About Marion Rittler

Our family lives in Portola Valley, California. We love the lake and skiing at Alpine and Squaw. Our children learned to ski in Lake Tahoe at Diamond Peak and we have been coming to Tahoe for over 20 years. We fell in love with Chinquapin the first time we saw it. Its a magical place and we hope you will enjoy it as much as we do.

Marion Rittler purchased this house in 2013

Why Marion Rittler chose Dollar Point

The first time that we saw Chinquapin we just could not believe that such a place still existed in Lake Tahoe. Immediately when you drive through the gates you feel like you are on vacation. It feels very secluded and private with 1 mile of private lake front, 2 piers, 2 beaches, a beautiful pool and a tennis court on the water. Yet within 5 minutes you are in Tahoe City with its great restaurants and nightlife and 15-20 minutes to Tahoe’s world class ski resorts. At Chinquapin you really can have it all.

What makes this house unique

Views Views Views and incredible Amenities. Sitting out on one of the three decks or from the living room, kitchen, dining room, 2 bedrooms you have a full view of Lake Tahoe and the surrounding mountains. You also see the shore of Chinquapin and the pier. Our house has been completely remodeled and has all the amenities you could need for a vacation.

We had been to Lake Tahoe in the winter but never in the summer, so we decided to spend a long, relaxing weekend here with another couple When we booked this property, we saw from the photos that there was a view of the lake. When we arrived and walked into the unit, we were astounded at just how magnificent the view was from the living room balcony. Not only that, the two large bedrooms offered the gorgeous view as well! This unit was perfect for our stay, with comfortable beds, nice bathrooms, full kitchen and comfy sofas and chairs in the living area. There's a great walking trail along the lake and around this beautiful complex. It was an easy, short drive to and from downtown Tahoe City where we ate at great restaurants, took a sunset cruise out of the harbor and rented bikes for a lovely ride along the creek. Marion was an accommodating host and quickly answered our questions when booking and after our stay. We'd definitely stay here again!

A gem on the lake!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in Marion’s house during the month of August, and couldn’t have had a better stay. The house is beautiful; very well furnished, decorated and equipped --not to mentioned it is in pristine condition. The views of the lake are breathtaking, whether it is from the spacious upper deck, or the two main bedrooms (each has their own separate deck). Our daughters had fun at the lake and the pool, none of which were busy. The house is located 5 minutes North of Tahoe City, which, for those like us who don’t know the area, is a lovely little beach town. In town, you can rent anything water related, as well as bikes etc. There are a ton of activities very close by, many of which are perfect for kids. If you are into boating or water skiing, you can arrange to be picked up from the deck right on property! The North of the lake is about outdoor, family and relaxation (you don’t have the big casinos). Marion made sure everything was well during our stay, and was very responsive with any questions we had prior to our stay, or while we were there.

We had a great family vacation in this home. It was quiet, spacious, clean. We really enjoyed the deck, with an amazing view over the lake. We also enjoyed the pool and tennis courts, just a short walk from the property. We would highly recommend this property.

Nice Tahoe Lakefront Townhouse

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in late June, 2016 and were very impressed with this townhouse. The view of Lake Tahoe was breathtaking. We loved sitting on the balcony in the morning overlooking the lake with our cup of coffee and planning out the day. The townhouse itself for perfect for our needs. The kitchen is well stocked and the interior is very comfortable. The main family room could use some more seating. The bedrooms were worked out great. Marion was very responsive to our needs. We would definitely rent here again.
