What is a Vacation Rental?


At Northstar California, we generally define a vacation rental as a house, townhome or condo owned by a private individual, that is available for rent. We’ve listened to our guests and recognize there are a number of benefits to staying at one of our vacation rentals versus a hotel when visiting Lake Tahoe. Some of these benefits include:


More Space

Instead of small rooms with only one or two beds, Northstar vacation rentals allow the entire family to stay comfortably under the same roof. This kind of accommodation is well-suited for extended stays.


More Amenities

Northstar vacation rental properties offer more amenities than hotels – in many cases, including fully-equipped kitchens, laundry facilities, fireplaces, private hot tubs, and access to the resort’s Recreation Center.


Great Location

Staying at Northstar means you don’t have to worry about driving anywhere once you get here. The resort provides a free on-site shuttle service during shuttle operating days and hours, making it easy for guests to be on the slopes or shopping in the Village at Northstar™ in minutes. Northstar also offers vacation rentals that are located slopeside, providing guests with the convenience of ski-in/ski-out access…try that from your hotel room!



Free from the people and environment that comes with noisy hotels, privacy is one of the biggest benefits offered by Northstar vacation rentals.


What is a vacation rental property at Northstar, and how does it differ from a hotel?

Northstar vacation rentals offer an alternative to traditional hotel-style family vacations. Instead of small rooms with only one or two beds, Northstar vacation rentals allow the entire family to stay comfortably under the same roof in private homes, townhomes or condos. These properties offer more space and amenities – in many cases, offering fully equipped kitchens, laundry facilities, private hot tubs, as well as a private environment without the annoyances of noisy hotels. Whether you’re looking for a family getaway or a romantic weekend for two, Northstar vacation rentals offer more selection, amenities, space, and convenient access to activities everyone can enjoy. Please note that the Village Rooms at Northstar Resort do not have kitchens.  These are hotel-style rooms that offer great value for those looking for economical accommodations right in the Village.
