Carnelian Woods backs up to the Tahoe National Forest where guests can enjoy miles of hiking and cross-country skiing. Wildlife is abundant and live in harmony with the homeowners. Natural trails meander throughout the well maintained forest and rock outcroppings on the property. Homeowners and guests have access to all amenities, including the clubhouse and Bocce Court, tennis courts, an olympic size seasonal swimming pool, year-round hot tubs, a clubhouse pool table and an arcade, and even a par course.

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

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.

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.

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.

It was absolutely wonderful!

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.

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.

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.

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
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.
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.
We enjoyed our stay. The condo is as pictured and had everything we needed. I would stay at this property again.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
Wonderful experience and everything went well.
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.
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.
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.
Carnelian Bay's North Lake Tahoe location makes for a great, quiet getway. Close to the casinos of North Lake Tahoe, public beaches, paddleboarding, kayaking, and more, this location has it all no matter what the season. Family-friendly skiing and snowboarding is close by at Northstar Ski Resort. But you're also right on the lake in Carnelian Bay. Rent kayaks or canoes, or a boat, and hit the lake. Or just sit at the beach and sunbathe or read a book. You can rent Jet skis too, or parasail or wind surf - fishing is also very popular as well. You can pay for a tour or just rent some gear and a boat and hit the lake. Magic Carpet Golf offers some great mini golf and Commons Beach is probably the most popular beach in the area, offering a beautiful view and great swimming conditions.
