Tewesi Manor Carnelian Bay

Tewesi Manor is a spectacular lakefront villa on the shores of Lake Tahoe, situated in a secluded setting near the village of Carnelian Bay. Completed in 2012, the villa was designed exquisitely to evoke the classic manors of Old Tahoe while providing extraordinary modern amenities for cooking, relaxation, and play. The estate enjoys 200 feet of lake frontage including a private pier and swim platform, along with ample outdoor living areas for relishing the open air. A four-bedroom main house and a detached guest cottage form an ideal vacation rental for large families or destination wedding guests. Enjoy enchanting days and evenings together on your shorefront estate under the Sierra Nevada sky. Plunge into the lake for a refreshing swim and bask in the sunlight on the pier. Fire up the barbeque in the afternoon and gather for open-air feasts around the table in the beautiful veranda. Enjoy a glass of wine at sunset and steep your body in the hot tub for a delicious soak under the stars. The main house features a cavernous great room with high, vaulted ceilings and ample windows gazing out on the Tahoe expanse. Sip cocktails by the fire as the kids plays ping-pong, shuffleboard, or pool, then join each other for a well-earned feasts in the dining room. The villa's kitchen is fully equipped to inspire the chefs among your party, and easily serves both the interior and alfresco tables. Three king bedrooms and one queen bedroom are located in the main house, all with ensuite bathrooms. The stunning master suite features a king bed with panoramic lake views through wide bay windows, along with a private balcony and ensuite bathroom with dual vanity, sit-in shower, and soaking tub.
