The kitchen is well equipped and opens to the dining area, which in turn opens to the family room...GREAT FOR ENTERTAINING! Flat driveway with garage. Skiers and boarders need only walk out to the street to be picked up and brought to the world renowned North Star Ski Resort. Don't ski or snowboard, no worries, the Village at Northstar has ice skating, great restaurants, and shopping for that retail therapy we all need.
Renters are invited to enjoy the clubhouse, which features Health Spa, swimming pools, hot tubs, exercise center and game room.
The charming town of Truckee is just a 10 minute drive, or venture 15 minutes in the opposite direction to see Beautiful Lake Tahoe, and enjoy gambling and shows at the casinos.

I am a mom with 4 children. I live in the Bay Area, but my close friend lives in Truckee and helps me to keep our Tahoe getaway maintained.
Owner purchased this House in 2006
Why Owner chose Truckee
My family and I have always loved Lake Tahoe. We bought this home a few years back because we have found that our best memories are here in Northstar.
What makes this House unique
I love the tranquility of our home, while my kids are occupied day and night. They are always having fun whether it is winter sports or summer play...we cannot get enough!

Great trip to Tahoe
This was a perfect home for families to get together.
Everything was made available, it was clean, and everything was really nice.
We loved the back deck up against the forest and creek; perfect for little kids to go play outside without the parents constantly thinking they're about to fall off of one of those Tahoe decks on stilts!
Big house, rustic, close to Northstar, helpful manager
This is a nice big house with a responsive local manager. It worked great for two families (three adults and four kids). It definitely feels "lived in." Part of that may be because we came at a busy time of year when renters were leaving and arriving on the same day where the cleaning crew had little time to prepare, but there was loads of sand and grit in the bathroom rugs, with soap scum and mold in downstairs bathroom shower. The house has what seems to be old shag carpets. It's fine for a ski cabin, and with a nice gas fireplace, but don't expect modern. Also, the master bedroom and room with two beds upstairs are much nicer than the downstairs rooms with a king and a queen. It's fine, just don't expect them to be comparable.
Having the garage is great to allow cars to unfreeze.
Finally, the manager Justin is very responsive and helpful. That is is huge benefit. We didn't need much, but if there was a problem or question, you can expect that he would be on top of it and fix it quickly.
Great location and really nice home!!!
This is a wonderful, cozy house, great for our two families. Very short shuttle ride to Northstar village. Justin was very responsive and flexible. He made sure the house was clean when we needed to arrive a day earlier than our reservation (fortunately the house was free) to beat the bad weather. I would stay here again for sure.
Cozy and wonderful
This a very warm and welcoming home full of wood everywhere. Large dining table, complete kitchen, wonderful gas fireplace, comfortable living room. Our family had a wonderful time and thank the owners for making their beautiful and comfortable home available. The house manager, Justin, was most serviceable. Internet was slow and he came out to fix it.
Lovely getaway rental -
We had a lovely stay at this Northstar rental and would certainly rent it again. The location is great - the view to the rear is beautiful and private, and Beaver Pond is nice and close-in to the village, unlike other places we've stayed (way out there on Basque, etc.). The house was very clean and totally ready for us. We were a family of 4, but had two dinners with 10 of us, and there was more than enough room for us all to be comfortable for long evenings of chatter, dinner and games. Owner/rep was very responsive with answers to of-the-moment queries. Two minor problems, one mentioned by a previous reviewer: First, the wifi to this house is indeed spotty. It was fine for listening to music, but we could never stream a movie. Second, it is obviously impossible to anticipate every renter's needs in the kitchen, and keeping a rental kitchen reliably stocked with the most basic basics must be a thankless task. However, this kitchen was missing measuring cups, measuring spoons and any sort of rubber spatula. Sometimes, you just want to make a batch of cookies! I went out and bought (and left at the rental) measuring cups, and did without the rest. Perhaps reviewing a last-minute checklist of "the most basic basics" would be a good practice going forward, before each new renter comes in? Anyway, it was a great stay for us and we look forward to next time.
