Description

Need a place in North Tahoe for the whole family (or two families) to stay under one roof? With room to sleep ten guests, this is the perfect townhome for your Forest Retreat! There are three king beds and four twin beds in this spacious, four-bedroom home away from home—near everything in the Carnelian Woods complex in Carnelian Bay.

Plenty of windows allow for natural light in this bright and open space. The kitchen, bathrooms, and flooring were recently renovated so it's sure to please.

The entry level includes two bedrooms, each boasts a comfortable king-sized bed and TV. One of the bedrooms has a glass sliding door to the covered deck and the other has a window seat. There is also a full bath with a tub/shower. The laundry closet is just across the hall.

On the second level, the living room, dining area, and kitchen are all together, so everyone can gather in one place. You’ll also find the third bedroom with king-sized bed, large windows, and window seat, and the second full bathroom. Plenty of bath linens are provided.

In the living room, relax and warm up by the wood-burning fireplace. There's a flat screen TV with cable and DVD player and Wi-Fi to keep everyone entertained, or, sink into the cozy sofas and connect with a good conversation. Step out on the adjacent covered deck and admire the forest views.

With all those people, at times it’s easier and more economical to stay in for meals. The well-equipped kitchen features stainless steel appliances and granite countertops and includes everything you need to prepare a hearty breakfast, a quick snack, or a home-cooked dinner. You can also grill on the deck barbeque. The dishwasher makes clean up a breeze. There are six chairs at the large dining table and four more chairs at the breakfast bar.

The cute loft bedroom on the third level has four twin beds and a TV.

The grounds feature lovely landscaping, and there is so much to do, everyone can take their pick: a game of tennis, swimming in the seasonal pool, soaking in the hot tub, playing billiards or video games at the clubhouse, taking on the parcourse, or hiking and biking on the trails right at Carnelian Woods!

In Carnelian Bay, all of north Lake Tahoe is right at your doorstep! Take the kids and stroll down to Magic Carpet mini golf. You’re also within walking distance to Waterman’s Landing, located at Patton Landing, a 3-acre, pebbly beach known for stand up paddling.

Ready to play in the snow? You’re only 10-12 miles from three great ski resorts—Alpine Meadows, Squaw Valley, and Northstar. Whether you prefer to downhill or cross country ski, snowboard, snowshoe, or go sledding or ice skating, North Tahoe has a place for every winter activity.

Closer to home, you'll find superb dining options right in town like Gar Woods Grill and Pier for steaks and fish, the Old Post Office Coffee Shop for hearty breakfasts, and CB's Pizza for hand-tossed pies and beer.

Gambling and nightlife are a short drive away, across the Nevada border.

NOTE: Hot Tubs open daily in summer and winter, Saturdays only in spring and fall. Pool open summer only. Start and end dates will vary based on weather.

Overall happy with this vacation rental. Great location, close to Northstar and close to Safeway. Property was clean, but the carpets are a little worn. The bedding was a little dated. Also, the temperature on the bottom floor was very cold, a bit difficult to regulate. Property managers were easy to work with, quick to respond. Overall, I would stay here again.

I booked the cabin for a family vacation and I am more than happy with my choice of picking the town house in Carnelian Bay. It was clean and the place was updated for the most part. The rest of my family loved the place as well.

The owners BOOK on the table for comments, from the person who left the morning before we left, talks about "FLEAS" and the bed sheets not being changed, we found no such problem. We were very satisfied.

We have only 1 request. In the DVD Player, my 7-year old son left a Christmas Present, the DVD "Despicable Me". May I request that you "knock on the door" with the current people and ask for this DVD. We would be happy to reimburse you office for postage. Please confirm found and send regular mail. Thanks so much!

I would have given this rental 5 stars in every category, however upon arriving we discovered the dish washer was broken. We had to call for maintenance. Also no dish towels were provided so we had to call for those as well. The nice part was someone was sent out right away for repairs and to send dish towels.

What a perfect spot for our family! We had three generations (grandparents, two kids (+partners) and two grandkids) all here and it was perfect. The kids took the loft (which did mean we all had to be quiet in the kitchen/living room at bedtime, but we kept them up late so it didn't affect too much), the grandparents and kids-free took the downstairs, and the parents took the room on the main floor. Everyone had their own space, but the common area was perfect for all coming together. The location had absolutely everything you could need - walk to the water (about five minutes), a few great eats in walking distance, mini-golf, pool, running trails. Plus, even though it's a townhouse, when you are sitting in the main room, you can't see a single other building - you feel like you are completely secluded in the forest. The townhouse also had everything we needed. Heads up: if you have little kids, the spacing on the rails/stairs could be a little tricky (we definitely had to drill into our four- and five-year-old not to stick their heads/body parts through), but it really wasn't an issue for us since they are big enough to listen! All in all - loved it! The grandparents made sure that I would save this spot so that we can go back!!

Very pleased with the cleanliness and modernization of this unit. We have visited Carnelian Woods since the 70's and were pleasantly surprised to find the old charm combined with upgraded amenities. We will be returning next summer for a longer stay.

This was a perfect spot for us to celebrate with friends! We had 8 people comfortably stay in this home, with quick access to Squaw for skiing. The view on a snow weekend was breathtaking, and playing games in front of the warm fire was exactly what we needed. The kitchen had everything we needed, was roomy for us to cook together, and the closets for storing our skis kept everything organized. The property management was incredibly responsive and exceeded our expectations. I hope to return and highly recommend this rental to anyone!

My alumnni group has stayed in this complex a number of times over the years on ski trips, and once again, everything was great.

Only minor complaint is the parking pass hassle ... especially as we were about the only cars there that weekend.
