Perfect venue to celebrate 50th Wedding Anniversary
Perfect venue to celebrate 50th Wedding Anniversary
The Swedish Chalet was just as advertised... making for a wonderful setting to celebrate a very special occasion with our family. There was plenty of space for all. The kids loved the loft and bunk beds down stairs, while the adults enjoyed the privacy of the many bedrooms. They also loved the variety of toys they discovered in the cabinets. We enjoyed relaxing on the large deck and using the BBQ. The kitchen was well-stocked with everything we needed. The owners were super helpful in resolving our internet connectivity issues when we first arrived. The house was clean and well-maintained. The clubhouse amenities were great, we got much use out of the community pool, tennis courts and yes, caught some crayfish from the beach pier. We would definitely stay here again and recommend this property our friends.

Wonderful TimeGuest comment entered by owner
We all had a wonderful time. The rooms were perfect for our group of 13. One couple stayed on each floor, the 4 girls stayed in the bunk room and the 3 boys stayed on the loft and extra room upstairs. The big dining table and the bar provided comfortable seating for meals. The table also was the setting for game nights and lots of laughs and fun memories. We cooked dinner at the house for 4 or the 6 nights and used the grill.We spent 2 days at the Dollar Point Beach - the kids had a blast catching crawfish with the house equipment.This is our third time renting a VRBO home and the Swedish Chalet provided another good experience! Thanks again for everything, Birgitta!

Wonderful vacationGuest comment entered by owner
Birgitta, The week was wonderful and we really enjoyed your home. The kitchen was very well outfitted and we were able to cook very easily for our group. We loved the deck and the wonderful view, especially first thing in the morning. The BBQ on the deck was great and we cooked several meals on it. The house was very comfortable and spacious for our group and we enjoyed the big table for dining together and playing games in the evening. Thank you for letting us rent your home. We were very comfortable there and the property and location were very nice. We especially loved using the pool and having access to the private beach. The Fourth of July activities are fireworks were a big hit too. Sincerely, Kathy

We stayed at Birgitta's lovely Swedish chalet as part of a 50th birthday celebration for my brother. There were 13 of us (3 couples with 7 children total - 4 boys and 3 girls - ranging in age from 10 - 30), and we fit perfectly. The home is so cozy, yet it's deceptively large. We had 14 people at dinner on July 4th, and we fit in the dining room with room to spare. The house is well-equipped with everything you'd need, from a well-stocked kitchen to puzzles, board games and movies, and just about everything in between. We especially loved the dishwasher and the trash compacter! The steam shower was a big hit -- I can only imagine how awesome it must be after a day in the snow! Downstairs, there is a large storage area with inner tubes, rafts (and a pump), paddles, beach chairs, folding chairs, etc. The main deck has lovely lake views and a large gas grill, and it's the perfect spot to enjoy your morning coffee or an afternoon nap -- so peaceful! The Dollar Point neighborhood is awesome -- the pool area is gorgeous. In addition to the big, beautiful pool with plenty of chairs/chaises, there are 3 tennis courts, bocce ball, shuffleboard, and charcoal grills/picnic tables. It's surrounded by lawn and trees for lots of shade if you've had enough sun, and the building with the restrooms and office looks brand new. In addition, the private beach and pier are also fantastic (and there are more tennis courts there), and the people that work there are extremely polite and helpful. The Dollar Point location is close to Tahoe City, Tahoe Vista and Kings Beach, for shopping, restaurants, jet-skiing, paddle boarding, kayaking, rafting down the Truckee, golf, etc. It was an absolute pleasure working with Birgitta -- she patiently answered all of my questions and generously helped with a concern that we had. She is also a wealth of knowledge for local information, including where the best places are to watch fireworks on the 4th! The house was extremely clean when we arrived, and we enjoyed every minute of our stay there. We were sad to leave, and are hopeful that we can all make a return trip again very soon. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us!

Perfect for large group
Perfect for large group
We live in Reno and like to take quick get aways to Tahoe. Stayed a week starting with Father's day weekend. Well located 1/2 way between pool/tennis and the private beach area. Had the kids and grandkids and everyone had a bed. Three full baths makes the number of beds work. This was the best stocked kitchen including condiments etc that we have ever experienced. This was a warm, truly family house and not just a market rental.

Hello Birgitta, We had a wonderful time at your lovely cozy chalet. We definitely enjoyed your fully stocked kitchen, the big warm fireplace and the long dining table was just perfect for all of us. t was smowing a little bit when we got there, so the kids enjoyed watching the snowflakes coming down through your big glass windows. Although we were not able to go swimming (too cold). We did still had a fun time walking on the nice clean private beach and pier. The location of the house is just perfect. It's close to everything.....Safeway, Savemart, Restaurants, Video rentals etc. Overall, we were all happy that we stayed at your vacation home and we will definitely be back

We loved our week at your beautiful home. Dollar Point proved to be perfect and with the pool a short walk in one direction, and the private beach three blocks in the other, the house is ideally located. The view from the deck is magnificent, with morning sun over the lake with the snow topped mountains in the background. Lots of room and comfortable beds. Well stocked kitchen (we celebrated a birthday while there and found the cake pans for the requested Red Velvet Cake)and games and books for our youngster. It was very hard to leave!

Tahoe vacationGuest comment entered by owner
Birgitta, We had a wonderful stay at your beautiful home. Everyone had a great time and enjoyed the beach and the pool and the many water sports that Tahoe has to offer. It was a great family reunion in a wonderful location. We really enjoyed the size and layout of your house and all the special decorations that made it unique and homey. Thanks for sharing your house with us. Odile's mother writes: Dear Birgitta, We enjoyed your home very much and we had a wonderful family reunion . We enjoyed especially your well stocked kitchen and the nice plates. Thanks again for a memorable vacation.

Ski Lease January through April , 2011 Birgitta - After a long and glorious season, our team has tearfully said goodbye to the beloved 57 Tahoma Ave. We all very much enjoyed our time at your home and treated it like our own. We would very much like to consider renting the place again next year. Thank you very much for sharing your home with us. We are all a bit sad that the season has come to an end, but we anxiously look forward to next year.

Birgitta Thank you so much! It has been a most amazing Thanksgiving weekend. The house is a beauty and the whole thing felt like a Christmas carol came alive with all the snow around. We followed your instructions - windows are shut as well as the deck door. The thermostat is on low 50 and the dog's karaoke machine is on. Our dog had enjoyed her karaoke moment - as a farewell. One more time, thank you so much for all pleasures your house has delivered! Inna.

About the owner: Birgitta at beautiful Lake Tahoe
Why the Owner Chose Dollar Point:
We fell in love with beautiful Lake Tahoe when we came from Sweden and built the classic European chalet. Tahoe is the ultimate vacation spot with its majestic mountains and also beautiful beaches. We loved it from the start, and believe you will also. Our home has all the amenities and charm to make it a comfortable vacation. We aim to please and hope you will enjoy it as much as we do. The children and grandchildren have loved all their vacations and holidays there . Christmas at Dollar Point is a tradition for many years and very special in our hearts.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Dollar Point is the best place for fun and convenience. The Olympic pool and the summer programs is fantastic. The Friday BBQ and games for the kids are very special. Also, shuffleboard and bocce! The tennis courts and clinics are very popular. The private beach has volley ball games, umbrellas and is a kid's paradise. The long pier is a favorite for crayfishing, sunbathing, boating and just hanging out.
