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.

About Greg & Kristen Schwager

We have enjoyed skiing and spending summers in Tahoe and love the Northstar area to use as a base for all the fun things there are to do in Tahoe. We have created our special place in the mountains for our family and hope to share it with you as well.

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.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This was an adorable little condo. Super clean and had everything we needed. I didn't do any cooking but the kitchen is stocked with pots, pans, dishes and utensils. There are some spices but definitely hit the store before you come. The beds were comfy, everything felt fresh and clean and the accessibility to Northstar village was great.

Great condo for families with kids; fast response from owners

  • 5 of 5

We decided on Thursday that we would like to take advantage of a week's worth of snow to head up to Tahoe for the weekend. We used the book online option at 10pm on Thursday night and received the confirmation email from Kristen at 7:45 AM the next morning. Her instructions were friendly, complete and very prompt.

A bottle of Pinot on the kitchen counter was a nice greeting. The unit is well laid out, well furnished, updated and very comfy. We loved having a hill behind the condo and spent much of our time playing in the snow and sledding down the hill with the sleds which were in the guest locker by the front door. The balcony off the living room overlooks the hill, so it's easy to be in the condo while the kids play in the snow. In our downtime in the evenings, we enjoyed curling up by the fire and watching one of over 55 movies which were provided. The kitchen is well stocked with everything from spices to a blender to pots/pans for pretty much anything you plan to cook.

The location provides quick access to the Village Village at Northstar for eating out, ice skating or upscale shopping and King's Beach is only about a 10 minute drive...making trips to the grocery store very convenient. We've stayed in condos in The Village before and we really liked that we were only a half a mile away from the amenities of the Village, but at the same time we were out of the chaos of the Village, which provided more play options for the kids. The added benefit is that renting this condo is at least $100 less per night than renting a similar one in the Village at Northstar and it is just as updated as any other condo we have rented.

All in all, we'll definitely save this condo in our favorites on VRBO and we're looking forward to spending another weekend here.
