About the Property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-7)

LOCATION! LOCATION! LOCATION! This condo is in the original Northstar Village Building. As you can see from the pictures, if you look to the right from our outdoor patio you can see the New Northstar Village reception area. It’s that wonderful landmark building with the round copper roof. When you look to the left you see the stairway that goes up to the skating rink and many shops of the Northstar Village. The path to the gondola is directly below our patio. You can ride the elevator down in the morning and walk 50 feet to “Earthly Delights” for your morning coffee (if you don’t feel like making your own). You can see “Earthly Delights from the patio. The front wall of our condo is all glass so you can open it up and watch the snow or just enjoy the beautiful day, but the loft is still very private even with the living room wide open.

There are TV, DVD, VHS, and a small CD stereo player in the living room. There is also a gas fireplace in the living room. This is a top floor unit which allows nice views and privacy with no one above you.

The sleeping arrangement is an open loft with two queen beds. In the living room there is a sleeper sofa that makes out in to a queen bed as well. This is complete with down comforters and pillows. The dinette seats six comfortably.

Enjoy the excitement of being right in the Village and watching the skiers walking to and from the lifts (when you’re not on the hill yourself) during the day. There is the special feeling of being in the middle of things when you wake up in the morning and then again in the evening when all the activity slows down. Speaking of activity, there is the occasional grooming machine working in the night or early morning clearing the pathways and the parking lots after a heavy snow. We think of it as the beautiful sounds of our friends out there preparing the slopes to perfection for our wonderful day of skiing tomorrow. Aren’t we lucky getting to enjoy the snow without having to worry about shoveling it?

Northstar also has a “Nordic Center” and “warming huts” for snow shoeing, cross country skiing and Nordic skating.

Summer time fun includes horseback riding, hiking, mountain biking where the lift takes you up and you ride down, Championship golf and driving range and swimming. Northstar’s tennis center holds national tennis clinics. Nearby: Shakespeare festival on Lake Tahoe, Boating on Lake Tahoe, “Woodies” festival with hundreds of beautiful old Criss Craft and Century type wood boats that have been restored ………..much, much more.

The original condos, as is the case with many mountain homes, do not have central air cooling – they do have central heat. We have installed top-of-the-line Casablanca ceiling fans in both the living room and the loft to circulate the mountain breezes in the summer time.

You will have access to the Northstar Recreation center during your stay which includes 3 year-round spas (hot tubs), large family swimming pool and toddler pool open in the summer, lap pool open year-round, full gym equipment including free weights, saunas, showers, summer time snack bars, year-round game room (with pool, ping pong, air hockey, arcade games), summer time grass and children’s play area, picnic tables and barbeques. You may know that the owners and guests of the New Village Condos do not have access to this activity center. They must bus or drive down to Old Greenwood or Gray’s Crossing for tennis etc. We feel very fortunate to have access to this Recreation Center! As of fall, 2010, the Recreation Center charges $2.00/person/day on admission.

In the condo you will find our welcome binder listing many great activities and resources as well as directing you to our local concierge service. The condo is equipped with carbon monoxide monitors and smoke detectors.

We have our own parking space under the building with an elevator from the garage to the third floor. The elevator opens about 30 feet from the front door of our condo. Luggage carts are stowed in the parking garage stairwell.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1997

About the owner: Jim grew up in Southern California. Kathy grew up in Northern California. In 1978 when our children were two and three years old Kathy's parents (living in Santa Rosa) 'kidnapped' the children for some fun at Northstar. The next year we all went and have been going to Northstar ever since. In the summer we call it our family summer camp. We purchased our first condo on the Ski Trails in 1993 and our second in the Original Village in 1997. This year, spring of 2010, we were fortunate to acquire our New Village Condo. We love hosting guests and enjoy trying to make their stays memorable. We want each of them to love Northstar as much as we do.

Why the Owner Chose Truckee, CA, USA:
We have loved Northstar for over 30 years. We taught our children to ski here and are now teaching our grand children to ski here. Northstar is the most family friendly resort ever. Winter and Summer!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Unique Benefits of our condo in the Original Village are: proximity to the lift and slopes, top floor with vaulted ceilings, great lighting that we built in so that we can play games, do jigsaw puzzles and read any time we want to. Lighting is on dimmers so that we can set any mood we want from romantic to party! Covered Parking. Can go to Earthly Delights Deli in your bedroom slippers -and I do, even when it is snowing - to pick up that quart of milk or gourmet entre!
