For full-time, family Tahoe living, look no further than one of the most popular and unique communities for year-round fun—the Glenshire Devonshire Resident Association. Located at the east end of Truckee’s historical district, Glenshire is the gateway to the mountain lifestyle that many families seek.

Glenshire is Family-oriented

Your family deserves to experience the best of what Tahoe has to offer. Let the little one learn to swim at the association’s pool, and let the older kids host pool parties for birthdays and summer fun. With a nature trail close to home, the kids will love Saturday morning hikes or leisurely evening strolls. The Glenshire Elementary School is within arm’s reach for a hassle-free commute and top-notch education. For adults, the proximity to award-winning restaurants and events in Truckee and Reno offers incredible possibilities for all personalities.

Glenshire Equestrian Opportunities

Cowboys and cowgirls alike can experience their own “home on the range” with close access to equestrian areas. Certain zones within Glenshire are welcome to corral horses. With nearby horse trails, including the expansive Tahoe National Forest, equestrian access so close to home means more time riding and less time having to deal with third-party equestrian centers. Notable horseback trails in the Tahoe National Forest include the Five Lakes Trail, Penner Lake Trail, and Section L of the Pacific Crest Trail. To view the Truckee area’s horse properties for sale.

Proximity to Reno

The small-town charm of Glenshire and Truckee soothes the soul, but when the big city calls, the answer can be found in no time. Located near Highway 80, the east end of Glenshire is only a 30-minute drive from the bustling city of Reno, Nevada. Discover a variety of growing restaurants, brand-name shopping, family entertainment, and more. Noteworthy fun includes the National Automobile Museum, scenic Truckee River Walk, popular casinos, and the Mt. Rose Ski Area. The best part? The short commute home after a day of big city fun.

Glenshire Pizza Company and Shops

The dining options are plenty in Truckee, and nothing is more quintessential than the small-town charm and big flavor at Glenshire Pizza Company located in Glenshire. The menu offers a variety of pizzas including the Mt. Tallac, Castle Peak, and New Yorker. Starters, salads, pasta, beer, and wine are available as well.

Glenshire Trail Access

Trail access on foot, on a horse, or on a bike can be found in and around Glenshire. The Truckee River Legacy Trail starts near Glenshire and follows the scenic Truckee River from Glenshire to Downtown Truckee; not only is this a popular trail for humans but dogs are allowed on this easy-access trail. Plus, the Legacy Trail is plowed year-round and located in full sun for a perfect walk any day of the year. For a longer adventure, the Tahoe-Pyramid Trail follows the entire length of the Truckee River in the other direction, with a prominent Glenshire section; the entire trail from Truckee to Pyramid Lake is 114 unforgettable miles. For a shorter and more private residential experience, however, nothing will be more inspiring than a walk around Glenshire Pond.

Glenshire Pond

A body of water is truly the focal point of any noteworthy community, and one of the most scenic draws in Truckee is only a short walk from home for Glenshire members. Glenshire Pond features a leisurely and easy-to-access trail that begins behind the clubhouse. It stretches over a bridge, meanders through wetlands, and follows along a wooden boardwalk. With rest areas, ample shade, and natural landscaping, this walk is welcoming for kids, couples, grandparents, and everyone in between. For a quieter adventure, pack a picnic and a pair of binoculars to sprawl lakeside and experience the abundant natural wildlife, like the white pelicans that breed here every year.

Glenshire Elementary School

Truly an association for all ages, high-quality education can be found right in the neighborhood at Glenshire Elementary School. The school provides education for kindergarten through fifth grade. A highly rated public school in the area, small class sizes, and dedicated teachers make this school the perfect place for kids to learn about the world around them. The modern facility includes a library, gym, cafeteria, technology lab, performance stage, and solar design. Its scenic location provides outdoor field study and even snowshoeing adventures in the winter.
