The Lodge is the central hub at North Star. It acts as the registration office for the resort and is home to the telephone, mail-room, public shower, and a TV for rainy days.

The Beach

The beach is one of the main attractions at North Star. Although the water is generally safe, North Star has no professional lifeguard; children should be supervised at all times by their parents while in the water.

The Badminton Area

The badminton area is available for anyone to use, however you will have to supply your own raquets and birdies.

The Bonfire Site

Toasting marshmallows and hot-dogs is fun but a few rules apply: bonfires may only be lit at the designated bonfire location, and a cottage owner must be present and responsible for the fire. Please see the North Star Rules & Safety Regulations.
