Truckee House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 8

Beautiful 3BR house with views of mountains and pine forest, has vaulted beam ceilings and knotty pine interior, south facing windows and deck with private hot tub. Main living area has 'great room' layout with living, kitchen and dining area. Wood stove keeps the house toasty and there's a large supply of firewood stacked in the garage. Large master suite has vaulted ceilings with large picture windows with views of mountains and Northstar ski runs.

The master suite has a queen bed (for 2 persons). The second bedroom has a queen bed (for 2 persons) and a single bed. The third bedroom has a queen bed (for 2 persons). In addition there is a single bed located in an alcove off the master bedroom. Total sleeping capacity is 8 persons.

Close to all North Tahoe ski resorts (Tahoe Donner, Sugar Bowl, Northstar, Squaw Valley, and others). Guest passes included for access to Tahoe Donner Recreation Centers, with heated swimming pools, tennis courts, fitness centers, and golf course. Guest passes also entitle you to discounts at Tahoe Donner ski resort.

Attached two car garage lets you drive in and enter the house from inside the garage, and NOT have snow on your car in the morning. Automatic driveway heating system keeps the driveway ice and snow free. The garage has a ski tuning workbench, with excellent lighting, hot & cold running water washbasin, and AC power, to keep your skis in top condition.

Hot tub seats 4 to 6 and is professionally maintained.

No Smoking, No Pets Policy: Rest assured this will be a clean, smoke free environment for our guests. The owner takes smoking and pet restrictions seriously. No smoking permitted within the premises under any circumstances. No pets permitted within the premises.

Equipped with the latest technology: The house has, first of all, high speed cable modem internet service and WIFI for free unlimited high speed internet access. It also has two flat screen LCD TVs, each with its own built in DVD player. And there's a Sony sound system with CD player and built in iPod docking station. Finally, there's excellent cell phone reception so your cell phones will work just fine (many homes in Tahoe Donner don't have cell phone coverage!).

Kid Friendly: The house has tons of toys for kids. There's an entire closet crammed with kid's games and toys. There are a bunch of kids' videos. And in the garage, there are lots of snow toys (saucers, sleds, toboggans, snowball making machine, etc.) for the kids to play with. Your kids will have a blast!

IMPORTANT - PLEASE READ THIS: The cleaning deposit is collected in advance, however if the number of hours required exceeds the standard 3.5 hours, your credit card will be billed for the cost of additional cleaning AFTER it has been performed. The rate is $40 per hour and the normal cleaning requires 3.5 hours, which will be covered by your cleaning deposit of $140 if the house has been left in good condition and in accordance with the checkout instructions. Otherwise your credit card will be charged for any excess cleaning hours.

Owner purchased this house in 2009

Why Owner chose Lake Tahoe North Shore

Truckee/Tahoe has a wealth of natural beauty and fantastic sporting opportunities. Summertime: warm summer weather makes it perfect for any of the following: swimming, tennis, golf, whitewater rafting, rock climbing, hiking, cycling, hot air ballooning, water skiing, kayaking... the list never ends. Access to the incredible Tahoe Donner recreation centers, just a short walk or bike ride away, provides access to world class facilities, with heated swimming pools, hot spas, gyms, a huge tennis center, equestrian center, and a lot more. Winter time: close access to great ski resorts, Tahoe Donner is right there, and Sugar Bowl is right next door, plus easy access to Squaw Valley, Northstar, and numerous other North Lake Tahoe ski resorts. Plus, the Tahoe Donner Rec Center provides a heated indoor and OUTDOOR swimming pool (imagine that!) and fitness center that operates year round.

Great Experience!

  • 5 of 5

Hello! Just got back yesterday from 3 nights in this cabin. We had a great experience! The private hot tub was fantastic, grill was easy to use and the cabin was clean and really well stocked. Interacting with the owner was great and the location was close enough to civilization but far enough that we still felt we were in nature. Would/will probably stay again :)

Great time in Tahoe Donner

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a great time in Truckee. This house is as described. Very clean, well appointed and the kitchen had all the items of our own home. The deck has nice views - one evening 2 large bucks stopped in front of the house to graze. HVAC was easy to use and we were comfortable. The Master bedroom is wonderful with views of the stars at night through the huge A frame window and skylight. The 2 passes to Donner's facilities were a bonus. We used the tennis facility and the Adventure Center.

The owner was very responsive to inquiries.

4 nights inTruckee

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the spaciousness of this property and the proximity to Donner Lake, where we participated in a swim event. Everything was here that we needed. Sitting on the deck, we enjoyed the smell of the pine trees. The setting was so serene.

Great location, nice kitchen and well stocked. Excellent balcony and hot tub.

  • 4 of 5

Had an excellent time. The master bedroom is fantastic with its view. Snowed while we were there and had no problems in or out of the neighborhood. Could use a better seating arrangement in the living room. Would definitely return.
