Photos and Description of the Truckee vacation house rental

Truckee - Large 3 story house, Sleeps 30, Ping Pong, Amenities

***Click on "calendar" (above) to view our calendar for our current availability***

Big beautiful house with huge deck and dining table. This house is available as a 6 bdrm/4 bath or only the 4 bedroom, 3 bath portion of the house, during off seasons midweek, or last minute any season.

We also have another smaller house, 3bdrm, 2 bath in the same neighborhood, a mile away. Sleeps 12 in beds or 15 total. VRBO ID# 25245

Large groups can rent both houses but you need to check both calendars for availability.

We accommidate large groups at both houses.

ACCOMMODATIONS for this house: HDTV, as a 6 bedroom house it sleeps 20 in beds, but it can put up to 30 if using the floor and couches. The huge main great room has a fireplace on a huge stone hearth. 50' big screen HDTV with DVD. Huge comfy 15ft sectional. Log game table. Beautiful wall coverings throughout and a bear skin. Large fully stocked kitchen with granite counters and stainless appliances. Huge dining table for 15 or more. Additional counter space w/stools. Parking: for 8-10 vehicles. Garage workbench for your sports gear tune-ups and a ping pong table.

House has WIFI - wireless internet.

Truckee has 2 regions. One has the original historic, rustic look with the wooden plank walkways and charming shops etc. from the days of the old west gone by, while the other end of town is contemporary. Both have shops, restaurants, taverns galore. This town has become the #1 hotspot of Tahoe and Tahoe Donner Resort is now famous, google it.

I try hard to give you the absolute best rates. Please do not compare mine to another smaller house or a condo located in a less desirable area like South Shore or Kings Beach or on some busy street like Northwoods in Tahoe Donner. There is no comparison, it would not be comparing apples to apples.


is preferred but you can reach me by phone daily from 9am-7pm 925-297-7778 PST daily


This house is 3 stories. The 2nd story, main floor, has the family room, kitchen, laundry room and 1 master bathroom. The 3rd story has the 2nd master bedroom and bath, 2 additional bunk rooms and a full bathroom. The ground floor has the optional extra 2 bdrms & 1 bath with a 2nd family room (making it 6 bdrms & 4 ba + a 2nd family room) it is your option.


Beautiful dark oak 'mission' style cabinets, and new granite counters. Big and open with lots of counter space and newer stainless appliances. It has everything for all your kitchen needs, including pots and pans, dishes, coffee maker, microwave, BBQ, etc..


Huge deck with built in benches, seating for 30, that runs the entire length of the back of the house. Great for summer BBQs and family get togethers. Gas BBQ for your use from Spring - Fall. Stored Winters.


Large light and bright, there are huge pine trees and aspen views from every window. You will feel the incredibleness of being in the Tahoe National Forest. If you're lucky you may see a buck, or wolf or a bear pass by. Wow!


There are 2 master suites with Queen sized beds (one of those master bedrooms has a 'sleep number' mattress so you can adjust the firmness to suit you). The other master on the 3rd floor, has vaulter ceilings and a balcony off it. The other 2 bedrooms have queen over queen custom bunk beds to accommodate up to 4 adults per room. There is also the loft area which has a comfortable 'full size' futon that can accommodate 2 more adults. (the 6 bdrm option includes the first floor; 2 bdrms (3 queens) & 1 ba & 2nd small family room with a HDTV.


Are available option for 15/person or save your $ & bring your own linens (totally up to you, you decide what you want) towels and queen sized sheets (or king sized will work). Futon is a 'full size'. Sleeping bags are fine too, especially for kids. 2 blankets and 2 pillows/bed are provided to everyone.


There is an extra large washer and dryer.


Pets are allowed but NOT on any furniture. If this is unacceptable to you please find another house. Also, no 'aggressive breeds' such as Rots, Chow's or Pits or mixes thereof, per my insurance co.


In the summer there is river rafting, scenic 'All Terrain Vehicle' riding and mountain biking at select ski resorts. All are a short drive from Tahoe Donner. Donner Lake is 5 minutes away where you can rent sail boats and kayaks or bring your own boat to our private beach facility. You can swim and sun, have a picnic and enjoy the snack bar there. I also have membership to the exclusive Tahoe Donner, Trout Creek, clubhouse. For about $8 per adult per day (young kids are free) you can get your fill of the 3 pools, 3 hot tubs, steam room, workout room and a full on gym. Tahoe Donner also has horseback riding in the summer with advanced reservation. There are also tennis courts & several golf courses as well.


There are 2 restaurants within Tahoe Donner Resort, one is formal, The Lodge. It is a short distance up Northwoods and the food is phenomenal. You can eat in the formal dining room or the casual bar where you can watch sports on the wide screen T.V.s The other is 'Pizza on the Hill' that serves delicious pizzas, burritos, salads etc..and plays family movies weekly.

Beyond that there are a variety of restaurants galore in the town of Truckee itself, from world renowned fine dining to fast food.


There are lots of shops in Truckee. First there is the 'old town' section with the charming shops, wooden sidewalks, and rustic look of days gone by. Then there is 'new town' which is contemporary. In both you will find an abundance of shopping, from clothing, gifts, ski wear, art,candy, furniture etc..

This is a wonderful, huge mountain home. We love it and think you will too

Keywords: Large house in the forest. Great for large groups, church retreats, family reunions, company gatherings.
