About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Fully furnished and air conditioned 2,000 sq. ft. home on the 9th fairway of the beautiful Northstar Golf Course and only minutes from the Northstar-at-Tahoe Ski Area. The large living room features an open fireplace with gas logs and full entertainment center (HD TV, DVD, VCR, Stereo, Wi-Fi, etc.). The family/dining room looks out on an expansive view of the golf course and the Martis Valley beyond. A large open deck surrounds the rear of the house, providing a perfect setting for summer outdoor dining and relaxing. In the winter, the golf course provides a convenient venue for snowshoeing and cross country skiing (snow permitting).

The main level features three bedrooms: a king bed in master bedroom, a queen bed in second bedroom, and a queen bed in third bedroom. The master bedroom has a TV and features a large Jacuzzi tub in the master bath. The fourth bedroom upstairs has twin beds (2), a full bath and a TV/VCR.

The home includes full access to the Northstar Recreation Center, which features several hot tubs, a kiddie pool, two large swimming pools, a large game room, fitness center, bocce ball court and 12 tennis courts.

The Northstar-at-Tahoe ski area is only minutes away on the free shuttle buses provided by the Northstar transportation department. The completely new Northstar Village provides a host of shopping and dining options and features a large outdoor skating rink and fire pits in the winter and roller skating in the summer.

About Eliot Terborgh

We're a retired couple with three grown children and six grandchildren. We live in the Bay Area and have been skiing at Northstar for nearly 40 years.

Eliot Terborgh purchased this house in 1998

Why Eliot Terborgh chose Lake Tahoe North Shore CA

In 1998, we also took up golf, so it was an easy choice to purchase a vacation home that we could use for both golf and skiing. We frequently stay at the home in both winter and summer. It's right on the Northstar golf course and only minutes away from the Northstar Village and ski area.

What makes this house unique

Conveniently located for golf, skiing and hiking in the Martis Valley.

Great cabin, very spacious, well decorated, and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The owner did a great job communicating throughout the rental process and was always courteous. The property was very comfortable with great furniture and many beds. The house had everything as mentioned in the description in terms of number of beds and the items described. The cabin was well maintained, was cleaned before we arrived, and I found it to be a very enjoyable experience. I would recommend staying here to anyone looking for a place in the area.

Excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

Our second time renting this house - great for summer & winter. Great location for both - easy to get to the village. Nice to have backyard open with view of golf course, meadow, and allows kids to have space to play.

Winter break 2015

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house. Very spacious, great location, and the house has a cabin feel but everything is modern. The furniture and beds were all very comfortable. We spent every evening after skiing with our boys in front of the fire. The shuttle to Northstar always came within 10 minutes of us calling. The owners made themselves accessible and gave us everything we needed to enjoy our stay. They clearly keep this house in top shape and we plan to rent it again.

Thanksgiving 2015

  • 5 of 5

House was wonderful for our 3 generation family. It was warm and cozy with the two areas for entertaining. The adults loved the fire and the 4 and 6 year olds loved being in an area by themselves. The house was well stocked with everything you could possibly need. It was convenient having a washer and dryer because the 18 inches of snow generated wet and dirty clothes. It was a magical holiday for our family that will long be remembered. We will return again as the owner was so helpful and accommodating!

Christmas 2014

  • 5 of 5

House was great! Very well provisioned. Plenty of room for three couples and children. We enjoyed having two separate living areas for folks to play games, socialize, or kick back by the warm fireplace. Three inches of fresh snow providing a white Christmas was also a plus.

Cozy Christmas Getaway

  • 5 of 5

What a great house! There were 8 of us (3 were young children) and we had plenty of room at meals and just loved sitting by the large fireplace in the family room. The owners were so kind and made this a wonderful experience for us. I would recommend this house for your stay at Northstar!
