About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

Our Winter Creek Home was newly built in 2006. It is situated within the Winter Creek subdivision with similar homes priced at over half a million dollars.

(3-6 night specials - see NOTES under the RATES tab VRBO calculator does NOT apply this discount. Discount will be applied by the manager at time of booking/contract acceptance.)

Our home is close to everything...

Old Town Truckee (Truckee Diner) 0.9 miles

Skate Park 0.3 miles

Fifty-Fifty Brewery 0.6 miles

Northstar Ski Resort 6 minutes

Kings Beach 15 minutes

Three Championship Golf Courses 10 minutes

Two Mountain Biking Resorts 10 minutes

Squaw Valley Ski Resort 15 minutes

Every modern convenience in this 1600 sf home is new or nearly new. You won't have to worry about renting a run-down older home (with that old house smell--I think they call it 'Rustic').

We were vacation renters once, and we feel it's unfair to gouge renters. So, we have priced this home (and the cleaning fee) very reasonably. You get a nearly new house in a quiet and beautiful neighborhood for the same price as a single bedroom condo else where.

About this home...

Downstairs: Family Room, Kitchen, Half Bath, Two-car Garage, Rear Deck, Front Deck

Upstairs: Master Suite with Balcony, 3 Bedrooms Total, 2 Full Baths, Laundry Room

Your accommodations...

Master Bedroom - Queen, Bedroom set.

Bedroom 2 - Queen, Bedroom set.

Bedroom 3 - Bunk with Double Bed Bottom and Twin Upper

When comparing...our house (not a condo or townhouse) is very new; contents are newer; kitchen is fully stocked; it gets less snow on flat ground (no hills to climb like Tahoe Donner and most areas in Tahoe City and Carnelian) so it's easier/safer to get to; and it is beautiful inside and out. We are located on Winter Creek Loop in Truckee. If you look for other VRBO houses in Winter Creek, you will see that they are going for $350-$425/night. We realize we are A LOT lower cost than the others.

Thank you for looking, but please book soon as our calendar is filling up quickly. Please email or call for questions. We would be happy to talk to you. Sorry no pets please.

Why Sonya E.J. Wong chose Lake Tahoe North Shore CA

Everyone loves the Tahoe/Truckee area. We are firm believers of 'You come up to Tahoe for the Winter, but you stay for the Summer.'

What makes this house unique

This house is close to everything. Visit the Truckee Regional park across the street and use the walking/biking trail situated along the Truckee River. Ski Squaw, Northstar, and Sugarbowl...all 5-15 mins away.

Helpful votes:3/3.

Just did a 2 night stay at this property. Let me just say 5* is not enough for this place. As stated in add, very clean and comfortable. Went with 2 other couples and everyone was so pleased, close to shops, the lake and any other adventure you could come up with. We Kayaked and paddleboarding, house with plenty of room in garage to stow our stuff. Couldn't be happier with this location, will keep it on the list of go to rentals.

Convenient place to stay in Truckee

  • 5 of 5

The unit is exactly as shown. Sonja was super easy to work with and very accommodating in terms of letting us arrive early or depart late due to a schedule change. Convenient location for anything in/around Truckee.

The house is great for 6-7 people. It's nice, clean and kept up. The location is just outside of Truckee, and close to Northstar. Our kids had a great time playing on the play structure across the street. Also, the owner is NICE! She was very easy to work and responsive. We are coming back to this house again!!!

Very nice cabin -- lots of garage space!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of roadie and mtn bike cyclists were nice and comfortable in this cabin -- very close to Sawtooth Trailhead in fact! The cabin is as advertised -- convenient washer/dryer, porch sitting, quiet neighborhood, fully-equipped kitchen, was clean. An added bonus was having the entire 2-car garage available for storing our kayaks and secure parking for our bikes -- invaluable! We will definitely return.

Donner Lake
Car: recommended

There are many activities all year round. Be sure to pick up guide information at the California Welcome Center on Donner Pass Road in old town.

Donner Lake is 3.9 miles away, good for paddle boarding, skiing, kayaking and fishing. Speed limit is 30mph. Day use fee of $10 for water activities.

Truckee Legacy trail is a 5 minute walk from house. A nice walking /biking path that goes about 5 miles along the Truckee river.

Truckee River winery is a 15 minute walk from house or a 2 minute drive. 50/50 Brewery is a 1 minute drive. Good craft beer and food.

Downtown Truckee is a mile away with many shops and restaurants.

Morgans is one of our favorites. Small, but excellent fresh fish daily. Ceviche, Lobster Roll and Lobster Reuben are delicious. Coffeebar bakery is has really rich pastries and a great selection of gluten-free desserts.
