About Lyle & Mary

Our two families purchased this vacation home and have enjoyed sharing it with family and friends for several years. As our children have grown older and moved away, we spend less time at the lake. We decided it was time to open our home for others to enjoy. This home is tastefully decorated and offers plenty of room for large family get together s. There are six large bedrooms, each with their own full bathrooms. The main level offers a beautiful living room with very high ceiling (two stories) and an incredible fireplace. The interior walls are knotty pine and there are plenty of windows to enjoy looking at the lake and teh mountains. The home faces south. While not located on the water's edge, you ahve the same feeling as a lakeside home yet a much quieter and more private experience. The Dollar Point Private Homeowner's Beach is very close and accessible from the rear yard.

Why Lyle & Mary chose Lake Tahoe North Shore

The location is very desirable. You have the feel of being a lakefront property even though the property is not actually a lakefront location. This is due to the vacant lot that adjoins our lot. The Dollar Point HOA beach/tennis courts are just feet away ( a few hundred). The area is quiet with lots of trees and open space.

What makes this house unique

All bedrooms (6) have full baths. Incredible views. Quiet location. Walk to the lake/beach/tennis in less than 5 minutes. 2.5 miles from Tahoe City. Numerous ski areas within 7 to 15 miles (Homewood Mtn. Alpine Meadows, Squaw Valley, Northstar, Diamond Peak. Heavenly & Kirkwood are on the other end of the lake - About 1 to 1.5 hour drive. Reno is 45 minutes. Truckee 15 minutes.

Wonderful Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

Words can't explain how beautiful this home is! The views take your breath away, and the owners have thought of everything to make you feel at home. We came for Valentines Day with our best friends, our children(all grown and married) there were 6 couples including my Husband and I…and then we had the kids, they got to go to the snow everyday and then come back to a warm fire and great meals made in the beautiful Kitchen. Did I mention how nice and helpful Lyle was, knowing he was there to answer any questions was really nice. Thank you for letting us spent such a wonderful weekend…We'll be back for sure!

Great Vacation House

  • 5 of 5

Terrific vacation house for a large group in an excellent location (Tahoe City - great proximity to skiing and right on the lake). The kitchen was well appointed and easy to use, with a great pantry. We cooked in every night because the kids (7 of them, ages 3-15) were tired from long ski days and wanted to hang out. We made huge breakfasts before we took off for the day. Great table that seated 11 of us adjacent to the kitchen. Ample family room stocked with games, with a fireplace and hearth good for drying mittens and hats, and lots of seating, and gorgeous unobstructed views of the lake. Loved the pool table in the adjacent room and the hot tub on the deck. Added bonus to have 2 laundry rooms (one upstairs with the 5 bedrooms) and one in the back hall/entry way to dry wet ski gear.

5 great bedrooms upstairs with super comfy beds, each with its' own bathroom. The only disappointment was that my husband and I were in the downstairs bedroom where the mattress/bedding paled in comparison to the beds upstairs which everyone kept raving about! Could also use more hooks for coats.

Wonderful owner who was helpful and replied promptly to emails/texts. Detailed information provided by the owner. Would definitely stay again, but next time, will grab an upstairs bedroom.

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to write a review. We are pleased that you enjoyed our home and found it comfortable and welcoming. We will add some extra hooks in the entry "mud" room. Good suggestion. All of the bedrooms are very nice, large and have their own full baths. There is the main master bedroom that is the most desirable that should go to the hosts (in this case you). We will make a note to advise future guests to grab this one first. The bedroom you were in is popular with people that prefer not having to deal with stairs. Since mobility is sometimes an issue this bed is set up with a lower profile. We will revisit this as we want everyone to be comfortable. We look forward to your next visit. Thanks! Mary & Lyle

Great Tahoe house

  • 5 of 5

This is a terrific house for a large group/family. I researched a lot of homes before I chose this one and it exceeded my expectations. The kitchen and great room area are large and well appointed. It was easy to have everyone together in that space. The kitchen is particularly well stocked, with high end appliances and lots of counter space. We cooked in almost every meal and had everything we needed. The fact that every bedroom has it's own bathroom and TV was a huge plus since we had 6 teenagers. This is probably one of the best locations in Dollar Point because it's just a few steps to the beach and tennis courts. You will enjoy the views from the deck and the big hot tub. The home was very clean with everything you need: beach equipment, beach towels/toys, games, puzzles and more. The owners were responsive and easy to work with throughout the process. I thought the rate was very fair and actually a good value for everything you get with this house. I highly recommend Dollar Point and this house for the perfect Tahoe vacation.

Great house, amazing location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at 50 Lassen for 6 nights with another family - a total of 4 adults and 5 teenagers. The house is perfect for multiple families as each bedroom has it's own bathroom. The house is well appointed, with a well stocked kitchen and super-detailed instructions for everything! There are two refrigerators! The deck is beautiful with an unobstructed view of the lake. The hot tub has the same view and worked very well. It's an easy walk out the backyard directly to the beach and tennis courts. We had a wonderful time and plan to return again!

Margaret's Family Week at the Lake

  • 5 of 5

This Lake Tahoe Lakeside Luxury Home is everything you could want for the perfect family get-away. Lyle and Mary are the perfect hosts surprising us with an early check-in and a lovely gift basket with wine and munchies. Everyone in the family loved this beautiful home whose pictures don't begin to give this home the WOW factor it deserves. From the moment we stepped in the door, we felt at home, with plenty of room for our kids and grandkids, and lovely views from everywhere. We all enjoyed the lovely hot tub with its picturesque setting and the ample outdoor seating helped us entertain several drop in friends who were also staying nearby. Everyone was mesmorized by the gorgeous sunsets and close proximity to the private Dollar Point Beach. Our oldest grandson and son-in-law had nightly tennis games on the court which we could all observe while the little toddlers loved running on the huge backyard fenced-in lawn. Two refrigerators helped keep the beer cold and our short trek to the beach was so welcomed after having stayed at several other Dollar Point homes in the past. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you need to create gourmet meals. And the community pool was enjoyed for its early morning lap swimming and a quick afternoon swim. This is as great home and we hope to rent it again next summer. Margaret and family

Great Ski House

  • 5 of 5

Our group of eight 55+ men really enjoyed staying at this house. It was very comfortable and provided plenty of space for our group. Each man had his own bed and the 6+ bathrooms were very convenient. The kitchen, dining room and common areas were perfect for our needs and spacious. We used the hot tub which was hot and easy to use. We would definately recommend to others and return to this house in the future for another group ski trip.
