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.

Quick trip to Tahoe for a race. Accommodations were as advertised and good value.

It is a very nice condo in a quiet neighborhood. It easily accommodates two families. Nice bathroom and kitchen. Kids had a lot of fun at the pool and rec center. The cleaning crew could have done a better job in cleaning the bathrooms, comforters, and carpet. Wi-Fi worked pretty well in the whole house.

Second time renting in "Carnelian Woods" cabins. All was perfect except too early checkout (10am).

This is the third year we've stayed at Carnelian Woods. The location is fabulous- walking distance to Lake, Garwoods, Mini Golf. The unit was perfect for 2 couples and First Accommodation is always extremely friendly and helpful.

The most disappointing part is the recreation center is not what we expected it to be. Pool table does not work right the person who was on the duty had to use the pool Stick to bang the part to be able to get the ball out. game room was all dark no games were on at all. The tv wasn't working properly. Was not happy with the Recreation area. But the house we stayed in was great.. The walking path is amazing. The moment we came in the house was clean and warm like a vacation home. I am pleased with the Location we stayed except the recreation center wish they keep it up and make it more entertaining for the customers with children.
Quiet, forest view, safe, comfortable and clean. exactly as pictured. Dozen or so step stairs, two bedrooms and bathroom on main floor, living, dining, kitchen and bathroom on second floor. We did not use the loft room. Basic cable TV. Wifi great. We did not use the DVD player. Ceiling fan in living room area was sufficient. Kitchen basic electric, well supplied for use including towel and pot holders, dish and dishwasher soap. We did not use the fireplace nor the BBQ. Cons: bed linens seemed old but clean.(bath towels new-ish) Shower slippery /no hand hold. and some of the furniture was well worn but it did not matter. Great location short car ride to Kings Beach and Tahoe City. Easy walk to mini golf,some restaurants, and pebbly beach. We did not use the pool/hot tub. rec room at the Carnelian Woods main office because we were too busy enjoying the lake. Property manager very responsive. We would like to return again. This was a great retreat!
The refrigerator defrost system caused water to run down on the top food shelf daily, and left a sizable puddle on the floor two of four days. The screen door would not close completely, and banged loudly every time it tried. Several lamps had burned out bulbs or did not work. We left a note with those concerns for the owner via the Recreation Center manager.
Over-all, we were satisfied with the rental although it was smaller than the photos indicated, and some furniture and carpeting showed signs of aging.
The condo was a little dated but clean and in a good location. The staff at the lodge is a little rough and not very helpful.
Lots of fun in the snow. The property management team was on top of the snow plowing/blowing. Beautiful setting. Enjoyed the 3 levels of the condo. We'll be back.
We like Carnelian Woods quite a bit, but this condo needs updating. The picture does not show how dirty and run down it is. The carpet is really dirty and the entire condo feels dirty. the surfaces of the kitchen, the dining table and bathroom did not feel clean when we checked in.
We stayed in this apt for a week during summer time. The apt is as shown in the pics, old style but functional. It's not a 3bd but a 2bd plus a loft room, just plan accordingly in case you need 3real bd.
The stove is old and the electric pads don't stay in their space anymore, all the non-stick pans are scratched but there is a good amount of other pots. There is no hairdryer!! The windows shades give you privacy but they don't keep sunlight out of the room in the morning, so the master bedroom and loft-room have plenty of sunlight at 6am.
For 2 days we had workers on our balconies from 8am through the day, when i called the property manager the second day he apologized and told them to finish their work after we were gone. It was definitely not nice to have breakfast with them working outside looking at us!
Overall it was a nice vacation, the apt is conveniently located, most of the best north shore beaches are less than 30min driving away, safeway is 5 min away.
Great place- a little cramped for 5 people in the communal space but plenty of sleeping space. Only complaint was the railing on the upstairs loft- very unsafe! We visited with my toddler and the railing not only had huge gaps between the bars that he could easily fit through but it was VERY wobbly and felt unsafe to lean on.
The location was perfect. We went skiing in Alpine Meadows and Lake Tahoe. We were only in contact with the management company before the stay. It worked well with the lock box. We went to get our parking permit, but no-one was there.
The property is old, and old inside. It needs an upgrade. The A/C was noisy and very old. The kitchen was equipped with old utensils, some of them broken. The dining chairs were in bad condition.
The condo was comfortable and clean. The area quiet. Enjoyed the beautiful pool and playground. The hot tub was great the only problem was the hours the hot tub was open.The rec room was well kept,nice pool table. The beach was nice but a little rocky. The old post office was a great place to eat although very busy.
A group of 6 of us stayed in this condo in February 2015 to ski at Squaw Valley. The condo was a good size for 6 people. There were two bedroom downstairs, which share a bathroom, the main living area upstairs with a bathroom, and a loft with 3 twin beds. The living area and kitchen were a bit tight, but worked out fine. The kitchen was well-stocked with everything we needed to cook. The beds were moderately comfortable, but not the best I've slept in. The condo was a bit far from Squaw (about 20 minutes driving), but was well located otherwise (near restaurants, supermarket, etc.). Within the condo complex, this unit was a bit far from the recreation center and hot tub though. Additionally, the WiFi was not functional while we were there; they provided us with an alternate network (presumably a neighbor's signal), but the signal wasn't strong enough to reliable connect. Also, cell service was a bit spotty in the unit, so having WiFi would have been nice. The condo also comes with only 2 parking passes, so we had to street park the 3rd car. The place was empty while we were there, and I would have expected them to allow us to park the 3rd car since the parking lot was empty all weekend. Overall, I'd say that there are definitely better options for Tahoe (and Squaw in particular), but for the price, this was a good value.
The place looks much nicer than it is. There is mildew odor in the place; carpets are worn out and furniture rickety. We were charged for broken items when that did not occur. Furniture was already in poor condition when we came.
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.
