ON THE TRUCKEE RIVER right in the historic downtown area, our little place is a 2 block walk to restaurants AND shopping. You’ll love our place because you can sit inside or in bed and watch the river flow by. It's a peaceful place, new and modern, private and the middle of it all. It's not just a place to stay, it's a destination. QUIET people only please.
We have a high end sofa sleeper + additional bedding so it can sleep 4. It's a tight fit for 4 but doable if you're close.

The space
Our space is unique because it's right on the river in downtown Truckee. There are new slip covers on all upholstered furniture (the couch and 2 cushioned chairs). This way every surface that you come in contact with will be able to be laundered or wiped/disinfected in between guests. We launder all bedding and all furniture coverings in between all guest stays. We built this home in 2016 so it's super clean, modern, light and bright and energy efficient. We try our best to make it the most welcoming and comfortable place you can stay in town. We appreciate QUIET peaceful guests as it's sort of a little sanctuary here. It's more of a tranquil getaway and don't want to encourage parties or loud get togethers. Please settle down by 9:30 or 10pm. There is extra sound insulation between the place and the house but if people are outside or loud inside some noises do travel and we want to keep a relaxing more quiet residence here. The queen sofa sleeper is in the main room and made by "American Leather" although it's not leather at all. It's a dense foam mattress and does not have springs. Most people think it's very comfortable and a few think it is not so comfortable because it's quite firm. Let us know before your arrival if you would like it made up into a bed for your arrival or left as a couch. Since the place is pretty small, once the bed is made up there's less hang out room. The bedding for it is inside the coffee table/trunk and the hall closet if you want to make it up later yourself. We have additional floor mattresses that we can bring in and have made up for your arrival if you like that as well. It's all pretty small so there really isn't much privacy between the sleeping areas.
We have a small kitchen with a refrigerator, toaster oven, microwave, drip coffee cones and filters, electric burner with pots and pans, BBQ outside and sort of miniature everything. Make sure to look inside the kitchen drawers and cabinets to find these items. There isn't a regular range with an oven.We supply a bit of coffee, tea, sugar and cream.
The heating is hydronic. It's tubes of hot water in the floor. The place is usually very warm and comfortable. The floor is concrete.
Northstar is about a 10-15 min drive when there isn't any traffic. Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows are about 20-25 min away. Lake Tahoe is about 20 minutes away by car.
Warning: We have a couple Bee Hives on the property. The Bee Hives are in the back yard on the east side of the yard. Please do not go near them. You probably won't even see them but if this makes you nervous you may want to stay somewhere else.
The place is actually our 3rd bedroom and attached to the west side of our house. It has its own entrance in the front and also a sliding glass door looking down to the river. When we host guests, we lock off the interior door so you will have your own private space not to be interrupted.
Remember this is a mellow neighborhood so we try to attract more mellow, low volume guests, no parties please.
We will try to make the place as clean as possible and that's why we have raised our cleaning fees because of the rigorous cleaning efforts we will be going through.
No humans under 12 please, sorry.

Where you’ll be

Truckee, California, United States

Our neighborhood is so unique because it's just a couple level blocks to town, restaurants, shops and the train station yet out the back door it looks like we are in the wilderness with the river right out the back door. This really is a space for quieter mellow people. No parties please.

I'm a realtor with Sotheby's International Realty and I've lived in the Tahoe/Truckee area for 40+ years. My dad built a cabin here when I was just a kid and I fell in love with the area. After a career of river guiding in California and the Grand Canyon I settled back down here. My husband Paul is a contractor and has built many homes in the area including this one on the Truckee River. Our daughter Amory loves it so much she moved back after college. We love skiing, mainly at Alpine Meadows, Mt Biking, all sorts of our door adventures and the community here. Come and be our guests. We would love to share this area with you.
