This Northstar vacation rental on Bitter Brush is ideally located on a quiet side street, with sprawling golf course views making it the perfect gathering place for your next family adventure in the mountains. Beautifully situated on a grassy lot in the heart of Northstar California Resort, this two-level lodge is just blocks from the golf course and two miles from the Village and ski lifts.

Inside, the floor plan is warm and inviting. The upstairs living area takes full advantage of the sweeping views beyond while the wraparound sofa surrounding the toasty wood fireplace is the ideal spot to keep you cozy and warm during those cool high sierra evenings. Perfect for multiple families, this luxury vacation rental offers a spacious and open area for congregating or preparing gourmet meals in the fully equipped kitchen. It offers top-of-the-line Viking appliances as well as a formal dining area for the entire family to gather.

Three guest bedrooms surround the downstairs entertaining area, including the master suite which includes a king bed, flat-screen TV and en suite bath. A junior master suite is located at the entry level (between the ground and 1st floors) and includes a king bed and en suite bath as well.

Convenience, comfort and value make this property a great home base for ski trips and spring/fall/summer mountain getaways. Staying at Northstar means you don't have to worry about driving anywhere once you arrive. The resort provides a free on-site shuttle service during resort operating days, making it easy for guests to be on the slopes or shopping in the Village, playing golf or thrill seeking in the downhill mountain bike park.

We had a super time at this home. The huge kitchen, dining, living room combination and the awesome deck were perfect for a big crowd like ours. Everything was very clean, the bedroom and bathroom situation was great for handling our family of ten. All around a super experience!

Overall the house was fantastic - views off the porch wonderful in evening and for morning coffee. The layout was excellent for multiple couples. The only downside was the lack of A/C - which I understood from prior reviews. This wasn't an issue for most of the group staying there. The access to the homeowner's club facility was a plus along w/ the proximity to Northstar's mountain biking. Only issue we had on arrival was no gas for the gas grill - please make future guests aware of that situation.


Manager Response:

Thank you for reviewing the home! Future renters should note that we do provide propane for the barbecue. If the tank hooked to the grill is low, we leave another full tank in the garage for renter use. Future guests shouldn't to reach out if they think something is missing. Our staff is able to point you in the right direction or deliver a new tank for your use.

House has ample space for large family but very hot during the day due to large windows and exposure. Easy drive into Kings Beach for Tahoe beaches and Truckee Downtown. Righ off the golf course and easy access to trail heads. House cools off at night but recommend that if you stay, plan on day trips out, even deck is hot. Would still recommend, views are great from deck and cools off by early evening.

This house was perfect for our family reunion. The big main rooms combined with the big kitchen were a great hanging out place and the big deck was wonderful for relaxing and socializing as well. The sleeping arrangements were very comfortable and perfect for our combination of married couples and singles. The access to the trail system in the valley and up the hillsides was much appreciated too! It was everything we were hoping for!

Beautiful home that needs some

The location is great and the home itself was very nice but needs some attention. There were little things like a lid in the expensive fridge was coming off it's hinges. Many of the blinds did not open or close properly. The light by the hot tub blinks on and off. I changed the bulb and it still was blinking for awhile and then it was fine. Sort of strange. Would get a five star once somebody goes into the home and checks all the little things that need minor repairs.


Manager Response:

Thank you for your thorough review and helpful feedback. We had our team by the home after your departure to address the issues you mentioned. The blinds, fridge and hot tub light are all working great now, and we even re-stocked the kitchen with all new wine glasses! Can't wait to host you again soon.

This is a beautiful home with a ton of great space and a good layout for a big family (we had 8 adults and 2 kids). We especially loved the open floor plan on the main floor and the big deck overlooking the golf course. Outside, plenty of outdoor furniture, had many good times around the low round table. Inside, the sectional sofa is large, which we loved, and very comfy. Also nice loft area for the kids to play. The only things we did not like were that the beds were not very comfortable - kings much too hard, queens sagging, and having to haul our trash up to the dumpster area by car every day (gross), but otherwise, very happy here and would recommend it!


Manager Response:

Thanks for your detailed review. We are so glad to hear that this home suited your group so well! Mattresses are a really difficult item to pick for a vacation rental, so we are sorry they weren't to you liking. Because they are such a personal preference it's hard to know exactly what to buy to suit everyone. Future renters should know that we do ensure everything in the home is of quality!

our family of 10 stayed at Bitter Brush for four nights and we really enjoyed our time there. We really liked the location with views of the golf course and Martis valley. The house was clean and well appointed. The proximity to Lake Tahoe and the ability to use North Star resort facility with the pool was a plus! It was quite warm and the large fan we found in the laundry room was not working. Other then that we loved our time there and plan to return next summer!

We loved the house, and Jen from Tahoe Getaways was wonderful and responsive. We will definitely rent this house again!


3 suggestions: Install air conditioning. It was uncomfortably hot in the house. Repair sliding glass doors. Put the lock box on the side of the entrance out of the sun, the sun hit the front door, and the lock box was so hot it was hard to touch.

This place is very spacious and has lots of extras. The kitchen is full of all the essentials and more. The hot tub and view are amazing, and the pool table is a nice addition. The free shuttle is easy to use. Trash was a little issue, as it is a drive to take it out, but that is our ONLY complaint :D

This home is nicely built and situated on the golf course. However, it was too far away from the Northstar village for us (had grandkids in tow). Outside back deck would be a nice place to rest but no furniture was there! BBQ worked well, but now cleaning tools available.


Manager Response:

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay! We're glad to hear you enjoyed the peaceful golf course location. We definitely recommend using the on demand shuttle service to access the Village. During the summer months, patio furniture will be available, but we do get snow in April, so it isn't quite patio season yet!

We really enjoyed this rental although there were a couple of issues at the beginning. We did not feel the bedrooms had been cleaned properly or that the beds had been made with clean sheets. However, after telling Tahoe Getaways, they sent a team of cleaners who made a huge difference. The kitchen was very well equipped for self-catering. The TV in the main sitting room was rather old and we could not attach our Apple TV to watch films. Also, the beautiful big windows were not so beautiful in the early hours when the sun came streaming through waking us all up. Additional blackout blinds would have been welcome. For this reason alone we would not rent this home again.


Manager Response:

Thank you for taking the time to provide this feedback. Again, we are so sorry you did not feel the bedrooms were satisfactory upon arrival. I am glad we were able to get this taken care of quickly.

We really enjoyed our stay here as the house really worked for us as a family and also because my eldest daughter was in a full leg brace from a ski accident a week before! The service from the managing agents was amazing, they were very helpful especially when the dishwasher died.

Overall, the experience was good. The shuttle that runs frequently to Northstar was handy for our group.

We have stayed here twice and it is by far our favorite North Star home. Very clean and nicely furnished with everything you could need to entertain and relax! The location has beautiful views over the golf course and is an easy shuttle ride to the village. We loved staying here and hope to come again.


The perfect Spring break!

All things discribed are accurate. Located in a court and backs onto the golf course, so it's very quiet The house/kitchen is clean and amazing! Great location to Northstar Village and the shuttle service is fantastic!

We had a wonderful time staying at Bitter Brush Cabin. This cabin is spectacular. The kitchen is well stocked. The whole cabin is beautifully decorated and appointed. This is one if the nicest cabins we've stayed in the Northstar area.

Biggest snow storm in 45 years! Tahoe Getaways was great in backing us off the ledge during the power outage. I called their office at 8PM and they were still there in the dark.
