I'm going to start by saying that the location was perfect,but besides that the chalet was outdated, there were spiders,the pans need to be replaced they were old and out lived their useble years. The plugs in kitchen area didnt work so we had to get an extension to plug the fridge and be able to use it. And we weren't told we were not be able to use the loft.
“Great view, but critters in the walls mar stay!”
Great view! Rodents in walls made a scratching sound especially at night that was disconcerting.
“Average Tahoe home with a great view from the rear deck.”
The people at the rental office were very friendly and very helpful. Unfortunately the girls in the office have not seen most of the rental properties so they could not give their first hand experience.
I should not have paid the same amount for this house as my other family members paid for their much nicer houses. I felt like I was in a ski cabin for college kids. Cut marks on the kitchen counters showed that it was abused. The wood trim everywhere in the house was all banged up. The lighting was poor throughout the house. The refrigerator made a bunch of noise. My guests felt that the deck was unstable and could collapse. The unit was very beat up and badly needs upgrades.

The keys were not available in the lock box on Sunday. The coax cable between the wall and TV was missing so no TV, personally bought cable. The waste basket in kitchen was a bathroom size waste basket, personally bought a normal 13 gallon waste basket. The coffee filters in coffee maker were too small. Extremely happy that wireless Internet was installed along with DVR for TV. Will definitely plan to rent house for Thanksgiving 2012.
Response from the manager Our office was closed on the Sunday of this arrival. When I recevied the call from the answering service about 2pm, I was here in about 15 minutes to deliver the keys and get everyone checked in. Yes, August 2012 and again our special annual returning guests have booked Thanksgiving 2012 !
“Fleas and Cold”
It would have been great except the house heating system was deficient and worst of all there were so many fleas I was bitten to death. Both my legs will be scarred.
“1228 Timber Lane - 2010 Thanksgiving vacation”
The empty refrigerator did not smell fresh when we arrived. After cleaning it with baking powder it was better, but still had a lingering spoiled food smell. I installed a weather strip on the inside of the front door to reduce the cold air coming under the door. The weather strip reduced the draft of cold air by over 50%. The house held up well during the two snow storms that dropped over 3 feet of snow. The local Tahoe Tyrol plow service for the driveway was timely after the first snow fall. The city plow that does Timber Lane comes as much as 12 hours after the snow stops falling. So your car needs chains or 4WD with M+S tires to get up the hill on Timber Lane during and up to 12 hours after a snow storm. The house still needs a wireless Internet connection. We had up to 4 laptop computers and a Wii that would have used it. The view of Lake Tahoe is still breathtaking and we will likely rent this house again for next Thanksgiving holiday week.
“New Year on Timber Lane”
Brilliant position with outstanding views and super close to the California lodge. But decor is mid 70's as is the TV and audio. Lack of internet is unforgiveable in 2010. Some investment by the owner would bring a better rating.
“Thanksgiving 2009 at 1228 Timber Lane Tahoe Tyrol”
The only drawback to the property is the lack of Internet access. Either the Tahoe Tyrol property owners should set up a WiFi service for the neighborhood. Or the owner should set up a wireless connection in the home itself. There is cell phone access so it is possible with the correct electronics to access the Internet via a cell phone connection, but it's slow and each computer has to have the cell phone connection electronics. On the plus side we appreciated the new dishwasher this year and took full advantage of the relatively new oven and stove top. And I believe there was a new toaster oven. All and all the house is well furnished and has a beautiful view of Lake Tahoe.
“1228 Timber Lane, Tahoe Tyrol house rental”
Once again, after many years (over 10) in the past, we were very pleased with our week long house rental. The new outdoor grill was great. We used it once to cook steaks with great results and we left it (with slightly less propane) the way we found it. The oven and microwave were also great since we used them a lot preparing our Thanksgiving dinner, cookies and desserts. Here are some inputs to make this the house we want to rent again, next year: Wireless Internet access: This has become very important to us. I am not sure we will rent this house next year without this. It seems to me that the Tahoe Tyrol homeowners association should have this as a feature in the neighborhood to raise the value of all of the rental properties. A centralized wireless access port for the neighborhood is not very expensive. Or the homeowner could offer a wireless capability that was accessed via the cable connection in the house. We would pay something extra for this feature as part of the house rental. Minor repairs: The light switch on the bedroom ground floor that turns on the “down” hallway light needs to be replaced. There are also some potential electrical problem that may be something outside the home (like a really big power tool being turned on and off in the neighborhood).
