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 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 25 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.
