About Birch Entriken

I am an airline pilot, married, with two small children, and one large dog.

Birch Entriken purchased this house in 1979

Why Birch Entriken chose Lake Tahoe North Shore CA

This home has been in my family since it was built in 1979. I was our primary residence for many years until 2010, when we moved to Reno. We weren't ready to give up the pine trees and the lifestyle, so we decided to try renting it out so that we could continue to enjoy the property when it was not rented.

What makes this house unique

You get all the amenities of Northstar with the convenience of Truckee and the North Shore of Lake Tahoe just minutes away. The outdoor activities are virtually unlimited year round.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wow! What can we say that you don't already know. Everything, I mean everything was perfect! This is not a rental, but a lovely, lovely home that reflected all the personal touches from a dear friend or favorite family member. All the special, homey touches provided with pride and care. From our family to yours, thank you for a wonderful time, all the amenities, and the memories that will last a lifetime! This home is sincerely blessed! Again, thank you for your graciousness.

A spacious and well appointed home

  • 5 of 5

It was our first time in Northstar and we had a wonderful stay in this beautiful house. The house is spacious, with a large, extremely well equipped kitchen, and a well-designed floor plan, and was perfect for our 3 generational get-together. In addition to the indoor dining table, there was an outside dining table on the wraparound deck where we wound up having most of our meals. The availability of a high chair, baby gates, a crib (and a pack-n-play as well) made our stay with our one year old granddaughter safe and easy. The furnishings are comfortable, and the master suite has a large walk-in shower that has a grab-rail, a nice feature for grandparents. The house is not far from the village and Rec Center, and the shuttle service works exceedingly well. Our interactions with the owner, Birch were pleasant and efficient. Before leaving, our family was talking about returning again next year.

Beautiful home

We loved our stay at this home. It is beautiful. The space was perfect for two families of four. Our 2 yr old was well protected with the child gates. Thank you!

Luxurious + Service = PERFECTION

  • 5 of 5

To anyone looking for a rental in Northstar, LOOK NO FURTHER....you will not be disappointed. I am still blown away from the AMAZING experience we had at this rental over the weekend. The cabin itself is beautiful (the pictures don't do justice - it is gorgeous) but the service provided Birch was over the top. I have never experienced such an amazing stay and now I am spoiled for future rentals. Birch's communication from the beginning was fantastic. He made the rental process so easy. Everything we needed was included - from the upscale kitchen items to baby needs. Even the high chair was an added plus. So convenient! Beds were very comfortable, lots of seating in living room including floor space for kids to play. Made our gatherings in front of the fireplace so cozy. The location was perfect. The shuttle was at our door within minutes. It was such a short distance to the village. Birch - again, I can't thank you enough.

Wonderful host and geogeous home

  • 5 of 5

Birch was easy to communicate with, was very responsive and accommodating. The house was clean, comfortable, and had everything we need. The location was amazing and shuttle service was simple and convenient. The induction stove was a little tricky at first but we eventually got it! Would love to stay here again!

Wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5

This home exceeded our expectations! It was beautiful, easily accessible, close to the village, and fully stocked with everything we needed to prepare Thanksgiving dinner and celebrate our daughters 7th birthday. As everyone said the pictures don't do it justice. My only regret is we didn't stay longer. Hopefully we will be back.

This is a true home! So comfortable, extremely well appointed and great for families. Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

Having never used VRBO we did wonder if the photos match what you truly receive. In the case of this beautiful home (as others have said) the photos don't do it justice! Us ladies in the group walked in the door, gasped, hugged and jumped up and down like crazy women! We were in heaven as far as a winter retreat went. Beautiful kitchen, everything you need to whip up..anything! The owners go above and beyond what any resort, condo or holiday complex will ever provide for you for the same money. The shuttle (true to what we were told) took 5 mins from the phone call for pick-up to arriving at our door. It was so convenient. The rec centre and 'privilege' passes you receive to get in there are a godsend at the end of a day on the slopes. The pool and spa are a must for tired muscles. Our whole experience in Northstar and Truckee was made so much better by the accommodation. The beds are WONDERFUL! The extras provided, the little touches, the decor, the location, convenience, the quietness of the neighbourhood, all just made our holiday so special. We were a group of 5 adults and could spread out but there is room for more! The media room upstairs would be a perfect teenagers or kids retreat, leaving the adults to enjoy the house to themselves. Fantastic place, loved it to bits and cannot think of one complaint really...perfect holiday! Want to revisit in summer perhaps?
