Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: Hands on owner who pays attention to communication with visitors as well as property maintenance and upgrades. Please see our reviews. This home is our own retreat and is showered with attention and pride.

Why the Owner Chose Truckee:
We bought this house several years ago for our own private use and have upgraded every aspect of the home. Our kids are getting older and our schedules have gotten busier, so we have decided to share our home away from home :) We chose *this* home because of its location and easy access! It is close to Old Town Truckee which has great shopping and fantastic restaurants. This home is located 15 minutes from several downhill as well as cross country ski resorts such as Tahoe Donner, Sugar Bowl, Northstar, Alpine Meadows, and Squaw Valley USA.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This is a home, not just a house. It's furnished in a 4-5 star fashion and not just with cast off or dated furnishings often found in rental properties. When you stay with us you will enjoy a unique 'old Tahoe' experience.
