  • Nice place


    Beautiful view. Quick drive to Truckee. Perfect for a small family. Driveway is a little confusing to find if coming from the north. Look at maps before arriving.

  • Cute place on the truckee river


    Really sweet little place on the truckee river that suited my needs, snowboarding at Northstar. Google maps kept wanting to send me all the way down to Alpine Meadows if I navigated there with that app; so heads up on that. The house could benefit from better water flow in the kitchen sink, or a dishwasher.

  • Post new years ski trip


    My family and I really enjoyed our three nights here for a short ski trip at Palisades/ Alpine Meadows. Great location being about midway between truckee and Olympic valley right off hwy 89. The deck off the back of the house is awesome and borders right up against the truckee river. The house is 1 of 3 properties on a small driveway pull off on 89, and can sneak up quickly, so be careful with traffic. Also, exiting the driveway is a bit of of incline, so care is need there as well when merging onto 89.

  • Absolutely wonderful!


    If you are looking for a quiet get away on the river, this is for you! This rustic cabin is so lovely and surrounded by beautiful lush greenery - Quaking aspens, Pines, and tons of other plants including some lupines. There is a beautiful running creek to the left of the property that feeds into the running river down below which is all easily accessible. There are chairs down by it to hang out on.

    As far as swimmable, it is not really so easy at the cabin but there are plenty of spots nearby. It is rocky and you will need your river sandals to walk around. There is a walkable trail to the left that goes through the woods along the river. The cabin is cozy and has everything you need. Very dog friendly, there are supplies for you in the mudroom. The deck is new and huge and safe for dogs since it has gates and it looks out onto the river.

    The only tricky part of this cabin is it easy to miss. Google maps sent us 5 miles past to make a u-turn. There's a highway sign for the landfill that is at the entrance. Don't worry, there is no landfill nearby!

    The cabin is close to town to get to Safeway, etc and close to the River Run and Tahoe City. What is so great is there is not much light at night and you can see tons of stars at night. We would stay there again for sure! Jackie is a great host and very communicative! Thank you again, Jackie!

  • Lovely home on the river


    Home was perfect for our family of 4. Cozy and clean. Central to everything. Jackie was also so responsive when we had questions. Thank you for sharing your home. We enjoyed waking up everyday to the sound of the flowing river. It was so relaxing.
