Hot Tub - Riverfront Cottage

Pole Creek, named for its incredible location where Pole Creek and the Truckee River meet, allows guests to escape the hustle and bustle of the world.  Just a few miles away from Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows Ski Resort; it's the perfect place to begin a ski adventure in the winter and a relaxing spot for enjoying the beautiful mountains and serenity of the river in the summer. Please note that the internet at this cabin is unreliable because of its location.  The layout and size of this home make it the perfect hideaway, accommodating up to 4 people. The cabin has two bedrooms both located upstairs, one with a full bed and the other a queen bed.  There are two full baths as well, one upstairs that is shared between the bedrooms and the other located downstairs.  The living room has large, plush leather furniture, perfect for curling up on in front of the stone fireplace.  This space also opens to two separate lounging areas that overlook the river, one of which holds a fire pit and propane grill and the other a private hot tub, a relaxing way to spend a Tahoe evening.

Pole Creek is equipped home telephone service, and a flat screen TV with DVD player, high-speed Internet.  Despite feeling as if you have left the world behind, with a location conveniently located between Truckee and Tahoe City, guests are never far from the conveniences of town and all of the activities that Lake Tahoe is known for.  In fact, during Tahoe's warmer months, you will have easy access to rafting/tubing the Truckee River, hiking or biking one of Tahoe's many trails, horseback riding, golfing, kayaking, parasailing, and shopping in Historic Truckee or quaint downtown Tahoe City.  During the winter months, you will be just a few minutes away from World-renowned ski resorts including Squaw Valley (home of the 1960 Olympics) and Alpine Meadows, both a short 5-10 minute drive from the house.  You can also enjoy one of the many snowshoe trails, snowmobile tours, sledding, ice-skating, and dog-sledding programs available nearby. 

At night, you can head into town and enjoy one of the many great restaurants and bars Tahoe City and Truckee have to offer.  Pole Creek is in a remote area, and therefore the only internet access available is a hot spot.  The cost of data is extremely expensive so we do not allow downloading of files or any streaming services.  Internet access is for emailing and web searches only. There is Dish TV for your viewing pleasure.  The homeowner receives alerts every time there is excessive use, and you will be charged up to $100 if this occurs.  We are really sorry about this limitation.

Although 80% of our properties are pet-friendly - this is NOT a pet-friendly property.  Please be respectful of this.  We do not consider service animals pets.  If you bring a dog, you will be subject to a fine and are in breach of contract which could result in being asked to leave the property.

Our family had a fantastic time at this property. The home is beautiful and the setting is even better. The wood finishing details around the home are gorgeous. We loved eating outside over looking the river, soaking in the big hot tub, and playing outside in the open natural spaces which surround the home. There are also no window coverings on the doors/windows in the bedrooms so if you are not a person who enjoys waking up at 5:30 when the sun rises (or having your children wake up), you should pack some sleep masks. We loved everything else about this place so much that I still give it 5 stars despite the uncomfortable beds. That could be easily fixed.

Perfect ski cabin! ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
We had a wonderful stay here. Perfect location for skiing Squaw and Alpine, beautiful setting by the Truckee, and better than the pictures! Service was excellent as well.

Beautiful, bucolic cottage on the banks of the Truckee River
“Beautiful, bucolic cottage on the banks of the Truckee River. What else do I need to say to entice you? Hot tub? Check. Scenery? The best. Host? Responsive and available as needed. We had the best stay experience yet. We were snowed in by an epic snow storm and were allowed a late checkout at no cost. A touch of human compassion is always appreciated. Can't wait to go back.”

Pole Creek Riverfront Cottage, Olympic Valley, Squaw Valley, Hot Tub” The Ideal Retreat ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
This is now the second time that my husband and I have stayed in this cottage, and it was every bit as wonderful as the first visit. Being so close to both Squaw Valley and Truckee, it is ideal for those times when you need to run out for a few things. The cottage is warm and cozy, and stocked with everything one might need. Cannot recommend this place enough!

What a beautiful house and setting
“What a beautiful house and setting! We booked this "cabin" as a very last minute getaway to escape the "Camp" fire smoke in the bay area and it could not have worked out better. The house was clean, comfortable, warm and inviting. The stream was beautiful and we enjoyed listening to it rushing by, especially at night from the hot tub! Add to this the ideal location right down the road from Squaw Valley, Tahoe City, and Truckee and this house is a definite winner. Check in/out was super easy thanks to a lockbox and it had all the basic amenities one would expect. We didn't use the TV or sound system at all, but it looked impressive. The lighting was very warm and cozy but on the dimmer side, which was fine with us. The multitude of light switches was a bit confusing, but no biggie. The furniture was comfortable and the appliances were top notch. Everything was high quality and felt well made. All in all we loved this cozy cottage and would gladly stay again.”

