Staying here for bike race. Room is very average for the price. Very small bathroom and not much of a view for $230. Lift is being repaired so they should be providing discounted rates. Snack in the room has expired - see pic. I suggest staying elsewhere - so many better options close by.

We booked this condo (4042) at an AMAZING last-minute rate on a holiday weekend. $250 for Saturday and Sunday night TOTAL. So, to be fair, our expectations were rock-bottom. If I had showed up to a dirty, windowless room I would have been like "yeah.... Thats about right.." but what we got was a clean, well furnished loft-style condo. According... More

The cabin we stayed in was clean, fresh smelling and all of the furnishings and carpet were in good repair. The sheets and towels were clean (a very big deal for me) and there were no sketchy stains or second-hand couches in this place. It felt like hanging out in a friend's living room... that annoying friend who always cleans... More

Very child friendly, all ages! We traveled with three kids 11-16 yrs old, and everyone had a blast. We didn't do the group ski school, but highly recommend the snowboard instructor named Josh if he's still there! He made our girls look goooood! We stayed in a cottage on Wagon Wheel drive that was owned by a relative so can't... More

CHeck in at Northstar Village is at entrance to resort by highway. Simple hotel room centrally located in the village. No problem with stowing skis & snowboards in room. Parking is difficult, but then you really don't use the car. Central location in Village is awesome. No more than ten minutes to anything in the village; some at 3 minutes.... More

The village is great, lots of shops, couple restaurants, rentals and ice rink. In the morning we stood in a pretty lengthy line to get our rentals (around 8am). We booked the rentals the night before online and saved quite a bit of money from what I saw others spending that morning. The staff was very friendly and efficient. Although... More

We stayed in the hotel style village room during the holidays. The location is great, literally steps from the gondola. Stores, restaurants, and the recreation center are all within very short walking distance. But the room is just old although decent size (we may have got a bit larger one). Carpets are dirty, bathroom is small, and the heater sounds... More

Very well run village great love ice rink. We tried to pizza place and bistro and they were ok at best. We stayed at iron horse apartments which were great. Handy Safeway just by lake not far from resort. Ski field was great. I would go back.
