About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Romantic, knotty pine cabin with panoramic view of the lake in the historic Tahoe neighborhood of Brockway. Ancient granite boulders and stately incense cedars frame the view overlooking Lake Tahoe from the hot tub on our large deck, equipped with barbecue and picnic table. In winter, gaze at snow falling on the lake while enjoying a home-cooked meal in front of the mellow brick fireplace or sipping a glass of wine in the deck hot tub. New flatscreen Direct TV, HD, with 240 channels and all sports events. In summer, grill out and watch the boats on the lake or the chipmunks scurrying around the boulders, or just savor the beautiful sunsets.

The cabin was built in 1940's and features lovingly crafted knotty pine paneling and very cozy old brick fireplace (owners were the Bruener Furniture family)but of course we have updated, adding new windows,appliances,etc., while still trying to preserve the family-friendly amenities and craftmanship of that earlier era.

The close view of Lake Tahoe and the quiet thrill of seeing the lake over a panorama of incredible glacier-age boulders and beautiful conifers that were seedlings when our great- grandparents were born is an experience that many of us who live here will never take for granted and love to share with guests to the cabin

North Shore ski resorts are 12 to 30 minutes away and the lake is a two-minute walk down the hill. Kings Beach is a 5-min. drive away and Crystal Bay Nevada casinos are in easy walking distance.

Perfect cozy cabin with breath taking views of the lake and mountains.

  • 5 of 5

Cabin is simple, but fully stocked with everything you need to during your stay. Fireplace works great and there was plenty of wood during our trip. Owners are very friendly and offer any help they can as for places to eat and visit. We're already planning our next trip this March with the same cabin.

Relaxing NYE

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was perfect for our stay over the New Year holiday. The location was perfect and the casinos were a short walk away. The cabin was very cozy and the view of lake Tahoe from the back deck took our breath away every day we were there. It was so relaxing to soak in the hot tub during the full moon and look out over the lake before turning in for the night. The fireplace kept us warm during the cold evenings. Janet was an excellent host who was very responsive and made sure the cabin was stocked with all the provisions we needed to have an excellent weekend. We would not hesitate to stay here the next time we are in Lake Tahoe.

Snug and Quiet Northshore Nest

  • 5 of 5

We came to kayak and paddle but a snowy last day of summer (!) inspired a change in plans. Jan and Jim were friendly, helpful and attentive hosts and were kind enough to let us stow our kayak and paddle board for the duration of our stay. They provided plentiful firewood, and we made the most of our comfortable little hide-away. The well-equipped kitchen (cookie sheet!), fireplace, scrabble board and playing cards, big comfy couch, washer and dryer, and hot tub with a view were much appreciated. The decor is a bit shabby and cobbled together, just like a family cabin ought to be. We did only find one clothes hanger in the place and the furnace made a strange ghostly noise, but we thought of those things as adding character. I'm also pretty sure that if we had mentioned them at the time, Jan would have given us her own hangers and exorcised the furnace. We didn't bother to say anything We read our books baked our cookies and slept like babies. This is a great place to return to after a day out exploring this beautiful area. It is conveniently located on a beautiful property, is safe, quiet, comfortable, full of character, and has a lake view. We hope to return and maybe even get out on the water next time!

Great place for kids!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and one year old daughter stayed here for a weeks long family vacation. The owner, Jan, was extremely nice and accommodating. This cabin has the best beach for kids right down the street. It is just a short 400m walk. My husband and I lugged our 20 something pound daughter and all of our beach stuff down to Speedboat Beach almost every day we were there. It was no problem at all. This in itself is worth the modest price of this cabin. This beach was so clear and calm; perfect for any age children!

The cabin is old and rustic but clean and charming. It has everything we could expect from a private rental. Our daughter slept great in the cabin which is always a worry when we travel.

We did experience a bit of allergies. I'm not sure if it was all the pollen in the air or the few wool items in the house but nothing Claritin couldn't solve.

Also, their is no AC but Jan will gladly accommodate with fans. We, however, found that it cooled off at night enough (even on 90 degree days) to simply sleep with the windows open.

The only thing that may have been nice is a washer. Their is a dryer to help dry towels and such but with a baby we tend to do a load (or two!) when on vacation.

We cooked several meals at this place... All on the BBQ. We also used the hot tub while soaking in the gorgeous view of the lake!

Overall, this was a fantastic rental and I recommend it to anyone looking to stay in the Kings Beach, Tahoe area.

About janet steinmann

I'm a retired high school English teacher and my husband Jim is a still working and traveling consultant. We bought this cabin plus another permanent rental as a vacation home and moved into it full time in 1991. Then we added a larger house and garage/greenhouse/workshop to the 1 acre, lakeview property. Realizing that we seldom used the cabin except for guests, we closed it off and made it private, then began renting it as a vacation place.

janet steinmann purchased this cabin in 1989

Why janet steinmann chose Brockway

North Shore Lake Tahoe is beautiful no matter what the season. We enjoyed the granite boulders, pines, and especially the lakeview in this small Brockway neighborhood. We are close to skiing and can walk to the beach, as seen in our picture.

What makes this cabin unique

Life on the deck overlooking the lake is lovely with the hot tub and sunsets in winter, sunny days and barbecuing in summer. Inside, it's fun to sit in front of the fireplace, watch Direct TV, or whip up a meal.
