About fred

This is my winter ski getaway. I'm continually making upgrades to enhance the quality and enjoyment of my home away from home.

fred purchased this house in 2012

Why fred chose Lake Forest

Location, summer time amenities, and THE VIEW are what sold me on this home.

What makes this house unique

There is no better place than Lake Tahoe to enjoy family fun and outdoor recreation.

Good value in Dollar Pt

  • 5 of 5

Friendly owner, well located in Dollar Pt, reasonably priced, and with access to a very nice pool and activity area (2 blocks), and the private beach ( 1 mile).

We would go again.

Great location and value.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this home for four days. There were four of us that stayed in the home which was very comfortable. We were in the area to ski at Squaw Valley and Alpine which is a very short distance away.

This home is just a few minutes from local shopping and restaurants.

Our plans to stay at this home were made just a day prior to our arrival. The owner communicated with us in a very timely fashion which we very much appreciated.

The home is well maintained and very comfortable. The kitchen is very well equipped.

We would recommend this home to others and would certainly be very happy staying there again in the future.

Good value

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with our experience here and plan to stay again winter or summer. The place was very clean, well stocked and was generally well taken care of. The view of the lake through the trees is beautiful. There are three good bedrooms with bathrooms so plenty of space for everyone.

Reasonably priced and very well-stocked

  • 5 of 5

The previous reviewers have it nailed. We might add that the homeowner's association facilities, which renters are allowed to use, were great --- a large swimming pool, tennis courts, beach, ping pong, bocce and shuffleboard courts. Owner and son were very helpful in quickly assisting us if we had any questions or problems.

great place

  • 5 of 5

This property was so nice. It is in a very nice and quiet neighborhood. It is convenient to Tahoe City and the surrounding attractions. Easy access to the main living area with no stairs to climb. The great room was spectacular. Every morning while we were here I would awaken and go into the great room to watch the sun rise over the mountains across Lake Tahoe. The kitchen was equipped with anything you could need. The great room and bedrooms were very spacious and comfortable. The property was very clean when we arrived. The gas grill on the deck worked great when we grilled steaks after the Super Bowl with ample bottled gas and a backup bottle if needed. I cannot think of anything negative to say about the property. The property owner was great. I was able to make arrangements with him on extremely short notice and he was so easy to work with and his son and his son's dog were very friendly as well. The dog is a beautiful animal. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone visiting the area of North Lake Tahoe. It was just as advertised.

Very well stocked home with excellent views

  • 4 of 5

I agree with everything the previous guest said. This is a great place for 2/3 families. We were 6 adults, 2 kids ( 10 and 14) and 2 infants. The house is very well stocked with all that one needs on a vacation...we could have left a lot of our stuff back home. We had family style breakfasts and dinners and the kitchen had all that we needed and more. The linens were a plenty.

Kids enjoyed sledding just outside the house and a long walk around the development was breathtaking. There are 3 Ski resorts nearby..we skied Squaw and Diamond Peak.

Fred was great with communication and all my questions were answered promptly.

One of the up stairs bedrooms does get a bit too hot...we just shut the vents and that made a difference.

We hope to comeback again later in the Season.
