Truckee is named after a Native American Chief who encountered the first Europeans to cross the Sierra Nevada range. Hence, the heart of this town on the California-Nevada border is still very much in the Old West. Its soul is tied eternally to the mountains and alpine lakes. Truckee is a place where the wilderness is everyone’s back door. Trail running and cycling are as popular as whitewater rafting and kayaking. Skiing and snowboarding are wintertime staples. Fishing in the reservoir and Truckee River is a year-round activity and serious anglers can expect a healthy haul of trout and salmon. Make some time for this beautiful mountain getaway in your vacation plans. If you need a place to stay in, read on for the best Airbnb vacation rentals in Truckee, California.
Imagine staring out of a picture window while seated on a plump couch as a gas fireplace emits its warm glow. That could be you in a few days if you book this Airbnb in downtown Truckee. The host took charge of recent renovations to add a patio and ensure every single detail contributes to your comfort and convenience. It’ll be an exciting few days as you plan meals to cook in the chef’s kitchen and tick off one adventure after another in Lake Tahoe and surrounding areas.

Living at 7,000 feet (2,133.6 meters) above sea level for a few days means you have to be mindful of the weather. For a vacation that prepares you for a stay-in scenario due to inclement weather, choose accommodations that represent the Tahoe lifestyle. This Airbnb sleeps four guests and keeps you snug under warm covers. An electric fireplace is available to supplement the central heating system if the weather turns. There is a balcony where you can see the slopes, which is just a stone’s throw away. Ask the host about ski facilities and lockers in the area if skiing is your main agenda in Truckee.
