Ski-in/ski-out lodge with room for four, cozy fireplace & shared hot tub!

For a long weekend or a luxurious week away with your favorite travel buddies, stay at this ski-in/ski-out Northstar-Truckee vacation rental. Park underground, warm up by the fireplace, and relax in comfort.

Conveniently located in the Northstar California Resort's Catamount building, right in the middle of the Village, this condo puts you front and center. Adrenaline-rush lovers can visit the fitness center, ski or board premier runs (the Big Springs Gondola can be reached on skis from your door), mountain bike, play tennis, and more. Vacationers who prefer to sit back and relax can visit the hot tubs, saunas, firepits, go golfing or horseback riding, get a massage, or simply shop for gifts. There's something for everyone here in summer and winter, and it's easily accessible by foot or shuttle.

Return to your one-bedroom condo feeling exhausted, but happily so. Four friends or a small family will be glad to return to this warm and inviting getaway that exudes a pure Tahoe feel with classic decor.

Fall into the living room armchairs and flick on the flatscreen TV to see what's on the cable or to watch a DVD. Fill the space with your favorite music via the stereo or sound dock. Meanwhile, the gas fireplace will create atmosphere. In summer, you can look out over the Village from your balcony. WiFi is also provided.

Next to the living room is the fully stocked kitchen that provides updated, stainless steel appliances so that you can store and heat up take out from the nearby eateries or even fix up a meal from scratch (provisions are available on site or at the closest supermarket). The breakfast bar and six-seat dining table offer convenient spots to savor favorites.

While close friends or children can take the pull-out sofa bed in the living room, by the fireplace no less, sweethearts may opt to nab the master bedroom, which has a spacious king-size bed before large picture windows.

Everyone will have easy access to the huge bathroom complete with a deep soaking tub, stand-alone shower, and double sinks. There's even a powder room, so a full party of four won't have any problem having privacy.

This well-appointed rental sleeps up to four, but has an additional lock-off studio adjoining it with room for two more guests as well as a kitchenette – just ask us about booking Catamount #101-A and #101 together. If you only want a small space to rest your head, consider #101-A alone.

Visited Northstar numerous times, but don't often explore the whole of beautiful Lake Tahoe? Take a day or two to do just that while staying at the Catamount lodge. Visit the beaches in summer, from sandy Kings Beach on the northern tip (about eight miles away) of the lake to exciting Camp Richardson at the southern end (a gorgeous 50-mile drive through the wooded mountains). Along the lake are waterfront restaurants, shops, and marinas to rent craft.

Northstar lodging is at its best here at the Catamount. Book this North Lake Tahoe vacation rental for the next time you have a few days to spend away from it all.

A damage waiver, covering up to $2,000 of accidental damage to the property or its contents, is included in the cost of your reservation.

You must be 21 years or older to rent this property.

80 +/- steps to gondola. Hot tubs and steam room. Bed not so great as center support is missing. Well supplied kitchen. Need dishwasher soap and laundry detergent to complete checkout procedures
Manager response:
Carol, thank you for providing your valuable feedback! Our apologies if the bed did not meet your expectations. Please know that we do our best to provide guests with the comfort and satisfaction they deserve. Local staff is always available to assist if there are amenities in the home that fall short. We hope to have a chance to host you next time. Thank you!
Carla R. Jan 2020
Unbeatable location. Comfortable, cozy and clean. Just wish the hot tub access didn’t require going outside and around to the fitness entrance. Make sure you get extra key cards because they de-magnatize easily. We got locked out and i had to jump through snow all the way across the village in my towel to the Tahoe resorts desk to get another card key. Otherwise, all good!

If you like skiing Northstar this unit is unbeatable It is about 50 yards to the gondola and closer still to the end of the village ski run. We parked in the underground lot and the car never moved for days. The fitness center and outdoor heated spa is about 30 feet from the front door and really nice. very well equipped and all the furnishings and finishes were 4 star hotel standards or better. only issue is the thermostat is very complicated and the instructions were just as complicated and i could not figure out how to turn the heat up and down. A one page simple guide would be great. I can see if you added the lock off 101A it would be great for a larger group with 3 bathrooms and 3 TV's
Manager response:
Thank you for telling us about your visit. Our new property manager will be taking care of the issues you encountered. We hope to see you again!

We went up weekend before Thanksgiving and stayed the day before Thanksgiving. Although the Northstar ski slopes are not opened, but we had a great time. Super nice to have a balcony where our little one can play without us all going out when finally snowed. This is first time we stayed on the first floor, but we liked it since we don't need to get on the elevator. Just walk in. :)
Ice skate rink, movie theater, and swimming pool / hot tub are good alternative than skiing. Also close enough to go King Beach and Tahoe City.
Unit was clean and it was super nice to have option for the early check in. We will come back again.

