Property description

Enjoy this spacious, mountain retreat with friends or family any time of year! Sleeps ten, with four bedrooms and three baths, plus loft and den (both with full size futons). There is an open floor plan with large kitchen and living area, and it is tri-level so rooms have privacy.

This home is kid friendly. There are stairs, as it is a tri-level home, and we have some gates available if needed for stairwells.

Interior furnishings have been recently upgraded and most everything is brand new. Kitchen- new cookware & utensils, silverware, plates, glasses, etc. Beds- 1 Cal King, 2 Queens, 1 Bunk, all brand new mattresses, linens throughout. New livingroom furnishings, including new sectional couch and LCD TV. Also included are many DVD movies, along with children's toys and sleds for outdoor fun!

This is the BEST LOCATION IN ALL OF TRUCKEE! Many people not from Truckee do not know about this hidden gem of a neighborhood- Martiswood Estates.

Our property is at the end of a cul-de-sac and borders Tahoe National Forest... talk about privacy! And no need to pile the kids in the car for a hike or sledding... just open up the front door. Bring your snowmobiles, cross-country skis, or mountain bikes and enjoy miles of trails.

All phone calls and Wi-Fi Internet access are free!

Car: Recommended

Located 5 minutes from downtown old Truckee, but sits on a quiet cul-de-sac on the National Forest edge


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

Why the Owner Chose Truckee:
Private and serene, we couldn't resist this location! When opening the car door the first time, all I could hear were the trees whispering, and all I could see were the massive trees surrounding the property - pure heaven!!

The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
You feel like you are home in the middle of the forest, no other tourists or vacationers to bother you, very peaceful setting and you can walk out the front door for your outdoor activities with no need to drive.
