Great family home close to major skiing areas

  • 5 of 5

Wonderfully equipped house for a family or a small group (fits 6-8 comphortably) with lots of light, nice beds and a well-prepared kitchen. You can ski (Squaw, Northstar, Sugar Bawl), hike, golf, run, bike (and this year - almost all of it in the same vacation!:). Truckee is just a 10min drive away with good stores and restaurants (we llove Moody’s). Thank you, Anne-Marie and Mark, for sharing your home with us this Holidays season! It really feels like home away from home :) We would love to come back!!!

  • 5 of 5

Owners were easy to get a hold of to answer any questions, making the transaction very smooth. The cabin was great! It was clean and well maintained. The cabin was spacious and had all the usual anenities of home (high speed internet, cable tv, apple tv, etc.). We were up there after Tahoe was hit with multiple snow storms so everything was covered in feet if snow. Driveway was cleared prior to our arrival. Definitely putting this cabin on our list for future Tahoe trips.

We had a wonderful weekend in this beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful family weekend with four adults and 3 kids under age 3 and found this beautiful, clean and large home to be perfect. We loved the openness of the floor plan so we could always keep an eye on the kids. And there was plenty of room for everyone to sleep. Thanks so much for a wonderful stay. We would do it again!
