My family of 5 stayed at the Wilderness Retreat for a 4 day vacation during August. It was a short walk to the pebble beach where we could rent kayaks and paddleboards. Very kid and dog friendly beach, although next time we will bring water shoes for the rocks. We had a great time playing Bocce at the rec center. It was so much fun we played it on two different days. This condo was a great location since it was only minutes away from Tahoe City, Truckee, Northstar and Squaw Valley. We ventured out every day and were amazed at how quickly we could experience an entirely different area of Lake Tahoe. Our entire family had a great time and we all agreed that we will be coming back next year! I highly recommend the condo due to its location, amenities and ease of renting.

Great location and value. Enjoyed the amenities including the recreation center. Townhouse is well appointed. Maintenance was very responsive (there were some lights out). Only comment is it is a little darker than it appears, even with all the lights on. Still, great place. There are written instructions for everything, including TV, cable, etc... thank God!

The reservation process went smoothly. When we had minor car trouble driving to Tahoe and had to delay our arrival, First Accomodations was very helpful. The condo was exactly as advertised; it was very clean and everything worked as it should (which has not always been my experience with vacation rentals). The beds were comfortable with good quality linens. Kitchen was stocked with everything we needed to cook meals. The gas fireplace provided warmth when needed and there were fans to cool us down when it was too hot. The unit was well located, easy walking distance to beach, restaurants, and miniature golf.
I would recommend this unit to friends.

Visited from MA. My partner and I flew in and met my two kids and their boyfriend and girlfriend. Plenty of room for all and two baths was needed. We had our privacy downstairs while the kids were upstairs. We have stayed in theses condos a few times and really like the location and what they offer for the price. Baths had been updated but kitchen is due.

This condo is walking distance from the fabulous pool, sauna and spas as well as from the Lake. The unit itself is very comfortable and tastefully decorated. The newly remodeled bathrooms are lovely and the showerheads are awesome. The kitchen isn't gourmet, but it is fully stocked with more pots and pans, dishware, cutlery and glassware than you need. The dishwasher is excellent and the fridge is immaculate. We would return. Very well priced.

First the positive. Very well painted and decorated. So enjoyed the beautiful art work! Love the bath improvements.
Negative would be, very dark and sort of depressing as a result. There's prob not a lot you can do about that, however that was the down side for us.
Overall, we had a great time.

The only concern about this lovely property was the snow maintenance in the parking and driveway area. Snow removal was not good at all, and our car, with snow chains, got stuck trying to enter the street where the condo was located. Later, we were afraid to park the car because the parking lot has a distinct slope to it and was covered in black ice. To add to the problem, the condo itself had no snow shovel, so we couldn't even dig out a parking space for ourselves. The condo is about 10 mi from the closest ski area, which is about a 30 min trek with chains on. This is probably a better place to stay in the summer.

We've stayed at Carnelian Woods condos for over 30 summers. This unit was very nice. A little dark though, but when there are units on either side of you, it is tough to get more windows. Very nice unit otherwise.

We loved this place! The beds are comfortable, the kitchen has everything you need, the heating (in the winter) works like a charm, the place is spacious with plenty of room for your stay and it's really affordable. It's also close to all the North Tahoe ski resorts. The place is great and we definitely want to stay here again in the Winter and Summer. Thank you!

Overall the place is nice, enough rooms to sleep 6 people. Here are just a few things I didn't like: the common areas (living, kitchen) are a little small for 5 or more people.
The beds were not very comfortable (too soft and worn out, kept rolling into the center).
I loved the remodeled bathrooms.
It would also be nice if the driveway to the parking lots were kept ice free, not everybody has a four wheel drive!
