Property description

State of the art home and vacation retreat on 5 private acres. Just 4 miles from downtown Truckee and quick access to Donner Lake & North Lake Tahoe with loads of fishing, mountain biking & hiking accessible from the property! Privacy, views, fun.

The home is a full vacation retreat with everything you can hope for:
- Beautiful views from the front of the house over an expansive meadow, with views in the direction of Northstar and Sugar Bowl / Donner mountain ranges
- Downstairs: Huge master bedroom with King bed, jacuzzi bath and gas fireplaces; another bedroom with two single beds
- Upstairs: Another large sitting/play area; large bunk room with 4 single beds and a TV; another large bedroom with queen bed and walk-in bathroom
- Separate apartment in barn: large 1 bedroom apartment with full kitchen, views, etc
- Firepit with multiple areas set up with teak outdoor lounge furniture
- Basketball net
- Swing set
- Huge grass yard for playing sports or enjoying the park-like setting in the midst of the trees
- Massive paved driveway and secluded road for riding bikes
- Paved bike path that connects to roads to Truckee a short distance away
- Multiple places to trail run; some are remote single track with fun exploring options, others are on paths off the road
- Hiking and mountain bike trails from the house
- Prosser Creek is a short walk with fly fishing, wading and swimming
- Horseback riding at an equestrian center 1/4 mile from house
- Prosser Reservoir (walking) and Bocca Reservoir (mountain bike or drive)
- Some of the best dirt biking in Tahoe is in the meadow directly across from the house

We are in the Bay Area when we're not in Tahoe, so we won't be able to interact with the guests in person unfortunately but love to communicate over phone and email.

20 minutes to Squaw + Alpine
7-8 minutes to Donner Lake
4-5 minutes to downtown Truckee
Multiple golf courses within minutes
12-15 minutes to Northstar
20-24 minutes to Kings Beach
30 minutes to Reno
Prosser Reservoir 20 minute walk from house
Bocca Reservoir 10 minutes
Prosser Pits Motocross 1/2 mile in front of house

The Neighborhood
We are ~1 mile off route 80 east of Truckee down a private road where there are just three houses with a meadow in front and forest behind. It is the perfect retreat for someone looking for incredibly easy access to the resorts, lakes and mountains with the feeling of a more peaceful and private vacation. Similar to many of the lakefront homes on Tahoe or Donner lakes, we are close to a highway and you can hear the road noise when you're outside in places (sometimes more than less depending on wind/traffic).

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: My wife and I have been life long travelers and this vacation home in Tahoe has been our dream. We've always wanted to combine our love with skiing, trail running, cycling and the lakes with a home that has open space, room to run, bbq and enjoy smores by the campfire. A camp with all the amenities. We hope you in enjoy as much as we do.

Why the Owner Chose Truckee, CA, USA:
We hope you enjoy your stay at our home. The property and surroundings are full of fun adventures to give you a chance to connect with the outdoors. It’s not all well marked and some of the trails and adventures are a bit off the path, but that’s what drew us to the home. We wanted a place with the amenities to relax but adventures and unknowns to help disconnect from the everyday race. We hope you and your party are able to take in the views, barbeque, and explore Tahoe. Some of the little things, like taking a walk down the quiet road in front of the home at sunset or having a glass of wine while the sun is going down near the swing set are our favorites. Our home hasn’t been rented many times so we are grateful for any feedback on things you especially like, or things we might have forgotten. We don’t plan to rent it often, so are trying to find the right mix between keeping it our family retreat and making it a great place for you to enjoy.
