About the property

House, 6 Bedrooms, 6.5 Baths, (Sleeps 21 in beds)

The interior of this homes sets it apart and into a class all its own. Hand distressed beams, hand hewed walnut floors and intricate masonry create that 'Old Tahoe' feel. A gourmet kitchen complete with a a 60' Thermador range allows you to create a feast for your family and friends.

This home has a wonderful open floor plan. The kitchen, dining, and living room areas create a warm gathering place after a fun day on the slopes or on the trails. And while the adults gather there, the kids (or "kids at heart") have a place all to their own - a huge game room area in the lower level keeps them entertained so the adults can have some time to themselves. And, in the winter, they have their own private sledding hill right in back of the house.

Our amazing game room has something for everyone: Two big screen televisions (with Xbox game consoles), billiards table, 16' long professional shuffleboard table, professional foosball table, ping pong table, two iMacs (for internet browsing), and a large game table (seats 8) that will be perfect for the poker or card game players.

The large main deck is ideal for outdoor entertaining in the spring, summer & fall. A large table seats 12, and there are two patio heaters for those crisp Tahoe evenings. But the "star" of our main deck is the steel log gas fire pit, just like the ones you will find around the lodges & villages of the world's best ski resorts. Fire it up, and pull up one of our Adirondack chairs to enjoy the radiant glow all night long. The main deck also features a Weber gas grill and a Blackstone gas griddle during the spring, summer & fall.

This home boasts six bedroom suites. Four of those bedrooms have king beds. Another one has a queen & a twin. The sixth bedroom is a bunk room (six twin beds) with a private bath. One of the king suites has an attached bedroom with twin beds (bunk), perfect for guests with small children. We also have thick sleeping pads for those kids who want to sleep in their parent's room.

The Home Run ski trail is a short walk to the end of the street - you can take that down to the Village, or to the Highlands Gondola, for a quick trip up to the slopes or to the Ritz Carlton.

Or, you can call for the free shuttle to take you anywhere at Northstar.

Please note that our home is not suitable for hosting any kind of event. We do not accept reservations for weddings, receptions, or any kind of party.

Second time just as good as the first!

  • 5 of 5

Two families of four and a friend shared this home over the Thanksgiving week for the second year in a row after having such a great time last year. The house fully lived up to our memories. It's very spacious with large rooms and high ceilings yet it feels very warm and inviting inside. We cooked many meals including our Thanksgiving dinner there and once again we found the kitchen fully stocked with every type of cookware and small appliance that we needed and there is an abundance of dishes, glasses, etc. The beds are comfortable, we didn't have to touch the climate control system at all the whole time we were there, and the house is clean and well maintained. The house could easily accommodate more people than we had in our group. Once again, we found the Northstar shuttle system very convenient as the walk back from the village in the snow is a little much for our youngest kids. This year a group of us successfully skied right down the slope at the end of the street to where the gondola will take you to the mid-mountain (near the Ritz) ski area which was a fun way to start a day of skiing. All in all, this house is a great option for any large group planning a vacation in the Northstar area.

Summer Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful and there was plenty of room for our 4 families during the week long stay. We had a range of different ages and everyone had things to keep them busy. It is close to a walking trail that can be taken directly to the Village. The Northstar Recreation Center was wonderful and everyone enjoyed the pools and hot tubs. Also, daily activities for younger children. Would definitely rent the house again.

Amazing and fun home!

  • 5 of 5

This is by far the best vacation rental home I have ever stayed in! Myself and the rest of our guests had a blast, the game room is like nothing you have ever seen and there is more than enough room for a large group to stay comfortably. Would stay here again no question

The Ultimate Tahoe House

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying at this amazing North Star house this past weekend. The house is everything you could dream about in a Tahoe cabin. It has a chef kitchen, ample space, play room (which has all the best games you would want to play), hot tub, surround sound, beautiful interior decorations and a comfortable feeling. The house is in the perfect location and the shuttle service was super easy. It was definitely a treat to be able to stay in this great home. The owners are wonderful to work with as well. Thank you for this treasured experience.

Amazing Wedding/Ski/Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from our daughter’s Lake Tahoe Wedding. We had an incredible stay in this lovely upscale home. Impeccably furnished and well-maintained. I wish we had more people in our group because we didn’t even use most of the living space. The entire lower floor is an enormous game room that some of us used only once, but for families with children, it is a dream! When we weren’t on the slopes, we were always gathered around the spacious kitchen/family room/dining room on the main floor. Pictures don’t do this space justice! The fully-equipped kitchen is fabulous and certainly made it fun and easy to prepare meals at home. There was 2’ of fresh snow for fantastic spring skiing, but it was 50-60 degrees in the sun, so we were able to enjoy our morning coffee on the deck with serene views! Village shuttle comes to front door within 5 minutes of calling. Thanks for your quick responses and accommodations, Dave! We hope to return next year!
