  • Matt is an awesome host. Very accommodating with his space! We stayed with friends for a wedding in Truckee and the house was in a lovely location. The rooms are spacious and well kept, kitchen is stocked with appliances and dishes. He also put (email hidden) to the house that helped us out a lot. I would definitely stay again. Thanks so much for the hospitality, Matt!

  • Matthew, the host, was an absolute pleasure to work with. He replied within minutes during all of our email exchanges and has an incredibly friendly demeanor. The house met our expectations and then some and was very clean when we arrived. We particularly appreciated the updated appliances in the kitchen and entertainment system. Thanks, Matthew!

  • We had a great stay in Truckee for 2 nights ! Matt's house was clean, furnished well and cozy. Great backyard as well. It was a perfect setting for our ski holiday. Matt was courteous and very professional and we would love to come back for our next visit to Truckee/Tahoe.

  • 10 of us came up here for a ski trip and stayed at Matt's place. It was spacious, comfortable, and clean- also in a great location! We are all excited to stay here again in the future. Thanks Matt!

  • Matthew's cabin was perfect for the six of us! We thoroughly enjoyed staying here for the weekend. Conveniently located near downtown Truckee and we spent a day snowboarding/skiing at Northstar, which was only a 15 minute drive. Matthew was extremely helpful and even our two dogs were welcomed as guests! The cabin was beautiful. Thanks, Matthew!

  • This is such a beautiful and spacious home! Everything was as listed and in wonderful condition. Our kids enjoyed the deck and exploring the open area in the back. My husband and I loved waking up to the view from the upstairs bedroom. We are looking forward to staying here again in the future!

  • This house is wonderful! It is quiet and spacious and offers accommodation suitable for a couple, a family or a group of friends. The kitchen is very well equipped, the dining table is vast, and the sitting area is furnished with classic and comfortable seating. The gas stove looks like a real log fire and makes the living area feel extra cosy on chilly days. I loved the extensive decking facing south into a mature wood. Guests can eat outside there, or lounge on the comfortable wicker furniture. I was lucky enough to be given the upstairs double room with the vast bed, balcony, and whirlpool bath. The house had everything we needed. It had a minimal feel to it, yet it was luxurious. Wow!

  • 10 of us went up for the weekend to Tahoe and we couldn't be happier with Matt's house. It was great being able to relax with the fireplace on while watching on the big TV, the sleeping arrangements were comfortable, and everything worked well. It's also only 15 minutes away from Northstar, and 5-10 minutes away from a bunch of restaurants. We'll definitely try to stay there again next time we go up!

  • Matthew's place is awesome. Clean, modern and well laid out. Convenient to the major ski areas and the Tahoe Donner recreation center.

    Matt is very clear and quick in his responses. A pleasure to deal with.
