About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 9-11), forest view


Construction on this home was completed 2011 in the upscale Winter Creek development. It's fully furnished with all new comfortable contemporary furniture. Looking out into a forest setting (other Winter Creek homes have neighbors behind them!). The large deck has a 6 person hot tub and lots of space to stretch out. Our gourmet kitchen is well stocked with every large and small appliance you'll need!

The driveway is flat and the streets around are well maintained, easy to come and go even in the snow!


The large open-spaced entry level, which includes living room with a gas fireplace, dining room and kitchen, has 24 foot high ceilings with a fantastic view of the majestic pine trees. The deck and hot tub are just off the living room. There is lots of privacy, we don't have any neighbors behind us!

The leather sofa and chairs create an intimate gathering space around the gas fireplace. The sofa is a queen sleeper with a good mattress.

The kitchen is well equipped with everything a gourmet chef may want! The dining table will easily seat 10-12, come relax, dine and enjoy this wonderful home! It's perfect for 2 families, 3-4 couples or a group of friends!

The large Master Bedroom on the entry level, has a king bed, walk-in closet, 2 sink master bath with a sunken tub and a shower with a Mr. Steam. The steam shower will go up to 120 degrees and offers a fantastic way to unwind after a day of skiing or hiking!


Besides the full bathroom with tub/shower, there are 2 bedrooms and a loft:

Bedroom 2 - The 'bunk room' has 2 sets of bunk beds, one with two twins and the other with a twin over a double. The kids will have a blast in here!

Bedroom 3 - Queen bed

Loft - is divided into two areas, one side has a cozy large couch and a large flat screen TV the other side has room for kids to play games or sprawl out in sleeping bags or you may choose to use our inflatable queen bed.

About Amy Wittenberg

We enjoy spending time with family and friends in this beautiful and comfortable home! Truckee is our quick get-away from our life in the Bay Area and we love how relaxing it is! We are avid skiers and snow enthusiasts but also enjoy all the wonders of nature, the gorgeous lakes and exciting activities that summer in Truckee offers!

Amy Wittenberg purchased this house in 2011

Why Amy Wittenberg chose Truckee

This development is fantastic! New homes, friendly neighbors and easy access to the ski areas, to Lake Tahoe and to Donner Lake. Even in snow storms the roads all around us are flat and cleared! It's a short 15 minute walk to quaint downtown Truckee with outstanding restaurants and shops.

Winter Creek has its own playground, a 2 minute walk from our home. The Truckee Regional Park enjoys a playground, skateboard park, frisbee golf, golf, summer concerts (Wednesday nights), rodeo, carnival and a farmer's market, ice skating rink (winter) and it's only a 5 minute walk away! You can also access a great walking/jogging trail along the Truckee River from the park. The town of Truckee booms with excitement every Thursday evening during the summer with a weekly street fair, and throughout the year there are many great festivals and fairs.

What makes this house unique

Everything you want is close by - skiing, hiking, swimming, shopping, grocery stores, restaurants, bars. If you want the nightlife Reno has to offer, it's only 30 minutes away!

But often we don't even want to go out.... the house is so comfortable, with a hot tub and steam shower you can have your own spa day right at home! The kitchen is well stocked and fun to cook in! Or cozy up on the loft and watch TV or movies!

Summer winter or anything in between - you will love Truckee for all it has to offer. The location of this home is great, easy to get to town and the wonderful shops and restaurants or to the beach or to hit the slopes. No worry about getting to us in the snow, we are on a flat street and it is cleaned and maintained even in a terrible storm!

Wonderful cabin close to downtown Truckee

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was perfect for two couples and a small child. The patio was great and we loved the hot tub! An upgraded kitchen made it easy to make meals. Amy was also very knowledgeable and made sure we had everything we needed.

Beautiful cabin, great access to town and outdoor activities, everything a big group would need!

  • 5 of 5

We went to Tahoe to celebrate a friend's birthday and we stayed in Amy's cabin. There were 11 of us, and it was more than comfortable for all of us. The bathrooms and bedrooms were beautiful and spacious. The hot tub was great after spending a day out in the cold. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook all of our meals. We'd all definitely stay here again!!

Comfort & Ease (Even in Blizzards!)

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at Amy's lovely house. It truly is the most comfortable accommodations I've stayed in throughout my many years going up to Tahoe. This year it was snowing when we arrived and did not stop for three days! Ponderosa Palisades is definitely the place you want to stay in such conditions ... no need to dig your car out or defrost the windows because of the covered garage, and no need to shovel the driveway because a snow plow takes care of that for you in the morning! Waking up every morning to the beautiful wintery views was also a huge plus. And, the large deck is a delightful and safe place for the kids to play and build snowmen. We skied at Northstar, which is very short, easy drive (even in the snow). There is nothing like returning to such a comfortable place after long days on the slopes. This year, we again enjoyed the all the family board and card games, and we made full use of the extremely well-equipped kitchen. Thank you again, Amy!

Amazing home!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I did a week long mountain bike trip in the Tahoe area and stayed at this amazing home! This open concept home was very well maintained, clean, comfortable and had everything we needed. Even though it was just the two of us this home could easily accommodate many more. The neighborhood is also very nice and the neighbors are very friendly. The only negative comment I would make is the king bed in the master bedroom is quite soft and although some people love a soft bed we prefer our bed to be a firm one. That being said we would love to come back to Truckee and we would definitely stay here again. Truckee itself is a quaint little town with many delicious restaurants to choose from, unique shops with welcoming staff and awesome mountain bike trails!
