“Cathy's home in Carnelian Bay is a spacious and welcoming cabin perched in a pine forest over Lake Tahoe. Tranquil and quiet, the house is at a short remove from route 28, the main thoroughfare that rings the lake, ensuring that vehicle traffic and the sound of water craft never intrude. North Lake Tahoe is decidedly less touristic and congested than the east and south shores, as density ramps up leading to the Nevada border. That being said, water recreation facilities, restaurants, and shops are more than sufficient in Tahoe City, a few moments from Cathy's place. Hiking trails, ranging from easy to challenging, ring the area: some of the most beautiful settings to be found in the US. Notably, Tahoe is at elevation; the lake is at 6,224 feet. The treks we took along the Pacific Crest went up to about 8,500 feet. Coming from our sea-level home, we felt the altitude...although the views are unquestionably worth it. The house features a top-level master suite with two sitting areas and en suite bath. Although the July days saw temperatures in the mid-eighties, the nights were pleasantly cool. Cathy provides fans that made for ideal sleeping conditions. The kitchen is well-equipped; the home's infrastructure (water, electric, data connectivity) performed flawlessly. The furnishings are uniformly comfortable, fostering casual relaxation. Cathy's communication and instructions were timely, clear, and concise. The chill vibe of Cathy's cabin envelops the visitor from arrival. The gift of this happy interlude endures...something everyone can use.”
Cathy's reviewsAs a host (6)
“You couldn't find a nicer family to swap with! Our trip was incredible. We are a family of 5 - mum, dad, and three young girls. Our hosts were very good with communication, they were flexible, accommodating, generous. The house is quite dated, especially the kitchen, but it is well stocked and functions well. The home had plenty of room for us to spread out and was very warm with comfortable beds. We were lucky enough to swap for two months (nearly), and it has created family memories that will last a lifetime. We are so very grateful for the amazing opportunity we had to see one of the most beautiful places on the planet!”
“Cathy is a wonderful host and Tahoe is a wonderful location. The home is near several beautiful hikes and just up the road from the lake. It is spacious and comfortable. Cathy, thank you for all of your assistance to help us have a fabulous trip!”
“We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Cathy and Larry's rustic cabin. The skiing was excellent but the roads were a bit challenging due to weather conditions. A great place for a family gathering in a beautiful location. Thanks for making our stay comfortable. Kind regards Ross Alison and family. ”
