Huge resort home with shared pool. hot tub, and NPOA access
This four-bedroom, four-bathroom Truckee vacation rental puts you right next to the action while still having the privacy and comfort of a cozy home. With golf course views, tons of amenities, room for 12 guests, and lots of memories, this is the ultimate getaway.
A shuttle will escort you around the entire Northstar California Ski Resort, from the member-only NPOA that offers a game room, basketball court, fitness center, hot tub, and sauna, to the Village with its guest pass-required pool, spas, shops, and eateries, to the lifts where you can ski, board, and tube to your heart's delight. Other activities at the resort include tennis, biking, and horseback riding. Next door to this Northstar lodge is the resort's 18-hole golf course and pro shop among the mountainous landscapes.
Inside this Lake Tahoe family vacation rental, you'll be welcomed by a homey atmosphere with bright and airy rooms, natural woodwork, and soft carpeting. Fire up the gas grill on the furnished patio surrounded by Sierra trees. Head inside and warm up by the gas fireplace over mugs of cocoa.
The living room has comfy couches facing the sliding glass door so that you can get the most of the views. Plenty of media options – DVD, VCR (with a library of titles), cable, stereo and WiFi – are available. If you prefer to have fun off of the couch, head down to the garage where you can play Ping-Pong, and foosball. There's even a den downstairs and if you want a bit of exercise, take the croquet and ladder ball sets out to the lawn.
You're sure to work up an appetite, and the fully stocked kitchen provides all the tools and appliances (dishwasher, coffee maker and grinder, toaster, blender, slow cooker, microwave, etc.) you need – just supply your favorite foods! Next to the kitchen is a lovely dining table set before a bay window. Behind the dining table you'll find a wet bar for fixing cocktails once the kids have gone to bed. Centering this space is a wood-burning stove to cozy you up while the snow falls.
Once you've filled up after a fun day and chatted into the late night, you'll be glad to find four bedrooms plus a den to cuddle up in. In two of the rooms you'll find a king bed and in two others are queens. Two bedrooms have access to the raised deck while in another, a is romantic window seat offers views of the spectacular bay. And in the downstairs den, you'll have a sofa sleeper. There's plenty of room for 12!
With each bedroom comes a full bathroom. In one is a deep jetted tub for soaking in privacy. A washer and dryer are available as well.
Beyond the resort are tons of North Lake Tahoe attractions! You can't miss a visit to the lake itself at Kings Beach State Park, under eight miles away. To the east of the beach a few miles is Crystal Bay in Nevada for casino fun. In the other direction along the main highway 28 are family-friendly restaurants, a mini golf course, and many public beaches of varying personalities no more than 11 miles away from your amazing home base.
A spacious house with a big kitchen, bedrooms and bathrooms! A deck with a great view and a two car garage! I will rent this place again!

Great location and nice house.

We had a great vacation with our extended family in June 2019. The Northstar Home was perfect, because it was so roomy and also close to so many fun activities. We really enjoyed using the NPOA pool and facilities and found the staff there super helpful and friendly with our questions. We hung out in Northstar Village one night, went up on the gondola, went to King's Beach, played mini golf in town, and we even had a foursome that played Northstar. Probably most fun of all were the many card games played at the dining room table. Fun, fun, fun!

We very much enjoyed our stay. The house is well located, appointed, and layed out. Great house for a family ski trip.

Great place to stay. Master is huge!!

One of the great amenities of staying in this area (North Star) is the rec center with hot tubs, swimming pools, work out room, tennis courts, kiddy pool, arcade, etc. Free shuttle to and from the house eliminates trying to find parking on weekends.
The house itself is constructed nicely with open kitchen & dining, extending into the living area. We enjoy the floor plan of this house. All rooms have flat screen TV's.
Upstairs 2 bedrooms have their private baths and the other 2 rooms have a jack and jill bathroom.

Couldn't have been better!

Loved this house, it was perfect for me and my guests. Very large and had everything we needed!

Very nice for large family or two families. Beds are firm and comfortable. Spacious. Decor is a little dated so people looking for a luxurious experience would be disappointed. But people looking for value, convenience to village, comfort, privacy, and safe home for kids will love this home.
Martha C.Mar 2017
We were pleasantly surprised by this house. 2 families stayed for the week, and the house was well furnished with a nice layout. The Northstar free shuttle was a great perk - we used it quite often and the kids loved it. We hope to return!

