This is a decent place within Northstar. Great location within the entire setting of the Northstar village.. Limited parking becomes an issue. Timeshare talks. After being to many talks with other places, they seem to be priced reasonably, but yealry fees are too much.

Will stay here next time. It is a very nice place. We didn't get to ski due to extreme snow storm. But we enjoyed just being there. Even the tram ride was closed. Wish we had more days to stay so we could have went snowmobiling

First the good: Situated at the edge of Northstar, and with its own gated parking, the location could not be better. In addition, the amenities are first class - Viking appliances, advanced dishwasher and washer/dryer, and marble everywhere. Felt nicer than at home! Front office staff were friendly and helpful, and the gondola was literally less than 100 yards away....

I came here on a snowboarding trip with some friends and we had a blast. We arrived late on a Thursday night and had to use the courtesy phone to get the front desk guy but that was no issue. Check in was quick and painless. Guest parking was located in an underground garage so that was rather unexpected. I...

We visited Norhtstar last year for an owners update. I had been a quite happy owner until they managed to upset me. During our stay we purchased additional points ($15,000 worth or so) and as a thank you for our time during our presentation and I'm guessing our purchase we were issued a voucher for free trip to Hawaii. this...

We booked this hotel for the last night of our ski trip at Lake Tahoe. We had picked the hotel because of the high ratings and for the ski-in ski-out location that would allow us enough time to ski the morning before our flight out of Reno. On that morning, I stood up from the breakfast table and cut my...

We rented a two bedroom apartment in July 2016. The apartment was spacious and in mint condition. There was a pool outside that was fresh and a gym fully equipped next door to the hotel. If you like hiking or playing golf in the summer I highly recommend this place.

My husband and I recently visited the area of Truckee and North Lake Tahoe. As owners of Welk resorts we chose to stay at the Northstar location. It was late fall and we expected to see snow. We went prepared with warm clothing and tire chains, but we only saw snow one morning and it melted within hours. Since we...

Let me start off by saying this was the best resort we've ever been to. High end finishes, top of the line appliances, fireplace and tv in every room. Beautiful scenery.
