Our beautiful Timber Ridge condo is 1,970 square feet of luxurious living space. It is located within 5 minute walking distance to the lifts and is situated about half way between Timber Creek and the Main Lodge. Furnishings are complete to make your stay very comfortable and enjoyable. This place is not tacky with a mismatched furnishings and decorations, nor will you get the feeling furnishings are meant to pack as many people into a small space as possible. You will feel a sense of warmth and comfort here. We have put our heart and soul into the furnishings and decorating, and enjoy it more than our own home! We feel you will enjoy it as well.

The huge kitchen is the most amazing feature, with granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances, gas stove, coffee maker, toaster oven and utensils to feed a group of 12. The large dining room table is made of solid Douglas fir and has leaves to extend the table to seat 14. Granite kitchen counter top sits an additional 4 at the bar.

'Energy Star' Washer and dryer are in the unit as well.

The kids bedroom has a twin bunk bed as well as a trunk of toys to entertain your little ones.

There is a large flat screen TV with Blue-Ray DVD player and cable TV.

This very family friendly unit is currently available to reserve now.

About The Owner

We are husband, wife and 2 boys. Bob is a Structural Engineer and Patty is a Physician Assistant. Cooper is 9 and is in 4th grade and Samuel is 1 and is a terror! We hope you enjoy your stay as much as we love being up at Kirkwood.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2009

Why The Owner chose Gold Country / High Sierra

We love Kirkwood because there isn't a lot of 'fuss'. The mountain speaks for itself, you don't need also the fancy stuff to entice you to come.

What makes this condo unique

Kirkwood has some of the best skiing in the Sierra's. The resort boasts the highest base elevation at 7800 feet, and challenging terrain, which ensures the best likelihood of snow in warmer storms. Kirkwood is also a great place for families, and is less geared towards partiers.

Wonderful time for a family with diverse winter interests

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely condo. The photos in the description accurately reflect the spaces, and, if anything, some of our group thought everything was better than the photos! Everything was clean. The kitchen is great for cooking and living room great for gathering for a movie, playing cards on the trestle table, and enjoying the coziness of the fire place. The owner was very helpful and responsive before and during our stay. All questions and concerns were quickly attended to and resolved.

Our family enjoyed snowboarding and downhill skiing - so fun that they could end the day coming right to the hill above the condo. Though its not the biggest mountain in California, Kirkwood has plenty of challenging terrain. Others enjoyed showshoeing, cross-country skiing, and sledding. And all of us took at least one day to enjoy watching the Rose Bowl (go Stanford!) and hanging out together in the beautiful living room. There were quite a few New Year's Eve activities that were available here at Kirkwood too. We brought up most of our food for the week, but were happy to just walk to the general store and find milk, eggs, etc. as needed. In fact, our car stayed in the garage for all five days we were here.

Except for at the Kirkwood cross-country ski place on highway 80 and the downhill rental place, the staff we ran into at Kirkwood were very helpful and friendly. Two guys even offered to take our trash to the dumpster when they saw me walking with it! (The people at the rental places weren't bad, just a bit clueless.)

I plan to recommend this place to anyone I know. We lived and worked at Fallen Leaf Lake, near South Lake Tahoe for 10 years before moving to the Bay Area, and we had always loved coming over to this area on highway 88. Kirkwood has all the amenities of some of the bigger ski resorts, but still has the charm of a small, more secluded and relaxed community.

Thanks to Patty for making this place available and I hope we can return again next year.

Fun in Kirkwood

  • 5 of 5

(Stayed in late July/early August 2012) For years, our family has spent one summer week a year in Kirkwood. We go to Kirkwood to hike, play frisbee golf, and to enjoy the rec center and it's pool. We enjoy Kirkwood in the summer as it is empty, very quiet, and probably the most beautiful of the Sierra resorts . Essentially, Kirkwood is our perfect place to recharge after a trip to Disneyland or Las Vegas. In Kirkwood, we have rented homes, condos, and from Kirkwood Accomodations which is the resort's lodging. We decided to try a condo at Timber Ridge and we are happy we did so. This condo has a more modern feel over what you get thru Kirkwood Accomodations condo rentals and has a private garage that can fit two cars. In our case, we were able to fit our car and all the bikes we had brought up with us with plenty of room to spare. It was nice being able to just hop on and off our bikes from the garage entrance. The bike ride to the pool and/or frisbee golf course takes only a matter of minutes. The owners are also very easy to reach and provide clear instructions on how to enter the property. We had to reach the owner once while we were at the property and we were able to reach them on our first try. It was reassuring that the owner's were available and it is clear they care about guests and the property. The damage deposit was refunded in a timely matter as well. The unit itself is spacious and the family room has a nice flat screen TV on the wall. Everything from the kitchen to bathrooms are modern which is what you would expect from a luxury condo in Kirkwood. The place is perfect for three couples (each would have own bathroom) or for two families with multiple kids. Lastly, the condo appears to be safe. The unit is two levels and all the windows are well above ground level. Lastly, you do get full access to the rec center. No additonal fees. The rec center has treadmills, other work out equipment, a ping pong table, and a heated pool/jacuzzi with a awesome 360 degree mountain view. We hope to come back to this property many times in the future. Kudos to the owners for allowing guests to rent this great property.....

Spring ski trip, April 10-15, 2011

  • 5 of 5

Easy walk & ski to Cornice & Solitude chairs.

Fabulous spring rate at this property (as well as a great price on the Kirkwood spring pass,

though the backside of the mountain is closed).

From the eye-popping kitchen, which is still fun for serious daily cooking, on through the great room,

bedrooms & bathrooms, it's all very luxe! Extra nice furnishings and finishes. Use of the private garage (double car length) allows storage of all wet gear - no damp carpets! Owner is a pleasure to deal with.

We were six people, so this was very spacious for us.

Great Kitchen, Great Condo, Easy Communications

  • 5 of 5

Kirkwood has such good snow, sometimes you can actually get snowed in for a day or two. Happened to us, but thankfully we were at this beautiful, well laid out condo. It is tastefully decorated, and those of us who like to cook and eat loved the kitchen and the eating area. Furnishings are higher end; very comfortable beds. Everything worked as expected. As importantly, owners are easy to communicate with and rental transaction was easy, fair, and smooth. Gonna rush to re-book for next year before this review generates too much business...

Perfect All Around

  • 5 of 5

A perfect condo for multiple families and couples. The condo is

extremely beautiful, spacious and offers privacy for many people. Bedrooms

are comfy, cozy, and inviting....each with private baths! Fantastic kitchen filled with

modern appliances and all the cooking utensils that you need...even a coffee grinder for

those of us who want the perfect cup each morning.

The condo is very well kept with modern decor and new everything, so

it really feels like a luxury home getaway. The location is perfect. A 5 min walk to

the slopes and that's it. Perfect if you've got little ones and need to get

back in a flash, or just want to get back with ease.

Last, but not least, the owners are kind and inviting, which

made for easy booking and coordination of our weekend spent

in Kirkwood.
