Apres Ski Lodge is a lovely, newly constructed home located in the upscale Northstar neighborhood referred to as Big Springs. Apres Ski Lodge is the perfect family vacation retreat, summer or winter. In the winter, don't hassle with parking, instead leisurely finish your hot coffee, pop on your skis and head right out the back door to the Ritz Gondola and Home Run. Inside, revel in the woodsy setting and contemporary mountain decor while you warm your hands by the authentic wood fireplace in the great room. After a hard day on the slopes, the kids will adore relaxing in the downstairs rec room with its gas fireplace, television with DVD and access to the hot tub. In the summer, there is no better place to have fun then the NPOA recreation center pool, tennis and fitness complex. Or, if you want to experience the refreshing crisp lake water and its surrounding, majestic beauty, head the mere seven minutes over the hill directly to the lake. Either season, Apres Ski Lodge is the perfect location from which to launch your vacation retreat!

Each year my family rents a house in Tahoe for a family reunion. Last year we rented this house and it was absolutely perfect. The house sleeps all 12 of us easily and is the perfect layout. We each have privacy in the retreat-like suites. The house has a large beautiful kitchen and a large dining area for fun family dinners. I am very picky when it comes to cleanliness and I was very happy here. The house is clean, and recently renovated beautifully. The house has an incredible view and is an easy walk down to Northstar Village (in summer). My family loved it so much we are headed back this summer. It has become our home away from home. I would highly recommend this rental.
This home was great in multiple respects. With 4 adult couples (and one infant) in our party, each couple had their own bedroom containing a real bed (meaning at least queen or king) and en suite bathroom. And, there was geographic separation of the bedrooms within the house, adding an element of privacy. The fifth bedroom was a bunk bed room for kids where our 17 month-old granddaughter stayed (in a portable crib) next to her parent’s room. The home is just beautiful, in the spectacular western mountain lodge style with lots of wood, exposed beams and logs, a great room, fireplace, and on and on. Just great. The kitchen was beautiful. And there was a large dining room table to accommodate everyone in our party. We fixed dinner ourselves in the home 3 out of the 5 nights we were there. Ski access is easy as well. The ski entry/storage room is also great. You can either walk down about perhaps 200 feet to the gondola base station, or strap your skis on right next to the house and ski down (less than 30 seconds).
It is just a 5-minute walk to the Village at Northstar where the ice rink, shops and restaurants are located. The first half or so of that walk is literally right at the edge of the ski slope (bottom of Home Run, where it ends at the Highlands Gondola loading station). Once down that short ski slope section, you arrive at actual paved trails to get you the rest of the way. We tried food from two different restaurants in the village. Rubicon, the Italian place, was excellent. Very good pizza. And, Mikuni Japanese Restaurant and Sushi Bar was also excellent (one lunch there). We had one nice dinner up at Manzanita in the Ritz-Carlton, taking the Highlands Gondola up and back (stops running at 9PM). The access to the house was quite convenient to that Gondola. That was our ski hill access each day (except for the one day that they closed the gondola until noon for maintenance – kind of frustrating, but what are you going to do?).
The return access to the VRBO home after skiing was really convenient. Even from the very top of Mt. Pluto, where all of the chairs converge at the top, you can ski directly all the way down to the house. You eventually end up on “Home Run” which leads you almost right to the house. So, ski access was great.
Tahoe Luxury Properties was very responsive as well (we only had a couple questions, no problems, but great customer service). Overall, just a truly great ski home rental.
