Recent Truckee vacation rental reviews

We loved our stay at the Tahoe Bear Den! Everything is beautifully updated with thoughtful touches throughout the home. The beds were extremely comfortable, which we appreciated after long days exploring. Easy check-in/ check-out. Great spot for a group or (like us) a remote work retreat.
Tahoe Bear Den, LLC J. | Sep 2021
The house is trendy and beautiful. We stayed for 3 nights . This house has 3 bedrooms and 3 baths . Unfortunately the master bedroom king is very firm and we couldn't rest soundly on it also the pillows in the house were not good they are very tall and hurt your neck . Just warning if you are picky you may want to bring your own . Other then not sleeping great the house is very nice on a quiet street with food and coffee just down the road . One other small problem I incurred was I couldn't find a remote . It's a roku tv so I called Vacasa and they told me to download the remote app which was very easy .

Where is Truckee, CA?

Conveniently located near Interstate 80 and historic Donner Pass, Truckee is perhaps the most easily accessed Tahoe California town. Crystal blue views of Donner Lake (which has both public and private docks) welcome travelers as they approach from the west. Visitors coming from the crowded cities and bustling suburbs of the Sacramento Valley and beyond also come to Truckee when they want accommodations a little outside the typical resort communities along the Lake Tahoe shore.

Tahoe Donner amenities

Guests staying at our Truckee rentals in the Tahoe Donner association will have access to the Trout Creek Recreation Center, Northwoods Clubhouse, Donner Lake Beach Club Marina, and Tahoe Donner Equestrian Center. Among these facilities are pools, spas, numerous sports courts, and more. Guests must present their member pass for access, and four people per pass will be admitted. Please note that a small fee is required to use some of the amenities. In summer, bring the clubs: in addition to the Tahoe Donner Golf Course, there are no less than 13 golf courses around Truckee.

Things to do in Truckee

Outdoor activities in Truckee are abundant! The Truckee area boasts 6,000 acres, 270 trails, 43 lifts, eight mountain peaks, and six terrain parks. Located near Donner Memorial State Park, you can white water raft, camp, have a picnic, or hike park trails.

The public Tahoe Donner Ski Area (featuring downhill runs) and the Tahoe Donner Cross-Country Ski Area are must-visit winter wonderlands for those who want time away from the crowds in the Olympic Valley. If you want to consider vacation condos right on a resort, check out our homes at the Northstar California Resort.

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Truckee is proud of its story. Wander into town for a latte at Dark Horse Coffee and visit the Old Truckee Hotel, built in 1873. It hosts live music some evenings and makes for a unique historical photo op.

Restaurants in Truckee

Foodies will find Truckee's selection of casual eateries and fine dining spots well worth the visit. For high-end plates that are as amazing to look at as they are to eat, make reservations at Stella. For more casual grub, Cottonwood Restaurant and Bar, formerly a warming hut for mountaineers, is a time-honored establishment in Truckee. Have a hearty pre-ski breakfast at Marty's, a fortifying sandwich at Full Belly Deli, or an indulgent Après-ski tasting at Petra wine and tapas bar.

The California ski scene transforms into a summer playground and then back to a winter wonderland again. There's always something going on in Truckee, and a stay in one of our lakeside vacation rentals is the best way to experience it all. Take a look at our Truckee cabin rentals today!
