Overview

Northstar House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 10

Located less than a mile from the lifts on Oxen Run Road, Cabin Essence is a stylish, woodsy and well-appointed 3 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom home inside the Northstar California Resort. The main living area features an open floor plan with a big and cozy great room, cathedral ceilings, river-rock wood-burning fireplace, and new slate floors throughout the upper level. Floor-to-ceiling glass windows with forest views open out onto a huge deck with outdoor seating and gas+charcoal BBQ.

Other amenities include a large flat screen TV, a great DVD library and player, and modern tech including Wii, stereo with Squeezebox digital music system and wired speakers throughout house, plus cable in all rooms with HBO, Showtime, and Cinemax. The house is surrounded by peaceful forest on all sides and feels secluded within the wooded, open Northstar neighborhood.

The large dining room table seats 8, and the kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need, including microwave, dishwasher, toaster oven, and coffee maker. The master bedroom has a king size bed and en suite bath with shower and a small private deck opening to the woods behind the house. There is also a guest half bathroom on the upper floor near the great room. The lower level of the home has two additional bedrooms - one with a king size bed and TV and the other with two twin-over-full bunk beds to sleep 6, with its own TV and DVD player. Also on the lower level is a laundry room with washer/dryer and iron and ironing board. Lots of recent remodeling and new furnishings including a new heating system and central air conditioning.

Cabin Essence is located snuggly inside the serene woods of the Northstar resort, less than a mile from the Village at Northstar and the world-class Northstar California ski area, part of the Vail Resorts/EpicMix family. The rental comes with all the amazing perks that Northstar has to offer, including the free shuttle service that will pick you up at the house and take you anywhere in the resort you want to go. Awesome for boarders and skiers - no parking to deal with and just minutes from the lifts. Also included are guest access cards for the Northstar Property Owners Association Recreation Center a huge compound with a year round gym with pool, three hot tubs and sauna, picnic areas and boche courts, pool tables and arcades, and a great deal on massages; just $2 per person entry fee with guest cards, up to 16 guests. In summer there's a world class golf course and tons of tennis courts if that's your thing, and the best mountain biking, on and off the mountain, that Tahoe has to offer. The Village at Northstar offers ice skating in winter and roller skating in summer with outdoor couch seating and fire pits, plus a great variety of shops, tasty restaurants and bars, as well as a movie theater.

Beyond Northstar, Lake Tahoe and the North Lake casinos are just 6 miles down the road, or historic Truckee with its diverse restaurants and bars is 10 minutes away. Reno and its myriad temptations are just 20 minutes farther on, or head down around the lake to South Lake Tahoe's many attractions and resorts. And if you need even more skiing and boarding variety, Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, Diamond Peak and several other resorts are less than 20 miles away.

'Light the lamp and fire mellow,

Cabin essence timely hello,

Welcomes the time for a change.'

About Kevin Arnold

We're a family with kids from the Bay Area, excited about our new Tahoe home and sharing it with friends and possibly you!

Kevin Arnold purchased this house in 2012

Why Kevin Arnold chose Northstar

Northstar's the best! We've been coming for years and love it, the mountain is huge and between it, the Village, and and Rec Center there's something for everyone. We looked a long time in the area and finally found the perfect house for us: spacious and cozy, rustic yet modern, in a serene and peaceful forest setting.

What makes this house unique

Once you arrive and settle in everything the area has to offer is at your doorstep. You can leave your car parked and explore all of Northstar with the free shuttle service just a phone call away.

Perfect getaway house for family or friends

  • 5 of 5

House was comfortable, well-outfitted and had the feel that it was actually loved and used by its owner. Worked great for our group of 2 families (including 4 kids) and the entire rental process from start to finish was easy and exactly as advertised.

Northstar Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Cabin Essence. The owners were easy to work with and made sure we arrived and were able to get into the house the night we arrived.

The Cabin was clean, inviting and very comfortable for our entire family. We especially liked the open great room which was perfect for spending time with the whole group. We used the Wii, netflix and the entertainment center. We enjoyed the surround sound system. The owners provide instructions for the entertainment center which we appreciated greatly. I could imagine in Summer the large patio which is off the great room would be a wonderful place to relax as well.

The rooms were nicely decorated and the beds were very comfortable. The Northstar village is lovely and is only a short Free shuttle ride away. We would stay again.

Great for families or groups

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely fabulous time during our stay. The property was everything we expected and more. Beautiful home in an amazing setting. The location cannot be better, tucked away on a quiet cul-de-sac, but with the convenience of the Northstar shuttle at your fingertips. Plenty of room for 2 families or a group. Great open floor plan and huge deck makes it easy to hang out and have a good time (helped by the impressive entertainment system). Would absolutely recommend to others in future.

Ideal Ski/Tahoe Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Perfect house for enjoying Northstar and surrounding Tahoe attractions. My family of 4 (2 kids) and another family of 5 (3 kids) stayed there together very comfortably. Very clean and comfy, updated and convenient, with ideal open kitchen/dining/living areas for hanging out as a group. Great large deck off living/dining area. Free Northstar shuttle comes within minutes of calling to take you to the village. Great TV and entertainment system. No doubt we'll use it again.
