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.

Excellent alternative to staying on the mountain

  • 5 of 5

Three adult couples shared this space on a ski trip to Squaw Valley. At first we were a bit concerned about the 20 minute drive to the mountain, but if you have to drive at all, 5 minutes vs. 20 isn't that big of a deal. The price was half what we would have spent on the mountain, and the view is spectacular. The access to shopping at Tahoe City is another plus. All of us agreed that we would do this again versus staying at Squaw.

Owner's Response: Thank you for you review. We are also big skiers and love coming back to our house by the lake to enjoy the sunrises and sunsets from there.

Gorgeous lakeside property

  • 5 of 5

Our family fell in love with this spacious lakeside property. The views of the lake were phenomenal and the furnishings were first-class. The rental process went flawlessly and the owner was extremely responsive to the one minor issue we had. Proximity to Tahoe City is excellent - about a five minute drive. Before arriving, we were expecting to spend most of our evenings at restaurants around the lake, but ended up having all our our dinners at home. If I had to find one minor issue, it would be that we are not familiar with Dish TV at all, so we never figured out any of the TV's in the bedrooms, which in the end turned out to be a very good thing.

Chinquapin Cabin Was Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

The views and feel in this cabin is perfect for a family vacation. Well stocked clean kitchen with empty refrigerator (always a plus- hate old food and jars in there-yuk). The furniture on the deck is cozy and perfect for morning coffee and the newspaper. Our family of 4 + a friend was perfect. The separation and separate bathrooms allow everyone a bit of peace and quiet with their own private deck. We loved the Chinquapin Environment. We used the tennis court on the lake, swam all around the beach and pier and used the pool and sauna. Contact with the owner was exceptional, prompt and answered all our questions.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at this beautiful home in the gorgeous Chinquapin Community! The view of the lake from the decks was outstanding and very peaceful! The house was the perfect size for our family of 4 + our two sets of parents!

Gorgeous Lake Front Condo

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely fabulous time at this beautiful Lake Front Condo. Marion was a terrific host, attending to our every need. The location of the unit overlooks sparkling Lake Tahoe, with spectacular views of the lake and pretty boats from the three levels of the house. The rooms are spacious, filled with light, and tastefully decorated. Each morning we watched the sun peek it's rosey head from behind the mountains across the placid, azure lake. Simply breathtaking. The upgraded kitchen and bathrooms are lovely, with plenty of counter space in each room. The home is very clean and well attended. The beds are comfy, with high thread count linens, and Marion provides little extras, like luxurious throws to keep you warm in every room. There are plenty of fluffy towels, and great water pressure in the tub and showers. Plenty of hot water too. The kitchen is well stocked, with all of the amenities you need. The decks are really lovely, and we ate most meals overlooking the peace and serenity of this lovely setting. Blue jays watched us from the pine trees that surround the grounds. The unit is very quiet, with only the sounds of the ripples of the gentle waves lapping at the shore. The grounds of the complex are gorgeous, and we took nature hikes every day around the property. Tahoe City is a short 5 minute drive with lots of eateries, bakeries, and a couple of markets. What more could you want? We highly recommend this wonderful home!
