I stayed at this house for a ski trip. The house is great but I had to spend too much time calling customer service. Here are the things that went wrong:
- No WiFi- that was a huge issue for me as I had to work at night and could not because of the missing WiFi. I called Turnkey right away on the first day to fix it. Clearly the router was broken. They blamed it on AT&T and did not manage to get it fixed the entire time. The second day I was on the phone with Turnkey many times and talked to many different people, with no result. The description said WiFi included. Do not believe it.
- The resort passes were not there. Another call to Turnkey.
- be aware that the Rec center charges $12/person to enter, so it gets expensive. The description said it was $12 for up to 4 people, not $12/person.
- There were a lot of expired food items in the house. My favorite: a bottle of hot sauce that had expired in 2008, 10 years ago.
- There was a lot of dust and cob webs all around the house.

We loved our weekend in Truckee. The cabin was wonderful for our grandkids. The cabin is nice, although we were a little disappointed in the maintenance of it. The carpet and upholstery were in need of a good cleaning. There were small things that needed repair or replacement. The kitchen was very disorganized. Cupboards were junky, poor cookware. Looked like old junk left behind. The BBQ was not in great shape. The biggest disappointment was the condition of the back yard. It did not look at all like the picture as it was all overgrown with weeds. It is a great place but could use some TLC.

Adam G. Our family journeyed to Truckee for a relaxing week away, and that hope was fulfilled beautifully. The house is on a quite street backed against woods. My kids (city kids) had a great time jumping over the streams in the backyard and running among the trees.

The house itself was disappointing and poorly maintained. We showed up to find the kitchen faucet held together with duct tape (literally!) and leaking. By the 2nd day the leak was worse and we called Turnkey. During family lunch (in the middle of a pandemic), the handyman walks in unannounced and unmasked. WTF? Not impressed. Turnkey did their best to make it right, but the house really could use some basic upkeep and repair.

Melissa H. Fantastic stay. The only recommendation would be to update the Queen beds in the two bedrooms but other than that it was the perfect place for a quick getaway.
