CLASSIC LAKEFRONT TAHOE CABIN

Carnelian Bay Cabin Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, Sleeps 8-12

Comfortable, charming and convenient, with beautiful views of crystal-blue water and snow-kissed mountains—come share our family's quiet lakefront Carnelian Bay cabin compound. The original cabin was built as a summer guest house in 1935. Over the years two new cabins were added to create a stylish compound, and the main cabin was expanded into a comfortable, modern space to accommodate year-round visitors, while maintaining its beautiful Old Tahoe charm.

Plenty of room for guests in three separate units. Kitchen, living room and wood stove are in the Lakeside Cabin, with its views of the water and mountains. The Lookout Cabin has two sleeping rooms, a large bathroom and laundry facility. The Roadhouse Studio above the two-car garage had a jetted tub, plus fridge and microwave in a mini-kitchen. Wireless internet, cable TV and DVD players.

Suitability:
  • wheelchair inaccessible
  • pets considered
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only

Jessica, Martha, Sally and Jenny are four sisters who love family time at the cabin. Our own children have grown up here, and the next generation is now loving it. Happy summer sailing, quiet autumn hikes, festive winter celebrations and spring skiing are family traditions.

Jenny purchased this cabin in 1974

Our great-grandparents camped near Tahoe City for years, starting in the early 1900s. Our grandparents continued the tradition on the west shore, camping at Bliss State Park each summer. Our parents purchased this lakeside retreat in 1974, giving us all happy times at Lake Tahoe. Three generations continue to enjoy the Abbe Cabin.

Our private shore provides a retreat from civilization, but is close to great skiing, nightlife, and outdoors adventure. Great for dog walks, a beautiful public path meanders north along the shore, delivering you to the small village of Carnelian Bay and its 3 restaurants, store, post office, public beaches and pier — the site of the annual Wooden Boat Show. We welcome well-mannered dogs by permission only.

Winter Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Mar 24, 2014

We had an absolutely lovely weekend at the Abbe Cabin compound! There was plenty of room for our multigenerational group to spread out and relax while enjoying the gorgeous lake views and beautiful property. Absolutely everything we needed was provided and we were greeted with a basket of delicious organic goodies from the local market when we arrived. The location is fantastic and we took advantage of the lakeside path to walk to Gar Woods and the beaches beyond. Our boys and dogs had a great time playing on the beach in front of the cabin and there was some heated competition for champion stone-skipper. The Abbe family were wonderful to work with and you can tell that they really care about making the property a home away from home for their guests. We hope to return!

Beautful location

This home has all the amenities that are needed and then some. I cooked most of our meals while staying at the vacation rental and was pleasantly surprised at the stainless steel stove, refrigerator and dishwasher. The local supermarket was very close which helped us a lot with last minute items. The view is just spectacular!! The steady rain kept me from being on the beach, so I just opened the back door and sipped my hot coffee from the comfort of the warm kitchen to listen to the waves. I hope to return to this home on a more regular basis. Thank you for sharing your home with us!!:)

All Three Cabins Join for One Unforgettable Weekend

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Oct 30, 2013
  • Stayed: Jul 2013
The property is a narrow slice of Tahoe goodness. The three houses sit in a row, each looking over the next at the lake, from the elevated highway down to the beach. The homes are very clean and convenient, with vintage Tahoe decor and simple but comfortable furnishings. Though the neighbors are much larger ($$$) on either side, they are set back farther so that when you're in the Lakeside house looking out or enjoying the deck, it feels uncrowded and the view unhindered. Below the deck is a very nice fire pit (a gathering spot most houses don't have), then the nicely maintained trail running to Garwood's Pier, and then the actual beachfront.
Oh, the beachfront! It may be a disappointment to some that the neighbor's pier and boathouse (not admittance allowed) is so near and large, but it created a perfectly safe and serene cove for all of the kids in our family to play. They dove for crawfish, snorkeled and floated and the nearby boathouse and surrounding docks break up the wakes and waves creating a perfectly peaceful shorefront. As you can see from the pictures, the view is breathtaking - I just didn't know that the pier in the picture was not ours to use.
All that to say, most vacation homes that can accommodate a group of our size in this price range are a drive away from the beach in which case you have to pack up for the day, the meals and use crowded public beaches. When you stay at Abby Cabin, you get your own slice of heaven! In fact, we're going to make it a summer tradition!

Perfect Family Reunion

"We just arrived home from our wonderful family reunion at the Abbe Cabins. Our son appreciated the privacy after a year of living in the Marine Corps barracks in Helmand province, Afghanistan! The setting was perfect!, the weather was beautiful, and everyone had a great time. The quiet lakefront location and comfortable cabins created the perfect get-away for our family.
Thanks for the special touch of the basket of goodies and for being gracious hosts.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the kind words, Jeff! We were glad to have been the site of your reunion, and very special homecoming for your son. All the best -- Jenny Abbe

Skiing was great, accomodations were better!!

Our stay at the Abbe cabin was really great. The book of instructions provided at the cabin was extremely helpful from how to use the wifi to the best restaurants in the area. The cabin location was very convenient to all the ski areas and a great breakfast place (the Post Office) right up the road. The multiple cabins allowed for the family to be together but at the same time have privacy when desired. The accommodations were very clean and the thermostat worked just great on some very cold nights. I highly recommend this rental for a great family vacation!
