About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 9)

Our family built this house in 1971 in the beautiful, quiet Dollar Point neighborhood. It is a very well-maintained home that has a renovated kitchen and upper level bathroom. This is a quiet, residential area that will make you feel like you're at home. Yet you are minutes from town, ski & board mountains, trails, water, golf, shopping and more. The house is built on a hill so you will always have a view of beautiful Lake Tahoe. Not to mention great sledding in the winter. We are partial to 'Old Tahoe' ways and enjoy restaurants that have endured the times like Bacchi's on Lake Forest Drive. This old style Italian place can be walked to from the house - which you might need following dinner. There is a reservoir across North Lake Drive about a 1-mile walk from the house. This recreation area meets up with the Tahoe Rim Trail for endless hours of biking and hiking. If you're into geocaching, there are some fun caches there - including ours called 'Dogpatch'.

Paved bike path by Dollar Point entrance that is easy ride to town, along West Shore, or to Squaw Valley.

Keywords: spacious, comfortable, walking distance to beach, pool, hiking, and biking. 15 minutes from most ski hills. 3 miles to town.

About André

Built by my parents, this cabin has been a family vacation get-away for many, many years.

We call it "the cabin" but really it is a house, with all the rooms and amenities.

André purchased this house in 1971

Great place for a group of people

  • 5 of 5

This was our third year of staying at the Luthard cabin and it was great. It's a good vacation place for a group. It's well-equipped, child-friendly and conveniently located. This was our first year to utilize the swimming pool and tennis courts that are part of the association. We thoroughly enjoyed both of them. Andre is very accommodating.

Great family house

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a family get-together to celebrate my mother-in-laws birthday. It was comfortable for all 11 of us, and provided great space for us to spend time together. The location was fantastic, and we enjoyed access to the lake/dock. Andre was very helpful and accommodating. We would love to return again soon!

Wonderful, relaxing "Cabin" stay

  • 5 of 5

We took a trip to Tahoe with our son and family. Very relaxing time. Lots of activities for all. The Cabin also provided time out areas for everyone. The dining table was perfect for the 6 of us for meals and games. The kitchen provided all things we needed to prepare meals. The owner, Andre, was very responsive to our questions. We would definitely consider returning to the "Cabin"... (which is more a home than a cabin!)

Wonderful Experience in Tahoe!

  • 5 of 5

The house we stayed in for our ski trip in April was everything we had hoped for at a very reasonable price. There was plenty of space for our 2 families to spread out and be comfortable. Having a 2 car garage with a work bench was a plus. We were able to put our cars inside, saving us from having them be covered in snow when we wanted make a quick get away in the morning to hit the slopes. The work bench was a great space for me to wax my skis. There are 2 fireplaces on the main level with plenty of firewood, which made for some cozy evenings. There also was internet for the times I needed to get some work done. The kitchen was great as well! There was plenty of space to make big meals to feed our hungry crew after getting off the slopes. Andre, the owner, was always quick to respond with all my questions. He was so friendly and helpful and was a big reason why our stay was such a huge success.
