About Chris Bowles or Antonia Doherty-Bowles

Our names are Chris and Antonia and we have two young boys named Benny and Sammy. We live in Sacramento but originally hail from England and we love beautiful California, Tahoe in particular.

Chris is an eco-engineer specializing in hydrology and Antonia a high school math teacher.

Chris Bowles or Antonia Doherty-Bowles purchased this house in 2013

Why Chris Bowles or Antonia Doherty-Bowles chose Lake Tahoe North Shore

Blessed with magnificent natural beauty and located in one of the most popular and desirable locations in the Western United States, Lake Tahoe and Truckee are considered the jewel of California. In the Truckee area you are able to enjoy world-famous beaches, hiking, biking trails, watersports, skiing, rafting, dining, shopping, and more! With so many activities to choose from, there is something to keep everyone in your group entertained! We hope that you will be able to experience our home, love it like we do and agree that it's the hidden jewel of the Sierras.

What makes this house unique

We've only recently purchased our property and from the moment we saw it, we fell in love. The stunning vistas and beautiful home make it a wonderful place to stay. We feel very lucky to be able to stay in such a special place - we hope you do too.

Wonderful house especially to enjoy reunions with family and friends!

  • 4 of 5

This super spacious and welcoming home, with fantastic views, is really ideal for reunions with family/children, and close friends-- who can intimately hang out on the deck together, sit around the dining room table in the open living room/kitchen, prepare meals together and sit at the breakfast counter, lounge together on multiple couches and watch big-screen TV; then downstairs for pool, ping-pong, or more screen time! It was really clean, which is my "must", and well-stocked with towels, linens, and amenities. The only drawback from our perspective were the small bedrooms and bunkroom options, which is in sharp contrast to the spacious master bedroom, but this would not be a problem at all for young adults or kids-- it would be less ideal for multiple couples. The house's location was great, 5minute drive to historic Truckee which is a treat, and close to highways. Overall we loved it and would certainly return as a family!

Classy Mountain Get Away

  • 5 of 5

The property is well maintained and tastefully decorated. The owners have gone out of their way to detail everything about how everything operates/should be maintained. The owners are very friendly and courteous. The welcome basket with wine, tea, biscuits and coffee was a thoughtful and heartwarming touch. Great amenities and entertainments for the whole family round out a brilliant vacation spot. Thank you so much for opening up your home to myself and my family.

Wonderful, family friendly home!

  • 5 of 5

We had such an amazing time in the Donner lake/truckee area. We spent a lot of time in the house because there were so many activities for the the kids and so many different areas in the house that it never felt crowded. The hosts were helpful and accommodating and there was a nice gift basket when we arrived. The kitchen was well equipped, lots of great movies available to watch, and a fire pit for s'mores at the end of the day. Thank you for sharing your home with us!!

5 Star North Tahoe Gem

  • 5 of 5

When we walked in the house, there was a welcome basket with wine, coffee and crackers- how thoughtful and generous! Next to the basket were the instructions on how to operate everything in the house, along with restaurant ideas. The house was perfectly clean and smelled fresh everywhere. The rooms on the 3 different levels worked so well for our two families (11 people) to spread out and have privacy. The sheets and blankets were fresh and kept us warm during the snowy nights, the towels in the bathrooms were nice and thick and plentifully stocked. The kitchen is stocked with all the appliances and cookware needed. The dishes were lovely in design pattern! The quality of the home is 5 star and has all the nice little touches of air fresheners, nice soaps, nice decorations, and everything you need. The hot tub was used plenty of times, and the billiards table, the DVD's, and toys for the kids to play with were also enjoyed. The family room was spacious and easy for us to gather to watch movies on the TV or just hang out and read. The ski resorts of Tahoe Donner, Donner Ski ranch and Sugar Bowl were all easy 15 minute drives from the house. The house is easy access to the freeway and close to restaurants and shopping at Safeway. It was ideal for us- thank you so much!

Awesome house for Lake Tahoe getaway!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of eight adults and one baby just returned from Chris and Antonia's lovely Truckee home, and we already can't wait to return!!! We drove from SF for a quick ski weekend at Northstar, but we all wished that we could've stayed for the whole week. The house is very close to the cute little town of Truckee, lots of amenities there (shops, restaurants, ski rentals) plus a mile or less to Safeway for groceries. It was a 10-15 min drive to Northstar and very close to Donner Lake. Over the weekend, the area received a foot of snow, but the road and driveway were amazingly kept relatively snow-free. There was room for 4 vehicles in the garage+driveway. Once we arrived, we were greeted with a lovely gift basket of wine, shortbread, tea and coffee - such a nice touch! The house was huge and so clean and well-appointed. You enter into a mud room for leaving your boots, then down one short flight to the living room with pull-out sofa, TV, adjoining dining room and open kitchen w several bar stools. Nice high ceilings but also warm! Big deck off this area which will be nice in summer. Nothing lacking in the kitchen in terms of cooking supplies (there's even a bread maker!). There's a half-bath on this level too. Heading down a flight, two bedrooms (one queen/full, one queen/full + single bunked bed) and a full hallway bathroom with two sinks, plus a washer/dryer. The deck off one of the bedrooms has a big hot tub, perfect for a soak after skiing all day. Down one more level, you'll find a master suite with more deck space, big bathroom, and a second queen/full bedroom down the hall. But there's more!!! Down one more level (yes, 5 total floors!), there's a great game room with a full bathroom, pullout sofa, another TV, pool/ping pong table and a bar + stools. Our gang contained some very picky customers, but people couldn't stop raving about my house choice, they were so pleased. Needless to say, we hope to be back again soon!!! Antonia was also super quick to answer emails, and even allowed us to check out late on Sunday so that we could enjoy the slopes and shower before heading back to SF. Thanks again, Antonia and Chris!!!!