Quiet, Clean, & Spacious
Rachel P. Sep 2019
Had a wonderful evening. Only stayed one night with hubby and son. Great place. Lots of room and very clean. We have a condo in BH Utah that we rent out as well. So we know what is to be expected. Adorable village. It was like a mini Whistler.
Denise A. Aug 2019
This property suited our small family of 4. It was decorated so nicely and very clean. The pull out was fine for our 14 year olds. The master bedroom bed has a Tempur-pedic topper which we do not prefer. That is the only downfall if you do not like that. Also there needs to be better pillows and more linens for the beds available when we check in. Anything that came up they were immediately responsive to.

We've rented ski condo's in CO for years. This was our first family trip to Northstar. Although not the biggest or most challenging, it is an excellent mountain and Village for families. The Catamount building is precisely between the ice rink and the gondola (minimal steps to both) so you can't beat the location. Unit #101 is clean, well appointed, and nicely decorated (although not listed, there is a W/D in unit). You can walk in socks to your ski locker which is a huge plus! I would recommend this unit to anyone....
Fernando B. Feb 2019
We loved the proximity to the lift and ski rentalstore as well as the fireplace and kitchen appliances! Thanks a lot.
Greg H. Jan 2019
Condo is on the first floor and only about 60 ft from your personal ski locker that comes with the condo, another 80 ft and your on the gondola. The condo is roomy, nice furniture, and has a well stocked kitchen. One downside was that the bedroom thermostat was set on a program to kick the temp up to 74 at night, took a while to figure out how to override it. The hot tubs were close by, although you had to go outside the building and back into the building through the fitness center to access them. You are only steps from the shops and restaurants of the village, and the underground heated parking can not be beat.
Jane P. Dec 2018
If you're looking for a nice place to stay in the Northstar village that makes getting to and from the Gondola a piece of cake then look no further! Less than a minute walk to the Gondola line. Perfect place to stay for a couple or 3 people.
Timothy K. Nov 2018
It was clean and cozy
We loved being right in the village where we could stroll though the stores, walk to the movie theatre and go to the bar and spa.
Joseph C. Oct 2018
My son and I really enjoyed this unit. Plenty of room, well appointed, and located away from the bustle of the village.
Erika B. Sep 2018
Note that this unit is at ground level which is convenient but you don't have a private balcony.
Unit had lots of DVDs to use while there which was nice. Had tons of extra supplies - dish soap, garbage bags, dishwasher detergent (except paper towels which was weird, we did not have even one extra & ran out). Kitchen was extremely well equipped even with a lemon juicer which most units here at Northtstar don't have (we have stayed at over 20). Room was very clean & everything was in good condition. Forgot to let the renter know that the ice machine doesn't appear to be working. There was ice in the tub but it wouldn't come out the front. No biggie. Tons of extra towels...but only 2 washcloths total in both bathrooms - we needed more as there was 4 of us.

