Always enjoy all the fun activities at North Star. Great place to hang out with kiddos. So many choices for kids to pick. You can either stay with them or sign them up for camps.

What a great place to lay your head. Great hotels and the views are great. Lots of emenities from various shops. The lodge style buildings make you think you are in the alps. Nicely nestled between Truckee and Kings Beach.
