About the property

House, 6 Bedrooms, 6.5 Baths, (Sleeps 21 in beds)

NEW FOR 2018... Beautiful 900 s.f. deck off the lower level game room - perfect for enjoying our incredible Tahoe summers!

The interior of this homes sets it apart and into a class all its own. Hand distressed beams, hand hewed walnut floors and intricate masonry create that 'Old Tahoe' feel. A gourmet kitchen complete with a a 60' Thermador range allows you to create a feast for your family and friends.

This home has a wonderful open floor plan. The kitchen, dining, and living room areas create a warm gathering place after a fun day on the slopes or on the trails. And while the adults gather there, the kids (or "kids at heart") have a place all to their own - a huge game room area in the lower level keeps them entertained so the adults can have some time to themselves. And, in the winter, they have their own private sledding hill right in back of the house.

Our amazing game room has something for everyone: Two big screen televisions (with Xbox game consoles), billiards table, 16' long professional shuffleboard table, professional foosball table, ping pong table, two iMacs (for internet browsing), and a large game table (seats 8) that will be perfect for the poker or card game players. Our latest addition is a vintage Addams Family Pinball Machine - the most popular pinball machine ever made.

The large main deck is ideal for outdoor entertaining in the spring, summer & fall. A large table seats 12, and there are two patio heaters for those crisp Tahoe evenings. But the "star" of our main deck is the steel log gas fire pit, just like the ones you will find around the lodges & villages of the world's best ski resorts. Fire it up, and pull up one of our Adirondack chairs to enjoy the radiant glow all night long. The main deck also features a Weber gas grill during the spring, summer & fall.

This home boasts six bedroom suites. Four of those bedrooms have king beds. Another one has a queen & a twin. The sixth bedroom is a bunk room (six twin beds) with a private bath. One of the king suites has an attached bedroom with twin beds (bunk), perfect for guests with small children. We also have thick sleeping pads for those kids who want to sleep in their parent's room.

The Home Run ski trail is a short walk to the end of the street - you can take that down to the Village, or to the Highlands Gondola, for a quick trip up to the slopes or to the Ritz Carlton.

Or, you can call for the free shuttle to take you anywhere at Northstar.

Please note that our home is not suitable for hosting any kind of event. We do not accept reservations for weddings, receptions, or any kind of party.

Cancellation Policy: Upon notification of a request to cancel, we will attempt to re-rent the reserved dates. If we are able to do so then all monies paid to us will be refunded. If we are unable to re-rent the reserved dates then no refund will be issued.

Wife’s surprise 40th

  • 5 of 5

This property is top notch...We had a large group for my wife’s 40th birthday. The home is beautiful and close to Northstar Village. We really enjoyed the game room and sledding right out the back door of the property. Great communication with the owner. 5 Plus stars for this property.

Absolutely perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

We have rented many places in northstar over the years and we all agreed this is the best! The home is so well equipped with everything we needed and then some. So much space and having family time in the game room was so much fun. We’re alreafy looking at booking for next year. Look no further!

Fantastic Northstar Home

  • 5 of 5

Over the years, we have rented too many Northstar homes to count, and this one is right at the top of the list. Although it's by no means cheap, it's actually quite a good value as well. There are bedrooms and other clever sleeping spaces on each of three levels, including a 6-person kids' room adjacent to a huge and almost comically well-equipped gaming area. During ski season, the nearly-level driveway that accommodates 4 additional cars outside the 2-car garage is a godsend. Should there be any problems --- and even the most luxurious rental homes have them --- Dave is a meticulous and responsive host. Highly recommended.

Our home is located on the mountain at Northstar resort, just above the Village at Northstar. In the winter season, the Home Run ski trail can be accessed at the end of our cul-de-sac. That will take you to the Highland Gondola, for access to the Ritz Carlton & the Mid-Mountain lifts. It will also take you to the Village. In the summer season, you can walk to the Village on trails just below our home. Soon, a bike trail will be completed that will allow you to ride all the way to Truckee.
