“luxury mountain condos”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 January 2014

Have stayed winter (ski in and ski out) and summer (walked down the hill to the restaurant in the Trickle Creek!). We stayed in a 3 bed 3 bath condo with friends. Rustic furniture and very comfy beds! Loved that we had our own hot tub (every condo does!). There is a small store on site and a heated swimming pool that can be used all year round. Having your own transport is preferable. We had a blast and will return again.

We plan an annual ski vacation to Kimberley for a group of about 12 people and have stayed here the last 2 years. Loved it both times. Great locaiton at the top of the bunny hill. Easy to ski down to the lifts each morining and take the T-bar back up at the end of the day. We booked one 3 bedroom and one two bedroom unit. These units are well equiped, clean & comfy. Great value when the cost is split between a group.

We arrived to find our 2 BR walkout unit in immaculate condition. The place was spotless, bathrooms and bedrooms impeccably clean. All amenities in great condition complete with a large flat panel TV. We quickly hit the Hot Tub which overlooked the skihill finding it clean, up to temperature and a relaxing retreat after our drive in from Calgary. Everything about the unit, the front desk and shared community pool area was fantastic. Clean, modern and nicely decorated. They even had snacks, personal items and movies to rent (how convenient)! Speaking of the front desk.....Noraleigh greeted us with a smile, answered all our questions and sent us quickly on our way. She definitely went out of her way to make our stay a memorable one, even ensuring our breakfast plans were looked after. If you need advice about the local area talk with Noraleigh at the front desk! We are definitely going back to Northstar!

Room Tip: Ask for a walkout unit if your planning to ski to your door. These units will have the best views f...

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 December 2013

I spent three nights here with my wife and another couple and we all very much enjoyed ourselves. We stayed in a 2 BR unit in the "F" building that overlooked the valley and the mountains in the distance. We were surprised at how quiet that it was and enjoyed that part greatly. We did some light shopping and dining in town and went to the nearby Cranbrook for a meal (see other review's posted on our dining) and to Fort Steele as an outing. Also, the hot tub on the deck was heartily enjoyed.

The unit was very comfortable and easy to live and rest in for those few days. However, there are some things to remember when preparing to come to the Northstar Mountain Village.

These are condos, so you will need to bring whatever cooking spices, dry and wet goods that you will need for in house cooking. The two bedroom unit we stayed in had two single beds on one of the rooms. We were aware of this so it was not a big deal. They have several strict rules which are for the enjoyment of everyone there and we appreciated them, but could be a sticking point depending on what you plan to do there. I was pleasantly surprised at the internet speed but it did not allow for good video streaming so take some DVD's or relax without TV for a few days. Try to get a unit that overlooks the valley, since those will have the best view. Be prepared for the weather in the winter as it can get very cold with a sharp wind chill factor.

I would encourage you to contact management with any and all questions, they were very friendly and helpful. I would like to return in the spring/summer time frame to see how beautiful it is during that part of the year.

Room Tip: Any unit that has a view of the valley or one that is close to the pool if that is your fancy.

In Early September I hosted a birthday party and had all my friends over. It was cheap the service could not have been better and the rooms were amazing. Some of the other rooms beside us were a bit loud but we got over that. the beds were extremely comfy and the fireplace was beautiful. I felt right at home.

We booked this on an Interval Exchange and it was just beautiful. We stayed in a 2 BR cabin , three dories with the BR's upstairs. It is very spacious, could probably sleep 6. The unit is in excellent condition, new and with good furniture and SS alliances in the kitchen. It has one car attached garage, and one balcony off the main floor wit BBQ and table and one patio downstairs with a jetted tub. There are 3 BA in the unit and a W&D on the top floor with the two BR's.
Our unit overlooked the forest and the mountains and it was very quiet, private and well maintained.

Room Tip: No room service or spa.

We stayed in a 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom unit on an exchange from Interval International. We arrived early and the staff were very accommodating and let us check into the condo right away.. Very well appointed kitchen with everything you need. Spacious and clean unit.Gas stone fireplace in the living room. Large bedrooms with very comfortable beds and pillows. Small but adequate bathrooms. Lots of hot water. Private hot tub & BBQ on a large deck which also had a large round table and 4 chairs. Fast fee internet. We loved the heavy wood furniture and beams, very unique....Quiet peaceful surroundings. We were lucky enough to see a bear and deer during our stay here. I would have given this lodge an excellent rating if it hadn't been for these minor things... Bring your own toiletries as they only provide soap, and only one of the bathrooms had Kleenex. The master bedroom did not have a clock radio, some of the lights weren't working, and the only phone in the unit was cordless and didn't hold a charge. The pool is closed after middle of October for the winter. No restaurant on sight but you are only a few minutes away from local eateries. Our GPS did not accept the address but if you put in Gerry Sorensen Way, just continue on the paved road to the top and it is the last Resort on the right before the road turns to gravel.
I would definitely stay here again and recommend to others. It was a great week!!!!!

Room Tip: Some units are facing the ski hill and others the woods. If you prefer one location ask when you boo...