Vacasa was accommodating and the rental was exactly what we expected
Pratik P.Jan 2017
Clean, with all the necessities one easy shuttle ride away from Northstar. Stay here if you can!
Robin G.Jan 2017
This is a wonderful roomy ski rental with tons of space and every amenity for a comfortable stay. We loved it. Furnishings are dated but add to the ski cabin ambience. Two families with four kids and we had plenty of space and loved our stay.
Norah K.Dec 2016
This home was great for our family get together. A few minor issues, but overall very happy with the home and hope we can return in the future. Kitchen was well stocked and loved all the games and activities for the kids. It is the little things that make it special.
Patricia H.Nov 2016
Beautiful home and location good for two families.
Dale G.Oct 2016
This place is great. We were on a golfers vacation and the location was perfect for Incline and Truckee courses. Really suits 4 older men or couples well.
Sherry J.Oct 2016
It was a beautiful time of the year. The views from the house overlooking the 18th hole were astonishing.
Germain B.Oct 2016
A lovely home, roomy, well appointed, very comfortable. Our party of 10 had plenty of room! We especially enjoyed the ping pong table in the garage as well as the easy access to the Village at Northstar.
Shadi N.Sep 2016
Overall my family and I had a good time and the house was very clean and accommodating. There are a few things that can be improved: 1) Dishwasher is not cleaning the dishes really well and we had to run it several times until they were clean. 2) One of the beds in the rooms that share a same bathroom, makes alot of noise and it is really hard to sleep on it when it is really noisy every time you move around on it. 3) Toaster is not working 4) We had a drain clog in the bathtub that the two rooms share and we asked to have someone to come and fix it for us but no one came while we were staying there and I never got a call regarding it!
We apologize for the inconveniences this guest experienced while staying with us. The Property Manager has unclogged the agitator in the dishwasher so it is working much better now. The toaster has been fixed, and the shower drain has been cleared. Thanks!

If being a little far from the lake shore is not an issue, this property is beautiful and complete.
Thomas R.Aug 2016
The property was perfect for our family stay. Found everything we needed to do a Saturday evening barbeque. Individual rooms were fantastic...perfect for my four children and myself. Property was in a quiet spot but close to all of the things we did for the weekend, like golfing, swimming, a trip down to the lake.
Ron T.Aug 2016
We were on our annual staff retreat and found the house to be very well equipped with fast internet, hdmi tv's, and plenty of meeting space. We really liked the open floor plan which allowed us to have meetings over meals as well as in the living room. All of our staff agreed that this house accommodated our needs and want to return.
John G.Aug 2016
The home was lovely. Air conditioning would have been appreciated. As linens were to be provided, wash cloths would have been appreciated.
Margaret M.Jul 2016
Large size rooms and large working area in kitchen
Sara G.Jul 2016
Great house, perfect for multi family or large family trips. Our group of four families had a great trip!
JOHN B.Jul 2016
Super clean. Comfortable and well furnished.
Samuel M.Apr 2016
The location and layout of this house is perfect for that summer or winter getaway with the family. Close to amenities and minutes from Truckee and Norstar. You next trip should definitely include a stay at this home.
Douglas P.Mar 2016
We have rented many houses over the years and this was the best. Large, great layout, firm mattresses, clear instructions, etc. The kitchen was well equipped and had everything we needed to cook great meals. House was very clean and everything worked. Shuttle to Northstar was fast and easy. On the down side there was no laundry detergent and it took us leaving several messages over several days before getting a return call. Other than that we would return to this house. p.s. I agree with an earlier review that the TV in the great room could be bigger.
We apologize that we were difficult to reach; we are currently hiring and training more agents to work on the phones so it's an easier process to meet our guests' needs. We will also make sure that housekeeping leaves laundry detergent for guest use.
MELISSA O.Feb 2016
The home was conveniently close to the North Star resort that was a +++!! The overall cleanliness and maintenance of the home when we checked in was not up to our standards as we waited for a good 2 hours before housekeeping came to clean the home. The furnishings and décor of the house can be updated as well as the tv downstairs can be bigger. Overall we would stay here again, but just some minor changes and maintenance could be done.
Thank you for your review. We are so sorry that the home had not been properly cleaned prior to your arrival, and we want to thank you for your patience as we rectified the matter. The Property Manager has been advised of your suggestions for the condo and will keep them in mind for future improvements. We hope to see you again!
Mark A.Feb 2016
Great place for a large group or large family. It had everything we needed and more. The ping pong and foosball table in the garage was a plus.
Colleen M.Feb 2016
We had 9 adults and 3 small kids in our group & everyone loved the house. Getting to Northstar was an easy 5-min shuttle ride: you call when you want to get picked up at the house and they come on demand. Already looking forward to coming back next year!
Vivienne H.Jan 2016
This was a perfect house for our situation - skiing at Northstar and proximity to shopping and good food! The house was beautiful with a very well stocked kitchen and pantry. Having breakfast before heading out was easy and enjoyable. Best of all, it's located on the shuttle route of Northstar resort, so we just called a number and Northstar shuttle came to the door to pick us up, along with all the equipment. Drop off at the door afterwards too. Can't beat that!
Lots to do in the house too. Kids played ping pong, foosball, board games and sledding in the backyard. Our non skiers enjoyed shopping and massages in Truckee and Tahoe City, so everyone was happy.
We look forward to returning!
Stacey B.Dec 2015
We rented the house for Thanksgiving, bring up food and cooking supplies. Upon arriving we were pleasantly surprised at how well stocked the kitchen was. The house has a perfect layout for 2 (or more) families, with separate areas for kids. We loved the house!
