About Rebecca Jennings

My husband, Aaron and I, dreamt for years of owning a cottage at Lake Tahoe. Well, this past Father's Day, 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. The former owner Rosmarie, is as charming as her Rockwood Cottage. We struck a deal and closed on July 30, 2014. The Cottage has a long history of repeat guests and we fully intend to welcome all of the Rockwood guests year after year. We do plan to do some updating of the kitchen and bathrooms. . .but it is perfect the way it is!

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, who just turned 2!

Rebecca Jennings purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Rebecca Jennings chose Lake Tahoe, NV

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!

Excellent.. Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned after staying 3 days at this quiet, unique, cozy , charming well loved cottage. The owner, Rebecca, greeted us as we arrived and showed us around the cottage and answered our questions, and said she was only a phone call away if we needed anything. There were personal little touches thru out the cottage and she left us with wine, crackers and cheese, and a tray full of little gifts that we thoroughly enjoyed. The appliances and cookware were top of the line, as well as the TV, gas fireplace, and kitchen. The bathroom reminded me of a spa. There were realistic candles throughout the cottage which added to the ambiance. And the rain shower? I was in Heaven!!!. We chose to stay in and cook our meals instead of eating out, but downtown was a short drive away had we changed out minds. We just didn't want to leave once we arrived. The cottage was very clean and well maintained. We wanted for nothing. We explored down by the lake, which was a 2 minute easy walk and was greeted by beautiful scenery of majestic mountains with snow on them! We couldn't have asked for a better mini vacation. We have stayed in many VRBO's over the years and this cottage was by far the best! The pictures don't do justice. We will be back...

Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I wanted a long weekend getaway at Lake Tahoe for our first time there so we booked the Rockwood Cottage. From the moment we arrived we already wanted to stay longer. Rebecca went above and beyond to make the cottage feel like home with multiple personalize touches. She even took the time to meet us at the cottage the first day to give us a tour and show us around the immediate area. The location of the cottage was perfect for hanging out at the private beach area, accessing the kayaks, and a short drive away to the main attractions. In every way possible, the trip was perfect and left us wondering when is the next time we can make plans to stay at the Rockwood Cottage.

Returned after last years stay. We love the cabin! It has everything plus more that you need. The personal touches added are what makes this place a rare gem. You know Rebecca and Aaron love what they have and want their guests to love it as well and that is exactly why they will us as returning guests. We had such a relaxing time, just what the four of us all needed! Thank you so very much !

Beautiful & Charming Cottage

  • 5 of 5

I am so glad we found Rockwood Cottage for our stay in Lake Tahoe. It was absolutely perfect! This cottage is a true gem with its fantastic location and charm. The warm welcome we received from Rebecca as well as her special touches to the house to make us feel at home were truly appreciated. We can't wait to return to Lake Tahoe and would not think of staying anywhere else. Thank you Rebecca for everything - you helped make our stay very special.
