Car: Recommended

Nestled in the middle of a mountain playground with mountain bike trails, rock climbing, river kayaking and hiking trails within minutes of the house. Ride from the house into Coldstream Canyon or up Donner Pass for great mountain and road biking. Hikers can access the world famous Pacific Crest Trail, Cold Stream Canyon, the remote waterfalls of the Royal Gorge of the American river or a dozen of mountain lakes in the area.

Across the road from a great set of piers in beaches. You can dock your boat or watercraft on the piers from 5am to 10pm. The beach and piers get great southern exposure and lots of sun.

Just a mile from several good markets and restaurants and 3 miles to historic downtown Truckee.
