Buca Dodici has been unobtrusively built into the hillside along the winding roads of the eco-friendly and esteemed Shaffer’s Mill community. The organic elements that circle the home have been incorporated into the architecture inside and out to create a sense of accord between the natural and the modern uniting materials like stone, weathered wood, and iron. This grand, smartly composed mountain home offers 4 beds, 5.5 baths and can sleep up to 11 guests in comfort.

The aesthetic and elemental selections from the façade have been cohesively integrated into the interiors; from the slate mantle to the aged wood detailing this open main living area draws the surrounding woods inside. The slopes on Mt. Pluto can be seen from the comfortable ash colored sectional in front of an oversized fireplace. Adjacent is the dining area backed by a wall of windows that reveal towering evergreens that shade the property. Sliding glass doors open onto a large patio outfitted with an outdoor kitchen complete with barbecue grill, sitting and dining area as well as sweeping views of the surrounding mountain forests.  

Back inside, the fully-equipped gourmet kitchen claims the remainder of the large communal living space. With minimalist components that resist conventional notions of luxury, this space imparts opulence in simplicity. Designed with the professional in mind it provides plentiful prep space, industrial stainless-steel and concrete countertops, high-end appliances and is equipped with everything necessary to prepare for a large gathering.

Pass the main floor wet bar, powder room and private office to find the master suite. This large and open space has a king bed, balcony with a private hot tub, fireplace, flat-screen TV, and sitting area. The ensuite bath has dual sinks, a large soaking tub, steam shower, fireplace, and a flat-screen TV. On the same level is the first of the three other guest suites. This second guest suite has a queen bed, balcony access with views of the bordering golf course, a TV, and an ensuite bath. Down the wood and metal staircase on the lower level, pass the main entry to find two more guest suites. The third features a queen bed, patio access, fireplace, flat-screen TV, and an ensuite bath. The final guest suite provides a full bed and two twin bunks and features both patio access and an ensuite bath.

Located alongside the 12th hole of Schaffer's Mill Golf Course, with stunning views of the highest peak at Northstar Ski Resort, and centrally located just outside Historic Truckee, Buca Dodici at Shaffer’s Mill is the perfect location to get away from the crowds and enjoy all the natural beauty and adventure that this region is acclaimed for.

  • Family Vacation

    Our stay was wonderful! Thank you again!

    Thanks, Todd, for taking the time to leave a review of your visit with us! We are glad to hear you enjoyed your time here and we hope to have the pleasure of hosting your family again soon! - Opulent Vacations

  • Mountain opulence! Amazing!!

    We rented this beautiful Cabin on the 12th hole for a Multi-generational family retreat. Everything was perfection & the house itself is amazing! The golfers in the family were in heaven as they were able to access the clubhouse to grab fantastic food and drinks during their round. There was space for everyone to be together in the home and space for the kids when they wanted to be apart. The gourmet kitchen was well appointed with nice appliances and fully stocked. It was headquarters for the family all week as we spent time together and made meals. Our most favorite thing to do was being able to sit out on the large patio and BBQ watching golfers play through. The management company was very accommodating and responsive to any questions we had before and during our stay. This is an incredible property and we hope to be able to have the privilege to stay at Buca Dodici again. The memories made will not be forgotten. We would leave more than five starts if we could. Thank You, Again!

    Peter, we are so thrilled to hear that your family enjoyed the stunning kitchen in this home as well as the front row set to the golf course. We enjoyed being your host and hope to do so again next season! - Opulent Vacations

  • I highly recommend this home in Shaffer's Mill we'll definitely be going back this summer...

    This was our 2nd stay at this fantastic home. The layout is great and they had everything we needed for the entire family. We entertained friends one evening and the kitchen was fully stocked and there was enough seating for everyone. The home was spotlessly clean and had all the amenities one could wish for. It's located on a very quiet cul de sac overlooking the golf course which was very nice. We especially enjoyed the ability to grab a bite to eat and a drink at the golf club after a round of golf or with our most recent visit a day on the slopes. They often have live music on weekends and we lucked out with a great St Patrick's Day celebration and music by Ike and Martin. I highly recommend this home in Shaffer's Mill we'll definitely be going back this summer.

    Hi Jill! Thank you for the outstanding review! We are so glad you enjoyed your time at Buca Dodici at Schaffer’s Mill and we look forward to seeing you again soon. – Megan
