You'll find a small armoire in the closet area, and a suitcase stand in the room.*Bicycles, skis and other gear can be stowed on the large, Private patio, and there is a ski rack.*The Trout Creek Trail is a scenic paved walkway/bike trail that leads to downtown Truckee. The trailhead is short drive down Northwoods Blvd.*Enjoy all of the wonderful activities in the beautiful Sierra year-round just outside the door!!

Guest access

Guests will be provided with their access code to the room. The stairs to the room are on the right on the porch, and down the staircase to the private patio and entrance to the room.*

There is a motion activated light on the driveway. The light switches for the porch and stairs are on the wall to the left as you step onto the porch. Controls for these same lights are also at the bottom of the staircase to the left as you reach the landing. The switch to control the patio light is next to the glass door. We recommend carrying a flashlight at night, and keeping a couple on-hand in the room in the event of a power outage.

Interaction with guests

We've tried our best to see that you have what you need, but we'll be available by text, phone or email as quickly as practical should something arise.

Other things to note

On-street parking is prohibited by the Town of Truckee during the snow season from November 1 through April 30th and doing so may subject your vehicle to citation or towing by the City of Truckee. During snow season, guests will be allowed one vehicle parking only and asked to park their vehicle as far to the left of the driveway as practical while leaving some room to access the brown metal bear-proof trash box. There is no other vehicle access or parking available on the property. Because of the elevation there may be snow and/or ice on the street, driveway and walkways even when it’s clear nearby. We’d recommend to always be prepared for driving and walking on some snow and ice at the property during the extended winter season. Please use extra caution while walking where snow or ice may be present and and make sure your car is properly equipped for winter driving. Highway conditions and chain/4wd and other general information can be found on the Cal Trans website. Local road information is available on the Town of Truckee website. There are bears and other animals throughout the populated areas throughout the Tahoe/Truckee region. Seeing them is pretty rare, but to discourage interaction between people and wildlife, it's recommended to not store food in the car or outside even in a container, and please do not leave the front door to your room open while you’re away. There is no smoking permitted on the property, no candles or other open flame, nor heated cooking devices or anything else that can cause fire.

The photos and over all listing is accurate, only you are surprised when you walk in to see how cozy and bright the space is with it's surrounding windows and cafe-like kitchenette. The space is warm and welcoming and easy to access. Everything you need is included this studio (stocked bathroom, kitchenette, bedroom), although John is there if you need anything. We had our family of four sleep here and it was a perfect fit. We wished we could have stayed longer to experience the yard and sit on the porch with the deer in the morning. However, it's a great reason for us to return, which we will soon. Thanks John.

My boyfriend and I spent two nights at this beautiful space and couldn’t be happier with what was provided. We were very kindly greeted by the hosts but after that they were great with providing personal space. The room, bathroom and kitchen were stocked with everything needed and more! Even in 30 degree weather it was easy to stay warm and the space had such a cozy, welcoming feel overall. We had no trouble finding our way down to the entrance and using the keypad was very easy. I had such an enjoyable trip to Tahoe and I’m glad I found an equally amazing place to stay!
