House was exactly as described and sparkling clean. There were little touches all around the house that were really appreciated. We used the space for our team offsite for 11 people; the 8 full bed bunkbeds in the basement was perfect!
We are so happy that you enjoyed our home and your retreat. We are looking forward to hosting you in Tahoe in the future.

Awesome home - we will definitely return !!!!

We love this home and we’re very comfortable in it for an extended weekend. I highly recommend this for 2 to 3 families with children who are safe on stairs. The bunk room was a huge hit with the kids. Adults loved the spa, the cozy fireplaces and back deck. We would absolutely love to stay here again!
We are happy you enjoyed our home. Hope to see you in the future.

Fantastic cabin! Extremely spacious and comfortable with a fully equipped kitchen, beautiful decor, and a great family vibe. I stayed here with 9 other adults and we all said it was the nicest cabin we’ve stayed at in Tahoe so far. For reference, we’ve been up to Tahoe as a group at least 4-5 other times. Great location, super clean, view of the lake. You will not regret staying here!
We are happy you enjoyed your stay in Dollar Point. Thank you for the wonderful review!

Lovely home with loads of room for two families for a total of four adults and five teenagers. The downstairs bunk room was THE BEST! Well appointed kitchen and furnishings. We didn't use the hot tub since it was summer and the nights were warm. We would definitely return to this home again.
We are happy you enjoyed your stay. Looking forward to seeing you again!

The front room is grand. What a great vacation. Master bedroom upstairs was very nice and private. The downstairs bunk like beds were perfect for the kids! Used the Hot Tub every day. What a great place! Private beach for all of us to use plus a community pool that allowed our group to play Wiffle Ball, Tennis, and sit by the pool
We are so happy your family enjoyed your stay!

We really enjoyed this Dollar Point cabin. Everything was updated (no tube TV's), nice appliances and kitchen. The pantry was well stocked if you forgot any spices. We had 3 families stay at this cabin. Six adults in the 3 bedrooms and 5 boys in the downstairs room with 6 bunk beds. There was plenty of space. It was a great location for skiing an to just hang-out. We plan to rent this cabin next year!

Very nice house.

Our family had a very good time and enjoyed using this house.<br/>Only problem was a visit from a large brown bear one night keeping some of us up most of the night. Trash cabinet did not keep the bear from getting into the trash and it made a lot of noise and quite a mess.

This is a great home that has been beautifully remodeled. Highly recommend. In addition, there was a minor issue with the front steps when we arrived and the owner made a very reasonable accommodation for our trouble. Great people to do business with. We will be back next year!

We had an amazing stay albeit a short one at the Lakeview lodge over the memorial day weekend. Beginning with the booking experience upto our checkout everything was good.This is a remodeled property and looks new.There is lot of space inside the property as well as on the Deck to take in the surrounding. The Bunk beds are especially fun for kids.All in all it was a memorable experience.
