About the Property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Dollar Point Family Retreat is in a fabulous location just a short walk (.2 miles) from Dollar Point's private sandy beach on the North Shore of Lake Tahoe. There are filtered lake views and is perfect for the family getaway with four bedrooms and two baths. The Dollar Point area is very popular because of it's beautiful private beach, great pool, and 2 sets of tennis courts all located just 2 miles from Tahoe City. Within a 5 - 20 minute drive from this vacation accommodation you will find fabulous restaurants, shopping, world class ski areas such as Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows and championship golf courses at The Resort at Squaw Creek. (Please see link at bottom for more photos).

The living room has a wood burning gas fireplace, designer furnishings and a 46' Sony LCD and Play Station 3/Blue Ray DVD player. The living room opens onto a large furnished deck which has been set up for outdoor dining and grilling on the gas Weber BBQ.

The kitchen is very well equipped, for those who enjoy cooking, complete with espresso machine and Calphalon cookware. There is also a breakfast bar that seats 3 and is a great place to keep the cook company and enjoy a glass of wine. The attached dining room seats up to 10 and is the perfect place to relax with family and friends.

There is a hot tub in the back yard, and the house has an unusual amount of privacy due to green belt on one side. The house is on a very quiet street, one block from the private beach, tennis courts and pier. The development's pool & club house is about a half mile away.

Just minutes from the home there is outstanding bicycling on miles of paved bike trails that are separated from the roads and go down the West Shore as well as to Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows. If you prefer something more adventurous there are miles of mountain bike trails close by.

The ski areas of Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows are 12-15 minutes away. Northstar is about 20 minutes away.

Bedroom configuration:
Bedroom #1 The master bedroom with king sized bed
Bedroom #2 The 'Bunk Room' with 4 twin sized beds-PERFECT FOR CHILDREN, NOT SO GREAT FOR ADULTS.
Bedroom #3 The Guest adult bedroom with Queen sized bed
Bedroom #4 Has two twin sized beds.

The best place to rent watercraft (and get ski lessons too!) is High Sierra Water Ski School at Sunnyside. They book up, especially during July and August so reservations are strongly recommended.

We like to water ski early when the lake is the calmest and follow it with the best breakfast we know of at the Firesign Cafe across the street. It is very popular and can have a long wait on busy weekends.

Terrific bakery and take-out sandwich shop that is very close is the Sugar Pine Cakery on Lake Forrest Road. It's an 11 minute walk or 2 minutes by car.

Tahoe House has a wonderful bakery, prepared lunch and dinner items, coffees to go, wines etc.

Another great spot for to-go sandwiches is the PDQ market in Tahoma.

Worthwhile in summer:

Bliss State Park for hiking and picnics

Fishing the Truckee River

A bit of a drive, but worth it: Sand Harbor - it’s the most amazing beach with kayaks for rent.

Activities for children include:

Pony rides in Alpine Meadows and Northstar

Squaw Valley has harness trampoline jumping, an arcade, zip line, rock climbing and on top of the mountain via the tram or hiking, there is an ice skating rink and a large swimming pool and separate jacuzzi.

Tahoe City Commons Beach in the heart of town has a large play park, free Sunday concerts and on Wednesdays there is outdoor movie night.

Peewee Golf at Magic Carpet Golf in Carnelian Bay

Magic Carpet Golf - Carnelian Bay, CA

Rafting the Truckee River can be a blast but best to buy raft before you come to Tahoe. You can enjoy terrific outdoor dining at the River Ranch at the end too.

One of our many favorite hikes is the 5 Lakes trail. The trail head is via Alpine Meadows Rd.

We love riding bikes in Tahoe. If you didn't bring bikes, you can rent in Tahoe City at Dave's or the Olympic bike shop. It's an easy ride along the west shore or along the Truckee River all the way to Squaw Valley. If you have racks and are more adventurous, head to the "Fiberboard Highway" as the locals call it.

Another great hike is at the falls at Emerald Bay. The best time is the spring because the falls are powerful. In Sept there is an amazing fish hatch in the riverbeds that is available for viewing. The mansion there, Vinkingsholm, is open for tours during the summer.

Restaurants in Tahoe City that we recommend include:

Christie Hill

Lake Tahoe Brewery

The Bridgetender Cafe

The Dam Cafe


Jake's (Closed due to flooding in December. Should reopen in May)

Garwood in Carnelian Bay

The Tahoe City Golf Course has the great breakfast.

Other Restaurants:

Manzanita - Ritz Carlton - 20 minutes over 267

Mikuni - Sushi at Northstar

PlumpJack at Squaw Valley - 15 minutes away


� Supermarkets: Safeway and Save Mart - 5 minutes away

� West Shore Market - next to Sunnyside. It's a new market that is getting better each day. They have the best fresh seafood and steaks in the Tahoe basin, some basics groceries, sandwiches and a solid beer and wine selection.
