About Colleen & Craig Bissell

Our family resides in Lafayette, California. Since childhood, both my husband and myself have always dreamed of having a beautiful spot in Lake Tahoe. We both learned to ski at Sugar bowl and Squaw Valley. And, we both loved to swim and waterski especially over the 4th! We both went to Berkeley and raised our Children with frequent visits to the lake.

Colleen & Craig Bissell purchased this condo in 2013

Why Colleen & Craig Bissell chose Dollar Point

The time was finally right to buy a place at the lake. We had looked at Donner Lake years ago and Chambers Landing over the past few years. Over Labor Day we decided to take a look at Chinquapin. It was love at first sight! We never looked at another property - this was it!

A picture simply can not capture the magnitude of our beautiful lake views. It takes your breath away.

What makes this condo unique

Gated Resort,

A mile of lake frontage property,

Very Green grounds,

Two boat docks,

Seven championship tennis courts

Mid Summer Dream.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Chinquapin and the Tahoe City area. The condo was just perfect. Very well prepared to accept guests and the view from the deck is simply spectacular. A very relaxing and soothing time for us.

We had a fantastic stay at your little piece of paradise! From the moment we arrived, we felt right at home - yet spoiled at the same time! The photos on your rental listing don't lie ... it was all we thought it would be, and more!!! We've already recommended it to several friends. The only drawbacks for us were the lighting (wish it was better in the bedroom and we couldn't get some lights or the ceiling fan to work) and the unexpected loud parking lot maintenance on our last full day there. If this place was dog friendly, it would be the only place we'd choose to rent in Tahoe ... it was WONDERFUL!

Fabulous morning view!

  • 5 of 5

We love waking up, opening the bedroom door and the lake view is just so breath taking!! We had a relaxing time at the condo.

Went out for meals and love trying new places, have more places to try for next time!! It was summer time, but the complex is very quiet and relaxing.

Great new bed, but the last one was too, and my husband loved the sheets! The condo has everything you need to be quite comfy at home the whole time if you choose to stay put. When we getaway, we go for relaxing and trying new restaurants and it happens perfectly when we stay here!! See you soon.

Quiet, relaxing, and what a view!

  • 5 of 5

I spent a week in this lovely unit starting on a holiday weekend (Labor Day). Even though the complex was quite full over the holiday weekend, the atmosphere was nicely quiet. I would recommend Chinquapin in general as a super location as it's quiet yet still convenient to restaurants and shopping. This unit in particular is in a great location - the pictures cannot do justice to the view from the deck. Spent mornings & evenings there just staring across the lake. Craig & Colleen have done a great job with the furnishings, especially in the redone & modern kitchen. I don't think that I've rented a unit with such a well-equipped kitchen. This was especially welcome since I was there for a week and did some cooking & baking. I was amazed at how well-stocked the pantry was with items such as pancake mix. Craig & Colleen were great to work with all through the process & were prompt with communications. The Chinquapin office staff is likewise as pleasant. The bed is really comfortable, as is the sofa. It would be so easy to "hunker down" here for a long time.... :-)

Wonderful place to recharge for a weekend. This condo was very comfortable and relaxing. Loved the deck overlooking the lake and a fire place that made you feel like you were outdoors. Will definitely be back.

Outstanding experience! Marvelous location, decor and amenities.

  • 5 of 5

Chinquapin is a prime development and location. Unit 154 was perfect for our get away. We owned a lake view property there for a number of years and was delightful to revisit. We explored a number of old haunts on the west shore, Squaw Valley, Truckee and Northstar. We ate in one night (great gas grill) and had breakfast on the deck each morning. Wonderful meals at long standing restaurants - Firesign Cafe, Old Post Office, Wolfdales and Christy Hill. Truly a deja vu few days at Lake Tahoe!
