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.

Weekend in the snow
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.
Thank you for commenting on our attentiveness to your needs. It's important to ensure that guests are cared for & so glad everything worked out well for you - location, cleanliness, space & travel convenience. We look forward to hosting you again in the future. /Laura & Peter
Awesome Stay Awesome Owners
We have a fantastic time with 2 families and 4 kids total, ages 4-7. The owners were very helpful, clear on directions, and even made themselves available via text. The cabin was perfectly located near Tahoe City (just up the hill from great restaurant and a shop). It was spacious, comfortable, and worked great for our family. I would recommend this to anyone and everyone, including my family.
Beautiful, warm house - great for families!
We loved staying at this beautiful home. Loved the large windows, high ceiling, and open, well-stocked kitchen. House was very clean and comfortable. Owner was considerate and turned on the heat just before we arrived. The only drawback is that the home is a bit of a drive into the hills, but it's beautiful up there!
Beautiful, open floor plan in a fantastic setting
The hosts were warm and welcoming. The house was clean, with an open A-frame design on the second floor that made it feel even more spacious than you might suspect from the square footage. Our family flew in from out of town to spend Christmas with us, and this was a great amount of space. We had a blast snowshoeing on the local trails (where they held the 1960s Olympics). We tried ice climbing nearby falls, but it as a bit early in the season. Overall a great find with friendly hosts. Thank you!
The cabin has everything one could need. It's clean, spacious, and owner Laura is very helpful.
Very pleased we could offer your family some tips for some fun things to do in the area. Glad it was good for everyone.
Had a great time at your rental. Great location, near everything we wanted to visit.
