Eat in, eat out or order take-out; all are equally easy. Eliminating the need to haul equipment around, there is a large private ski locker at the building entrance on ground level with comfortable seating to allow you to “suit-up” in the morning.

With parking in the heated garage you will no longer need to shovel snow off of your car or scrape ice from the windows. There is easy access to the fitness facility with showers, steam sauna, weight room with the latest generation of equipment including treadmills and ellipticals with integrated TVs. Relax in one of the two hot tubs or enjoy the nearby swimming pool at the Village Swim & Fitness Center. Free access to guests to all of these facilities.

Big Horn Winner

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic location in the heart of Northstar Village, Big Horn Lodge. This Penthouse is right in the middle of the Village action but also quiet because of it’s 5th floor orientation. Lifts, gondola, ice skating, all the amenities of the village are just out the door of Big Horn. Equally fantastic were the property managers, Beth and Andy, who made sure all of our needs were met leading up to, and during our stay! We will always look for properties that they manage when returning to Northstar!

Beautiful setting and scenery

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this Northstar condo. Close proximity to the Village was a plus. It was fun to look down on the area from the fifth floor, and the gas fireplace made it extra cozy. Needs better instructions on operating the TV and VCR remotes. Needs map of Village and recommended restaurants, their open days and menus. We would stay here again.

Perfect location, perfect condo at Northstar

  • 5 of 5

This is really the perfect place to stay at Northstar.

The location can't be beat – we literally skied to our front door today. It's super easy and convenient to stash skis in the handy ski lockers downstairs, and it's nice to be right in the hustle and bustle of the village. Since the unit is high up on the 5th floor, we found noise from the village wasn't an issue and the views were great. The underground parking is really nice too, and makes loading in/out a breeze, especially if it's stormy out!

The unit itself is gorgeous (seemed nicer then the pictures) and I was nicely laid out. The full kitchen, with everything you need to cook a big meal, was great, and hanging out after a day of skiing in front of the fireplace was nice.

Beth was super helpful around checkin and checkout, and always answered questions quickly. I think this condo represents great value for what you get too.

We'll be back for sure, and I really can't imagine staying anywhere else! This one is perfect.

Excellent location and communication with owner

  • 5 of 5

Perfect home for a snow vacation. This is truly and Ski in and Ski out location. The lobby entrance into the big horn building is at the end of the Village Run trail. Once you enter the building you can safely store your equipment in the secured locker in the lobby. In addition, while visitors to Northstar is fighting for the scarce free parking spots, you can enter into the private underground parking and take the elevator right up to your condo. The home is fully furnished with all of the kitchenware that is needed to make a hearty home cook meal in the condo.

Beth is very accommodating and very easy to work with. She is responsive to all of my inquiries and I highly recommend booking your next vacation through her.

Very Nice, Ski in/Ski out. Underground Parking.

  • 5 of 5

This is a very convenient and well equipped condo. The underground parking right is great, the access to the fitness center and hot tub in the village is great. The location could not be better, ski lockers downstairs and a short walk to the gondola. Clean. Highly recommended.
