Why Linda Mauritson chose Lake Tahoe North Shore CA

We built this home in 1991 because our children were on the race team at Northstar. This home was custom built, and enjoyed by our family for years. It was recently partially renovated and has a new kitchen, master bathroom, and laundry room.

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous stay with all our children their spouses and 3 small grandchildren. It was a great size house to accommodate our needs. The shuttle service to the village and lifts is a great asset. You just ring and they come and pick you up. And there are regular return shuttles - we never waited more than 5 minutes. the only downside is that the downstairs rooms can hear every footstep from upstairs so we had to remind everyone to tread softly late at night. But this would not deter me from staying there again - Linda, the owner was great to deal with and everything was as expected. And the snow was great!!

One of the best homes we have stayed in.

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed staying at this beautiful spacious home in Northstar which was fully equipped, especially the kitchen. We loved having our own private baths. The listing description was more than accurate.

It felt more like a home than a rental and we hope to come back again.

The owner provided excellent customer service when we called her regarding a concern.

Great house for a big group that loves to cook and be outside

  • 5 of 5

A fully equipped and large house that was comfortable for several families. The layout was great in that everyone had their own space (including own bathrooms!) and a cozy but large great room. We have rented many places through VRBO and AirBnB and this is the best stocked kitchen we've ever come across. If you like to cook this is the house for you. It also had great access to Northstar for skiing and some great walks and hiking right out the front door. We would strongly recommend it.

Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

Our family a great stay & family reunion at this property! The home was clean, well maintained & accurately represented in the listing pictures & description. Plenty of space for all. The kitchen is large & well stocked. A crib, Pack'n'Play & high chair were a big plus for a family with small children. The owner was responsive to our questions & needs. This property is in a great location within the Northstar resort, Close to the resort village, downtown Truckee & Kings Beach. The Northstar village offers activities for all & our family enjoyed many of them! We would highly recommend!!

Beautiful, well-equipped home, great rental experience

  • 5 of 5

Home is exactly as described and even better, in fact. Very clean. Gourmet kitchen has newer, stainless appliances and is well equipped with cooking accessories. Off the upstairs master there is an additional room with a crib and futon. Really nice bedding and comfortable beds throughout. Location within Northstar was very easy to get to. There is also a hiking trail behind the house.

What I really appreciated too was the responsiveness by the owner. She was great at responding to emails and answering questions. It felt like she was on top of things.

Very reasonable rental price and terms for what you get. Hope to stay there again!

Perfect home for a large family or couples

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at this home for a family reunion. Other relatives rented homes in Northstar but this was by far the best one. We had a wonderful stay. There was plenty of space for people to relax and enjoy the outdoors and the indoors. The grand piano was a wonderful plus. I can't say enough about the kitchen and how well it was equipped. It was a joy to cook in the kitchen when we were not eating elsewhere. The thought of two washers and dryers seemed excessive but we soon realized how great that was, especially with having an infant with us. The crib room off the master bedroom worked out perfectly for our six month old granddaughter. The owner was very responsive and helpful when we had questions. I would recommend this home to anyone who visits Northstar.
