Truckee house description

This is a great house on a sunny lot in Soda Springs! It is BIG! - almost 3,000 square feet. It is perfect for large family gatherings or getting together with friends. It sleeps 19 people in beds and futons and has 3 1/2 BATHROOMS (that's important)!!! Bring three families and share the expenses.

In the late spring, summer, and fall, there is boating, hiking, fishing, rock climbing, and both mountain and road biking -- something for everyone. HIKERS will enjoy the PACIFIC CREST TRAIL, just two miles from the house. MOUNTAIN BIKERS can experience the HOLE IN THE GROUND single track trail, which is rated 11th in the world for advanced bikers. It actually passes in front of our house. Donner Summit is a ROCK CLIMBERS paradise. There are hundreds of routes on beautiful granite, right off the road two miles from the house. Most are Class 5. Donner Lake is five really beautiful miles away and Ice Lakes (Serene) is two miles away.

For downhill skiers, the house is two miles from Sugar Bowl or Donner Ski Ranch and four miles from Boreal. Northstar, Squaw Valley, and Alpine Meadows are about 30 minutes away. Soda Spings Mountain Resort is a quarter mile away and designed for young kids and families. Royal Gorge, the LARGEST cross country ski resort in North America, is less than a quarter mile from our house.

The first floor is a bunk room/game room. It is IDEAL FOR TEENAGERS! It has a queen futon, two full futons, and two bunk beds. One of the bunk beds has a full size bed on the bottom. There is also a pool table, a ping-pong table, two TV's, a stereo, a DVD player, and an Xbox. The first floor is heated with a large propane fireplace and has a full bathroom. The entry room on the first floor also has a queen futon and can be closed off for privacy to create a FOURTH bedroom.

The second floor is BEAUTIFUL - very rustic and warm with vaulted, open beam ceilings and lots of windows. It has a 'great room' style living room, dining room, and kitchen; a master bedroom and bathroom; a laundry room (laundry soap and fabric sheets are provided); and a half bath. The master bedroom has a queen-size bed. The kitchen is spacious and fully furnished. The living room includes a very efficient propane fireplace.

The third floor has two bedrooms and a full bath. One bedroom has a queen-size bed and the other has a full-size bed.

LINENS ARE INCLUDED for all beds and futons.

We have a sunny front deck and a shady back deck with a gas bar-b-que. The one-car garage has SLEDS and SNOW SHOES as well as places to store your gear. There is also a horse shoe pit and a really cool OFF ROAD GOLF COURSE behind the house. The house is on a road that is plowed well and often. There is parking for five vehicles.

This is a dog friendly home. You know your dog. If you're going to be out all day and leave your dog in the house, make sure he or she can handle that kind of situation. We do not have a fenced yard. There is an additional one-time $25 fee for pets.

We love our house and look forward to our own family gatherings. We really enjoy sharing it with other families and absolutely love hearing about their visits. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2007

              About the owner: My husband and I love the Tahoe area and we’ve been looking for the right house for years. We found this great house in Soda Springs and talked my parents into buying it with us. Our family has so much fun up there! We like to ski/board, snow shoe, hike, bike, kayak, play horseshoes and cards, eat, drink, and generally enjoy life! Because the house is big, it holds the whole family – three generations. It’s a wonderful place to get together and we really enjoy sharing it with others and hearing their stories!

              Why the Owner Chose Truckee:
              Soda Springs is a really great area. It’s a very small town with a Mom & Pop grocery store, a couple of ski/board rental shops, and sometimes a gas station! Everyone says it’s what Tahoe used to look like. Soda Springs offers the perfect small town atmosphere and we have Truckee, with all of it's ammenities, just 15 minutes away. We have Donner Lake and Ice Lakes within five minutes of the house and a creek a really short walk away. Sugar Bowl, Boreal, Donner Ski Ranch, Soda Springs Ski Resort, and Royal Gorge are between one and five minutes away. We have neighbors, but don’t live in a neighborhood with someone right next door. There are pine trees everywhere!
