The Space

This room has 4 comfortable new beds. They are available as a room (all beds) or individually. We recently redid this room to accommodate out of town guests. There is plenty of space to spread out. A wood stove provides mountain ambiance and warmth. The wet bar area allows you to have access to sink for cleaning up and staying hydrated. Shared newly remodeled bathrooms (2), with full tub/shower(s) and heated floors. Stay in the room and cuddle up, or come downstairs and socialize. Shared kitchen, living and dining areas. Heated area for drying gear, and keeping boots warm. Waxing bench in garage, HOT TUB and WIFI too. Plenty of off street parking.

This location in Truckee is walking distance to a bus stop where the local transit system (TART) and Northstar ski area buses stop. It is 15-20 minutes driving time to all North Tahoe ski/ride areas. Ride share with us to Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, Sugar Bowl and Royal Gorge (our passes). We would be happy to pick you up in Truckee at Train/Bus station. Avoid driving in the snow, and avoid the traffic jam to and from Bay area (website hidden) feature is that it is walking distance to the microbrewery.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Meredith and Lou's place is gorgeous and cosy. It's a perfect short driving distance from Alpine, Squaw and NorthStar, and there's even night skiing at Boreal about a 20 min drive away. The hosts are lovely and their dog is really sweet.

  • I had a very comfortable stay at Meredith and Lou's place. The dog, Tanaia, is very sweet and friendly. There are two bathrooms, and I never had a problem finding a free one.

    The house is 30 min walk from the main Truckee bus depot. When returning to the house, one can hitch a ride back half the way from the gas station near the bus depot.

  • I've been to Meredith's twice and I have enjoyed both stays very much. Meredith has a beautiful and very functional house, which is all shared, very comfortable, convenient and friendly.

    I've had great discussions in the evenings with the other guests staying (4 in the shared room) and with Meredith which makes it all fun and relaxing. I've stayed here while skiing at Tahoe, very workable, good location.

  • (email hidden) to stay in Truckee! Meredith and Lou are so welcoming and friendly. I've been using airbnb quite a bit lately and this has to be one of my best experiences yet.

  • Meredith is awesome and her house is warm and welcoming! She was very accommodating & the stay was very pleasant. Meredith was very fast to respond and kept me updated on everything; overall communication went very smooth. The room is very nice and large. The bathroom even has heated floors and everything was clean! I am looking forward to more visits and highly recommend her!

  • Meredith and her husband are the warmest, sweetest and most welcoming guests I could imagine. They even shared their Thanksgiving dinner with me after I came in exhausted from snowboarding. They have a true commitment to sharing, both cultural and of resources. They used to own a bookstore so the room comes chockful of amazing books... I love this place!

  • I had a great time while staying with Meredith & Lou. They were very warm & hospitable hosts, always ready to help me get the most out of the stay. I had the pleasure of meeting some other travelers at the house as well & they were all amazing people & athletes. I would absolutely stay here again! Thanks Meredith & Lou! See you next year!

  • Meredith and Lou were great hosts. They were super friendly and had great tips about the area from a "locals" perspective. The room was very comfortable and the neighborhood was centrally located with easy access to downtown Truckee. I would definitely stay here again.

  • I only wish I could have stayed longer; with a beautiful backyard (I wistfully stared out the window), a luxury hotel type bathroom (with his and hers sinks), comfortable, cool beds and even gracious hosts willing to accommodate a 2:45am coffee start, it's going to be easy to make an excuse to come back and fulfill that wish! Thank you so much Meredith!

  • Meredith and Bill were lovely hosts. Their house is so warm and inviting. The room was clean/well cared for, the amenities were better than my own home and the neighborhood is very quiet. The house is walking distance to a few restaurants, which is a great bonus. Beautiful setting and garden in summer. I would definitely stay here again.

Meredith recently retired form the fire service, after 30 years as a woman in very non traditional occupation. Adventurous and athletic, I'm interested in meeting interesting people and seeing new places. I've hosted 2 foreign exchange students for their US high school senior year, and found this to be a very rewarding experience. I have been a long standing member and patron of International youth hosteling. I consider myself very flexible and engaging. I'm in a very long term relationship with a wonderful man, who may be your contact when I am traveling. I have two spectacular off spring, who are both off on their own adventures, and now the large house in beautiful Truckee Ca is pretty empty. I've always wanted to open a hostel to host budget travelers, and now, thanks to airbnb, that might just be possible.
