This one bedroom plus loft end unit with mountain and filtered lake views offers a private, quiet location. With room to sleep four guests, it’s perfect for a small family or romantic getaway. Located in the Carnelian Woods townhome complex in Carnelian Bay—make yourself at home in the North Tahoe vacation spot near everything!

You’ll feel refreshed after a vacation at this Relaxing Retreat! Inside or out, enjoy all the views—filtered lake, mountain, and forest—from your living room, balcony, and loft master suite.

Put your feet up and rest on the comfortable sofa while you watch TV by the cozy gas fireplace. Wi-Fi keeps you connected. Or go outside and take in views as you barbeque on the covered balcony, located off the living room.

The well-equipped kitchen has everything you need to prepare a hearty breakfast, a quick snack, or a home-cooked dinner and the dishwasher makes clean up a breeze. There is seating for two at the breakfast bar and four chairs at the dining table.

The washer and dryer are around the corner, along with a half bath. The main-level bedroom has a trundle bed—two twins—with linens to keep your dreamers snug all night.

Upstairs on the loft, the master suite has a comfortable queen bed and a full bathroom with plenty of bath linens. This is a great vantage point to admire the views from your Relaxing Retreat!

When you’re ready to venture outside, keep everyone entertained in this perfect vacation setting. The Recreation Center / Lodge features a swimming pool, two outdoor hot tubs, locker room saunas, a game room with billiards, a video game arcade, tennis and bocce courts, and a fitness trail. The complex backs up to Tahoe National Forest, offering miles of hiking, biking, cross-country skiing, and other activities year-round.

Your home away from home is in Carnelian Bay, where all North Lake Tahoe is right at your doorstep! Stroll down to Magic Carpet mini golf or check out Waterman’s Landing, located at Patton Landing Beach, a 3-acre, pebbly beach known for stand-up paddling.

To experience Lake Tahoe gambling and nightlife, Incline Village and Nevada's historic casino Crystal Bay are a short drive away, just across the state line.

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.

You're only 10-12 miles from three great ski resorts—Northstar, Alpine Meadows, and Squaw Valley. Whether you prefer to downhill or cross-country ski, snowboard, snowshoe, or go sledding or ice skating, North Tahoe is the place for winter fun.

At Squaw Valley, after conquering the slopes, go tubing with the kids or try out the mini snowmobiles at SnoVentures Activity Zone. There are dogsledding tours too!

In every season, the Village at Squaw Valley offers dining, shopping, the Squaw Valley Aerial Tram, and a variety of activities.

In the summer, ride the Aerial Tram to High Camp then choose a scenic trail and walk or hike in one of the most breathtaking places in the world! At 8,200 feet elevation, admire the beauty of the Sierra Nevada Mountains with views of Lake Tahoe and Squaw Valley's legendary granite peaks. In the Aerial Tram building lobby, kids and grownups can have a blast climbing the variety of routes on the 30’ simulated Headwall Climbing Wall. If you dare, learn how to do a front or back somersault at Skyjump; all ages are welcome.

NOTE: Carnelian Woods 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.

"Comfortable Stay
This was a very comfortable condo. It was convenient to get to Squaw for skiing and had good amenities. My only wish is that it had a better shower head. Other than that, it was great. "
Feb 22, 2019 - , Santa Clara, CA

Excellent. Could fix the super squeaky floor, though."
Aug 27, 2018 - Brian C., Houston, TX

"Had a wonderful time at Carnelian Bay!
We really enjoyed our stay. Very private and quiet end unit condo was up against the forest with birds, squirrels and chipmunks visiting daily. Our 7 year old enjoyed the pool and recreation room. Everything exceeded our expectations and it sure beats staying in a hotel.

The Post Office Café was great for breakfast. The Treetop Adventure Park was an absolute blast for all of us, including the 7 year old. She also caught her first two fish, a 17" and 15" trout at the South Lake Tahoe fish farm.

I highly recommend this beautiful place. The owner and manager were great."
Jul 29, 2018 - Glenn D.

"Reasonable Stay
To be honest, I was expecting a little more from the place. I must’ve misread the ad. I was expecting twin queen beds. There was one queen bed in the loft and a single bed in the bedroom. The setting in North Lake was great. Everything else was just ok. I probably wouldn’t stay here again."

