6 miles away from the lake, facility is very clean and almost brand new, a very nice pool, spa, and fitness centers. A very beautiful village having many stores and restaurants, also Starbucks and ice cream shops. Free Wifi in most areas.

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.

Stayed at Northstar Lodge with friends for a few days in July, 2016. We were in the area for a MTB race. The area is stunningly beautiful, and the property is modern and well maintained. The staff went above and beyond to accommodate. The building maintenance engineers even offered assistance with our bike maintenance. A dream destination.

We went for a Summer Weekend in July. Still pricey for off-season time, but the property is really nicely done. It is a time-share facility, so units I believe to vary a little dependingon owner preferences. Our unit (Catamount #409) had great fixtures and furnishings. Kitchen was huge, and we loved cooking in one night. Nice fireplace and built-in sound...

I can only imagine what this place is like during the winter with the various slopes in use because during the summer they are used for biking and trekking and they are superb. Big place much quieter in summer we are told but the facilities are amazing. Went to the Ritz Carlton there....needs to be seen it must be amazing...

I booked a (very) last minute trip summertime, mid-week at the hotel style rooms. It was relatively easy to do over the phone. The employee clearly described the room, location and where to check in.

We stayed in a 3 bedroom/2 bath condo. It was clean and fully equipped. The beds were comfortable. We used the free shuttle service to get to the village and the rec center. Kids and adults had a great time swimming, relaxing in the hot tub, playing pickle ball, roller skating, and dining in the village.
