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 warm up and relax with friends, then jump into the huge hot tub to renew and refresh 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, fire pit and hot tub 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 Lake Tahoe North Shore CA

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

* Huge hot tub


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.

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.

Absolutely Amazing Ski In- Ski Out Luxury Home

  • 5 of 5

Our first experience arriving to rLodge was was almost storybook. After arriving at nearby Reno Airport, a short drive brought us through beautiful Lake Tahoe to the beautiful upscale Northstar Resort. Northstar is the perfect resort for couples and families of all sizes. The resort offers something for everyone. Between shopping, dining, and entertainment in the Village...The amenities, dining, and service of the Ritz Carleton Hotel and Spa....And, the amazing beauty and expanse of the snow covered runs of the Resort...There is no reason to ever leave the resort. The best part is that the rLodge, while offering privacy and amazing natural views unobstructed by other homes and condos, is incredibly convenient to all the activities in the resort. Upon our arrival the first of many of the simple pleasures of the rLodge became apparent. For days the area had been receiving a massive snowfall. It was truly beautiful and the snow was piling up quickly on the edges of the road and on the secondary roads. The rLodge is located at the downhill point of a small upscale neighborhood. Even though the rLodge offers privacy and unobstructed views, the drive there is totally on primary maintained roads so the arrival was as simple driving up, pressing the garage door opener, then driving into an cozy heated garage to unpack. The home is located just downhill from the Ritz Carleton and just uphill from the Northstar Villiage right on the Home Run. Both are connected by the Gondola which conveniently runs day and night. The rLogde did not disappoint as it turned out to be one of the most beautiful mountain homes I've ever seen. All of the appliances and furnishings were absolute first class and the home easily swallowed our group of two families and children with room left over for Nannies. In the morning, after soaking up the incredible view with a hot cup of coffee, we all simply pulled the gloves and boots off the heating rack in the ready room, strapped in and began our amazing adventure literally boarding and skiing right out the back door straight down Home Run and right into the Village Gondola. After an incredible day on the mountain, the Apres Ski Party grew as one by one everyone skied back home right into the patio area where the beautiful rock fire pit was burning, hot tup steaming, and smores on the fire with drinks and appetizers for all. I could go on for pages about all the wonderful times we had enjoying the rLodge, but I'm out of room.

Great place to stay @ Northstar - Big Groups

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I planned a Tahoe trip with 3 other couples that included a week-long stay at rLodge in late February... and we LOVED it!

The property is immaculately kept and is perfectly located on "Homerun" @ Northstar Mountain so you can board-in and out. (We're snowboarders) What's more is that you can literally walk to the Ritz Carlton from the property so you have all the benefits of having a 5-star hotel around the corner. Don't worry though... It's not so close that you have hotel guests creeping around the house. I should also mention that the other Homerun residences are ultra high-end (just like rLodge) so you needn't worry about rowdies renting the other properties around you.

The house has an amazing movie theater with 2 rows of powered/reclining leather chairs... However, we preferred the fuzzy/furry beanbag chairs in the front row. I think they're for kids but who cares!? The kitchen is huge and has everything you would ever want so If you plan on hitting Whole Foods beforehand like we did; you're all set.

I should probably mention the spa and natural gas fire pit outback. We sat by the fire in the morning before we went boarding with a cup of coffee and the view is amazing! Great way to start the day. At night we turned the fire back on and used the heated spa.

As far as the logistics go... The owners are very nice and they emailed us a list of instructions in advance for everything so there were no mysteries when we arrived. We knew where the keys were and how to turn everything off and on.

I highly recommend staying here!

Best ski vaycay ever!!

  • 5 of 5

It's not often that a rental home exceeds one's expectations, but rLodge did exactly that! The home was exactly as promised and the location was truly a HomeRun! We have rented ski-in/out homes before, but never as convenient as this. To be able to ski home, even for lunch, literally to your back door, place your boots and mitts on a massive boot warmer, then head out to the slopes again, was simply fabulous! And for apres-ski, the kids (and adults) chilled out in the most amazing home theater room! The oversized fur beanbag chairs were popular with the kids, while the adults dozed in [one of the 12!] lovely recliners. The hot tub was a treat too - heated around the clock, so no waiting for it to warm up! We also enjoyed a well-deserved drink or two by the outdoor fire pit after a tough day, while watching other skiers head down Home Run to the gondola. Other highlights: built-in Miele espresso machine to kick start the mornings, awesome master bedroom steam shower, dual dishwashers and laundry, flat-screen TVs in the bathrooms, gorgeous fireplace in great room...truly an impeccable home, beautifully and tastefully-decorated with all the modern conveniences. Owners were lovely - friendly and responsive. We can't wait to go back!!
