About Joyce Risi

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.

Cozy and Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

What a spectacular gem! Fully equipped kitchen, cozy sleeping arrangements, a comfortable living space and our own hot tub! It is the perfect place to spend time together. Loved Downtown Truckee, Glenshire Pizza and the convenient proximity to North Shore high lights! Joyce was easy and excellent to work with too!

Pictures do not do this comfy place justice!

  • 5 of 5

A very nice and cozy home that is nicely decorated and well appointed with everything needed for your stay. The open floor plan is very nice and the gas stoves keep it warm when chilly. Upstairs has two nice queen beds and a sleeper chair that works out nicely for a family. The bathroom upstairs has a large shower with very nice tile work throughout. There are two decks. The one upstairs off of the master has breathtaking views of the mountains. The deck downstairs is off the kitchen and dining with french doors if you want to feel a nice mountain breeze. The deck has a gas bbq hook up,a hot tub, and great views as well. Thank you Joyce for the Christmas accommodations! Our family was very very happy! We hope to visit again in the future. ~ The March Family

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.
