Comfortable Family House in North Lake Tahoe
average rating of 4.25 based on 4 reviews

  • 4 of 5

This is the 19 year that I have booked this home for our annual family Tahoe weekend. It is an ideal home for growing families...we all love it and it is tradition! It is not fancy but very comfortable, well-maintained and a great location. Thank you!

Amazing Location!

  • 4 of 5

We spent a week at this home in August for a family reunion. There was plenty of space and room for our large group. Suzie was awesome! After having booked another place back in March, we were told the lady had doubled booked it and we were needing to find a new place in three weeks as we had people flying in from all over the country for this reunion. Suzie got back to me quickly and made sure she could get someone to clean it on such short notice before cashing my check. The location was the greatest. You are a 5-10 minute walk to the private dollar point beach. The pool access was awesome! The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because we did have some spiders and the deck nails were coming out at the bottom which didn't make it super safe for our babies. I would just recommend getting the house sprayed so the spider situation both in and out of the house it taken care of. Other than that, it was perfect and Suzie was phenomenal to work with!

Great value at a fantastic location

  • 4 of 5

We spent a week at the Dollar Point house for a family get together. Our party ranged in age from 78 years old to 3 years old. My first impression of the house was that it was older. However, we soon discovered that is well-kept, well stocked, functional and spacious. The king bedroom worked well for my elderly parents because it has support rails in the bathroom and a carpeted floor. There are some minor fixes to door latches and flooring that need to be done. The family room is supplied with games, videos, books, etc. The huge deck with views of the lake was one of the home's best features. The best thing about the house was the location! Just blocks to a private beach and pool. You don't have to drive anywhere to access these amenities or trails. We would be happy to stay here again. It's a great value overall.

Perfect Family Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

This house helped our family Christmas feel much like it was at home, except we don't have stunning lake views from our kitchen and living room normally! It's well-lived-in and comfortable, as well as the best-stocked vacation rental we've ever stayed in; it became a joke among us to "ask the house" for something and it would magically appear. The hill down to the neighborhood beach is great for sledding, and the house includes multiple sleds (of course). Highly recommended for big families and large groups. We'll be back from Christmas another year and also in the summer. The location and value for the money can't be beat!

Note: The TV in the living room is now a nice big flat screen, not the older one pictured; take a look at the owner's Web site for a more recent photo of the living room to see it (there are also pictures of the bedrooms there).
