If your activity of choice is hiking, mountain biking, snow shoeing, cross country or downhill skiing, there isn't a better spot to base yourself. Also conveniently located just over two miles to the heart of Tahoe City for shopping and terrific restaurants.

The house interior is bright, spacious and well appointed throughout with custom local artist-made furniture. Features a lovely river rock fireplace in the living room and gourmet kitchen.

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 Talmont

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

Weekend in the snow

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this property and the owner. The property was clean and very nicely decorated. It was more than enough space for two families with 4 children. The location was so convenient to local attractions and most importantly the freeway, so getting in and out of Tahoe was a breeze. It was also nice to deal with the owner who was overly accommodating, as opposed to a unresponsive management company. We really enjoyed our time here and would come back in a heartbeat.

Great place to stay as a base for Lake Tahoe

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed here before and will definitely do so again - it's a great base for all the amazing activities Tahoe has to offer, both summer and winter. This trip there were 7 of us in two families and we all stayed there in comfort. The main room is the real gem of the place and it's a great place to just hang out and enjoy some space. As well as river rafting, jetskiing, hiking, theater-going and other outside activities, we enjoyed watching movies on the large TV, playing games in the comfortable living area and dining on the deck.

The house is very well equipped and I'd highly recommend it as a place to stay.

Our Favorite Place to Stay in Tahoe!

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed several times at Carraig Nua, for skiing in winter and lake sports in summer. We've never been disappointed! The house has a beautiful main room with fireplace, a well-stocked and spacious kitchen area, a deck to sit out on which includes a grill, and clean and comfortable bedrooms with good bathrooms including plenty of towels, shampoo, hair dryer, etc. There's also a washing machine and tumble drier, and a second tumble drier in the garage. The house is in a great location for getting to major ski resorts and to the lake, including a gorgeous beach at Sugar Pines, boat rentals and jet skis in Tahoe City and even rafting down the Truckee River, as well as easy access to hiking trails and the restaurants, cafes and supermarkets in Tahoe City, which is our favorite lake town. It's also in a very peaceful spot; you can sit on the deck with a beer after a busy day and just listen to the quiet woods around you!
