Charming Condo with Shared Pool, Hot Tub, Tennis, & Entertainment

The Carnelian Woods Charm provides a haven for relaxation with all the amenities you could want in your home away from home. This Carnelian Bay vacation rental includes access to community amenities like a hot tub and seasonal pool, and you'll be within walking distance to the most inviting beach in North Shore, numerous restaurants to please every palate, and miniature golf for an evening of friendly competition.

With Kings Beach just three miles up the road and Tahoe City about six miles away, you will enjoy being at the center of it all while still in the midst of nature. Alpine, Squaw and Northstar Ski Resorts are all within reach - not to mention that Crystal Bay, Nevada's historic casinos and nightlife, Incline Village, world-class restaurants, and the recreation center are all within a few miles of this great condo. You can also find plenty of opportunities for cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, snowshoeing and much more.

Go ahead and settle into this welcoming home, with plenty of wooded views and sunlight coming into the large windows. With plenty of room for your family to gather around the dining room table or the corner fireplace, you will enjoy unwinding after a long day of recreation.

In the evenings, gather in the great room to cook, relax on the balcony deck, read by the fire, dine at the table, and watch TV or movies. The main floor also features a full kitchen, and because it is open to the dining and living rooms, the cook will never miss out on the action.

There are two well-appointed bedrooms and a full bath on the entry level, one with two twin-sized beds and one with a queen, so you're never too far away from a good night sleep. The master bedroom on the second floor offers a king-sized bed, a balcony and a TV. It is attached to the second full bath, which is also accessible from the hallway. Both bathrooms are good-sized, one featuring a bath tub with shower and the other with an immaculate walk-in shower. The kids will love having their own space in the third-level loft, complete with a futon for additional sleeping space! Altogether, up to six guests can share this lovely North Lake Tahoe vacation rental very comfortably.

Carnelian Woods has so much to offer that you will never run out of things to do! Offering tennis courts, a seasonal pool, year-round hot tubs, a clubhouse with pool table and arcade, hiking, biking, and a par course, you'll enjoy all the amenities of a beautiful resort along with the privacy of your own vacation home. And in the home itself, you'll enjoy your own washer and dryer, Wi-Fi access for keeping in touch with friends back at home, and cable television.

Whether you visit the sparkly waters of Kings Beach in the summer or the adventurous slopes of Alpine Ski Resort in the winter, you'll feel right at home in this lovely Carnelian Bay vacation rental!

KSHITIJA S. Apr 2022
My friends and I loved the place. It is spacious for big groups. It is clean and well managed. However, this place was a little difficult to find especially if you are reaching during the night. And the entry door lock is a little tricky to open. Overall it was a great stay!
Manager response:
We appreciate your helpful feedback, Kshitija. We're always trying to improve our homes and services and rely on guest experiences to help us know how to best do that. Thank you for staying with us. We hope to host you again.

Great location, cozy home. Property manager doesn't allow drinks in the hot tub - a minor annoyance after a long day skiing but not a showstopper.
Alexander A. Jul 2021
Loved that there was tons of space and basic amenities. The location was perfect since we were close to the lake and other shops and entertainment. Couch was comfy, beds were comfy and had a nice tv for when we wound down for the night. Overall a great experience.
Stephen R. Apr 2021
Great location in the woods across the road a block or so from beautiful Lake Tahoe and good lay out for our party of 6 (parents, 2 boys-7 and 9, and grandparents). Cabinets and furnishings dated, supplies skimpy and dining bench broken, but still we felt it was good value and our family thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

