We stayed here for 3 nights in 1-BR studio. It had a small kitchen with full set of utensils, fireplace, washer dryer. It had everything we could hope for with perfect location and great view out of the window. Place is very neat and clean, elegantly furnished and under 50 yds walk from Gondola, skating rink, etc... Village & skating...

We had a 2bdrm. Kitchen was well stocked, except there were no foil or saran wrap. Didn't bother asking housekeeping. So you may want...

This was our first time, and we will surely be back. We are a family of 4 (2 preschoolers) and we stayed in the 1 bedroom apt.

We were both adult novices looking for a great ski holiday as part of our honeymoon. Northstar is definately the resort to go to as it has a fantastic mixture of nursery/green/blue runs as well as a few black runs. It was the last few weeks of the ski season so the ski school was great - low numbers, no...

This was by far the best experience we have had during a vacation. The room was perfect, beautiful and roomy. Our children enjoyed every part, it was perfect.

“All the 1 bedroom units face Village - noisy & no view. 2 bedroom units have better view, but of course more expensive.”

“See if you can get one facing the hill side. The rooms facing the village has potential to be noisy when it's busy.”

“We loved the unit overlooking the village across from the gondola Big Horn.”

“I preferr the top floor (4-floors) because the views seem better. We had a view of the mountain and ski lift (very peacful & quiet) but next time I'd like to face the inside village with shops & restaurants.”

“Pick room 210, hand down the best spot to be!! I walked right out of the patio and was steps from the Gondola and the village. Looks like one of only two or three units that you could do this from. I cannot wait to come back this winter and ski in and out of the unit, a must for me on any ski trip! If you've never done ski in ski out you don't know what you're missing! As I mentioned above, the inside is immaculate with all the details upgraded.”
