“Russel Valley Retreat” looks out over a pristine valley, with a Sierra Mountain range backdrop. The valley is famous for the emigrant trail, the cabin was once owned by a rock climbing legend Warren Harding, but the true magic of this special retreat lies within the cozy times by the wood burning stove, the gorgeous sunsets & the nighttime endless starry skies. Extra bonus includes long walks in any direction from the cabin front door, bird and wildlife viewing, hiking, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, mountain biking or a short drive to Truckee restaurants & shopping, nearby Ski Areas and beautiful Lake Tahoe.
The cabin is small and very efficient with a fully stocked kitchen and two beds (queen and twin) and one bathroom. The wood burning stove is the primary heat. There are gorgeous valley views from the windows and the deck. There is no TV and the internet is very limited, this cabin is for someone looking to “unplug”. A perfect winter retreat for writing, reading, skiing, art work and hiking. Come relax, get outdoors and refuel. Sierra Hot Springs is only 30 miles away, downtown Truckee is 12 miles, Northstar is 18 miles and Squaw Valley is 23 miles away from the cabin located on Russel Valley Road.
“Book this cabin! Missy’s cabin is the most cozy, picturesque, delightful little retreat. If you are looking to get somewhat off the grid, this cabin is for you. Just far enough from town that you are disconnected, but close enough to go in for dinner and shopping. Amazing walks right outside your front door (literally), and the best four-legged hosts you can ask for. Missy was so wonderful and responsive and was there to get me checked in and the fire started. She is just up the hill if you need her and completely delightful company! I can’t say enough good things about Russel Valley Retreat, and I can’t wait to return!”
Our Russel Valley cabin has all the benefits of feeling remote, while still having proximity to everything you might need for a special winter get-away (12 miles from downtown Truckee).
