About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 11)

This classic North Lake Tahoe cabin was built by our family in the 1970's and it's been a year-round family vacation home since then. A large great-room upstairs has seen many games of Risk and Murder! (the family equivalent of Parcheesi) through the years. Also upstairs is the kitchen, dining area and one bath. There is a new sofa sleeper in the living area also. The large new redwood deck upstairs off of the main living area is perfect for BBQ and socializing-its forested setting is quiet and peaceful. The main entrance to the home is downstairs. Off the entry way there are the 3 bedrooms-#1 with a Queen bed, #2 with a Queen and a twin, and #3 with a Queen and 2 twins. The shared bath and laundry room are also off the entry.

We recently re-decorated and updated the home and also purchased new linens. Walk to the beach or hang out at home-Our family has been enjoying this home for generations, we are sure your family will also!

About Owner/Property Manager

Our parents built this home when we were in high school (1970s). It has been a year-round family gathering place all these years. Now we own a home 2 doors down, and my brother has a cabin in Agate Bay also!

Owner/Property Manager purchased this cabin in 1970

Why Owner/Property Manager chose Carnelian Bay

Agate Bay is a peaceful community of homes on large lots, a perfect place for long walks. Walking distance to the lake and close to skiing, restaurants and shopping. The perfect North shore location!

What makes this cabin unique

Serenity! Great North Lake Tahoe location. Walk to national forest land, snowshoeing, sledding areas.

Beautiful cabin with great living space

  • 5 of 5

We head up to Tahoe once or twice every year and this has been the best cabin yet. The living space is quite large with couches/chairs/tables for all of us up there for the weekend. The deck in the back is great for grilling on a cool summer evening. All the beds were quite comfortable and there was more than enough linens/towels/etc. for everyone to use. We had the wrong lock box code when we got there, but both Peter and Darla were very easy to reach and incredibly accommodating. Would definitely recommend and look forward to returning!

We really enjoyed our stay in Knob Hill. Everything worked great and the place was as clean as a whistle when we walked in. Loved the vintage appliances. Deck was awesome. Living room was spacious. Beds were cozy and plentiful. Thank you for opening your place to us!
