We had another great trip to Northstar - Jeff and Michele's place always exceeds expectations!
As always, we had a fantastic week at Jeff and Michele's place. It's perfectly appointed, very comfortable, and in a great location. My boys and I had blast skiing Northstar over the holiday weekend - and the apres ski in the townhouse. Thanks again!
The five of use had a really nice 10 days over the holidays. Very comfortable and cozy living room with a nice fireplace. Incredible kitchen that we cooked great dinners in every night. The granite kitchen island was perfect for all the preparations, and there was ample tableware, along with cooking pots and pans, and more. The dining table was more than big enough for the 5 of us.
We loved the convenience of the all-day Northstar shuttle service to the village and slopes. The shuttle stop was a very short walk (3 minutes?) from the unit. The gym (also accessible by shuttle) was a huge plus, including its family hot/warm tub that we took the 3 year old to. Though we could've used more space for our belongings, we we able to make it work. It was a nice, homey environment surrounded by trees and nature. It was well stocked with the basic necessities, which you don't always encounter. Overall, it was really relaxing, enjoyable, and convenient.
Note that we did not notice any issues with heater noises that we'd read about in other reviews. Our 3 year old slept soundly and loved getting to be in the top bunk.
We loved the place!before getting there, I was a little concerned about being a bit far away from the village, but as the listing said, it is only a short walk and distance was absolutely not an issue. If anything, it was better not to be in the super busy/loud area. The condo is large and felt very homy. I was a bit surprised not to have much closet space available for our stuff but we made it work, no pb. I would absolutely recommend the place to all. My daughters and I would definitely stay there again. Like everyone else, we particularly appreciated the kitchen. Very important to us ;-).
Everything was perfectly organized and prepared for our arrival. Was perfect for our weekend events at the Ritz, and will definitely be back again. Thanks!
Had a lovely little stay at Pine Bough! Michele's correspondence was quick and informational. And the directions and instructions were very easy to follow.
My friends and I had a great time! Loved that it was a nice quick walk to and from the Village. Even though the shuttle is so close we chose to walk because it was so beautiful! And made a few friends along the way:) We ran a Tough Mudder during our stay so to say that the shower and jetted tub were spectacularly appreciated is quite the understatement! :) And the bed was super comfy as well! Great kitchen with everything that we needed for our simple meals. The balcony made for a nice quite little area to eat, drink and relax at.
This is not a complaint in any way... But the closet-turned-half bath made us giggle quite a bit;) verrrryy clever!
I'd definitely recommend for a pleasant get away and stay!
About the Host, Jeff And Michele
We are an active, fun-loving, food-loving, friendly family from the SF Bay Area. Jeff works in the hubbub of silicon valley and Michele is a teacher and family therapist. We enjoy the Lake Tahoe region so much, we spend a lot of time there hiking, splashing around the lakes, riding our boards on the mountains, and just relaxing. The natural beauty of the Sierra's is amazing and truly unbeatable. We own a cute condo on the Northstar California resort just a few minutes walk from the village, and we like to chill and entertain friends and family there during every season. We're happy share this haven with like-minded people from time to time, so let us know if you're interested. Thanks!
