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.

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 Lake Tahoe North Shore

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.

Excellant start to the summer!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on Friday evening, the home was easy to locate with the owners directions and the key pad lock was simple to master. Once inside the home it was very clean. I have to say my family regularly uses VRBO and this was one of the cleanest homes I have been in. The two down stair bedrooms both had king size beds and plenty of closet and drawer space. The linens where very nice. The loft bed room with bath was awesome for the kids. Living area was cozy with seating for 4. Which was perfect! I would suggest installing a screen door, so you can enjoy the mountain air but not the bugs. The kitchen had plenty of silver ware, glasses and plates, overall well equipped. The hot tub was a nice addition to the pile of snow left behind from winter. Boys had a blast chipping away at it. This house is just up the street from the community pool and courts. Less than a five minute walk. We really enjoyed the bbq and deck area. There was no shortage of towels! Home is really tastefully decorated. The owners are very easy to work with and extremely responsive. Thank you so much for our mini break between school and summer camp!

Wonderful and Cozy

Clean, beautiful, and centrally located. Hot tub was wonderful, as was the fire place. The owners also sent the deposit back quickly. :) I would for sure rent this space again.

Cozy, Peaceful Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed two nights / three days at the cabin on Thanksgiving weekend 2016 -- perfectly timed, as we woke up Sunday morning to a winter wonderland (about 12" of fresh powder).

The cabin itself is really cute, cozy, and rustic -- perfect for the six of us (4 adults & 2 kids) to hang out, play board games, watch TV, cook and share meals together without feeling like we needed more (or less) space. We felt very comfortable in the home, from the moment we walked through the front door.

The living room was cozy (not too small – just right!), and the wood stove provided ample heat. Digital cable is available, but we opted to bring our ChromeCast for easy access to all our favorites.

The kitchen was well equipped – it had every utensil, pot, pan, etc., that we could possibly need. We loved having access to the gas BBQ out on the deck -- we used it the night we arrived to make dinner. The deck was really spacious and surrounded by big beautiful trees, and the hot tub was perfect (especially while it was snowing!). The neighborhood was peaceful, with the cabin situated on a corner away from the main road (far from traffic, but close enough that we could get groceries, lattes, etc., within a few miles).

The two downstairs bedrooms were good size with big, comfortable beds, and the kids loved sleeping up in the loft (where there were plenty of beds to choose from). There was a nice bathroom upstairs and another downstairs (shared by the two bedrooms). Plenty of warm blankets and fluffy pillows were provided, along with several throws (which we used when snuggling up to watch movies at night).

We REALLY appreciated having a washer/dryer in the cabin. With all the time we spent playing in the snow, we ran several loads in the dryer to defrost the cuffs of our pants!

Another bonus: The house is situated on a bit of a hill – which meant we could step right outside our door, carve out a path in the fresh powder, jump into snow saucers (found at Safeway down the street for $16.99), and slide down the hill over and over again. The kids absolutely loved it!

The owners were extremely responsive and very pleasant to work with, from start to finish. I would not hesitate to rent this cabin again in the winter months -- though it might not be ideal in the hottest summer months, since there does not appear to be air conditioning.

The bottom line: If you’re looking for a peaceful, cozy home-away-from-home where you can escape the crowds, this is it.
