Luxurious Brockway Springs Lake Tahoe

On the North shore of Lake Tahoe, near the quaint casinos of Crystal Bay Nevada, the community of Brockway has a rich history.

The Trans-Continental Railroad passed through Verdi, Nevada and Truckee, California, which had become mill towns serving the silver mines of Virginia City. The ease of travel over the Sierra Nevada opened the doors for many pioneers into California.

Lake Tahoe was only prized as a place to get timber. Loggers were cutting down the forests to build communities in the mining towns scattered along the Sierras. Truckee developed from a lumber mill too, but also had an ice mill in Boca, which served the nearby mines.

Healing Waters of Lake Tahoe

The first road to bring tourists from Truckee to Lake Tahoe was over what is now highway 267. Arriving at Brockway pier, travelers could catch steamers to travel up and down the shores of Lake Tahoe. Brockway actually got its name from Nathaniel Brockway, the uncle of the first postmaster to serve the area.

At the turn of the century, resorts based on wellness were springing up all over North America. After the hot springs at Brockway were discovered, a hotel was built to offer visitors healing baths. Guests could enjoy a combination of the exhilarating cold lake water, with alternating soaks in the hot springs.

Modern Brockway Springs

By the time the casinos of Crystal Bay, Nevada began attracting celebrities like Frank Sinatra and the Rat Pack, Brockway Hot Springs had changed hands several times. Brockway Springs was later developed into a condominium project of 78 privately owned units. Sold in 1994 for $3.5 million, it also became a gated community of 18 luxury homes.

Brockway Springs has the best in amenities, including a pier, pool, tennis courts and clubhouse, not to mention private access to the hot springs. Brockway Springs Lakefront Resort offers owners a rental program and boasts a half mile of private beach. The condo units rarely become available for sale, and offer lakefront living at affordable prices.
