|Minimum Stay||1 - 5 nights|
With space for four guests, a private patio overlooking the mountains, and an unmatched location in the heart of Northstar, this special studio makes an unforgettable Tahoe escape!
Right on the main walk of the Village at Northstar, this studio condo has two comfortable queen beds to sleep up to four guests. Just outside the door, enjoy fabulous casual and fine dining, roller and ice-skating, fire pits and lounging around the rink, skiing and snowboarding, movie theater, and world-class shopping. Or walk over to the NPOA Recreation Center to the year-round outdoor pool and hot tubs, seasonal recreation pool with water mushroom, tennis, workout facilities, and more!
Enjoy the convenience of a nicely equipped kitchenette with microwave, coffeemaker, and mini-fridge. With the gourmet deli and taqueria right across the way, it's easy to dine in or prepare a light meal before a day of exploration. The movie theater is just down the walk, and the ice-skating rink and gondola are up a flight of stairs outside.
Overlook all the action from your Village-view patio after a fun-filled day, or enjoy a quiet night in with the cable TV with DVD player. Internet access makes it easy to plan your next adventure or book the night's dinner reservations! One private parking spot in the very closest lot is reserved for your stay, and there's a coin-op laundry room on-site so you'll never run out of fresh warm socks for a day on the slopes!
Wintertime is a skier's paradise, with the lifts within easy walking distance. In the summer, mountain bike down from the gondola, or hit up the golf course with its unique "mountain nine" and "valley nine" layout.
Skiing couldn't be more convenient, and in the summer Northstar features downhill mountain biking from the gondola as well. For even more recreation, Truckee is just two miles away, and Kings Beach/Lake Tahoe are just six miles. Hop on the public bus, less than a block from your door, to explore all the attractions that this recreational paradise has to offer!
Thanks for considering a Vacasa home! We provide full-service management for privately owned vacation homes, and like to think that we offer our guests the best of both worlds: the unique experience of staying in a one-of-a-kind vacation home, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the home you book for your special vacation is cared for by professional housekeepers and property managers.
Vacasa began in 2009, simply because our founder and CEO Eric wanted to find a better way to share his wife’s family’s summer home in Long Beach, Washington with guests as a vacation rental. Eric and his early team worked to build Vacasa on the premise that local employees can do what they love most (taking care of guests, homeowners, and properties), while the hands-off tasks of vacation rental management—things like marketing, filing taxes, and maintaining a website—could be handled by a specialized central support team.
Our passion is connecting travelers with the unique experience of staying in a vacation home, and we would be honored to be your host. Please contact us with any questions about this home—our team is standing by!
If you plan on skiing Northstar, staying in the village is the way to go. Very convenient place. Its not a luxury hotel but it serves the exact purpose of a place to stay and be within walking distance of the ski resort. No need to fight for parking, etc
This rental is a unit at Northstar Village Timber Creek Lodge. We stayed 3 nights during the President's Day weekend. The studio itself is very basic and in dire need of updating. With renovations, the Unit would be priced much higher so the dated furnishings keeps it affordable. But if you are just in need of a place to sleep and shower that is affordable and right in the middle of the Village, this is the place. Calling it a "studio" is a bit of a stretch. It's basically a standard double hotel room with a microwave and dorm fridge which serve as the "kitchenette". However, despite the spartan accomodations, in the end, it earns 4 Stars from me for its unbeatable location alone.
There is DSL internet with WiFi but it is very slow. The beds have egg crate foam pads on them, I assume to extend their service life but are reasonably comfortable. If it snows overnight, the snow removal equipment (you mostly hearing the beeping of vehicles backing up) starts at 4am so earplugs for light sleepers are a good idea. There is a wall heater which is loud but effective. We were able to turn it off during sleep overnight and the room remained comfortable.
The rental apparently comes other access to the recreation room and hot tub but we did not use it so I cannot comment on it.
It comes with one assigned parking spot (pass was in the room and must be placed inside your car during your stay). The Gondola is literally a 2-3 min walk from the room. Starbucks is across the courtyard and up a flight of stairs for your cup of coffee on the way to the lifts. There are several restaurants and shops in the Village so we did not get back into our car for our entire 4 day trip.
Checkin instructions from Vacasa were thorough and easy, and their customer service was prompt and friendly for the couple minor issues we had. There is apparently a local maintenance manager for any immediate issues with the room, but we did not require anything so cannot comment on how prompt or reliable that service was.
Love the location. So easy to get to the lifts. First day we had a 9 hour blackout. We got in bed with our jackets on at 8pm to stay warm. No lights, no heat. Toilet needs fixing and heater needs some way so that it doesn't blow cold air on the person in the bed near it. Walls are thin so we had Frankenstein above us. ...couldn't believe someone could walk so much and so loud in such a small space. Then we had to listen to the late night amorous goings-on of the neighbors next to us. You have to take your own coffee filters... this isn't a hotel room. We took 100 and left them for future renters.
Stayed with my wife and daughter. Reminds me of placed I stayed when I was much younger. Would probably opt for a 1 bed next time. You can't argue with the insanely awesome location.
Pretty decent place. Be sure to use the door handle when inputting the code. We were sent an email from the management company telling us to ise the lock box, which would not work. After calling the management company I received a call back with correct instructions for entry. There were a few tissues behind the nightstand behind the beds, but there is no way we're touching those. The cleaning crew needs to make sure they do a better check. Location is stellar. Place is ok. Don't bother bringing anything to cook. Drinks, fruit, and snack bars are pretty much the max capacity here.
The place is very convenient form skiing perspective. Close to the lifts. However, the bed was the most uncomfortable bed I had ever slept in. There was constant beeping noise at night long. Trucks going in and out and backing up. Their backup warning beeping noise was awful. Seemed like garbage trucks, delivery trucks, snow removal equipment, etc. Nonstop beeping and noise all night long. Spent two night there and could not sleep at all. Will not got there again.
The place is tired but cheep. I guess you get what you pay for.
