About the owner: We moved to the Truckee-Tahoe area and fell in love with the scenic & rural qualities of the community of Hirschdale located just below the residential district of Glenshire. We reside next door to this rental and maintain the home and winter access. We have lived in the community of Hirschdale for many years. We pride ourselves in providing our guests with a welcoming and satisfying stay. We are an active retired couple who enjoy the mountains, camping, fishing and all things 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 a vacation home here so others can enjoy the beauty of the Truckee River. You are close to historic Town of Truckee, all 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 nearby streams, lakes & reservoirs offer additional fishing opportunity, boating, watersports, hiking & biking. The scenic views 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!
