About Vince Liotta

We provide excellent customer service and we are very precise and detailed in our process of taking reservations, collecting payments, providing confirmations, emailing information, directions, and the door code, returning damage deposits, and quickly solving problems if they occur during a stay. We are always easy to reach both by phone and by email. We want your vacation to be very enjoyable and a time you will remember for a long time.

Vince Liotta purchased this house in 1984

Why Vince Liotta chose Lake Tahoe North Shore

We honeymooned in a mountain home in the Sierras, and wanted to keep that feeling alive. Every year we rented homes until we decided to build our own in a manner perfect for vacationers. We wanted plenty of bathrooms and we wanted the bathrooms to be able to accommodate people at the sinks while other are in the toilet/shower area. We wanted a large counter top for serving food in the kitchen/dining area with bar stools and a large eating area. We wanted a TV area with comfortable seating for many and the ability to watch TV from the kitchen/dining room. We wanted fast wireless internet throughout, an area where kids can play games away from the adults if they desired. We wanted very comfortable beds, two master bedrooms, a bedroom with a fireplace, a big garage, and parking area in the driveway for several vehicles. We wanted large decks for outdoor living with views of mountains and forestry. We chose this location and built this home to fulfill all these wants and more.

What makes this house unique

In the Spring, Summer and Fall we love sitting on the large deck in the back with the large pine trees, views of the forested mountain, and spectacular sunsets. We love the Pine ceilings and looking at the trees through the windows. We also love that our place is in a mountain wonderland with great hiking trails right out the back and very few automobiles and people; and yet is is only a few short miles from swimming/water sports, golf, tennis, and shopping.

In the Winter we love that we can xcountry ski right out of our garage onto Tahoe Donner's great trail system and we can walk just one mile to the Tahoe Donner downhill ski area that is inexpensive and great for beginners. We also love that we can drive only 20 minutes to any of the big four ski areas: North Star, Squaw, Alpine, and Sugar Bowl. We also love the cozy gas fireplaces that provide lots of heat, are thermostatically controlled, and yet look like wood burning fireplaces.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great space for our family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin had everything we wanted and needed for 3 families of 4 to enjoy our time in the snow! Everything was as expected and in good working order. Very clean and well maintained property. We like to cook and found the kitchen had everything we needed. The owners were helpful with questions we had and really knew how to set the place up for max comfort and enjoyment! With 6 kids in our group, we loved having 2 living rooms. The grown ups could hang out and chat upstairs while the kiddos watched a movie after skiing downstairs. There were the perfect amount of towels, plenty of hot water for all of us, nicer linens, just a very comfortable and enjoyable stay!!! An overall excellent experience for us!

Fantastic property for a group gathering.

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 8 stayed at the property for the weekend of April 28-30 to get in some spring skiing and riding at Squaw/Alpine. The house was in excellent condition upon arrival. The kitchen is very well equipped for preparing meals, and the common area provided an ideal space to eat and hang out in between skiing trips. We also appreciated the fact that there were 4 large bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, plenty of towels, and plenty of hot water for showers. Overall, we were comfortable and had everything we needed.

I also thought the location was great, as it was a short trip to ski resorts, as well as grocery stores and restaurants. I recommend this property to other users and will definitely consider this option for my next Tahoe trip.

Great place for family gathering

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in early April during one of the last snow storms of the year and it was great fun! Snow just outside any door. The house has a great configuration where the upstairs bedroom and downstairs area allow families of 4 or 5 to stay comfortably, not to mention the two bedrooms on the main level. We had smaller children and it worked really well.

We cooked a lot and found the kitchen to be well stocked and great for serving a large group, but also only about 10 minutes from downtown Truckee where we hit CoffeeBar, Burger Me and Jax on the Trax too.

Everything we needed and could ask for!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 3 families with children. The house gave us plenty of space and provided privacy. Well equipped kitchen, plenty of linens, ample hot water, and lots of room for all. Everything was easy to use and labeled with instruction - which was such a nice touch! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will be coming back next year! Thank you for a wonderful home and experience!

Cozy and lovely home very close to Tahoe-Donner slopes

  • 5 of 5

My family (with two young children) and I enjoyed 4 nights at this cozy mountain home. It is very bright, clean, has a well-stocked kitchen, and tons of space. We were there during a big winter storm that knocked out power but the gas fireplace kept us warm and there were flashlights and candles on hand. Moreover, Vince was great at communicating with us and offering help in managing some of the challenges that came with the unusually high snowfall and storm. We really appreciated the snow shovel in the garage and the sleds.

We were about 4 minutes from the ski slope lot and we used the rec passes to swim and soak in the hot tub. If there's a big snowstorm you'll want AWD and chains as this home is off the main road (though the owners do have the driveway plowed and the street is plowed, as well). I can tell this would be a great home in summer, too. I recommend this home!
