About Tod and Carrie Knudsen
We love our Tahoe/Truckee weekends both summer and winter. Minutes away from Northstar, Squaw, and Alpine makes this an ideal location for those who love the snow like we do. The warm summer days, and cool nights make sitting out on the deck, or around the firepit with friends and family in the backyard, our favorite time of day. If you love summer watersports like we do, you will enjoy the nearby reservoirs at Boca and Stampede. If you would rather be on Lake Tahoe, it is just a short 20 minute drive. If you are not opposed to a little further drive, Bullards Bar Reservoir is a great place to spend a summer day too.
Tod and Carrie Knudsen purchased this House in 2013
Why Tod and Carrie Knudsen chose Truckee
We choose Truckee because of the great location. Just three hours from the Bay Area, and minutes to our favorite ski resorts, make this an ideal place. There are a multitude of golf courses just minutes away, as well as a lively downtown area with great restaurants, shops, and an art gallery. During the summer there are concerts in the park, and a street fair on Wednesday and Thursday nights, respectively. We have found it to be a great place for a quick get-away, or a longer stay.
What makes this House unique
We spend a lot of time at the home, and our goal was to make it an inviting, comfortable place to get away from our busy lives in the Bay Area. We wanted it to be bright, open, warm and inviting which was not what we had found in many of the Tahoe rentals we had stayed in. We have furnished it with high quality and very comfortable furniture and beds. The home was custom built and recently remodeled. The minute we saw it, we knew it was the right place and something we would never be able to find again. We know you will enjoy the home as much as we do.

Well loved home
You can tell that this home is well loved. The owners obviously put a lot of the heart into the home. Kitchen is well stocked. Layout was great for our large group. Would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a getaway with a large group.
Great cabin for a fall Tahoe trip!
Tod and Carrie's cabin worked super well for my group of 15 friends. The space was comfortable and accommodating; everyone had a place to sleep, cook, eat, and hang out. The hot tub was delightful. The location also put us ~30 mins away from some good hiking and bouldering spots. We were originally supposed to rent this cabin in June for Tough Mudder, but the event location was changed last minute; Tod and Carrie were super cooperative and helped us work out an "exchange weekend".
We were three families and really enjoyed the spacious cabin. The place is updated and nicely arranged. Beautiful furniture and the kitchen was probably the most well stocked of all the cabins we stayed at. There were 2 crock pots, skewers for s'mores and anything you can think of. The back yard was gigantic. We really enjoyed the fire pit. Tod and Carrie were super responsive. The loft area is in its own separate area above the kitchen so almost like a separate room. We could have fit another family with plenty of space. The cabin is also really close to everything. 15 min to Northstar and 20min to Kings Beach. Would definitely stay here again.
The house met and exceeded our expectations, group had a great time. Thank you!
Spacious, modern, light-filled home perfect for large groups
Was the perfect summer house for our group of 10. From the gorgeous floor-to-ceiling windows, multiple patios, fire pit and modern kitchen, we could not have been happier with our stay. The house was also conveniently located 20 minutes away from Kings Beach and a local Safeway.
Tod and Carrie were very responsive and easy to work with. We look forward to staying again!
Beautiful Home in a Great Location
This house worked out great for our yearly Tahoe family gathering! There is tons of space for everyone to spread out! The kitchen is fully loaded with plenty of dishes and silverware for a large group. Thanks for providing your wonderful house for us to enjoy!
Thank you so much for your review Brian. We always appreciate the feedback, and are glad you enjoyed your stay in Truckee and our home! We appreciate you taking such good care of the house. Enjoy the rest of your summer!
