About Liz Scanlon

I'm Liz, I'm a busy mom with two kids but we love coming up to Truckee in winter and summer. Truckee is a great town with awesome people, shopping and restaurants and a great low key vibe.

Liz Scanlon purchased this house in 2008

Why Liz Scanlon chose Truckee

We love the Lake Tahoe area and have always loved the charming town of Truckee. The house is so close to downtown that you really feel like you are on vacation even if it's just for the weekend. Centrally located and a quick drive to river rafting, skiing, hiking, mountain biking, Donner Lake, Lake Tahoe.

What makes this house unique

walk to great stores, bars and restaurants, river view, soak in the hot tub. Ten minutes to great skiing at Squaw Valley, Northstar and Alpine Meadows.

Perfect Tahoe Spot!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this beautiful home many times. We keep coming back for the perfect location in downtown Truckee. Truckee is such a gem! Our kids (14 & 10) love walking into town to check out the general store and we love being steps away from great food, drink and shopping after a long day skiing or hiking. The home itself is incredibly comfortable and well appointed with everything you could want: cozy wood burning stove, lovely furnishings, plenty of towels and nice quality bedding, sleds, etc. etc. We'll be back!

family vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family just spent an extended weekend at this great house. Lots of bedrooms and bathrooms for everyone. Kitchen was fully equipped and there were lots of towels. My grandchildren especially enjoyed playing and floating in the Truckee River which is right below the house, with stairs going all the way down. It was great to sit on the deck and be able to watch them. They enjoyed warming up in the hot tub afterwards. If you are there on a Thursday night, be sure to walk into town and be a part of "Truckee Thursdays". Food, music, and lots of craft booths. We spent a day at Lake Tahoe and a day at Donner Lake. North shore Lake Tahoe is only 20 minutes away. We hope to return soon.

Great House, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this very convenient home. There were 3 families and plenty of space. The river is right in the backyard and the walk to downtown Truckee makes for a nice, evening stroll with the kids (or if you are without kids plenty of bars and restaurants). Easy drive to the Lake or ski resorts (we were there in summer so didn't ski) and easy to get to from the hwy. Definitely recommend!

Amazing Place for a group

  • 5 of 5

In 2003, I thru-hiked the PCT. In 2013, a bunch of hikers I met along the trail and I decided we needed to get together for a reunion, somewhere near the trail. After months of deliberation and searching, we found this gem on the Trukee River. The house is located close enough to town that we could walk to whatever we needed, and close enough to the trail that we were able to take some day trips for hikes, as well as take a fun rafting trip down the river. It was no problem to step out the door for a quick run, and going into South Lake and Tahoe City to visit friends was easily accessible. The house easily accommodated all of us in beds, and we were pleasantly surprised to find baby monitors and toys for kids, as some of us have grown families since our hike 10 years ago. The hot tub and table out back provided an awesome backdrop for merrymaking and memories. Thank you so much for sharing your lovely home with us. We truly appreciate it.

Great Family Thanksgiving

  • 5 of 5

My family of 13 (8 adults and 5 children) enjoyed a wonderful stay at this house. The fact that it was within walking distance of downtown Truckee made it especially memorable. We were able to enjoy downtown at night which was a special treat as the lights were spectacular. We also loved the sound of the trains which came through Truckee regularly. Side trips to Northstar for ice skating Donner State Historic Park made our family vacation truly memorable.

Great Place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We came up for a wedding in Truckee and had a wonderful stay, the house is lovely and very cozy. We spent a lot of the evenings out on the deck which has a nice view of the river and it was very relaxing.

The long kitchen table was perfect to accommodate the 13 of us for breakfast. I would recommend this house very highly and we will stay here the next time we come to Truckee.
