Don't let the Northstar Resort name lure you. The late check-in was a hassle since there is no one onsite after hours. They did not send check-in instructions because they claim they do not receive email addresses when clients books through Expedia, so we were left trying to figure it out on our own. We had to track down a security for the entry code to the condo. The condo was not clean, the floor in the kitchen was sticky, like someone had spilled soda all over. We had to wear shoes in the condo because the floors were so dirty. The bed is a Murphy bed, which is not disclosed in the property description. It was surprisingly comfortable and the sheets were clean. The shower curtain was stained and the water pressure was barely enough to rinse shampoo from your hair. This condo is hugely overpriced for what you get, I won't book here again.

The suite was nice. Loved that we had a full kitchen. Didn't like that we didn't have a fan.

The property itself is very outdated. Not only this, but it was extremely hot during the day, so we couldn't stay in if we wanted to take a break. No A/C to cool off, so that made things worse.

A good stay but having to wait for staff for over 45 min. to get a parking permit so you won’t get a ticket or towed at check in is not ok. I really enjoyed all amenities offered but be aware everything closes around 8:30 both in village and in town, so be sure to get early dinner.

It was not clear that our reservation was not exactly at the resort as pictured. We were at Timber creek lodge which is at the back of the resort. It's very dated and dirty carpet in the hall and the unit. The unit bathroom is tiny. Sophia at the desk was very nice.

Very dirty, no clean towels, most restaurants are closed and the one that we ate at was horrible and very expensive. Will never stay here again. Water in shower was brown, carpet in room was disgusting. Also if you are not an owner you have to pay for all amenities per person. To use the swimming pool area was $8 a person and $2 a towel. Rooms are very small and beds are very uncomfortable. For the price not worth it!!!
