The location is great and the amenities, namely accessibility, proximity to the lake with private beach, the lap- swimming pool, and great picnic area by the pool are major pluses. The owner is very responsive, kind, and accommodating.

                                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                                      Thank you very much for your complimentary review and especially the words about the hostess!

                                                                      I will take care about the few things you mentioned on the phone. The Olympic pool has been changed to "large" pool.

                                                                      Please come back and visit us again as you were a very nice tenant.

                                                                      Best Regards,

                                                                      Stuart E.

                                                                      We just returned from a special and memorable week at the Swedish Chalet in Dollar Point, Lake Tahoe. We cannot say enough about this property with its huge deck, lake views and BBQ - perfect for entertaining. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need for big dinner parties and opens into a gorgeous family room with a big dining table, bar, bar stools, leather couches and amazing huge fire place. The bedrooms are decorated in mountain decor and there is plenty of room for everyone.

                                                                      We celebrated my father's 85th bday and family reunion. The amenities at this Tahoe cabin are too many mention; private beach, dock, beach volleyball, beach chairs and umbrellas. There are tennis courts at the beach and up at the private pool which also has all kinds of games and activities for guests. We used it all!

                                                                      The best part of our special trip was socializing with our family at the cabin, great dinners and music on the deck overlooking beautiful Lake Tahoe.

                                                                      We will be back!

                                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                                      Thank you for you very nice review. Glad you and your friends enjoyed your vacation in our Swedish Chalet. Yes, we are very proud of our well planned and stocked kitchen.

                                                                      You are very welcome back! Enjoy the rest of the summer.

                                                                      I'm off to my homeland, Sweden, tomorrow but will also plan to spend time at Tahoe.

                                                                      Best Regards, Birgitta

                                                                      Wonderful Family Vacation Home

                                                                      Debbie C.Sonora, CA

                                                                      Our family of nine (4 couples and a two year old) thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this very comfortable home. The homeowner Birgitta was very easy to work with, addressing questions and concerns in a very timely manner. Each couple had their own room with a king or queen bed and the two year old had the downstairs bunk room which was quiet and perfect for naps and bedtime. The well stocked kitchen provided all our cooking needs, including spices, condiments, etc.

                                                                      This is definitely one of the older homes in Dollar Point, showing some wear and tear both inside and out. That did not bother us though as the chalet is so homey, comfortable, and charming with its Swedish themed decor. We enjoyed morning coffee as well as BBQ's on the deck with beautiful views of the lake. The HOA recreation facilities are outstanding. The lap swimmers in our family enjoyed uncrowded morning workouts at the pool and in the afternoons the whole family played in the pool and then headed to the bocce ball court. Those who brought bikes took advantage of the nearby bike paths and mountain bike trails. The private beach was a great place for launching our kayaks and swimming. The cabin is only a five minute drive from Tahoe City so shopping, restaurants, marina etc. were easily accessible. We would not hesitate to stay at the Swedish Chalet again!

                                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                                      Thank you for your nice review. I am so glad you had a wonderful vacation and enjoyed staying in our Home. We try our utmost to make it a comfortable stay.

                                                                      It is one of the first Dollar Point homes but we are constantly updating and refreshing with new appliances, carpeting, decorating and paint. An ongoing plan through the years! As you said. the ambiance and charm makes up for the age.

                                                                      You are welcome to return and once again enjoy the beauty of Lake Tahoe.

                                                                      Best to you and the family.


                                                                      Great place and location for big families and best owner ever!

                                                                      Colleen L.

                                                                      My family was looking for a place to stay for our first trip to Tahoe as one big family and we hit the jackpot when we found this Swedish Chalet. This place has 5 rooms and a loft! We have 4 couples; all with kids. Everyone had a room and put all the kids in one too! Woohoo! The best part of the house was how responsive the owner was. The driveway was icy and we kept slipping; we let the owner know and she had someone come melt the ice and placed salt down in less than an hour! Super responsive and made sure we were comfortable and taken care of. Thank you so much Birgitta!

                                                                      Owner's Response:


                                                                      Thank you so much for those kind words.

                                                                      I do try my hardest to always be of service to my tenants and solve any problems that arise as fast as possible. This makes for a harmonious relationship between host and guests and may hopefully result in a return to our Swedish Chalet. Keeping in touch and keeping communications open is the key, I think, of a satisfactory vacation.

                                                                      You and your family are so welcome to come back to beatiful Lake Tahoe and the Swedish Chalet specifically.

                                                                      We really enjoyed our recent stay in Birgitta's home. The beds were comfortable, the living space very warm and relaxing, and the porches and view of the lake are wonderful. The house also has a wealth of cooking supplies that were very much appreciated. There are a couple areas the house is starting to show its age. As well, the dishes, silver wear, and plates were in need of a clean when we arrived. Birgitta was very easy to work with and she was very helpful with providing a high chair and a portable crib...that made traveling with our 9 month old a little easier. All in all we really enjoyed our stay and would be very happy to return here on a future trip.

                                                                      Owner's Response:
