About Sharon Vaughan

A former long-time Apple employee, Sharon is a mother of three who realized that her family's amazing memories in their Tahoe vacation home should be shared with others.

Sharon Vaughan purchased this house in 2001

Why Sharon Vaughan chose Lake Tahoe North Shore CA

My family purchased this vacation home in 2001 because we loved to ski and spend family vacations in Tahoe. We loved the Tahoe Donner Ski Area when the kids were learning to ski and the convenience of a 5 minute drive. We like the convenience of Northstar, Squaw, and Alpine resorts are so close. We live in the Bay Area so it's a quick trip to the mountains and the relaxation of a beautiful home. The amenities are exceptional too!

What makes this house unique

This home provides a tranquil peace from the moment you enter the door. Upstairs the great room combines a mountain home spaciousness with fun game table and kitchen conversation. You can be cooking in the kitchen, chat with friends sitting at the counter bar stools, and watch the fire sparkle in the fireplace. Amemenities galore - there are lots of activities to choose from. In the backyard is a level lot to play in snow in the winter and create your own sledding hills, use our provided sleds. In the summertime, sit on the deck and watch the golfers go by from the backyard decks. Make a tee time and join in the fun!

We love this beautiful place so much. Big, gorgeous, and clean. It is a winter wonderland! While here in APRIL we got over a foot of snow! Breathtaking and epic! This is our second time here and we will book again next year! The owners are very accommodating and contact you back almost immediately! Great memories were made here!

Beautiful spacious home, equipped with everything.

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our group. There was an immense amount of snow and we were able to walk out the backdoor and within minutes we were on the golf course where we were able to snowshoe for hours. We didn't have kids with us but if we did there was an abundance of snow toys in the garage that were accessible. The house felt new and clean and was well equipped with everything we needed. We made a gourmet dinner and loved the long peninsula in the kitchen where everyone could help prep and serve. The table easily seats 10 people which was awesome.

Wonderful! Cozy winter home!

  • 5 of 5

My family and friends stayed here from Feb 19-21. It is spacious and clean, in a very convenient location close to town, near Northstar ski resort, and has a gorgeous landscape. Our families played outside on the snow and played games at night. This place is fully equipped for 12 (if not more) and you can tell the owners really care about this place and put thought into stocking it! The owner was so easy to deal with and we had no issues!! I give this place the highest rating!

Fantastic very upscale beautiful home. Far nicer than pictures show. We will be back.

  • 5 of 5

Our entire family thoroughly loved the home. Very clean, high end and well maintained. Plenty of room for extended family with plenty of bathrooms and showers to accommodate our large group. Donner ski slope, which is a great ski resort to learn at or practice ones skills after a long layoff, is literally minutes away. We woke up the last morning to a moderate covering of snow that fell over night. The snow plow showed up mid morning making it easy for our one two wheel drive vehicle to get on the road. Our mid January stay was exactly as we had hoped, relaxing and magical. We will be back.

Wonderful property

  • 5 of 5

This was such a beautiful property. We had four families and the four bedrooms with 4 bathrooms worked out perfectly for us. Everything was so thoughtfully put together. The property is in immaculate condition with nice furniture and accents. The property is only 10 minutes away from Tahoe Donner which was really convenient. We would definitely stay again.
