About Laurie

We are retired and in second careers and love all the seasons Truckee has to offer and now want to share with others.

Laurie purchased this house in 2006

Why Laurie chose Lake Tahoe North Shore CA

We used to bring our daughters to North Lake Tahoe when they were young to go skiing years ago and now have realized our dream of owning a vacation home here many years later. North Lake Tahoe is one of the most beautiful places in the world and we are now would like to rent our home so others can enjoy this beautiful area of the country.

What makes this house unique

We take pride in decorating our home in the mountain theme and keeping it maintained to high standards. We think you would be very comfortable and enjoy what we have found to be a relaxing vacation in a beautiful setting.

New Year's Trip

  • 5 of 5

The Truckee Retreat was the best ski house my friends have rented in a long time. We only had two couples at the home, but there is plenty of room for three couples or a family with children. It was a great location for Squaw, Northstar, and downtown Truckee. The kitchen is fully stocked with all the appliances and utensils you would need to cook, the beds were very comfortable, and it is beautifully decorated. We loved everything about this house and hope to rent again soon. Thank you for sharing your home with us.

Presidents Day Weekend Trip

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place for us, two adults and two teenagers. The setting is beautiful and the house amenities were excellent, we loved the sheets. We would have preferred more snow at the house, but it's a drought year and we didn't have far to go to find some. We liked the proximity to the old town where we ate and shopped a few times over the weekend. This is a great home base for access to all the amenities of the Tahoe area.

50th Birthday Weekend

  • 5 of 5

My sisters and I spent a very memorable weekend at this beautiful house. The occasion was a 50th birthday celebration for just the 3 of us and the house offered everything we could imagine. We truly felt like we were honored guests and not like faceless renters. The home was lovingly prepared and it was obvious that Eric and Laurie wanted us to enjoy our time there.

The surroundings are beautiful and very peaceful. The decks are well maintained and incredibly inviting for any time of day. We enjoyed chatting, dining, and just reflecting while overlooking the property. The spa was perfectly maintained and a great place to sit while looking up at the evening sky!

The kitchen had everything we needed, the entertainment system was great, each bed was very comfortable, and I'm happy to say there were enough bathrooms for the 3 of us!

We've added this home to our "definitely doing again" list. Thank you, Laurie & Eric, for sharing your wonderful home.

Sons 18th birthday

  • 5 of 5

This was a very wonderful vacation for our sons 18th birthday and the house far exceeded the description and pictures. The décor was rustic yet modern and comfortable. We planned a ski weekend for our sons 18th birthday and 3 of his friends. They skied at Northstar and Sugar Bowl (which we enjoyed Sugar Bowl so much more), the house was so closely located to both that within 10 - 15 minutes we were there. The house was wonderful with us upstairs in the master suite and kids downstairs with their own bathroom and the 1/2 bath was much needed. The location only 5 minutes to down town Truckee we were able to go out one evening for a wonderful dinner at Bar of America. I would recommend the house to everyone and we are already talking about coming again next year. You really do not need to take a "thing" as the house had everything you could possibly want and more, clothes and food is all you need. Thank you Laurie and Eric for sharing your wonderful home with us to make a life time memory for our family and being available all the time for our questions. Also thank you to your neighbors for allowing us to play with their black lab outside in the snow, as we missed our labs at home.

Amazing Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great rental and Laurie is extremely nice and easy to reach in case you would have any questions (as we did). The Cabin is very clean with all the appliances you could possibly need. We would certainly stay here again, we just loved it. It exceeded our expectations. Thank you!!
