About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Lovely family home with four bedrooms, den, two and a half baths and unparalleled lake views. The house is beautifully landscaped with two large decks overlooking a green belt and the lake.

The kitchen is fully equipped with a sub zero refrigerator and two ovens. The kitchen, dining room and half bath are on street level. Downstairs there are four bedrooms, two baths, a den and laundry area. There are 2 kings, 1 queen futon and 1 double bed. The master bedroom has a large deck with a hot tub. There is access to the lawn area for the kids to play.

There is a safety gate at the top of the stairs upon request. All decks are child safe with gates. Other 'baby stuff' is available upon request.

The house is located a few blocks from the pool and tennis area. Wonderful mountain biking is available a short distance away. There are miles of trails that enter the Tahoe Cross Country Center. A paved bike path goes from the entrance to Dollar Point to Tahoe City and then continues for miles down West shore or follows along the Truckee River to Squaw Valley. There are additional tennis courts overlooking the Dollar Point beach and pier.The house is close to Alpine, Squaw as well as North Star. The X Country Nordic Center is less than 5 minutes away. Great for year round fun.

Dollar Point is a perfect spot for a family vacation year round. If you enjoy sitting on the deck, relaxing and enjoying the view or taking advantage of all the activities Lake Tahoe has to offer, this is the spot for you!

About The Owner

I am a retired school teacher, and I have lived in Tahoe for 35 years. I taught school and raised my family here. I have 2 Golden Retrievers and love to hike, bike and cross country ski. This is my permanent residence, so when I rent the house I travel, go camping in my motor home or spend time with family or friends.

Why The Owner chose Lake Forest

Tahoe is one of the most beautiful places in the world. I love living in Dollar Point because it is centrally located between the ski areas, close to town and very close to the Nordic Center. The mountain biking is wonderful just across the highway. Dollar Point has some of the best amenities in Tahoe with a beautiful pool as well as a private beach/pier. There are two tennis courts, one at the pool and the other is located at the beach.

What makes this house unique

I would say the unique benefit of my home is the panoramic view of the lake and the oversized deck. My house overlooks a green belt with no wires or houses obstructing the view. There is nothing like having breakfast or lunch out on the deck or relaxing with a good book. My neighborhood is very quiet and peaceful. Even on a crowded weekend you can be away from it all.

Absolutely beautiful view of the lake and a very nice home to spend a long weekend away

  • 4 of 5

there are very few homes that are dog friendly in the Tahoe area with such a wonderful view and wonderful amenities. The kitchen was fully stocked and remodeled, the outdoor decks were huge and had stunning views and the hot tub was an added bonus with the same beautiful view. We only used one bedroom but all the bathrooms were newly remodeled and very nice. We loved the huge wood-burning fireplace and the cabin is very cozy and comfortable. The extra sitting area/game room would be great for a larger group. We will return with the family for a summer getaway! Thank you Mary, a wonderful, relaxing time!

Great location in Dollar Point. Very nice home that is quite well-equipped. The deck and the view overlooking the lake is truly incredible. The owner is very responsive and accommodating if any issues needing resolution during the stay.

It was a great trip!

Perfect Tahoe Getaway

  • 5 of 5

A group of 8 colleagues stayed here and absolutely loved it. The sunrise views over Lake Tahoe were incredible. The kitchen had all the pots and pans and utensils we needed, and even had a fully stocked spice cabinet. The hot tub was exactly what we needed after long days of skiing. Thank you for letting us stay at your amazing house!

Such an Amazing Place!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house last minute and Mary Lynn was incredibly accommodating and got everything ready for us within 48 hours. The place is beautiful and very cozy; the pictures don't do it justice. The living room was spacious for our group of 7 and one dog, and there were enough beds to sleep 8 people comfortably. There were plenty of supplies in the kitchen and the hot tub was fantastic after a long day of skiing. As an added bonus, the view of the lake was absolutely stunning. We will hopefully be back!
