We rented a 3 BR unit at Brockway Springs July 2012. We wanted to take the kids and grandparents on a little vacation. Kids love all things water related, and grand parents love the mountains, so Tahoe was a perfect destination for us. We were looking for a property close to the lake, with enough space for 3 generations to spread out. Wish list included a property with access to a pool in a peaceful neighborhood, with shops/ restaurants nearby. We enjoy the natural beauty of Tahoe's north shore, South shore tends to be too commercial for us.
We really lucked out when we found a townhouse at Brockway Springs. After scouring vrbo, craigslist and expedia -- we finally came upon this hidden gem through Marmot Realty. The condo (townhouse) was spacious, spotless, everything in the unit had been updated and the bathrooms and kitchen were very modern and luxurious. The complex is right on the lake, and every unit has lake views, as well as decks to enjoy the views from!
The pool is fantastic - located on the lake with magnificent views. The property also has a private pier with amazing views. Another bonus was being walking distance from Kings Beach -- really wonderful in the summer - plenty of cafes and water sports. It offered up the best of Tahoe - the condo was tranquil with lovely views, but we were steps away from the beach action. The property is also about 5 mins from the Cal/ Nevada border - so it's easy to get to a casino in the evening. The lovely Hyatt hotel is about 10 minutes away (we never made it there because our complex was so pretty).
We drove around the lake one day which was gorgeous. Also took a Gondola ride at Heavenly, and visited the gorgeous Emerald Bay. Wanted to visit squaw, and take a boat ride along the lake, but we ran out of town. Gives us an excuse to return.
Brockway springs is a lovely property, with a fantastic lakefront setting. Perfect for a summer getaway!
