About the property

2 Bedroom, 1.5 Bathrooms, Mountain View, Kitchen, Bathrooms,&Fireplace Remodeled

Our goal is to make your stay special and memorable. Your first impression of our “Hunker Hut” in the mountains will be a lasting one as you are greeted by a bottle of wine waiting for you to enjoy while looking out at the view of the Northstar Mountain. This is where you’ll take a deep breath and start to relax.

The Gold Bend townhomes are very close (less than a 1/2 mile) to the Northstar Village, ski slopes, restaurants, recreation center, and shopping. There is a free shuttle service (that you call for your pick up) from our property to the rec center, the village, and the golf course. Our guests have access to the Northstar Recreation Center which has beautiful pools (family & adult), tennis courts, a fitness center, hot tubs (family & adult), bocce courts, and a game room. The Northstar Village has excellent restaurants, shopping, ice skating in the winter, roller skating in the summer, a two theater cinema and live music.

Our remodeled (new bathrooms, kitchen, fireplace) 2 bedroom, 1.5 BA is the perfect spot for you and your family and friends to enjoy a wonderful stay in Tahoe. It's a cozy property that is upgraded, clean, and a perfect spot to plant roots and enjoy what Tahoe has to offer. It has a fully equipped kitchen, gas grill, gas fireplace, large flat screen TV, DVD player and WIFI. Both bedrooms have flat screen TVs. The master bedroom has cable and the second bedroom has a TV that will play DVDs. There is a washer and dryer and a sleeper sofa in living room.

We have a very family friendly location with puzzles, board games, children's books, a pack n play, and premium TV channels for movies and kids shows. For those of you that like to cook the kitchen is stocked with organic spices, condiments, and an extensive amount of cookware (including a brand new crockpot and pancake griddle) and most anything else you'll need. You will have access to an outdoor storage locker that is located right by the front door to store your winter and summer items. For your use you will also find in the closet sleds for the winter and inflatable rings/rafts for the summer that we're happy to share with you during your stay. The back of the unit faces open space trails and forest. This open space has an extensive trail system for hiking and mountain biking during the summer. In the winter it's great for playing in the snow or doing a bit of hiking with snow shoes.

Northstar is a short drive to historical Truckee, Lake Tahoe, and Tahoe City.

Updated and Cozy

We had a nice time- everything worked, was clean, updated, and convenient. They have a binder with all the info you need and passes to the Swimming/Activity Center. Owners also responded quickly to help me out when I had forgotten something! THANK YOU!

Terrific for the summer

  • 5 of 5

This is such a great place to spend a week in Tahoe. The access to the expansive pool facilities can't be beat. We spent all week there and at Northstar hiking at the top. The condo is super clean and well appointed and so easy to move right into and start relaxing.

The town home is perfect. Everything that we expected and more!!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this property is perfect. We stayed for 3 nights and never had to leave the mountain. It is close to everything but far enough to enjoy privacy. Their were sleds for our use that our family had a blast with on the hill in the back yard. Definitely recommended for family vacations.

5 Star Cosy

  • 5 of 5

Our family (2 adults, a teen plus an 8 year old) really enjoyed our condo stay here for our first visit to Tahoe in the snow. The property is well maintained, very clean and comfortable. The overall feel of the condo is like an upscale fireplace suite at Squaw Creek Resort, but with space to spread out that you don't get from a hotel. We enjoyed the views and then sitting by the fire after our activities in the cold. Originally we had wanted to be closer in the village but the dial a shuttle is very reliable and easy and quick. While we loved the atmosphere in the Village, we really enjoyed being able to admire the views from the condo and relaxing. As stated in the description the condo is a wee bit away from the car lot (down steps from the car lot)- but it didn't bother us at all. The location feels very private. Downstairs was a bit colder than upstairs - but the bedding was very warm and snug. The kitchen and bathroom are both excellent. We will definitely stay here again. Our sons already call it "our condo". Thanks again Kristen.
