High vaulted ceilings and massive windows bring the surrounding forest right inside the home. Your family will enjoy the luxury of a beautifully decorated designer home, the extreme privacy of a forested environment, and the convenience of being very close to all that charming Truckee has to offer. The home is large, and well designed with four bedrooms (two master suites), a sleeping loft, and 3.5 bathrooms. A well appointed kitchen and dining area are located within the great room. A national forest starts right outside the back door, so the privacy you'll enjoy is unmatched. Bringing children will be easy, as the home is equipped with 2 porta-cribs, 2 hi-chairs, and loads of toys, games, and movies for children of all ages. We think your stay will be so pleasant that you'll want to book our home for use in every season of the year.

Beautiful, clean and well-supplied
I'm always scared to book a house online but this house turned out to be incredibly beautiful, well-decorated with new-looking nice furniture, and clean. Whew! My husband and I stayed at this house with two other couples and our children for a long weekend. We all enjoyed our stay and all said we would recommend the house to others and would book here again. There was plenty of room for all of us and the house was well-stocked with everything we could need, including everything in the kitchen to cook and serve meals. The moms in the group especially appreciated the highchairs, cribs, toys and children's books, so we didn't have to lug all that stuff with us from home. We also loved the gas fireplace because with the flip of a switch, we could get that cozy Tahoe feel. I think one thing that really sets this house apart though is its location- it feels totally secluded and surrounded by gorgeous forrest instead of other houses, and yet it is not all the way up the hill in Tahoe Donner, which means it's a lot easier to hop into Truckee for groceries or to grab dinner/drinks. The only negative, in my opinion, is that we did see two coyotes just in front of the property, but that is part of going to the mountains so I guess i just need to get tougher. The kids and guys actually thought the coyote sighting was "cool."
Thank you for the great review. Sorry the coyotes were a bit of a negative. I hired them to add to the mountain/nature feel of the property, but perhaps two showing up was a bit intimidating. Glad you all enjoyed a great stay.
The perfect getaway for a family of 9
Our travel party included a set of grandparents, family of four with two young teens/tweens and a family of three with a two year old. We had all the space we needed to rest and relax. We enjoyed space to gather together and also plenty of privacy. The house is beautiful and well stocked. Instructions were clear. The area was great for a walk in the neighborhood. We also enjoyed deer and lots of little squirrels in the yard. We chose this house for its proximity to Reno for the airport and Lake Tahoe as our destination. What we found was that Donner Lake is even closer and so beautiful. We thoroughly enjoyed our vacation time at Alpenrose. We have already talked about going back!
Had an excellent stay here. Instructions for the home was well written and easy to follow. The home was clean, spacious, and had everything we needed for a great stay. Linen closet was well stocked, everything in the home was operational and in good working condition.
So glad you enjoyed your stay in our home. We try hard to make it a wonderful place for people to enjoy when in the Truckee-Tahoe area, so we're glad to know our efforts are appreciated by our guests.
Fantastic Lodge for family time and fun
My family had the pleasure of staying here for a long weekend with our friends and little ones. The location is a short drive from 80 but located in a lovely community with huge lots that felt very private. The home is beautiful inside and out and met all our expectations for a family friendly retreat. Rooms are fully equipped with comfortable linens & towels and the kitchen has plenty of cookware so we could easily relax and make meals at home. However, if you are looking to go out, there are plenty of options close by since Truckee is just down the road. The house even has toys and games to entertain the kids, although be advised there are stairs in the home if you have any crawlers or toddlers. There are 2 Master suites which provided plenty of room for everyone to have their own space but also a large greatroom and open kitchen to hang out and enjoy each other’s company. This house provided exactly the kind of Tahoe experience I envisioned for a great weekend in the mountains. Everyone in our group enjoyed themselves and we would definitely rent the home to again and recommend staying there.
Thank you Alison for the lovely review. I am so very happy your stay in our home was so positive and i do hope you return for another visit. Cindy
