Peter & Debbie Henry purchased this house in 2007

Why Peter & Debbie Henry chose Truckee

We love the mountains, especially the Tahoe Area and the Old Town of Truckee. We purchased a home in Tahoe-Donner and decided to expand and bought this upscale 2 story home on December 2007 from the builder. It is close to everything, is private, woodsy and has the Tahoe feel we were looking for.

What makes this house unique

The home is well-appointed for our relaxed mountain lifestyle, with Asian carpets, copious original art, views, mountain look and feel. It is so well located close to every thing, yet private and quiet.

Fantastic house in great location

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

We recommend this lovely home. It is well designed, with garage parking, a large comfortable family room, a well appointed kitchen and very comfortable beds. It was perfect for a ski week for our family of 5, including 3 teenagers. We cooked most meals in and the kitchen was better stocked than our own kitchen. The road was ploughed after a heavy snow fall and the driveway was also ploughed. The home is closer to the ski resorts and town, and has all the amenities of Tahoe Donner.

A wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This home was ideal for our family gathering over the Thanksgiving holiday. It was clean, comfortable, well maintained, and met all our needs. Though we numbered six adults and three young children, this large and lovely home accommodated all of us very comfortably. The living room's vaulted, two-story-high ceiling gives the entire house an open and spacious ambiance; and the second-floor hallway that overlooks the living room charmed the children.

Because of the Thanksgiving holiday, the kitchen was a busy place; so we were pleased to find all the appliances and utensils we needed. In fact, it is the most well-stocked kitchen of any among the homes we have rented. The master bedroom is spacious and includes a king-size bed and flat-panel television. Its very large bathroom has a double sink, a glassed-in shower and a Jacuzzi tub.

Needless to say, we enjoyed watching the Thanksgiving Day parade and football games on the living room's flat-panel television while a fire crackled in the fireplace. Playing board games with the children and taking daily walks in the woods were additional favorite pastimes. We would recommend this wonderfully inviting home to anyone.
