                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2007

                      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.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      New Wide Screen LCD HD TV, Blue Ray Disc Player, New top-end stove installed in 2011, New canned dimmable lighting installed in living room 2010. New HD Flat Screen TV in Master Bedroom 2012. Clean, comfortable. cared for--very often. Partners visit property at least 8-times/yr.
