Couldn't have asked for more!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! With 6 adults and 6 kids, it was the perfect size house with all the amenities we needed to relax, socialize and keep the kids entertained when we weren't on the slopes. The house was extremely clean and up to date - the kitchen had everything we needed to cook breakfast and dinners, the beds were comfortable and warm (lovely touch to already have an added blanked under the quilt!), and the instruction binder made using the electronics, hot tub, etc. very easy.

Hoping to come back in the summer to enjoy the deck and firepit!

Cozy Winter Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We booked the house over the winter holiday for a family getaway. The house was outstanding and a perfect home base for winter activities. Clean, well kept and ample space for the family to relax.

We have rented a lot of properties in the Truckee area and this is by far one of our favorites! The home easily and comfortably fit three families. Kids and adults had plenty of room to spread out, relax, play games over the long weekend. The decor is stunning and the kitchen is well stocked. And the covered hot tub is a dream after a long day of fun in the snow! The location is super convenient for Sugar Bowl/Royal Gorge and popping in and out of downtown Truckee. We were there in winter, but this house would be equally suited for summer fun. Thank you for such a comfortable stay!

Truckee is a place rich in history with a quaint downtown that hosts charming shops and superb restaurants set in authentic historic buildings. There are so many activities to interest everyone from snow fun in the Winter to hiking, golf, rafting, mountain biking and horse riding in the Summer months. And don't forget the stunning Donner Lake, just minutes from our home with a host of water sports available. We are also about twenty minutes from Lake Tahoe.
