Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


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.

Cozy, warm and perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was lovely and the online description was accurate. We arrived very late and the heat was on and the place was cozy. Very comfortable for 4 of us. The sleds were super fun too! Would absolutely stay there again and highly recommend to others!

Comfortable cabin with plenty of amenities

  • 5 of 5

The Glacier View Chalet was exactly as described. We happened to be there in between snow storms and the cabin had enough amenities for the three kids (2, 4, and 6) to be entertained the whole time without us having to drive anywhere else. Between the board games, puzzles, and sleds, there was plenty to do both inside and outside. The bunk beds were a big hit! The kitchen came with all the basics and there were plenty of spices and condiments for cooking any meal. The wood burning fire place provided a warm, cozy atmosphere. I would definitely stay at this chalet again!

Well stocked

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.
