CAPTRAN
is
Keith Trowbridge
a native Canadian, began edging
into the spotlight in 1975
when he founded
Captran On Sanibel Island
with the Sanibel Beach Club.
To many he was
"the father of timesharing"
By the start of 1982 Captran was
involved in 36 Resorts ib Florida,
Canada and the Caribbean.

from a newspaper article
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 1973
Innisfree Companies
of California is the original
proprietor of deeded ownership
timeshares in the US.
In 1973, in a joint venture with the
Hyatt company, Innisfree’s first
development was at Brockway
Springs in Lake Tahoe , California.
It was at this resort in Lake Tahoe
that timeshare was first used to
describe vacation time purchased
from a resort.
A group of developers:
Carl Berry,
Greg Bright, Paul Grey, Dave Irmer,
and Doug Murdock, are credited
with coining the term “timeshare”.
They felt that the term “timeshare”
would help them get their point
across to investors that the
properties they wished to finance
represented interval ownership
among many parties.  
The developers were correct,
since many bankers were already
familiar with the term “timeshare”
it became more and more
associated with
the Lake Tahoe project.
As a result when Innisfree filed
paperwork with the California
Department of Real Estate, the
term “timeshare” was used on the
application, further popularizing
the term at the
State administrative level.
By utilizing the term “timesharing”
in promotional materials, Innisfree
succeeded in making “timeshare”
into a household word

Brockway Springs Resort,
Address: 101 Chipmunk St., POB 276
Kings Beach, California, United

It is said that Brockway Springs
was the first deeded timeshare
project in the world.
Once a historic spa, the property
was developed at the turn of the
nineteenth century into a lakefront
resort. Today, Brockway Springs is a
gated resort community with 78
condo units and 19 multi-million
dollar homes.

Career

Developing
Brockway Springs
with the Hyatt Corporation
- 1972 -
"In the fall of 1972 when we
were putting things together,
we talked to Los Angeles
advertising agencies and
bankers using the name
multiple ownership, for want of
a better name. One afternoon
Charlie Bird, a bright and
creative ad-agency owner,
suggested a jazzier name
adapted from the then-new
concept of mainframe
computer
timesharing.
The concept was the same --
shared computer time or
shared condominium time."
- 1973 -
In the winter of 1973, Innisfree
started timeshare sales. "We
sold
14-day interests,"
Berry says, "because we were
afraid to break down the
product into a one-week
interest. People might
perceive one week was not
long enough. We sold
fixed-week waterfront
condominiums
for $3,200.00 to $9,500.00"
-
Five of Brockway Springs
-- 75 waterfront condominiums
were sold as 25 two-week
interests, and 70 were sold as
whole-owner condominiums.
Brockway Innisfree
sold four product lines
-- acreage, condominiums,
homesites, and
timeshares.

Brockway Springs Resort
by Jeanne Cooper
Thursday, September 27, 2007
Who knew there were hot
springs at the edge of
oh-so-cold Lake Tahoe?
Since 1870, a procession of
resorts and hotels have made
use of the springs at the
northern tip of Kings Beach,
including
California's
first registered
time-share
condominiums.

Today, the thermal waters
that give Brockway Springs
Resort its name are restricted
to heating a year-round pool so
close to the lake, you'd
think you were swimming in it
- except for the fact that
you're not freezing.
With autumn's sunny days and
cool nights upon us, this may
be Tahoe's best place.
