Soda Springs cabin description

Located 4 miles west of historic Donner Summit and the heart of Serene Lakes, this cozy two story cabin offers all the amenities of home. A fully equipped kitchen w/ microwave, stove, dishwasher, blender, and refrigerator make vacationing fun and easy. The cabin is located near the Serene Lakes, which offer kayaking, canoeing, and fishing (for stocked trout). Four comfortable bedrooms sleep up to 12. There is more than adequate storage in the basement. For winter, the cabin contains floor board heating and a wood burning stove (w/ plenty of wood available). You will be within 2 miles of the Royal Gorge ski area and minutes away from Sugar Bowl, Squaw, Alpine Meadows and Northstar. There are bathrooms on each of the two floors. The SLPOA schedules many activities for children and adults during the summer months. Also, you can play horseshoes in our horseshoe pit, or bacchi ball with our friendly neighbors. And remember that the Serene Lakes get as much snow as Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, Northstar, Heavenly and Mammoth Mountain!

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2013

              About the owner: I have always loved hiking, backpacking and fishing in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. My wife and I have enjoyed hiking, fly-fishing, and cross country skiing in the area. I backpacked in the Sierras when I was a teenager. My sons were active in boy scouts and also have an appreciation for these mountains. In particular, there are many planned activities during the 4 July holiday.

              Why the Owner Chose Soda Springs:
              The property is soooo peaceful and surrounded by towering lodgepole pines. Its great sitting out on the deck in late afternoon enjoying a cocktail and listening to the birds. My family, including our three grown sons, also enjoy the outdoors here, and soon so will our grandchildren (Cooper and Nadine).

              The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
              fresh air, enjoying nature, physical aerobic activity (cross country skiing, swimming, hiking, fishing, canoeing/kayaking, & mountain biking) and other SLPOA events. I love the basement in this cabin!! As of 18 Aug, 2013, we now have a 2 person kayak and horseshoes for your enjoyment. And why get a hotel room when for a few dollars more you can cook, have more room, and invite all your friends??
