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. Northstar is the perfect choice for luxury and family skiing. Squaw is just 30 minutes away for the more adventurous.

With a short gondola ride back up to mid-mountain from the Village, there is the Ritz Carlton and the main ski area with over 3,000 acres, 97 runs and 2,280 ft. Of vertical.

About Amanda Nguyen

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.

Stunning, Comfortable Mountain Home

  • 4 of 5

First off, our whole experience booking the property with HomeAway and our rental agent Amanda Nguyen was smooth and easy - from start to finish. The property lived up to its billing: very comfortable, extremely well appointed, bathrooms and bedrooms were spacious and stunning, kitchen and living area(s) top notch. You're literally a 3-5 min walk from the Ritz - take a left out the front door, then a right and you're almost there. And the same for the great health club - take a right and stroll down the hiking path for a couple of hundred yards; enjoy!

A couple of not so perfect items worth noting: the house has a stunning large deck off the living area but there's no outdoor furniture to sit and enjoy the space; not even a single chair. If you want to lounge you'll need to pull the dinning room chairs out; not the most comfortable. Ladies (per my wife) - the bathroom lighting above the sinks is horrible...I'm sure you know what this means. And lastly, you'll need to download the Sonos App to enable connectivity of your phone, tablet, etc. to the music system, a fact that's not stated in the house information. Hope this helps.

High quality, luxury accommodations. Well located, well-appointed

  • 5 of 5

Excellent property in Martis Camp. The kitchen and bathrooms are well-stocked, and someone has been thoughtful about what little things could optimize a vacationer's experience. Very fast wifi. Cook's kitchen. Great for families or adult couples.

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.

  • 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.

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
