Property type house

About the property

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

Our family built this house in 1970 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 1970

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.

Great Tahoe Stay

  • 4 of 5

Very well layed out Tahoe home. Lots of room for multiple families to hang out and play. The kids bunk room was wonderful. The game room was fun for the kids. Well stocked with kitchen needs and extra linens. Good location and wow, tons of snow this visit! Owner was excellent to communicate with throughout the process, even with some minor issues when we were there. Although I do wish that we would have been notified of those issues before we arrived, so we would have been aware. The bed linens could be updated, some basic toiletries would be nice to have included. Maybe some better outside lighting and house numbering (it was very hard to arrive at night during the snow trying to find the right house). But all in all, a nice place for large groups to gather and enjoy Tahoe. We hope to rent again soon.

Owner's Response: Yes, the snow has been incredible this year! So much and piled so high that house numbers in two locations are obscured from the street. Sorry about that. I'll see about some additional locations for lighting and house numbers. The snow and rain has also caused some minor flooding in the garage and resulted in the garage door becoming damaged. This has since been repaired. Brand new flannel sheets are now available for all the beds which are welcome for winter nights. Although soap dispensers are in each bathroom, I will think again about small hand soaps and shampoo. I appreciate the feedback and hope to see you again!

Ski week-end in January

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is well-appointed, with plenty of charmful touches on its Swiss heritage - even a fondue caquelon! Nice layout, even if the cabin is not the most modern - but the quality/price ratio is right. We were a group of 11 people and there was plenty of space to accomodate us all. The kids loved to play with all the dolls and other toys - and the air hockey table was a hit! Andre was super responsive and easy to work with, all in all it was a great experience. We would rent the cabin again.

We love this property !

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful Christmas at the Luthard Family Cabin. Arriving on Thursday before Christmas, we were able to beat the snow. Then we enjoyed watching the grandkids at the No. Tahoe Regional Park sledding hill (good price -$5/car and good fun- $5 per person on the sled hill) @ Tahoe Vista. Plenty of wood to keep us warm and cozy and the 'ski Christmas tree' was perfect. Christmas day was a 3-hour Hunting-O-Poly game while dinner cooked. This is our second holiday stay at the Luthard Family Cabin and it is perfect for our family needs. Andre is so great to work with and we are always thrilled to be in Dollar Point.
