DESCRIPTION: Boulder Shores is your perfect Lakefront vacation spot. Located just off State Route 28 near Crystal Bay, the home is situated in a private, secluded, gated neighborhood of only eight custom homes. Guests enjoy unbelievable, panoramic lake views of North Lake Tahoe all the way down to the South Shore. There is easy boating access with a deep-water dock and owner-buoy to moor your boat. After a day on the lake, there is ample room for everyone in the updated kitchen with granite counters and a large central cooking island with 5 bar stools. The large table in the dining room will seat 12 or more people. The kitchen offers anything a gourmet chef could need to create a memorable feast. It is perhaps the best-stocked kitchen we have on our program. This charming Lakefront home has many upgrades throughout, creating a peaceful, serene and fabulously fun retreat. From the rear deck, you will be impressed by the massive granite boulders going down to the lake, hence the property name - Boulder Shores. Although there is no sandy beach, there is a short, private winding walkway leading to the large community dock and pier where guests can sunbathe and fish off the deck, jump into the lake from the long jetties or simply relax while enjoying a spectacular sunset. You will also find a secluded swim deck nestled in the boulders for private sunbathing or quiet moments. Swimming in the lake is refreshing in July through September; however, bring your wetsuits if you tend to get cold. For more privacy, the home's main deck has two small overhanging platforms situated under the massive pine trees for an intimate getaway. LAYOUT: Situated on a down sloping lot leading to the lake, the driveway is level entering the top floor garage with enough parking for four cars, two in the garage and two on the driveway. Alternate parking is curbside. From the garage, you can take the elevator to the two floors below or walk down the steps to the top floor entry. The elevator's first stop is the main entry where four of the five bedrooms are located. Three rooms have king size beds, two with a trundle or sofa bed, with sliding glass doors to the top deck. The fourth has bunks for four or five children and/or adults. There is also a sofa bed in the entry. Take the elevator or walk down to the lower level where you will find a new pool table in the large open great room encompassing the living, kitchen and dining areas. The master bedroom is located on this floor featuring a king size bed, cozy sitting corner overlooking the lake and a newly remodeled luxurious bathroom. Easy entry to the rear deck is available from three sliding glass doors on this level. All the bathrooms were recently remodeled, four featuring elegant granite counters and travertine tile. ENTERTAINMENT: Boulder Shores offers many updated electronics. There are flat screen TVâ€™s in every bedroom and a 47" flat screen over the gas fireplace in the living room, with upgraded Cable, DVD and IPod stereo dock. PETS: This home is pet friendly with one or two dogs only. Extra charges apply of $25 per night per dog plus $25 additional cleaning fee. COMMENTS: Please note, although the Homeowners Association contracts yearly with a snow removal company, the access road to Boulder Shores is a steep switchback. All-Wheel Drive vehicles are advised and chains may be required. Prices are subject to change and all groups must have adult members over 25 years of age. There is no smoking on or around the property at any time.

Not such a "Happy Birthday"- This was a planned birthday trip for me and my visiting family who flew 6 hours the previous day. The unit itself was great. However, gaining access into it was a nightmare for us and the onsite manager, whom we had to wake at 11 p.m. since we were not given a correct combination to access the house key. This was not a fun task in the pitch dark and with elderly patrons in our group. Furthermore, the onsite manager had trouble reaching the Pullen Realty Group from which we rented the unit. We were finally given a correct code to access the key. Unfortunately, it was time to check out and leave.
The Northstar Getaway is the ideal Tahoe cabin! We will definitely go back!
House was great for our group of 15 people. Beds were comfortable and clean. Kitchen stocked for our basic cooking and the location was great in terms of being close to the ski resort (Northstar) we were skiing at as well as being within 15 mins of the restaurants in Truckee. Would definitely return!
The property itself was alright. It's large and spacious which makes it great for big groups. The showers provided inconsistent water temperature when two people are using the bathrooms; While there are three baths, I would recommend using the shower one at a time.
It's definitely designed more for a family considering the mini pool table (emphasis mini! it's in the property description!). That being said, the mini pool table was essentially unusable. It was missing one ball. The air-hockey didn't work well and most of the ping pong balls were cracked.
If you're just looking for a place to stay for a fair price while you spend most of your time on the mountain or out, this is for you. Don't expect it to be a luxurious stay.
We had an amazing trip. The house is more impressive than it appears in the photos. It has an ideal layout for multiple families (2 masters) and great amenities, including: gourmet kitchen, washer/dryer, pool and foosball tables, Sonos sound system, Cable TV w/ DVR, etc. The Pullen Group was also very helpful and responsive.
The reservation was canceled 55 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Fantastic! One of the nicest places I have ever been. Great stay.
We had such a great time in this place. I must say the pictures don't do enough justice on this place. The house was more luxurious than what we had guessed through the pictures. For example, some details that will not be captured by the pictures: high quality of dishes, towels, bedding material, etc.
If we come back to Truckee, we will come back to this place.
In one phrase: This place was very clean, neat, and luxurious.
