Overview

About the property

A luxurious 4 bedroom, 4.5 bathroom custom home with 5-star finishes.

The Eagles Nest is an upscale, professionally decorated Big Springs home with 4 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms and a private outdoor hot tub (brand new May 2017). The Eagles Nest is ideal for a gathering of friends and family, with soaring cathedral ceilings throughout, a giant wood burning fireplace fashioned from huge stones, and light streaming in through abundant windows. You will be greeted by beautiful slate floors, original oil paintings and fine leather furniture in the common areas. Enjoy the silence and extreme comfort of hydronic radiant heating throughout plus free high speed wi-fi. If you're visiting in the Summer, you'll enjoy the central air conditioning, a very rare feature in this region.

The chef’s kitchen features granite countertops, a Viking 6-burner cooktop, stainless steel fridge, freezer, microwave oven, conventional oven and convection oven, dual sinks, Belgian waffle maker, slow cooker, hand mixer, blender, toaster, toaster oven and all the pots, pans and cooking utensils you could possibly need. 3 coffee makers help you get just what you want in the morning: Keurig maker, traditional Cuisinart coffee maker, and an espresso maker. The great room has a 42 inch plasma TV with DVD player, DirecTV, and theater sound. Elsewhere on the main floor, a billiards table is accompanied by a wet bar. An alcove has its own gas fireplace, a TV on which kids can watch DVDs and a laser printer/photo copier/fax machine. The dining room table seats 12 and the breakfast bar seats an additional 6. Upstairs is a common area with couch that folds into a very comfortable queen sized bed (no really, it's amazing and not your typical terrible sofa bed) and a 40 inch LCD TV that can be used for watching DVDs or playing video games (if you bring your own console). A laundry room offers high end, large capacity Kenmore washer and dryer. The garage has room for 2 cars, a 240V receptacle for your electric vehicle, and contains firewood you are free to use. Off the garage you’ll find the mudroom is perfect for storing coats, boots and the like. On the stone patio, enjoy the private brand new (installed May 2017) hot tub—which seats 4 adults—and barbecue using the huge stainless steel Weber gas grill.

Bedrooms each have their own private bathroom en suite and feature European goose down pillows, top quality mattresses, high thread count bedding, bathrobes and Turkish cotton towels to make you comfortable (in case you are allergic to down pillows, we also have 2 pairs of hypoallergenic non-down pillows in closets). The master suite features a king bed, gas fireplace, balcony, jetted spa tub and standing shower. The second bedroom features a queen bed and private bathroom. The third bedroom has a king bed and private bathroom. The fourth bedroom has 3 bunk beds (to sleep 6) plus a bathroom. The upstairs common area has a queen sized sleeper sofa that is remarkably comfortable and firm and 89 inches in length--not your usual flimsy, terrible fold out couch where your feet hang off the end.

Situated on half of an acre on a private cul-de-sac in the prestigious Big Springs neighborhood above the Village, Eagles Nest is a 10-minute walk (or a 1-minute drive) to the Timberline chair lift. The property features a grass backyard and natural forest and backs up to the Tompkins Memorial hiking trail. The Northstar shuttle service will pick up your group at the end of the driveway—just call and the shuttle usually arrives within minutes—and take you to the Village or recreation center for free. The rec center—available to guests for just $2 per visit—offers multiple swimming pools, a huge hot tub, a gym and, in the summer, tennis courts. The Northstar Village offers several great restaurants and bars, an ice-skating / roller-skating rink, a movie theater, a Starbucks and plenty of shopping. From The Eagles Nest, you may walk / hike down to the Village in less than 10 minutes on hiking paths and a natural stone stairway maintained by Northstar (though the path is not suitable for the frail or elderly nor when snow is on the ground).

If you do not bring a pet, we do not require a security deposit. Instead, we include a $59 insurance policy in every rental that covers $1,500 of property damage. If you do want to bring a pet, please request approval of the Owner when you inquire; bringing a pet necessitates a $2,000 refundable security deposit because the above-mentioned insurance only covers damage by people and does not cover damage by pets.

Enjoy 8pm checkout on Sundays January through May. Wrap up your day of fun, shower and refresh, and drive back after some of the traffic has eased!

Each visit must include a single, complete weekend (the Friday and Saturday nights must be back to back) unless you want to visit only for weeknights. For example, staying Thursday - Monday or Friday - Thursday are permitted; staying Saturday - Saturday is not permitted. Weekly rates assume a single, complete weekend (the Friday and Saturday nights must be back to back) plus 5 weeknights.

If you are booking more than 6 months in advance, we can accept a 25% deposit at time of booking with 75% due 6 months prior to check in. Contact the owner if you would like to request these payment terms.

About Jon Venverloh

We love gatherings of family and friends and chose this home because the layout of the common areas brings people together. At the same time, the bedrooms are quiet and private, and each has its own bathroom.

Jon Venverloh purchased this house in 2005

Why Jon Venverloh chose Truckee

This is a beautiful custom home built in 2002 to the highest standards. Big Springs homes are mostly 2nd and 3rd homes, so there is little traffic and it's extremely quiet. Take hikes right out the back door. In typical winters, it's even possible to ski in if you know the way!

