Family-friendly apartments in Truckee
Our old Railroad Bunkhouse (circa 1870s) in historic Truckee, is still a work in progress. But downstairs is the completed Huddle-Up studio; quaint and cozy. There are two double beds; a Murphy bed and the Huddle Up loft (named by our granddaughter), both with fresh linens, and down comforters. The full bathroom has an antique footed tub with shower, clean towels and accessories.
The kitchenette is perfect for simple fare. A coffee pot, microwave, toaster oven and refrigerator (no stove) compliment this galley-type kitchen. TV, DVD/VCR, WiFi. Parking and snow removal provided.
The location is excellent for those who are looking to enjoy the shops, art studios, wine tasting and restaurants in historic downtown Truckee. We are located in the old Brickelltown neighborhood, across from the railroad, just a 3-minute walk to Commercial Row and the AMTRAK station. Nordic and downhill ski resorts including Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, Northstar, Tahoe Donner, Donner Ski Ranch, Boreal and Sugar Bowl are a short drive. Donner Lake, the Truckee River, Lake Tahoe and the Tahoe National Forest offer abundant recreation alternatives in close proximity. The Legacy Trail along the Truckee River, for walkers, runners and bicyclists, is a short distance from the front door.

We have lived here for over 30 years, on site, upstairs. If you have any questions please ask us. We look forward to your inquiries. Val and Buff/ Railroad Bunkhouse/The Huddle Up

5/5 Excellent

Truckee Central
The unit is in the center of Truckee, an easy walk from every restaurant and shop in the town. I loved the comfy Murphy bed and, if you have kids, the sleeping nook off the kitchen would be so much fun. Highly recommend.

5/5 Excellent

Cozy spot perfect for weekend getaway
We loved the location right in downtown Truckee. Easy access to both Donner and Northstar for skiing. And I really appreciated all the minor amenities including kitchen condiments with tea and hot chocolate, a plentiful VHS selection, and some coloring books for the kids.

Perfect location, cozy apartment
All we wanted, and more! Val was an amazing host, very responsive and clear with instructions. The apartment is great; a (nearly) full kitchen setup (plenty for light breakfast prep), two cozy beds, and a nice touch was the extensive vhs collection to end the day watching movies. Every little detail was there-earplugs, coffee, cocoa…We had a lovely stay. Will be back again!
