We are Hank and Pat Verissimo. We have been married for 57 years and have a large family of 4 children, 13 grandchildren, and 7 great/grandchildren. We chose Northstar to live because we love to ski and it has been a place with many memories of friends and family.

The Owner purchased this house in 1990

After renting homes at Northstar for 15 years we decided to design and build a home especially suited for our large family.

Our home lets us ski in a world class resort. We enjoy hiking, biking and the friendly people At Northstar. It is a little piece of heaven.

COLFAX HIGH SCHOOL SNOWBOARD TEAM

I am a fire captain and a snowboard coach. We had state championships held at North Star this year. I booked this house for 6 students and my wife and I. We enjoyed how clean the place was and how big the house is. The house accommodated enough sleeping and fun activities. I would highly recommend this house.

CLEAN HOME WITH EVERYTHING IN THE PERFECT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
We had a group of 12 consisting of 3 families each with 2 kids ages 7 and 9. This home was perfect! In the big bedrooms upstairs, the kids slept on their camping mats and sleeping bags and the 3rd family had the 2 rooms downstairs, everyone was comfortable.

The home is well-maintained and very clean, it's clearly a place the owners love as their own and not just stock as a rental. The kitchen is large and stocked with innumerable dishes and cookware. There is lots of entertainment, both the ping pong and pool tables are top quality and there were other things throughout the house like backgammon, checkers, stuffed animals, etc.

We really loved the location next to the open space reserve where some of us hiked or jogged, and the value of being on the Northstar resort bus line can't be overstated. Despite the lack of snow, as beginner and intermediate skiers we still had a great time skiing on the mountain thanks to the runs where they were making snow. Pat and Hank were wonderful hosts and made us feel very welcome. We're fortunate to have stayed in their home to enjoy a great time in Tahoe with friends.

GREAT PLACE FOR FAMILY FUN!

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from staying in this beautiful, well designed and well appointed 'cottage' in the woods at Northstar. This cabin ideally accommodated us, our children, our grandchildren in comfort and style! Each had our own bed, and access to 4 full baths and 1 more commode, just in case. It was great! And the kitchen is fabulous. Made me want to cook. Down side is the hot tub is in the rec center which is easily accessible via the shuttle, but one needs to dress for shuttle ride there and back. Plus, the owner's passes apply only to the owners. The rec center charged $2.00/ea since we were not Verissimo's. We really enjoyed our time in this unit and would definitely return whenever in the Northstar region.

CLEAN AND WELL EQUIPED

  • 5 of 5
The house was truly a home. It was impecably clean and very well equipped. It was very spacious and open. I must say that the master bed was the most comfortable bed I've slept on in years! Pat and Hank were most accomodating and attentive.

224 BASQUE, NORTHSTAR, TRUCKEE, CA.

  • 5 of 5
This home made the perfect Christmas celebration for our family. Each family had their own bedroom and bath. The home was clean, neat, and well appointed. The shuttle from the home to the Village at Northstar was very convenient. We would highly recommend this home to anyone considering a stay at Northstar. The owners were wonderful and answered all are questions regarding the rental and returned our damage deposit immediately.
We had a great Christmas in this beautiful home.

OUR FAMILY STAY AT NORTHSTAR

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at the home of Pat and Hank in Northstar was wonderful. Just the perfect home for a large family of varied ages to gather! The amenities provided by our hosts were many and very thoughtful. It was really so easy to just move in and begin enjoying our time in beautiful Northstar right away. All the bedrooms were comfortable and private, and the recreation area had something for everyone, including any game one could think of! The kitchen was appointed very well, and the large deck was great for our outdoor gatherings. To top it off, both Pat and Hank were very gracious hosts.
