1/5 Terrible

Village stay was pretty bad
We came here during Thanksgiving and were ensured that the property + room were top notch. We came to our room and the room was so musty and the heather so loud that we had to call at 1:30 to change rooms. We were moved to a better room but definitely wasted one day pf our vacation due to a sleepless night and an old noisy heather.

1/5 Terrible

Awful, No Power and Severe Lack of Communication
The power went out a couple hours after we checked in, but we had gone to buy groceries and didn't know. We returned to no power and no communication and no one to contact to find out what was going on. My husband uses a C-Pap machine to sleep, so he couldn't sleep all night, and my 6 year old kept waking up every 45 minutes or so because he was scared. We had no way of communicating with anyone at Northstar and no way to even look up the power outage online because there was no WiFi. In the morning, we went out for coffee and breakfast with still no communication from Northstar about what was going on and when power would be restored. We went to the beach and then got a call at 10am saying that we had been assigned to a new unit, but would still have access to the old unit to move our belongings. We went back to the old unit, but the code didn't work and no one answered at the office. We went to the new unit, but the layout did not work for our family, the master bedroom was way on top of the three stories, and the kids bedrooms were at the basement level. We called the office again, and got no answer. We had to go back to the office where we were told that power was restored, and they were able to reset the code so we could get back into our original unit. At that point, it was 2 o'clock, and we were able to finally go and enjoy the lake. We were only there for two nights, and dealing with these shenanigans that were mostly caused by a lack of communication from Northstar took away our ability to enjoy our one full day at the lake. Not to mention that we couldn't sleep at all the first night and all of the food we bought was spoiled. We were told we could receive a refund but the desk clerk needed to email her manager for approval, but we still haven't received any communication around that either.
