About Donna Madier
We are a family of four from the Bay Area. We have been vacationing in Lake Tahoe for many years and consider it one of our Happy Places and a home away from home. We love to ski, hike and travel.
Donna Madier purchased this Cabin in 2016
Why Donna Madier chose Northstar California Resort
We fell in love with the layout and location of this property. It has great bones! We've remodeled it and it looks and feels like a charming getaway - decorated in French Industrial Chic style. It has a great room which includes the living room and dining room with vaulted ceilings, large bedrooms and spacious loft that serves as a game/entertainment room and a large yard with a deck on one side, hammock on the other and lots of gorgeous pine trees.
What makes this Cabin unique
The location is perfect! It's on Beaver Pond, right next to a trail that leads right to the resort - about a 10 minute walk. A free shuttle picks us up right at our home with all our ski gear and it's great having year-round access to the wonderful rec center which has pools, hot tubs, tennis courts, a work out room, a game room and much more.

This is a perfect house and location.
Absolutely perfect house and neighborhood everything about the stay was great.
It was a pleasure having Thad's group at our cabin. We love getting feedback about our house and the neighborhood. We love and cherish it and we're happy to share it with others.
Good apartment, good layout, good location, well equipped
Everything was great. Just would have hoped that they had turned on the heat before we arrived (with Nest it’s easy) so that we didn’t have to arrive at mid jght with kids in a freezing house.
Great cabin with plenty of space for all
Wonderful cabin with plenty of space for my family. There were 8 of us total - 4 adults and 4 kids aged 5-15.
We enjoyed the easy shuttle pick up to get to the village. We used the kitchen a bunch to make easy meals and enjoyed lounging on the couch. The cabin was stocked with plenty of games to play as well - perfect for our family get together.
Donna was quick to help us with any issues we had - the key code to get inside, fireplace info. We would definitely rent this condo again!
Chalet Madier will be the first place we check for availability whenever we visit Northstar! We are return renters and love everything about this home!
Absolutely Perfect Home Away From Home
Chalet Madier is the perfect home away from home. We stayed here over New Year's with another family (4 adults; 4 kids, ages 7-10) and plan to return this season once more (more if available). Our feedback on various aspects below...
OWNERS: Donna is super responsive. She always responded to our emails and inquiries within a couple hours. The information for check-in was available well in advance of our visit. Instructions for getting into the house were VERY easy.
LOCATION: Have I used the word "perfect" enough? Beaver Pond is a 3 minute shuttle ride to the village. Download the Northstar app and simply request a pickup. We never waited more than 8 minutes to get into or return from the village. Use the NPOA passes to drive over to rec center to relax in hot tub, work out at gym, or let kids play in arcade.
HOME: Charming. Spacious. Updated. Very clean. Fully equipped with everything you could possibly need/want. The kitchen is plentiful when it comes to pots, pans, dishes, glasses. There is a coffee maker, toaster, griddle, cheese boards, baking dishes, extra coffee filters, dish towels, pot holders, dishwasher pods, basic cleaning stuff, etc. Bathrooms have plenty of soap, towels, washrags, toilet tissue, etc. Fireplace and Nest thermostat worked wonderfully and kept everyone warm and toasty. Dishwasher, washer and dryer are updated and work well.
ROOMS: Master upstairs was very spacious. Outside of master bedroom is the bunk room (two twin bunks plus a trundle). In the bunk room (where two kids stayed), there is a TV and foosball table. Kids loved it. Master bathroom (shower, toilet, two sinks) is off that room. Downstairs, there are two bedrooms: One very large one with queen and twin beds - two other kids stayed in that room and the other one slightly smaller (but with plenty space) with a queen-sized bed. Downstairs bath had single sink, bathtub/shower combo, and toilet.
Overall, a REALLY great place. We will definitely check on availability of Chalet Madier before booking Northstar again. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
Very nice cabin, well furnished with quality and character.
Our cabin is located in a residential area of Northstar Ski Resort, walking distance to the resort. During the winter, a free shuttle will pick you and take you to Northstar (with all your ski gear) where you can ski/snowboard, tube, ice skate, bungee jump, eat out and shop.
During the summer, Northstar is transformed into a mountain biker's paradise. The rec center is included with our cabin for a small fee of $3pp per day, and includes a large family swimming pool with water sprouts, three hot tubs, adult lap pool, sauna, large work out room, large video arcade room and lounge. Northstar is a short drive to the beaches of Lake Tahoe (6 miles) and just a few miles to downtown Truckee, a charming village with restaurants, pubs and shops.
Lake Tahoe is pristine lake with many beaches that include dramatic rocks, beautiful views and activities such as kayaking, paddle boarding, water skiing, parasailing and dinner cruises. There are also dozens of hikes around the lake. Plus, the Truckee River is a short distance away and offers River Rafting during the summer and boasts a long bike path that is perfect for biking with the whole family. There are other ski resorts in the vicinity including Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, Incline Village and Kirkwood Village. Tahoe is an amazing place to visit all year long with its mountains, lakes, rivers and charming villages.
Northstar is about 12 miles away from Incline Village where there are casinos, shows and a vibrant night life.
