Why Andy chose Truckee

We fell in love with the view! and the ability to play right outside the back door: build snowmen, hike or cross country ski. You feel like you have acres of preserved park land that's all yours.

What makes this house unique

Only a few steps up to the house. No long staircase to climb... especially in ski boots!

Lovely home for our family

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at David and Andy's home. The views are great, it's only 5 min to the slopes, and the house is bright and so well equipped. Thanks. We'll be back.

Breathtaking Views Over MLK Weekend in the Snow

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at your oh-so-thoroughly well-appointed home! We felt very well-taken-care-of by all the homey details: the kitchen so completely stocked with all the equipment we might have needed and just the general coziness of the home.

We spent many enjoyable hours looking out over the beautiful expanse of snow and pine trees from the large windows at the back of the house. One morning we saw a coyote! and we were treated to several rainbows. :-)

By far the most comfortable place we have stayed in while skiing—we'll definitely be back.

Loved staying here.

  • 5 of 5

This was the most comfortable I've ever been in a vacation rental house. The owner seems to have thought of everything in creating a welcoming place to stay. It's a very appealing and comfortable house, with many artistic touches, as well as thoughtful additions such as good magazines, books, an outstandingly equipped kitchen, wireless internet, a good tv.

The bedrooms were very comfortable with beautiful linens, plenty of privacy with the two full bathrooms upstairs, and additional bathroom on the first level. We enjoyed cooking, relaxing on the deck over cocktails, sitting at the dining table surrounded by windows looking out on the views of nature. Terrific walking trails right out the door. Well located - short easy drives to Lake Tahoe and Donner Lake, as well as Truckee and shopping. We enjoyed the autumn weather and views, and see why this is a place to enjoy year round.

Awesome home. Close to Village, but private and lovely

  • 5 of 5

Can't say enough about this place. It's really a lovely home, not a typical rental. Warm, comfortable, decorated with taste, great kitchen, and what a view. It was perfect for our family... fresh, 3 spacious bedrooms, clean. We will be back this winter. Thanks.

Even better than "advertised"

  • 5 of 5

Had a perfect fall weekend in this lovely house. The property is as described - lots of light, very fresh with a terrific, relaxing view of the valley. The house feels loved and welcoming - there are some rentals that feel tired, and this is NOT one of those. The downstairs is great for entertaining, cooking, hanging out and talking - open floor plan with a kitchen, dining area and living room all around the fireplace. The 3 bedrooms are upstairs, and carefully laid out for privacy. The owner has added many thoughtful and fun touches, whether in the kids' room with a big stuffed bear or in the kitchen with more condiments & pots than I have in my home kitchen. The outside deck was perfect for cocktails on a warm-to-cooling fall night - quiet view of the valley, bright yellow aspens rustling nearby. I imagine this house is great anytime of year, and would absolutely return.

Great weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

My quasi-wife and I had a very comfortable, relaxing, long August weekend in this cabin. It's very comfortable, and is well-equipped. With an unobstructed view to the meadow, we felt it had the best views in the development, and most rooms showcased it with ample windows. It's not too big for one couple, just right for two couples, and probably fine for three couples, especially if the third couple prefers sleeping in separate beds :-).

We acclimated by hiking the trails around the cabin, and hiked the Tahoe Rim Trail the next day. Another day, we drove down to Lake Tahoe. But most of the time, we just lazed around the cabin in the comfy chairs and out on the deck. A free shuttle was just a phone call away which would have taken us to the rec center with jacuzzi had we wished (or gym, or ski area).

We cooked on the barbecue every night and found all the cooking and eating implements we needed.

I thought the mosquitoes would be bad (late July/early August) since it was a late season this year, but they were almost absent. I did get a few bites after sitting out on the desk after dusk, but had I been wearing pants and socks, I probably wouldn't have noticed.

We're definitely planning to return every year!
