About The Owner

I bought my cabin in 1977 because I always wanted to live in the mountains. I came to Truckee from Fallon, Nevada where I grew up on a cattle ranch that still is family operated today. For years I taught first grade in my hometown and drove an hour and a half to Truckee to enjoy and rebuild my house to what it is today.

I now live in Kona, Hawaii and Fallon, Nevada and currently are building a house in Boquete, Panama. My favorite place for eating out and hiking and skiing is Truckee.

The Owner purchased this house in 1977

Best Christmas in this beautiful Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Sorry for the late review. My family and I had the best time here in Glennshire. We arrived in a snow storm but upon arrival the cabin was warm and ready. Very clean all the comforts of home stocked with everthing you need for a wonderful vacation. We spent Christmas here the owner let us set up a Christmas tree for my two young grandson's they were so excited they thought we were not going to have a tree. The hot tub was very nice to get in, in a snow storm (never did that before). We did snow shoeing around the area what great fun! Eric next door shoved snow morning noon and night The driveway the walk way and the porch so we had not trouble at all getting in or out, my husband even helped just for fun! We did not ski this trip but it did not matter it was family time opening presents, enjoying each others company, laughing, playing games eating great food making snow men old time fun without electronics in this great cabin The reality is book this place it is wonderful!

Better than the pictures

  • 5 of 5

This is going on my list of favorite places. The owner was very pleasant to work with. The cabin feels more like a home than a rental. The cabin is well furnished. Nice flat panel TVs (two of them), wireless internet, kitchen is well equipped, and the hot tub is marvellous. All the fixtures from kitchen sink and faucet, to windows to clothes hangers in the bath room are good quality items. The little touches like pictures on the wall etc makes this place feel like a real home. The pictures do not do it justice.

Amazing stay!

  • 5 of 5

My partner, dog, and I stayed at this cabin for six nights and had an amazing time! It's in a great location, just a short drive to Truckee, and an easy drive to Northstar and Squaw, the resorts we visited on this trip. Everything on the property is very clean and well maintained, and the furnishings/beddings were of a nice quality (eg, didn't feel like someone's old furniture that they just stored up in Tahoe, like some other cabins). And, the hot tub was a savior after a long day of skiing! The bed warmers were a nice touch too :) The cabin owner was very nice and responsive in all of our dealings and even had the caretaker check in with us after a particularly cold night, to ensure the pipes weren't frozen.
