Great place. As advertised.

  • 4 of 5

Bob and his family have created a little oasis at Northstar. Often times, the VRBO ads can be overstated with lovely pictures and descriptions, only to find out when you get there that it isn't the place you expected. Not here. The unit was clean, well appointed and just "as advertised." The place has comfortable furniture and everything you can need. Also, being foodies, we appreciated the well stocked kitchen. Can it use some updating? Sure it could. But if you want upscale and new, you can stay at the Northstar Lodge or go up the mountain to the Ritz. For the money, this is a great unit.

Cozy SKi Cottage Near Northstar!

  • 5 of 5

Comfort: We had a a great stay in late Feb/early March. The condo fit our family of 5 with it's upstairs loft and downstairs bedrooms. Everything was clean. Kitchen had all sorts of pans and utensils and even lots of spices!

Convenience: The shuttle is outside the door when you call it although I walked back and forth 5-10 minutes several times with no problems. The ski slopes were fab and my husband and kids had a blast!! I enjoyed the Rec center which has pools and a gym and massages etc, since I'm not a skier (anymore) and took a bus from Northstar village to shop in Truckee which was easy and enjoyable.

Owner: Bob was very helpful and flexible during the booking and even sent his daughter over during our week when I had inquired about light bulbs that were burnt out, making the kitchen and dining/living areas darkish. Also: unbeknownst to us we (the kids I am sure!) left a bag of stuff at the house and Bob and his wife mailed it to us! What nice, accommodating people and service! Many thanks again!!

Feedback: We would have loved some sort of dryer/warmer for ski hats/gloves and boots which often did not dry overnight in time for skiing the next morning. (We didn't want to leave the fireplace on during the night. )

*ALso would be helpful if someone in charge of the Aspen Grove grounds could have shoveled the ice and snow away or put down salt outside our condo. We only saw that one day when we were leaving and there had been LOTS of snow during our stay. Thanks!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review and the suggestion about having gloves and boot dryer available for guests. We will do that for next winter. Bob Thornton
