About the Property
1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 4 , Ski-in, Ski out! (snow permitting)
This is also the perfect place to serve as a platform to head out to all of your activities, or, if you just want a quiet relaxing couple of days in the mountains, this unit is for you. Stroll about the many shops, and find activities for the kids.
If we can make it work with the cleaning crew, we are happy to make accommodations for an early check in, or late check out - sleep in, or head out for a last day of fun - come early, and stay late - free of charge. Why waste your entire last day traveling?
This one bedroom, one bath has a queen size bed, and a couch with a queen size pull-out. The condo is fully furnished with all the amenities you could need. The condo is on the ski slope so if there is snow, no walking at all. Park the car, bring in the groceries, and you are set for the duration! If you just want to go to the village to enjoy the sights, and do not want to walk, call for the shuttle bus, and they will whisk you down to the village, Rec center, or anywhere in Northstar - with or without skis or snow toys.
In winter, no carrying your skis, or your kids skis, or your kids, across the village. No getting on and off buses, no walking across parking lots, no sitting in line as you drive into the resort. At the end of the day, no repeating the above. Ski home for lunch, or have a leisurely morning, and still make the first tracks in the snow! (Snow-pack dependent)
This is an upstairs unit, so no noise from the neighbors above you! The kitchen is stocked with minor items such as salt, pepper, seasonings, etc, pots, pans, utensils, fondue pots, coffee pot, tea kettle (for that all important hot cocoa), keurig and a few K-cups to start you off, toaster, microwave, all of which are available for your use. This is one of the few units with a natural gas bbq on the deck. Its not giant, but feel free to cook up some hot dogs for lunch, bbq up a few steaks or chicken breasts for dinner. If you don't want to lift a finger, take the short walk to the village for a wonderful dining experience. If you do not feel like walking, simply call the shuttle bus, and they will pick you up and drop you wherever you want to go at Northstar. Enjoy access to the Northstar recreation center ($2/guest). During the winter, you can enjoy the sauna, hot tub, lap pool, exercise room and game room. After you take a short rest from skiing, head down to the village and try your hand at ice skating or sitting by a cozy fire and have a warm drink while spending time with old friends, or make new ones. If you just cant get away from work, feel free to use the free internet. There are also DVDs, Netflix, Roku, board games, and a few books, if you want to spend some time inside.
For longer stays (or mishaps) there is a full size washer and dryer on the same level as the unit. There is no charge for the use of the washer and dryer.
There is a small bin with some snow boots, kids gloves, snow toys (Arctic Shields, snow ball makers, snow ball throwers) that folks are welcome to use, as long as the guests take care of them!
This is a non-smoking unit - no smoking of any type. Not 420 friendly.
If this is a special occasion, such as engagement, honeymoon, anniversary, birthday, let us know, and if you have any special requests, we can try work out your requests for flowers, chilled champagne, box of chocolates, new pair of skis, Mountain Bike, etc, with our assistant (payment would go to her).

About the owner: Our parents bought this Unit when it was nothing but wooden stakes in the ground, in the early 70's. We became ski fanatics, and although we traveled up and down I-80 for many years, we ended up participating in competitive ski racing, and attending Truckee High School. Go Wolverines! We have scoured every inch of Northstar (and maybe drove Northstar Security bananas a time or two). Now us kids (who all have grey hair) are all grown up, and want to keep it in the family. However, we all have jobs and busy lives - so we don't get up as often as we would like. We thought we would try VRBO as a way to offset some of the costs. With a little help from an awesome friend who does the cleaning, we are hoping to make it work - as we know mom would want it to stay in the family. We also want other young families to have the same opportunity to build solid family connections and a lifetime of memories. A small cozy condo helps foster that togetherness. We hope you gain the memories and family bonds that were created when we were kids, and still go on when our families visit as well. In memory of our parents, ask about a 10% discount for active duty and retired military PRIOR TO BOOKING.
Why the Owner Chose Truckee, CA, USA:
The location of this particular unit is paramount. It is right on the ski slope - so when there is snow, you click into your skiis and ski down to the lift. On the way home, slip in through the trees, and ski right up to the pathway 10 feet from the door! No trudging across parking lots or streets. No walking down paths, no nothing! Northstar maintains their snowpack impeccably. You wont find better groomed snow anywhere. It is an upstairs unit... you don't have to hear the noise of the people above you all night. Additionally, this unit has a balcony - and we have put a natural gas BBQ out there. The Unit still has a fire place - real wood, with a little natural gas to help out if you are not a fire builder.
