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 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 remodeled and has all the amenities you could need for a vacation. Great hiking and sledding and private lake beaches on the property, and world class skiing is minutes away.

Excellent cabin

  • 5 of 5

Great location close to Tahoe City, with a short drive to both Squaw and Northstar. We enjoyed barbequing on the deck taking in the unobstructed views of the lake. Cabin was clean and kitchen adequately stocked with dishware and appliances. Owner Marion was amazingly responsive. We will be back for future trips.

Fantastic location with a beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

Loved staying here during the winter holiday break. The house is spacious and easily fit us as a couple, two children and in laws. We spent 3 days skiing at squaw and found the location to be great and so convenient to squaw village. The views are breathtaking and we loved the proximity to stores and restuarants nearby. Marion was the most gracious host and very responsive. We can't wait to return again!!!

Beautiful home with stunning lake views, optimally situated on the lake.

  • 5 of 5

Chinquapin is the ideal location for a vacation! Within the property we enjoyed tennis, swimming in the pool and lake, hiking the nature trails and walking the picturesque path along the lake. We loved the close proximity of this home to our favorite restaurants and activities. Our week was memorable and we look forward to returning to this beautiful home soon!

Lovely Condo And Wonderful Owners

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this property. The HOA was making some repairs on the roofs and neighborhood -- causing some unexpected noise -- but the owner IMMEDIATELY took steps to remedy the situation. The property is fantastic; the beds, kitchen, living room, and bathrooms were cozy, yet tasteful, and the sound of the lake's waves lapping against the shore was exactly what we wanted. The views? See for yourself. The pictures are accurate!

I highly recommend this condo and location (minutes from Tahoe City's lovely restaurants). Book it!

Owner's Response: Dear Lesley, Thank you for your kind review. We really appreciated your patience and attitude. The HOA was fixing damage from last years winter storms, getting ready for the next winter. We are happy that you could enjoy your stay at the lake and in our house despite the unexpected work. September and October are such quiet and beautiful months at the lake. We hope you will come and stay with us again. Best, Marion

Fantastic Labor Day Weekend

  • 5 of 5

This property and the Chinquapin development both far surpassed our expectations upon arrival this past weekend. The gated development was the perfect retreat on a busy holiday weekend. The grounds, tennis courts and private beaches were all beautiful. The home itself is awesome with amazing lake views from all three levels. We enjoyed having all of our meals out on the amazing deck and appreciated all of the wonderful amenities the home provided. My wife, kids and I all agreed that we have found our new "go to" place anytime we are back in Tahoe.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the fantastic review. Chinquapin definitely is always a respite from the rest of Tahoe especially when its busy. When it gets more quiet in September and October or June before summer officially starts it feels like you have the lake and Chinquapin to yourself. I hope to see you and your family again soon.

Beautiful place, wonderful views

  • 5 of 5

My family of 6 really enjoyed our summer vacation. Views from all 3 floors were spectacular. There was so much to do for kids just a short distance away or on property from jet skis to bike rentals to canoe rentals. Marion was also a pleasure to work with and very reponsive.
