Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: We are a family of 4 with two young boys and a friendly golden retriever who live for the outdoors. Myself, being born in the Philippines and my husband from Canada, we've always been worldly travelers making it our mission to visit a new place we've never been before each year.

Why the Owner Chose Truckee, CA, USA:
We are avid skiers and always dreamed of owning a mountain home to 'get away from it all,' but still be close enough to fun towns like Truckee and Squaw Valley so as to get the best of both worlds. After 18 months of searching, we found this perfect home.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Kibu's Cabin gives you the true mountainous feeling surrounded by redwoods with minimal exposure to neighboring cabins yet it's still close enough from great attractions. River Road is only used by local dog-friendly homeowners with dogs often come by to welcome all visitors.
