It was a last minute weekend trip. So happy we chose this place. The staff, cleaning service and kids club were great. We will absolutely return and will stay longer. We didn't get to ride on the Gondola because of the high winds,so we will be back.

Terrific resort. Housekeeping did an excellent job of cleaning and restocking the room. The location and area amenities were terrific. Front desk was very friendly and helpful. Ski valet was efficient, courteous, and VERY convenient. But it's the little niceties that really make the difference--like the staff in the lobby and at the concierge desk that always made a point... More

this place is a perfect location right next to the heavenly gondola. Also right next to the village where you can walk to shops and restaurants. Amenities are very nice but not amazing. We opted for a fireplace villa, it was nice-a little dated. Having a kitchen and laundry services in your unit is really handy! bed was comfortable and... More

We have stayed at Timberlodge every year since 2004. We feel like it is our home away from home! We almost always go at the end of November/beginning of December. We request the same room every year and have always gotten it. We enjoy the "off" season - much less crowded. The location is awesome - lots to do within... More

Been coming here for years with our family for a winter get away. It started out great, but we are noticing services and amenities are getting cut back further and further each year. While it's still a great place to stay, it's no longer the luxurious get away it used to be. Come on Marriott step it back up, please.

The Timber Lodge at Lake Tahoe is a clean, beautiful resort in the most prime location at So Lake Tahoe. Stroll through the Village for great restaurants and shopping (also great shopping in the nearby Raley's shopping center). We love coming to the Timber Lodge and Lake Tahoe!
