Stateline Point from Mt Rose
Built in the 1930s for a San Francisco family as a summer retreat, this authentic "Old Tahoe" home exudes the warmth of an earlier era, but has been lovingly restored to offer amenities of modern life.
World class golf (fourteen courses) and the largest concentration of ski facilities in North America (including Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, Northstar and Heavenly) are nearby; the closest two within six miles. Gourmet dining and Nevada casino nightlife are within a five-minute walk, and every form of summer recreation is available within a few minutes' drive.
The Lakeside Pool
Brockway Springs was an ancestral summer home of the Washoe people of Nevada, who came to escape the summer heat below. When white settlers arrived with the Trans-Continental Railway, Brockway's pier was the departure point for steamers that plied the lake.
The Brockway community (which mistakenly was placed in Nevada through a surveying error) was developed in the early 1900s as a summer retreat for the rich and famous, centered around the stately Brockway Hotel and its hot springs. Brockway's golf course hosted the first "Crosby."
Where the grand hotel once stood, there now are showplace homes, with a magnificent lakeside pool, tennis courts, club house with a lakeside lounge, gym and saunas. The original 180-foot pier that served the earliest visitors remains. All of these facilities are available to our guests.
