Carnelian Bay & Agate Bay
In 1860, Carnelian Bay was founded as “Cornelian Bay,” after Chalcedony (semi-precious stone) was found on its shoreline. You may not find Chalcedony today, but in its place, you will find some well-kept recreation facilities. Throughout the region, you can spend endless quality time strolling its soft pebble shoreline, paddle boarding and kayaking the clear blue waters of Lake Tahoe, or hiking and biking through its varied neighborhoods.
Boating enthusiasts in particular appreciate all the first-class services that are offered through Sierra Boat Company which has called Carnelian Bay home for generations. This full-service marina specializes in the restoration of classic wooden boats and offers slip rentals, boat sales, rentals, fishing charters, and more.
Although the Carnelian Bay community is small, it offers a wide selection of real estate that varies from classic ski cabins to some of the region’s most luxurious lakefront estates.
The neighborhood of Cedar Flat was once a summer home tract with ‘Old World’ Tahoe style chalets and cabins set in the hills above the Lake Tahoe. Many have been completely remodeled yet have retained their own expansive and breathtaking views of Lake Tahoe. Whether you choose to invest in an expansive lakefront home or rest high in the trees of Cedar Flats, Carnelian Bay awaits your desire to call this north shore community “home sweet home”.
Nestled along the northwestern edge of Lake Tahoe is the quaint community of Agate Bay. The center of attention is without question the popular Agate Bay Sun Club. Its fee-based organization offers a variety of facilities that are only available to local property owners and includes access to a private pier, swimming pool, volleyball court and tennis courts.
Real estate options vary from classic old log cabins to some of the most magnificent vacation escapes wrapped with spectacular views of Lake Tahoe and the surrounding High Sierra.
