Great place to stay for a week in Lake Tahoe/Northstar. Centrally located in the village, car parking with elevator access, big big rooms with great facilities and ski in (and sort of ski out via a short walk back to the Gondola). Now owned by Vail Ski company. Staff were really helpful too.

Room Tip: The rooms at the end are bigger. Our friends got one of these but we still got a huge room. The snow...

Thank you Chris for taking the time to provide this review. I am glad you enjoyed your visit with us this winter and hope to see you back soon! We too are excited that Vail Resorts now owns the mountain, they truly know how to enhance the resort experience for our guests, such as yourself.

An excellent resort for families wanting to get away for a ski trip with young children with a great village atmosphere. My 3 yr old son was able to go to to day-care/ski school (with 1 hour in the morning and 1 in the afternoon on skis) which was fantastic for him and us. Babysitters were also readily available and excellent allowing the adults to also have a holiday. The location speaks for itself (with some 12 resorts in the area and overlooking Lake Tahoe). It has everything you need in the village and the prices are suprisingly reasonable at the restaurants and bars.

We stayed here for a mountain bike race in July. We chose the Iron Horse Building because it was in the center of the village. We absolutely loved the location of the Iron Horse Building and the condo. The condo was very upscale with cuisinart everything , super comfy bed, nice bathroom, and great balcony. Very modern tvs living room and bedroom, and very comfy furnshings well stocked with coffee etc. The parking was great because you parked in a garage took the elevator right to the condo. Bellman was nicest man on earth and so was the staff that checked us in. The fitness center, steam rooms, hot tubs all immaculate and I am super picky about stuff like that. We enjoyed all the amenities there as well as the gondola and some good shopping. We ate at Rubicon Pizza and at the restaurant on top of the Gondola all was very good. I recommend venturing into Truckee for some fine dining and to Tahoe just to check it out very pretty lake.
Nice area and great vacation !!

Room Tip: check out Truckee for some great dining options

Thank you so much for taking the time to submit a review of your visit to the Iron Horse Lodge in the Village at Northstar this summer. I am glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you finished well in the mountain bike race. Please come back and join us for another visit as there are incredible mountain bike trails to explore at Northstar, outside of the park where you raced, as well as in the North Lake Tahoe area. Look forward to seeing you again soon!

This is the third time we stayed at Tahoe Moutain Resort. Great place for family vacation. Summer time has good value. Not very crowded. My kids enjoyed skating in the ring, swimming pool and the fitness center where they have pool table. Excellent facility where everyone can enjoy. I like the kitchen, very equipped. You only need to bring food. The unit has everything you need. Laundry in the house makes it convenient. At night, we enjoyed the fireplace at the ring and marshmellow. We went with my parents and kids (6 and 9). We all have a great time. The unit makes you feel like home.

We stayed in Iron Horse South. The staff was amazing from reservations through check out. The room was immiculate and fully stocked with everything we would need during our stay. The village supplied numerous activities for young and old alike. We will definitely be back for another stay.

We stayed at Iron Horse South for our February break, and everything was perfect. The location - right in the village - is ideal. We got a few feet of snow during our visit, and getting into the car would've been impossible. However, all of the shops and restaurants in the village were open and within easy walking distance. Also, with underground parking, we didn't have to scrape 5 feet of snow off of our car! The gondola to the Ritz only shut down once due to high winds late in the evening, and a shuttle was provided instead. The ski and snowboard school were easily reached and stayed open throughout the storm - the kids loved it! The condo was luxurious - so well decorated and very well-thought out appliances. Very nice dishes, and great brand-new washer/dryer. We stayed in a 3-bedroom condo. We loved kicking back by the gas fireplace at night. We can't wait for our next visit. Safeway is only about a 10-min drive - and worth the view of the lake. You can also buy quick meals and supplies at a couple of the shops in the village.

we had a three bedroom with full kitchen service, i must say that the kitchen had everything that we needed to make home away from home relatively comfortable.
the queen/tween bed were a bit small. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Overall a good experience.
