We are four sisters who love family time at the cabin. Our own children have grown up here, and the grandkids are now loving it.
Jessica purchased this Cabin in 1974
Why Jessica chose Carnelian Bay
Our great-grandparents camped near Tahoe City in the early 1900s. Our grandparents continued the tradition, camping at Bliss State Park each summer. Our parents purchased this lakeside retreat in 1974, continuing a happy tradition of summer on the shores of Lake Tahoe.
What makes this Cabin unique
Comfortable, charming and convenient, with beautiful views of crystal-blue water and snow-kissed mountains. The private rocky beach and lake shore provide a welcome retreat from civilization. A lakeside public path, which meanders north along the shore, delivers you to Carnelian Bay and its 3 restaurants, store, post office, dog-friendly beaches and public pier.

amazing stay at the Abbe Cabin
Our stay at the Abbe cabin was perfect! The home was clean and could accommodate all of us (10 + 1 dog) very comfortably. We did not feel like we were on top of each other. The kitchen was so nice to cook in as it overlooks the lake and hot tub. All of my friends gave it 5 stars and we want to go back in the summer!
Beautiful & spacious lakefront property; great for families
We had a wonderful experience at the Abbe cabin, and would highly recommend to other travelers.
The space & layout — unique set of three cabins. For groups of couples or large families, provides the opportunity retreat back to your own space.
The kitchen and common area — well equipped kitchen and comfy dining and family room areas. Recommend bringing your own paper towels.
Outdoors — being lakefront was wonderful. There is a small outdoor fire areas and the view from the lakefront is gorgeous.
Other pluses — our hosts were extremely prompt and responsive. They accomodated our dog and late check out requests, and even welcome us with a basket of goodies upon arrival! We visit Tahoe at least annually, and often with a large group; everyone agreed this was by far the best property we’ve been to and would be glad to come again!
Thanks, Jessica and family, for a wonderful stay!
Perfect family holiday!
The property was ideal for our family's holiday vacation to Lake Tahoe. Aside from great location, lakeside property and great condition of the home... the responsiveness and service was first class. The property is split into 3 unique spaces, which was a fun change of pace. Would highly recommend!
Perfect place for winter and summer
We were a large group of 10 people and 2 kids. We loved the place. Northstar is only 15 mins away which was perfect because we got back quickly and jumped into the hot tub.
The views of the lake from the apartment are breathtaking. We are already planning to come back in the summer to enjoy the kayaks and fire up the BBQ. The hosts were really responsive when we wanted information about road conditions during a snow storm. We would recommend this place to everyone.
Winter Weekend Getaway
We had an absolutely lovely weekend at the Abbe Cabin compound! There was plenty of room for our multigenerational group to spread out and relax while enjoying the gorgeous lake views and beautiful property. Absolutely everything we needed was provided and we were greeted with a basket of delicious organic goodies from the local market when we arrived. The location is fantastic and we took advantage of the lakeside path to walk to Gar Woods and the beaches beyond. Our boys and dogs had a great time playing on the beach in front of the cabin and there was some heated competition for champion stone-skipper. The Abbe family were wonderful to work with and you can tell that they really care about making the property a home away from home for their guests. We hope to return!
This home has all the amenities that are needed and then some. I cooked most of our meals while staying at the vacation rental and was pleasantly surprised at the stainless steel stove, refrigerator and dishwasher. The local supermarket was very close which helped us a lot with last minute items. The view is just spectacular!! The steady rain kept me from being on the beach, so I just opened the back door and sipped my hot coffee from the comfort of the warm kitchen to listen to the waves. I hope to return to this home on a more regular basis. Thank you for sharing your home with us!!:)
Lovely walk along the shoreline path, 1/4 mile to the public pier and beach at Gar Woods. For information on Tahoe Marinas: http://www.tahoercd.org/index.php/boat/marinas
