“Very pleased”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

We had a great time very clean love the quiet atmosphere and there is so much to do around the area minutes from Lake Tahoe. We were able to go waterskiing, tubing, river float trip, mini golf, bungey trampoline, biking, swimming, hiking, roller skating, and the fitness area had a pool table and fuseball. The only thing we didn't get to do was ride gondolla to top of mountain there were lightening strikes and then a downpour of hail.

Room Tip: May want a two bedroom if you have kids I heard those come with bunk beds, we just had one fold out...

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

Being steps from the gondola is a huge advantage. Having a ground floor ski locker is another plus. And how about two outdoor jaccuzi's and a steam room? Big kitchen in the condo and interesting restaurant choices very near.
Someone probably paid nearly a million bucks for this condo, (all these different condos seem to be managed by the same company, and some of them are nearer the gondola with more "romantic" views than Iron Horse..our place had a partial parking lot view), but for a reasonable rate, you can enjoy a lot of luxury. The bedrooms are small with incredibly big, comfortable beds (we had a two bedroom), kitchen opulent and bathrooms spacious. There were tiny signs of wear, which is expected, but worn carpets, tiny stains and tears in fabrics keep me from going with 5 stars. I booked through Expedia because I couldn't get a booking person on the phone after several tries and their website showed them full, which was not the case.

This is the 2nd time we have stayed here. We love the proximity to the ski slopes and nice village feel location with many shoppes and restaurants. fabulous decor. Only thing that I wish was that they should at least include cleaning service For one day out of the week to tidy up and clean bathrooms. Otherwise, it's perfect.

we stayed in a 4 bed unit in iron horse south in early January 2013. it was a fantastic experience. the unit had an exceptional fit out and northstar as a family ski destination is perfect. our group included 2 kids under 3, the village location worked really well for them.

Staying just 5 days at the Iron Horse in a 2 bedroom 3 bath unit made my 7 year old say he never wants to stay in a different hotel again. We all absolutely loved the unit. We've stayed in many condo-style places before, but the IH was the most comfortable and well-appointed by far.

We especially appreciated the attention to detail, in the room and by the staff. The room had everything we needed including full kitchen tools and amenities, bedroom furniture that included a chaise lounge, ample lighting fixtures, humidifiers, and very luxurious bedding. Truly felt like home. The staff were super friendly and helpful. Not to mention generous with the lobby coffee and hot chocolate for me and my family.

List of other great things: underground and secure parking, access to all Northstar Resort fitness centers and hot tubs/swimming, DVR on main tv, ski lockers, washer & dryer in unit, Northstar Village restaurants and shops, ice/roller skating.

Loved it so much, we're already planning to go back in the summer.

We stayed in Iron Horse - a 1 bedroom, 1 bath condo. It was beautiful and nicely decorated. We were a little dissappointed not all the restaurants were open during our stay. We ate at the wine bar and Mikuni's and both were excellent. Lot's of fun for a weekend getaway with no kids! We looked out over the older condos so the view was not that great but the inside of the room and service when we checked in made up for it. We did not experience the noise level as others did - it was nice and quiet for us. Would definitely stay again and bring kids with us this time.

Thank you so much pkimmi for taking the time to provide a review of the Iron Horse Lodge and Tahoe Mountain Resorts Lodging. I apologize that all of the restaurants in the village were not open during your visit. I will most definitely share your thoughts with the Northstar team. I am glad that you did enjoy the options you had. I too frequent Petra, Mikuni and of course Starbucks for my morning latte and love them all! We hope to see you back soon...this winter we're hoping for some great snow!

Have stayed at Northstar several times and highly recommend it. Summer rates are much lower than winter rates so we come up every year to play some golf and the many other activities in and around the lake. We've stayed at both 1 bedroom and 3 bedrooms units in the past. All have similar furniture and amenities. Some units still have tube TV's in the bedrooms, which is not so great, but didn't really watch all that much TV there so I didn't mind it too much.

Several things to consider in the summer, is the Gondola to the Ritz Carlton highlands only runs on weekends at 1:30pm to I think around 10pm. We were there Sat - Tue. It would be great if they had some kind of shuttle to take guests back and forth when the Gondola is not open. Especially since Ritz Carlton charges for parking.

Check in is easy and received a complimentary bottle of wine for being repeat guests!

Thank you EMSF29 for taking the time to provide us with a review of your stay! We are so glad that you enjoyed your visit with us. I will share your feedback regarding the gondola schedule with the Ritz Carlton as I am sure they will appreciate that you would have liked to have been able to spend more time there if transportation was available. Your comments about the TV's will be shared with our homeowner liasion. Our guest feedback is highly valued by our owners. We look forward to your next stay with us! See you soon.
