About the Unit

The Eagles Nest is an upscale, professionally decorated Big Springs home with 4 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms and a private outdoor hot tub. The EaglesNest is ideal for a gathering of friends and family, with soaring cathedral ceilings throughout, a giant wood burning fireplace fashioned from huge stones, and light streaming in through abundant windows. You will be greeted by beautiful slate floors, original oil paintings and fine leather furniture in the common areas. Enjoy the silence and extreme comfort of hydronic radiant heating throughout plus free high speed wi-fi. If you're visiting in the summer, you'll enjoy the central air conditioning, a very rare feature in this region.
The chef’s kitchen features granite countertops, a Viking 6 burner cooktop, stainless steel fridge, freezer, microwave oven, conventional oven and convection oven, dual sinks, Belgian waffle maker, slow cooker, hand mixer, blender, toaster, toaster oven and all the pots, pans and cooking utensils you could possibly need. 3 coffee makers help you get just what you want in the morning: Keurig maker, traditional Cuisinart coffee maker, and an espresso maker. The great room has a 42 inch plasma TV with DVD player, DirecTV, and theater sound. Elsewhere on the main floor, a billiards table is accompanied by a wet bar. An alcove has its own gas fireplace, a TV on which kids can watch DVDs and a laser printer/photo copier/fax machine. The dining room table seats 12 and the breakfast bar seats an additional 6. Upstairs is a common area with couch that folds into a very comfortable queen sized bed (no really, it's amazing and not your typical terrible sofa bed) and a 40 inch LCD TV that can be used for watching DVDs or playing video games (if you bring your own console). A laundry room offers high end, large capacity Kenmore washer and dryer. The garage has room for 2 cars, a 240V receptacle for your electric vehicle, and contains firewood you are free to use. Off the garage you’ll find the mudroom is perfect for storing coats, boots and the like. On the stone patio, enjoy the private hot tub—which seats 4 adults—and barbecue using the huge stainless steel Weber gas grill.
Bedrooms and stairways have luxurious carpet installed in late 2012. Bedrooms each have their own private bathroom en suite and feature top quality new mattresses, high thread count bedding, bathrobes and Turkish cotton towels to make you comfortable. The master suite features a king bed, gas fireplace, balcony, jetted spa tub and standing shower. The second bedroom features a queen bed and private bathroom. The third bedroom has a king bed and private bathroom. The fourth bedroom has 3 bunk beds (to sleep 6) plus a bathroom. The upstairs common area has a queen sized sleeper sofa that is remarkably comfortable and firm and 89 inches in length--not your usual flimsy, terrible fold out couch where your feet hang off the end.
Situated on half of an acre on a private cul-de-sac in the prestigious Big Springs neighborhood above the Village, Eagles Nest is a 10-minute walk (or a 1-minute drive) to the Timberline chair lift. The property features a grass backyard and natural forest and backs up to the Tompkins Memorial hiking trail. The Northstar shuttle service will pick up your group at the end of the driveway—just call and the shuttle usually arrives within minutes—and take you to the Village or recreation center for free. The rec center—available to guests for just $2 per visit—offers multiple swimming pools, a huge hot tub, a gym and, in the summer, tennis courts. The Northstar Village offers several great restaurants and bars, an ice-skating / roller-skating rink, a movie theater, a Starbucks and plenty of shopping. From The Eagles Nest, you may walk / hike down to the Village in less than 10 minutes on hiking paths and a natural stone stairway maintained by Northstar (though the path is not suitable for the frail or elderly nor when snow is on the ground).
If you do not bring a pet, we do not require a security deposit. Instead, we include a $59 insurance policy in every rental that covers $1,500 of property damage. If you do want to bring a pet, please request approval of the owner when you inquire; bringing a pet necessitates a $2,000 refundable security deposit because the above-mentioned insurance only covers damage by people and does not cover damage by pets.
Enjoy 8pm checkout on Sundays January through May. Wrap up your day of fun, shower and refresh, and drive back after some of the traffic has eased!

Wonderful home to make winter memories
Eagles Nest was perfect for our family of 10 over a long weekend. With 4 children under 5 the bunk bed room was ideal and a real hit and each set of parents had the privacy of their own bath.The house had everything we needed, including a fully equipped kitchen, pool table, sled, close proximity to the village, with prompt shuttle service and even heated floors throughout! We enjoyed a weekend of memories skiing, sledding, several dips in hot tub, playing pool and even building a snow fort. The owner was wonderful to work with, accommodating and timely in response to questions. We loved our time together which was made extra special by this wonderful home. We plan to return. Easily a 5 star property.

We could not have been happier with Eagle's Nest! Ringing in the new year here was wonderful. The house has everything! The owner was fabulous to work with, too. This is definitely a 5-star property.

Nicest house We have ever rented
Huge and gorgeous home. The heated floors throughout were a wonderful bonus. Also couldn't have lived without the hot tub and shuttle. The owner was very accommodating with our questions. Would stay there again in a heartbeat.

Great Place to Bring the Entire Family to Relax
We came up for the Easter/Passover weekend with my son and his wife and my daughter and my wife. It was a great weekend for the entire family. We did not even begin to fill the house. The quality of the house is off the charts. The kitchen has everything you might need and then some. The pool table was great and got some use by my son, daughter and i. There are great hiking trails nearby and you are very close to the Northstar village where there is all sorts of shopping and eating establishments. We will definitely want to come back. It even snowed while we were there which made it magical.

High quality home, neighborhood and resort!
Awesome Memorial Day getaway! We had 6 adults and two small children and there was plenty of room for all. The house was perfect! There's even a box of toys for small children to play. The walk to Northstar resort was short and the amenities there were great. We will be back.

The Eagles Nest is absolutely incredible. the fit and finish are first rate and provides everything you could possibly need. At first I wasn't sure if I would like staying outside of the village, but the ability to pick up the phone and have a tram at your door in 5 minutes made it so much better. Next time we go to Northstar, this is the only place I would consider staying. WELL worth the money!

Wonderful home
The house is as beautiful as described and pictured. This is a wonderful home for a large group that would like to be together, but have a sense of privacy at the end of the day. The way the house is laid out it allows for privacy in the bedrooms. The games for the younger children were greatly appreciated by children and parents alike as we had 5 children 5 and under with us, but the pool table was enjoyed by everyone else. The shuttle to and from Northstar is an excellent service with friendly drivers that is incredibly convenient. Finally the hot tub was an excellent way to soak the achey body at the end of the day after skiing/boarding. This is a beautiful home that was enjoyed by all. My 3 year old daughter wanted to know "when are we going back to our new house?!" Thank you for sharing with us! Holly Group of 14

Wonderful Winter Getaway
Eagles Nest was the perfect home to rent while staying in Northstar for our daughters wedding. Beautiful kitchen with enough room for seating a large group at the dining room table. Especially enjoyed the pool table and hot tub. It was nice that every bedroom has a separate bathroom. The heated tile floors were an added bonus. Also loved the shuttle service-so easy to get to the village and gondola.

A great family-friendly home close to th Northstar Village and the slopes
My family spent a long weekend at this awesome home in Northstar. We were a combination of young children, young adults, young parents, and older parents. Not only was the layout perfect for us, but the place was in great condition and designed for short-term renters like us. If you're looking the perfect place to stay in Northstar, the Eagles Nest is it! It has a hot tub, pool table, open layout, and all the desired amenities. Plus, everything in the house is labeled so you know where things are and where they are supposed to go. Thanks again!
