About Janice DUTRA

I am now retired but I fell in love with Northstar when my children were young. I was a single mom in the late 70's just learning to ski and this was a wonderful family oriented resort where I felt comfortable and safe with my children. Since that time, all my grandchildren have learned to ski or board here. We have made wonderful memories. I first purchased a studio condo, then a 3 bedroom condo and finally this home which I have extensively upgraded. It feels like our little mountain lodge which we all love. Northstar has changed over the years, but is still family oriented with great summer activities and the best snow grooming in Tahoe. It has become a world class mountain resort for all seasons.

Janice DUTRA purchased this house in 1999

Why Janice DUTRA chose Lake Tahoe North Shore

This is where my family enjoyed staying when we would visit Tahoe. Winder gets all the attention but Summer is wonderful at Northstar is the kept secret. It is the most family friendly resort we have been too with easy access to the mountain for skiing, mountain biking, hiking, great restaurants and shops. There is something for everyone. We literally park our car and take the shuttles everywhere we go.

What makes this house unique

We enjoy the quiet location. Our property is located on Beaver Pond, which is a loop with only a dozen or so luxury homes with a lot of green space between them. There is very little traffic and we enjoy the easy access in the summer to a walking trail that takes us on a 5 minute walk to the Village.

Wonderful house. Great open layout with big windows and lots of light. Very comfortable. Perfect for 2 couples plus kids, do-able with 3 couples (3rd queen bed is in open loft area). Kitchen is very well stocked with cookware. Easy shuttle to the village/lifts. Owner is very helpful and responsive. Would love to go back again!

Great place for families!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay with our friends at this property. Everything was very clean, well-stocked and accessible. The owner was very easy to work with, and made sure that we had what we needed. The shuttle to Northstar was terrific- it was very prompt and the 3 minute ride made it so easy to get there with kids and gear! We didn't try any area restaurants, but the kitchen was well-stocked so we were able to cook for our families the entire weekend. We highly recommend this property, and would stay there again.

Great winter stay!

  • 5 of 5

The owner was a pleasure to work with to set up our stay at the property. As well, she maintained contact/was accessible to ensure that we were comfortable, settled in and had any questions answered with regard to our 4 night stay. My family of five had a great time at the house and skiing at Northstar (shuttle service was always prompt to pick up at the house/village), and the location and amenities of the house made for a fun and relaxing time (key was the yard for our young children to play outside when not skiing - someone previously had build an igloo that could fit at least 6 kids inside!). We will certainly remain in contact with the owner for our future stays at Northstar resort!
