About Ken McGrath

After coming to Northstar for years, we finally bought a place and gutted and remodeled it. It has been our dream to own a small piece of heaven in the Northstar area. Perfect for a family bonding or get away. We leave each time feeling refreshed and appreciative of the nature and beauty provided by Lake Tahoe Northstar area.

Ken McGrath purchased this condo in 2014

Why Ken McGrath chose Lake Tahoe North Shore CA

As busy as life is, everyone needs a place to retreat and recharge. This condo is perfect for activity (snowboarding, swimming, skiing, hiking, mountain biking, golf...) OR for relaxation and rejuvenation (massage, shopping, dining, free gondola to the Ritz, etc.)

What makes this condo unique

Open the front door and you'll find views of gorgeous trees, look out the back window and again you're surrounded by views of trees. Privacy and serenity. Quiet end location.

Great location at Northstar

  • 4 of 5

The condo is just right for a small family for a few days. The bed and sofa bed were comfortable, the kitchen had all we needed, it was quiet and peaceful in a beautiful setting, and just a short walk to the village.

Great accommodations in an excellent location at Northstar

  • 5 of 5

Great unit with lots of space, with a high end, modern remodel. Very clean and new. Comfortable accommodations, and very well suited for my wife and me for our ski weekend. Well stocked kitchen, and very nice to prepare our own food and avoid the ridiculous Vail pricing. I absolutely loved the stonework in the bathroom, and kitchen backsplash, an the stone counter is gorgeous.

This excellent location made Northstar much more convenient, as we parked once, and then didn't have to move the car for the rest of the trip. Avoiding Northstar's far out parking lot/shuttle system made the trip so much more enjoyable than our past visits to the mountain.

I didn't see anyone else comment on this, so I would like to provide some details on the ski-out convenience. The unit is mostly ski out, located at the end of this section of condos at the end of Coyote Fork, and is just a few steps (though some of them were pretty deep after a healthy snow fall), up to Coyote Fork run, which is a relatively flat, but ungroomed run to Home Run (groomed), with a short turn down to the right to connect to the Highlands Gondola. At the end of the day, it's a short traverse from the top of The Big Easy chair, then continue down to the right on Home Run. Just past the last set of condos higher on the mountain, take the first right (unmarked) onto a section indicated as a snow shoe trail. Then, take the first left down a steeper section, keeping the "ski boundary" ropes on your right, an you'll end up right at the condo. It was a little deep (we were spoiled with over a foot of fresh snow during our weekend) and ungroomed, but it's a short, mid-steepness intermediate. There also seems to be a shuttle stop in the parking lot, or a short walk back down the hill to the village if you choose not to get around by ski/board in the winter.

It is a little inconvenient from the parking lot, as this unit seems to be near the far end furthest from parking, with a sidewalk and some steps around the outside to get to the unit. Since we only unloaded the car once and just used the adjacent ski run the rest of the time, no big issues - just moving stuff once from the car and then back at the end.

The owners were extremely helpful and quick with communication, and my wife and I will definitely look to stay here again for future visits to Northstar. Highly recommend (even if that hurts the availability for us to rent again in the future).
