There are just some adventures every traveler should have in their lifetime, and the beauty and wonder of Tahoe is one that cannot simply be described, but must be experienced! Welcome to "The Lake House at Dollar," a Tahoe retreat comprised of a magnificent, newly remodeled 4 bed/2 bath home located on a tranquil cul-de-sac. This lovely family home invites you to reconnect with nature with stunning lake views. Mere steps from both the beach and pool, "The Lake House" provides the perfect location to enjoy Lake Tahoe’s famous sun and fun!
Our Tahoe Oasis
Exquisitely appointed with an abundance of light and space, you’ll find our Tahoe Oasis to be a master of warmth, comfort and serenity. From the moment you enter this home, you will experience an interior that reflects a dedication to relaxation and a commitment to unforgettable memories. Enter the bright and airy living room where you are welcomed by a massive old world brick fireplace and beautiful beamed ceilings. On chilly nights, the warmth of the hearth conjures the image of hot cocoa with marshmallows, storytelling and laughter that flows as the adventures of the day are recalled in vivid detail.
Just off the living room, up two steps on the right, is the dining room with its large wooden table that accommodates up to fourteen (14) people. With expansive use of glass, the dining area is streaming with natural light and extends your living space to the great outdoors and lake beyond. This is a place where everyone congregates in the winter or summer, whether to play cards, board games, read, catch up or just admire the view. A few steps away is the fully equipped kitchen, set to handle your culinary feats with ample prep space and cooking essentials. With the kitchen opening up to the dining room, conversation between the two rooms is easy, and the cook has full visibility to the deck, yard and view.
The door to the outside wrap-around deck creates seamless indoor/outdoor living and brings you ever closer to the views of the lake, trees and mountains outlining the horizon. Fully furnished with table and chairs, as well as gas BBQ, for your alfresco enjoyment, it's time to wow family and friends with your mastery at the grill. The spacious deck is the perfect place to entertain, enjoy a favorite beverage, star gaze or relax with a book while enjoying the sounds of nature. Whatever your pleasure, this outdoor haven is your premier destination!
A walk up the hall presents two bedrooms on the left and the newly remodeled hall bathroom on the right. Each of these bedrooms features two extra-long twin beds. The bathroom includes double sinks to streamline your daily routine and a door that closes off the bath/shower/toilet to allow multi-tasking for busy families. Continue four steps up to another bedroom with twin beds and the beautiful master queen suite.
The master bedroom is a peaceful haven with generous layout, soothing color palate, large closets and view. The “bear-covered” queen size bed is complete with a Ralph Lauren pillow-top covering. With the newly remodeled master bath and large glass shower, your master suite allows quiet and privacy from the living areas, if you desire.
A Central Location
The house sits on a corner lot covering 1/4 of an acre. The quiet cul-de-sac location allows for children to safely play without the worries of cars and traffic. In the front of the house is paved off-street parking, large enough to fit five (5) automobiles. Tahoe City is just 2 ½ miles distance for easy access, whether driving or jogging. Situated an easy 5 minute walk to the pool and tennis courts, 7 minutes to Seven-Eleven and 10 minutes to the beach and pier, this residence enjoys a central location while feeling as if it is worlds apart.
When you are ready to get out of the house and off property, every convenience and activity awaits nearby. It's a short 7 minute drive to Tahoe City, 25 minutes to Truckee, 15 minutes to Kings Beach, 25 minutes to North Shore Stateline for gambling, 60 minutes to South Lake Tahoe and 60 minutes to Reno. Location! Location! Location! If you are looking for a centrally located home with great proximity to everything, then "The Lake House" has you covered!
A Place for All Seasons
Summer at the “Lake House” – Dollar Point is the ultimate “mecca” for family fun during the summer! As the warm summer sun shines blissfully overhead, your Tahoe adventure begins with a visit to the lake. Lake Tahoe is a short 10 minute walk from the house, giving you prime access to the cooling waters and golden sands of Dollar Point. Follow the path from the two lower tennis courts to the lake where you will find the large Dollar Point Pier, expansive beach with beach umbrellas, a sand volleyball court, bathrooms, BBQ and picnic areas -- everything you need for fun in the sun! The Dollar Point Pier is known for some of the best “crawdadding” on the lake. Walk three blocks in the opposite direction from the house and you’ll come to the Homeowner Association’s swimming pool. Completely fenced for security, the pool complex includes a newly refinished swimming pool, 3 tennis courts, bocce ball court, putting green, shuffleboard, ping pong, horseshoes, vast grass areas for lounging, playing, BBQ/picnics, and of course, bathrooms and showers. This is where the “pool staff” resides. These friendly attendants serve as life guards, swim instructors, and manage pool and tennis activities throughout the summer. There is also a resident tennis pro who will gladly fine-tune your game for all of those Serena Williams/Rafael Nadal enthusiasts.
Winter at the “Lake House” -- Whether the sun is shining or the snow is falling, Lake Tahoe is beautiful all year round! Come to “The Lake House at Dollar” for winter sports, but stay to enjoy the picturesque views of Lake Tahoe. Access to the house during winter is very easy. Roads are plowed, and the parking area in front of the house is cleared daily. Eight (8) ski resorts are within 45 minutes of your front door. World renowned Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows and Northstar are a mere 20 minutes away. Smaller, but family-friendly, Diamond Peak Resort and Homewood Mountain Resort are less than 30 minutes away. Driving to Tahoe in the morning? Stop at Boreal or Sugar Bowl, spend the day skiing, and it’s a 40 minute drive to the “Lake House.” On windy days, you might want to travel the 45 minutes to Mt. Rose, which seems to be more protected from blustery winds. If you’re a cross country skier, the Tahoe Cross Country Ski area is literally across the highway from Dollar Point and offers over 40 miles of trails, some of which offer beautiful Lake Tahoe Views. Sledding is available at most of the ski resorts, but great tracks are also located at Tahoe Vista, Granlibakken and North Tahoe Park. Lastly, our own kids have spent years perfecting their sledding runs right on our own property, which rivals the famous “Cuesta Run” in St. Moritz. Now that’s a lot of winter fun at “The Lake House at Dollar!”

About the owner: Well, we've been coming to "The Lake House at Dollar" as long as we can remember. It was always our parents' dream to have a vacation house in Lake Tahoe. On a sunny summer day drive they tumbled onto The Lake House when the owner/builder/developer was looking to move into a larger home. They couldn't pass it up. As children we spent many summers at Dollar Point while our Dad commuted up on the weekends. This house is full of many wonderful memories of birthdays, celebrations, ski weekends and summer trips. It was always the place where our family and friends gathered. Fast forward and now it's our children who grew up at "The Lake House at Dollar" and they have the same memories as we do. We want them to be able to raise their children to enjoy Lake Tahoe, so we decided to remodel and update the house. We've completed the remodel and now are opening The Lake House to others. Our hope, while staying here, is that you can feel the"specialness" that our family has felt for so many years.
