About Riaz Finnemore

We are avid skiers, hikers, bikers, paddlers, and fly fishers. We love escaping from the city to our home in the mountains to enjoy some peace and quiet and the great outdoors. We invite you to stay at our place and we will try and provide you with everything you need to have a great vacation!

Riaz Finnemore purchased this house in 2002

Why Riaz Finnemore chose Truckee

We spotted this hidden gem of a house while fly fishing the Truckee river. It's in a great location with easy access from the bay area or the Reno airport. The neighborhood is small, secluded and quiet, and right outside the door we enjoy nature and all of our favorite activities - no car required!

What makes this house unique

Aside from the obvious benefit of having the Truckee River right in our back yard, there is a really nice fire road just 100 yards from our front door which you can walk, run, bike, and sometimes even cross country ski! It goes along the river for a few miles and provides access to different spots on the river as well as some great views! We also have Boca Reservoir just a couple miles up the road which has boating, fishing, swimming, camping, biking, etc. If you are into biking, there are lots of good roads and mountain bike trails right outside the door. Paddlers tend to put in near our house because a couple miles down stream are the best rapids on the Truckee. Fishing is also best on our section of the river as we benefit from additional water from Boca Reservoir and other feeder rivers. If you want to be the first one or last one on the river, nothing beats staying on the river! If you enjoy skiing then you will enjoy missing all the traffic going to the Lake as we have the reverse commute, and we are also closer to I80 when you want to head home! If you enjoy quiet and nature then this is the place, there is plenty of wildlife just outside the door.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our stay at your Truckee River House was great. Very different from our usual family vacation (we usually go to a lake). There is more than enough

to keep any family entertained. The pool table was a big success and the large area to play family games was also great. Lots of walks, watching

deer and other little creatures. We also did the river rafting and a tour of the Tahoe area. The house was more than accommodating for 12 people and we enjoyed the patio and outside area. Would be a great place in the winter also. Thanks again for the use for your home.

Remarkabke Lake Tahe Summer Trip

  • 5 of 5
This is an unforgetable trip for me and my wife who hosted a college reunion vacation trip for 4 couples known one another from college since 1975. Two couples from Taiwan, one from DC, and we are from San Jose. All the other 3 couples were coming to San Jose to join and celebrate with us for our son's wedding. We took one week vacation after this wedding event.

We stayed in this rental property for 4 nights. It was a fantastic experieince. The property is located in a very beautiful and quite area. The weather is fanstastic. The property is maintained in an excellent conidtition and even better than it was described in the website. We beleive the owner is a a very generous guy who is willing to shrea the best to his guests. All the beds are in high quality condition and are very comfortable for sleep. The location is very convenient for us to visit either donner lake, lake Tahoe- Emerald Bay, Beaches, or Reno casinos. The price is very reasonable and the owner is very responsive to any questions. We all enjoyed a very relaxed vacation. We highly recommend this propoerty to other people and may come back again in the near future.
Thank you, the generous owner of the rental property.

Beautiful Scenery

  • 5 of 5
My family went to this beautiful home the first week of summer holidays from school and we had planned so many wonderful activities and this home was perfect for us to make it possible for us to do it all. We went fly fishing, swimming in the refreshing waters, rock climbing, eating delicious meals in the little village of Truckee, and more.

In the evenings, we relaxed, sat by the fire, and watched movies, and woke up in the morning with the sounds of babbling brook of Truckee River.

If you have young children my age, this is a perfect place to stay at.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the wonderful review! There are lots of great places to rock climb nearby, with all levels of difficulty for beginners to experts. My kids learned to climb on the granite above Donner Lake which not only offers many routes, but also has beautiful views of the lake and mountains. We are very fortunate to have this area just 15 minutes from the house.

Great Time had by all

  • 5 of 5
Great time had by all our party. House was perfect for all our needs. Enough room for everyone and the kids loved the down stairs (pool table and big screen TV). House was close to all our day trips and enjoyed coming back and relaxing on that beautiful deck overlooking the river and mountains. Were already planning a 2nd trip. Thank You Riaz for opening up this beautiful home for us to enjoy.

Excellent Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
My family & I had a wonderful 4 nights at this cabin. During the day My Mom & Sister would go shopping in near by Truckee while my Dad, Brother & I were hiking & fishing. My brother caught an 18 inch German Brown trout about 100 yards down stream from the cabin. It made everything I caught look like a sardine.
At night we just relaxed in the gazebo overlooking the river or playing pool. There was plenty of room for everyone to stretch & hang out.
Big screen HD TV's, comfy beds & couches, lightning fast Wifi. What more can you ask for?

Owner's Response: Sounds like good times, that's a nice size brown trout! I've caught fish as big as 20", but I've seen them go 2 feet and bigger. The town of Truckee keeps getting better, and they have big plans to make it even better, preserving the charming historical old town feel. This year I went to the 4th of July parade and must say it was really good! Thanks for the great review, hope you visit again!

Beautiful and modern cabin with an amazing view

  • 5 of 5
This house is as beautiful as it appears in pictures, and the view from the living room is even better. Everything about our stay was impeccable.

The downstairs area was great for us all to lounge around, drink, and play pool. Like a private bar. The upstairs was great for cooking, relaxing by the fireplace, and getting a solid night's rest.

The owner was a pleasure to work with.

We would certainly stay here again next time we're in Tahoe.

Owner's Response: Thanks! The downstairs bar / pool room / living room has the same great views of the river and mountains as the upstairs, and is set up with multiple areas to lounge, relax, play games, watch movies on a big screen tv, or listen to music. A wireless music system will be installed soon (both upstairs & downstairs) so that you can play your own tunes from your wireless device. I will also be adding an MP3 alarm clock in each bedroom so you can charge your device and wake up to your own music. Keep checking back for more improvements big and small!
