About the property

Tree filtered light-filled 3 BR, 2 Ba, Sleeps up to 8

Let your imagination begin. Put your feet up and relax next to the fire. Or sit back on the large deck and take in the sounds of the Sierras. This cozy home invites your family and friends to enjoy the alpine air and experience some time nestled amongst the firs. The living room is spacious with vaulted cathedral ceilings. A massive wall of windows rises to the roof inviting tree-filtered natural light throughout the chalet.

The roomy kitchen includes an open view to the dining and living areas. Kids and friends can belly up to the breakfast bar on four old west style, leather-topped swivel stools. The large dining table offers the setting for memorable dinners over glasses of wine and laughter. Or on warm summer nights take advantage of the Weber BBQ and picnic on the deck. After dinner enjoy one of the board games on the soft carpet before the fire.

With nearly ½ acre, the gently sloping lot backs to a green belt for hiking, playing and exploring. The neighborhood offers even more:

• The Tahoe Donner golf course, equestrian center, hiking and biking trails, bocce ball and volleyball, and tennis courts.

• Year round heated pools, steam room, sauna, hot tubs / spas, and more at Trout Creek Recreation Center and Northwoods Clubhouse.

• A short drive to world-class all-season resorts like Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, Northstar, Sugarbowl and Royal Gorge.

• The Lodge Restaurant & Pub – relaxed bistro atmosphere with fine pub cuisine

• Pizza on the Hill

• The Snowplay Area for tubing and sledding on groomed runs, snowshoeing and cocoa and snacks.

• Easy access to downtown Truckee for antiquing, shopping, groceries, restaurants, cafes, pubs and more.

• And when it’s time to go home, you will already be on the west side of Truckee, well ahead of those caught up behind you in the choked traffic on Hwy 89.

1. Master Suite (entire 2nd floor) – Queen bed - handmade custom log bed. Many windows and views. Private bathroom. Loft area overlooking the living area and the tree canopy outside the picture windows.

Well stocked

  • 5 of 5

Two families stayed at this cozy place and we loved it. We were pleasantly surprised how well stocked it was. From board games to kitchen supplies and even plenty of firewood. The owners respond quickly by email or text when you have a question.

Just right

  • 5 of 5

What a sweet, comfortable home away from home for our family. A clean home, with comfy and cozy beds, well-appointed kitchen, plenty of fun games, and all of that good fresh Tahoe air. The owner made it so easy for us at every step, and we were happy to find ourselves so close to the amenities of the Trout Creek center, as well as the network of trails for summer hiking, biking, and equestrian use. So nice!

Everything about this home was great! We were 4 adults and 3 young kids and it was the perfect size and layout for us. The 3 kids shared the room with the bunk beds, which they loved!

We loved the real fireplace too and there was loads of pre-chopped wood available for us to get a good fire going each evening. Also behind the house is a slope just about steep enough for the kids to have some fun with the sleds in the snow. Great fun!

Location is also really good. We did the TahoeDonner downhill ski and cross country ski which are both about a 5 minute drive away. Also drove over to Squaw for some tubing and more skiing and that was only about a 20 minute drive.

We've been to this area before but this was definitely the best home we've stayed in and we will definitely be back again at some point!
