We stayed for 8 nights, and really liked this place. We had a 1-bedroom villa, which for 2 of us was lovely and spacious, with nice modern decor and amenities. We liked having the bedroom separate from the living room, the bed was really comfy (particularly the pillows) and we slept really well. The bathroom was large and had a good walk-in shower, as well as 2 sinks. We were on holiday for 2 weeks in total, so stayed in and cooked a few nights, and found that the well-stocked kitchen had everything we needed (including quite a hi-tech cooker). Good flat-screen TVs and blu-ray players - great for movies on the nights we stayed in (good selection for $5 per night in the lobby). The free wi-fi worked really well too. For a long-ish trip, we also found the washer/dryer in the room really handy (saved us packing space for all the outlet mall shopping we took home!)
When we went out, there was a good selection of restaurants and bars within walking distance. We were there mainly to ski, so it was great to have the gondola right outside, on the days it was running (can bit a bit prone to closure when the wind comes off the lake), and when it wasn't, the shuttle bus stop was only around the corner.
The staff throughout the hotel were really friendly and helpful.
We just had one gripe - the cost of the valet parking! For a hotel of this standard that's not in a city (i.e. parking shouldn't really be at a premium), I'd expect parking for hotel guests to be included in the room rate. $26 per day for 8 nights adds quite a lot to the bill! Even if they offered self-parking at a reduced rate, this would help. This is the only reason I didn't give the Timber Lodge the full 5 stars (would have rated 4.5 if that were possible).
