Truckee house description

Wilkie House is a beautifully decorated home built in 1885 during Truckee's boom years. 3 large bedrooms (2 upstairs, 1 downstairs), each with a queen and twin. 2 full bathrooms, one upstairs, one downstairs. Large dining room with seating for 10. Large living room with fireplace, plus sun porch to catch the warm winter sun. Delightful country kitchen with eating nook. Basement has washer/dryer and access from outside to bring in and store your ski gear. Cable TV, wi-fi, printer.
Wilkie House is in a relatively sedate neighborhood, without a lot of traffic. Only two blocks from downtown Truckee, you can avoid the hassles of driving in bad weather. Walk to town to enjoy Truckee's shopping, restaurants, and bars without worrying about parking or driving home.
Grocery shopping is only a few minutes down Donner Pass Road.
Some of the world's best fly-fishing is minutes away, and the good folks at Mountain Hardware will be happy to set you up with flies, gear, and tips.

                          Just two blocks from historic downtown Truckee, this home built in 1885 is one of the few remaining from Truckee's boom times. It is the perfect starting point for your Tahoe winter and summer adventures. Enjoy downhill and cross country skiing, biking, boating, hiking and fishing. Ten minutes from phenomenal fly-fishing on the Truckee River. 10 minutes from horse stables offering lessons and trail rides. Leave your car parked and walk downtown for shopping, eating and drinking.

                          Why the Owner Chose Truckee:
                          Wilkie House is ideally located to access the best skiing of North Tahoe. While we enjoy Alpine Meadows and Squaw Valley, Northstar and Sugar Bowl are also very close.
