Truckee house description

This house has vaulted wood ceilings and hardwood floors. There is a huge backyard with small hills for sleding. Recently renovated, it has new appliances and updated appearance.

Only 5 Miles from Northstar at Tahoe, you can actually see the slopes from the backyard. Biking and horseback riding in the summer.

For the kids, we have a play room, tree fort, and a 'ground' fort.

Please note: The Vrbo/homeaway system is now blocking my ability to return emails. So, you need to include your phone number in your inquiry. Otherwise, you'll never hear from me.
Also, I will not rent to anyone unless I have spoken to them. For this reason, and due to system inaccuracies, I do not recommend using the 'book online' option.
If you prefer to use this option anyway, please call first. I find that tenants are much happier to hear details, options, and corrections to online booking info.
Keywords: Large House, big yard, secluded neighborhood, lots of parking, hardwood floors, wood ceilings, cabin feel with house benefits

              Tahoe is full of active, adventurous people. Whatever isn't done by the tourists, IS done by the residents.

              If you can think of an activity, chances are, it is available here.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2009

              About the owner: I bought this house because I love skiing and snowboarding. I usually need to be in Sacramento area for the weekends, so renting-out the Truckee house for the weekends makes a lot of sense. I usually can't get back up there until Monday or later, which is why I usually offer Sunday nights for free(sometimes Monday night too). Summer in Tahoe is great for fishing, biking, hiking, etc. But, as I mentioned earlier, I got the house for boarding and skiing. So, if you like summer sports, that is the time when I give the best deals.

              Why the Owner Chose Truckee:
              I wanted to have a place to go near skiing, and Northstar was my favorite ski resort. I loved this location because it is a secluded neighborhood, yet it is a short drive from freeways. The fact that the house was so great was just a bonus. I really love the location relative to restaurants, skiing, woods, downtown, and recreation of all kinds.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              I like that BOTH of the heaters in this house are oversized for the task. The house can be heated very promptly. The large driveway, and extra parking areas are great for when I have lots of guests.
