Was really looking forward to checking out this property since reading about it online. It was off season, end of the summer, so it wasn't too busy. I love staying off season as you get a better price and hotels aren't as crowded as they would be in peak season.
This property is tucked away in the woods at the top of a hill at the end of a LONG driveway. Very secluded but worth every minute of the drive. There is a gondola that runs from the property to the village at Northstar. I was only running Friday afternoon thru Sunday the time of year we were there and we didn't get a chance to ride in it. Instead, we utilized the house car (Cadillac Escalades) to take us and pick us up from the village. We had a very nice young man that drove us each time. Turns out he is from our home town in the the Bay Area. Always fun to find someone from your hometown on vacation. Due to it being off season, the house cars were readily available with little advance notice. LIKE!
Our room was a standard room that overlooked the gondola and the RC Residences. See photos. Room was very comfortable and the kids and I enjoyed it completely.
Spent time both days at the pool...poolside service was consistent. Drink and food choices we ample. Many families with children at the pool which made it nice for my two children. Early evening they had a Smoreologist at the firepit teaching the kids how to make s'mores and they fixings were complimentary. Kids totally loved it! As the Mom...I thought the timing was off as it was just before dinner time. Oh well, while on vacation...we tend to bend the rules.
Overall, lovely property and look forward to returning.
