Why Gordon Kingsley chose Northstar
The choice of Northstar was easy! Both my wife and I love Lake Tahoe. We play golf, hike, swim, fly fish and I ski. Northstar is unique. The new village with over 35 shops and restauants, great snow and mountain bike parks, great views of Lake Tahoe to name a few things we like. No wonder Ritz Carlton Hotel chose Northstar Tahoe Resort as the first West coast four season resort . Oh, did I mention the great location of our house overlooking the 16th fairway of the golf course, not to mention the great furnishings, comfortable pillowtop beds, televisons in every room,completely remodeled full kitchen and bathrooms, WiFi, and leather couch and Morris chairs.
What makes this house unique
The unique benefits we enjoy at Northstar include double whammy golf and ski passes, use of the recreation center owned and operated by NPOA (Northstar Property Owners Association). The recreation center has Olympic, childrens, and year around lap pools, 3 large hot tubs, weight and sauna, video and games arcade, and multipurpose buildings, championship tennis courts, barbeque and picnic facilities, and childrens playground. Someone has to do this!
