This charmingly decorated Carnelian Woods townhome sleeps four guests—perfect for your next vacation and ideal for two couples or a small family. When you're not skiing down the slopes or enjoying a day out on Lake Tahoe, the complex has excellent amenities—a pool, hot tub, tennis courts, and more, all at a super convenient location in North Tahoe!
Your home away from home features beautiful wood flooring and vaulted ceilings. Put your feet up in the open living room and warm up by the gas fireplace; you’ll feel right at home relaxing on the comfortable furniture. Catch up on the news or watch a movie on the flat screen TV. Listen to tunes on the stereo or use the Wi-Fi to make a game of finding the greatest number of songs with “Mountain High” in the title.
Barbeque on the adjacent covered deck year-round and take in the forest view as you sip your favorites beverage. Or prepare a gourmet meal in the sparkling, fully-equipped kitchen with granite countertops, two-tone wood cabinets, and stainless-steel appliances, including the all-important dishwasher. There is seating for four at the nearby table.
If your clothes get wet playing in the snow or lake, toss a load of laundry in the handy washer and dryer.
The downstairs half bath is adjacent to the bedroom with queen bed and desk. Upstairs on the loft you’ll find a comfy king bed and a full bathroom. Both bathrooms include brushed nickel fixtures and plenty of bath linens.
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, billiards, 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.

Mountain High 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 Amenities: Hot Tubs are Typically open daily in summer, Friday and Saturdays the rest of the year. Pool and Tennis open summer only. Amenity access never guaranteed. Please check website for availability: carnelianwoodsorg

"Good location
The condo was very clean which was appreciated. The location was perfect as well. It is extremely basic and did leave more to be desired. Probably the most bare bones places I’ve stayed in. One small, thinblanket on the couch in the dead of winter, no soap in the shower, no extra pillows beyond the two in the beds,, towels, 4 rolls of TP, one roll paper towels(we didn’t need extras but just noticed how different it was from most others). The kitchen was probably the most bare bones. Other reviews said there was salt and pepper but we only had salt. Maybe one of the other groups snagged the salt! ;) no nonstick spray or olive oil to use in the old pans, no baggies, foil, or Saran Wrap. It was interesting how to figure out how to store leftover food. Glasses are kid size and cookware is old and had to be cleaned before use. The downstairs bed is also extremely soft. My back was aching every morning. TV only has cable. No streaming (which wasn’t advertised but just noted). Overall the place is clean, fireplace is nice, view out the back is nice, but be prepared to bring every single thing you might need. I’d probably stay here again and just be prepared to have to bring what we need. "

"Carnilian Bay-72
Awesome! Place was perfect for us. Clean and close to our family"s cabin"

"Very comfy
Just very happy with everything."

"Nice Stay, Bring Your Necessities
Good location, nice accomodations, clear communication with property managers. A couple things we were not prepared for -
1) Bring everything you'll need. They don't carry any extras: no extra towels, toilet paper (2 rolls in each bathroom) paper towels (1 back up). Also only found salt and pepper in cabinets. If you're planning on cooking, bring everything you're goin got need.
2. The king size bed is in the loft area, open to the rest of the house. This is also where the only shower is located. We weren't expecting that but we made it work.
3. Very limited delivery options. Unfortunately we had car trouble on our last night when we were planning on going out for dinner. Roadside assistance couldn't find anyone to come out and help us without it being way overpriced ($300-$450 for a battery jump). We decided to order food instead. No Doordash, Uber Eats, Postmates available. The only place we could get to deliver food was Jiffy's Pizza, which was ok but not the greatest.
Overall it was a comfortable stay and would recommend the property just come well prepared."

"Comfortable Rental with Minimal Amenities
Overall, we really enjoyed our time at Mountain High. The location is great - its in a family-friendly neighborhood, surrounded by beautiful woodsy trees.

The airbnb itself was underwhelming. Though the listing does state that minimal amenities are provided (no shampoo, conditioner, butter, etc), it was still surprising to be in such a bare bones airbnb. We've never stayed anywhere that didnt even have butter in the fridge or sugar in the cabinet. You really do have to bring everyyyyything you want for a comfortable stay. Additionally, there was a lot of cat hair in the rental (?) which is odd since the listing states no pets.

