The snow was not this great this winter, however the resort is wonderful. We rented a 4-bedroom apartment at the Great Bear Lodge and we had a great time. All rooms overlook the ice-skating rink. It is a short easy walk (3 - 5 min) to the Gondola. Even my 7 year old can carry the ski and walk to...

Hi Candice- Thanks for submitting a review about Great Bear & we're so pleased you had a nice stay in the residence. Yes, mother nature has not given us optimal conditions this year, but it sounds like you enjoyed dining, shops and family fun in the Village. Please join us again; summer is spectacular in Tahoe!

I normally don't write a review if the existing reviews accurately depict the establishment. However, in this case, while all of the reviews are EXCELLENT for this property, Great Bear Lodge was listed as number six out of ten so I thought I would chime in. GBL truly is excellent in every way. The unit we had was flawless, the...

We stayed in a 3 bedroom Great Bear condo. All I can say is "Swanky!" There is a secure building and the elevator from the lobby opens right into the rooms. Each room had a bathroom and we had an enormous living room, kitchen and balcony area. I loved the fireplace, it was a great place to dry my boots...

I've scheduled company trips to Northstar for the last 4 years. The first year we rented a house and had fun. The next two years we stayed at Iron Horse at Northstar resort and it was incredible. This year we decided to try Great Bear at Northstar and we will definitely be back next year. Iron Horse is now our...

One of the best resort accommodations I have ever stayed in. Very posh and amazingly super clean. Better than expected. Linens and beds were great as was furniture. Would definitely stay again. Security was not a problem at all, elevators are very safe.

We stayed in a four bedroom and four and a half bath unit in Great Bear Lodge. Check in was easy and friendly. We had three cars in our group and they provided us with free parking inside a secure garage requiring key card to enter. From the garage you enter the "private elevator" which opens right into your unit....
