Bedrooms 2
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Some features that set this condo apart from the other Village 2 bedroom condos. Top Floor with vaulted Ceilings, 60” flat screen TV with BluRay DVD (will also play regular DVD’s) and Bose surround sound in the living room. Also large flat screen TV’s in each bedroom with their own DVD’s. This condo is only 50 yards from the gondola and ticket booths. We have invested in additional built-in lighting so that the evenings can be filled with games, jigsaw puzzles, reading (most of the other New Village condos have very limited lighting for night time activities). We have high speed wireless internet. We have also re-space planned the living area so that the sofa is back from the fireplace and TV – much better for TV/entertainment viewing and sound system. The kitchen is supplied with many gourmet items such as Margarita machine, Espresso machine, large Hobart mixer. We have tubs for soaking those sore muscles in both bathrooms. There are views of the ski run and pine trees from every room. Two king beds (most comparable 2 bedroom condos have one king and one queen).

Pick up your ski equipment from your own locker at the first floor elevator exit and you are just steps away from the gondola. After a great day of skiing drop your ski equipment off in your own Big Horn ski locker – just steps from the bottom of the ski run - and hop on the elevator to return to the condo to relax and review your day on the hill.

There are lots of other fun things to do in the evening as well:

Work out in the gym and soak in the hot tubs at the Big Horn spa

Watch your favorite entertainment on our 60” flat screen TV with BluRay DVD and Bose Sound

Play games, do jigsaw puzzles, read with our plentiful built-in lighting

Dine at one of our wonderful restaurants in the Village: Mikuni, Rubikon, Etc.

Visit the quaint town of Truckee or the lake town of Kings Beach for additional dining options

Go to the ice rink for cocktails and s’mores

Actually be an ice skater on the ice rink

Watch or be a bungee jumper

Play in the snow

You get the idea

The parking is underground in the heated garage and includes complimentary luggage carts for easy hauling upstairs to the ski locker and condo. There is one parking space with additional parking in main area and in garage on “Space-Available” basis. Boat & RV parking is available through Northstar. There is a specific lot that is assigned to large vehicles, and a pre-arrival phone call is necessary.

For the non-skiers be sure to remember the snow-tubing at mid-mountain as well as the snow shoeing and cross country skiing. There is the candle-making shop where they also help you make and dress your own stuffed animals that is located right next to the door to the first floor entrance of our condo. And many shops from fashion to toys. Don’t forget the massage spa!!

About Kathy Dexter

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.

Kathy Dexter purchased this condo in 2010

Why Kathy Dexter chose Lake Tahoe North Shore CA

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!

What makes this condo unique

Unique Benefits of our Big Horn condo are: proximity to the lift and slopes, top floor with vaulted ceilings, 60' TV screen with BluRay with Bose surround sound and the great lighting that we built in so that we can play games, do jigsaw puzzles and read any time we want to. All lighting is on dimmers so that we can set any mood we want from romantic to party! The open space plan and high end leather furnishings add greatly to the creature comforts.

You had us at Underground Heated Parking

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful ski vacation here. The location makes it so easy - right by the gondola. Great experience for this beginner skier! The condo is gorgeous, it's like a huge luxury 2 bedroom hotel suite. It's extremely well-equipped, owner's attention to detail is spot on. The hot tubs are super close to the condo, too. We absolutely loved our time here, our vacation was over all too soon and we can't wait to stay there again.

Amazing Family Get Away In This Beautiful Condo!!!

  • 5 of 5

We have rented several different condo/houses on VRBO and we are always nervous on what the place will really have in comparison to the detail provided. Lets just say, this condo blew us away! Lets start with the kitchen, extremely stocked and exceeded our expectations. There is not one thing that was forgotten, exceptionally stocked. The condo is extremely clean, updated, and very warm. The beds are AMAZING with the memory foam toppers!! I usually have a hard time sleeping, but slept so comfy it was hard to get out of bed - thankfully there are many coffee options right in the kitchen! The bathrooms were amazing as well, with a nice touch offering bath robes. The art work throughout was such a nice touch. Its located on the 5th floor, so very quiet and relaxing. Kathy was the best to work with - very responsive! This is a place that is now in our "favorites" that we will absolutely stay in again. Wish other owners would take notice and provide the extra touch that goes such a long way!!

Beautiful, cabinesque condo in the center of all Northstar Village has to offer. 5 Stars!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at the Dexter's cabin in Northstar Village. From the moment we opened the door and saw the sun coming in through the high vaulted ceiling window into the well appointed and tastefully decorated "cabin-condo", we knew we had chosen correctly. Everything was as advertised or exceeded expectations. It was clean, well maintained and instructions were available for everything from rental, parking, arrival and close down. We would recommend this to all who appreciate the best.

We enjoyed the ski-in features, ski locker, restaurants and shops within steps of your door. Truckee was also a nice afternoon, just a few minutes away. The only part we didn't like was leaving!

Awesome Condo

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at about 12 other village units, including several in Big Horn. This one is perfectly located, slopeside (no village noise including the annoying small tractor snow removal noise that you get from the courtyard units - which this one is not - it faces the snow side), beautiful view, room has so much more lighting than other places that feel a bit like a cave as they aren't well light, the carpet is very clean and unit is sparkling (many we've stayed at haven't been kept up as nearly as well as this one - this unit is in excellent condition), and the beds and furnishings are so comfy. Owner was a dream to work with, so polite, quick turnaround and you can tell cares about her Northstar home and keeping it in tip top shape. We look forward to returning again. This was our second time staying.

Great Well Appointed 2 Bedroom Condo in the Heart of Northstar

  • 5 of 5

The condo was great - parking right underneath - access to the mountain and restaurants was great. In particular, dealing with Kathy - was really easy. I'd stay here again in a minute.

Spring Break Fun at Big Horn

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at about 10 condo units in the new village over the years in Big Iron, Iron Horse Lodge, etc and this by far was the best equipped, cleanest, most upgraded one we stayed at. We greatly appreciated the comfy beds, how clean it was maintained, everything was at our fingertips and the unit was so well stocked with supplies - we usually have to buy our own tinfoil, bring baking gear, cooking pots and they had everything and then some (kitchen aid mixer, espresso machine, spare everything so you didn't have to resupply on your own). I loved the lighting. Many of the new village units are so dark inside it's hard to see - they put a ton of lighting up and nice upgrades to the furnishings and tv's that make it so enjoyable. I also loved the layout of the living room - instead of it being cramped with too much furniture, you have to crane your neck up to see the tv because the sofa is so close there was room to relax and for my children to play. I think in terms of location - Big Horn slopeside on the top floor is the best - you're away from the noise of the village compared to the other units, high up that it has a beautiful view and is nice and private and only steps from the gondola. We are so excited to stay again soon!
