Simply Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

What a great experience it was to stay at Camp Barsi! The home is pretty much perfect, possibly even nicer than the pictures which is saying something. The floor plan is very open with lots of natural light. The house was immaculately clean with comfortable furniture throughout. Worth every penny!!!!

Nice house but many issues.

  • 1 of 5

While the house is definitely beautiful, there were some major concerns during our stay. The house was not clean: there was a used & dirty razor in the kids shower, a load of laundry still in the dryer, the oven was filthy to the point that we could not use it. The master bedroom has no drapes at all so if you have any light sensitivity please know that they provide 2 eye masks as a solution. The owner was very upset when we brought all of this to her attention and she sent several emails that were extremely inappropriate and very rude.

Owner's Response: Reviews are meant to be helpful to travelers, not falsely misrepresent experiences for spiteful purposes beyond the owners control. Since it is not productive to publicly go back-and-forth recounting, defending and shedding light on what *really* happened, please let all of the other previous 5-star reviews (over this single and completely bogus 1-star rating) speak the real truth on their own. Thank you

Gorgeous home - fantastic stay

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home was a perfect home base for our recent Northstar ski trip. We had more than enough space for two families (4 adults, 3 kids) and all our ski and snow gear. The kitchen was spectacular, with beautiful high-end appliances - love that range hood! - and fully stocked with cookware and serveware. The common areas were fantastic as well - the kids loved having their own space upstairs while we had cocktails by the fire in the living room - but we all ended up playing pool in the rec room at the end of the night! We also appreciated the wonderful staff and service at the Schaffer's Mill clubhouse, and used the ski shuttle almost daily. Finally, the information provided by the owner regarding how to use the gate entry, thermostat, fireplace, TV, etc. was useful, concise and easy to understand. In short, staying in this lovely home was a pleasure, and we look forward to staying there again next time we are in Truckee! Thank you Barsi family!

Special home in a spectacular setting!

  • 5 of 5

The Barsi home has it all! We loved the location-- near Truckee, Lake Tahoe and Donner Lake. The golf course setting is so beautiful, I was happy to ride along while my husband played golf. The home itself is luxurious but comfortable. The living room accordion doors are truly special as they bring the outdoors in. The kitchen is every cook's dream with all the high end appliances in an open setting. After busy days boating, hiking and biking, our family with teenage boys couldn't wait to get back to the house to relax by the fire pit, soak in the hot tub and play pool. Being from Chicago, this was our first time to Lake Tahoe and we can't wait to come back to Tahoe and Camp Barsi!

Perfect Home!!

  • 5 of 5

First of all, this home is absolutely beautiful. I was quickly complimented by the other 2 families we were vacationing with and asked to plan all of their future vacations because I found such an awesome place for us to stay. This home accommodated all of us very comfortably. The kids loved the bunk room and the 2nd floor game room. Meals were a breeze to serve the large group because of the huge kitchen table and island.

The proximity to Northstar made our morning commute to skiing super easy. Also, being so close to Truckee, was great for a night out or quickly picking up groceries.

I couldn't recommend this home more. We'd love to come back for another ski trip or summer trip.

Lastly, the owner was extremely responsive and helpful. Thank you for allowing us to stay!!

Absolutely gorgeous and luxurious home!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family and friends enjoyed a long weekend of skiing and fun in this stunning home. The kitchen, dining and great room areas are grand, and allow for everyone to be together while cooking, eating, drinking, listening to music with fire in the fireplace. Every modern appliance, awesome sound system, great hot tub!! Lots of space. Huge bunk room for the kids. Every bedroom with en suite bathroom. Truly lovely.
