About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Loft, 5 Baths (Sleeps 12-16)

Step out of the mudroom door and you are ready to ski down Home Run at Northstar. After your full day on the slopes, return to the large fire pit to relax with friends, as you watch the spectacular scene of sunset on Mt. Rose in the distance. When it's time to move indoors, you and fifteen of your friends and family can watch the latest movies or sports event in the most incredible home theater you will ever experience. From its location on the ski run, the unparalleled views, to the fantastic amenities, rLodge offers the absolute best ski-in/ski-out experience in Lake Tahoe.

This beautiful three-story luxury residence is located directly on the Home Run ski slope in Northstar. Ski directly to and from your doorstep. Five bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, an incredible theater and fire pit on the slope make this home the most desirable location on Northstar.

We are so close to the Village at Northstar and the Ritz Carlton that you can literally walk down the ski slope, Home Run, to the village and then take the Gondola up to the Ritz and walk home from there. The location can't get better than this!!

When you ski/board out the back door you will take the trail down to the gondola that will drop you off at the Ritz, from there you use the Big Easy to access multiple lifts that will take you all over the mountain. Our home is located directly next door to the Mountainside Tree House Lodge which has a fully heated pool, large spa, basketball court, gym, lockers with showers, snack bar, pool table, video games, large TV, and a fantastic lounge area with huge fireplace and the most beautiful views of Martis Valley in all of Northstar.

Why Jenny Riley chose Truckee

rLodge is in the middle of everything and features:

* Incredible views

* Three stories of luxurious living

* The most amazing home theater you'll ever experience

* Large fire pit


Most properties advertised as ski-in and ski-out can't compare to rLodge. For years before building rLodge we rented other ski properties in Northstar, and they were very difficult to get into and out of on skis/boards. rLodge is actually on the run.

Beauty and Luxury in Northstar!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a couple of fantastic weeks in this amazing home nestled in the Northstar mountain resort area. Jenny was incredibly kind and helpful in every way. Any questions or concerns were handled immediately and resolved even beyond our expectations. The Home itself is a Dream for either a large family like ours or families traveling together with tons of space for everyone to either come together and hang out or retreat to for privacy. The media room was the second best place to be next to skiing on the mountain! And if all of that wasn’t enough, the Tree House was literally a hop, skip, and a jump away for swimming and soaking in the hot tub. The shuttle to/from the Highland Gondola only took a couple of minutes at most and the drivers were very quick to pick us up. The only disappointment was the lack of snow, but even Mother Nature finally kicked in with a couple of feet just before we had to leave. :) Thank you so very much for sharing this incredible home with our family!

Dream Vacation on the Slopes in Tahoe!

  • 5 of 5

This house was incredible. There was more than enough space for my group of friends to have a relaxing ski weekend in Tahoe. The house was exactly as pictured. One of the best features was the ski in/out option out of the back door of the house. Stopping back at the house for a lunch break midday was a breeze, and we could just walk out the back door and back to the slopes when we were finished. Although we went in the winter, we would certainly come again in the spring/summer and enjoy the hot tub and grilling on the deck! Thank you for a great visit!

Wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful time! We are a family with younger kids--this is the perfect place to stay and enjoy the mountain. Went swimming at the heated pool (we walked over--could not be closer, it is truly like having it in the backyard) after skiing. Excellent ski access. The home theater is super fun. Everything very well cared for and thoughtfully laid out. Hoping to return.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful stay for a family get together. The house is as beautiful as the pictures.

Waking up to that beautiful view just made it even better.

The only downside is the road up to the cabin. The winding narrowness made you a little uneasy.

Thank you Susan for allowing us to stay in this beautiful home. We made some awesome memories.

We Spent a Month at rLodge

  • 5 of 5

This is your home away from home located at mid-mountain @ Northstar. This is an excellent luxurious property wonderfully decorated and equipped magnificently with more than all the amenities you'll need, from the whole house humidifier to heated floors to great linens & pillows to a fully stocked kitchen (vitamix!), wifi, apple tvs & satellite tv in every room, your own movie theater, air hockey table, boot warmer, fire pit, hot tub, and on and on. The listing's pictures and other reviews are spot on, this is a great rental with a friendly, hospitable and quick to respond of owner. We, a family of 4, particularly enjoy the well roundedness of the property. The owners, amenities, size, convenience and quality make this a place we will frequent. We would highly recommend this property to our friends and family.

Great house for skiing and spending time together

  • 5 of 5

RLodge is a perfect place to gather for a mountain holiday. It comfortably fit 3 families (13 people). If you're used to luxury accommodations you won't be disappointed. Everything is first rate. The slope side fire pit & hot tub are fantastic. The movie theater is a treat to be experienced! Ski in ski out is awesome, but even if Homerun is closed (as it was when we were there) a private SUV is just minutes away, waiting to drop you and your gear off (and pick you up) at the Ritz or the village.

The owners were engaged and very helpful from start to finish.

Definitely the best VRBO experience I've had in more than 10 trips.
