Truckee house description

Want to enjoy the breathtaking Sierra Mountains from a wonderful 3 bedroom / 2 bath cabin in Truckee?

There's so much to do -- two miles from historic downtown Truckee and the Donner Museum. Right off of Interstate 80 and 89 north so you can get to the lake (Tahoe) in 15 minutes and Reno for more food and entertainment choices (including gambling) in 30. The house sits next to the Tahoe Natl' forest and is just 2 miles from the Truckee River where you can fish, dunk, or go tubing.

There's swimming, water skiing, boating, hiking, biking, golfing and horseback riding. Popular beach and boating areas include Lake Tahoe, Donner and Prosser Lakes, and Boca and Stampede Reservoirs. The national forest has numerous hiking and biking trails and there are several golf courses in the area. This is a perfect location for winter as well, as many ski resorts are within a 10-15 minute drive, such as Northstar or Squaw Valley. Our big front yard is perfect for building snowmen, too!

The 3 bedrooms -- two w/queen beds, one w/two twin beds -- comfortably sleeps 6 (and there's 2 couches for overflow!). The two bathrooms have two full tub/shower with strong water pressure! You'll have all the conveniences you'll need to have a great time – TVs in several rooms, DVDs, a piano (for those musically adept), games, books, and more.

You can find our rates below. There is NO minimum stay required! There is a $125 cleaning charge and a refundable security deposit of $500 (within 7 days of vacating) for each stay.

Sorry, no pets.

                          Why the Owner Chose Truckee:
                          We fell in love with the Sierras and Truckee in particular because of its quaint yet hip feel, and when we saw this property we knew immediately that we had to have it. It's convenience to Lake Tahoe, ski resorts, Reno, night life, and the property's quiet surroundings make it a perfect home base. We furnished the home with lots of love and care and escape there from the busy SF Bay Area to relax and recharge.