Easy, peaceful and relaxing"

"cosy retreat
accommodation was good, well presented and comfortable. Only negative was the heating system which was forced air which was very noisey and would wake you up in the night. Being winter we couldnt turn it off, would be ok in summer i would think"

"Great Family Vacation
Central to all the favorites spots, with everything you need. "

"Carneilian Woods #155
We stayed at the unit for 4 nights and it was great. Nice gas fire place, clean, comfortable unit, good beds and the kitchen was very well equipped. Had more pots, pans and accessories than most. Gas BBQ was high quality and worked great. Loved the view of Lake Tahoe. "
Mar 20, 2017 - Robert A., Kailua, HI

"Tranquil retreat
Our family had a lovely getaway at this property. Our corner unit was situated right next to the forest and we had partial views of Lake Tahoe, it was beautiful. The property itself was just as described, perfect for our family of 4. Everything was just as described and would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a quiet and beautiful getaway. "

"We did not want to leave!
Clean and comfortable. The property was as described. The property and facilities were great for our family. The location was terrific. Highly recommend this place and will stay here again."
Jul 09, 2016 - Alexander H., dallas, TX

"Don't stay here!
This place had terrible beds, ants in the kitchen which wasn't stocked well. Linens smelled terribly strong of soap/dryer sheets. TV system didn't work well and place was small."
Jul 04, 2016 - , Lompoc, CA

"A little piece of Heaven
Wanted R&R with my partner and Carnelian Bay was more than we expected. Gorgeous views, sunrises and sunsets. We will definitely be making Taboe our recurring romantic retreat."
Feb 29, 2016 - Jennifer F., Bayonne, NJ

"Nice location quiet property
We had two nights here to explore Lake Tahoe. We had a great time. The deck is small for BBQ ing - not enough space for four to eat there, so we had to eat inside. The pool was a short walk away and made a nice place to relax. We rented a pedal boat on the lake. "
Sep 15, 2015 - Carolyn C., Southampton, Hants

"Carnelian Woods Townhouse
Accommodating very nice,would stay there again."
Aug 24, 2015 - Virginia S., San Mateo, CA

"North Tahoe Condo
Enjoyed the location of the condo. No road noise, but still accessible to local infrastructure support, ie restaurants, activities, etc. Bed linen could be replaced, upstairs bathroom sink stopped had to be opened with a knife, and the downstairs bathroom fan did not work. The dryer seemed to be venting into the room. Condo was clean and the kitchen was very adequate. Condo was an end unit, and had a great view of Lake Tahoe from the deck. Good view out other windows to the pine forest."

"Tahoe Ski-cation
Very good, it was as described. Although amenities should have stated hairdryer and paper products; I wouldn't have brought mine. "
Mar 15, 2015 - , Schenectady, NY

"Great place to stay for a Ski vacation
Our family of 4 (2 adults, 2 kids) stayed here for a ski trip. There was plenty of room for everyone. The property was clean and well maintained, and the location is perfect for going to Squaw/Alpine, Northstar, or a number of other local resorts. The only negative is that the heater is somewhat loud when it turns on. "
Mar 05, 2015 - Mike D., Campbell, CA

"Perfect for a couple or small family
I rented this place for a week to work on my dissertation. It was the perfect place for me. Lots of natural light with views into the surrounding woods. It was cozy, clean, and quiet. Everything I needed was there. The master bed wasn't very comfortable but other than that everything met to my satisfaction. I especially loved the gas fireplace and the vaulted ceiling. My only regret was not being there with my husband to enjoy the place and surrounding area with me. Thank you for a wonderful stay. "
Dec 30, 2014 - Rochelle S., Fairfield, CA

"Great place for a relaxing escape
The cabin is very cosy and the pictures reflect it well.
It was very clean. You could it had just been cleaned when we got there.
The kitchen is well equipped and the bed has a hard but confirmable mattress.
Extra pillows and blankets were available and the towels were good.
The location is very quiet and close to the lake. Other attractions are not far away but you definitely need a car.
I was planning to have some peaceful and quiet time and a place to rest. This cabin was perfect dor this purpose."
Dec 28, 2014 - Ed M.

"Great townhome.
The place is very nice and has everything you need in the kitchen and bathrooms (plus grill, wifi and cable). The location is a bit isolated but close enough to some of the main towns on the north side of lake Tahoe. We are already planning to go back next year."
Sep 28, 2014 - , Dublin, CA

"Great vacation spot
We had a great time. The house was perfect for our family needs will definitely use them again and recommend to friends. "
Sep 02, 2014 - Tim D., Salinas, CA

"Perfect for a small family
Stayed for a week in mixed weather in August. Management was professional and responsive to some minor maintenance issues. The rec center with hot tubs, pool tables and games came in handy for rainy days. Waterman's landing just down the street is a great place to rent paddleboards. "
Aug 17, 2014 - katrin s., Walnut Creek, CA

"Carnelian Woods - July 4th, 2014
We thoroughly enjoy our Tahoe vacation each year, and we LOVE CW155! It is cool and clean and quiet. We have been renting CW155 for the first week in July, for the past 7 years. It is in walking distance to the pool, beach, mini golf, hiking, pizza, Garwoods, OPO! It is an easy drive one way to Kings Beach for the fireworks on 7/3, and the other way to Tahoe City for rafting on the Truckee! A wonderful vacation every time!!!"

