North Tahoe Heaven

Our internet friendly, non-smoking mountain home has wonderful Tahoe ambience: old-style heavy-beamed architecture, knotty pine interior, two big decks and a wall of glass that looks out through a forest of pines to the lake. Antiques, artifacts of mountain living, lodge-style furniture, and beautiful prints and paintings all add to the feeling that you have arrived at a better place.

With a 40 foot great room, our Heaven is completely comfortable for groups of ten. At the same time, single couples have also told us how enjoyable it is to spend time in such a spacious environment. Moreover, our rates are low because we were fortunate enough to buy this house years ago, before Tahoe real estate prices tripled.

Summer or winter, activities are close at hand. Walk to the lake, or to our gorgeous homeowner’s club with pool, volleyball court and tennis courts. One block up are trailheads for hiking or mountain biking into the national forest. Seven ski areas, multiple golf courses, boating, parasailing and Nevada gambling are all just a short -- and breathtaking -- drive away. At night, snuggle up to fireplace (wood provided, naturally) or walk outside and marvel at the Milky Way, the blazing moon and shooting stars.

Children will spend hours in our tree fort, complete with sliding pole and its own deck! Five blocks up from Highway 28, we’re free of vehicle noise. Few cars come up our road, and children can play safely to their heart's content. Sleds and saucers, legos, toys and games can provide day-long children’s entertainment.

While brimming with old Tahoe charm, our home has every modern amenity. High speed wireless internet service is available. The kitchen is fully out-fitted, and the appliances are new. Three TV's including a flat-screen HD TV, VCRs and DVD players are available for your entertainment. A washer and dryer are on site. A library of children's videos is available for your use. Our four bedrooms provide two queen and six single beds, with a queen sleeper sofa available in the great room. Linens are provided, and out on deck our Weber gas grill is ready to cook up your favorite meals.

So leave those work boots behind, and come to Heaven. Come up to sunny days, clean mountain air, and the freedom to do nothing more than enjoy the thrill of being at Tahoe.

About Robert Schladale

Hi, I am a writer and wood worker in Auburn California.

Robert Schladale purchased this house in 1992

Why Robert Schladale chose Carnelian Bay

We bought this house because the living area has great old Tahoe style, lots of windows and a quiet, private location. It's only one block to many hiking trails, and a block in the other direction to the pool. Skiing and water sports are nearby, and Nevada casinos are only 3 miles away.

What makes this house unique

The living area upstairs is completely open with a vaulted ceiling supported by huge solid pine beams. It's a great space to be in whether we have lots of visitors or I'm there by myself.

Guestbook comments from the owner


We had a fabulous time this past weekend staying at your house. The two feet of fresh powder turned everything into wonderland, probably the prettiest I've ever seen Tahoe. The kids loved playing in the snow and so did the adults. It was truly magical. You have a fantastic property, thanks for renting it out to us. I hope we left everything in good shape.

Take care,

Apr 2005

Excellent Stay at Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful place and perfect fit for 10 people. Kids enjoyed the stay and really liked the kids home which is located backside of the house. The owner was responsive and was able to clarify all our doubts. Looking forward to booking the house again in future.

Cute place, good layout!

  • 5 of 5

This property is very well located! We came to town for my father‘s birthday party, my brother and I both stay there comfortably with our two families. The kids loved the treehouse in the back. We even had peekaboo views of the lake! The owner was responsive, and friendly, we will definitely be back!

Perfect for our family

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect location for my family. My kids (3 & 5) loved the tree house, swing as well as the community pool. The house was great with the bedrooms on the first level and the living area up stairs. The large upstairs open area meant that I was able to cook dinner while I kept an eye on my two young kids. We ate dinner out on the balcony each night surrounded by large trees which gave a nice tranquil feeling. Safeway is near and there's even a walking/running trail just a one minute walk up the road.

The owner was very responsive to my questions and was very helpful.

It's also a plus to have super fast internet access.

I would definitely recommend this home for your stay and would definitely stay here again.

Cozy & Spacious Tahoe Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific time at Robert's lovely Carnelian Bay home! The neighborhood was quiet and peaceful, with two large decks surrounded by trees and blue sky. We were a total of three adults and four children, and the house worked out perfect for us. The majority of our time was spent upstairs cooking, playing board/card games, reading, and hanging out. The four bedrooms downstairs were comfortable with plenty of room for our personal belongings. We rented kayaks and stand up paddle boards at Waterman's Landing, played miniature golf, rented Redbox movies at the local Safeway (great selection of quality food!), had a fancy dinner at Gar Woods, and soaked up the natural beauty of Lake Tahoe. Highly recommend!

It was North Tahoe Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

There were seven of us in the family, five adults and two teenagers. We had so much fun. The cabin has all the bedrooms on the first floor and the uptstairs is where we spent most of the time.It is a very nice size room with kitchen at one end and big fireplace and tv at the other end. The large dining room table was "game central". There was always a card game going. The large windows all around let in so much light and the view of the trees was wonderful. There are two decks off this main room which gave that much more room for relaxing. We were only there for four days....and that was not enough! We had morning hikers in our group, swimmers that liked the pool, and rafters that liked the lake. We were sad to leave.

Real cabin feel

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at this cabin for the weekend. Everything was clean and really roomy for our group of 10. Loved the fireplace and enjoyed sitting by it. Will visit again! Hopefully in the summer!

Great hiking trails, including access to the Tahoe Rim Trail, are accessible from our house - no need to drive to a trail head. In summer, our pool and tennis courts are within walking distance and the closest beach is about one miles away. In winter, snow sledding can be done in our yard or hills nearby. Northstar, Alpine Meadows and Squaw Valley ski areas are all within an easy, scenic drive.
