About Bobbi Rae

We have a large family and needed a large home to accommodate everyone. We saw this home and fell in love.

Bobbi Rae purchased this chateau / country house in 2013

Why Bobbi Rae chose North Estates

We are very active and not only was this home beautiful, it is also right next to the lake, bike paths, hiking trails, National Forest and both ski resorts.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

The views of the lake, Eagle Preserve and National Forest are fantastic. You can watch both sunrises and sunsets and really enjoy being in the mountains.

We had a blast, best rental house yet, was the weekend Mantra

  • 5 of 5

Was so much fun. There was lots to do and room for people to spread out. No one felt cramped. Was very clean and well furnished. Everyone is talking about renting this house again in the summer. Thank you for a great family trip.

Perfect Ski House for Family

  • 5 of 5

From the minute we walked into the house the fun began. The beautiful pool table, the super fun arcade game, the foosball table and the downstairs bar were like a magnet for the kids and the adults alike. The house was spotlessly cleaned and fresh. We were met at the door by a helpful manager. Everything was as promised. Great kitchen; high end appliances. The house has a wonderful flow for a large family. Did I mention the ping pong table in the garage? A house built for fun. The beds were all comfortable, the elevated dining room table was perfect for family meals and game night. The living room couches were so comfortable, including reclining sections. A quick drive to the slopes and grocery stores. We will come back to this house. I repeat, this place was clean!

Great house for a family or friend trip!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in early November. Cool, crisp, no snow yet. Beautiful, very clean, everything you need in a vacation house. We had kids age 10-13 and adults. Fire pit table on the deck. Spa in the backyard was clean and great! Horse shoe pit on the side of the house. Had pool table, ping pong table, foosball and more! Corner house in a short little cul de sac. Dry lake bed across the street where the kids went exploring, forest across the highway (like crossing the busy street.) Warning: The lake water is WAY down. I believe some of these homes in this tract were lake front at one time but no longer. But this did not take away from the charm of this home. House manager meets you when you get there and shows you around and shows you how to work everything. He answered all calls/texts quickly and let us check in early. We will be staying here again I'm sure! If you have elementary school kids, the streets around this house are great for the kids bikes or scooters. We threw the football around in the street, very minimal car traffic. a little steep slippery stairs to the 2nd floor so I would not recommend this house for toddlers or elderly. A couple of tips for the owner...could use more sitting furniture for balcony and all the doors need wd 40 for the squeaks. Wanted to order a Pay Per View fight but the capability was blocked. That was a bit disappointing (but we got over it!) The kitchen had everything we needed to cook, was open with large amount of counter space, and fire pit table was just off the kitchen so we sat out there one of the nights and ate our dinner. Has intercom system throughout the house making it easy to call up the kids for dinner. Tv sitting area was nice with reclining couches, comfortable with fireplace available in the same room. Bed in the main upstairs master bedroom was very comfortable. City is just a few miles away. Went to Alpine slide then to the village for shopping. Had a picnic at a picnic spot off the side of the road. Grocery store is about a 1-2 min drive. Could take a nice short walk to the lake from the house. Starbucks too! 5/5 stars on this one! Loved it. Would like to come back during the snow season.
