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

We've had over 200 inches of snow this month. Tahoe is now 277% above average precipitation for the month of March. And it's still snowing! Awesome conditions for spring skiing.

The Eagles Nest is an upscale, professionally decorated Big Springs home with 4 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms and a private outdoor hot tub (brand new May 2017). 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 brand new (installed May 2017) hot tub—which seats 4 adults—and barbecue using the huge stainless steel Weber gas grill.

Bedrooms each have their own private bathroom en suite and feature European goose down pillows, top quality mattresses, high thread count bedding, bathrobes and Turkish cotton towels to make you comfortable (in case you are allergic to down pillows, we also have 2 pairs of hypoallergenic non-down pillows in closets). 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. 3 bathrooms have hair dryers.

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.

On Sundays January through May, we can usually allow 8pm checkout, allowing you to complete your day of skiing and refresh before departing (please ask for a late check out when you check in). Wrap up your day of fun, shower and refresh, and drive back after some of the traffic has eased!

Each visit must include a single, complete weekend (the Friday and Saturday nights must be back to back) unless you want to visit only for weeknights. For example, staying Thursday - Monday or Friday - Thursday are permitted; staying Saturday - Saturday is not permitted. Weekly rates assume a single, complete weekend (the Friday and Saturday nights must be back to back) plus 5 weeknights.

If you are booking more than 6 months in advance, we can accept a 25% deposit at time of booking with 75% due 6 months prior to check in. Contact the owner if you would like to request these payment terms.

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 Truckee

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.

                                                        Nicolle B.Reno, NV

                                                        Staying at the eagles nest was so great!! Right when you walk in you feel like you are home for the weekend! It has everything you would need or want! So very spacious and placed between the trees it feels like no one is around for miles. We took an afternoon hike around the neighborhood and when we got home we started a cozy fire! Definitely recommend this place! We would love to rent it for a holiday next year. Also the owners are so very great and easy to work with and also have a manager that is a call away if you should need anything!

                                                        Thanks Eagles Nest!

                                                        FANTASTIC HOUSE

                                                        Steve H.

                                                        What an awesome House. We were there for spring break and could not of had a better time. We had 2 families with a total of 6 kids and never felt cramped. This house is as advertised, we will definitely come back again.

                                                        Wonderful house for a 12 women annual get together

                                                        Ralph E.

                                                        The kitchen was really big so many of us could work together with lots of room. It was well equipped and with a little searching, we found everything we needed. The huge dinning room table made dinner meals a fun social gathering. The living room is also spacious.

                                                        The shuttle service to the village was fabulously handy and we used it a lot. We never had to move our cars.

                                                        The bathrooms were large with good showers. We loved the hot tub.

                                                        The bunk beds were comfy and large.

                                                        The only slight inconvenience was that while the hide-a-bed was in use at night, it was hard to get to the bathroom from the bunk bed rooms where 3 of us older women were sleeping. Is it possible it could be moved to the little alcove next to the pool table and used to sleep two more people there at night? The half bathroom next to it is very convenient.

                                                        This house really worked well for our big group.

                                                        Perfect for the family

                                                        We were 6 adults & 5 young kids - this house was perfect - the room with 3 bunk beds was perfect for all the kids & each family got their own private bedroom with en suite bathroom. The dining room table was big enough for all of us & the kitchen was perfect for cooking family meals. The hot tub & pool table & play areas were a huge bonus. The shuttle to the village was fast/easy. We would definitely return.

                                                        Perfect, will definitely be renting again

                                                        We've been renting properties for years in Mammoth, Park City and Tahoe and this was by far the best rental we've ever had. The home is luxurious, extremely well-appointed, and best of all, everything worked, which is quite rare! We will absolutely be staying at Eagle's Nest again.