We were comfortable overall, but I think I'd find something with more creature comforts the next time."

"Wonderful stay
Cute townhouse in a great location. Very clean and quiet. We were close to all the summer fun: water sports, golf, and restaurants. We had a problem with an appliance, and the property management was quick and thorough in their response, with great communication. "
Sep 24, 2022 - Eileen L., San Miguel, CA

"Quiet and clean condo
The condo is an end unit and very quiet. There is plenty of parking and the unit has everything you might need. "

"Great stay in Tahoe!
Exactly as described, clean and comfortable space close to everything."
Apr 06, 2022 - , Woodland Hills, CA

"Fine but wouldn't stay again
The pictures are way better than in person. The property is a bit grimy and a little banged up. I believe it was cleaned properly but it didn't feel clean. The whole unit could use an update. Unit didn't provide coffee or shampoo/conditioner. "

Super clean and comfortable."

"Mountain High
Unexpectedly we were moved to this location. The townhome was fine, but I was expecting to be on Carnelian Bay road which has views and is higher up. Our townhome was dark, with little living room natural light. I found myself staying upstairs in the loft bedroom to have light. It was a little disappointing. "

"Great Carnelian Bay Rental
This is the 2nd time we rented this unit and have been really happy with it both times. The location is fantastic - a short walk to Gar Woods and CBs. Fireplace is awesome on a cold day."
Feb 18, 2020 - Melissa G., Concord, CA

"Clean and Comfortable
We had a lovely stay at this clean and comfortable vacation rental. We love the new appliances in the kitchen and it was well furnished. We would recommend this rental to future guests. The only setback is the full bath is upstairs. It would be more convenient if the half bath on the main floor has a shower since the other guests in the second bedroom have to come into the master bedroom to shower.

Jan 07, 2020 - Jane L., San Francisco, CA

"Cozy Home
Condo is very cozy. Location was great and easy to get to. Close to Safeway and not too far away from Squaw Valley.

Property was overall clean, bathroom and kitchen were stocked. Bedroom was a little outdated and the blankets seem to be a bit old.

Communication with property management was great. Would definitely recommend property to others. "

"Comfortable accommodations
Well maintained townhome met our needs very nicely. Clean and convenient. Both bathrooms are modern. Written instructions for the tv remotes would have been helpful."

"Beautiful area
We didn't mind the condo. We expected the bed and furniture to be a little more comfortable."
Jun 11, 2019 - Trisha Y., Holmen, WI

"Nice place
Overall, we enjoyed our stay here. It was very clean, the kitchen was nice, and we appreciated having everything we needed to cook our meals. It was in a great location, making it easy to get to where we wanted to go. I will say that this place is not ideal for people who like to hang out and relax reading a book. We came back to the place exhausted after a day of skiing and just wanted to curl up with a book and relax. However, the couches were hard, small and the cushions (which were made of plastic) kept sliding out from under us. We used the table chairs to sit in later, and that was not great either. If you are only there to sleep and take a shower, but need a kitchen to prepare food, then this is a great place. I gave the place 3 stars, because I feel the lack of comfortable furniture took away from our experience."
Apr 18, 2019 - Nancy T., Orinda, CA

"Charming Condo with nice location
The property was easy to book. Property mgmt was very nice and responsive. The condo was clean, nice location higher up on the mountain at the end of the complex, very quiet. Watching the snow fall through the balcony glass door was extra special. Will book again!"
Apr 01, 2019 - mike m., South SF, CA

"Good condo, but super-soft beds
The condo was nicely appointed with a spacious living room. The kitchen had the necessary equipment for making meals. The gas grill was nice to have. The beds, however, were both very uncomfortable. Extremely soft mattresses. My back ached every night and I tossed and turned all night long. "

