About Laura Fay

My husband and I grew up in Ireland. We have 2 teenage boys. 'Carraig Nua' is home away from home...a place to take ourselves for great adventures or to relax and do absolutely nothing.

Laura Fay purchased this cabin in 2000

Why Laura Fay chose Tahoe City

We wanted to create great childhood memories for our kids, and what a great place Lake Tahoe our vacation home 'Carraig Nua' (Childhood family home name and Gaelic for 'New Rock') has been for the whole family. We love the mountains, being able take a walk in Paige Meadows and along sections of the Tahoe Rim Trail, or raft down the Truckee river on those days when we are too lazy for the big outings, and being able to hike, bike and play in some of the best western mountain terrain available.

What makes this cabin unique

When staying at 'Carraig Nua' we enjoy activities year round.

In the winter it's downhill skiing and walk-in/walk-out cross-country skiing, snow shoeing, sledding and more.

In summer, we walk from the front door for great walks and hikes through Paige Meadows and the Tahoe Rim Trail, mountain biking, water-skiing and doing just nothing but barbecuing and relaxing.

In the Fall, the town is sleepy and the hiking opportunities are unparalleled.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is a most beautiful, comfortable, most modern bungalow (cabin) I have every known. It's the best trip we've enjoyed. Thank you very much. God Bless All! - The Yeo Family

Immaculate, comfortable, great location

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week here with our two adult children and a son-in-law, and found it a perfect retreat from our busy lives as well as an opportunity to spend extended time with the family. The location is far enough away from the busy tourist areas to be peaceful and quiet, but just a short drive to Tahoe City and the beaches along the west shore. Want to sleep in? Get up early and take a hike? Cook a great meal in the kitchen or barbecue on the deck? Go kayaking in Tahoe City? Ride the tram at Squaw Valley? Take a long afternoon nap? The possibilities are too numerous to count, and certainly cannot be exhausted in a week's time.

The cabin itself is probably cleaner than your own home, unless you are as obsessive/compulsive as my mother. The kitchen is adequately equipped for cooking a gourmet meal (which we did - more than once). The beds are comfortable, sheets and towels are provided; there's plenty of sitting area around the table and in the living area. The loft is great for the introverts in the group. We really appreciated having access to a washer and dryer in the house.

The hosts were available and responsive by email or phone for any questions or problems. We would definitely return for another stay.

This home was perfect for our family of 8! It had ample space to sleep and lounge around.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this cozy and roomy home in Tahoe City. The place was clean and fully equipped with everything essential from blankets, great selection of DVD's and down to even sugar in the kitchen which we ran out of ourselves! We will definitely be back as the kids loved the bunk beds and game loft and the adults enjoyed the deck backing to a beautiful green forest and blue Tahoe sky. The place is quietly nestled in a cul de sac with a 10 min walk to a beautiful view of the lake.

Modern, very clean, well equipped and spacious.

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this property with my husband and two teenage children. We had plenty of space and it was a perfect house to come home to after hiking and hanging at the beach. There are hiking trails walking distance from the house. Squaw Valley has many trails and is a short drive. Sugar Pine point has a nice beach and is close. There are many restaurants and bars nearby in Tahoe City.

Check in an check out was easy and professional. I highly recommend this property.

Exactly what we were looking for

  • 5 of 5

Carraig Nua reminded us what going on vacation could be like. It was a pleasure to be able to at this house. While it was late in the season, the kids still got snow outside because the house is just high enough to still have had snow! We made use of the trails right near the property, which was a nice treat to not have to travel far to go snowshoeing. The beds, kitchen, living room, playroom were all in impeccable condition. The whole house was really comfy and we just lounged around playing board games one day.
