Review: Marriott Timber Lodge Lake Tahoe

The Marriott Timber Lodge, set in stunning in South Lake Tahoe, has a great location with easy access to Heavenly Ski Resort and is within walking distance to the lake and casino nightlife.  Adjacent to the gondola at the Heavenly Ski Resort, you'll have access to all of the dining, shopping, and entertainment options of South Lake Tahoe’s Heavenly Village that surround Timber Lodge, which sits directly on the main thoroughfare of Lake Tahoe Boulevard.

What You Need to Know:
The Marriott Timber Lodge is a Marriott Vacation Club timeshare property that is great for families and couples that looking for a great place to stay during ski season or the warm summer season.

Set within Heavenly Village, Marriott's Timber Lodge offers easy access to the Heavenly Gondola and nearby beaches, casinos and golf courses in South Lake Tahoe.

The incredibly convenient location is close to shops, restaurants, a grocery store, coffee shops, and much more.

There is also Marriott Grand Residence Vacation Club next door to Marriott Timber Lodge that is a little but more upscale and works differently than the traditional weekly timeshare, as the Grand Residence is more of a whole ownership/quarter ownership.

The Marriott Timber Lodge offers spacious guest rooms featuring lodge-inspired decor with dark wooden furniture.

For our summer stay here, we were in a guestroom featuring one king bed, a sofa bed and a small kitchenette that offered ample space for all of us.

There are also one-, two- and three-bedroom villas with full kitchens at the property.  The condo-style villas boast cozy fireplaces, a master suite, over-sized soaking tub, as well as washers and dryers.

On-Site Amenities:
The Marriott's Timber Lodge is a very family-friendly resort, offering great amenities that includes:
  • The Cubhouse for young guests, with games and activities, including movie nights.  There is also The Den, which is a teen lounge area with gaming systems.
  • Heated pool and whirlpool spas, a fitness center, and separate children's pool.

  • On-site restaurant featuring Asian cuisine called  Fire + Ice Grill & Bar
  • Heavenly Village next door that features shops, restaurants, entertainment and more!

  • Heavenly Gondola for a day of skiing or Summer fun at Epic Discovery

Overall Impression:
If you're planning a trip to Lake Tahoe, you can't beat the location of the Marriott Timber Lodge (and Marriott Grand Residence) located right at the base of Heavenly Gondola in the center of town close to dining, shopping, entertainment and the lake!
