Find the Cottage That Fits You and Your Family

To view details about individual cottages please click one of the cottage names on the navigation bar to the left, or visit the Maps page to see where the units are located on the North Star grounds and click the map itself to visit the page for that cottage.

What cottages have in common:

General: Cottages are usually rented by the week starting on Saturdays; check-in is 2pm and check-out 10am the following Saturday. All cottages have hot water and electricity.

Kitchen: All kitchens have a sink, stove and refrigerator; they are fully stocked with cutlery, dishes, pots and pans.

Bedrooms: Most cottages require that renters bring their own bed linen (fitted sheet, top sheet and pillow cases), however pillows, flannels and blankets are provided.

How cottages differ:

Kitchen: While all cottages have a stove, the type of stove varies between gas and electric (and occasionally wood).

Bathroom: Not all cottages have a bathroom, however there are several public flush toilets located around the resort which are kept stocked and clean. For cottages that don't have a bathtub or shower, renters may shower at the Lodge.

Bedrooms: Obviously some cottages have more bedrooms than others. It is also important that you know the size of beds at your cottage so that you can bring the appropriate linen.

Cottaging Rules & Safety Regulations at North Star

There are also several rules and safety regulations that we ask renters to observe to help keep North Star a safe and clean place for all of its inhabitants:

Garbage & Recycling

Please take your garbage & recycling to the top of the road in accordance with the garbage & recycling schedule. The schedules are provided to you either within the cottage or given to you prior to renting. The schedule can also be found here.
