“convienience in a quaint little town”
Reviewed 20 February 2010

We found Alpine Lodge on line while planning a 3 day snowboarding trip to Gore Mt. The pictures accurately display the setting of the rooms, rustic look with tons of comfort. We were met by the manager, Scott, as we pulled up in the morning way before check in time but since they had just finished cleaning the room he let us move our bags in while we went to the mountain. Scott was the consumate manager always available with a recommendation and able to answer questions.

I was anticipating a "lodge" when we arrived but the setting is more of a motel style, still very cute tho. There is a common room that is cozy and available to watch TV, sit by the fire or play games, it seems to be under used.

We stayed in a Deluxe Queen. The bed was very comfortable, a flat screen TV/DVD on the wall toward the foot of the bed, there were two rocking chairs to sit in, the bathroom is an odd layout but very functional and there is a back deck with 2 chairs that overlooks a parking lot. We were very happy with the accommodations and the shuttle that is available to Gore was so conveinient I would definitly go back.

Scott showed us around to other rooms that were not occupied and all the rooms looked as comfy as ours. If planning a longer trip the apartments and eagles nest would definitly be an option.

There are some really good restaurants in the area just as Scott for a recommendation. Though the lodge is gay friendly don't expect to find a "gay" night life.

We just got back from a wonderful relaxing visit to Gore Mt, where we stayed at the Alpine Lodge in North Creek. We loved our visit and highly recommend this hotel for anyone staying in the area and especially for anyone planning to ski at Gore.

Alpine is very clean, comfortable and much more quaint than a typical Motel. You can tell it is newer and well cared for by the owners who did a fantastic job sending out pre-trip communication including suggested restaurants nearby. They organized a voucher for our 2 day ski lift tickets and it was waiting in our room for us when we got to the lodge.

There is no need to go to the desk to check in on arrival. The email we got a week ahead of time included door code and recap of our plans. No need for us to follow up - it was all done for us just as arranged. Probably one of the easiest least stressful hotel booking and check in/out experiences ever!

We stayed in a Standard King room. Large roomy bed, warm and cozy - quiet while we were there but didn't feel the noise level would change even if all the rooms were booked. Our TV had built in DVD which we appreciated. Great free high speed internet and super cell phone reception even when it was not so good other parts of town. Bathroom is galley style but roomy enough and shower was well lit and easy to regulate.

Best of all Alpine was VERY convenient. Less then 10 min drive to Gore Mt. And we were able to walk to breakfast and dinner each night in North Creek. Highly recommend Laura's for dinner (but she is closed Mon and Tues so plan accordingly) and Bar Vino for dinner. Loved breakfast at Marsha's our last day and enjoyed our breakfast sandwich at Sarah's as well.

North Creek is a fun friendly small town. Alpine Lodge is the perfect place to stay in town and so close to the mountain. Gore is a great mountain to ski - not at all crowded and very well groomed. Wonderful trip all together! Will definitely come back and stay at Alpine when we do.

Located in the main street, a short walk to great restaurants and stores (even in cold weather). The people are great and the room was beautiful (the standard king room).
Go to the snowmobile tours of Loon Lake - it was so much fun!

I planned a last minute ski getaway for New Years 2010. We didn't know what to expect of the alpine lodge and of north creek because we had never been there. What a pleasant surprise! FINALLY! A completely new and renovated place. There are beautiful log beds and REAL bedding and pillows and a ceiling fan! It was so nice to NOT walk into the room and not smell 30 years worth of cigarette smoke. It smelled of fresh paint and wood. Not only was the room great, but the alpine lodge is set right on main street in north creek with great restaurants and a supermarket within feet of the room! Believe me it was freezing outside and it was STILL a short walk to breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Let me tell you - the food in north creek is incredible and I am a food snob from long island. The service was so personal. Scott was on call for any questions we had! We are already planning our spring white water rafting getaway!

Our trip to North Creek was spur of the moment and we were fortunate to find Alpine Lodge. The town was quiet which added to our goal of "getting away" from the rat race. The Alpine Lodge was the best. Easy walks to breakfast and dinner added to the experience. We'll be back!

We were a group of 2 families, with 2 children under 2. The hotel is clean, comfortable, and all new. The lack of a front desk didn't bother us at all, the key codes worked smoothly. I am giving only a 3 for service since there didn't seem to be any, I don't know what would have happened if we'd needed to use the service phone for something. I would have been happier if the rooms were set back from the road a bit more, it was noisy at night. Neither of our rooms had tubs and the sinks were pretty small, which was a bit of a setback for bathtime for the young kids, but otherwise no complaints. Within easy walking distance of everything in town and less than 10 mintues from Gore Mt (check out the gondola ride, awesome). It was also the only place for about 20 miles where our cell phones worked. I would definitely stay again without hesitation.