A wonderful mountain vacation!!! ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
This beautiful, modern cabin has the best of all worlds. Secluded, next to the Truckee River is conveniently located as a launching point to all that the Sierras and Lake Tahoe have to offer. We will be back!

The cabin was lovely - truly one of the most beautiful homes
The cabin was lovely - truly one of the most beautiful homes I've ever seen and our Tahoe Moon rep was great - Jaimee. What was impressive is that we had some small issues during our stay and Jaimee really worked to make things better. I'm a fan. Things that could be better, the owner needs to get the wifi fixed.

Awesome location and cutest cottage
Awesome location and cutest cottage. Immaculate condition.

Wonderful setting ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Everything was great. Location, conditions, setting, cleanliness, everything functioning. Good response on any issues. Nice fire place and hot tub. The only minor issue we had was there was no kitchen knife to prep with. As restaurant operators who cook a lot, made it a little difficult.

Beautiful little cottage, great location
I needed a place to stay with my brothers for the Tahoe century bike ride. This place was well appointed and very clean. The location was awesome, we sat for hours in the backyard enjoying the gas fire pit and listening to the Truckee river in the backyard. The hot tub was wonderful after a day of biking and the beds were comfortable. There is some road noise from Hwy 89 when you're outside but we didn't hear it at all in the house. Aside from the internet not working, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and I'll be booking this cottage again.

Amazing Little Getaway
What an incredible little cottage. For me, the small, little cozy cottages are always so much better than the giant getaways. This one had everything we needed. We especially loved the fireplace, hot tub, and outdoor fire pit. When we first arrived, the lock wasn't working but the manager was quick to call a locksmith who arrived not soon after. Everything was clean and ready for us. The beds were comfortable, a little smaller than expected, but still comfy. I loved the outdoor patio in the bedroom on the right. And the kitchen was perfect for a night in. I loved being right on the river. And it's the perfect location. Close to squaw and also a 15-20 minute drive to Tahoe. Everything about this cottage was perfect. I would definitely stay here again. In fact, I plan to if it's available during my next trip!

Storybook Cottage
Better late than never to add a great review! We stayed almost a year ago, and we still think fondly of our stay. It was such a picturesque location, we enjoyed the property inside and out. The kitchen was well appointed, the bathrooms and bedrooms were immaculate. We loved it!

Amazing Cabin
The cabin was amazing. We could not believe the craftsmanship! It was very homey and the hot tub by the river was an excellent way to unwind.

Wonderful little cottage on the river!
This cabin was everything we expected and more. It's a small but perfect little cabin right on the river. Everything was super clean, nice, and well maintained. We spent time fishing in the river and just hanging out on the deck. We didn't end up using the hot tub, but we should have...we will have to next time! I would recommend this cabin for a family with 1-2 kids or for 2 couples (2 nice bedrooms upstairs).

Pole Creek
The cabin was amazing. We could not believe the craftsmanship! It was very homey and the hot tub by the river was an excellent way to unwind. However, we arrived and there was no internet or TV. We called Direct TV and the owner had not paid the bill. Tahoe Moon got that taken care of quickly, however the the internet was never fixed, because no one told us we had to leave the key in the box to get service. We thought they would use the owner's box.

Pole Creek
Pole Creek Cabin was incredibly well done in a great location on the Truckee River. The fire pit and hot tub added to the outdoor environment. Hope to stay there again.

Pole Creek
Pole creek was the perfect cabin! It's in an excellent location, yet yoi feel totally secluded. Beautiful home, well furnished, and tons of attention to detail. Jill and Brittany at Tahoe Moon were awesome to schedule with!

Pole Creek
I stayed here with my brothers for the Tahoe Century bike ride in September. The cottage was clean, well furnished and just as described. The only flaw was the lack of internet (to working at all) since there was no cell service, this was problem. The gas BBQ worked fine but is OLD.Overall we enjoyed the stay and would book this unit again.

Pole Creek Cabin
Tahoe Moon staff were awesome. Met all of our needs. Replied to questions or concerns immediately. The property is very nice, but did have a few issues. The lights need a diagram on what controls which lights. Way overdone for a smaller cabin. The windows could use some curtains. There is no privacy from neighboring residences. Also, could never get more that static on the stereo. That needs an instruction book as well. Otherwise it is a great rental property. It is a bit smaller than what the pictures show, but was still adequate for 2 couples. All in all, we had a great time.
