We enjoy spending time with family and friends in this beautiful and comfortable home! Truckee is our quick get-away from our life in the Bay Area and we love how relaxing it is! We are avid skiers and snow enthusiasts but also enjoy all the wonders of nature, the gorgeous lakes and exciting activities that summer in Truckee offers!

Amy Wittenberg purchased this house in 2011

This development is fantastic! New homes, friendly neighbors and easy access to the ski areas, to Lake Tahoe and to Donner Lake. Even in snow storms the roads all around us are flat and cleared! It's a short 15 minute walk to quaint downtown Truckee with outstanding restaurants and shops.

The Truckee Regional Park enjoys a playground, skateboard park, frisbee golf, golf, summer concerts (Wednesday nights), rodeo, carnival and a farmer's market, ice skating rink (winter) and it's only a 5 minute walk away! You can also access a great walking/jogging trail along the Truckee River from the park. The town of Truckee booms with excitement every Thursday evening during the summer with a weekly street fair, and throughout the year there are many great festivals and fairs.

Everything you want is close by - skiing, hiking, swimming, shopping, grocery stores, restaurants, bars. If you want the nightlife Reno has to offer, it's only 30 minutes away!

But often we don't even want to go out.... the house is so comfortable, with a hot tub and steam shower you can have your own spa day right at home! The kitchen is well stocked and fun to cook in! Or cozy up on the loft and watch TV or movies!

Wonderful weekend away!

  • 5 of 5
Just got back from a very nice weekend at this home! Everything was clean, quite new, and just as advertised / described. We had two families, each with children, and the home was spacious and comfortable. The kids loved the hot tub, and being so close to Truckee is a definite plus!

We would stay here again and would recommend this home to families traveling to Tahoe with children! Thanks for a great weekend!!

Lovely Weekend Home

  • 4 of 5
Everything was lovely! Easy to access, beautiful furnishings, and plenty of room! The only thing short of making it perfect? We could not figure out the Wi-Fi. We called the owners but they couldn't figure it out either. We probably would've struggled with it more, but I didn't want to waste anymore of our precious weekend. (Sidebar: I was perfectly happy without it, but my guests were very disappointed).
The downtown Truckee area was too cute!

The Safeway nearby couldn't seem to keep food on the shelves! So if you plan to cook while you're up here, stop by somewhere in Sacramento first!

Overall, the experience was lovely, and if they can figure out the Wi-Fi situation, I will return for sure!

Perfect for our family!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay at this cabin. For having a newborn baby and a 2 year old, we were hesitant to travel to Tahoe with the kids, but staying in this cabin worked out great. Plenty of space, even kid friendly with an enclosed balcony outside and the stairs inside were carpeted and not too scary for my 2 year old. Working with the owner was awesome. She was extremely friendly, very responsive to questions we had, and also gave great recommendations for things to do and places to eat! The cabin was very clean, well maintained, with great decor! It was conveniently located to down town Truckee which is a fun town & Northstar which we went to for the Village activities which this time of year was Oktoberfest! I would highly recommend this cabin and to work with the owner again!

Beautiful home convenient to Northstar and downtown Truckee!

  • 5 of 5
We had a great stay at this home in Winter Creek! Beautiful updated kitchen, a large deck with hot tub and grill, in a quiet neighborhood. The owners were so nice in all of their communications, and have many amenities with clear instructions for anything that could be confusing. I will definitely stay here again for my next Tahoe/Truckee trip!

Great house, great location

  • 5 of 5
Wonderful rental!

The house was large enough for a party of three couples to have plenty of space. The kitchen is well sized, modern and sufficiently equipped, which was nice because we prepared all our meals at home. The location is very convenient for all of the major north Tahoe ski resorts, close to downtown Truckee for shopping, and just a short drive from the shore of Lake Tahoe (Kings Beach).

We all loved that there was no TV in the living room, which encouraged "no screen" socialization and lots of fun games. The hot tub was a welcome treat after my first day of skiing since 2007.

I highly recommend this VRBO.
