About Henry and Pat Verissimo

We are Hank and Pat Verissimo. We have been married for 57 years and have a large family of 4 children, 13 grandchildren, and 7 great/grandchildren. We chose Northstar to live because we love to ski and it has been a place with many memories of friends and family.

Henry and Pat Verissimo purchased this house in 1990

Why Henry and Pat Verissimo chose Lake Tahoe North Shore

After renting homes at Northstar for 15 years we decided to design and build a home especially suited for our large family.

What makes this house unique

Our home lets us ski in a world class resort. We enjoy hiking, biking and the friendly people At Northstar. It is a little piece of heaven.

Colfax High School Snowboard team

  • 5 of 5

I am a fire captain and a snowboard coach. We had state championships held at North Star this year. I booked this house for 6 students and my wife and I. We enjoyed how clean the place was and how big the house is. The house accommodated enough sleeping and fun activities. I would highly recommend this house.

Clean home with everything in the perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 12 consisting of 3 families each with 2 kids ages 7 and 9. This home was perfect! In the big bedrooms upstairs, the kids slept on their camping mats and sleeping bags and the 3rd family had the 2 rooms downstairs, everyone was comfortable.

The home is well-maintained and very clean, it's clearly a place the owners love as their own and not just stock as a rental. The kitchen is large and stocked with innumerable dishes and cookware. There is lots of entertainment, both the ping pong and pool tables are top quality and there were other things throughout the house like backgammon, checkers, stuffed animals, etc.

We really loved the location next to the open space reserve where some of us hiked or jogged, and the value of being on the Northstar resort bus line can't be overstated. Despite the lack of snow, as beginner and intermediate skiers we still had a great time skiing on the mountain thanks to the runs where they were making snow. Pat and Hank were wonderful hosts and made us feel very welcome. We're fortunate to have stayed in their home to enjoy a great time in Tahoe with friends.

Great place for family fun!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from staying in this beautiful, well designed and well appointed 'cottage' in the woods at Northstar. This cabin ideally accommodated us, our children, our grandchildren in comfort and style! Each had our own bed, and access to 4 full baths and 1 more commode, just in case. It was great! And the kitchen is fabulous. Made me want to cook. Down side is the hot tub is in the rec center which is easily accessible via the shuttle, but one needs to dress for shuttle ride there and back. Plus, the owner's passes apply only to the owners. The rec center charged $2.00/ea since we were not Verissimo's. We really enjoyed our time in this unit and would definitely return whenever in the Northstar region.
