#1 – A new clean & safe vacation experience

Professional Property Management companies welcome you back to Truckee. While lodging was closed for leisure travelers (open for business and essential workers), these locally owned and operated businesses developed and implemented operational plans and cleaning protocols in observation of the Stage 3 industry guidance. Ensuring that you, your family, and friends have a comfortable, clean stay while preventing the spread of COVID-19 is the highest priority. Disinfecting hard and soft surfaces, providing contactless check-in and check-out, cleaning appliances, pots, pans, etc. between stays, supplying the rental with additional soap, hand sanitizer, and disinfecting wipes, and much more – are all potential measures you can expect.

#2 – Stock up on groceries & cook meals at home

The most obvious benefit to renting a mountain home? Access to a full kitchen. You’ll save money which you could put towards an extra day in Truckee or a fun guided activity, like rock climbing! Best of all, you’ll have time to slow down and share a meal with family and friends. Pick a couple of new recipes, or turn to your trusted favorites and savor a home-cooked meal at the end of a day spent exploring. 

15 family-friendly recipes you can make in your vacation rental.

When you arrive here, there are many Truckee grocery options including specialty stores, neighborhood markets, and more. Want to create a farm to table meal? Order a harvest box from the Tahoe Food Hub ahead of time and pick it up when you arrive. Looking for a California wine to pair with your meal? Head to Uncorked Truckee or The Pour House Wine Shop.

#3 – Spend more time with family & close friends

Get everyone together under the same roof on your next trip to Truckee. When you book one of Truckee’s spacious mountain homes, you’ll have plenty of room to spread out. Pay attention to how many people each rental accommodates. Most of Truckee’s mountain homes have several bedrooms and additional pullout couches to accommodate your whole family. Plus, many are pet friendly so you don’t have to leave Buster at home! 

#4 – Disconnect from the news, reconnect with nature

Need a break? When you’re ready to disconnect from the news, your devices, and reconnect with nature, head to Truckee. The quiet, mountain setting is perfect for unwinding and getting grounded. And there’s no better spot for this than a mountain home. Just imagine: sipping your coffee on the deck while listening to birds chirping in the early morning, walking out your door to explore nearby trails, counting shooting stars from the backyard before you head to bed. These are the unique experiences of a mountain home. Enjoy peace, solitude, in the ideal base camp for adventure – a mountain home.  

#5 – Your backyard: a magical forest playground for kids

Best of all, families with small kids will love having an outdoor playground right out the backdoor. Truckee’s mountain homes are tucked into high elevation pine forests and offer up many opportunities for play and exploration. Make a tree fort, collect pine cones, or play a game of tag… get creative! Parents will love relaxing outside on the deck of their rental home while kids get their hands dirty playing outside.

Book a Professionally Managed Mountain Home

An alternative to booking a professionally managed mountain home is to book an independent home rental on, or on Airbnb or VRBO.
