Our old Railroad Bunkhouse (circa 1870s) in historic downtown Truckee is still a work in progress.
Downstairs is the Huddle-Up/sleeper studio; quaint and cozy. There are two double beds; a Murphy bed and the 'Huddle up' (named by our granddaughter), both with fresh linens, and down comforters. The full bathroom has an antique footed tub with shower.
The kitchenette is perfect for simple fare. A coffee pot, microwave, toaster oven and refrigerator (no stove) complete this galley-type kitchen. TV, DVD/VCR, WiFi. Parking and snow removal provided.
The location is excellent for those who are looking to enjoy the shops, art studios, wine tasting and restaurants in historic downtown Truckee. We are located in the old Brickelltown neighborhood, across from the railroad, just a 3-minute walk to Commercial Row and the AMTRAK station. Nordic and downhill ski resorts including Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, Northstar, Tahoe Donner, Donner Ski Ranch, Boreal and Sugar Bowl are a short drive. Donner Lake, the Truckee River, Lake Tahoe and the Tahoe National Forest offer abundant recreation alternatives in close proximity.
We have lived here for over 30 years, on site, upstairs. If you have any questions please ask us. We look forward to your inquiries. Val and Buff/ Railroad Bunkhouse/The Huddle Up

Val works in health care, Buffalo is a carpenter, designer and great cook. We've lived in this home since 1983. It is the never-ending work in progress.
Living in downtown Truckee has been wonderful. The heart of the town, the history, the community all combine to make this a great place to call home.
We have the best neighbors ever and can walk anywhere we need to be. The town has grown around us but we still feel the comfort of a tight knit, warm community. Truckee is unique in many ways and there are still areas unexplored.
I rented Val's studio for one month in the summer while I completed an internship at the local hospital. The unit perfectly met my needs. Val was friendly, kind, warm, helpful, and flexible. The unit had everything I needed for my stay and the kitchenette was well stocked. I felt right at home right from the start. It was great to be downtown near all the restaurants and shops, and it was only a short drive to Donner Lake. The train tracks run parallel to downtown and you do hear the trains as they go by, but it seemed more romantic than a bother. I loved it!
My friend and I had only 1.5 days to explore Lake Tahoe. We wanted to do some hiking and kayaking, but also have a fun night in town. This unit is in a good location to easily check out the beaches and slopes in North Lake or Tahoe City, while offering the more cozy feeling of the town of Truckee. The car traffic on the road immediately in front of the unit can help lull you to sleep, while the trains on the tracks just a lane over provide the soundtrack for a stay in a mountainside town. The unit is well represented in the pictures, clean and comfortable, though a little dimmer without the camera flash. The owners are incredibly flexible and kind, and helpful with their knowledge of the area.
This property doesn't look like much from the outside but it delivers on the inside. It is cozy, comfortable and well appointed. The hosts are friendly, welcoming and willing to assist in any way possible to make your stay enjoyable. The location is excellent for enjoying downtown without having to drive.
Location is excellent. Easy walk to downtown shops and restaurants. The place is cozy, clean and the owner is nice and welcoming.
We stayed here in March of 2009 and again in March of 2010; two weeks each time. The unit is small,
but is very nice, clean, comfortable and well equipped. The location is fabulous - a few minutes walk to all the restaurants and stores in downtown Truckee; a short drive to Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, Sugar Bowl, North Star, and several cross country ski areas. Easy parking, and when it snowed at night the car was cleaned off and ready to go in the morning.
But the best thing about this property is the wonderful owners, who live above the unit. They are very helpful, hospitable and generous. They have become our good friends.
The description was accurate regarding the location , photos , cleaniness etc. We were very comfortable there.. I would recommend this place to family and friends.. We walked to downtown Truckee for breakfast lunch and dinner. We also did a lot of window shopping and buying a few thngs. We had a very nice size fridge so we were able to buy what we needed to have snacks or light meals.. Thanks Buffalo & Val.
