                                                                My wife and our 5 children have stayed here twice and intend on staying here more often. It's simple and very peaceful. It's in a great location that's easy to get in and out of. There's room in the back of the house for our children to explore and you're very close to the lake. We come here to get away from the normal distractions of life; I love that there's no cable TV. I love that it's near our favorite place to get treats & goodies: The Treat Box in Truckee. Everything you need is provided and Rhonda has done a great job of not only keeping the place clean, but also making improvements and updates. Thank you for sharing your home.

                                                                Great little lake house

                                                                Cute Cabin well stocked and comfortable.

                                                                The only reason this cute cabin does not get 5 stars is because it is not on the lake. Unfortunately the HOA beach is a bit of a walk if you are carrying paddle boards or other water craft and charges a rather steep fee per water craft. Our 3 SUP boards cost us $10 per day per board. Besides that we really loved this Cabin and had a ton of fun in Truckee.

                                                                Good value and roomy

                                                                This cabin feels homey and we enjoyed our stay. We have young kids and they liked taking the bikes across the street into the flat neighborhood to ride. It's a little far to walk to west beach if you bring a lot of stuff so we drove. Love that beach! The cabin itself is a little dark but clean and comfortable. We missed having a garage for the bikes but the price was right and gets 4 stars. Pleasant little deck in back under the trees.
