Review of Timber Lodge at Lake Tahoe: a Marriott Vacation Club destination resort. Our first vacation club visit that is not at the beach. There are beaches at Lake Tahoe but the water is rather cold. Do not be sad, though, this pool pictured here at the Lodge is always 83 degrees no matter the season.
Emerald Bay State Park, South Lake Tahoe, CA. Take a boat out and camp on the only island in Lake Tahoe. In 1969, Emerald Bay was designated a National Natural Landmark for its brilliant panorama of mountain-building processes and glacier carved granite. The park features Vikingsholm, one of the finest examples of Scandinavian architecture in the western hemisphere and the "Tea House" on Fannette Island, the only island to be found in all of Lake Tahoe.
