Car: Necessary

The town of Truckee has numerous historical sites. The town was built during the construction of the United States Transcontinental Rail Road. The original train station and many of the late 19th century buildings are still present in the downtown area. There is a museum near Donner Lake that features the struggles of the Donner Party traveling out west in a wagon train. There are also several locations in the area where Donner Party members camped.

During summer, there is a festival every Thursday night in downtown Truckee. Transportation to downtown is provided from the Tahoe Donner Trout Creek Recreation Center since this evening is very popular with Truckee visitors and residents.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: The home was built and purchased by our family in 2002. We enjoy staying at our house in Truckee both with family and friends. Our extended family now has 6 children ages 2 to 12. It has been a wonderful home for both us as adults and for our children.

Why the Owner Chose Truckee, CA, USA:
The Property is located on a green belt with easy access to the Tahoe Donner system of hiking and biking trails. Our children love to explore with us in the green belt area that includes a creek with beaver dams. We are located just a block away from the Tahoe Donner Adventure Center, and 1 mile or less to Trout Creek Recreation Center and the Downhill ski area.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The floor plan is particularly nice for families with children. There is a TV and DVD player both upstairs and downstairs. We didn't know how popular our Ping Pong table would be until we purchased it for our loft several years ago. There are some toys for young children. There is a book exchange for adults.
