Walk to all the shops, restaurants, watering holes and train station. Quiet and private with forested mountain views. Perfect for a couple or solo getaway. 5 minutes from Truckee Airport. 5 minutes to Donner Lake. 20 minutes to Lake Tahoe. 10-15 minutes to great skiing at Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, Northstar & Sugarbowl.
The guest room is a fully private master suite with California king sleigh bed and private ensuite full bath. You'll find luxuries and amenities like 2000 thread count linens, down pillows, bedside tables, reading lamps, ceiling fan, dresser, WiFi, and flat screen TV with Chromecast (free download app for iPhone or Android) for wireless broadcast of anything from your phone or laptop (no cable TV). There's also a full-sized oak desk with office supplies, laser printer, HEPA air purifier, flat iron, hair dryer, iron & ironing board. The bathroom is fully stocked with towels, shampoo, conditioner, soap, shave gel and lotion.
The flat occupies the entire second floor (top floor) of a free-standing building with sweeping mountain views, total privacy and no residential neighbors. Built in 1890, this beautifully furnished classic Victorian home has been completely renovated. It has high ceilings and freshly restored trim, wainscoting and beadboard throughout. New kitchen, bathrooms, floors, double-pane windows, forced air central heat and central air conditioning bring all the modern comforts and amenities for vintage charm without any rustic compromise.
We're right in the heart of historic Truckee within a few blocks of everything downtown, yet it's calm, quiet and private with 180 degree mountain views.
The kitchen is central and open, so it's great for sociable cooking and dining. There's a large granite-topped island with 6 counter-height chairs. You'll find the kitchen fully stocked with everything you might need including Riedel wine glasses and decanters, Le Creuset cast iron pans, Henckels knives, juicer, blender, rice cooker, drip coffee maker, electric kettle, baking sheets, mixing bowls, every cooking utensil and about 75 spices.
The living room is great for social gathering or quiet enjoyment, with comfortable seating around a large central leather ottoman, an audiophile sound system, and beautiful alpine views through bay windows.
There's also a lounge/media room that reflects the decadence of the Victorian era in a comfortable, cozy space with antique Edison bulb chandelier and sconces, Persian rug, and an oversized sectional couch to melt into. There's a 4K curved screen smart TV with Amazon Prime video, DVD player (no cable TV), and 5.1 surround sound. It's exactly where you want to be to watch a movie and an equally great space to lounge and relax. When desired, the lounge can be used as an additional bedroom to accommodate more guests (see the explanation under Guest Access below).
Disponible para huéspedes
Guests enjoy complete privacy of the master suite as well as shared use of the common areas of the house: kitchen, living room, lounge, porch and veranda. Our guests are encouraged to make yourselves at home.
For up to 4 guests, the lounge/media room doubles as a bedroom when needed. The base of the giant sectional sofa in the lounge is 2 full-sized beds, so one or both can be made up as proper beds instead, and there's a door for privacy.
We keep the place professionally cleaned to a 5-star hotel standard for every guest.
Atención a los huéspedes
Whether you're looking for privacy or company, you'll find the right balance here. People in the Victorian era defined their wealth by the number of rooms in their house, not square footage. As a result, our Victorian flat has a variety of comfortable rooms and sitting areas (including 2 living rooms) in which to gather and socialize or get away and relax in private. Your choice. And the surrounding area offers unlimited options for a great mountain getaway.
