Just across the street from the Truckee River Winery near Truckee, CA is the heart of Tahoe home decor. The Mountain Home Center offers everything you need for the ultimate cozy and warm mountain home or retreat. The store sells unique and beautiful stoves and fireplaces for keeping warm on snowy days, both rustic and elegant outdoor and indoor furniture, home accessories and hot tubs, spas and saunas.

While part of the store is dedicated to home installation of granite countertops, hot tubs and saunas and larger home items, the store is also jam-packed with smaller decor pieces including kitchen gear, welcome signs, bear art, lamps, luxurious tablecloths and napkins, baskets, fishing and hunting decor, mirrors, bathroom hardware, candles and votives and items from local artists.
You could spend hours in here going through all of their accessories and furniture. The Mountain Home Center also has a wonderful outdoor deck where they display some of their grills, outdoor furniture and beautiful statuary and other pieces for the garden.

The Mountain Home Center has opened up a newer store in downtown Truckee at the Historic Loading Dock Building. This smaller store features a unique selection of seasonal decor, home accessories, bedding, linens, towels, wall art and carved bears, all with a Tahoe mountain flair. Like their larger counterpart, they too feature items from local Truckee artisans.
