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!

Great small place near Northstar skiing....

  • 4 of 5

Will sleep six, 1 queen, two sets of bunk beds in two small bedrooms plus an overhead loft. Not new but very serviceable with owner, Bob Thornton, quite responsive. Shuttle to skiing , a two minute ride, is right outside the unit with 10-15 minute frequency, a nice option to paying for parking.

Perfect condo for our family ski vacation at Northstar

  • 5 of 5

The condo was perfect for my husband, two boys (12 years old and 10 years old) and myself. We stayed in the master bedroom while my boys stayed in the second bedroom. There's also a loft with two twin beds, so they could've brought friends. There's a full bath and a half bath which were well supplied with towels, soap and shampoo. The kitchen was also well stocked with cooking ware, eating ware as well as spices. The condo is within walking distance to the Village at Northstar. However, we took the shuttle bus when we had our ski equipment or when it was too cold to walk at night. The shuttle bus stop is right in front of the condo. The condo was clean and comfortable for all of us. Would definitely stay here again!
