About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

This beautiful 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom condo is your perfect base for experiencing all the best that North Lake Tahoe has to offer, from year round outdoor recreation to dining and shopping in historic downtown Truckee.

In Truckee near the intersection of I-80 and CA-89, the condo is centrally located: there are numerous outdoor recreation opportunities in all directions, including world-class hiking, mountain biking, fishing and fly-fishing, and golfing, as well as alpine and cross-country skiing, sledding, snowshoeing, and other winter activities.

The condo comfortably sleeps six, with 2 full bedrooms and a converted study with 2 bunk beds serving as a 3rd bedroom. It's a great space for families and kids. It also features wireless internet, gas fireplace, full kitchen with all new appliances, hardwood floors, washer-drier, and a spacious living area. Topping it all off is the large private hot tub on the back porch. The unit is available for weekend, short-term, long-term, and vacation rentals.

The complex also has a community pool (summer only), spa and workout room, horseshoe pits, a sand volleyball court, bocce, and outdoor grills and benches.

Within a 3-minute walk are a bagel shop, pizza restaurant, Chinese food restaurant, grocery store, drug store, and several other restaurants. Downtown Truckee, with its shops and restaurants, is just a 3-minute drive away. The north shore of Lake Tahoe is a quick 15-20 minute drive to the south, and Reno is only 35-40 minutes east.

Ski resorts within a 25-minute drive include: Sugar Bowl, Squaw Valley, Northstar, Homewood, Alpine Meadows, Donner Ski Ranch, Mt. Rose, Tahoe Donner, and Royal Gorge (cross-country only).

About Tom P.

We are two families who live in the greater Bay Area and love to escape to the Sierra for hiking, skiing, snowshoeing, and fishing, among other activities.

Tom P. purchased this condo in 2010

Why Tom P. chose Truckee

Truckee offers a perfect combination of everything the Tahoe area has to offer: small-town, old-west feel; immediate and easy access to lakes, hiking, skiing, fishing and so many other recreation options; both relaxed and fine dining options, and an easy drive from S.F., Sacramento, or Reno.

What makes this condo unique

The location is just seconds from the freeway, yet it is extremely quiet. It's centrally located: all the North Shore ski areas are within 15 minutes, and charming downtown Truckee is a 3-minute drive (or quick summer bike ride) away.

Having a grocery store, drug store, and several restaurants a block away means we can spend a weekend without driving if we want.

Donner Lake is just a few minutes away, and is a perfect spot for family outings, summer or winter.

Perfect unit for our family!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the layout of his unit! With the double set of bunk beds in the back room, this unit could easily accommodate 8 people. The comfortable living/kitchen quarters served as the center of activity, yet any one of us could easily retreat into one of 3 surrounding bedrooms for peace and quiet if needed. Tom was awesome... he consistently and patiently responded to all our questions regarding hikes and things to do. Since we were there on the 4th, crowds were plentiful on the Tahoe beaches which is why the pool and hot tub were especially appreciated. We would come back in a heartbeat.

Well Equipped and Convenient

  • 5 of 5

We booked this condo for a last minute Thanksgiving stay. It was a great layout for our family, it was well stocked with everything we needed, and the location was great. We could walk to the grocery store for last minute items we needed, and it was a quick drive to all the places we visited (Downtown Truckee, Northstar, and Squaw Valley). I can definitely see us booking it again!

Delightful two-month stay

  • 5 of 5

Our two-month stay in his condo has been delightful. We loved having the garage for our car and for storage. The location is perfect and just as the description states, is close to restaurants, post office, coffee shop, and I-80. The hot tub on the deck is a fabulous addition, although the pool community club house also has one and we used that quite a few times, too. The pool has a nice lap area that members respect for those that want to swim laps. There's a great workout area also available. There's a regular-sized washer and dryer available to tenants that proved to be very valuable. The kitchen is well stocked with cooking and baking utensils. We enjoyed having the fireplace for those cool times in May. The condo was clean and all in all we loved this place and would want to come back.

Truckee provides the best combination of convenience, amenities, skiing/hiking, small-town charm and history of any area in the Lake Tahoe region.

In winter, you'll find nearly a dozen ski resorts, and in summer, there is plentiful golf, mountain biking, boating and water activities on several lakes and rivers. Fall and spring offer great off-season opportunities for solitude and adventure, and the shopping in Truckee and down the hill in Reno is always available in inclement weather!

Plus, it is an easy 40-minute drive up the hill from Reno, and only 1.5 hours from the Sacramento airport.
