At the very end of a quiet road, you will find this wonderful river front retreat. The property has an incredible outdoor space with a river view, hot tub, two decks and a two level garden that all face the Truckee River.
Quiet, peaceful. In nature. There are hiking trails along the river that lead to a trail going up to the Tahoe Rim Trail. The house is close to the bike path that follows the river to Tahoe City and beyond. We are located at the entrance to Squaw Valley (the ski resort) and directly on the river. It is 7 miles south of Truckee and 5 miles from Tahoe City (and Lake Tahoe).
Relax in the great room with soaring ceilings, a gas burning stove and huge windows with a stunning river view. The great room has a sofa bed.
This large 2,000 sq foot log cabin has a kitchen with a dining area that seats 8 and 4 more at the breakfast bar. The well equipped kitchen has a large gas range and dishwasher. There is a washer/dryer and an iron.
There are four bedrooms and three full baths. The master suite has a queen sized bed, a double futon couch, private deck with views of the river and full bath with a shower. The second bedroom has a queen bed and lovely views of the grounds and river. The third bedroom has a double bunk with a single on top and a pull-out trundle below (sleeps 4 total). The guest bath is a full bath with bath tub. A third bathroom has a glass block shower, sink and toilet. The fourth bedroom has a daybed with a pull-out trundle. This room has 3 doors and can be opened up.
In the living room are two huge couches, one is a queen sofa sleeper and the other will comfortably sleep a single person.
The hot tub is nestled in fir trees and can be accessed through either deck. Lounging on the lower lawn, right at the river is magical. The main deck has patio furniture for dining alfresco and views of the river. The main cabin is all one level on the second floor of the house. There is an in-law unit on the lower level with a quiet female caretaker who is very nice and will stay out of your way.
Guests have access to the entire house, 2 decks, laundry, hot tub and the upper and lower lawns down to the river. There is plenty of parking. There is no access to the garage.
Interaction with guests

Other things to note:
There is an older single full-time tenant in a separate unit below the house. She usually stays out of the way but can help out as needed.
