In June 2011, after 35 ++ years in the SF Bay area, I moved to our family vacation home at Northstar. My 3 grown children and I have treasured this place and the entire area all their lives.
I just wish I'd made the move sooner. Now, as an official "local" I realize there is much more to life in Truckee and Lake Tahoe area in terms of special events, solid community organizations and a base of remarkably warm, caring, happy people, than one can understand on intermittent visits. Locals residents are remarkably happy, I think, because rich or poor, those who have chosen to stay, or deliberately moved here, are just grateful to be able enjoy this remarkable environment every day of their lives.
I'm an avid traveller, and have been to many, of the world's most interesting and beautiful cities and countries. I discovered Airbnb while travelling last winter in Costa Rica, Mexico, and Ecuador, when I stayed in a number of Airbnb homes. I could not have met so many delightful new friends, (the hostesses, other guests, and/or their friends, if not renting through airbnb. For me, this is the only way to go, as it's more economical, interesting, and fun than staying any hotel could ever be.
I provide a daily abundant "help yourself" continental breakfast, all the privacy you desire,and company if you want it. Guests are welcome to use the entire main floor, kitchen, deck, jacuzzi, etc.,You may also feel free to invite a few friends over and make yourselves at home, have a barbecue, or play horseshoes, perhaps?
If you're seeking a quiet place to read quietly, I'm surrounded by lovely, quiet grounds. If available, I'll be happy to give you a local tour, and/or suggest recommendations options, and print our maps to your destinations. depending upon your interest. I have large supply of current brochures with discounts, maps, and books to share. as well as as a solid personal knowledge of this spectacular area.
I've had countless friends and renters return to my home repeatedly over many, many years. People just seem to love it's setting on the golf course and west exposure, its overall coziness, the direct access each room has to the outside, and the floor plan, that is well designed to give guests peace, quiet, and plenty of privacy
Come join the fun and all the many amenities that Northstar at Tahoe and our phenomenal lake and surrounding communities have to offer kids of all ages!
