Soda Springs cabin description

Location: Soda Springs, Gold Country & High Sierra, California, USA (In Soda Springs. Just a block from Ice Lakes Lodge.)

Accommodations: Cabin, 4 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths (Sleeps 8-10)

Avoid the crowds!

Soda Springs Cabin gives you the feeling of the 'Old Tahoe' without traffic. The beauty and solitude is breathtaking. It all happens here, right out your front door! Royal Gorge cross country skiing right out your front door! Sugarbowl, Northstar, Squaw Valley and Alpine just minutes away. Walking distance to Ice Lakes Lodge Restaurant(closed). No traffic jams, just peace and quiet in a pristine alpine setting.

Unlimited recreational activities, at your fingertips. Skiing, cross-country, sledding, skating, snowshoeing, canoeing, boating, hiking, horseback riding, shopping, swimming, fishing, rock climbing, mountain biking, rock climbing, sunbathing, golfing, sailing, white-water rafting, festivals, and mountaineering.

Unbelievable access to an amazing amount of trails for the Royal Gorge Cross Country Skiing and Sugar Bowl Alpine Ski Areas. Minutes to Pacific Crest Trailhead, and centrally located to several major ski areas.

Conveniently located just five minutes off Highway 80. Fun for all generations. Easy access in and out of the cabin for grandma and grandpa (two steps). The Soda Springs Cabin is an A-frame home which has an open floor plan. Sleeps eight to ten people.

Downstairs is the fully-equipped kitchen and spacious living room area, with two bedrooms each has a king-size bed, one bath, laundry area and mud room. Linens provided.

Upstairs are two more bedrooms each has a queen-size bed, one bath, and large open loft which has a queen-size sofa bed and overlooks open space. The loft has fiction books, music, TV, video/dvd player with boardgames/games and videos for all ages.

Whether you want to play or stay in and relax, our cabin has a tremendous amount to offer all families. Peaceful and serene as it sounds. Soda Springs has significant snow fall with year-round access 7000-feet elevation. Our lot is also unusually quiet, with a small stream across the road in front of us, and no houses to the immediate front or left of the building (it is at the street crossroads).

Come, stay, and experience the beauty of our Soda Springs Cabin in the Serene Lakes Area. With a BBQ grill, outdoor picnic table/chairs in the summer, canoe and beach toys, there is plenty to do for your friends and family! No matter how many times you come stay, there is always a place you have never seen before.

We are 1.5 blocks from the water/dock and 3 blocks from the Lodge. 10 mins west from Donner Lake.

We do offer a complimentary turn down service - the cabin will be bright, warm and welcoming upon your arrival! DSL. We have iPhone4 docks and speakers in the cabin.

We try to make sure coffee beans are available (we have a coffee grinder and machine) but we do lose track of inventory sometimes. We do have courtesy linens and TP at the cabin but if you feel that you are a high-usage group or afraid you may run out, please bring your own supplies.

WINTER ONLY:

Please inquire if you would require babysitting services, we do not personally know any of the sitters but we have references from a local babysitting/nanny site that we can refer you to.

Upon reservation, you will get a BIG LIST of instructions before you check in, please read EVERY single line - it protects us and you from additional damages that could incur. It also has tips on how to make your trip more pleasant based on our experiences.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2005

                  About the owner: We are two software engineers in the bay area. We bought a cabin because we loved snowboarding! We love food and cooking at home, we have large family feasts when we go up there. We usually hike, snowboard and curl up. We have been renting this place for about 7 years now and had the luxury of renting to repeat families that come annually. Families have started moving away and things change so we are opening this cabin up this year - to see how it works out. The cabin is very lovingly maintained by a young couple that live in the area, loved by families who have been coming for many years now, before we had the privilege of owning it. We hope to attract people who will appreciate it as much as we have.

                  Why the Owner Chose Soda Springs:
                  We fell in love with this cabin - it is beautiful, unique, well-kept, warm (cozy but not small) and unassuming. Of all the ones we saw, we loved this one the most. It is serene where it is, yet easy to get to. We rarely get snowed in even if the pass does shut down (we are located before Donner pass), it permits us to beat the traffic in and out of Tahoe. It takes us exactly 3 hrs to get to the cabin from San Francisco. The residents and community is tight-knit, warm and family/community oriented.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                  Play space in the loft for kids, with a TV/DVD and videos for kids and adults! Cabin is stocked with novels and old maps and guides for the outdoor lover! Close to Soda Springs snow tubing area - particularly awesome for little kids!
