We arrived at the Lake Tahoe Vacation Resort hours after the fire started. The staff was attentive despite any concerns they may have had for their own homes that might have been at risk of burning.
The fire certainly limited our ability to enjoy Lake Tahoe -- we were not able to take the lift at Heavenly or visit Emerald Bay. The resort had a lovely pool and nice resaturant.
If the fire hadn't limited our activites, I would have been disappointed in the resort's lack of lakefront beach. If you walked off the resort grounds there really wasn't much to see or do.
We had a spacious two bedroom unit -- with a spectacular view of the air conditioning system. Was stunned that the building had not been planned in a way to have maximized the view of the lake -- or at least to conceal the "plumbing"!
Other reviewers warned of the timeshare pitch -- we were offered a free night's stay a couple times if we attended the pitch but declined without any pressure. For the most part, we steered clear of the concierge so we did not have a problem.
