Carnelian Woods is located in Placer County on the North Shore of beautiful Lake Tahoe. It is nestled amongst the trees and overlooks Carnelian Bay which is known for its semi-precious red and yellow stones peppering the shoreline. Homeowners consider their home in Carnelian Woods a little "slice of heaven" and enjoy the solitude, serenity and beauty of the surrounding property. The complex backs up to the Tahoe National Forest where homeowners and guests can enjoy miles of hiking and cross country skiing. Wildlife is abundant and live in harmony with the homeowners. Natural trails meander throughout the well maintained forest and rock outcroppings on the property. Homeowners and guests have access to all amenities including the clubhouse and Bocce Court, tennis courts, an Olympic size swimming pool, and even a par course. The crystal clear blue water of Lake Tahoe is just a short trip by foot or car.
