Always something to do for every interest with the pool, hot tub and game room next door. Deck area accommodates four around table in front of a great gas fireplace. Washer/dryer nice addition...

The resort was amazing, fairly new to Welk. Some of the employees had only been there 6 months so sometimes I knew things they didn't. Lots was closed like activities, lift up mountain, village stores.

Absolutely beautiful. We stayed for a weekend with our son who has 3 at the time and he loved it. We were central to everything and we enjoyed having the ice rink so close. ALTHOUGH he was not a fan of the snow the resort made up for it.

As Welk owners in Escondido, CA, we were disappointed by their new acquisition in Northstar, Lake Tahoe. Housekeeping of the units was lacking. Carpets were stained and dirty, There was a half a set of fake eyelashes on the nightstand table and the other half on the carpet. Clear evidence that great care had not been taken to clean the...

We stayed in a beautiful condo, everything about this place was fantastic. The location and the premises are stunning, the service is friendly and fantastic. Our condo exceeded my expectations, gorgeous and IMMACULATE. The staff were very accommodating and patient, always helpful which was great as it was our first visit to Tahoe. Cannot wait to return.
