The house was clean, spacious yet private (3 full baths), very well stocked, minutes away from the ski resort. Shuttle service was quick and friendly. We truly enjoyed our time there.

It was a bit more expensive than we had expected (fees added up). The communication was efficient via email, but there was not a phone number for me to call directly if I need a quick answer (I did get an answer in a day or two later).

All in all, highly recommend this wonderful house.

This is a nice house that two suits two families with three children each.
Maritza C. Jul 2021
The house was great, we loved the location. The environment and atmosphere was lovely. It is in perfect location as it is very close to the lake, but one of the rooms upstairs did not have lighting, the walls were paper thin so you can hear everything, and the over did not work for us.
Manager response:
Hello Maritza, we're glad to hear that the home suited your needs. The convenient location does also bring some added noise, and we apologize for any disruption this caused during your visit.

Lovely home. Perfect for large groups. Short drive from hiking and beach.

It was bit dusty in the house I think coz of the carpet
Manager response:
We apologize for any dusty areas and will check for this when we clean. Thank you!
Allison L. Jul 2020
Great for large groups ! The only issue my party ran into was that the hot tub was broken. Other than that great stay.
Manager response:
Hi, Allison! We are glad you enjoyed your stay and apologize if we missed informing you that the hot tub is closed. All short term rentals in Northlake Tahoe have to close their hot tubs due to COVID-19 restrictions. Thank you!
Luis M. Jul 2020
Loved staying here for the weekend! Such an amazing relaxing place, with everything you will need to have a perfect weekend! Only complaint I had was that the place had no AC, but the owner did bring us a fan, and at night it got cold enough for us to not mind anymore! Other than that communication was excellent and it was such a perfect stay!
Manager response:
Luis, thank you for your review. To clarify, this home does not have AC as an advertised amenity. We are happy to hear that the owner was able to drop off a fan to help combat the July heat. We hope to host you again in the future!

Very comfortable house. Everything you want right there. Shuttle bus picks you up and drop you off at the front door. i recommend this place highly.

This is a beautiful area to visit. Vacasa was most helpful to deal with in securing rental properties. Would do it again.

I recommend this home to others!

The location to North Star Village if you are going for a ski/ride weekend is great. The shuttle is super convenient and the house has all the amenities for a great stay. The kitchen supplies are great for cooking needs. The hot tub is in great shape. Furnishings are simple and a bit dated, but all was very clean - and that really is the most important for a family weekend! Would definitely stay at this home in the future.
Dennis S. Jan 2017
We loved this house for our Christmas get-together. It was so warm and welcoming. With 8 adults, 2 teens and a 2-yr old, we appreciated the variety of sleep arragements and having 3 bathrooms to choose from. The shuttle service to the Village was a plus - so convenient. We'd definitely book this place again if the occasion arises.

It snowed while we were there and it was beautiful and the cabin was nice too.. they even had snow plow clearing out everyone's driveways around 10 am or so...
Cristopher O. Jul 2016
Great location, clean cabin, the hot tub was a nice touch.
Emily W. Feb 2016
Great place, lots of bedrooms and bathrooms for us. Free shuttle to Northstar skiing and village. Kitchen is well stocked. Nice, new dishwasher. Hot tub was great after a day of skiing.
Alison J. Jan 2016
Would not pay a dime more for this rental. Do not overpay for this rental on a holiday weekend! Nice property on the outside and location was great. Busses to North Star village were quick, convenient and drivers were courteous. Interior furnishings were old and shabby. Dirty old carpeting through out. Two bedrooms upstairs had two sets of bunks and two twins. Downstairs bedrooms are tiny; one has a king bed and the other a full size bed. No en suite bathrooms. We were two families traveling with five children four and under. This property was not ideal for us but would work for families with older children.

The house was great and met our needs perfectly!
Eugene N. Dec 2015
The cabin was wonderful. We traveled with 2 families including 4 children and everyone loved everything. Bathrooms were very clean, bedrooms were very well kept, kitchen was great, fireplace was beautiful....the list goes on. With 16 inches of snowfall, it was right out of a christmas story! Not to be forgotten was the free shuttle service. Definitely a trip to remember!!

Our group stayed here for the weekend when we participated in the Tough Mudder at Northstar. We walked to Northstar in the morning because we weren't sure how the shuttles were timed or where the pick up was, but after completing the course we took the Northstar shuttle back to the property and the driver dropped us off right at the driveway. We loved that there were 3 full bathrooms for everyone to get cleaned up in a timely fashion. The hot tub was fantastic -- clean, functioned well, jets were nice, fit 6 people fairly comfortably (although a little tight on leg room) -- and it was just what we needed after getting beat up in the Mudder. The beds were a little firm, but not too bad. The pillows, on the other hand, were flat and not comfortable at all... would recommend bringing your own pillows if you can.

The house keeping crew did a fantastic job. everything look resort-like down to the details of fanned tissues. The property was clean and well-maintained.

We stayed here with another family in January 2015, 4 adults and 4 kids. It was the perfect size and great location (convenient shuttle to Northstar!). Everything was clean and well stocked. The hot tub was clean and ready to go. The 2 downstairs renovated bathrooms were great and the kitchen was nice too! The only thing with the property that we didn't like was the upstairs bathroom that the kids used was completely carpeted and should be renovated (or at least carpet removed). Other than that, we really enjoyed our stay and wouldn't hesitate to stay again!
Brady M. Jan 2015
It was a perfect location to get to the Village! I wouldn't call this a luxury home, but it is a very cozy home. The upstairs was not remodeled at all and most of the furnishings were 80's oak and inexpensive and the upstairs bath was old, but clean and had wall to wall carpet. The loft really isn't a loft but more of an extra large landing at the top if the stairs with doors to the two bedrooms off of it...the explanation made you feel like it was a private-ish space, which it is not. The kitchen, however, was great, although small, was extremely well stocked with nice dishes and silverware and just about anything we needed. Both down stairs bathrooms were nicely remodeled as was the laundry room. Overall we had a great time in this home!

Great home and perfect for 2 families!
Patricia W. Jul 2013
Everything with this rental experience went "without a hitch"...from the rental process itself to the lovely home! The property was exactly as promised - great setting, well-stocked amenities, very clean with ample (and extra!) supplies of everything we could have needed. We remarked many times over the long weekend how well thought through the kitchen was and how much we appreciated the clean, organized, stocked cabinets. The hot tub was also beautifully maintained and ready for use. We also used the beautiful Northstar Rec Center and were welcomed there as if we were long-time members. Thanks for a great time!
