About the property

Condo - 2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths (Sleeps 4-6) & Wi-Fi

This beautifully remodeled end unit floor, 2-bedroom condominium is located on the ski trail at Northstar. You may don your skis or snowboard right downstairs in the snow and swoosh your way down to the ticket line (no need to drive to the ski resort or lug your equipment anywhere). The Home Run transport lift, which takes you to the base of the mountain, runs just outside the condo and can be boarded just a short way down the hill. Northstar is about a 5 minute drive to the historic town of Truckee with all its quaint shops and restaurant. Lake Tahoe is a 10-15 minutes drive and Reno is about 40 minutes away.

UNIT - - The private master bedroom has a king size bed with a luxurious mattress and quality bedding with the 4-piece main bathroom just steps away. The loft second bedroom has two queen sized beds as well as its own 2-piece half bath. The recently remodeled kitchen is open to the main living space and features a granite breakfast bar, energy efficient appliances (stove top oven, refrigerator,microwave and dishwasher) and all the cooking utensils most chefs could want. The large slate-tiled gas fireplace heats the room and houses a flat screen TV - which has hundreds of channels, including many premium ones. Complimentary washer and dryer are located just outside the front door.

NORTHSTAR VILLAGE AMENITIES - - The Northstar Village is less than a half mile walk away or can be reached via the complimentary free shuttle where you will enjoy popular restaurants (Rubicon Pizza and Mikuni's Japanese Restaurant), cafes (Starbucks), boutiques, the spa, a lawn for frisbee, the APEX Bungee and Rope Challenge, and swimming, tennis and the Fitness Center at the NPOA Recreation Center. Restaurants and other shops surround the free central skating ring.

HIKING - - Hiking enthusiasts can track up the mountain via the 2-mile Martis Trail that begins just behind the NPOA Recreation Center. Alternatively, you can hike down the mountain after taking the life up.

BIKING - - With over 100 miles of trails ranging from novice to professional, Northstar features one of the best mountain biking parks in California. During the summer season, the transport lifts operate full time. The Village has a full-service bike shop where you can rent bikes or repair your flat tire.

TENNIS - - Nestled in the heart of the mountains, the NPOA Tennis Center offers 10 cushioned hard courts in a serene forest setting. Guests are welcome to brush up on their skills, take classes and clinics, compete in tournaments or just play for fun.

GOLF - - Golfing enthusiasts will enjoy Northstar’s 18-hole championship golf course that features a links-style front nine and mountain-style back nine. Their open deck cafe overlooking The Martis Valley Creek serves great burgers and salads.

About Ramine Killen

We have been skiing at Northstar since 1970 and I was thrilled with our decision to purchase a property on the ski trail in 1978.

Ramine Killen purchased this condo in 1978

Why Ramine Killen chose Truckee

The perfect location - right on the ski trail and close to the Village/NPOA Recreation Center - and completely remodeled and appointed residence with every amenity possible to make your stay comfortable and pleasant. It has been an excellent place for my family to share holidays and other specials times together and will surely do the same for friends and family anywhere.

What makes this condo unique

What first attracted us to this condominium was its proximity to the ski trail which means you never again have to drive to a ski resort or lug ski equipment across a parking lot and up the hill. The privacy (top floor end unit of end building at the top of the ski trail) and serene beauty of this cozy space is what made us want to make it mine forever.

Best time ever!

  • 5 of 5

This was the best of 4 places we have stayed at for a long weekend along the ski trail in the past 2 winter seasons Not too fancy, just well supplied and kept up. It was plenty comfortable for 4 adults and 2 teens.

This condo was just as described! Wonderful homey condo with all of the amenities we needed. The on site contacts were also super friendly and were avaible when we needed help! Ramine was extremely quick to respond to our messages and was more than accommodating. Would definitely stay again. Thank you for your hospitality!

Feel free to take a vacation from your car for your entire stay as well (park in the adjacent parking lot with the placard on your dashboard). The complimentary Northstar shuttle will transport you to the Village to dine at any of the great restaurants (pizza, sushi, tapas, fine dining California cuisine), visit the many boutiques, or indulge in a massage at the spa. The shuttle will also take you to the 18-hole golf course as well as the NPOA Recreation Center which features: two pools (large family pool or adult lap pool); three jacuzzis (family, twirl, and adult); 10 tennis courts; a baby pool, splash pad and jungle gym; fitness center complete with cardio machines (elliptical, treadmill, rower, stationary bike), state-of-the-art weight machines, and free weights; saunas in both restrooms; library and reading room; and deli. The shuttle runs on schedule for much of the year and may be called at other times. If you wish to venture outside Northstar, be sure to visit the excellent restaurants (Moody’s, Squeeze In), quaint shops, and breweries in the town of Truckee (just 7 miles away on highway 267) as well as all the activities Lake Tahoe has to offer (15 minutes in the opposite direction).
