Truckee House Rental Photos and Description

Truckee, California

Escape the chaos of everyday life and unwind at this quiet Truckee vacation rental home. Whether you’re taking advantage of the area’s endless options for outdoor adventure or relishing in some much needed relaxation time, this house has everything you need for a wonderfully memorable vacation!

With 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and enough space to comfortably accommodate 6-8 guests, this mountain home is ideal for a family or group of friends wanting to get away and spend some quality time together. Situated in a quiet, residential community and surrounded by a variety of mature Sierra Pines, this property offers a peaceful and private backdrop for your stay. You’ll love the slow paced, stress-free days and time spent bonding in the bright and airy second floor great room, which features vaulted ceilings, tasteful furnishings, and a cozy fireplace, creating the perfect spot for your group to convene. The dwelling's modern amenities, including wireless internet connection, in-unit laundry machines and cable TV, will help you feel right at home. 

After an exciting day exploring everything the Lake Tahoe area has to offer, your group will love gathering around the flat screen TV to watch your favorite movies and rehash the day’s activities. Once you’ve worked up an appetite, refuel with a delicious meal prepared in the fully equipped kitchen, complete with all the necessary cooking appliances and a breakfast bar. If you would rather spend your downtime outdoors, read a good book on the second floor balcony as you admire your beautiful surroundings and breathe in the fresh mountain air. 

This home's location is absolutely unbeatable! From here, you’ll be within 10-30 minutes of some of California’s best downhill and cross country skiing options, such as Northstar, Squaw Valley, Tahoe Donner, and Sugarbowl. You’ll also be just a few minutes from a wide variety of free cross country skiing and snowshoeing locations at Martis Valley, Donner Lake, Emigrant Memorial Trail, and North Tahoe regional parks. In the summertime, experience the Sierra Nevadas in a new way when the slopes become a haven for mountain bikers - bike 5 minutes to Sawtooth trails and Yogi Bear trails, or pack up your gear and drive 10-40 minutes to any of the ski resorts, the Western States off highway 89, Hole in the Ground near Donner Summit, or Flume/Tahoe Rim Trail at Tunnel Creek Road. 

You won’t have to venture far to find thrilling water-based activities either, as this house is only 15 minutes from the spectacular Lake Tahoe, where you can enjoy boating, fishing, and numerous other water sports. Additionally, you’ll be 10 minutes from Donner Lake and Prosser Lake, as well as 25 minutes from Boca. The thrill seekers in your group will be delighted by easy accessibility to prime rock climbing spots nearby, such as Big Chief, the Amphitheater, and Twin Crags. Explore the area further by hiking along the pristine Pacific Crest Trail, 5 Lakes Trail, Shirley Lake Trail, and the Emigrant Commemorative Trail.

If you don’t consider yourself an outdoorsman, don’t worry, as there are options for you as well! This vacation house is located just 2 miles from Historic Downtown Truckee, which offers a variety of shops and restaurants to choose from – try the delicious cuisine at Trokay, where they use all fresh, local ingredients. Summer outdoor concerts and festivals occur 1 mile away at the Truckee Regional park and at several of the ski resorts. Make sure to stop by the annual Truckee Rodeo if you’re in town! Additionally, North Lake Tahoe and Reno, Nevada are just a short drive away and feature some of the area’s best casinos. No matter what time of year you decide to visit, this wonderful Truckee vacation rental home is in the prime spot for any Lake Tahoe area getaway!

Short stay but fun

  • 5 of 5

My family was attending a wedding and needed a place that would also accommodate dogs. The big fenced yard was perfect! We only stayed two nights but enjoyed the comfortable accommodations, large couch, stocked kitchen items, and nice deck.

Older house in a quiet neighborhood

Clean house in a quiet neighborhood; the house is old, floors squeak, lots of spiders, beds are not the most. comfortable, but it's functional. I would not rent this house again.

Great location for a Truckee adventure!

  • 5 of 5

Home was clean and comfortable. Out dog really enjoyed the large well fenced back yard and the kids had fun with the bunk beds. When I forgot the pass code at the front door, I made one call and was responded to quickly (I had found the code in my email box but appreciated the call back). Thanks for the fine weekend visit

Perfect House for the Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

I loved this house the minute we pulled into the driveway. It had everything we needed for the weekend - fully equipped kitchen, flat screen tv, wifi, comfortable bedrooms and furniture, wonderful wrap around porch, fenced in backyard, and surrounded by trees. It was peaceful and close to town. There was nothing I felt was missing and I look forward to actually staying there again! Great place to stay.

Comfortable and clean!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to spend the weekend when your mind is distracted by having to complete a tough mudder! After the drive from the bay area, I immediately plopped myself on the cozy couch, turned on the cable TV and connected my phone to the Wifi. Fresh towels and complimentary toiletries were provided as we prepared for dinner. We took a short drive (less than 10 minutes) into town and enjoyed good eats & drinks at Old Town Tap where we watched the Warriors beat the Cavs! There were so many interesting restaurants to choose from! The place is well laid out with a wrap around deck, high ceilings in the family room, a fully fenced backyard for pets to roam and clean kitchen, bathrooms and bedrooms! It was perfect for our party of 4 and look forward to my next stay!

Tough Mudder Weekend - 2016

  • 5 of 5

Exceeded my expectations. We needed a comfortable place to stay for the weekend, dreaded the thought of having to stay in a motel/hotel. Wanted a bit of privacey.

The place was exceptionally clean, kitchen fully stocked, and towels provided. Free Wi-Fi was avaiable as well as Cable.

Just a short drive from the major freeway, I80, eating establisments, and popular ski resorts.

I mention ski resorts because I'm a skier and would definitely stay here, if available, for a ski trip.

I highly recommend staying here when visiting the Tahoe area be it summer or winter.
