Truckee townhome description

This lake and mountain retreat is also our home-away-from home. You will be just 5 minutes from Northstar Mountain Resort; Truckee shopping and restaurants; and 15 minutes from Kings Beach on Lake Tahoe.

It features a sunny and spacious great room with vaulted pine ceilings and large windows overlooking the woods and views of Northstar Mountain and the Martis Creek area.

The kitchen is state of the art with granite slab counters, stainless GE Monogram appliances, wood floors and plenty of cabinet space. Small appliances and all cooking and grill utensils are provided as well, e.g., toaster, coffee maker, waffle maker, kitchen-aid mixer.

Relax in the jetted tub located in the master bath or the 8-person private hot tub with views after a challenging day hiking, mountain biking, skiing, riding... or if you just need an excuse to relax.
