About the property

Sunny Townhome, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5+ Baths, Sleeps 6, in Exclusive Gated Community

Welcome to the best kept secret at Lake Tahoe: the historic and private gated community of Glenbrook, Nevada, on the unspoiled Eastern Shore.

A great ski season is in the forecast! The Sierra mountain ski resorts are nearby, and our lovely vacation spot is the perfect 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.

Glenbrook is ideal for 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.

Our light 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 sunny, 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 in warm months, 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 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.

For the spring, summer and fall, 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 beach is never crowded, and is just a 1 minute drive, 5 minute bike ride, or 10 minute walk from our front door. 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.

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.

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.

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.

The place is terrible

  • 1 of 5

This was a really disappointing visit.

Owner's Response: This traveler never arrived. He was a no-show, and has never stayed in our home. We are sorry for that, and appreciate his disappointment from missing his vacation. However, to write "The place is terrible" and "This was a really disappointing visit," having never stayed there or even seen it, is very unjustified, and misleading. Please read our 6 years of glowing reviews, since 2012.

The best thing about this condo is the view across the meadow to Lake Tahoe. We were tempted to sit the whole week and look at the view, but we didn't. We took quite a few hikes, including around Spooner Lake (saw a white pelican and osprey), up the Flume Trail to Marlette Lake, and to the top of Shakespeare Rock. The lady bugs were gathering on the beach a couple of the days we were there. Wonderful!

Review of rental experience on above identified property.

  • 5 of 5

Our two week experience at this rental was excellent. The location was very quiet and peaceful with a nice view of a long meadow, with beautiful wild flowers and trees. Lake Tahoe is seen beyond this foreground. The property as shown and listed by VRBO was accurate. The house was very comfortable - not lavish or overdone. The owner was helpful in answering our questions in advance of renting the property. We returned from the property over three weeks ago and have yet to receive our $500 damage deposit.

Home away from home - coziness!! We have stayed here in both summer and winter and this little gem is perfect for our family of four. So cozy, peaceful and clean with a gorgeous view of the meadow and lake. The kitchen is well appointed with everything you could need. The beds are ALL cozy with very comfortable pillows and comforters (not something you can say about all rentals…). The fireplace is gorgeous and tons of wood is provided. I literally can't think of anything they missed. I just wish we could there every weekend!!! Glenbrook is the BEST place in Tahoe!!!!
