A peaceful retreat just off Carnelian Bay, Carnelian Charm offers a feeling of total privacy within walking distance of Lake Tahoe. The home also sits within 20 minutes of the Northstar and Palisades Tahoe ski areas.

Designed to embody the rustic ambience of Lake Tahoe, the two-story home boasts vaulted, tongue-and-groove ceilings, hardwood floors, and an open-concept layout that maximizes natural light.

In the great room, a full-length sofa and twin leather club chairs frame a river-rock fireplace and large-screen SmartTV, inviting cozy evenings with family after a day of adventures. Custom log chairs surround a 6-seat dining table, with three stools at the breakfast bar adding room for larger groups.

A spacious, south-facing balcony lies just off the dining area, offering glimpses of Lake Tahoe through soaring pine trees. Soak in the private hot tub, relax on the shaded patio chairs, or fire up the gas grill.

Ideal for groups, this home comfortably sleeps up to 8 guests with 3 bedrooms, each with a large picture window, a SmartTV, and en-suite bathroom:
