Perfect cabin for everyone for the sport enthusiast to those who want to relax. Located a short drive to Northstar and Squaw (20 min drive) and downtown Truckee for shopping, dining and indulging. Convenient restaurant, deli and recreation center are an easy walk away. Off of main road (frequently snow plowed) with a flat driveway and garage (this makes a big difference when it's snowing!).
Warm, friendly, clean and beautiful 3 bedroom/3 bathroom house in Truckee/Tahoe Donner area.
Perfect cabin/location for winter sport enthusiasts and those who want a fun, relaxing winter get away (or combination thereof).
Close to the best Ski Slopes: Northstar, Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, and Sugar Bowl. Sledding on the snow covered golf course a short walk away.
Walking distance to Trout Creek Rec Center, The Lodge Restaurant & Pub, Golf Course (which becomes a sledding location in winter). For those in your party who don't want to spend the day on the slopes, this means easy access to hot tubs, massages, exercise classes, fine dining, etc!
Also close to local market. Having a market this close means no need to drive to Safeway to stock up or get that one extra thing. This quaint market and has everything you could want (organic salad, gluten free cookies, wine, beer, etc!).
The house is a short drive to charming downtown Truckee which has many yummy restaurants and great shopping! Truckee is by far the most picturesque little town in the Sierras.
Level driveway and easy parking. House is on main (frequently snow plowed) Northwoods Blvd., but tucked back so not directly on road.
Two story floor plan allows for some people relaxing in the upstairs living room next to open kitchen while the kids (or child like adults) hang out in the down stairs TV /Rec room.
Window bench in kitchen window, and bar stools leads to people gathering and talking while food is being prepared. Cozy stone gas fireplaces in upstairs and downstairs living area. Nicely finished with Australian cypress wood floors and hickory cabinets throughout.
Three bedrooms (one King bed, two queens) and a air mattress allow comfortable sleeping for 8 people. For those who don't mind sleeping on couches, there are two very comfy couches for sleeping too.
Three bathrooms (two with tubs & showers. One with shower and separate jetted tub). The Jacuzzi tub in Master Bedroom.
Flat screen TV downstairs "rec room". Netflix available and cable TV channels. Snow shoes for four people are available in the garage for those who want a little outdoor exercise and fun (maybe a snow hike to the Deli -- they have great sandwiches and often have BBQ!). Two sleds are also available for use.
Pool, Gym, and Hot tub are NOT at the house, but are available at the Trout Creek Rec Center down the road (easy walk!). Exercise classes and massage are also offered at the Recreation Center. The Rec Center is only open to Tahoe Donner residents and their guests (that would be you!). We provide you with a 2 guest passes which allows for a total of 8 people to go to center. There is a $8 fee per person per day to use facilities.
We have a snow plowing service that clears our driveway every morning when it snows.
In addition to the garage which can fit two cars back to back., there are two parking spots outside house.
- While children are welcome, there are stairs and the house is not child proof. We also do not offer any small children specific beds or bedding.
- We sometimes bring our cat and dog with us, and while we have the house thoroughly cleaned, we wanted to mention this in case a future guest has very bad allergies.
- While we offer cable TV, Netflix and wireless internet, being in the mountains means sometimes they don't work. Doesn't happen often, and we address the issue ASAP, but it is something that can occur everywhere in the mountains.
- There is no land line phone.
All of our guests have commented on the warmth and friendliness of this house. We have heard "There's something about this house. I just want to hang out. I love this place" from all of our friends who've stay here. It is the perfect house for relaxing and socializing with friends and family (after a fun day of skiing!).
