The space

The Town of Truckee charges a 12% Transient Occupancy Tax (TOT). We will now be charging our guests the TOT upon arrival, so we have reduced our nightly Airbnb charge to offset the cost to you, our guest. Upon booking, we will let you know the TOT total due.

We offer a private bedroom with queen size bed, and private bathroom on the lower floor of our super insulated passive solar home, built with our own hands. There is a small private deck off the bedroom for your use.

You must be comfortable with stairs. Our living area is on the main floor upstairs. You will enter through the front door of our house on the second floor, then down the stairs to your room and bath. You are welcome upstairs any time, and also on the upper deck when weather permits.

A breakfast of homemade granola, with fresh fruit and yogurt or milk is available in the morning. Along with your choice of tea, coffee, espresso or a steamy latte, and juice. Please let us know if you are vegan and we will provide a non-dairy choice.

Our home is located in a neighborhood with large parcels, so you will enjoy views of mountains and trees, not neighbors.

Our dog, Mayzee, is a sweet 20 pound mixed terrier rescue. She may bark initially, but settles down quickly and is very friendly. She is not allowed in the guest room.

We are dog friendly hosts, Mayzee loves doggie company, and charge an additional $10/night for your furry companions. We do offer dog sitting when we are available for $25/day. Please check out our house rules for additional information on bringing your pet.

Please be aware that we do not offer kitchen privileges, but you are welcome to bring in prepared food to eat at the dining room table or on the main deck weather permitting.

Guest access

While we do not offer full kitchen use, we would like to make your stay here as enjoyable as possible. You are welcome to bring prepared food back to the house and eat in the dining room or on the main deck. You may use the microwave, and we have hot water on the stove.

Interaction with guests

We enjoy meeting our guests and chatting with them. We also respect guests privacy, and allow you to direct us as to how much interaction you want with us.

If you decide to book with us or make an inquiry, please tell us something about yourself , and who is coming with you, and your plans for your time in the area. Knowing something about each other helps both of us to feel comfortable, and helps us to make your visit more enjoyable.

We encourage guests to inquire and ask questions. However, we do get many inquires and some people put out multiple inquires when looking for a place to stay, so it just becomes impossible to hold our room from an inquiry. For this reason we accept reservation requests on a first come first served basis.

Please don't leave any food or fragrant items in your car. It is also a good idea to lock it at night. We have had some recent bear activity in our area. We love the bears and want to discourage any behavior that might endanger them.

We have a wood floor and stairway, so we ask that you please remove your shoes before going downstairs to the guest bedroom and bath. You may want to bring slippers, or we do have some slipper socks available to help keep your feet warm.

We do not allow skis or snowboards in the house. If you can't leave them in your car, please ask us and we will find a place for you to put them.

Please keep doors closed when heaters are on in bedroom and bathroom.

Turn off all lights when not being used.

Please conserve water. We are on a water meter.

If you bring your dog you must keep it with you unless you make arrangements with us to watch it. We will try to accommodate you, but we are not always available to watch your pets. We have a fee of $10/dog/day, and $25/day to pet sit. Please always clean up your pet messes.

We offer breakfast between 7:30 and 9:30. Please let us know approx what time is best for you. If you would like a different time please ask, and we will try to accommodate you.

Is this spot on your list of places to potentially stay in Truckee? Book it now! Suzi and Jack are warm and welcoming but have my girlfriend and I plenty of privacy. The room is private from the rest of the house and has a small deck with a beautiful view of the woods out back. The bed is comfortable, room is implacably clean, house was quiet, and a continental breakfast was an added bonus. This one exceeded our expectations. Thanks Suzi and Jack!

We had a great stay at Suzi and Jax. They were friendly, accommodating and gracious enough to watch our dog while we attended a wedding for the visit. The room was private and clean and the breakfast was perfect!

I LOVED my stay with Suzi and Jack in Truckee. I was there for a wedding and Suzi and Jack worked with me to arrange my arrival time so I could rest before heading out for the late afternoon festivities. The room is spotless, the pine-filled view is beautiful, the bed is super comfortable and the bathroom perfect. Suzi and Jack have thought of everything, from Brita filtered water next to the bed to fun tins in the bathroom holding cotton balls, Q-tips and band-aids, to a basket of sox in the closet for those who forget their own in the middle of summer! What more could a traveler want? Suzi and Jack are delightful hosts and bird lovers so there is plenty of activity to watch from the sweet little deck outside your room. Suzi's homemade granola was scrumptious and Jack's woodwork - including the bed frame - is gorgeous. I can't wait to go back!!!

Lovely quiet room with peaceful view. You feel like you are nestled into the crook of a tree gazing out on birdies and busy chipmunks. Suzi & Jack provide a quiet sanctuary and a great breakfast! Very enjoyable.

Really beautiful home in a great location--we absolutely loved our stay in Truckee! Suzi and Jack were great hosts who provided a lovely breakfast each morning. We enjoyed chatting with them in the mornings, and they provided great recommendations about where to eat and where to hike. The room was comfortable and clean, and we enjoyed sitting on the deck off of the room in the evenings. We look forward to staying with Suzi and Jack again in the future!

Suzi & Jack User ProfileSuzi & Jack is a superhost.

We have been hosting on Airbnb since 2011. It has given us the opportunity to meet some very nice and interesting people. We love sharing our home and this beautiful area in which we live. We can help you with any questions you may have. We are familiar with good hiking spots, ski areas, dining options and more.

We also respect your privacy, and allow you to direct us as to how much interaction you want with us.

We are long time Truckee residents, 30 plus years. We are avid hikers and back packers, and like to kayak on the lakes too. Jack enjoys fly fishing. We would be glad to direct you to some of our favorite lakes, streams and hikes.

Jack was a ski instructor for 15 years, 9 yrs at Alpine Meadows, but we ski for fun now days. We both also enjoy cross country skiing and snow shoeing, and ice skating when the conditions are right.

Although we haven't done it lately we both really enjoy scuba diving.

Jack has a wood shop and builds cabinets and furniture. Suzi has a floral studio on our property and loves to garden. You may catch her doing flowers for a wedding in the Tahoe area.

We also like relaxing and sipping lattes in the morning, and wine in the evening, on our deck in the summer and by the fire in Winter. Come up and join us!
