Nestled in the pines of Lake Tahoe’s eastern shore, Galilee is located at 1776 US Hwy 50 (Lincoln Highway), Glenbrook, NV 89413. Travel time is about 45 minutes from the Reno-Tahoe International Airport (RNO), 20 minutes each from South Lake Tahoe, Incline Village, or Carson City, and just over 3 hours from the San Francisco Bay Area. Those braving the drive from the Las Vegas area can expect a 7 to 8 hour journey.
Coming from either direction on Hwy 50, there is a green highway sign that says “Galilee” with an arrow pointing lakeward (west) about 100 yards before the entrance to our private driveway. Galilee is north of the tunnel at Cave Rock and south of the junction with NV-28. It lies almost directly across the street from the Glenbrook Post Office, and just slightly south from the Tahoe-Douglas Fire Station #5. Follow our driveway steeply downhill toward the lake, and once you near the church you can choose to either turn left to park in the lot beside the church or continue on down the main driveway to park where the road makes a circle.
Galilee sits at about 6,300 feet. Summers tend to be dry with warm days, cool nights, and an occasional thunderstorm. The aspen trees turn beautiful colors come autumn, and snows fall with some regularity between late November and April. While snow often melts quickly in camp, it falls deeper and lingers longer on our nearby trails, making for great sledding, snowshoeing, and cross country skiing. Springtime brings beautiful wildflowers and waterfalls in the surrounding hillsides.
