Welcome to the best kept secret at Lake Tahoe: the historic and private gated community of Glenbrook, Nevada, on the unspoiled Eastern Shore.
Our sunny and comfortable 1800 sq foot townhouse is nestled at the top of a large alpine meadow with sweeping lake views from the large deck, dining room, living room and 2 of 3 bedrooms. It is quiet and bright, perfect for getting away from it all and enjoying Lake Tahoe. The living room has a wood burning fireplace, gaming table and stylish retro furniture, very sunny. The dining room can accommodate 8 – 12 for dinner, and weather permitting, the spacious deck and BBQ are perfect for cocktails and dining outdoors. The kitchen is fully equipped and roomy. The master bedroom has a king bed, private balcony with views of Lake Tahoe, extra -large closet, and private bathroom. The two additional bedrooms have 2 twin beds each and a shared bathroom, with tub and shower, plus spacious closets. All beds have cozy comforters and extra pillows.
For the fall season, this scenic, safe and serene area has a beautiful mile long private beach, a 9 hole private golf course, private restaurant, meadows full of wild flowers and direct access to wonderful hiking trails. The calm bay of Glenbrook and beautiful sandy private beach is perfect for swimming, sunbathing and boating. The mile-long beach is never crowded. Our deck has beautiful views of the Lake. There are many boat and jet ski rentals available at Zephyr Cove just 10 minutes away. And remember, the fall months offer some of the best weather and boating at the Lake, and beautiful foliage as the trees change colors.
Glenbrook is also perfect for family reunions at Thanksgiving and Christmas, and for the ski season! The Sierra mountain ski resorts are nearby, and our lovely vacation spot is the ideal location for access to all of Lake Tahoe's premiere resorts, including Squaw Valley, Northstar, Heavenly Valley, Alpine Meadows and Kirkwood. The best sledding hill in Glenbrook is right at the end of our road! And after a busy day in the snow, you can enjoy the snow covered meadow, views of the Lake and our wood burning fireplace. Or be tempted by the shopping and nightlife of South Lake Tahoe. Our children learned to ski at Lake Tahoe, and we all enjoy the beautiful winter landscape and many ski resorts.
The rental includes a guest membership at the historic Glenbrook Golf Club, use of the 9 hole golf course in Glenbrook, open during summer and fall. You also have use of the snack bar and fine dining restaurant for lunch and dinner, in the summer months. Tennis courts are also available seasonally for use for a rental fee.
For entertainment, fine dining, shopping or gambling, you can visit South Lake Tahoe which is only 20 minutes away. A 24 hour Safeway supermarket is just 15 minutes from our place. The Reno airport is a 45-60 minute drive, Sacramento is under 2 hours and the Bay Area is 4 hours by car.
Glenbrook is the oldest settlement on Lake Tahoe, and is a former vacation spot of Mark Twain. Glenbrook is comprised of 750 acres with only 150 acres developed. Once you drive through the front gate off Highway 50, you’ve entered one of the most prestigious and pristine locations on the shore of Lake Tahoe. Glenbrook is truly the ideal location for Lake Tahoe swimming, boating, walking, hiking, biking and getting around by golf cart, as there is minimal traffic and many paths. The Tahoe Rim Trail and many National Forest Service trails are accessible, some on foot right from our front door.
We have enjoyed many years of family weekends and vacations, and have shared our place with friends and family. It is ideal for children of any age. Previous renters have come to Glenbrook for family reunions and weddings as well.
