Historic downtown Truckee offers quaint shops, restaurants and Amtrak train station. For a glimpse into Truckee's colorful history, plan a visit to the Truckee-Donner Chamber of Commerce at the Amtrak Train Station, Old Truckee Jail, Donner Memorial State Park, and the downtown Railroad Museum. For adventure, travel on Amtrak's California Zephyr. Summer events include a weekly Farmer's Market, free music concerts at Regional Park on Wednesday nights and "Truckee Thursdays" where you can stroll the downtown streets of Truckee and enjoy local arts & crafts, food trucks and music. The 4th of July Parade and Truckee Fire District Pancake Breakfast are popular annual events for visitors. There are many challenging golf courses in the Tahoe-Truckee area. Lake Tahoe's many ski resorts are world famous, including Squaw Valley, home of the 1960 Winter Olympics. Kayak, jet ski, and paddle board rentals are available at Lake Tahoe and Donner Lake. Equestrian rides nearby. Enjoy the sandy beachs of Lake Tahoe & attend the Shakespeare Festival on the lake. See Lake Tahoe upfront on a family or dining excursion on a paddlewheel boat. Hot Air Balloon rides in Truckee offer magnificent views of the region. Donner Lake is popular for swimming, kayaking, boating & fishing. Hike or bike on the many Forest Service roads around Lake Tahoe and at nearby Boca and Stampede Reservoirs just a short bike ride away. Mountain climbing areas are popular on Old Highway 40 over Donner Summit. A virtual playground all year around. Whatever you like to do, chances are the Truckee-Tahoe area provides it. Visit the State of Nevada, just 25 minutes away, for casino dining & gambling, museums, planetarium, antique stores, music concerts & Broadway shows. The "old west" silver mining town of Virginia City south of Reno is a great family day trip worth taking with scenic train rides. Reno-Tahoe International Airport offers exceptional travel convenience to our location off Interstate 80 - you can't beat that!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1984

About the owner: We moved to the Truckee-Tahoe area many years ago and fell in love with the small scenic & rural community of Hirschdale on the Truckee River. We reside next door to this rental and maintain the home. We enjoy providing our guests with a pleasant & welcome stay. We are an active couple who enjoy the mountains & streams, boating & fishing, gardening, camping & travel, and everything outdoors.

Why the Owner Chose Truckee, CA, USA:
We have always desired to live by the Truckee River. The community here is small, rural, and quiet. We enjoy offering our vacation home to others so they can enjoy the beauty of the Truckee River. You are close to historic Town of Truckee, shopping & restaurants, ski resorts & golf courses, lakes & streams, and the many visitor attractions of the Tahoe-Truckee area yet feels worlds away from the crowds.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
If you love the outdoors, this location is ideal. The river offers you year-round premium fly fishing, floating & kayaking, hiking & exploring, while the nearby reservoirs of Boca & Stampede offer additional fishing opportunity, boating, kayaking, watersports, hiking, biking and exploring. The scenic views here are remarkable offering year-round pleasure as well as quiet solitude. Beautiful sunrises, clear starry nights & exceptional full moons will take your breath away. You can relax, unwind, and enjoy yourself here!
