Glenshire in Truckee CA

Glenshire Welcome Sign

Glenshire is a community that is located about 6 miles east of the Downtown Truckee area, and is just 25 minutes to Reno, Nevada.  The residence mix is 80% full-time residents, and 20% second homeowners.  It is known for being a very "family friendly" community, and is often called the "banana belt" of  Truckee due to its lower snow load.

Glenshire is centered around the Glenshire Lake with many homes having a gorgeous lake view!  The area is full of gently rolling hills, lots of open space, and is surrounded by gorgeous mountain views!  Many homes have larger lots that are zoned for horses, and the area has many equestrian easements.


Glenshire Lake

Amenities in the community include:

  • 236 acres of greenbelt located within the subdivision
  • Barbeque Gazebo
  • Basketball Court
  • Commercial Center including the Glenshire General Store, day care center, a hair salon, music store and video store.
  • Community Clubhouse
  • Glenshire Lake - 11 acres
  • Playground Structure
  • Swimming Pool
  • Tennis Courts
  • Walking path around Glenshire Lake

Most of  these amenities are maintained by the Glenshire Devonshire Residents Association.

In addition, nearby Boca Reservoir and Stampede Reservoir is a quick drive for fishing, camping, boating, hiking, and water-skiing.  With all the open space in the area, you only have to walk outside in winter to find a place to snowshoe or cross country ski.  In the summer time, Glenshire is a great place to bike, mountain bike or hike.  You can also walk, or drive down to the Truckee River for great fly fishing!

Glenshire is home to the Glenshire Elementary School, which is a K-5 Public School, that offers a before and after school day care program on the premises that is run by the Truckee Donner Recreation & Park District.

You can also find Truckee Fire District - Station 95, next to the Glenshire Elementary School at 10900 Manchester Drive.
