Boating is to Carnelian Bay what blue is to Lake Tahoe. In summer, it is life. The Sierra Boat Company, considered a premier US wooden boat builder, opened here in 1952. Boat fanatics from around the country trailer their classic woodies to the Concours d”Elegance wooden boat show each summer for a weekend of nostalgic Lake Tahoe cruising. Carnelian’s two state beaches belong to dogs, kayakers and sunset seekers and in winter, Carnelian Bay’s central location is within close range to over 10 ski resorts.
Today, a high percentage of permanent residents live in a mix of older and newer homes in this secluded area. In addition, there are a number of vacation rentals both in the woods and along the shore.
