Bedrooms 4
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 3 nights


About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Playroom, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

This luxury home is located in the Exclusive Big Springs area of Northstar which is just down the "Home Run" ski-lift from the Ritz. It comes with free shuttle service to the Village and access to the Homeowner's Recreation Center. This home has an airy spacious feel with many windows and good sun. The house is very clean and is in excellent condition. The extra large covered hot-tub is fun for all after the daily adventure.

We spent an entire year living in this wonderful newer home in Northstar with our family of 6. It is the perfect mountain getaway, summer or winter. Come enjoy the woodsy setting and contemporary mountain decor. When there is enough snow, you can also ski the fire road back from the 'Home Run' trail to arrive back at the house. You can ski from the house to the Home Run lift which takes you the Ritz and mid-mountain when there is a good snow.

You can snow-shoe or hike up to the Ritz for lunch and a hot-chocolate or walk along the road. You are sure to enjoy this wonderful mountain home. Take the kids down to the village for ice-skating, the Northstar Rec Center Arcade or Hot-Chocolate.

The playroom includes a kids play area and numerous games and toys. Extra kids skis and boots are in the garage to use freely.

About Deb Kennedy

We built this lovely home in 2005 and enjoyed living in it permanently for a year with our four kids prior to returning to the Bay Area. Call me with any questions or inquiries: 925-915-1003.

Deb Kennedy purchased this house in 2005

Why Deb Kennedy chose Truckee

Newer and higher-end home near lifts. Can walk down to the village and on a good snow day, ski down to homerun lift. Northstar is a destination resort for all seasons with snow sports in the winter and great hiking and Mt. biking the rest of the year.

What makes this house unique

This is a family home and has great play areas for the kids, as well as toys and games for the entire family.

We have sleds, snow-shoes, toys, books, games etc for the kids since we have 4 kids, now ages 12-19, who spent a lot of time there since they were 5.

We had a blast! The house was perfect for our kids and grandkids!

  • 5 of 5

The house had everything we needed and was at a great location! We loved sitting in the hottub at night too. Lots of room for lots of people. Debbie was always available to answer any questions. It truly was maybe our favorite family vacation! We fell in love with Northstar!!!

Wonderful, spacious house. Perfect for two families

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely house with plenty of space for two families or more. The house was well equipped and had everything we needed. Instructions for TV and hot tub etc were thorough. Shuttle service was easy and right at the bottom of the driveway. It was really nice to have the two-car garage too, since we were there during a big snow storm.

Debbie was kind and accommodating and easy to work with. I'd stay again!

Beautiful house, quite cold

  • 4 of 5

This was a lovely house, with a ton of space for our whole group. But the house rules require the thermostat to be set to 55 at check-out, which means that that's the temperature when we checked in. And it takes a long time to heat up a house this large--it didn't feel totally warm until the following morning (one bedroom in particular--the one w/ the bunk beds--was pretty cold during our whole stay).

The house was well-stocked and felt comfortable. But it was difficult to reach Deb, particularly during the actual booking process, and then, she wasn't very responsive once we checked in. But we still had a good time and enjoyed our stay.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the feedback. The Housekeeper increased the heat to 65 degrees on both the upstairs and downstairs themostat. Sorry about the lack of responsiveness, we were on vacation at the time.

We have been coming to Northstar for over 5 yrs now with a large group. This was by far the best. It was comfortable,open, but also cozy. We have quite a few kids with us and they also loved it.

Lovely, convenient home for large family gatherings

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here - my extended family stayed (12+) and it had enough room for everyone. Kitchen was extremely well stocked with essentials like spices and appliances were great (including double oven - so helpful!). Nice common areas, plus extra space for kids to be by themselves which made everyone happier. Owner very easy to deal with and left impeccable directions. Hope to stay here again!
