A wonderful experience in our 2 Bedroom vacation home at the Northstar Lodge by Welk Resorts. The comfortable, wonderfully designed architecture of this quaint ski in ski out lodge provided the warmth and coziness we needed after a winter wonderland day of skiing. Sitting fireside on our private balcony overlooking the snow covered trees as we watched the quiet fall... More

We (2 families of 8 in total) booked Northstar Lodge as we wanted accommodation that is situated within a ski village and next to the ski slopes as we didn't want to have to make the daily commute up to the ski slopes everyday. The resort certainly has a wow factor! Check-in was ok though one of the ladies at... More

Well they did it again! Another resort surprised me and put some big smiles on my families faces! After the extremely short check in process, you get to park your vehicle under the cavernous like parking lot, beneath the Welk Northstar. But first the magical doors open, reminded me of the Snow White ride from Disneyland! Mind you, I've been... More

First time visiting Tahoe in the winter and I couldn't imagine staying anywhere else. Rooms were spacious and beautiful, a fireplace in every room and even in the balcony patio. Everything easily accessible, even a little village to walk to. It was a winter wonderland with horse drawn sleds, ice skating rink, movie theatre, and fire pits to keep you... More

It's our second trip to Tahoe during the first-snow season and this time we will definitely come back at Northstar with more friends. The place and location is just perfect that we just want to stay there and enjoy the place. Despite the construction,we had fun specially the kids. Definitely reccomending to friends and co-workers. Excellent for family,couples on honeymoon,retirees,group... More

Very nice units that are well appointed and with a well stocked, fantastic kitchen. As usual, there wasn’t anything resembling a pantry but we made due by using the entertainment unit cabinet. They supplied all the coffee for the entire week, that’s a first (and we’ve been timesharing for over 30 years). Check in was seamless though they supplied VERY... More

My husband and I stayed here mid-September. Weather was warm to hot during the day, but cooled off enough at night to wear a light sweater if dining al fresco.
