Dollar Point cabin description

The Bear Lodge is a beautiful, updated home with lake views located in the private Dollar Point development. Tastefully decorated with bear theme throughout, this wonderful 4 bedroom and 2 bath cabin was first remodeled in 2009, and again in the Fall of 2014. This home is one level--no stairs--and features an open floor plan that is perfect for families with young kids and/or elderly parents. The Bear Lodge has everything guests need for a comfortable and relaxing vacation.

Upon entering the great room, guests will immediately notice the soaring cathedral ceiling and the expansive rock wall that is the quintessential Tahoe cabin. Watch a football game or movie on the new Samsung 46' LED HDTV, or just sit and relax around the floor-to-ceiling gas fireplace, perfect for those chilly winter nights. Right outside the great room, enjoy lake views on the large, wrap-around deck with a teak picnic table and 2 teak chaise lounge chairs.

All bedrooms are equipped with down comforters for the winter and lighter, quilt blankets for the summer. The master bedrooms has a queen size bed with attached bathroom. Second bedroom, also with a queen size bed, is across the hall from the third bedroom, which has 2 sets of bunk beds, ideal setup for families with young children. The fourth bedroom is currently being used as the TV room/game room, and has a double bed sleeper sofa.

The kitchen has high-end stainless steel appliances and custom cabinets with granite counter tops and is fully equipped with pots, pans, plates, cups, glasses, and silverware – perfect for entertaining at the large dining table with family & friends. The laundry room, right off the kitchen, has new washer and dryer. Two bathrooms have tiled floors, custom cabinets, and nice fixtures. The cabin is equipped with WIFI for those who are able to resist the beautiful surroundings outside.

The backyard has teak patio set with a chimineas for those chilly nights. Soak your troubles away in the bubbling hot tub overlooking the lake. Side yard is slightly sloped and is perfect for building a toboggan run in the winter time. My kids have spent countless hours sliding down the toboggan run. Shovel and sleds are available in the garage.

The house is within walking distance to the clubhouse (pool, tennis, bocce court, table tennis, internet access, etc.) and the Dollar Point private beach where families can enjoy crawdad fishing and other water activities. Great central location; 2 miles from Tahoe City's restaurants and shopping. For more information on Dollar Point, see: http://dollarpoint.org//index.php.

          Car: Recommended

          Our cabin is located in the beautiful Dollar Point community and is within walking distance (.3 miles) to the clubhouse where it is the hubbub of activities in the summer. Families can enjoy a lap pool with diving board, tennis courts, bocce court, shuffleboard, table tennis, internet access, etc. Pack a picnic lunch and enjoy the large pool deck area with abundant patio furniture, or just lounge and soak up the sun on the chaise lounge. There are lifeguards on duty, swim/tennis instructors for private and group lessons, and babysitters lists available at the pool.

          The cabin is about .5 miles away from the Dollar Point private beach where families can enjoy crawdad fishing, BBQ, beach volleyball, and water activities. My kids have spent countless hours crawdad fishing on the pier (with some strings, 1 inch drain washers, and some bacon), building sand castles and collecting shells on the beach, and swimming in the lake.

          There are many activities outside of Dollar Point. Summer activities include:

          • Explore hundreds of bike paths, one of which is right outside Dollar Point.

          • Go hiking on trails all around Tahoe and discover the amazing views of the lake and surrounding mountains. I keep a trail map in the kitchen drawer for your use.

          • Go River rafting down Truckee River 3 miles away.

          • Visit Treetop Adventure Park, voted #1 Tahoe Activity, for a variety of courses, from kids' zip lining to thrilling adventure ropes courses, all just 4 miles away.

          • 19 hole golf course 2.5 miles away in Tahoe City and mini golf 3 miles away in Carnelian Bay.

          • Lake fishing companies operate out of Tahoe City if you don’t have your own boat.

          • Horseback riding at Alpine Meadow Stable 8 miles away.

          • Lunch at Squaw Valley 10 miles away then go shopping in Truckee's quaint downtown 17 miles away.

          • Casinos in Nevada are 9 miles away.

          Winter activities include Snowboarding, Skiing, Cross Country Skiing, Ice Skating, Sledding and snow tubing at nearby ski resorts including Squaw Valley Lodge (10 miles), Alpine Meadows Ski Resort (8 miles), Northstar-at-Tahoe Resort (14 miles) , Homewood (9 miles), Diamond Peak (14 miles), Tahoe Cross Country Ski Area in Tahoe City.

           

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2007

          Why the Owner Chose Dollar Point:
          Bear Lodge was constructed in the mid 1960’s for a Stanford Professor and his family. The original home has been very well maintained over the years, and is currently owned by a loving family with strong ties to the University. The property continues to function as a restful family retreat from the hustle and bustle of Silicon Valley. In 2009, the owners remodeled the cabin's kitchen and baths, as well as updated its furnishings, transforming the cabin into a comfortable, contemporary living space. The kitchen features the latest in high tech appliances for your cooking enjoyment. All of the cabinets are maple, and were hand built and installed by a master cabinet maker from the Napa Valley who specializes in building cabinets for the wineries. In the Fall of 2014, the owners updated the cabin with the addition of new hardwood floors in the great room, LED HDTVs in both the great room and TV room, and a gorgeous and rustic chandelier in the dining area. All beds are equipped with quilts for the summer months and down comforters for the winter months. You should be able to find extra sheets, pillows, towels, and supplies in the hallway closet. Our kids, now 16 and 18, have had many happy winters and summers at this house. Since the house is centrally located in the Dollar Point development, they spent many of their lazy summer days at the beach and at the clubhouse, both of which are just a short walking distance away. In the winter time, they spent hours building a toboggan run at the side of the house (hot tub side of the house), some runs more than 100 ft in length, then spend many more hours going down it. The house has been a happy and fun retreat for us, and we hope it will be for you too. We have brought up some of our favorite games to the house (located in the TV room closet) and you are very welcome to use them. Please do take care of the games and return the contents to the box when you are done with them

          The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
          Bear Lodge is within .5 miles to Dollar Point private beach, swimming pool and tennis courts for lots of summer fun activities. In the winter, it is conveniently located to Alpine, Squaw, and North Star Ski Resorts. Easy access to downtown Tahoe City restaurants, bars, and shops.
