Availability & Booking

The Log House is located in Truckee, CA just 20 miles north of Lake Tahoe.  This property is located at 7,250 feet so winter weather conditions can get challenging at this altitude.  A 4-wheel drive vehicle or all-wheel drive vehicle with snow tires is the only safe way to get around on some of our winter days!  The property looks directly across at the top of Northstar ski resort only 14 miles away.  Within only 20 miles are multiple world class ski resorts including Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, Northstar, Sugarbowl, Diamond Peak, and Mt. Rose.  The town of Truckee is a classic "old west" railroad town right off Interstate Highway 80 between Sacramento, CA and Reno, NV.

From Bay Area / Sacramento:  Take Hwy 80 East to the Donner Pass Road exit, Exit 184.  Turn left onto Donner Pass Road, cross back over the freeway and proceed past the Shell station.  At the first light, turn left onto Northwoods Blvd. Stay straight at the Northwoods/Northwoods stop sign and go up the hill. Turn right onto Fjord, left onto Alder Creek. Turn left on Skislope and drive to the very top. Just after Glacier Way you will come over the crest and the house will be on the right hand side -- 14800 Skislope Way.  Please drive a 4X4 Vehicle in Winter Conditions! The house is accessed through the garage so the garage code will be provided after your reservation is approved.

From Reno:  Take Hwy 80 West to the Donner Pass Road exit, Exit 184.  Turn right onto Donner Pass Road and proceed past the Shell Station.  Then follow the same directions as above.
