"This location was awesome! It seemed like we were in our own alpine paradise far away from anything but 4 miles away is the old town of Truckee. Everything is there that you could ever need or want.
I took my wife here for a surprise 26th honeymoon getaway :) The owner David was very easy to work with and obviously cared that we enjoyed our stay at his own personal family lake house. VERY nicely furnished - none of the typical rental garage sale furnishings here!
It's almost like being on Kauai... you start thinking about moving in! We relaxed by the fire... plugged in Pandora to the stereo system and played our favorite 80s music...
This is the note I sent David after our trip...
"Everything was very nice. Your lake house is absolutely beautiful! My wife had an idea we were going to the Truckee area but didn't know for sure... I just told her to bring warm clothes and pack for 3 nights. We went to Pianeta's Italian for dinner, went to see the gorgeous views from Rainbow Bridge and the top of the pass on old route 40, checked out the amazing Ritz Resort at Northstar, walked and shopped old main street Truckee and had lunch at Burger Me. We spent an hour in Ace Hardware... what fun - they have EVERYTHING! That is the most awesome hardware store ever!
I'm an early riser and it was great to get up while it was still dark and watch the changes on the lake through sunrise and after. The weather was cold but dry and felt much warmer than it was. On Tuesday afternoon in Truckee it was jeans and t-shirts - almost 70F and warmer in the sun.
We had a great time enjoying each other and being together... your lake house just made everything better! We were sad to leave but glad to have the memories.""

"Great Stay!!! Couldn't have asked more a more comfortable spot for me and my family to stay. There is something for everyone here whether it be a day at the beach, a beautiful hike, a day relaxing on the deck, quick jaunt down to see Lake Tahoe. this cabin is in the middle of it all. Don't even get me started on the stars here at night. your family will not lack in comfort or pleasures in this steal of a cabin. Mine sure didn't.
Thank you patty and Joe"

"My husband and I recently returned from a 4 night stay at the cabin. It is in a great location; walking distance to the lake and two beaches (one public, one private), and a 7 minute drive in to Truckee.
Lots of amenities, WiFi worked fine, quiet, and dog friendly. Because we like and need to get away a few times a year, we'll likely be staying at the 'Squirrel's Nest' again! Thanks Mary for your prompt email and phone responses!"
