About Kelly

We are a family of four who dreamed of owning a home in Tahoe. Our dream came true when the housing market declined and we could afford this cozy cabin in such a perfect location. We try to visit once a month and more often in summer. We are continually adding new furniture, electronics, etc. We want it perfect for our visits and your visits! Our children are 9 and 12 so all of their toys end up in our game room for your children to enjoy. We have cars, dolls, kitchen toys, games, tinkertoys and more. We are so excited every time we get to visit this fantastic cabin and are happy to share our favorite activities and restaurants with you. Just ask! Nana and Aunti E are pictured with the kids.

Kelly purchased this cabin in 2008

Why Kelly chose Carnelian Bay

We fell in love with the beautiful, peaceful neighborhood, wide streets (nice when the streets are full of snow and plows!) and quiet location next to the forest. It was important for us to be close to all of the great beaches as well as the major ski resorts like Squaw, Alpine Meadows and Northstar. This is a quiet neighborhood surrounded by nice, large homes. When we saw that this house had a bonus room downstairs we knew instantly that we would bring up the foos ball table and make that the most fun room in the cabin. It is a favorite. The kids will disappear down there in the evenings and never come out...except to eat! We even added a full bath to the game room and a door to the backyard so they really never have to come out:-) It makes it nice when the kids have their own space and the adults can lounge in the living room or decks on their own. The clincher was knowing we had thousands of acres of forest in our back yard including dozens of trails - even an Off Highway Vehicle trail as our son loves to ride ATVs. Luckily, the OHV trails start at the end of our block so it is a quick walk to get to it but that trail does not run directly behind our house so we never hear the noise of the ATVs and dirt bikes on that trail. The trails we do have behind our house are for hiking and biking and occassionally you will see horseback riders. It is perfect for snow-shoeing and cross country skiing in winter. It is fun to go out in the fresh snow in the morning and see all of the animal tracks from the night before. We love walking the neighborhood and enjoying all of the lake views in our area. Fulton Crescent is a great street to watch the sunset colors over the lake. And, we are hoping we might get a lake 'peek' view from our front yard and deck soon as some of the trees are getting removed to make the area more fire safe!! It is a short drive to the lake...which is our favorite spot to hang out in the summer.

What makes this cabin unique

Fantastic hill in the backyard makes a great sled run in the winter. Or in the summer you can hike and bike right out the back door to the trails. The Off Highway Vehicle trail is just at the end of the block. We love all of the summer area activities as well such as Farmer's Markets, free concerts on the beach, Truckee street fair, Shakespeare festival, and more. Pick up a free Tahoe paper to see all of the options available.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The cabin was very nice, clean and cozy! Thanks for sharing your cabin with our family, it made the 8 hours drive completely worth it. My son did not want to leave this morning. I liked everything about the cabin, location and the landlord was very nice and helpful :) Hope we can come back sometime.

Great family fun

  • 4 of 5
My family and I had a great time staying at Lynwood Chalet. The cabin is well taken care of and offers a lot of amenities. The neighborhood is also very nice and peaceful. In addition, the cabin is close to most Tahoe City businesses and relatively close to Lake Tahoe.
Lynwood Chalet is an excellent jumping off point for activities such kayaking, cycling, hiking, and walking. I look forward to spending more time with my family at the cabin in the future.

Fourth Of July Weekend Blast

  • 5 of 5
Had a wonderful time with 5 of my friends during the Fourth Of July. Cozy and wonderful home that had plenty of space for everyone. Kitchen had everything we needed to cook the meals we planned. Grocery store and shops just a little down the road from us kept us from spending too much money. Wonderful and quiet nieghborhood with little cute creatures running up and down trees. Great place to just unwind and forget about the stresses of the everyday world. I do plan on coming back with my children to enjoy the place in the winter.

Owner's Response: Hi Israel, Glad you all had such a great time. You are making me wish I was back on the deck watching the squirrels and birds and relaxing! I will have to get back up soon myself :-) I hope you make it back up with your kids this winter. We have a snow paradise in the back yard with a sled run and lots of room to play.

Thanks for taking the time to write review for Lynwood Chalet.

Huge Backyard

  • 4 of 5
The house is great. Typical level of funky for a Tahoe house, but the owners have taken the time to make it very comfy, usable and child friendly. The Game room downstairs is excellent and the kids spent plenty of time down there. Our favorite part of this location is that it borders the National Forest. While we were there in winter, I'm very familiar with the mountain biking and hiking trails right out the back door and they are some of the best anywhere! We're excited to come back in the summer.

Perfect for kids

  • 5 of 5
When you drag little kids out to Tahoe for snow play, it's all too easy to end up in a situation where you're doing more schlepping back and forth to the play zone then playing. Not so with this rental. The owners are sitting on the perfect location for little kids to enjoy the snow - no driving required. Just pop open the back door, grab a sled, and you are in business on the hill in the back yard.

When the kids are tired, or better yet, asleep, you can sit in the hot tub on the deck, enjoy great a great, private view, and try to catch snowflakes in your mouth. I barely scratched the surface of what is available right outside the door, but I know I'll be back.

Owner's Response: Wow, Thanks for the lovely and perfectly-stated review. We bought the cabin a few years back when our kids were just 7 and 10 because we loved the sled hill and freedom it gave our kids...and the freedom it gave us as parents :-) Looking forward to your next visit :-)

Perfect location and cabin

  • 5 of 5
We arrived the weekend of Labor Day. After a long ride to Tahoe, we were excited to get our vacation started. The cabin was exactly what we were looking for. We were close to Tahoe City and to Kings Beach. The hot tub was exactly what we needed after a long drive. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen was well equipped. We felt right at home. The owner was easy to work with and before we left sent us information regarding events that were happening in Tahoe City. When we didn't feel like cooking there were lots of restaurant to pick from close by. On Sunday night, we sat on the porch and watched the fireworks from Kings Beach. We can't wait to go back! Perfect vacation.

summer vacation

  • 5 of 5
Our family of six adults had a wonderful time at Lynwood Chalet! It was incredibly well appointed with everything we could possibly need, and everything was in good condition, right down to the espresso machine. Our favorite amenities were the two big, beautiful decks where we spent most of our time, and the hot tub. We loved the quiet neighborhood and the beautiful forest right behind the cabin. The owner made everything very easy with great directions and prompt replies to emails. This was the best VRBO experience we have had and we hope to return to Lake Tahoe and Lynwood Chalet again soon. It was perfect!
