Northstar hotel description

This Penthouse Residence is located on the private top floor of The Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe.

The Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe is the first and only AAA Five Diamond mountain hotel in California. Located mid-mountain at Northstar and offering unparalleled luxury, service and convenience during all four seasons, this is a property for those that desire the ultimate getaway or family vacation.

The hotel, built in 2009, features beautiful architecture throughout. Amenities include a 17,000 square foot spa/fitness center, exceptional dining options at Manzanita and the Backyard BBQ, a wonderful children's program, and much more. Located steps away is a seasonal gondola that takes you to the Village at Northstar that features a 9,000 square foot ice skating rink during winter (roller skating during summer), and a variety of dining, entertainment and shopping options.

During the winter season, experience the convenience of ski-in/ski-out luxury in the middle of the mountain at Northstar. Your boots will be waiting for you at the ski concierge, with your ski’s and poles placed for you on the snow so that you can ski directly onto the mountain in moments.

During the summer months, Northstar and the Lake Tahoe area serve as an incredible outdoor family playground. Hike right out the backdoor, or take a 15-minute drive to the Lake where opportunities abound. Two championship golf courses are a short drive away.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: We're a family of four -- with a mom who appreciates luxury and superior services, a dad who enjoys comfort and convenience, two boys who love to ski during the winter, and everyone who enjoys boating, waterskiing and biking during the summer -- and swimming (and the spa) year round. Plus, we all love marshmellows.

Why the Owner Chose Northstar:
We've been lucky enough to travel extensively, and we couldn't find another place anywhere that had the combination of incredible mid-mountain location, luxury, convenience, spa/fitness facilities, dining, service and more.

The Unique Benefits at this Hotel:
We can enjoy a relaxing family breakfast in our unit in the morning, ski through lunch during the winter or bike during the summer, enjoy a bite to eat at the the Backyard BBQ, enjoy spa time in the afternoon, take the gondola to the village for some ice skating (roller skating during the summer) or shopping, enjoy delicious complementary marshmallows and s'mores, let our kids have time in the game room while we have a drink in the lobby bar, and spend the evening playing games or watching a movie together in our unit... all without ever getting in our car.
