Overview

About the property

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 (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.

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!

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 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.

Thank you, it was great!

  • 4 of 5

Thank you for a wonderful week, your house is lovely! We had a large group and got much use out of the pool table and hot tub, they were great and appeared new and well maintained. The house is full of appliances and gadgets that seem fun to use but some may be a bit advanced without lessons! There is a book that explains everything in the house but we were still unable to work the very professional espresso machine and the dryer kept turning itself off mid cycle. Other than these very minor details we had a fabulous week and loved the access to the Northstar facilities. Thank you, we'd love to see it in the winter!

Amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Eagle's Nest with our family for the forth of July. This property is in a very upscale area of Northstar with large beautiful homes. This home is extremely well maintained,, decorated and appointed. The owners spared no expense. Everyone especially enjoyed playing pool, BBQs, and the swimming pool complex.. We highly reccomend this property for a great time with family and friends!

This was a beautiful, fully outfitted home. We were very happy there.

  • 5 of 5

We did a family reunion for my wife's birthday at Eagles Nest. We had owned a home at Northstar for nearly thirty years, starting when our oldest was a baby, and wanted to relive those great memories. This house was perfect for three couples and four young children, ages 3 to 9.

It was an easy walk from the house to the Northstar village and mountain hiking trails, so loved the location. For the big birthday dinner, we took the gondola to the Ritz-Carlton at mid-mountain, which was a great way to start the evening. I've got to give kuddos to the staff at Manzanita Restaurant at the Ritz. Great food, and the staff was over-the-top in making the family dinner at a high-end restaurant a wonderful experience.

The house was large, well-designed, beautifully furnished, and beautifully outfitted with kitchen-ware, hot tub, pool table, kids toys. We look forward to staying at Eagles Nest in the future.

Wonderful holiday weekend

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay! It's perfect for three families with younger children. The weather was great and we were able to use the NPOA facilities one day -- which was a wonderful perk! We enjoyed cooking in the kitchen (it's huge!) and found everything we needed. We'll definitely be back.

Fabulous ski home with lots of luxury!

  • 5 of 5

The hosts of this property thought of everything! The house is spacious, well-appointed and The layout provides lots of separation areas for privacy when traveling with other couples. Kids particularly loved the hot tub and the pool table as well as all the board and card games. Kitchen had everything we needed. It is located in a very quiet area of Northstar. It was late April but Squaw and Alpine were fantastic skiing....Thank you for a great week in Tahoe!
