About Catherine

I'm a native Arkansan (love the Razorbacks!) who has lived in CA for 6 years now. For 5 years, we spent many long weekends and weeks up in Tahoe. We got married in Tahoe and our daughter was enjoying her first Tahoe hike at 3 months old. After experiencing a wide range of vacation rentals, we decided to get a place of our own in 2015.

Catherine purchased this house in 2015

Why Catherine chose Dollar Point

Awesome to have so many places to explore within close proximity whether it's a hot summer day or an amazing powder day. We love the open floor plan and big fenced backyard for dogs and kids. It's a quiet neighborhood with miles of trails just a short walk down the street. The quick bike ride or drive to Tahoe City's downtown restaurants and stores also makes the location super convenient. Great getaway!

What makes this house unique

We take pride in making this house a home that we love and hope our guests love it too. Our dogs are part of the family and that's why our Tahoe home is dog-friendly for renters as well.

Nice house - good location

  • 5 of 5

The house is very nice and comfortable. Nice location - convenient to Tahoe City, trails, beach. The fenced backyard was great for our dog (note - you cannot just open a door and let the dog out to the fenced yard.) The kitchen is well-stocked. Catherine, the owner, was very good to work with.

The Tahoe XC ski center is very close to the house. We did a short hike from there, but looks like there are miles/miles of trails - for winter and summer use. The property is in a residential area, but very close to the forest with lots of trails. Also close to the beach.

Beautiful comfortable homey

  • 5 of 5

The property is perfect for a family or a medium size group. The large kitchen is fully stocked with really nice cookware, utensils, even Tupperware. Lovely fireplace which easily heats the entire top floor. Close to everything. Nature,as well as amenities. Feels local more than touristy, but, still with plenty of privacy. Very clean. Great for dogs, with a fenced yard big enough for throwing ball or letting them play. Cat and Amelia and very sweet and helpful, but not on site, and leave you to it if you don't need anything. Tons of local kayaking, hiking, camping, etc. Loved it.

Great Place for a Tahoe Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The house is spacious, and very comfortable, in a quiet neighborhood. Very convenient to the Lake and Tahoe City. The backyard was wonderful for our dogs, and is very securely fenced. We hope to come back again!

Comfortable, clean, dog friendly house.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. The living area is large and very comfortable. The bathrooms are nicely updated and there were shampoos, conditioners, and lotion for all. Kitchen is well stocked and my dog found a few balls in the backyard for tossing.

Walkable to a nice beach that says no dogs but there were many there so it was perfect for tiring out my retriever for the night.

Don't know if there is air conditioning as we were not able to figure out the heating/cooling system but it was not too hot that weekend so we were fine.

Would definitely recommend!

Pure comfort in Tahoe

  • 5 of 5

This home was the perfect place to come back to after all of the activities the area has to offer. It's amazingly-stocked kitchen (stuff I don't even have in my own home) made cooking meals and prepping snacks a breeze. The sectional in the living area was so comfortable that some of my family ended up using that as their bed, depending on the night! I loved the way the home was laid out; after spending five full days together in cars and hotel rooms, my family and I were ready for some space to spread out and this home was perfect. The kids had their haven downstairs and my husband and I enjoyed the upstairs space. I'm a big "outdoors" person and really enjoyed spending a lot of time on the deck, which got just the right amount of sun. As stupid as it sounds, I even loved the washer and dryer! New, large, efficient and did a great job cleaning some pretty dirty clothes after a couple of days in Yosemite. I don't know what it says about me that I'm excited about a washer & dryer but I am. I would recommend this place to family and friends and look forward to going back sometime, but next time I'll definitely bring my dogs too!

Great space, modern and rustic.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for a three day weekend, it was perfect. Very close to the beaches, and restaurants, had a fully stocked kitchen, and lots of fun dog friendly amenities. 9/10 would recommend.
