Northstar Mountain Village Resort
Reviewed 3 July 2013

Northstar Mountain Village is set on the Kimberley ski hill at the top of the first lift. The view from our condo was breath taking. The Rocky Mountain trench in it's full glory. The condo was beautifully appointed with comfortable beds and furniture. An upscale mountain theme made it cozy and warm. There was everything we needed to prepare our meals and as it was three sisters re-united for three evenings we all had the opportunity to prepare our favorite meals!
Plan to go back...again and again......

Initially drawn to Kimberley, BC to meet several new "stars" in our family "constellation" (notably 11 year old Micahel and 6 month old Adrien), we chose to stray from our traditional addiction to well-recognized chain hotels, by booking a mountain condo. From my 1st conversation with Reservations Manager, Kathy Smith, I sensed that the Northstar would provide just the ambience and comfort we were seeking. The staff was exceptionally pleasant and helpful; our two bedroom, two bathroom unit was extremely comfortable, immaculate and the perfect size for four adults and two children, AND included a garage (a comforting luxury since we were driving a rental car and the bears were out in full-force.) Because we were re-connecting with family who hosted delicious home-cooked meals, we did not utilize but were impressed by, the well-equppied kitchen and deck with barbecue and patio table. Spectacular mountain views enjoyed from the vantage point of the hot tub on our deck enhanced our visit. Granite countertops and comfortable furnishings added to our enjoyment. In fact the Northstar may draw us back for a repeat visit in 2014. Our next stay will be longer. Two days did not allow adequate time to visit our family AND enjoy the amenities of the Village. If you can visit only one spot in BC, this should be your destination. I can't help but proudly mention the fact that the station for the railway which operates for tourists from late May until summer's end is at the base of the mountain. This tourist attraction was initially built with "no money" and a dream on the part of my uncle (at 92 our oldest family "star") and three of his friends. It is an example of the ingenuity and determination of Canadians-the pioneering spirit and the ability to "make do" with very little that still prevails.

From that 1st phone call to the completion of a phenomenal vacation we thank Kathy and staff and the creators of the Northstar for contributing that extra sprinkle of starlight to a magical holiday.

Room Tip: You might want to be on a higher level (we were on the ground floor) if bears are plentiful and you...

Thank you for the review of your stay at Northstar Mountain Village. We agree that it is a star on the mountain. We are so glad that you had a wonderful trip to Kimberley and Northstar. We are also happy to hear that you were able to experience the Kimberley Mining Railway as it is another star within Kimberley. We do hope you come back in 2014 and please stay with us again at Northstar Mountain Village.

We stayed here for 8 nights in February. 2 adults and 2 children. Check in was quick and easy.
Our condo was a ground floor 2 bed facing the slopes. Was clean, tidy and completely unmarked. Almost as if we were the first to stay here.....

A private hot tub was on the balcony which was also spotlessly clean and very welcome!

Also used the swimming pool which was also clean and pleasant enough.

Cannot recommend enough and can't wait to go back again.

We exchanged through Interval International to stay at this resort, maybe that is why we were placed in an older outdated unit. Stayed March 3-8th, 2013 for a family ski holiday. Party consisted of 2 adults and 2 children.

The ski hill at Kimberley was fantastic for families and the Northstar Resort has an ideal location with ski in / ski out convenience.

Our villa was on the second floor and the was another villa above us. I wished there wasn't because these villas have absolutely no soundproofing and we could hear every step, cough, coversation above us. We asked to be moved but were coldly told that they had to put us in a villa that Interval told them to put us in (we have used dozens of Interval getaways and exchanges and this is the first time that a resort has been unwilling to move us to a better villa).

The villa was spacious enough and the kitchen and living room were very nice. The bathrooms were on the small side and were just average in amenities. The televisions in the living room and bedroom were ridiculous (they were old CRT tube type tv's and the living room tv was only 21 inches and the master bedroom tv was only 17 inches). Definitely overdue for a flat screen upgrade.

The hot tub on the front deck was very nice and was clean.

The resort's fitness room was laughable (1 elliptical machine and 1 treadmill; no weights or exercise bikes at all).

Overall, we loved the town of Kimberley and the ski hill. We really liked the location of the Northstar Resort, but it does need a few minor upgrades for us to want to come back.

Our family of 5 stayed here in October, 2012 and didn't really know what to expect. It met and exceeded all expectations! We were there during the low season, so it was very peaceful and serene. Our condo was on the bottom level with a walk out to a gorgeous view of stunning fall colours. The condo is very spacious with a full kitchen perfect for making simple meals and a large dining table for a family. The interior is modern, but mountain rustic, so you know you are away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The beds were actually comfortable and two bathrooms handy. My husband did not like the faux suede bedding - it was a bit of a nuisance as it was unwieldy and heavy. We had a good laugh - the shower mechanism is a bit difficult to figure out and judging from how loose the hardware was, others had a hard time figuring it out too! The private hot tub was well-used, but the temperature could have been set a bit higher.

Am currently staying at this great resort. Units are very nicely decorated, have all the amenities, beds are super comfy, kitchen is perfect. So many windows with amazing views. Our two small kids feel right at home (which is half the battle!). They had two university groups here for a ski weekend and we didn't hear them at all, likely because they have a really strict noise policy after 11pm. Perfect! Windows were quite drafty, but that is only minor complaint.

We were so impressed by Northstar mountain village. The condos are huge, we felt so lucky to stay at such a beautiful place. Awesome ski in/ ski out access to lifts. Easy to get T-Bar home in the afternoon or for lunch. Can't wait to come back to this 'fairy-tale' place. Highly recommend.
