EPIC VIEWS, LUXURY AND SERENITY ALL BACKING MILES OF NATIONAL FOREST

North Upper Truckee House Rental Photos and Description

Enjoy hiking, sledding & cross-country skiing right out your back door

This newly rebuilt luxury home sits adjacent to miles of National Forest with stunning views. It offers the warmth and tranquility you and your loved ones have been looking for. Enjoy the comforts of a romantic home where you can sit in front of the fire and just gaze for hours enjoying the epic views. There is 2200 square feet of living space with the living room opening onto a 25x25 square foot deck to enjoy your morning coffee or during the evening where you can sit and enjoy a glass of wine as you watch the sun setting over the mountains. The jacuzzi on the deck offers mood lights and music at your beck and call. Stairs lead down from the deck into a large fenced yard where you will find gates that take you into the National Forest. The Great Room features large windows where you can relax and enjoy the sun light, cozy up and read a good book or just sit and become mesmerized by the magnificent setting. These are the days that create memories which last a lifetime.

The full kitchen at Koru Lodge faces views to the front of the home, a dining table which seats 8 and a granite island which faces the great room and the pool table. There are two bedrooms upstairs on the main living floor with one bathroom. One bedroom has a California King bed with a private deck which faces West to the National Forest and has a LCD TV. The second bedroom has a queen size bed with a LCD TV. The loft is off the main floor living where you will be able to view the stars as you fall into a deep slumber in your cozy queen size bed. The bathroom on the main living area is next to the master bedroom and has a two person slate shower and a double sink. The second bathroom is downstairs down the hall from the inviting 3rd bedroom. This bedroom has a queen size bed with a LCD TV. The bathroom downstairs has access to the laundry room, lower deck and to the back yard. This bathroom has a shower/bathtub combo and a double sink.

Each bed is outfitted with new furnishings and 600 count sheets.

Outside the gates of this incredible home is miles and miles of exploring for you and your family. Only a one mile hike away is Seneca Pond and if you are up for more of an adventure you can hike to Angora Lake which takes 2-3 hours round trip. During the winter you can cross country ski, snow shoe or go snowmobiling by just stepping out your back door. Heavenly Ski Resort, the casinos and Sierra At Tahoe Ski Resort are all 15 minute drives. The home is only 8 minutes to the Y downtown shopping, Meyers restaurants, grocery store, golf courses and the Tahoe Airport.

If you must work, bring your laptop as we have wireless access.

We have sleds and snowshoes available for you to enjoy during the winter season.

There is a two car garage and the driveway can park a large recreational vehicle or a boat.

If you need concierge services or your kitchen stocked upon arrival please inquire when making your reservation

Beautifully designed and maintained home; Very spacious for our group of 8 adults

  • 5 of 5
Koru Lodge is a marvelous home that comfortably accommodates four couples. It was so spotlessly clean, comfortable, and thoughtfully appointed; that we decided to spend much of our time at the home itself. Cathy was welcoming, organized, and most helpful. She made it easy to access the home when we arrived and the home surprised us with one delight after another. We loved the spacious gourmet kitchen, which was perfect for group meal preparation and conversation. The small and large appliances were high-end, with abundant cookware, kitchenware, utensils, and special touches. The kitchen/living/dining area had a pool table, which was a lot of fun. Since the evenings were cool, even in summer, we got good use of the fireplace and the Jacuzzi. All of the beds were very comfortable, with nice bedding and pillows. The bedroom closets had ample room, so no one had to live out of a suitcase. The house and furnishings were attractive and appeared to be new. The setting is beautiful and the large deck was a great gathering place in the mornings and the evenings. The evenings provided clear skies with brilliantly shining stars. We would recommend the Koru Lodge to anyone and would love to vacation there again.

Great House!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this beautiful home over New Year's Eve. What a great experience! We arrived to a handwritten note, coffee, bubbly, and creamer. It was such a lovely touch, especially since we had forgotten coffee.

We have stayed in many rental properties before, but never before have we stayed at a home with such a stocked kitchen! Everything you need (including fantastic knives--something most rentals don't have) is there. We cooked most nights at the house, so the kitchen was well used!

This house was a little farther than we normally stay from town, but the distance was not a real problem. The casinos are about 20 minutes away and the mountain is about 15 minutes away.
The neighborhood is quiet and offers hiking right outside your door. The view is great and the house is very relaxing. We would definitely stay here again!

Great Winter Getaway - Look No Further

  • 5 of 5
When you arrive at Koru Lodge you will find a home where the owners have thought through everything you'll need for a comfortable stay. We rented during the Christmas Holiday, and found that we needed nothing but groceries...the house was ready for us, right down to the Christmas Tree!

The views from this home are spectacular...you look out at steep mountains right out of the back door. The area is beautiful for hiking. It's close to shopping, restaurants, casinos, etc, but when you're at the home, you feel like you are out in the woods.

The home was very clean and well-maintained. We had no "surprises" that sometimes occur when renting a home. We also found that the instructions for entry and use were clear. If you are looking for a four-bedroom rental in Tahoe, we highly recommend this one

Wonderful House

  • 5 of 5
Great house, great layout, recently updated/remodeled in every way, very comfortable beds. It edges forest land, with great snowshoeing and hiking right out of the back door. I also really enjoyed the location, which felt remote, yet only 20 minutes from the casinos in South Lake Tahoe. House manager was extremely responsive and the house was clean and well taken care of. Couldn't have hoped for a better house to rent for vacation.

Great home in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5
My family and I had the privilege of staying here for 3 nights. The house is located in a beautiful location with views of the mountains and forest. It is close to a grocery store which I found to be very important if you're planning on cooking. It is very well stocked with all the kitchen, bathroom and bedroom amenities you may need. The drive to Sierra or Heavenly resorts is under 30 minutes and sledding is walking distance with no crowds!
We would highly recommend this house and look forward to staying there again!

Amazing!!

  • 5 of 5
I am extemely picky when it comes to my vacation lodging. I had reservations at another house until I saw this house online and changed our plans. I am so happy I did. This house is just super nice and very comfortable. It really gives you that lodge feel. Nicely upgraded kitchen with all the supplies and utensils you would need for a large family. The beds were super comfortable. The bathrooms were beautiful with slate tile and multiple shower heads. My kids loved the loft and pool table. The house backs up to the National Forest where my kids played in the snow with the sleds provided by owners.

The house is in a very nice part of Lake Tahoe. The drive there from west California is beautiful. Although we chose to ski at Kirkwood, which was not a bad drive at all, the house is very close to Sierra Ski Resort and Heavenly.

The owners were great from the beginning. We did have a small issue with the fireplace and it was fixed immediately. Cathy has always been responsive with calls or emails.

The pics do not lie. If you are considering this property, do it! The only issue with my glowing review is I will have a harder time getting availability when we want to come back after everyone books it! Enjoy!