"Mountain High Rental
We enjoyed this townhouse. It is in a beautiful location with plenty of room and conveniences not available in a hotel. We enjoyed the gas fireplace for warmth and ambiance. Checking in and out was very easy. Just know that this area did not have good cellular service or at least not for our carrier. The wireless internet was just fine, no problems"
Sep 27, 2018 - Mary R., Cincinnati, OH

"Clean and cozy!
The beds were comfortable, the kitchen was updated and included salt, pepper and Pam cooking spray. We made use of a few games and the BBQ on the patio. The condo is small but great for a couple or small family. Washer and dryer outdated but worked fine. I overlooked that the bedroom upstairs is loft style. The slats upstairs were very apppealing to my 2 year old. "

"Mountain High Condo Carnelian Bay
The most important thing to me with a vacation rental is cleanliness, and it was very clean. It was also recently renovated, which helps a lot. Just as important is comfortable beds, and they were very comfortable. Next is location--Carnelian Bay has been the location in Tahoe that has worked best for me in relation to things I want to do in Tahoe. The condo itself was far enough off the main road so it was quiet and peaceful. The pictures of the condo make it look much bigger than it actually is, but for two of us it was perfect and we didn't spend much time there anyway."

We enjoyed the condo, great location and comfortable and clean. "

"Ski Vacation Get-A-Way
We enjoyed our stay. The condo is as pictured and had everything we needed. I would stay at this property again. "
Jan 29, 2018 - , Plymouth, MN

The space was pretty similar to the photos. The location is great. There is salt/pepper in the kitchen, but nothing else to cook with. We were given exactly 4 towels for 4 of us, no extra towels were around. There is also no shampoo available for you. Trent was somewhat rude/short/cold in our communication and when we checked in, the code to the door did not work and we had no way to contact him directly (the phone number was to the main office and they never answered). Definitely do not assume this place has a hot tub as listed because it is only open Friday/Saturday and “closes” at 8:45pm, although when we arrived just after 8pm, the employee said he was closing it so he could get home. The welcome packet also had the incorrect WiFi code. In general, was not impressed or pleased by the lack of hospitality and accuracy usually common for Airbnb hosts, especially for the cost of this place during off season."

"Review of property
This was a great property - the location was great proximity to town and the lake. Would have liked having a few more things in the kitchen (e.g., Pam spray, oil) or indicate in the listing that those small additions aren't included in the kitchen as they've been in all other Air BnBs that I've stayed in. Overall great place and would recommend it. Thanks! "

"A bit too toasty
This was our fourth stay at Carnelian Woods, in a different unit each time. This is a lovely unit that has been updated, and has a nice layout. The loft has a king bed with adequate space around it and storage. However, on hot days, it is stifling hot and the room badly needs a standing fan. We regret not asking for one. Therefore, some of us slept downstairs in the cooler queen room. The knives need upgrading, and there could be 1-2 more bigger/serving bowls. I was disappointed there weren't a few more staples left behind like nonstick spray, sandwich bags etc., only salt, pepper and coffee filters. We loved the combo lock - made it easier for all of us to not juggle a key. The location is great, plus it's near our friends who rent a house nearby."
Aug 07, 2017 - Trina L., Mountain View, CA

"Mountain High-A Wonderful Place to Stay
The condo was very quiet and very clean. All the amenities we needed were available. Enjoyed the walking path in the woods behind the condo. The lake was a 10 minute walk away. Loved the location. We were very happy here."
Jul 03, 2017 - , Marana, AZ

"Perfect location and place!
First time in the area we weren't sure where to stay but this was the best place to go! We were away from the busier cities but close enough to get to them in no time. A walk across the Main Street took you to a beautiful view of the lake where you can enjoy the scenery on a picnic bench.

