We stayed in a 3-bedroom condo at the resort and it was fantastic. The unit had a gas fireplace in the living room and on the deck. Comfortable beds with plush quilts and pillows. Bathrooms were spacious and very modern. Great underground garage. The resort is a bit isolated so bring groceries to cook in full kitchen (Viking Appliances). The... More

The rooms, the property and the staff are all great. We are not owners and sometimes the real estate / pitch people can be pushy but Cielo and the manager Tom were both really wonderful. They allowed us space to discuss the big decision to become owners without pressure. The Resort has tons of great activities for the kids too... More

Northstar is beautiful! The rooms were very masculine with rustic but clean looking furniture. The kitchen has everything that you need. We stayed in Aspen Grove, which is a short, 5 minute trek to the village. I will say that the property is quite large, so you might want to request that your lodging is close to the village shops,...

Spring Break in April is a mixed bag. Sometimes snow and sometimes not. This trip I booked a 3 bedroom at Welk Resorts 6 months in advanced thinking at least we'll be comfy. This place is gorgeous!

The resort is amazing and Dennis is just outstanding. He was the front desk clerk who greeted us every afternoon and night. We were there Sunday through Wednesday. Dennis was very informative. He gave us information regarding where to hike and go rock climbing. Also told us about local eateries. Took our 11 year old who enjoyed rock climbing. We... More

We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and looking for a special place to stay that didn't require a plane trip. Since we are members of the Welk Resorts, we decided to try their Tahoe place.
