and right at Northstar Resort. For ski/snowboarding fans this is a ski-in, gondola out resort. Everything is well kept, the rooms well stocked, and the staff couldn't be better. The furnishings are top notch and complement the mountain environment. The Northstar Village is just out the door with a winter ice skating/summer roller skating area and plenty of shops and... More

We had a 2 night reservation. We didn't realize it was the start of the "shoulder season" so the Village was dead. My only complaint with this place is there is absolutely no service. My husband had a bad asthma attack, had great difficulty breathing in the thin air, and we had to check out after only 1 night. I... More

We stayed here Aug 10-14. The address is Truckee, but the resort is closer to Lake Tahoe than Truckee. A fabulous place to stay; beautifully furnished and FULLY equipped, right down to wine glasses, martini glasses, and a martini shaker. Also had a set of 10 Henkel knives in a wooden block. Silverware seemed brand new. The hair dryer was... More

Beautifully appointed, well trained and courteous staff! Full attention to detail. Top end resort! Quiet in the summer! Nice underground parking a plus, especially in winter. Has a feeling of "brand new"

Luxury, luxury, luxury. Spent 4 nights here in a two bedroom, two bath room. This is a timeshare which we rented from someone we know. Fully equipped kitchen - ideal for our family of six since we can't afford to eat out all the time on vacation. Washer and dryer in the unit. No room cleaning service unless you pay... More

This Welk Resort fully exceeded our expectations!!! It starts off with an inside parking garage that is security and is underground and heated. We were surprised by the opening gates, as it reminded us of a ride at Disneyland, and it made our vacation start off with a laugh and a smile!! An inside elevator takes you and your luggage... More

This is a beautiful lodge. We stayed here for 3 nights in the summer off-season with our kids ages 4 and 1. I found it on Tripadvisor so wanted to fill in some of the blanks that I had before coming here because there are so few reviews for this lodge. Other reviewers said that they have everything you need.... More

I Stayed with my family in a three bedroom lodge weeks before for our trip to tahoe and it is over expected! I was choosing from the Ritz Carlton and this and I am so happy that I choose this resort due to the 20 minute mountain drive from the main road to Ritz Carlton. The room is huge and... More

This was the most beautiful place we have ever stayed and all of the staff went above and beyond to make our trip even better! We stayed in the off season and loved the tranquility of the place. The 3 bedroom unit was perfect for our family of five and grandma and grandpa to stay the whole week. We loved... More

I tried several other resorts using Interval, but Welk puts them all to shame. There wasn't one part of the accommodation that didn't go far beyond our expectations. The kitchen was FULLY stocked with appliances, utensils, and ground coffee! They don't give you a miserly packet of dish soap, dishwasher soap, and laundry detergent; they give you actual containers that... More
