Overview

About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

This charming, clean and nicely decorated cabin (we call 'the baby') is adorable. It is a great family oriented cabin in the very wooded but friendly area of Agate Bay.

It has a freshly redesigned & renovated, fully equipped kitchen, newly renovated bathrooms & bedrooms, & a completely redecorated loft sleeping area with new linens and a cozy sitting\play area for the kids (and those young at heart). The icing on the cake is the large deck with your own hottub, great for warming up in the winter and lounging in the summer.

In the summer the kids can walk to the enclosed private homeowner's pool and spend the day playing volleyball, tennis or bad mitten as well as swim in the heated pool and eat from the snack bar.

Then walk on to the private pier at the lake to further sunbathe and swim in the beautiful Lake Tahoe.

We are very close to one of the Tahoe Rim trail entrances. A beautiful view once you reach the top. An hour hike for all ages. It is also fun to walk to breakfast to the old Carnelian Bay Post Office converted to a wonderful old world cafe.

In the winter months the woods are covered with snow and the cabin is warm and cozy. Ski lifts near by are North Star, great for family.

Diamond Peak which is a bit smaller (and sort of a secret to the tourists) is close, and is a lot of fun with three very long runs. Mt. Rose is to the east a bit further.

It is also close to Alpine Meadows and Squaw Valley but the above are a bit less of a drive. The cabin is on a slope so tobogganing is right outside the door.

Then back to the cabin for a hot, relaxing Jacuzzi on the deck.

You will love your stay in 'The Baby' as it has brought many wonderful memories to our family and friends and many return renters.

About Stephany Stencil

We are a family of 5. We spend a lot of time at the Lake. We live and work in San Diego, Ca. We love to get away to our cute quaint cabin in the pines. It is a wonderful year round retreat.

Stephany Stencil purchased this cabin in 1996

Why Stephany Stencil chose Carnelian Bay

We have always visited Lake Tahoe to ski and snowboard as a family. We have family in Reno, so the annual ski vacation included much of our extended family as well. We finally bought our own cabin about 20 years and we spend a good amount of time year round at the Lake. In a lot of ways I now prefer the summertime for our time at Lake Tahoe. Winter is wonderful but there is so much to do in the summer. We are fortunate enough to have ownership in the Pool and tennis court and pier at the Agate Bay community which makes it so convenient to enjoy the outdoors and mountain living.

What makes this cabin unique

There is a great hiking trail directly above the cabin. It is pretty straight up at times but well worth the fire thighs. The trail up is about 1 hour. You get to sit at the rim and see the view of the whole lake. It is a thrill and too gorgeous for words. The hike down is quick and fun. Watch out for the bears! The pier and pool are walking distance and are so refreshing during the summer. Buoys are available. Skiing and snowboarding parks are close by. North Star and Diamond Peak and Mt. Rose are very close.

Hot Tub on deck plus, Renters have access to large pier within walking distance. Buoys available by request. One Block from private Swimming pool with lifeguard, tennis court, bad mitten, snack bar. Additional fee to access the swim club and pier.

There is a great hiking traill that hooks up with the Serria Rim Trail directly behind the cabin's location. Beautiful panoramic views of the whole lake.

It was a great cabin! Very cozy! We ran into a few problems but were quickly fixed with the help of the instructions sent by the owners. I would definitely stay here again!

Beautiful secluded setting near Lake Tahoe's north shore.

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is in a beautiful secluded setting near Lake Tahoe's north shore and close to King's Beach and Carnelian Bay. It is perfect for a romantic getaway or a family retreat. Enjoying the hot tub after dinner at Gar Woods was the icing on the cake. The property was clean and in overall very good condition in spite of the kitchen remodel that was in progress. The owners are very helpful and communicate promptly via email to answer any questions.

The only negatives, which were minor, were the beds were a little soft for our taste and a sharp chef knife in the kitchen would have made food prep easier.

Overall, our experience was great and we will stay here again during future getaways to the north shore!

Peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this home situated in a great neighborhood, with access to all the facilities like swimming pool and private dock. The home itself was great and we spent a lot of time on the back porch enjoying the weather & hot tub. The furnishings were fantastic and beds were very comfortable (which is often rare in rentals). We will definitely return for future visits!

Nice stay

  • 4 of 5

House was nice and clean. Kitchen and appliances/cookware could use an upgrade (but seems as though it's in the works).

Quaint Tahoe Cabin

  • 3 of 5

We stayed one night because we were in town for our friends' wedding. There were three couples and four big kids that stayed. Plenty of beds. Two nicely appointed bedrooms downstairs with queen beds. Loved the decor. A double, futon and four twins upstairs with their own bathroom. Our favorite part about the cabin was the deck. Stephany, the owner, was a pleasure to work with. We had a couple things come up and she addressed our needs relatively quickly. Close proximity to Carnelian Bay and Garwoods.