We absolutely loved our stay. Everything was clean, organized, cozy and warm! If we could give it a 100 stars we would! Highly recommend staying here for a mini vacation! Thank you for making our Christmas holiday perfect!
Ann P. Sep 2019
It was a good location for all north and west activities. Very close to a super fun mini golf course. Didn’t use any facilities.
Michael B. Feb 2019
Well worth the price for this 3 bedroom.
Convenient location to multiple ski resports and a block from the lake.
Pamela C. Oct 2018
Beautiful, quiet, woodland setting.
Spacious, open, home with a comfy king bed and nice master bath. Kitchen was well equipped and we loved that the tap water was drinkable (not chlorinated). We did not have a chance to use the club house facilities but it looked nice!
Jonathan G. Sep 2018
Cozy place with all the comforts of home.
Lisa C. Jul 2018
The layout of this condo was really tremendous with room for everyone to have a bed with some privacy and share bathrooms easily. The furniture and shared areas were very comfortable and plenty of dished and nice towels. The kitchen was lacking some major basics including a pasta pot and a decent cookie sheet. The worst thing of all was the queen bed which should be tossed to the curb. Worst sleep I've had in ages.
Manager response:
We have made the owner aware of the comment regarding the mattress, and we have added the suggested cookware to the kitchen. Thank you!
Margaret M. Jul 2018
It had enough dishes and glasses and adequate supplies.
Michael A. May 2018
Quiet, cold a/c, plenty of sleeping room, wish the hot water lasted longer other than it was just lovely!

Cozy place to stay for winter vacation
Ashley G. Oct 2017
We've stayed here twice and love the location. About a 15 min drive to Tahoe city and about 20 min to squaw.
Jack C. Aug 2017
The condo itself was great. Next time we would prefer a better view from the balcony. We looked onto a road.
Anne H. Apr 2017
+: Spacious townhouse, well stocked kitchen, calm area.

Wifi was very slow.

Not advised for everybody to take their showers in a row - after three people, we ran out of hot water (but just had to wait it out - an hour later there was hot water for the remaining showers!).
Kyla S. Feb 2017
We had a great stay at the Carnelian bay condo. Plenty of room for a family of 4 and could have had more people stay with us! Loved the location!
Ashley G. Oct 2016
Great location to most area ski resorts. Very close drive to more restaurants located in Tahoe city. Condo fit my family of six really well. Could have even fit another two people in the loft area.
Brigitta V. Sep 2016
The unit we had at Carnelian Woods was well equipped, very clean and comfortable. The kitchen had everything you could ask for. Minor setback is the rather small balcony (actually 2 balconies) but both with seating for 2 guests at the most. The location is wonderful.
Kayla F. Mar 2016
We enjoyed our stay at this condo. It was clean,comfortable and well taken care of. We were able to fit 5 adults comfortably. All bedrooms were equipped with extra linens, the bathrooms were clean and recently updated. Nice water pressure too! Condo had a ton of old games and huge DVD collection. It was cozy, just wish we had some fresh snow when we were there!
Carl H. Feb 2016
Very affordable place centrally located between Major Ski Resorts (Alpine, Squaw, and Northstar) and very close to the lake. clean and was spacious enough for our family of 5. could use updating and its a bit dark inside.
Courtney W. Feb 2016
Everything was perfect. The hot tub could be closer to the condo, but that was a-ok. Please fix the broken coffee maker though! Great place, would love to stay again.
Nicole L. Aug 2015
This was perfect for us to spend with our family. There was plenty of room for us to spread out. The kitchen was well stocked so preparing meals was a breeze. We appreciated that we were able to use umbrellas and sand chairs. Extra linens were nice to have too. Thanks for sharing your home with us.
Annette C. Jul 2015
This was a great location for my needs. The price was reasonable, the place was clean and everybody in my party was impressed. It was in such a pretty spot although hard to find initially. I would definitely recommend this place to others.
Lixin S. Mar 2015
Great property for the price and location. Wish a little better maintained and cleaner.
Manager response:

We came to Carnelian Bay for Christmas, and we had the really good time, because it was snowing and felt like winter (it is only 4 hours drive from San Jose where we live, but what a difference in weather!). The condo itself is in a prime location (a little walk to the beautiful lake Tahoe), and very spacious, 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths, big living room and a big loft. What we didn't like - the noisy heater, broken shared bathroom door and slow Internet. The complex has club house with sauna and hot tub, and this was very nice. The kitchen is quite small, the refrigerator is small too, and very small dishwasher (but, I guess, big appliances would not fit in such small kitchen). The kitchen has all dishes, glasses, silverware, etc, lots of extra stuff. The fireplace is very cozy. Bathroom are big, and the water pressure is very good. If you have a small company, like 5-6 people max, then you could really enjoy your stay in this condo.

Great place to stay.
