About Birch Entriken

I am an airline pilot, married, with two small children, and one large dog.

Birch Entriken purchased this house in 1979

Why Birch Entriken chose Northstar

This home has been in my family since it was built in 1979. I was our primary residence for many years until 2010, when we moved to Reno. We weren't ready to give up the pine trees and the lifestyle, so we decided to try renting it out so that we could continue to enjoy the property when it was not rented.

What makes this house unique

You get all the amenities of Northstar with the convenience of Truckee and the North Shore of Lake Tahoe just minutes away. The outdoor activities are virtually unlimited year round.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wow! What can we say that you don't already know. Everything, I mean everything was perfect! This is not a rental, but a lovely, lovely home that reflected all the personal touches from a dear friend or favorite family member. All the special, homey touches provided with pride and care. From our family to yours, thank you for a wonderful time, all the amenities, and the memories that will last a lifetime! This home is sincerely blessed! Again, thank you for your graciousness.

Wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5

This home exceeded our expectations! It was beautiful, easily accessible, close to the village, and fully stocked with everything we needed to prepare Thanksgiving dinner and celebrate our daughters 7th birthday. As everyone said the pictures don't do it justice. My only regret is we didn't stay longer. Hopefully we will be back.

This is a true home! So comfortable, extremely well appointed and great for families. Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

Having never used VRBO we did wonder if the photos match what you truly receive. In the case of this beautiful home (as others have said) the photos don't do it justice! Us ladies in the group walked in the door, gasped, hugged and jumped up and down like crazy women! We were in heaven as far as a winter retreat went. Beautiful kitchen, everything you need to whip up..anything! The owners go above and beyond what any resort, condo or holiday complex will ever provide for you for the same money. The shuttle (true to what we were told) took 5 mins from the phone call for pick-up to arriving at our door. It was so convenient. The rec centre and 'privilege' passes you receive to get in there are a godsend at the end of a day on the slopes. The pool and spa are a must for tired muscles. Our whole experience in Northstar and Truckee was made so much better by the accommodation. The beds are WONDERFUL! The extras provided, the little touches, the decor, the location, convenience, the quietness of the neighbourhood, all just made our holiday so special. We were a group of 5 adults and could spread out but there is room for more! The media room upstairs would be a perfect teenagers or kids retreat, leaving the adults to enjoy the house to themselves. Fantastic place, loved it to bits and cannot think of one complaint really...perfect holiday! Want to revisit in summer perhaps?

Can't wait to go back!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a fabulous time during our week stay in this beautiful mountain home. We thought that it was even nicer than the photos. The home is equipped with everything you need or would want. We had our one year old granddaughter with us and there was a high chair, portable crib, gates and even covers for the electrical outlets. Unbelievable! We ate most of our meals in and the kitchen and gas barbecue made cooking a joy. The kitchen is spacious, appliances are easy to use and plenty of cooking utensils. Our favorite part about the house is it's beautiful deck. We ate all our meals out there and spent a lot of time just relaxing and enjoying that wonderful Lake Tahoe smell. You can't beat the Northstar recreation area. Great pools, fitness center, tennis courts and playground. Birch is a great guy. We had a little mix up with our dates, which was our fault and he was very accommodating. Thank you Birch for sharing your beautiful home and for the bottle of wine. We will definitely be back.

Perfect Northstar getaway

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed in other VRBO's at Northstar. This one is our favorite. Fantastic kitchen, clean and well organized. Upstairs media room a hit with the young ones.

Good house

  • 5 of 5

Furnishings are new...much better than a lot of the older homes in Northstar. Kitchen filled with everything you need, and open set up is great for group dining. Home was very clean. Welcome bottle of wine was a great touch. The guest book was the best, most comprehensive, and clear guest books I've ever seen in a rental. Home is totally wired with internet, DVD player, Pandora, and Roku. Home is also very well set up for infants and toddlers (high chair, stair gates, pack and play). Shuttle taking you to the village conveniently comes directly to your door. All in all, definitely a home that I would go back to.
