Time Well Spent

  • 5 of 5

This amazing property is located in Carnelian Bay. It is a short walk from "The Old Post Office" and "Gar Woods". If you are familiar with Lake Tahoe, you know these are two iconic places to eat. The "Old Post Office" features breakfast and lunch, while "Gar Woods" has amazing drinks, lunch, appetizers, and dinner. No worry about driving home after enjoying a "Wet Woody", their signature drink.

I've rented VRBO houses for years and this house was arguably the best stocked ever! There were spices, paper products in the pantry, up to date kitchen appliances, and even special food and water bowls for our four-legged family member. There were puzzles, movies, and a sparkling clean hot tub for our evening hours.

The house and neighborhood were quiet. We spent time on the deck enjoying the sound of the wind in the pines. There was deck furniture for all.

Also within walking distance was a dog beach and "Magic Carpet" Miniature Golf. The golf course was well maintained, though not crowded at all. There is a 7-11 with items you may have forgotten at home.

We come to Tahoe frequently. When we weren't at the house, we went to Northstar and to the State Fire Lookout. Our dog was able to accompany us to both. The number of pet-friendly activities and rentals is growing!

Of course, I highly recommend a stay at this home. In our group of 5 adults, we had three teachers who were spending one more weekend in the Sierras. Our stay at this home was truly "time well spent!"

Felt like a local

  • 5 of 5

Our party of 6 felt like locals at this great Carnelian Bay property. We loved the residential feel of the neighborhood on morning walks and at the end of the day on the pebble beach just a block away. The hot tub was awesome after dinners to star gaze. We took advantage of the sea kayaks at the beach and Gar Woods for dinner, which was excellent. It was also nice to have a 711 around the corner when we ran out of something. We loved the kitchen and balcony and enjoyed grilling steaks and fajitas for meals at home. The kitchen was very well stocked with everything we needed for cooking. It worked out well to have one family in the bedrooms downstairs and another family in the bedrooms upstairs. There was plenty of room for us all to spread out. The washer was nice and large to keep up with clean towels and hiking/lake outfits during our stay. Finally, the location of this property was just right for exploring both sides of the lake. We were able to enjoy Squaw Valley hiking in about 30 minutes to the West, and Sand Harbour swimming in Nevada about 30 minutes to the East. Lots of other trails were close by. We recommend this property to other large families!

Family and pet friendly! Easy walk to beach. Centrally located in quiet stretch of Lake Tahoe

  • 5 of 5

Great week over 4th of July holiday with 10 family members spanning 3 generations. While we could venture out to close by Kings Beach or Tahoe City, we appreciated the less crowded beaches and restaurants just a short walk from the house. Appreciated the large dining table where we could all gather for breakfast each morning to plan our adventures for the day. Star gazing in the hot tub provided perfect ending to each glorious day. The bunk room was perfect for 4 cousins to share.
