely home/cabin, I knew we found THE place. It was as if Steve knew what we were looking for, a nice quiet cabin. We booked the place and it was a very smooth, no hassle transaction. Steve made everything right to the smallest detail in giving us the info about the cabin and all the local fun places to go in the area. Once we got there, I was pretty surprised to see the place. It did exceed my expectations. It was the perfect place for our family to have our thanksgiving weekend. The fireplace was so cozy. The bedrooms were nice and comfortable. The large porch was great for our four legged family members. The short walk to the lake was a great family moment. Over all, everything was great. We even had snow one morning, making our stay even more memorable. I will definitely recommend this place to my friends and other family members. And probably make this cabin a frequent getaway place. Thank you Steve for giving us the opportunity to stay at your home.

Wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here over Fourth of July with my family, including 4 kids ages 2-9 & it was perfect! We loved the location - walkable to a beach, hiking, mini-golf & a popular restaurant. We biked to the grocery store, and grilled outside every night! There is a big deck for all to enjoy! The bedrooms are good size, and comfy! Bathrooms are clean & neat! My kids loved sleeping in the little loft! The owner is great! He set us up with all kinds of maps and pointers and was available for any questions! When we left, my whole family said, "Great find, Jen! Let's stay here next year!"

Cozy Cabin!

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay at the cabin! It exceeded our expectations on all it had to offer. We originally planned on staying in one of the lodges in Tahoe, but after doing some research on VRBO we found this cozy cabin and we were so happy with it. The location was very convenient to everything. Steve and his family really went out of their way to provide so much information on where to go and restaurants to visit. This made our trip so much easier for to get around and enjoy ourselves! Everything was so clean and it felt like home. When we weren't out exploring Tahoe we were able to enjoy the cabin and all of the board games, beautiful porch and outdoor games they have. We really had a great experience and would definitely go back!

2nd-time Renters - Great as always

  • 5 of 5
This was our second year in a row renting from Steve, and we were as happy with the rental as the first time that brought us back. The listing is as described. The place is quite charming and looks newly renovated. The photos actually don't do the sunroom justice. The place was very clean. Not as much snow, but we did use the provided sleds for an afternoon. Steve was even flexible enough to accommodate our travel times. Much appreciated and looking forward to coming back next year.

Just what we needed!

  • 5 of 5
We (2 adults + 2 kids) stayed at this chalet for 5 nights. Cute chalet with everything we needed. Close to the lake, Safeway, forest. Loved the beer mugs waiting for us in the freezer! Enjoyed reading the notes throughout the house. They were good reminders. The fireplace was definitely the place to gather around after a day of skiing. Even our dog did! Everything was clean and well decorated. You could definitely feel that the owners DO care about their place. We will definitely come back in the future! Thanks!
