We booked a different property through "The Lodging Company" but according to the check in staff, we were upgraded to the Starfire Unit 1988. We had a 3BR/3Bth unit. It is located near the Lakeside Village and a short drive to the Mountain House base area and a few minutes longer to the River Run Village. There was a shuttle stop, but the walk was pretty far and we chose to drive in each day. There is free parking at the River Run Village, but the Mountain House lot cost $20/day.
The unit has a single car garage, but it was pretty narrow and we didn't use it. Only one car is allowed per unit. The unit is three levels - the first level had a large mud room at the entry with a bench for taking off boots and storage for gloves, hats, etc. Ski storage was in the garage. Plenty of hooks for hanging ski jackets, too. The tile floor was heated to quickly dry water from shoes/boots. There was one bedroom and a full bath on the first floor. The second floor has the family room, kitchen, dining area, deck access, a bedroom with two single beds and a full bath. The third floor had a bedroom with king sized bed, full bath and a loft with a small pull out sofa and seating area. There was also an apartment sized washer/dryer in a closet. Closet space was excellent - we had a large walk in closet in the master upstairs and the other bedrooms had generous closets. Bathrooms were also large and so was the kitchen. The family room was a little small and the sofas were not that comfortable.
The bathrooms appeared to have been recently remodeled and were in excellent shape with attractive styling. The master had a large tub and a walk in shower. The only problem was that there was no seal under the shower door and water tended to leak onto the floor.
The kitchen was large with ample storage. The appliances were new with a gas stove (nice), dishwasher, deep sink and large side by side refrigerator. The utensils were adequate, but not the best.
The resort assesses a $15+tax per day resort fee which includes free internet and use of the hot tub facilities. Maid service was available for additional fee and we had to ask for a midweek towel change.
Sleep quality was OK. The beds were comfortable, but we didn't like the pillows. That's just personal preference, though.
Pros: large rooms, new appliances, modern baths and kitchens, good internet, LOTS of outlets, good mud room
Cons: long walk to shuttle, uncomfortable sofas
