The cabin was left perfect, and we appreciate great customers/friends like you and your family--Thank you very much for posting a kind comment on our property on VRBO. It means a lot to us.
The perfect rental...
The perfect rental...
Whta a wonderful home! This cabin was absolutely perfect for our stay. The location was awesome. The cabin is very welcoming, and has all the amenities you need. The easy wireless and flat screen TV was an added bonus. Having the separate den for the kids to watch their own shows and play is really great too. Everything about this place is just "easy" and comfortable. Can't wait to go back. Hope to make this a yearly trip! Thank you again for letting us enjoy your beautiful home.

Owner response: Marjie, Thank you very much for your time to give us such a nice review. We are always very happy to have you and your family stay at the cabin. You should come up during Winter this year. The cabin is at about 6,500 ft, the snow should be great this year! At our elevation, we get a lot of snow, but it rarely locks you in. / Regardess, we have some later August and early September Summer dates still available. / I can't wait until off-season, so I can go, too!--Brent

My wife and I have utilized VRBO on many occasions - trips to Dodge Ridge, Santa Cruz, Snowmass (Colorado) and even Barcelona, Spain. The experience of working with Brent and his family on this North Shore Tahoe property was wonderful. The house is well described in the listing. We were pleasantly surprised by several items - the kitchen was well stocked with everything from spices, to wine glasses, to any pan that you might need for cooking; the beds were VERY comfortable; and the location was excellent. We loved being able to walk to the lake, the list of restaurants that Brent and his family recommended, and being able to burn a fire in their woodburning stove (you need to bring your own wood of course). The only downside to writing this review is that it might make it more difficult for us to get access to the property in the future! It is a great location for getting to the North Shore ski resorts. We visited Mt. Rose and Homewood during this trip - both are about twenty minutes away by car.

This was the first time I had used vrbo for a vacation rental and now this is the only site I'll use to book a vacation!! This listing couldn't have been more accurate. The Courier Family were so very accomodating and their home was more than had been described. The amenities were amazing!! Stocked kitchen, comfy beds, great pillows. This was a girls weekend to celebrate my 50th and we were all amazed at the comfort and cleanliness, as well as the great location to the beautiful lake and shopping. Thank you for the bottle of Champagne..It started our day out Great with a Mimosa. This was a great, last minute way to celebrate my 50th! Thanks for getting back to me so quickly. We will be back. Thank you, Lisa

Owner response: Thank you, Lisa and Company! It's really challenging for me to find the "right" place, whenever I travel, and I want it to be in the right location, and I hope it's very clean, modern, and "as advertised." I'm very pleased that we helped perpetuate that great experience for you! Thank you for your time, and review. I appreciate it very much.--Brent
We lived in Tahoe for 10 years, and moved away. We have stayed in numerous hotels, houses and condos. The Courier Cabin is BY FAR the cleanest and most wonderful place we have stayed. We were soooo impressed. Just a walk away from Buck's Beach (one of the most magnificent views around),casinos, hiking and restaurants. The house has EVERYTHING you could need. Wonderful linens, stocked kitchen,grill,washer/dryer and cable tv too! Best of all the owners are great people with the best deals around!It was a worry free trip! We can't wait to make it our yearly vacation! Thanks!

About the owner: This is a picture of my partners, Mom, Dad: who are responsible for our good fortune. My father is a sometimes retired Director of Public Safety (and an amazing handyman), Mom is a retired Bank Account Manager and a never retired Mom, and I'm a retired U.S. Naval Officer (USNR), and current pilot with American Airlines (767/757 LAX Int'l.) Dad, Mom, Uncle Ken&Aunt Elaine, and Wil&Sally Johnson (along with us 'littler ones' doing lots of digging duty,etc.---'I've got story...') built two properties on 3-lots around 30-years ago. The first property was bought out by our very good friends (family to us)/partners/neighbors, and we kept the newer property 1-door down. We were able to build the 'newer' property from scratch because we won a Tahoe sewer lottery 28-some years ago. When my Uncle, who was also a partner, fell ill, I bought his half to help him out, and have been working hard ever since to try to offer a quality product at the best rates in Tahoe. I also wanted my Mom and Dad to enjoy the fruits of their labor, and finally be able to enjoy their cabin. They, and we, enjoy it immensely, and hope you do too! We put our love into it every time we get the opportunity to visit.
Why the Owner Chose Brockway:
I travel around the world often, as many of us do these days, but nowhere gives me greater peace and satisfaction than going to the cabin in North Tahoe. Growing up, and driving up from Petaluma, I remember being ino the back of our 1966 Ford pickup truck with 3-on-the-wheel, riding with the wheel barrows, shovels, cement bags, tool kits, lumber, gravel, foxhole shovels, saws, etc. many, many times. 'All I got for all those years of work was a few quarters to go throw in the arcade at Cal-Neva. . . .' Just kidding. There is nothing like sweat equity. Our location in Tahoe is really special. It's far enough away from neighbors to make it feel secluded, but close enough to shopping, casinos, restaurants and the most beautiful beach in Tahoe to make it convenient to those wonderful sundries in life. I go there to study when necessary, and will hopefully will write a book someday at the cabin. It is a special place, full of great memories and hard, dedicated work along with many fun times had by all family members. Take a jump off the the back of the rock formation at our Buck's Beach, and really feel alive! It's the essence of Tahoe, the fresh mountain air, clear water, hiking, skiing, diving, and sense of outdoor adventure combined with peace, tranquility and appreciation for the treasure that is in our midst that makes it the consummate retreat on this planet. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
