Another day another Dollar (Point) in Lake Tahoe

Perched on the northwest corner of Lake Tahoe, the swish small community of Dollar Point is one of the most sought-after neighborhoods on the north shore. Located 3 miles east of Tahoe City, this modern village has all you need for a relaxing vacation, from swimming, tennis and watersports to lounging on the lakefront beach. Further afield are the ski resorts and summer hiking trails of Squaw Valley. Get your Lake Tahoe getaway off to the best start by booking a well-placed Dollar Point vacation rental, and start making some memories.

Things to do

Dollar Point - more a snow digger than a Gold Digger

A Dollar Point vacation rental makes the perfect Tahoe base at anytime of the year. A 7-mile drive from Dollar Point is the Squaw Valley ski resort. Boasting more than 4,000 acres of prime skiing terrain, it was proudly the host site of the 1960 Olympic Winter Games. An 8-minute drive southwest on the fringes of Tahoe City is the Gatekeeper's Museum, a reconstruction of the original gatekeeper's cabin built by Robert Montgomery Watson. It showcases Tahoe's long history, from the Washoe people to the logging industry, plus memorabilia from the 1960 Winter Olympics.

Activities

I need a dollar, a Dollar Point vacation is what I need

A Lake Tahoe vacation is all about the great outdoors. In the summer, watersports enthusiasts descend on Dollar Point to sail or waterski on the lake, while nature fans come to hike Tahoe's many woodland trails. In winter, it draws the snowsports crowd, who come to ski in the nearby resort of Squaw Valley, or tackle the cross-country skiing and snowshoe trails that run right from the village. Book a Dollar Point vacation rental between the lake beaches, and the bars and restaurants of Tahoe City, and have the best of the Lake Tahoe region right on your doorstep.

Weather

There's no business like snow business around Lake Tahoe

Lake Tahoe is a year-round destination. In the warm summer months, temperatures can reach a respectable 70-80 degrees, and the lake waters are warm enough for swimming. But in winter, when the mercury drops, the heavy snowfall attracts the winter sports crowd to Tahoe's shores. Both summer and winter can see the crowds, and Dollar Point vacation rentals can get snapped up quickly. For the best choice, visit in the shoulder seasons of spring and late fall, when the weather is still pleasant, but with the odd shower of rain, so pack an umbrella.

Natural features

The trails around Lake Tahoe win Best in Snow

Perched on the northwestern shores of Lake Tahoe, Dollar Point is 3 miles from Tahoe City and 7 miles from Squaw Valley ski resort. For snow sports fans, Dollar Point fringes on Tahoe's many cross-country skiing trails, which are used for mountain biking in the summer months. For more wooded hiking routes, head 2 miles west to Burton Creek State Park, which has some spectacular woodland trails overlooking the lake, where you can spot mountain beaver or the American marten. It's also a popular spot for birdwatchers, who come to witness the rare yellow-headed blackbird.