"Carnelian Woods
Great Experience, house was VERY clean and TIDY on arrival. House felt secluded. Only downside was having to drive to the jacuzzi. However, thats out of the control of the owner. "
Apr 26, 2017 - , San Diego, CA

"Excellent place to stay
My family and I stayed here while we skied over a long weekend. We have stayed in several units here and this one was no exception - clean, comfortable, well-equipped kitchen, convenient to the ski areas - Squaw, Alpine, Northstar. We hope to stay here again. "
Feb 20, 2017 - Elizabeth C., Palo Alto, CA

"Great Stay for the Family
We had a great time in this condo. The decor was great, clean and comfortable. We had all we needed in the kitchen for a great stay. While there a major snow stormed dumped snow nonstop. The HOA cleared the parking and walkways daily, sometimes multiple times in a day. Couldn't ask for more."
Jan 24, 2017 - Dale T., Claremont, CA

It was absolutely wonderful!"
Nov 22, 2016 - Michael S., Pleasant Hill, CA

"Outstanding Stay, Wonderful Location, Outstanding Home like stay
Like I state in the title, the stay was almost like having a home away from home at the price range of this condo. When it comes to Vacation Properties, the variance is obviously incredibly wide, and always relative to price. But out of my 20+ years of vacationing, my stay here was definitely just about the best I could ever do at 150 or under per night. I happened to bump into those who work at the Condominium Complex (individual units are owned by different organizations or even permanent individual residents) and those who worked at Carnelian Woods were very polite, professional, and definitely the type of people who were aimed at providing a clean and quiet stay while also being more environmentally conscious. Basically, if you want a stay that feels as much as home in a condo, this appears to be a good place. But I only stayed a week during low traffic. So my experience is limited. But, I will definitely consider staying here again. "

"Carnelian Bay Condo Lake Tahoe
Wonderful experience and everything went well."
Oct 02, 2016 - , Medford, OR

"My Review
The place was nice but having the main bedroom as part of the loft gives you zero privacy around the rest of the unit (excluding the second bedroom). Also only having 1 full bath made getting ready in the morning kind of a pain having to wait your turn."
Aug 16, 2016 - , Van Meter, IA

"Wish it was my place
This is the third condo in this complex I have rented and this is the cleanest nicely done of the three. I will definitely try to rent this unit again.
The only thing needed is an extra shower."
Aug 12, 2016 - Susan A., Loomis, CA

"Great place to relax and enjoy a great vacation!!!!
The house was very clean and cozy and was perfect for a family of four. The kitchen was well equipped and there were plenty of games for the kids and for family fun time. The lake and all the restaurants were only a few minutes away by car or walking. We did enjoy our vacation in that house and would recoomend it to travelers."
Aug 07, 2016 - , Phoenix, AZ

"Perfect living space for two!
Spent the recent weekend here with my girlfriend. Area was convenient and only 3 miles away from Safeway. Also about a 20 minute drive away from Northstar resort. Living space was clean, spacious, and with a modern kitchen. We enjoyed our weekend very much. Only inconvenient thing was we had to go to their office to pick up a parking pass and amenity keys. It would have been better if those things were already in the house. The parking passes at least."
Mar 20, 2016 - Vincent Y., San Francisco, CA

"Mountain High
The rental experience at Mountain High was Excellent. The layout was very homely and well maintained.

We got in late and were given the capability to access the condo without seeing a front desk which was extremely beneficial for someone traveling from the East Coast.

I would most certainly recommend this property to anyone, to include friends and family.

While we were there, we went to the North Shore Beaches, stopped at all the Visual Lookout points for different vantages, we went to a small Gym in North Tahoe every morning, we rented (student and Military discount) from Tahoe Dave's whom were extremely helpful. We went to Northstar, the locally recommended ski slopes for the "Best Kept Secret". We then made our way around to Zephyr Cove and took a cruise on MS Dixie II into the Emerald Bay. From there, we went around to Vikingsholm and hiked down to check it out.

The restaurants we ate at were,

Best Pies - Truckee, Jakes on the Lake - Tahoe City, Christy Hill - Tahoe City, Austins - Incline City, Te's Rotisserie

Feb 29, 2016 - , Hayward, CA

"Clean and cozy
Was so very pleased with the cleanliness and the sweet touches like having the amenities (soaps, hand towels, etc.)displayed with care. Something needs to be done about the keyless door code, though. We got locked out twice, once because the code simply did not work for no reason (and, yes, admittedly, once because we lost the code--DON'T leave home without it!). This issue in no way detracted from an otherwise perfect stay. "
