  Lake Tahoe Vacation, Page 1 of 6

  Marriott Grand Residence, Heavenly Village, Heavenly Gondola

In late August 2004 we exchanged our Marriott Desert Springs timeshare for the Marriott Grand Residence in Lake Tahoe, CA. The weather was great, with beautiful sunny days and temperatures around 80 degrees. We had a wonderful week of sightseeing, hiking, biking and kayaking.
Lake Tahoe Marriott Grand Residence Lake Tahoe Heavenly Village
The Marriott Grand Residence, and its sister resort the Marriott Timber Lodge, are the main anchors of the Heavenly Village. The Village is a pedestrian-friendly shopping/dining/entertainment area in the city of South Lake Tahoe. The Heavenly Gondola departs from the plaza between the two Marriott resorts and rises to an altitude of 6500 feet where the Heavenly Ski Resort lifts begin.

Lake Tahoe Heavenly Village Fire & Ice Lake Tahoe Heavenly Village entertainment
The Fire & Ice restaurant was a popular spot. It's one of those places where you choose all your raw foods from a 'buffet,' then take it to the 'grill chef' who cooks it for you.
On the weekends, they have live entertainment in the plaza, such as this small band playing 'classic rock.'
