Very nice place in a great location. Quiet street, well equipped and maintained house. Will rent it again.
The property is clean and big and nicely located. It is a bit dated and we couldn't figure out how to regulate the temperature but it was otherwise great
Great location, pet friendly makes this house the perfect selection for us. Having the sofa bed in the loft makes this a 4 bedroom sleeping arrangement.
We stayed the first weekend in April 2016. The house is in a great Northstar community with an open area in the back of the house for our 3 dogs to run around (both houses on either side were vacant). The house is very accommodating, with the stocked kitchen (some pantry items), bath soap, shampoo and conditioner in each bathroom as well as hair dryers and curling irons. We enjoyed a fire (firewood is provided) and played some family games in the living room. Their is also a family room on the second level. We also took advantage of the snow sleds and snow shoes that were provided.
The upstairs master bedroom has a private patio and a large jetted bath under a skylight. All the rooms where stocked with plenty of blankets and towels. I would recommend this house and hopefully will have an opportunity to stay there again.
We loved the house. There were 5 of us and 3 dogs, plenty of room for all of us. with two family rooms (one upstairs and one on main floor). Unfortunately there was no snow at the house at the time, so we had to drive to the Donner area to play in the snow (15 min). Property backed up to a an open area where the dogs could run around (two houses next us were vacant).
Kitchen was fully stocked with all the utensils and flatware needed, also some seasonings in the cupboard. All the rooms were nicely decorated and plenty of space. Bathrooms were immaculant and even stocked with shampoo and conditioner (some Body Lotion would have been nice). Three bathrooms and each had a hair drying and the master had a curling iron. I enjoyed the large jetted bath tub with sky light. We used the sleds that were in the garage as well as firewood that was provided. I would definitely recommend this house and will probably rent again.
We took our 3 children skiing at Northstar and stayed at Skidder's Lair in Truckee for 4 days. We were also able to take our dog, our breakfasts, 1-2 dinners, and snacks. We went skiing, sledding, hiking, and we used the Rec center for the pool and hot tubs. The house and the location were excellent and very user friendly. We would definitely stay here again when we return to this area!
