Perfect for the summer adventurer or winter skiing enthusiast, this three bedroom Dollar Point vacation home, just east of Tahoe City, offers a wonderful collection of amenities and close proximity to many Lake Tahoe attractions! With highly desirable Dollar Point membership, this vacation home includes seasonal access to the swimming pool, tennis courts, a beautiful clubhouse with games, fire pits, and, best of all, a private homeowners' beach.
You'll be on the bike trail that connects Tahoe City, West Shore, Squaw Valley and the Truckee River, close to beaches, and near Tahoe City's attractions. And when the snow is falling, the resorts of Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows are less than 10 miles away.
This home boasts a traditional feel, with a large, open, living room, dining room, and kitchen. You'll want to spend cozy evenings in front of the gas fireplace, maybe playing a family board game or just watching your favorite DVDs. There's also WiFi and cable, so you'll stay well-entertained here.
Sit down to a formal meal at the large wooden table or grab a snack at the breakfast bar. Whichever, you'll find all the appliances you need for either scenario in the bright, full kitchen. There's even a slow cooker for all-day stews, a coffee grinder for freshly ground beans each morning, and a tea kettle for that afternoon mug of Oolong.
Of course, a vacation home called "Observation Deck" needs a big deck to do a lot of observing from, and you won't be disappointed here! Just beyond the dining table, a glass door leads out to a wood deck with views of trees and the lake, extra seating for outdoor dining, and even a grill for cook outs in nice weather.
In the three bedrooms, you'll find a king-size bed, and two rooms, one featuring two twins and one with one twin and a set of bunk beds (top bunk should be for the kiddos only, please), making this a great home for a family ski getaway. There are also two bathrooms conveniently located throughout the house and a washer and dryer for keeping everyone in clean, dry socks while on vacation. This home will comfortably sleep 8 guests for a spectacular Tahoe trip, or up to 10 if you include the queen airbed.
The home is located in the Dollar Point community in North Tahoe, within easy walking distance to the clubhouse. Amenities available include tennis courts, a lap pool with diving board, bocce ball, shuffleboard, playground, Frisbees, and volleyball. The clubhouse offers WiFi, lifeguards on duty, private and group swim lessons, and babysitters' lists. Just half a mile from the house is the private Dollar Point beach, with barbecues, picnic areas, beach volleyball, and perfect spots for swimming, sand castle building, and even crawdad fishing. Spread your beach blanket out on the sand in the morning, then select the perfect chaise lounge by the pool in the afternoon! Please note that some amenities are open seasonally.
Cyclists can explore miles of bike paths, one of which can be accessed just outside the community. Embark on hikes with amazing lake and mountain views, or visit Treetop Adventure Park for an afternoon on the zip lines and rope courses.
Water sports enthusiasts will want to spend time on the Truckee River for fishing, rafting, kayaking, and more. There's so much else to do, it's almost easy to forget you are right on scenic Lake Tahoe! Take a cruise on the lake, rent a boat and do your own water sightseeing, water ski - there are endless aquatic possibilities here. Those who aren't into water will still find plenty of outdoor entertainment, from golfing in Tahoe City to horseback rides at Alpine Meadows to shopping in charming Truckee. And, of course, Nevada's casinos beckon just nine miles away.
In winter, you'll find several area ski resorts to choose from. Alpine Meadows is 8 miles away, Homewood is 9 miles, Squaw Valley is 10, and both Northstar-at-Tahoe and Diamond Peak are 14 miles away. Closer to home, the Tahoe City Winter Sports Park offers both cross country skiing and snowshoeing, plus equipment rentals.
For lovely lake views, fun in the Tahoe sun, or a Tahoe ski getaway, this Observation Deck vacation home will delight your whole family with its Dollar Point location, community amenities, and comfortable style.