"Great Spot
This is a great cozy unit for a small family. Quite end unit will all the amenities and very well kept! Very much enjoyed our stay : )"
Mar 11, 2014 - , Redwood City , Ca

"Loved the Property - The Management Company needs to fire a guy
The property was very well kept and had all sorts of little amenities that made it a great stay at a really great price. There is a peaceful view of the lake through the trees on the porch.

It actually reminded me of a friend's Parents' home in VT where we'd go to cross country ski. It made me feel like I was at home.

We were on our honeymoon. When we arrived there was a voucher on the counter for us for a nice restaurant given to us by the company my Husband works for.

When I signed up for the property I did it on a holiday weekend and when reading the contract had questions. I assumed they wouldn't be open and didn't call. (Then I forgot about it.) When I received a reminder call from the company, the guy was about the most rude person I have ever talked to. (I don't believe this guy works on site. I believe he works for wherever the management company is.) He was condescending and bitchy. I was in the wrong but he could have started, continued, and ended the conversation in a much more professional manner than he did.

Additionally, he wanted to charge the company my Husband works for 25 dollars to put a piece of paper (the restaurant voucher) into our rental unit. Thank goodness the person at the company pushed back on the guy. He made a deal that if they drew it up and send it over, that someone would only have to put it into the unit. (That was completely unethical on the management's part. I hope that is not common practice. I would also hope it was this individual's own genius idea.)

I really want to report the person but I didn't get his name. It upsets me that a significant trip of my life was tainted by such a scumbag.

As a side note: anyone we dealt with at the actual location were absolutely fine to deal with. We only really ever saw one person that gave us our parking tag. He was quite pleasant."
Dec 21, 2011 - Karen R., Las Vegas, NV

"Mid-September at Carnelian Woods
We really loved the peace and quiet of this place. The fireplace in our unit (#155) was a plus. You could see Lake Tahoe in the distance in a very picturesque way. We only regretted that the pool closes mid-September, so we couldn't use it the last day. Otherwise, we would definitely recommend our unit."
Sep 22, 2011 - , Santa Rosa, CA

"Had a great stay!
The townhouse was very clean, and it had a nice view of the trees. The only two suggestions I can make is to update the Living room furniture. The tv was very small also. Lastly, the bedroom downstairs had a twin size bed. It really should be at least
a double bed. "
Sep 07, 2011 - Tania O., San Ramon, CA

We give the unit and complex a 5+! We will definitely return and recommend to friends. Thanks Brent."
Aug 06, 2011 - Anita H., Fairfield, CA

"Enjoyable Townhouse
I would recommend #CW155 in Carnelian Bay, CA. Our family enjoyed a relaxing snowy memorial weekend there. Our daughter played in the snow and made a snowman. The townhouse was clean and well maintained. Carnelian Bay is a beautiful location. Garwoods is less than 1/3rd of a mile away. Kings Beach is a short 10 minute drive. The only issues we had were the gas fireplace did not work and the townhouse did not provide a BBQ."
Jun 22, 2011 - , Folsom, CA

"Pre Holiday quiet
Stayed the week prior to Memorial Day - very quiet - but it did snow every day (4) that we were there. Will surely come back again next year."
Jun 22, 2011 - Kenneth J., Dublin, CA

Jan 11, 2011 - , San Jose, CA

"We had a wonderful time
We found the house in great condition except for minor things. Like the door of the bathroom on ground level makes noise and is sticky. "
Sep 29, 2010 - Dharmendra S., Fremont, CA

"Had a great experience!
The property was clean, well-equipped and very well-maintained. The staff was very helpful & polite. Trent was very helpful - he even emailed us some good eating places around Carnelian Bay, which was very helpful. The view of the lake though was really small, but that was expected. Otherwise, the property is very nicely located to almost everything one can do in & around Carnelian Bay. Very good overall experience!"

"Nice Unit
We have stayed in several of the units and I must say that Unit 155 is by far the nicest. It has very nice, clean and plush carpets in the bedrooms, living and dining room and up the stairs. The mattress in the master bedroom was on the stiff side, but I slept just fine on it. The onsight management has some issues and could use some customer service training but the person I talked to on the phone was great. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars for condition of property was that there were some scuff marks on the walls in the entry and downstairs bedroom."

