Glenbrook is situated on the east shore of Lake Tahoe, this small resort community is located just west of the state capital and 12 miles from South Lake Tahoe. With four distinct seasons, Glenbrook has winter lows in the 20s and summer highs in the low 80s. About 250 residents call this luxury piece of Lake Tahoe home year round. 

The community is named after the Glenbrook House hotel and is at an elevation of 6,250 feet.

As the oldest settlement on Lake Tahoe, it played a significant part of Nevada's statehood as the main supplier of timber to the Comstock Lode and Virginia City. The first settlers of the valley, which included Captain Augustus W. Pray, arrived in 1860. It was named for its two primary geographic features — Glen, a secluded valley, and Brook, a small stream.

Glenbrook includes the communities of; Lincoln Park, Hidden Woods, Lakeridge, Cave Rock, Logan/Cedarbrok, Pittman Terrace and Uppaway.


Glenbrook is the remainder of the once vast holdings of the Carson and Tahoe Lumber and Fluming Company which, at one time, controlled over 50,000 acres of timber land in the Tahoe Basin and on the eastern slope of the Sierra. As a community, Glenbrook began its history in 1860 when Captain A. W. Pray built the Lake’s first mill on the south side of Glenbrook Bay. The settlement which evolved around this early mill grew steadily for the next ten years under Pray’s supervision.


By 1881, Glenbrook was the largest lumber manufacturing town in Nevada, with production exceeding 20 million board feet a year and with a population well in excess of one thousand. During the next two decades, timber was harvested from nearly every accessible area of the Lake and hauled to Glenbrook by tugboat for milling. Only a few thousand acres were left untouched by the end of the 1890′s. With the depletion of timber and the decrease in demand for lumber by Virginia City as mine production waned, the direction of Glenbrook’s future changed. In 1896, Duane Bliss, the principal architect of Tahoe’s development, launched a new era with the christening of his new passengership, the S. S. Tahoe. Within a short time, this once little-known logging lake became the foremost mountain resort in the western United States.

Opening in 1907, the Glenbrook Inn became an exclusive summer getaway for those preferring an elegant yet understated vacation environment. The Inn’s guest book, still on hand, bears witness to visits from Mark Twain, Rita Hayworth, Leland Stanford, Ulysses Grant, and Clark Gable among others. In 1926, Glenbrook opened its golf course – Golf Digest called it a beauty and the great Ben Hogan was a fan.

The Glenbrook Club is a private club located on Lake Tahoe’s beautiful east shore in Glenbrook, Nevada. Club members and their guests enjoy a unique nine-hole golf course, Pro Shop and Clubhouse, with a restaurant that is open from mid-June through early October each year.

Members of the Glenbrook Club are residents of Glenbrook, Uppaway Estates, and other nearby communities.
