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 Truckee

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.

This place was beautiful. It made for a great Tahoe experience. It really set the mood for our trip.

  • 5 of 5

I only want to stay at Kathy’s condo when I go snowboarding at Northstar. The parking is located right under the room, the gondola is directly below the complex, and it’s right in the middle of the village. You can’t beat the convenience of this place.

We had a great time! Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

We loved every minute of our stay at Big Horn 508! The condo was very clean and cozy. The owner was super helpful with any needs we had. The kitchen was totally stocked with everything we could ever want to cook with. We were at Northstar during an off season so things were very low key in the Village, but we were more than happy to stick around the condo. We mainly went to the hot tub, fitness room, ate and played games, catching up on some much needed time with the family! It was a perfect getaway for us!😊

Thanks to the Dexter Family for sharing your place with us!

Great condo in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

I don't know where to start. Ms Dexter was totally responsive to all our questions. Clean, quiet, great electronics, and kitchen equipment. Good directions for using everything. Comfortable beds. Well supplied with paper products, dishwasher and laundry supplies. Full line up of cable channels. Wifi has great speed. Balcony is on the quiet side away from the skating rink. Some food options in the Northstar complex. Truckee and everything you could need is just a few minutes away. The North Lake Tahoe area is a great summer vacation location. We don't ski, but it is clear that this condo would be perfect in winter also.
