About Gail Baker

This home in Dollar Point Subdivision of Tahoe City was my primary residence where my kids grew up and went to school. They walked to the pool by themselves and it is on a very quiet short street. Dollar Point is the nicest subdivision on the North Shore with the best and most amenities. I live in Truckee so I am close by to take care of the property. I know you will enjoy your stay at my home.

Gail Baker purchased this house in 1994

Why Gail Baker chose Lake Tahoe North Shore CA

I didn't want to sell my wonderful home when I bought a new home in Truckee so I decided to turn it into a vacation rental in 2002. The location in Dollar Point is the best and I can still use all of the amenities.

What makes this house unique

Dollar Point has the best amenities of any other subdivision in North Lake Tahoe. Don't be fooled by VRBO's listing of Dollar Point properties. Most of them listed in Dollar Point aren't really in Dollar Point and they don't have all the amenities. Make sure to ask about the amenities.

Our family very much enjoyed our stay at Gail Baker's home in Dollar Point. We found the home spacious, clean, and nicely decorated. It had a well equiped kitchen that made it easy to prepare meals. Tahoe City is just minutes away and has all the best shopping, eating, and recreation that Lake Tahoe has to offer.

We definitely plan on coming back!

Fantastic Rental!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a few days at this rental on Dollar Point for a summer getaway with 4 adults and our 3 year old daughter. We couldn't have been more pleased. The house is in a great location - Dollar Point is close enough to Tahoe City to experience its charm but away from the hustle if you prefer that as well. We enjoyed access to the private Dollar Point beach and the chairs/umbrellas/dock. Although we didn't make it to the neighborhood pool, it looked lovely as well. The recent home renovation was very well done. The kitchen was very well-appointed and all of the furniture was high quality. The beds especially were quite comfortable. There is a fantastic deck with great furniture to enjoy the beautiful lake views and the photos do not do the view justice. We spent the majority of our evenings out on the deck. Our 3-year-old loved watching the bunnies come out on the lawn at dusk. We would highly recommend this rental!

Great getaway, beautifully remodeled!

  • 5 of 5

I spent a long weekend at Gail's home with my girlfriend and 5 year old son, and it was absolutely perfect. I was already familiar with Dollar Point, as my parents had a vacation home there when I was a child. What a beautiful home this is, looks even better in person. Great views, a nice size play area in back of the house (it was the first time my 5 year old has been to the snow) and the kitchen was just gorgeous. My girlfriend loves to cook, and was in absolute heaven. The beds were comfy, carpets clean and new looking, just an overall great experience, and we plan on making this our twice yearly Tahoe vacation. Gail was also very attentive and easy to work with. We already miss morning coffee with that beautiful view of the lake.

Fabulous Rental!

  • 5 of 5

Our family absolutely loved our stay at this beautiful home on Dollar Point, near Tahoe City. It is situated in a beautiful neighborhood and community, and the home itself has gorgeous views of the lake from both floors, the kitchen, family room and master bedroom. The kitchen is updated and beautifully appointed with everything you need, and our family was able to cook and bake there with ease. Having two living spaces is fantastic, as well as the slate floor foyer during winter months when peeling off your snow covered boots and wet clothes! As the home had just completed a remodel, everything was comfortable,updated and very clean. Tahoe City was just a few minutes away by car and is a fun, small town to visit with shops, restaurants and a movie theatre. Northstar and Squaw/Alpine ski resorts were an easy 15 minute drive, even in heavy snow. The owner was terrific about responding to any questions or needs we had right away. I would recommend this home to anyone!

long term leasing tenant

  • 5 of 5

We leased this property two years in a row because of access to the cross country skiing area near Dollar Point. It was a wonderful experience and we enjoyed it immensely. The home is beautifully maintained and comfortable for families. It has easy access to the entire north Tahoe region. The owner is professional and very personable. I would recommend this home to anyone.

If you are interested in renting a motor boat, jet ski, Stand Up Paddle Boards, and Kayaks they are available in Tahoe City only 5 minutes from the home. Stand Up Paddle Boards are also available in Carnelian Bay 5 minutes away.

Emerald Bay is not to be missed which is the most photographed picture of Lake Tahoe. There is also the beautiful Vikingsholm at the end of the bay which has a great tour for a minor fee. The Tea House on the island is very cool too. Eagle Falls is right there and if you cross the highway there is another great hike to another beautiful lake.

One of the most favorite hikes that I take friends who visit Tahoe is the Rubicon Trail to Emerald Point which is another option. It is mostly along the water with the most fantastic views of Big Blue!

Sand Harbor on the East Shore is a beautiful beach and the East Shore usually has warmer water for swimming.

There are so many options for fun please feel free to ask me any questions because I have lived in the area since 1972.
