Here is your chance for you & 7 friends to enjoy one week at a beautiful vacation home in luxurious Martis Camp, near Truckee, California!

The house sits on four acres and backs up to the Tahoe National Forest. It offers spectacular views, wonderful fresh mountain air, privacy and luxury for a large family or group of friends. Martis Camp is located just outside the town of Truckee. Truckee is a fun western mountain town with great restaurants, shops and galleries, and the Union Pacific Railroad running right through the center of town.

In the summer, the main street of Truckee is closed for Truckee Thursdays, a wonderful open-air gathering with music, food and the wares of local artisans. The area has endless summertime activities, ranging from soaring flights to horseback rides to boat rentals on Lake Tahoe, which is 12 miles away. In winter, there’s skiing at Northstar Mountain and snowmobile rides. The area has fantastic hiking on trails inside and near National Forest land.

The house has four bedrooms, accommodating eight people. There are four bedrooms for adults. Two have king-size beds; two have queen-sized beds. Each has a private bathroom, and the four bedrooms are completely separated from each other, on four different levels of the house, with great privacy for each. The bedrooms have small, private outside decks, too. There is also a “bunk room” with six beds for kids, and there’s a separate large bathroom and playroom outside the bunk room.
