This gorgeous three bedroom Truckee vacation home is an ideal home base for exploring all that historic Truckee has to offer. Not only will you feel right at home in the comforting and lodge-like style of this amenity packed home, but you'll also get to take advantage of year-round outdoor pools and hot tubs, as well as enjoy the area's golf courses, ski resorts, eateries, and other attractions!
Nestled within the tall, alpine trees, you'll have stunning forest views throughout the home, especially off the large deck where you'll find a gas grill, plenty of patio seating, and even outdoor Bose speakers to set the vacation soundtrack.
Inside, a beautiful river rock wood burning fireplace acts as a focal point (although the view out to the deck is a close second). Or, if you want your evening's entertainment to be a bit more adventure-packed, you can watch a DVD on the large TV - there's also cable to for some late-night channel surfing.
The large open feeling continues into the dining room and kitchen's tall, vaulted ceilings. Through the windows you'll be able to see that beautiful tree-lined view while sitting down to dinner or mixing up some pancake batter for a late morning brunch. The deluxe and gourmet kitchen boasts granite counters and a kitchen island, with all the major appliances present, including a second oven, food processor, and a vast collection of cookware.
Three cozy, main floor bedrooms and an upstairs loft will sleep up to 8 guests. The master suite has deck access with an outdoor hammock, a large king sized, cloud-like bed, and an attached bathroom with a granite-surrounded, jetted, soaking tub. The two comfortable queen bedrooms share an additional full bathroom.
Head upstairs to the loft in the evenings for a game of pool at the full-sized pool table. And afterwards, the kids can stay up here for a good night's sleep in twin bunk beds. There's also a third bathroom to share. The futon is no longer available for sleeping. This home offers plenty of additional amenities, including a stereo and sound dock, wireless Internet, games and books, a washer and dryer, and three full bathrooms for easy space sharing.
For guests staying at this Sierra Sanctuary, there's year-round outdoor pools and a hot tub, as well as access to Tahoe Donner amenities like cross-country skiing, an equestrian center, tennis, a private beach and boat launch at Donner Lake, a recreation complex, and skiing and snowboarding (for a discounted fee).
In the greater Truckee area, you'll be near fine dining at the Lodge Restaurant & Pub, as well as other options like pizza and trivia night at Pizza on the Hill, or sushi and grilled wild boar at Dragonfly. When the snow falls, you'll be within 15 miles of Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows and Northstar ski resorts, and right nearby you can snowshoe around Donner Lake, Donner Memorial State Park, and in the Tahoe National Forest.
In summer, Lake Tahoe is a scenic 20 mile ride to the southeast and three golf courses right in Truckee to choose from. Plan a day trip down to Kings Beach for some time on the sand or even a scenic cruise around the lake. While you're there, you can even continue across the Nevada state line for some gambling and entertainment at the Crystal Bay Casino.
This Truckee vacation rental offers comfort, amazing amenities, and a central location for skiing, golfing, and dining. Plan a visit soon for a truly memorable Tahoe getaway!
Please note that four-wheel drive and/or chains may be required in the winter, due to the steep driveway.

We have rented a cabin in the Truckee area annually for the last 15 years. This cabin is now our number one choice.
The home is clean, well-maintained and well equipped. The kitchen is well stocked with utensils, seasonings and equipment.
We would highly recommend the cabin to anyone. We will be back!

Sierra Sanctuary in Beautiful Truckee/North Tahoe
Left on 05/10/2013 for a stay in February 2013 | Chia
We stayed here few times; each time, we felt rejuvenated afterwards. The location in Tahoe Donner was serene and peaceful with friendly neighbors who smiled when we saw them during our morning walk. We stayed there and used Tahoe Donner's skiing this past time. It was family oriented and not very crowded. If you wanted to visit nearby big skiing resort, it was only 10 minutes to Northstart and 20 minutes to Squaw Valley.
The cabin itself was decorated with pride of home ownership. The gourmet kitchen was a fun place to prepare meals with my friends. The cabin was spacious. We were group of 7 and there was plenty of room. The fireplace was a nice amenity on chilly wintry days. There was a pool table in the loft, which provided for entertainment. There were also 3-4 boxes of Dvds to choose from. The cabin felt like home away from home.
We highly recommend this sierra sanctuary!

This Sierra Sanctuary was a relaxing departure from the busy city. A beautiful space full of forest views from every window, gorgeous master suite with a jet tub,gas fireplace, pool table, large gourmet kitchen,wireless internet,and Bose stereo system. It is centrally located in Truckee close to dining, golf courses, grocery stores, and shopping. Donner Lake is four miles away, ski areas are close by and Lake Tahoe is 20 miles away.
There is good parking for up to five vehicles in the driveway and the two-car garage. It is on a a very quiet street and beautiful as described! I highly reccomend this property! Will rent again!

A beautiful home. Self contained for getting away, yet in a hotbed of area activities close by-golf, hiking, horseback riding, workout facility (if you must) So much to do for all ages, or just relax and enjoy the sierra mountains. Vacasa was easy to use and quite responsive to our needs. Truly a relaxing time away from the grind. Looking forward to another stay soon.
