About Rebecca Jennings
My husband, Aaron and I, dreamt for years of owning a cottage at Lake Tahoe. On Father's Day 2014, we were tooling around the Lake with our Zillow apps working overtime on our phones. We saw the listing for the Rockwood Cottage and had to see it! We drove immediately to Zephyr Cove and peeked in the windows. . .and it was love at first sight. This was our dream Tahoe Cottage. A little about us. . .my husband hails from Seattle, Washington, and works in the technology industry. I was born and raised in Alabama and moved to Nevada in 1988 to attend the University of Nevada. I then pursued a legal career and retired on August 31, 2014, from the mining industry where I served as Vice-President of Human Resources and General Counsel to a publicly traded gold mining company. I am now (happily) a full time mom to our Sweet Caroline!
Rebecca Jennings purchased this Cottage in 2014
Why Rebecca Jennings chose Zephyr Cove
My husband is an avid (and accomplished) skier - and, yes, our 2 year old started skiing at 17 months old! I, on the other hand, well....I can't ski very well. But. . .I can lay on the beach until there's no tomorrow. . .so, Rockwood Cottage was a perfect vacation home for us: 10 minutes from Heavenly Ski Resort and 75 feet from a private beach/cove! We love Lake Tahoe - the air, the mountains, the trees, the crystal clear water, the seasons, the nearby attractions! We are grateful for our blessings and the opportunity to own Rockwood Cottage and hope to carry on the legacy that Rosmarie so lovingly built over the last 20+ years.
What makes this Cottage unique
We fell in love with Rockwood Cottage because of the beautiful stone and rock work. . .the original structure was a sheepherder's one room cabin. It remains as the master bedroom to this day. When we peeked in the windows when we were looking for the right and perfect place - I first looked into the master bedroom and saw the stone floors. It was PERFECT! We then walked down the little path to the beach and just stood there in awe - imagining Caroline growing up on that beach and in that Cottage. It was simply perfect for us and we would love to share it with you and your family! Our first family photo as owners of Rockwood is depicted above - we toasted on the beach! Please join us! We would love to have you and your family as our guests at Rockwood!

Beautiful, well appointed, cozy, clean, great location!
My wife and I were so delighted to have stayed at Rockwood Cottage.. it definitely surpassed our expections. Rebecca was extremely helpful when we arrived.. The lake access is beautiful, and the location of the house, in general, is perfect. We hope to return one day!! Thank you so much!!
Similar to the other reviews here, this home is a special place. There's no doubt that if we come to Lake Tahoe again, we will hope to stay here. Matt was awesome, meeting us at the property and showing everything. Rebecca was amazingly responsive throughout the booking process. Note: the entrance to the neighborhood off the highway is slightly hard to find, make sure you're following your Map App closely. Super cool and quite neighborhood.
Such a wonderful experience. We loved everything about it. Truly a memory making weekend!
Great property/Best equipped cottage ever!
Hard to find, but once you are there it's totally awesome--a historic building, patio from which you can watch the sun set over Lake Tahoe and everything you could ask for, the property is a real find.
Beautiful, immaculate, welcoming, fully stocked (with high quality wares etc). The owners have thought of EVERYTHING.
A peaceful nest to recharge ones spirit. Will definitely be back.
Thank you for sharing this piece of Heaven.
Cozy, charming, rustic but well maintained and clean cottage. Very nice location next to the lake.
We were met on arrival by Matt, who manages the property, and shown around the cottage, the property and the adjacent lakefront. He was very friendly and helpful. The owner, Barbara also kept in touch on a regular basis, before and during our stay, to make sure we had everything we needed.
Very comfortable place. Both master suits were very clean and well stocked with towels, bedding, bath/shower supplies, and even a silver platter (literally) of goodies and surprises sitting on our bed when we arrived! There were tasty treats and wine/beer in the fridge, and fresh goodies on the counter- such a welcomed surprise after a long day of travel from the east coast. The cottage could not be more charming. Aged and rustic in all the right ways, modern only in the ways you would want. The kitchen is nicely appointed and well stocked with cookware, cutlery, dishes and spices, sugar, napkins, foil, etc so you do not have to buy most of "the small stuff." The outdoor grill and fire pit worked perfectly and were clean. The lighting is soft, with plenty of windows but have easy to use automatic shades for when you do not want the sun. Gas fireplaces in every room, each with their own temperature control. Plenty of seating, both inside and out, all of it very clean and comfortable.
New kayaks, paddles, life jackets were right outside the door. You do have to walk about 150 feet to the shore to get a good view of the lake, but the cottage has nice partial views and and nice wooded setting. I would definitely come here again!
