About Steven R Mitchell

Squaw-Gri-La was designed and build by Steve Mitchell an adventure travel cinematographer for PBS, Travel Channel, and NBC. The property and furnishings reflect an international flaire, from Africa to Thailand to Australia.

Steven R Mitchell purchased this lodge in 2006

Why Steven R Mitchell chose Lake Tahoe North Shore

This property is very unique in that is two houses connected at the hip. This allows large groups to settle in and still have the elbow room to disperse into intimate spaces. The two houses integrate seamlessly, but also provide noise and visual privacy. You have two kitchens - Three decks, two outdoor hot tubs and more.

What makes this lodge unique

Close to Both Truckee and Lake Tahoe: Squaw Valley USA has it's own recreation and night life. In winter, the avalanche control bombs summon you up early to enjoy a fresh dump of Tahoe Powder. The bustling energy of Tahoe's best ski resort is contrasted by the calm serenity of summertime....But the Village at Squaw is always hosting Music, Brewfests, and other events to keep it fun and interesting for all.

Ski Trip with 20 people

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 20 people stay for 3 nights in Feb for a ski trip. Steven is a great owner and very easy to work with. The house was in excellent condition and was very clean upon arrival. The pictures do not do the house justice - it exceeded my expectations. The house is also only about a mile from the parking lot at Squaw and that was huge! Very easy to get to the mountain.

The only negatives that I had with the place was the lack of towels and the lack of trash storage space. There is a Bear Box in the driveway for all of the trash but it is not very big at all. For a house of that size, you'd like more trash space.

All in all, it was a great experience and I would definitely rent Squawgrala again in the future!

Wonderful Home to spend our Thanksgiving Celebration with Family

  • 5 of 5

Just arriving home after spending Thanksgiving with my large family at "SquawGraLa" and reflecting on the wonderful experiences of the past few days. From the moment we opened the front door we felt the care and attention that Steve had taken to ensure that we would feel at home. As the kids left our sides to explore the house, we felt relief and excitement as we experienced the unique architecture and furnishings from around the globe. We enjoyed every moment together and to our surprise and delight, found a fully stocked kitchen with everything we needed to make our Thanksgiving feast. The configuration of the homes allowed us to spend quality time together, playing games, watching TV, ok football, reading a book and our favorite activity, relaxing in the hot tub(s) after a day of snow play. My most memorable experience was getting out of the car and being pummeled by snow balls from the kids in the hot tub above! Once we realized what was happening, we had the best snow ball fight of our lives! So many wonderful experiences. To anyone considering "SquawGraLa"..........don't hesitate. You will be delighted.

Great house, great location!

  • 5 of 5

We came here for an annual, 5-day ski trip and it was a big success. Not only is the house very close to the mountain, but it is also very spacious and enjoyable. There was plenty of room to hang out and beds for everybody and we even enjoyed the gameroom (pool table + foosball). Steve was a pleasure to work with and I recommend this property!
