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 Truckee

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.

Our family had a great stay at this home. The house is very comfortable and the kitchen is well stocked for cooking. The location is great for taking the shuttle to Northstar. We will definitely be back!

Perfect location, perfect house for families with kids

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect and better than expected. Elliot was super nice and responded quickly since the beginning. He was super nice to let us do a late check out as the house was not rented that Monday night. The location is awesome. The shuttle that takes you to northstar takes 5 mi utes to get to your house (you call them when you are ready for pick up) and it's just 5 minutes away from

Northstar village. We never used the car in the whole week how awesome is that? The house is super nice and cozy. It has like 2 living rooms which makes it nice if you have kids to leave them in one while you are chatting with friends in the other. It has 3 rooms in the lower level and a room upstairs with 2 beds and a bath (perfect for kids). Only one room is in suite with an awesome jacuzzi with beautiful views of the mountain. What a pleaseure to relax there after a day of ski! The other 2 rooms share the bathroom which is. Raise the main suite. We would totally rent the place again and recommended we had the most wonderful time, thanks Elliot for sharing your beautiful home and being so generous.

Lovely home so close to the slopes!

  • 5 of 5

The house has everything you need and the owners are so helpful. We were there during a huge storm and the driveway was always plowed. We can't wait to return to this cozy and beautiful home with such easy access to the village!

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.

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.
