A truly exceptional lake view vacation home, Gray Bear Estate is designed to deliver the ultimate vacation experience.
The open concept living area sits upstairs, with the expansive Chef's kitchen at the heart of the home. Outfitted with an eight burner Wolf range, butcher block island, mahogany bar seating four, and formal dining area for eight, we expect many evenings to be spent enjoying a home cooked meal. Adjacent, a cozy seating area surrounds a rock wall with gas log fireplace, large wall mounted flat screen, and views of Lake Tahoe beyond. Escape to the downstairs copper topped bar with seating for four, air hockey table, flat screen TV, and gas fireplace.
Upstairs from the main living area, the spacious Primary bedroom feels like your own private sanctuary within the Estate. A King bed faces floor to ceiling windows revealing tree filtered lake views. A gas fireplace, flat screen television, and large walk-in closet make the space especially comfortable. The en suite bath includes a jetted tub, shower, separate water closet and designated make-up vanity.
A second King guest suite complete with a new flat screen TV and en suite bath is located on this floor as well.
The third and fourth Primary style suites are located on the home's lower level, both with King beds, fireplaces, televisions, and en suite bathrooms of their own. Also on this floor, the bunk room is perfect for the younger travelers, and has its own bathroom with tub. Looking for a quiet retreat to get some work done? A built in office nook sits off the kitchen.
And the fun doesn't end indoors! Off of the main living area, a built-in gas grill and bar serve as an "outdoor kitchen". During the summer months, take advantage of the picturesque view from the expansive deck, with patio dining and oversized lounge furniture. Follow the short steps down to the secluded public beach below. And year round, end your day with a relaxing soak in the hot tub, located on the lower level deck.

ABOUT THE AREA
Originally named for the semi-precious red and yellow stones peppering the shoreline, today Carnelian Bay is a favorite among dogs, kayakers, SUPers and sunset seekers. Located between Tahoe City and Kings Beach, this laid back lake side town is known for great paddle boarding, and “Wet Woodys” on the deck at Gar Woods Grill & Pier.
Patton Landing is Carnelian Bay’s three acre pebbly beach, home to Waterman’s Landing, a gourmet coffee house, and a full service café. The property offers a free, nonmotorized "car top" boat launch and stand-up paddleboard and kayak rentals are available so you can enjoy the lake without bringing your own watercraft.
In the winter, you are just 15 minutes from Northstar, where you’ll enjoy access to almost 100 trails and over 3,000 skiable acres, impeccable grooming, incredible tree skiing and enough variety to challenge every level of skier. Take advantage of world class terrain parks, cross country skiing, a youth Adventure Park, and a 9000 square foot ice rink surrounded by fire pits and a rink side bar. Palisades Tahoe (formally known as Squaw Valley/Alpine Meadows), and Homewood are all within a 25 minute drive.