Would definitely rent this condo again. Maybe housekeeping can be a little more consistent with their supplies tho ;)
Jack G. Sep 2018
Very quiet area for being on the first floor. Easy access to everything in the Village.
Stacey B. Aug 2018
Everything was wonderful and will definitely come back to this unit.
Thomas L. Jul 2018
The room was clean and in good shape. The local rep for Vacasa was Great! She responded right away when we needed something and made sure our stay was good.
James N. Jul 2018
Really enjoyed our stay. Would recommend for those being close to the action in the village.
Jessica C. Jul 2018
We love staying at the Village at Northstar. This condo was great for a family of four and no more. The only thing we were not happy with was the lack of communication with Vacasa. They did not clue us in on any of the activities going on within Northstar. We missed the 4th of July kids parade at the Village and when we contacted the only # for the front desk they said it was Vacasa responsibility. Other than that the location is wonderful.
Brad S. Jun 2018
Very nice 1 bedroom condo, nice and comfortable amenities, great location. If visiting in the summer, expect a hot room when you arrive, as it is asked by management to turn off all the air when you leave, and it doesn’t seem anyone comes to turn it on prior to your arrival. Based on the window location in the living room, it gets direct sun in the morning and heats the room up a great deal. On a nice 74 degree day, our room was 82 degrees upon arrival at 4pm. If this issue could be worked out, great stay.
Shawn H. Mar 2018
Spacious, excellent location, high ceilings, excellent amenities, open floor plan, great windows and lighting, large bathroom, overall lovely, will stay again for sure!
Brian B. Mar 2018
Perfect location on 1st floor right next to gondola and ticket office. Easy check in/check out and covered parking right below unit. Jacuzzi and fitness center around the corner. Very pleased! 😁
Pamela L. Feb 2018
The location of this unit is wonderful. If you have any questions or need help, unfortunately it is hard to get in touch with anyone.
Donald C. Feb 2018
Location of Vacasa is superb. This first floor unit has upgraded finishes and furnishings throughout, and underground parking adjacent to elevator is a great advantage. This is the closest location to the gondola, and is away from village noise. Ski locker and on-site spas/steam/sauna are a definite plus. Highly recommend this unit.
Jaycee C. Jan 2018
The checkin process was smooth and easy.. The location was killer, right next to the Gondola and nearby lockers for our skis/snowboards was awesome! We really enjoyed our stay and only recommend extra pillow cases and cone shaped coffee filters for the drip coffee maker, though they did provide a keurig just none of the stores in the village had correct filters or sold pods so I recommend you bring either. If you like Starbucks its right outside the front door.. (committed coffee addict)
Anand S. Dec 2017
Nice unit, consistent with other 1-bedrooms at Northstar. But we had some minor issues. Oven was broken, patio was icy almost causing significant injury, and little things like no Kleenex in the room. They did have some nice amenities like many games and marshmallow skewers.
Manager response:
We apologize for these inconveniences and understand how they can affect a stay. The oven is repaired, we have placed tissues in the home, and we have cleaned up the snow. Regular snow/ice clean-up will be taking place at the home this winter. Thank you!
Melanie C. Nov 2017
This is a wonderful condo. Comfortable and cozy with all the amenities one could hope for in a vacation getaway. Having a choice between making coffee with a Keurig or coffee maker in the morning, then enjoying it on the private patio overlooking the village was a great way to start the days. The beds couches and beds were soft and inviting, a welcome respite after busy days. Highly recommend this condo for anyone visiting Northstar!
Kelley W. Oct 2017
Overall, great experience!
Mike D. Aug 2017
Spend some time in Northstar Village and the surrounding Truckee area, you will thoroughly enjoy it. Stop by the Squeeze In for one of their famous omelettes, Bar of America for the blackend fish tacos, or hang out at the resort for a fabulous Rubicon pizza. Plenty of hiking, sight seeing, and shopping to be had. If you are an avid mountain biker there is no better place.
Nichole F. Jul 2017
Great place
Great atmosphere
The Gondola with a mini hike was inexpensive ($15) was great with fantastic views, take your camera
Chuck R. May 2017
Beautiful place, comfortable, spacious and nicely appointed. The heated bathroom floors were the luxurious touch that put it over the top. The views are spectacular and the bear we saw on Northstar Drive was a fun bonus.
Ush P. Feb 2017
Overall a great location, unit and facilities however Vacasa local rep was useless and unresponsive.
Jacqueline K. Feb 2017
The condo was nice, but if you need something there is no one at Vacasa to get a hold of.
Arthur P. Jan 2017
This is the perfect Northstar location, however the property owner is let down by poor organisation for housekeeping and service. Our second bed wasn't made up and there was confusion as to wether the adjoining mini unit was ours as well. There wasn't a blanket for sofa bed. We waited overnight and the Vacassa Manager promptly delivered one the next day. Not a major issue but the property is 5 star.
Tara And Eric S. Jan 2017
Catamount 101 was an ideal ski vacation condo - family of 4 at most - ENJOY!!!
Marlena D. Nov 2016
Absolutely gorgeous condo, loved everything about it. Unfortunately the village was closed without us knowing it until we were already there, therefore we didn't get to enjoy the great location we had. But the condo itself was amazing.
Elizabeth G. Sep 2016
Lake Tahoe is a great place to vacation Loved staying at Northstar
Erik S. Jun 2016
Friendly and very communicative. All instructions were very clear!! We will use again!
Kate B. May 2016
This condo was clean and cozy. The bed was comfortable and the kitchen well stocked. I could not have been happier with my stay!
Alice K. Mar 2016
Our family stayed in this lovely home in the Village. It was such a convenient location near the gondola for the parents and near the Kids Ski School for the kids.
Rochelle P. Mar 2016
This location is ideal for skiers. The condo is beautiful, spacious and comfortable. My husband and daughter had 3 great days here. Steps from the kids ski school, gondola, ice skating, dinner. We enjoyed having a separate hot tub in this building and a steam room. Although the spa had too much chlorine and destroyed all of our swim suits.
Manager response:
We are sorry to see that the hot tub chemicals hurt your swimsuits, and we will be sure to check that everything is balanced as it should be.
Diane W. Mar 2016
Clean, location was great.... wonderful weekend
George W. Jan 2016
We had a missed cleaning after having paid an enormous cleaning fee. There has been no attempt to return our cleaning fee. This is unfair.
Manager response:
We are very sorry that housekeeping missed getting the home cleaned prior to your arrival. The Property Manager is investigating the situation, and we will be sure these guests are taken care of.
Brian F. Jan 2016
My wife and I enjoyed a week in Catamount #101 - it was perfect. The location is fantastic, the unit was great for the two of us, and we had a great time on the slopes. We will definitely be back.
Tak C. Jan 2016
The condo was literally just steps away from the gondola ... very convenient. The village is terrific with lots of options for food, activities and shopping. The Condo itself was very clean and comfortable. We enjoyed our vacation immensely.
George W. Jan 2016
Can not go wrong with this unit.
