Location, Location, Location
Located north of Lake Tahoe, historic Truckee is nestled in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. A bit quieter than Tahoe, it offers the same stunning scenery and year-round, fun activities for everyone. What once started out as a stopping place for wagon trains and then a small railroad stop is now a tourist destination that has managed to hang on to its small-town, Old West appeal.
Choose VRBO Truckee rentals perched on the mountainside with views of the surrounding snowcapped, rugged mountains, or maybe a view of bustling historic downtown Truckee with its Old West charm and lively nightlife is more your style. No matter your preference, we’ve got them all.
Book a luxurious vacation home facing Donner Lake, Truckee River, or other local waters. These elegant homes boast amazing views of both the water and the mountains, especially when viewed from the private decks. Step foot in the door of your vacation home, gaze through the bright interiors to the view beyond, and you’ll start to relax immediately. You don’t even need the hot tub to relax—but it’ll be a welcome addition anyway!
During winter months when everything is covered in snow, you’re just a short trip away from ski lifts and snowy trails. Get your fill of downhill skiing or take a cross-country ski trip across quiet, snow-laden meadows and through whispering forests. Channel your inner child and go sledding or tubing down the mountain or stay in adult mode and take a moonlight sleigh ride with your sweetie.
There are mountain trails to hike and bike, where depending on the season you’ll need snow bikes, mountains bikes, or fat tire bikes, and hiking boots or snowshoes. Take the trail to the nearby Martis Peak Fire Lookout for its panoramic view. It’s worth the trip, whether you hike or snowshoe up. Spend the day at Lake Donner, playing on its beaches, tennis courts, volleyball courts and more. Relax while you bike, stroll, or jog along the Truckee River on the Truckee River Legacy Trail. This accessible trail is dog-friendly too.
Donner Memorial State Park is dedicated to the travelers who crossed this area on the hunt for bigger and better things, including the ill-fated Donner-Reed party. The Park’s Visitor’s Center features exhibits on the Donner Party, local Native Americans, and the builders of the First Transcontinental Railroad. The Park also fronts Donner Lake, has a short hiking trail, and the Schallenberger Ridge with glacier-carved rock formations. It’s also home to the Emigrant Trail Museum and Pioneer Monument. This relatively small park is deeply steeped in history, has amazing views and is worth a trip.
During warmer months, hit the water. Take a lazy swim in Lake Donner, or parasail, jet ski, or water ski if you crave a little action. Fish from one of the 30+ public piers at the lake or from your kayak and catch rainbow and cutthroat trout as well as Kokanee salmon. Tired of calm, crystal clear lakes? You can kayak, tube, and fish on the Truckee and Little Truckee Rivers.
You’d be surprised at the number of golf courses in and around Truckee. With the higher altitude and the beautiful backdrop of the Sierra Mountains, these courses are a dream. Try the Coyote Moon Golf Course (a Brad Bell designed course), the Tahoe Donner Golf Club, or the Old Greenwood Golf Course, just to name a few.
Indoor Fun and More
Downtown Truckee is home to historic buildings, art galleries and shops, restaurants serving a wide variety of tastes and treats, beer pubs, wine bars, and tasting rooms like the Truckee River Winery. While the entire town is steeped in train history, railroad history buffs will especially love spending time in the Truckee Railroad Museum. Easy to find, it’s right next to the old train station.
