Truckee House Rental Photos and Description

A luxurious 4 bedroom, 4.5 bathroom custom home with 5-star finishes.

The Eagles Nest is an upscale, professionally decorated Big Springs home with 4 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms and a private outdoor hot tub. The Eagles Nest is ideal for a gathering of friends and family, with soaring cathedral ceilings throughout, a giant wood burning fireplace fashioned from huge stones, and light streaming in through abundant windows. You will be greeted by beautiful slate floors, original oil paintings and fine leather furniture in the common areas. Enjoy the silence and extreme comfort of hydronic radiant heating throughout plus free high speed wi-fi. If you're visiting in the Summer, you'll enjoy the central air conditioning, a very rare feature in this region.

The chef’s kitchen features granite countertops, a Viking 6-burner cooktop, stainless steel fridge, freezer, microwave oven, conventional oven and convection oven, dual sinks, Belgian waffle maker, slow cooker, hand mixer, blender, toaster, toaster oven and all the pots, pans and cooking utensils you could possibly need. 3 coffee makers help you get just what you want in the morning: Keurig maker, traditional Cuisinart coffee maker, and an espresso maker. The great room has a 42 inch plasma TV with DVD player, DirecTV, and theater sound. Elsewhere on the main floor, a billiards table is accompanied by a wet bar. An alcove has its own gas fireplace, a TV on which kids can watch DVDs and a laser printer/photo copier/fax machine. The dining room table seats 12 and the breakfast bar seats an additional 6. Upstairs is a common area with couch that folds into a very comfortable queen sized bed (no really, it's amazing and not your typical terrible sofa bed) and a 40 inch LCD TV that can be used for watching DVDs or playing video games (if you bring your own console). A laundry room offers high end, large capacity Kenmore washer and dryer. The garage has room for 2 cars, a 240V receptacle for your electric vehicle, and contains firewood you are free to use. Off the garage you’ll find the mudroom is perfect for storing coats, boots and the like. On the stone patio, enjoy the private hot tub—which seats 4 adults—and barbecue using the huge stainless steel Weber gas grill.

Bedrooms and stairways have luxurious carpet installed in late 2012. Bedrooms each have their own private bathroom en suite and feature top quality new mattresses, high thread count bedding, bathrobes and Turkish cotton towels to make you comfortable. The master suite features a king bed, gas fireplace, balcony, jetted spa tub and standing shower. The second bedroom features a queen bed and private bathroom. The third bedroom has a king bed and private bathroom. The fourth bedroom has 3 bunk beds (to sleep 6) plus a bathroom. The upstairs common area has a queen sized sleeper sofa that is remarkably comfortable and firm and 89 inches in length--not your usual flimsy, terrible fold out couch where your feet hang off the end.

Situated on half of an acre on a private cul-de-sac in the prestigious Big Springs neighborhood above the Village, Eagles Nest is a 10-minute walk (or a 1-minute drive) to the Timberline chair lift. The property features a grass backyard and natural forest and backs up to the Tompkins Memorial hiking trail. The Northstar shuttle service will pick up your group at the end of the driveway—just call and the shuttle usually arrives within minutes—and take you to the Village or recreation center for free. The rec center—available to guests for just $2 per visit—offers multiple swimming pools, a huge hot tub, a gym and, in the summer, tennis courts. The Northstar Village offers several great restaurants and bars, an ice-skating / roller-skating rink, a movie theater, a Starbucks and plenty of shopping. From The Eagles Nest, you may walk / hike down to the Village in less than 10 minutes on hiking paths and a natural stone stairway maintained by Northstar (though the path is not suitable for the frail or elderly nor when snow is on the ground).

If you do not bring a pet, we do not require a security deposit. Instead, we include a $59 insurance policy in every rental that covers $1,500 of property damage. If you do want to bring a pet, please request approval of the Owner when you inquire; bringing a pet necessitates a $2,000 refundable security deposit because the above-mentioned insurance only covers damage by people and does not cover damage by pets.

