This is the perfect retreat for those wanting to recreate or work professionally in the area. With venetian plaster walls, and radiant heat floors, it is a rather luxurious setting, with lots of sun, and a warm feeling. Because of the limestone floors, the space also stays cool in the summer.
The studio has a fully stocked kitchen, bathroom, safe bike, ski, or board storage, and a very comfortable bed. With high speed internet, cable tv, and an exceptionally comfortable living area, it is a perfect place to retreat to after a long day of paddling, skiing or biking; or to get some work done. It has a covered parking area, and is in a quiet, friendly neighborhood only a mile off Hwy 80, and within two miles of Donner Lake and Downtown Truckee. It is only 15 minutes from the Sugar Bowl Ski Area, and about 20 minutes from Northstar, Squaw Valley or Alpine Meadows.
The studio is 1000 square feet with access to a fenced back yard if you would like to bring your trusty canine along! Friendly, respectful and quiet dogs are always welcome! The house is set up like a two layer duplex, and the owners have a separate entrance. The house is set off the road, and behind our garage and office building. There are only two of us, and we are both professionals that work all day. We are both friendly, quiet, and very respectful of privacy. We are available for information about local trails and rides, dining in the area, or other questions. We also understand if you would rather not see us.
Great place to stay! We use the place for family and friends, and they love it so much we want to make it available to you! Although it is in a neighborhood, there are trails right out the door that give access to many great mountain bike and hiking loops that are on Forest Service land between Armstrong and Tahoe Donner. It is nice to not have to drive anywhere to get in a good hike or bike with views of Donner Lake and the Mountains. Coldstream Canyon is also only about 1-1/2 miles away with more loops and access to the PCT, and classic mountain bike loops. Road bikers can ride the classic summit ride, or around Donner Lake from the house, as we are only 1 mile from the classic starting point at Paco's Bike shop.
Come stay here! It is the ultimate jumping off point for adventures in the Tahoe Basin!

After traveling and adventure guiding around the world, I can honestly say Truckee has it all! Great hiking, biking, swimming, bird watching, fall colors, great skiing, and excellent restaurants with world class food. Oh....did I mention the friendly and helpful people? After work each day, it is hard to decide whether to paddle board, go for a trail run, or ride my bike up the 'summit' to some of the absolutely most stunning views, and admire the rock climbers along the way.
Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: You may have noticed all the information about playing outdoors in our listing. We were outdoor professionals and river guides before we settled down to teach Swiftwater Rescue, Technical Rope Rescue and Wilderness First Aid. We own a company called Sierra Rescue, and spend our recreational time running in the mountains, biking, paddle boarding, or playing with our dogs.
Why the Owner Chose Truckee: It is a great place to either work out of, or play out of! It has easy access to anywhere in town, and is close to Hwy 80 without the sound of the freeway. A quiet, friendly neighborhood, in which you can access trails and views of Donner Lake one block away. The space is quiet and oh so comfortable with high speed internet so that you can keep with with work, or friends and family.
The Unique Benefits at this Studio: We fell in love with this place because of the quality craftsmanship, as well as the unbelievable benefit of the radiant heat floors. To come in from a cold day of skiing or playing and be instantly warm is such a benefit. We supply maps for your use, and are available for questions, but deeply respect privacy.
