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.
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.
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.
