What To Expect

Check-In = 4PM

Check-Out = 11AM

What you should pack will depend on whether you arrive during the Summer or the Winter. Truckee Tahoe is a playground of activities for all ages, so pack according to season and planned activities, and come prepared to face the Winter Elements, including Traffic Delays on HWY 80. If snow is expected, have a full tank of gas, snacks, and water on hand, and keep an eye on Caltrans!

Once your vacation is booked, you will receive the following emails (or messages if Airbnb):

  1. Booking Confirmation.
  2. Docu-Sign Guest Agreement, which must be filled and submitted within 48 hours.
  3. Check-In/Out Details, 5 days prior to arrival (PDF attached).
  4. STR Rules, imposed by Town & County. Emailed 2X (2 Days & 1 Day prior to Arrival).
