The Owner purchased this house in 1984

Why The Owner chose Truckee

We have always desired to live by the Truckee River. The community here is small, rural, and quiet. We enjoy offering a vacation rental here so others can enjoy the beauty of the Truckee River. You are close to historic Town of Truckee, shopping & restaurants, ski resorts & golf courses, mountains, lakes & streams, and the many visitor attractions in the Tahoe-Truckee area yet feels worlds away from the crowds.

If you love the outdoors, this location is ideal. The river offers you year-round fly fishing, kayaking & river rafting, while nearby streams, lakes & reservoirs offer additional fishing opportunity, boating, watersports, kayaking, and hiking & biking. Lake Tahoe's famous ski resorts nearby. The changing seasons at this Tahoe location are remarkable offering vacationers year-round pleasure as well as quiet solitude.

Quiet, relaxing location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a very relaxing time and enjoyed our stay. The location on the river was awesome and great for fishing. Truckee was not too far for necessities. The home was clean and cozy with everything you need. Would definately return.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the nice review. We are glad you enjoyed our Truckee River vacation home. We are very fortunate to own and offer this 4-season vacation rental in such a beautiful & quiet location in the North Lake Tahoe area. The year round fly fishing in this section of the Truckee River is exceptional and challenging for both the novice and the experienced. We hope you can return again. Thanks from the owners!

Great spot on the Truckee

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of guys celebrating a bachelor party and were fortunate enough to stay at this great property for a weekend of fishing and golfing. A truly stunning view and great property a little off the beaten path. The house was clean and had all the amenities needed. The river had an abundance of wildlife and some great fishing just off the deck, a fantastic spot for an adventure. I highly recommend this property and hope to come back.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind words! We do think our riverfront rental offers an unique and ideal getaway for almost any occasion and we pride ourselves in offering our guests a well maintained home with all the conveniences of home to make their stay memorable. We cannot agree with you more on the outstanding scenic views this location offers and the excellent fly fishing opportunity our location here on the Truckee River offers. We are glad all had a great time. Thanks again and come back soon!

Beautiful and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We came here with another family and adults and kids ages (6-8) and loved it. The house is very clean and has everything you'd need, the owners were easy to work with and the views from the deck are spectacular. So much wildlife on the river -Beavers, snakes, deer, otters, deer but didn't catch any fish - but had fun trying. It's away from all of the busy-ness of Truckee and that made it relaxing, we were able to enjoy out doors by just walking out the door I highly recommend this place - we hope to come back.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review and comments! We are so glad we were able to offer you and your family a relaxing retreat on the river for your vacation. We do think our scenic location offers a great place to unwind and relax away from the hustle and bustle of town and provides a great outdoors adventure for the whole family. Thanks for sharing your experience and we hope to see you all again soon!

Still the Champion Location

  • 5 of 5

After staying at this place for the past 3 consecutive years, The Truckee River House is still the reigning champion of 'Truckee's Best Places to Lodge'. We were welcomed with a warm hearth and the same level of cleanliness. A few new perks surprised us this year including a new flat screen and small kitchen appliances. Although the snow was scarce during our visit, we weren't disappointed because the house is located in an area that offers a plethora of activities - like fishing. The warm weather and cool waters must have been the right formula for fishing because the Truckee River rewarded us with two Rainbow Trout to be rant and rave based on our novice fishing skills. It was another visit that bonded our families and created memories of a lifetime. Thank Diane & Duane for allowing us into your home to share these memories for years to come!

Awesome house-right on the river!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have stayed in this amazing cabin several times, and can't quite get enough of it! The house has 4 bedrooms and plenty of space to stretch out and relax. It also has a beautiful deck that wraps around 3/4 of the house, with a beautiful view of the river.

My husband fly-fishes, and raves about the wonderful location with great fishing right outside the back door.

We also love that the owners keep it stocked with plenty of firewood, and have it going for you when you arrive so you enter into a comfy/cozy home.

Diane & Duane are wonderful vacation rental owners, they respond quickly to emails and make the vacation rental experience easy. They are also great about sending your deposit back immediately. We just left yesterday, and I have already received an email saying that my deposit is in the mail.

We can't get enough of this wonderful home, and can't wait to return! Thank you Diane & Duane!