What makes this house unique

The Eagles Nest is situated on about 1/2 of an acre with a very gentle slope towards the street. There is lots of space between homes in the Big Springs neighborhood. The driveway is easy to manage, unlike some of the properties in Tahoe.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Jon, we had a fabulous week at your Eagles Nest. Your home is absolutely beautiful and was perfect for our family. We were very impressed with the Northstar community, shuttles, village, etc. The fireworks on New years eve were an added bonus. We all went out to the end of your street and there they were, bursting beautifully right in front of us! This truly was a dream vacation for our family. Thank you for sharing your home.

Great comfy, cozy cabin for the family!

  • 5 of 5

Staying at the eagles nest was so great!! Right when you walk in you feel like you are home for the weekend! It has everything you would need or want! So very spacious and placed between the trees it feels like no one is around for miles. We took an afternoon hike around the neighborhood and when we got home we started a cozy fire! Definitely recommend this place! We would love to rent it for a holiday next year. Also the owners are so very great and easy to work with and also have a manager that is a call away if you should need anything!

Thanks Eagles Nest!

Good, not Great

  • 3 of 5

We have stayed in this area for winter and summer vacations for the last ten years and rented many houses, so we know what makes a great rental vs. good. This home has both great features and some that are just ok or not so good. First, the home was clean and well cared for, and the kitchen has everything you would ever need which is rare in a rental. The homes layout is perfect for large families with a great room and central kitchen, it made it easy to serve meals and enjoy the fireplace. The location is also excellent, it is the first stop on the shuttle but you can also walk to the village which we found to be a great option. The hot tub is awesome, and having a pool table kept our family entertained. The extra big dining table was also nice, the whole group could sit for a meal at the same time. Overall, the home itself is great, the concerns we had are very common with rentals but are easy to fix. First, the beds are all super firm, so if you normally don't sleep on a firm mattress, you will not get much sleep. Easy fix, have a memory foam pad in each bedroom so you can make the beds softer, or put in sleep number mattresses ( many rental do this). Second, when we went to use the BBQ, the gas ran out right in the middle of cooking. Easy to check, not sure why it happened. Third, the driveway is very narrow, curved and has a rock wall on one side. Backing a car down is not easy, and multiple cars is a pain since everyone gets locked in. As a preference, we prefer gas fireplaces that operate off a switch, it's easy to come and go by turning off the fireplace. If you like hauling wood and tending to a fire then this is a good fit. There are two smaller fireplaces that are gas, but one switch is behind the panel at the bottom which gets hot when in use. The one in the bedroom works ok. Finally, the entertainment system (TV, Music, WiFi) are dated, the TV is small and can't keep up with HD formats and constantly cuts in and out. The music system has some issues as well, one channel seems to be out leaving everything sounding hollow. An update to a smart TV and full wireless system would be welcome.

As I said overall, good, but not the best we have had at this price.

Owner's Response: David - Thanks for your appreciation of the location, the layout, the kitchen, the hot tub, the pool table, the dining table and how clean and well equipped our home is. Sounds like you found the mattresses too firm. Usually an overly soft mattress means it is old or worn out and we prefer new, firmer ones. The upstairs king bed is, in fact, adjustable for firmness (each person can adjust to her/his liking) but perhaps you overlooked that. Nonetheless we like your idea of having a memory foam pad in each room and we are going to get those put in place. I also agree that the entertainment system is due for upgrades, so thanks for giving us a nudge to improve them. Thanks for your visit!

Perfect spot for family and or friends get together!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary here with our family of 11 over X-Mas. The home is gorgeous with room for everyone of all ages. Lots of wonderful amenities including a pool table which we all enjoyed. Shuttle to Northstar and the recreation center was a dream .....so convenient! I especially liked the heated floor. I would definitely recommend this terrific Tahoe home. 12/2017

Amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful home!! My six grandkids ages 10 month old twins, 3year old, 4 year old, 5 year old and 8 year really enjoyed your home. The bunk bed room was a hit and so was the loft. The built in baby gates were wonderful as were the child proof locks. The amenities were all great. The adults loved your home too. Right now all the kids are playing outside in the snow!! This is the best home we have ever rented!! Thanks Jon and your family and also Justin for all his help.

Perfect vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Eagles Nest a number of times through the years and just love it. It is clean, beautifully appointed, a very comfortable house for our family. The hot tub and pool table were enjoyed by all. We look forward to staying again next year.

Beautiful home in Northstar

  • 5 of 5

This 4 bedroom home was very comfortable for our group of 6 adults and two children. The home worked especially well with having our 2 year old and 3 year old grandchildren with us. The home is very organized and it was easy to find everything you needed in the kitchen. Loved that all the electrical switches were labeled to indicate what light it worked. This house would not be the best if you had someone in your group that could not easily get up and down stairs. It was quite a chore to get luggage, etc. up the stairs and into the house. I would definitely recommend staying at this beautiful home which was close to Northstar Village and about 6 miles to Kings Beach.
