Why Cindy Lynds chose Truckee

We are in love with Tahoe! We started going to Tahoe as a couple, and when the kids were born, we kept going! We love everything about it - skiing, hiking, swimming, biking, tennis, breathing the air, the wildlife, the relaxed lifestyle. We have made so many memories here, and we hope that you can too!

Beautiful and comfortable house

  • 5 of 5

I went to this house with my family (6 adults and 4 children) at the end of February. We wanted to enjoy skiing and playing in the snow. Although the weather was not so good, it snowed and rained most of the time, we still enjoyed our stay very much. The house is so beautiful, comfortable, and well equipped that hanging out there was a pleasure. The children enjoyed playing in the snow and sliding in the backyard, playing games inside, and watching videos. The adults enjoyed preparing and eating our meals in a nice and well-equipped kitchen open to the dining room, socializing, and having happy kids. We also enjoyed skiing in the nearby resorts. We would definitely like to go back to this house.

Great Home, wonderful winter landscape!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I want to spend Christmas in a nice place, well located, easy access and try our first ski, so after a lot of looking on hotels and resorts I got here and we are quite shure this was the best option instead the high rates hotels.

The location is near to Reno so you can be there in 30 minutes, the town of Truckee is amazing and everybody love it is like 10 min and many options for ski.

The house has all you need you adults and kids, even the house is one floor all the rooms are well distribuited so everybody has privacy meanwhile other can see TV, play or be in the kitchen or dinning room.

The cabin is really a town home with all appliances and things you require, the kitchen has all make practically everything and let to all the people stay in touch the the main halls, the backyard has a deck with a gas grill and a lot of space you can practically dont know the limits of the house so you can take a walk in the all around, play with the snow and sledge down in the backyard, the house is quite cosy and outside is quiet. Cindy was so kind and helpful (I really made her a lot of questions ups!) during the selection of the house, finally I must say my family and my nephews (12 and 8) had a wonderful holidays and we hope we can return in the future, and I already telling my friends that we must plan another trip and stay there. There are plenty activities on winter as well on summer! Once again this is an amazing place to stay and I recommend it for shure!!. Thanks for this incredible holidays!

The best

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful and warm and feels lived in. There is a beautiful backyard and deck with everything you could want, a bbq and seating and a hammock! The kitchen is great, lots of room to cook and well laid out. The couches invite you to relax and the master bathroom with a jetted tub is fantastic. We will be returning soon....

We all had a great time in Truckee and your home was absolutely lovely, very comfortable, perfectly appointed, well stocked kitchen, and still kid-safe for a curious 2 year old. What a treat to walk right out the back door to the perfect sledding hill and a nice little snowshoe hike. Looking forward to next time!

Perfect for a friends/family ski getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this lovely home with our good friends (another family) over MLK weekend for our 2nd annual ski weekend. We have two 6-year olds and a 4-year old, and are just teaching them to ski. We made good use of the membership to the Donner Tahoe Recreation/Snowplay, and Ski Area -- perfect for our needs -- and just a short 15 minute drive from the house. This home has all the comforts of home: a modern, big kitchen with a big table for lively dinners, easy backyard access, widescreen TV, games, a fireplace and a big comfy living area. The house is very well-maintained, immaculate, and well-appointed -- we were all sad to leave! We loved that the house is close to downtown Truckee, and a bit shorter drive to/from the Bay Area. The owners were very accessible and easy to work with. We intend to come back again and would definitely recommend to other friends and family.
