Quite Possibly The Best Place to Stay In Truckee
Enjoy A Pleasant Stay The two-story Victorian is perched atop a small hill above Truckee and is easy to spot for its size and welcoming yellow color. The front porch, adorned with gingerbread and Victorian detail, has rocking chairs where visitors can relax and take in the view from up high. Across the river is Truckee’s first ski hill and below is the quaint and charismatic town of Truckee.
Inside, warm hues of deep gold and rich greens are the backdrops for an impressive collection of antique furnishings.

The entryway is adorned with gorgeous Lincrusta wainscoting, which is original to the house and striking to behold flanking the grand staircase.
