Property Description

Secret Serenity Chateau is a truly special home. You will not find another vacation rental that matches the history, location, and unique style that this property offers. It's all in the details here; Tiles from Liberace and Doris Day's past homes adorn the bathroom, and gorgeous historic light fixtures bring an elegant feel to this Tahoe Chateau.  This 4 bedroom, 2 ½ bath home sits on top of a hill at the end of the street, providing privacy, solitude, and gorgeous views! Guest's first stop when arriving at this home in the summer may as well be the massive wrap-around deck that provides the perfect setting for dining al fresco, sunbathing or BBQing under the stars with the whole family. Upon entering the house, the family and friends will be stunned by the beauty of the updated kitchen and great room sitting under vaulted ceilings. This area boasts a fireplace to cuddle up to on a cold winter's night. In the morning, hover around the nook in the kitchen while your breakfast is being made, and have your coffee while listening to the seasonal babbling creek that flows under the home. 

Beyond that space lies the first bedroom and common bathroom and into the library- that's right a vacation rental WITH A LIBRARY! Renters from the city just love that the main floor bedroom hovers rights above the babbling creek which makes for the most peaceful setting when you're trying to unwind. The bathroom- which we just can't tell you enough about-  is not your normal bathroom, either. The walls are covered with colorful and striking tiles from celebrities all around the world, as the owner had been a renowned contractor --each tile is from a different celebrity project. We gave you a hint about a few of the above, but you'll have to enjoy a stay here to really feel the enormity of the history here. There is a plaque that reveals where each tile was originally from, so spend some alone time, really digging in!

The primary bedroom, through the library, offers an en-suite bathroom with an elegant fireplace to separate the bathtub and the bed so you can relax either location and enjoy the peace and comfort a good fire provides. Above the library is a sizable loft, with three futons, and a table area perfect for those family game nights! This is more than a home; it is an experience that you and your family do not want to miss out on. Don't sleep on this one!

As for its location, Staying in the Cedar Flat neighborhood in Carnelian Bay puts you in the center of everything Lake Tahoe has to offer. Smack dab between Tahoe City and Kings Beach, offers the best of both worlds to travelers. Guests of Secret Serenity enjoy that the comforts of home lie just minutes from boating on the lake, or skiing at one of the many nearby ski resorts. Numerous hiking and biking trails are situated out the back of this neighborhood and cater to various levels of outdoorsmanship. And when it's time for a more casual adventure, the endless boutiques, and restaurants in the quaint North Lake Tahoe communities of Tahoe City, Tahoe Vista, Kings Beach, or the West Shore within just a short drive.
