About Cainen Zugel
I grew up in the Seattle, WA area and found Truckee in 1997. The moment I came here, I knew this was my new home away from home. So I packed up and moved here in 1997 and left 5 years later to pursue flying helicopters. Since I left, I have always wanted to settle down in Truckee but work and travel made it impossible. Now my job is consistent enough that I can choose where I live and a schedule that allows me to live part-time in Truckee and Seattle. I fight fires in the summer and heli-ski in the winters.
Cainen Zugel purchased this Chalet in 2014
Why Cainen Zugel chose Truckee
I patiently waited 13 months for this property. I knew it was the house I wanted the moment I saw it. It is by far the best location in Truckee. You don't even need a car because the ski area shuttles, restaurants and shopping are all within a short walk. I spend 200+ days a year in hotels and I know how hard it can be to find good accommodations. I made sure this house has everything I look for when I travel. The bedroom even has a night stand with enough outlets for all your charging needs. Make yourself at home without the feeling of staying at somebody's house.
What makes this Chalet unique
This house features a new 5 person Catalina spa with patio. A 55'' flat screen in the living room and 42'' in the bedroom. Bluetooth sound bar that can connect to your smart phone, tablet or AUX cable. Keurig Coffee maker. Direct TV with High speed wireless internet (100 Mbps). Lake Tahoe, Truckee area parks pass (refundable deposit required).

Beautiful apartment, great location
The apartment is very well appointed and it’s obvious that the owner spent a lot of time making this truly feel like a cabin in the woods. It is located very close to a grocery store and many coffee shops / restaurants. Also very close to Donner Lake.
We would love to stay here again!
The apartment was very warm and cozy. We finally got some snow to play in the night before we left and that was great! The hosts are fantastic and thoughtful. Would definitely stay here again!
It is a really beautiful home in a great location.
Great place! Well equipped, clean, up-to-date.
Great getaway ski cabin! Don't think we'll ever go somewhere without a hot tub again!
As others have said, this place is amazing. We asked the owner for a difficult last minute accommodation & he was super responsive & reasonable. It is very conveniently located & filled with every amenity you can imagine (keurig coffee maker! steam basket! ginormous HE laundry! most comfy pull out sofa ever!)
Can't wait to come back!
What a wonderful place to stay in Truckee. We come to town about once a year and we usually stay at a hotel on the other side of downtown. Well this time they were full...and I'm glad they were. This place is as charming or better as it looks in the pictures. The neighborhood is residential which is just fine. It's a short drive/walk to Safeway. It's a $10 Uber to downtown each way. We couldn't ask for more. The living quarters has everything you could possibly need. The owners were in contact via text with us throughout our stay to make sure our stay was going well. The spa was nice after hiking all day. It was awesome to make breakfast there and eat out for the rest of our meals. Evening cocktails before going downtown was a great benefit too. We will be back for sure and we'd highly recommend you stay here. The place was spotless when we walked in. Even the coach had vacuum lines in it. Great attention to detail!
