Amazing Family Home

  • 5 of 5

We will definitely be back to this property! The home is spacious and clean; lots of areas for entertaining and gathering family and friends. Especially enjoyed the large hot tub post long ski days.

Great home for winter fun

  • 5 of 5

We are very happy that we have chosen this house to celebrate 2016 New Year. It is VERY spacious and accommodates everybody. The floor plan is unique – It's a three level property with a huge living room and two guest rooms on the primary entrance level, master bedroom and another guest bedroom on the second lower level and play family room on the third level. All rooms have plenty of space and light. We particularly enjoyed the hot tub on the patio which is ideal to soak after the day on the slopes. And yes, Northstar is just 3 minutes away on the courtesy shuttle which circulates between the village and houses. We never waited more than 5 mins for shuttle to arrive! Kitchen is stoked with all you may need to prepare the delicious dinner and house itself has lots of entertainment like hot tub, pool, fireplaces, tv in case you want to stay in. With a close proximity to the Northstar you don't have to worry about parking and can enjoy what the resort offers at your leisure.

Best Vacation Rental!

  • 5 of 5

This Northstar home was the best vacation rental we have experienced. The property was spacious, beautiful and homey. Located with ideal access to the Village, Rec Center, Golf Course and Lake Tahoe or Truckee we had a truly wonderful and memorable family reunion. We especially enjoyed sitting out on the spacious deck with great views of mountains, trees and golf course. House had so many amenities there were lots of great options for everyone (hot tub, pool table, game room, piano etc...) as well as space to get away when needed. We hope to return on a regular basis! Thank you Lowes family!

Wonderful Tahoe House

  • 5 of 5

I rented this house for the Tough Mudder weekend and had a great time! Very spacious house with lots of amenities, especially the hot tub and pool table! Its a great house for large groups. The kitchen was fully stocked and easy to use. The owner was very easy to communicate with and it was a smooth transaction. I will definitely rent this house again in the future.

Great Tahoe House

  • 5 of 5

My family of six and another family of 4 stayed in this wonderful home. We have rented many homes via VRBO, but this home really had all the amenites we needed. The kitchen was fully stocked with two sets of cutlery and plenty of dishes. There is an island with an additional sink so two people can be cooking at the same time. The family room is very open and connected to the kitchen so that the kids can play while the adults cook and can keep an eye on them. The downstairs family room was a great bonus and allowed us some quiet reading time and kids homework time. There was garage parking and the bus came almost immediatly when we called to take us to the slopes. The owner, Shirley, was very easy to work with. I will rent this cabin again.

Winter family reunion

  • 5 of 5

It took me a long time to search out all the possible homes to rent and still get the amenities for all that would be attending our family reunion from very young to older relatives. This home turned out much better than expected. An added bonus was allowing my relative to bring her 2 dogs, otherwise she wouldn't be coming. This was very nice as the owner usually wants just one dog. And it was perfect for the dogs as this house is on a dead end street with little if any traffic except the shuttle which comes by regularly to pick people up and take them to their desired locations. Just down the street is an entrance to walking trails for dogs and people which were EXCELLENT. You can even walk to the town shopping from there as it was a mile hike. We didn't use the Rec Room facility, but the owner left the passes out for us to use just the same. The little ones had more fun sledding out the back yard which had an awesome hill and didn't want to ski when they discovered that. There were 10 of us and we all had very hot showers when needed, a fully stocked kitchen for cooking, a great hot tub out back and a downstairs play area or study area for those who needed to get away from the noise. The football games were always on so it was nice to have a big screen upstairs and one downstairs for little ones to see a movie occasionally as football was not their highlight. I highly recommend this house and the owner was extremely pleasant and easy to work with. It was very clean upon arrival. A+ We'd go back again only try the summer months. We picked the most expensive and crowded time to go.

About Shirley Lowes

We have lived in 8 countries on three continents and still count Northstar among our favorite places to stay. We love children and golden retrievers. We have had our most special family and friend times in Northstar. We hope you will too.

Shirley Lowes purchased this house in 1995

Why Shirley Lowes chose Truckee

Northstar and the surrounding Sierra mountains and Lake Tahoe offer it all.

What makes this house unique

Sitting in our sunken hot tub. You can almost touch the stars. Enjoying our wood burning fireplace and large screen TVS. BBQ on the upper deck. Quietness of our cul du sac location and golf course view. Walk to NS village in summer- very close home off Basque.
