Made our reservation after learning about Lakeland Village on VRBO.com. Mike, the reservations guy, was very helpful and made making the reservation almost fun.
We took a room in the lodge. Everyone at the front desk was friendly and helpful, as were the housekeeping staff. There were loaner books and DVDs in the lobby.
The room was, well...roomy. The king bed was clean and comfortable. The kitchen area had what appeared to be all new appliances, with granite counter tops on the cabinets and the bar. There was a LG LED television (about a 36") at the end of the bed. A gas fireplace supplied the proper ambiance for a mountain getaway. There was plenty of drawer space in the night stands, the chest-of-drawers and built-ins next to the closet.
Outside the sliding patio doors was a small balcony from which you could see the lake through the trees. The grounds were pretty and well-kept.
We didn't take time to use the pool or the spa, but they appeared clean and well cared for.
I would have given Lakeland Village 5-stars if there had been a restaurant on-property.
I would highly recommend Lakeland Village to anyone traveling to South Lake Tahoe.
The room was neat and clean. The shower was hot and had plenty of hot water and a good shower head.
