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 Glenbrook
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!

Best place to stay on the lake!
This trip was our second time to stay at Rockwood Cottage. Our favorite vacation home has gotten even better! The owners added 2 new double seated kayaks which we used daily. You will not find a better rental on the lake. The cottage is spotless, extremely well appointed with electronics (TVs in every room), dishes, beach towels, etc. the owners really have thought of everything. The architecture, furnishings & proximity to the lake cannot be beat.
Awesome location! Super responsive host. We plan on staying again during ski season.
The cottage is really nice and Rebecca is very attentive to any needs/wants you may have. My wife fell in love with the place, we are going back just before Christmas.
Loved every minute of our stay. Great accommodations.
Beautiful cozy cottage....so much attention to detail to make our stay special. Can’t wait to come back.
Great place, great location, great owners. They really took care of everything here. My family and I had a wonderful time. I would definitely book again.
The Perfect Retreat
Such an amazing find for our anniversary weekend getaway! The location was ideal and close to everything we needed, and the lakefront access was great - took a swim and used one of the kayaks for a sunset venture one day. Loved all the little touches, beautiful decor, gourmet goodies with wine/beer in the kitchen and even bath goodies in the bedroom! There was such an incredible attention to detail we were truly blown away! We made good use of the grill for dinner. The house is so comfortable inside and out. Loved the showers! Can't say enough about this special place!
