The mountain is incredibly well groomed with vast amounts of tree skiing. Northstar's location is also sheltered from heavy winds and cold frequent at nearby resorts like Squaw and Heavenly.

We're the first owners of the residence and one of the founder members of the resort. We live nearby on Lake Tahoe with our two boys who both ski race.

Amanda Nguyen purchased this house in 2005

Why Amanda Nguyen chose Lake Tahoe North Shore

This residence provides the best in ski-in/ski-out for a family looking to enjoy the comfort and luxuries of Northstar without the noise and congestion of the Village.

What makes this house unique

The greatest luxury is being able to ski, enjoy a gourmet lunch at either the Ritz Carlton or Shaffer's Camp on the mountain, and ski back to a home that's quiet and spacious without ever getting in a car.

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 nights at this beautiful home over Spring break and enjoyed the last of the spring skiing. An email was sent with helpful information about the area, check-in, etc. The home was immaculate, and the photos don't do justice. The home is very spacious with comfortable beds and plenty of linens. We cooked every night in the well-stocked kitchen. Enjoyed s'mores at night by the fire pit. The location is perfect and we enjoyed the space that you don't get when staying in the village. My kids really enjoyed the Treehouse amenities... heated pool, basketball court, shuffleboard, etc. We recommend this home, and we will stay here again!

Nice property - Bad experience

  • 1 of 5

The property itself was very nice but the fact that we had several issues upon arrival and no communication from the owners make it very difficult to recommend the property.

First, I emailed the owners several times starting two weeks before we were to arrive and didn't receive a response. I also called and left a voice message but still didn't hear anything. I started to worry that there may be a problem.

We arrived as planned and found absolutely no welcome letter and absolutely no instructions whatsoever. It wasn't long before we realized we had no hot water, period. In addition, the large tv in the great room did not work and we did not have access to the pool and workout facility we were told we could use for the week.

After two days, the owners finally contacted us, by email, to tell us a repairman would be coming to check on the hot water and that they would work on getting an access key to us for the pool. As for the TV, they just told us they didn't like the cable company and that we would have to try to make due.

Three days into our vacation (with 8 adults and two small children) we finally had hot water. Four days in, we had an access card for the pool.

This was the most frustrating and disappointing experience we have ever had and we have rented many nice properties with VRBO/Home Away. Dealing with the condo issues and the non responsive owners overshadowed our family vacation.

I would highly endorse the Northstar Tahoe area but would never rent from the current owners. Very, very disappointing.

Vacation vehicle

  • 5 of 5

Large gracious amazingly outfitted home nicely accommodated our family's week vacation. From appliances to cooking tools the kitchen was outstanding. The locale at Northstar was peaceful but we could hike, spend time at the Lake, and golf easily as well as enjoy Truckee. Hot tub was a hit.

Highly recommended.

Trailside

  • 5 of 5

We all really enjoyed the property. It was great for the three different families we had there. The kids room was huge and perfect for all of our rugrats and the kids loved it. The "adult" rooms were well appointed with soft and comfortable beds and linens. The location was good near the ritz and the only drawback was due to the weather and lack of snow in the truckee area this year. No complaints at all

Great Home in Great location!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful home! Great for our large family to gather for a week. As beautiful as the pictures, no disappointments here at all. The bedrooms were large and well furnished as were the bathrooms and the beautiful kitchen. We so enjoyed the hot tub and the deck. Very nicely located to the village, golfing and 15 minutes to Lake Tahoe. Loved it!

Great summer home

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful long weekend here with another family. The home is beautiful. Easy to walk to the Ritz and take the free gondola down to the village. Grocery store is about 15 minutes away and the amenities of the home allowed us to cook several meals in the house as if we were at our own homes. I would absolutely stay here again during ski season. It was perfect.
