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.

We loved the ease of location. They should take tennis courts until they are playable. Property has notes through out that are more of demands than requests which matches the property managers style. Not very friendly. I booked first time then left on to before I could get another set of paperwork done after already committing with credit card, they cancelled my reservation and I had to start over when I returned. Lots of pages and I rushed thru. Got an invoice which included travel insurance like $200-$300. I emailed I didn't want it (I initialed something that said I did). They said if I resigned and resubmitted the patrol on 5 minutes they would remove it!? 5 minutes?? What? So luckily I was home and got it done. Upon arriving the place was disappointing. The living room Fournier old and needs cleaning. Not comfortable. The coffee table had glad over top which moves off and has sharp corners which you can't see until it hits you. The place is dark no matter how many lights you turn on. A note by front door tells you to remove your shoes. No way!! Carpeted stairs are worn and dirty. It's obvious no one takes it their shoes. Master bedroom down stairs super dark too. A"what for" tiny TV is on there but you can't even tell what's on the screen. MB Bathroom is dirty and outdated. No place to put your cosmetics etc so had to put on dresser in bedroom.

Plus-kitchen was week stocked with items to cook. Small deck had peek a view of lake. Close to Garwood. Hiked up above property.

Based on my experience with property manager, I thought it wise to wait for my full damage refund before reviewing.

We have stayed in many Carnelian condos over the past 10 years and this unit is one of the better quality ones. Bed linens and bedspreads were fresh and clean, laminate floors are always a plus. Still, attention to detail is missing -- bathroom cupboards are badly scratched up, as is dining room set, and carpeting shows wear and stain, especially on stairs. Kitchen supplies are just adequate so if you are planning on doing any specialty cooking, bring your own supplies. The view is partially blocked by trees, of course, but is still lovely. Smaller chairs on the tiny deck would be welcomed since the two that are supplied don't fit. These are small complaints; the overall experience is lovely and I would rent this condo again.

It was great. Clean, comfortable, relaxing little deck. The filtered view of the lake was so peaceful.

Stayed in the house with one other family for a softball tournament in Tahoe. The place worked very well. Great location, plenty of room, and clean.

We had a great time with our kids and their friends at this wonderfully appointed, laid out, and stocked home. Great location close to everything with awesome pool, spa, bocce, and hiking. Cannot wait to go back.

We had a nice time at the townhouse. It was centrally located to the ski areas that we went to. Quiet setting off the main highway. Near the restaurant Gar Woods Grill and Pier that has the best food.

No real tennis courts, not an Olympic pool and not a swimming beach. You should advise that 5 tennis courts are at regional park 4 + miles away

Everything was as described, everything you need for a good time. After first arriving there were a couple minor things about the place, issue with a chair and the screen door, that I alerted management about as I didn't want there to be an issue with my deposit. They responded promptly and offered to send someone to address the issues. They were minor issues and it wasn't necessary, but I greatly appreciated the quick response. Would stay again.

Trent was prompt to our needs. It was a very comfortable stay. My kids wanted to come back to the same condo. They had good memory here.

There was no kleenex or napkins. Several light bulbs burned out. The condo is very dark. Needs higher intensity light bulbs? The rental co sent us the info on the place we are staying at the end of Sept. Not the one for this time!

The rental was clean and as advertised. Information from the management was clear and they were easy to deal with. I would recommend this rental to friends and we'll probably be going back again.

Great amenities, and location; and a nice view of the lake from the balcony.

This unit was disappointing. The cable didn't work, the shades didn't work, the bed was uncomfortable, the heat was loud and annoying.

Nicely done aesthetically, but very dark due to trees in front of the balconies. Lamps perfect for entertaining, but not bright enough to find a spot to sit and read. Living and dining furniture attractive but uncomfortable. Pots and pans need updating.

Had a wonderful vacation at Carnelian Woods #132. Property is exactly as described and check in and out couldn't have been easier. Clubhouse and pool were even better than the pictures due to recent renovations. Location was very central to the places we wanted to visit on the North end of Lake Tahoe. We viewed Labor Day Fireworks right across the street at the beach. Views of the lake off the back deck were a nice extra. Overall fantastic experience.

Very nice unit, comfortable, clean and attractive. Located near Northstar, Truckee, Tahoe City. We had a great time!

We had a wonderful time staying at Silver Pine. The condo is very well maintained and comfortable. We had views of the lake from two private porches. My kids enjoyed the loft and the wifi as well as the rec center. We would definitely recommend staying here!



on 08/30/2017

We loved our stay here with our 2 kids. The property was clean and well-maintained, just as described. It was very well-equipped and well-furnished. There were games and books for our kids and a complete kitchen for full meals. Our kids loved coming back and relaxing here. Carnelian Bay is a great location, close to everything, and yet quiet and peaceful. I can't recommend this home enough. We'd definitely want to come back and stay here on our next visit to Tahoe.



on 07/18/2016

Wonderful cabin in Carnelian Bay, a great getaway after a day on the lake. We really enjoyed the space - it was plenty of room for 7 people. We loved the kitchen and fridge, it allowed us to make meals on our own and enjoy our time in the house.



on 02/17/2016

The booking process was tidious and long. Id much prefer to book through AirBnB with one step rather than back and forth emails/faxes?! Who has a fax machine anymore??
Also, rec room/hot tub closes way too early at 830pm!

Finally, we drove through a storm to get to our rental, only to find the access road to Carnelian Woods was blockaded with 4ft of snow from plows and the road to all the rentals was not even plowed?!! Offices were closed and we had no way to get to our rental!!



on 01/25/2016

We took the kids up to Tahoe for some snow play. And this place worked out great. Good location for getting around and quiet. The managers were good to work with.
The internet was really slow but lucky I didn't need to do much work or it would have been more of a problem. That would be my only compliant.



on 01/08/2015

I went with a group of friends and from beginning to end, our experience at CW132 was great. Booking, arrival/departure instructions and payment were quick and easy. Property is exactly as described and check in and out couldn't have been easier. I appreciated First Accommodations quick responses to may emails.

Great place, had wonderful time



on 08/12/2014

Great location, quiet, and good view of the lake. The pool is surrounded by trees. We are a family of 4, and definitely would love to visit again.



on 07/30/2014

From beginning to end, our experience at CW132 was seamless. Booking, arrival/departure instructions and payment were quick and easy. I appreciated First Accommodations prompt responses to may emails.

We area a family of five. This was our first time taking our kids, ages 10, 12 and 14 to Tahoe. The first thing that I noticed was how incredibly clean and updated the unit was. The condo itself, doesn't appear to be incredibly new, but there is obvious pride in ownership in that fixtures, appliances, paint, carpet, etc are nicely kept. The unit was spacious enough for all of us.

The unit is very quiet and relaxing. The Carnelian Bay area is very laid back, low key, so it was perfect for us. We loved our stay and look forward to staying there again.

Apparently the owner spotted a mouse and set traps. She informed property management, but no one checked the traps before my arrival. I endured the smell of a dead mouse next to my bed for six nights! The trap was under the night stand, not in sight until the stand was moved. Prior to the mouse removal, I spotted a snake next near the night stand and my partner removed it. Not very appealing! The couch was uncomfortable; terrible for your back. There was only one comfortable chair in the living room in which to sit and watch TV. Chairs around the table were very tall and hard to get in and out of. Hardly any room to set toilet items in bathrooms. Light low in bathrooms making it difficult to see for makeup and shaving. Won't stay there again!


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.
