              About the owner: We moved to the Truckee-Tahoe area and fell in love with the scenic & rural community here. We are an active couple who snowmobile, fish, boat, paddle, RV, & garden. We enjoy nature, the mountains, and the outdoors.

              Why the Owner Chose Truckee:
              We have always desired to live by the Truckee River. The community here is small, rural & quiet. We enjoy offering our home for vacation rental so others can enjoy the Truckee River. You are close to historic Town of Truckee, North Tahoe ski resorts & golf courses, mountains, lakes & streams, and the many visitor attractions of the Tahoe-Truckee area yet feels worlds away from the crowds.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              If you love the outdoors, this location is ideal. The river offers you year round fly fishing, seasonal kayaking & river rafting, while nearby streams, lakes & reservoirs offer additional fishing opportunity, boating, beaching, watersports, hiking & mountain biking and winter activities. The changing seasons here are remarkable offering vacationers year round pleasure as well as quiet solitude. Beautiful sunrises, clear starry nights & exceptional full moons will take your breath away. You can relax, unwind, and enjoy yourself here.
