Carnelian Woods is located in Placer County on the North Shore of beautiful Lake Tahoe. It is nestled amongst the trees and overlooks Carnelian Bay, which is known for its semi-precious red and yellow stones peppering the shoreline. Homeowners consider their home in Carnelian Woods a little "slice of heaven" and enjoy the solitude, serenity and beauty of the surrounding properties.
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. The crystal clear blue water of Lake Tahoe is just a short trip by foot or car.

The Condo had all the basics that you would expect (less A/C) and was a comfortable and cozy place for our family to gather, eat and rest from a full day of activities. The place is a little worn and needs a little refreshing. The beds were comfortable (we used them all) and the recliners comfortable. The pool and hot tub were an added blessing. All in all, it was not a bad option for us. We had an excellent vacation.

My family of 5 stayed at the Wilderness Retreat for a 4 day vacation during August. It was a short walk to the pebble beach where we could rent kayaks and paddleboards. Very kid and dog friendly beach, although next time we will bring water shoes for the rocks. We had a great time playing Bocce at the rec center. It was so much fun we played it on two different days. This condo was a great location since it was only minutes away from Tahoe City, Truckee, Northstar and Squaw Valley. We ventured out every day and were amazed at how quickly we could experience an entirely different area of Lake Tahoe. Our entire family had a great time and we all agreed that we will be coming back next year! I highly recommend the condo due to its location, amenities and ease of renting.

Great location and value. Enjoyed the amenities including the recreation center. Townhouse is well appointed. Maintenance was very responsive (there were some lights out). Only comment is it is a little darker than it appears, even with all the lights on. Still, great place. There are written instructions for everything, including TV, cable, etc... thank God!

Visited from MA. My partner and I flew in and met my two kids and their boyfriend and girlfriend. Plenty of room for all and two baths was needed. We had our privacy downstairs while the kids were upstairs. We have stayed in theses condos a few times and really like the location and what they offer for the price. Baths had been updated but kitchen is due.

Arrived at the property in the evening and settled in after the drive. General condition was good but quickly discovered that there was a rodent problem. We had multiple field mice running across the floor of living room. Called Management and they set traps the next day. They said they came in because the door must have been left open by previous occupants. Over 3 days, kept seeing more mice and trapping them. It appeared that they had a nest in the laundry and or couch. Daughter and wife were stressed and could not relax in the unit. Family refused to eat in the unit because of the mice. Management made no effort to either move us or compensate us for the bad experience. This was our second time at this complex and I felt that management did not really care. Stated that it was part of the Tahoe experience!
I would have expected the management to at least compensate us for the poor condition and non-relaxing environment incurred.

Pleasant (except for the (MICE) !!! and Trent had to come by and fix the TV before we were able to use it.
Exactly as described. Great spot.
Really enjoyed our stay here. The property was clean and the manager was great.
Place was very nice, really enjoyed myself. Would recommend and return.
The reservation process went smoothly. When we had minor car trouble driving to Tahoe and had to delay our arrival, First Accomodations was very helpful. The condo was exactly as advertised; it was very clean and everything worked as it should (which has not always been my experience with vacation rentals). The beds were comfortable with good quality linens. Kitchen was stocked with everything we needed to cook meals. The gas fireplace provided warmth when needed and there were fans to cool us down when it was too hot. The unit was well located, easy walking distance to beach, restaurants, and miniature golf.
I would recommend this unit to friends.
Our experience with this Carnelian Woods unit was simply unbearable! We discovered well into this 5 day stay that the unit was filled with mice! There is nothing quite like rodents to ruin a wonderful vacation; having them run across your head when you're trying to sleep no less. I only hope I can get my wife's scream out of my memory in the next couple of years. The property management team did their best to respond by setting traps; unfortunately, there weren't enough of them! My suggestion to them: this isn't the case of a guest leaving a door ajar in a forested environment; you have a serious mouse infestation problem--hire a better pest service and don't rent this unit until it's been cleared--do yourself a favor, if you think it's been cleared, spend the night at the unit and check it out for yourself; guests don't make good guinea pigs!
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.