"the best vacations around Lake Tahoe
we were very near from all resorts (Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, Northstar)
Apr 21, 2010 - jean-pierre v., PUNAAUIA, Tahiti

Problems: the gas fireplace was impossible to light and had no instructions and did not respond to the thermostat.
The tub drain leaked out all the water no matter what allowing no bath!
Other wise sweet place"
Feb 24, 2010 - david m., san anselmo, ca

We were very pleased with the condo. It fit our needs perfectly. We would stay there again."
Oct 19, 2009 - , Phoenix, AZ

"Quiet location
This unit has a very private and quiet location. It also has a nice partial view of the lake from the balcony. I would stay here again. It's an older unit and does show some wear, but it was clean and contained everything we needed for a comfortable stay."
Sep 30, 2009 - Michael D., Reading, VT

Only thing I didn't like - that we had to pay for cleaning and yet we were asked to strip the beds of linen before we left. That really turned me off."
Sep 10, 2009 - Susan C., Sebastopol, CA

"Stay at the 'Birdhouse'
We call this condo the birdhouse because of the wonderful birds you can
observe from the deck...there is a great
partial view of the lake also...since this condo is the on the end, you really
feel the serenity of the is very quiet...we cooked some great meals
in the fully equipped kitchen...we would and will stay again."
Jul 27, 2009 - Susan P., Minden, NV

"Downstairs bathroom fan extremely noisey. Nextdoor neighbors kids could be heard running up and down their stairs late at night.
Jul 22, 2009 - , Santa Rosa, Ca.

"Nice condo, checkout is too early
The property was fine; a couple of complaints: 1) checking out by 10AM is too early, 11AM is more reasonable (it is a 'vacation' after all); 2) the condo management has a long list of cleaning things you are supposed to do before you checkout, which makes me wonder why they even have cleaning staff. "
Apr 25, 2009 - Andrea A., San Jose, CA

"Lake Tahoe Stay
The accommodation had obviously been cleaned some time ago as we walked into several cobwebs across the stairs and in the hallways.

The local advice booklet that was in the house was more concerned with house rules than local information.

The facilities in the house were very good. Everything worked well.

The house location was out of the way in the woods away from the roads. Being closer to the Lake would have been nice but having a partial Lake View was OK.

My main issue with the place was the spiders, cobwebs all over the place. My wife even had a fairly large spider drop onto her when she was sleeping. Large enough to wake her up.

As we were told that check in was not until 4pm as the house was being cleaned I expected more. If the house was cleaned properly then it would be good value.
Apr 24, 2009 - Stephen R., Las Vegas, NV

"Terrific Condo in Quiet Neighborhood
We enjoyed the condo very much since it was in just the right area, close to Tahoe City and Kings Beach, but tucked away on the side of the mountain with view of the lake and pines. The only reason I did'nt give a perfect score is a couple spots on the carpet."
Sep 07, 2008 - Robert F., Fairfax, VA

The downstairs half bath's fan was VERY loud. From other reviews I have read, it seems, this problem has not been fixed for over a year. Otherwise, a lovely mountain escape."
Aug 14, 2008 - Holly E., San Francisco, CA

"Our stay at Carnelian Bay was very enjoyable. We had a nice view and the surroundings were beautiful. My grandaughter really enjoyed the pool and miniture golf. The townhouse was relaxing and comfortable. We would like to go again.

"Great Place
We were extremely pleased with the location. The area was very quiet. The unit itself was clean and stocked with all necessities. We also enjoyed the amenities of the complex (i.e. pool, recreation room etc.). We would certainly choose this unit again."
Jul 29, 2008 - , Santa Clara, CA

"#CW155 is the best unit we've encountered so far!
We love the fact that this unit is on the end! We also LOVED the amenities, from the beautiful granite in the kitchen, to the up-to-date tile in the master bath. This is a great unit, one we will want to rent in the future!"
Jul 08, 2008 - Kerri C., Concord, CA

"The whole thing was better than I had expected.
Easy to get to. Easy to find. Great food, great wakks, fantastic bicycling. This is worth a repeat - I plan on going again in the Fall."
Jun 03, 2008 - Ken J., Dublin, CA

"Home Away From Home
The kids were a little sad when we left the Tennis and Racket-Ball Club we had been staying at for 7 days, before arriving at Carnelian Bay. But, after driving into Carnelian Bay and walking into our Condo Unit, the boys literally jumped for joy! We can't wait to come back! "
Apr 30, 2008 - Paul & Maureen G., Long Beach, Ca.

"We had a great time. The place couldn't have been nicer. Well appointed, very comfortable, personable, quite location, nice hiking trails, away from the hustle bustle - but not too far away when we needed anything. We'll stay again. Thanks.