Enjoy 8pm checkout on Sundays January through May. Wrap up your day of fun, shower and refresh, and drive back after some of the traffic has eased!

About Jon Venverloh

We love gatherings of family and friends and chose this home because the layout of the common areas brings people together. At the same time, the bedrooms are quiet and private, and each has its own bathroom.

Jon Venverloh purchased this house in 2005

Why Jon Venverloh chose Lake Tahoe North Shore

This is a beautiful custom home built in 2002 to the highest standards. Big Springs homes are mostly 2nd and 3rd homes, so there is little traffic and it's extremely quiet. Take hikes right out the back door. In typical winters, it's even possible to ski in if you know the way!

What makes this house unique

The Eagles Nest is situated on about 1/2 of an acre with a very gentle slope towards the street. There is lots of space between homes in the Big Springs neighborhood. The driveway is easy to manage, unlike some of the properties in Tahoe.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Jon, we had a fabulous week at your Eagles Nest. Your home is absolutely beautiful and was perfect for our family. We were very impressed with the Northstar community, shuttles, village, etc. The fireworks on New years eve were an added bonus. We all went out to the end of your street and there they were, bursting beautifully right in front of us! This truly was a dream vacation for our family. Thank you for sharing your home.

Family Reunion in Tahoe

  • 5 of 5

We love this house! We gathered for a 3 generation family reunion of 12. It rained almost steadily during our entire 3 day stay. Although disappointed at first that we wouldn't be hiking as planned, we very soon felt fortunate to be staying in this beautiful, delightful home -- clean and comfortable and spacious, with a great floor plan. The house is cozy and cheerful with lots of light pouring in its many windows. We played games, enjoyed the pool table (a hit with everyone), while some enjoyed the outdoor jacuzzi despite the rain. There were little nooks for those who wanted to curl up with a book or use their electronics. The kitchen is stocked with all the cookware we could possibly need, and we were happy to be able to see and enjoy the different activities going on nearby while we prepared meals.

Jon, the owner, graciously answered my questions before I booked, including a description of the bed situation. I felt comfortable that the house would work for our large group.

And Justin, the property manager, responded kindly and quickly to a couple of minor issues that arose.

Thank you, Jon! It was a joy to stay in your home. We can't wait to return!

Wonderful reunion at Eagles Nest

  • 5 of 5

Ten family members spanning three generations met at the Eagles Nest for a sunny week in August 2016. There were beds enough for all, the pool table and hot tub were in near-constant use, and the well-stocked kitchen enabled all to participate in meal prep. The house was immaculate and ready for family enjoyment as promised and featured various nooks and quiet patios for respite. The owner was very responsive and helpful both before and after our stay.

One unanticipated advantage in early August was how quiet the North Shore area was. With hiking trails and child-friendly beaches in every direction, we found the absence of crowds to be delightful. The shuttle to the Northstar Village was a treat for the little ones yet the trek was an easy 10 minute hike. Convenience and comfort were the hallmarks of our wonderful stay at this handsome home. All of us hope to return including our east coast contingent.

Perfect vacation home for our large family

  • 5 of 5

We have rented many vacation homes for our family of three generations but this one has to be one of the best homes and locations. I spoke with Jon the homeowner and he was very friendly and helpful. The house is extremely well stocked with everything needed from spices to puzzles. The house has a very comfortable and useful floor plan. Our family enjoys cooking together and the kitchen is exceptionally well planned with several work areas. We loved the spacious and open area of the living room, game room and kitchen. The Northstar Village and the recreation center are both well maintained and have great amenities like coffee, meals, activities, rentals, shopping and recreation for everyone in the family. Remember to bring mosquito repellent, which is essential while in the woods or outside in the evening. Loved the shuttle!

Great House

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a week in this house. It was perfectly clean upon arrival and had everything we needed for our family and guests. The bunk room was great for the kids as was the hot tub. Highly recommended.
