Welcome to Aspen Ridge Chalet in the heart of the sierra. Located in a quiet and very convenient neighborhood in Truckee. Located just two blocks north of Donner Pass Road, between Mountain Hardware and Safeway. Excellent access and location year round, with snow removal provided during the winter months.

Aspen Ridge Chalet is a 2 bedroom 11/2 baths, fully furnished to create a cozy mountain feel. The interior has maple hardwood floors through out the house. The bathroom has tile floor, and a beautiful tiled bath/shower. Completely furnished with all your bathroom amenities, shampoo, etc. with luxury bath and spa towels.

The bedrooms have very comfortable queen beds with down comforters, soft sheets and lots of pillows. Also in the bedrooms is cable tv. The living room has a sony flat screen plasma tv with cable, DVD and CD player. It is a nice cozy setting for watching a good movie. The kitchen is completely and fully furnished includes dishwasher. There is also a washer and dryer in the laundry room right off the kitchen.

On the deck you will find your own private Hot Springs Spa (hot tub) with many wonderful jets. It is designed to accommodate five people, which makes it very spacious and comfortable for two or four. The temperature is set at 102 degrees and can be adjusted to your comfort. It is always immaculate and professionally cleaned. Also on the large deck you will find lots of cushioned furniture including a 2 seat swing with an awning, a nice outdoor dining table, with an umbrella and a propane heater for outdoor dinning. There is also a natural gas bar-b-que for year round grilling. Even in a snow storm! Check out the photos. There is a seasonal creek that runs in the spring time and the yard is nicely landscaped in the summer months. There are a variety of nice restaurants within a five minute walk and the market is about a two minute walk from the property.

Historic downtown Truckee is a five minute drive or 15 minute walk, with some of my favorite shops and restaurants, such as Pianeta, Pacific Crest, and Moody's.

There are many year round activities here in the Sierra's. Winter is truly a wonderland, with many ski resorts just a 15 minute drive, Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows and Northstar. There is also an outdoor skating rink at our regional park in town, all lit up for night skating. On Donner Summit, you will find Sugar Bowl Ski Resort, with a european feel and Boreal Ridge ski area.

Also available, are many areas for cross country skiing and snow shoeing. In the springtime, hiking and biking are great for getting out and seeing all the spring flowers in bloom and lots of birds. You will be just fourteen miles north of Lake Tahoe and just five minutes from Donner Lake. Water sports include fishing in the Truckee River and many other lakes in the area. There are a lot of activities offered here year round or if you prefer to just relax for a few days, this is definitely the place. Aspen Ridge Chalet is your home away from home! I promise you a warm and welcoming time. You will feel like family by the time you leave.

Great House

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is very clean and fully outfitted. The owner, Denise, is responsive and friendly. It is in a super location.

This was our first time in Tahoe so we were nervous. But no need to worry. When the snow started and traffic got terrible, it was SO convenient to be able to walk to Safeway and several restaurants. It was also a short drive to skiing at Tahoe Donner. Such a cozy and cute home. Very highly recommended!

Great location, fabulous amenities, conveniently located for golfers, cyclists, anglers, - Cute and clean. Has everything you'll need including barbecue, laundry, hammock, hot tub, etc. Been coming here for over 5 years now. Owner is flexible, house is immaculate, and neighborhood is great. Easy walk to Safeway, downtown Truckee, and quick drive (less than 20 minutes) to North Shore/Incline village. Great property for all 4 seasons- and we've stayed during each one of them we love the place so much. Less than 3 hours from SF:-)

Exciting times at the aspen chalet

  • 5 of 5

The aspen chalet is the perfect location for either a quiet, peaceful, meditative fresh air experience in the pines or for days filled with different summer outdoor activities from hiking to biking, swimming in Donner Lake, walking or browsing through boutiques. Located in Truckee, the area offers historical architecture and a small town feeling and of course many great eateries all within walking distance. The aspen chalet is the perfect retreat after an active day in the area. The chalet offers relaxing hours on the expansive back patio under the pines in a hot tub or enjoying breakfast or dinner listening to nature. What a delightful retreat from the city life! And if one wants to stay current, there is wi-fi and tv ( we watched the olympics). Walking distance to grocery store and an awesome hardware store. It's also very close to the breathtaking Lake Tahoe. We had a great time!!

Relaxing summer weekend in Truckee

  • 5 of 5

We were in the Tahoe area for a wedding and wanted to have a place that would fit two couples that was also close to Downtown Truckee. The Aspen Ridge Chalet was perfectly what we were looking for. It it steps from the Safeway store and a short drive to downtown. The property was clean and well appointed and we very much appreciated the availability of the hot tub after we got back from the wedding. We would happily rent the property again
