We stayed at Timber Lodge for a long weekend and generally enjoyed ourselves. We had a one-bedroom suite on the top floor of the Alpine building. The room was slightly oddly shaped based on its location in the building, but was more than adequate. All of the equipment worked and we used several of the kitchen appliances. The room had a gas fireplace which added some nice winter feel.
The Timber Lodge is the larger of the two Marriott time share properties (which are right next to each other, separated by the gondola that goes up the mountain). The property doesn't have a lot of character. Few of the rooms have a lake view. The lake is 4 or 5 blocks away. I suspect that some of the rooms on the back of the Alpine building have good mountain views.
Timber Lodge does have one restaurant on site. We didn't try it, though it seemed to be doing a good business. The property also has a sizable fitness facility and a good range of activities. The handout with activities was thoughtfully divided between family activities and adult activities.
Timber Lodge is in the middle of the strip of businesses, hotels, and restaurants right on the state line, so its easy to walk to the casinos. It's also quite easy to park at the free parking lots at the casinos and avoid the $26 a day valet for the Timber Lodge.
The pools at Timber Lodge are heated through the winter, so visiting the pool with snow on the ground is possible and, arguably, encouraged since they put out pool towels each day on the lounge chairs.
