One of the few agricultural buildings remaining in the Tahoe Basin, this large three-bay barn dominates the old ranch complex of the Glenbrook Inn and Ranch Resort. Oriented north-south to take advantage of winds off the lake, the barn has vertical board-and-batten walls that rise to broad gable ends with horizontal siding.
