About the property

Cabin, 5 Bedrooms + Loft, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 15)

This charming lake view house is located in Soda Springs just 10 miles before Truckee. Lake access is a hop across the street with no barriers! A green belt sits between the lake and our home. With amazing deck views of Serene Lakes as well as the Sierra Nevada, you can relax and breathe fresh mountain air on our large deck that can easily fit your entire group. If you are coming from the Bay Area, it is a fabulous location as it is less of a drive and minus the noise and traffic of Lake Tahoe. This very friendly family orientated community is perfect for family retreats or just getting together with good friends. With plenty to do in both summer and winter, outdoor enthusiasts will love it here!

Literally just behind the house is North America's largest cross-country ski resort, Royal Gorge. Fantastic sledding is conveniently available along the side of our property. Multiple downhill ski resorts are just minutes away! From Sugar Bowl, Donner Ski Resort, Soda Springs Ski Resort to Boreal. Northstar and Squaw Valley USA are just a little further! In addition, we have cross-country skis and boots available for your use as well as sleds for closer to home activities.

Summertime is just as spectacular with activities such as bike riding (bikes available at the house), strolls around the lake (2 miles), swimming, fishing, laying out on the beach (sand toys and umbrella available), canoeing (yours to use and parked conveniently on the lake shore), kayaking (one man kayak located in the garage), BBQing on the deck, hiking, and much more!

So whether you are looking for outdoor excitement or just want to relax, our home will offer you an exceptional experience that you won't forget!

About Cynthia Capone

We currently live in the Bay Area and enjoy the outdoors. We are a family of 4. Living in the Bay Area, we feel it's important to slow things down whenever we get the chance! Visiting the Sierras has always been an enjoyment for us and something we hope to share with our children for many years.

Cynthia Capone purchased this cabin in 2005

Why Cynthia Capone chose Soda Springs

Having known next to nothing about the Serene Lakes area, we agreed to visit a friend who recently purchased a cabin there. We instantly fell in love and decided to buy a place just down the street. It works out so well for us since we love the outdoors but also enjoy the serenity this place has to offer. It's a few hours outside the Bay Area but just far enough away from the madness at Lake Tahoe. We love it here and especially the fact that it accommodates large groups! So many memories....

What makes this cabin unique

There are so many activities that we end up doing throughout the year on our visits. There's downhill skiing, sledding, crosscountry skiing, bike riding, running, rollerblading, hiking, walking, swimming, canoeing, fishing, and of course overeating! However, the main goal is to relax and take in the fresh air with good friends and family!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you SO very much for renting us your home -- we had a terrific time, despite the little amounts of snow. We've been renting houses up in the Serene Lakes area for several years and we all agreed, your home was the best, hands down -- it's a great location, funky layout that actually works, incredibly well-stocked (generously and thoughtfully).....

Thanks again - we hope to stay there again sometime this winter. Will be in touch!

Capone's Lake Getaway at Serene Lakes, Soda Springs
average rating of 4.8 based on 41 reviews

Perfect spot to bring the whole gang!

  • 5 of 5

We only had 7 adults and 4 kids, but you really could comfortably sleep 10 adults and 5 kids here! In the winter, do some skiing or tubing at super-nearby Soda Springs Resort and in the summer, enjoy the lakes! Wifi was solid and reliable if you can't tear yourself away from the screens.

Owner's Response: We are really glad you had a nice time! The snow must have been incredible following the storm. And yes, getting everyone to disconnect for a few days can be challenging (ha). Hope you think of us when you plan your next trip to the Sierra's. Thanks again!

Wonderful Home!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at the Capone's home. My sister located and rented this house and it turned out to be a wonderful surprise. Our party had young kids, teenagers, adults and one grandparent. The house was well equipped and located at a perfect location. The sledding along the side of the house was so convenient. We built a super sled run and even a snow igloo. We watched from the deck as some in our party tried out some cross country skiing on the lake. The house has 5 sets of cross country skis. We had some great family dinners. We fit 14 at the dinner table! Of course it was a bit cozy! We will be coming back! Only downside was we were the first to arrive and we couldn't see the lockbox with the keys at first. I'd recommend having a flash light if you get in late.

Great Tahoe house for groups and families!

  • 5 of 5

We had several families stay together in this house and it was perfect for our needs, especially with the large dining table, bar counter, living area with space to spread out, and most of all, a wonderful loft area that was still private, but had plenty of beds for the children to stay together. The beds were very comfortable and after the house had a chance to heat up, it was quite cozy despite the snow storm. It's a great location close to Sugar Bowl and surrounding ski resorts. The owner Cynthia was extremely responsive to all our questions, and immediately addressed any concerns.

Great winter stay with sledding hill on property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for three nights and had a wonderful time. There is a sledding hill right next door which we made great use of with our kids. The loft was a fantastic retreat for our kids, and it is enclosed at the top so they slept there and we didn't have to worry about hanging out in the living room and the noise waking them.

The house is very functional. We had 10 adults and 5 kids stay for the three nights. It was tight in the living area and at dining room table, but not so crowded that we couldn't enjoy ourselves. We're looking forward to returning next year!

Owner's Response: We are so glad you had a nice time! It really is a nice location and set-up for large groups. The sledding area right next to the house has been a hit for our kids growing up and so glad your kids enjoyed it too. Looking forward to hearing from you again and Happy new Year!

The Capone home is the perfect cozy getaway. We had plenty of space for the adults and children. Their home is very well equipped from the kitchen to the garage, baby monitor and high chair! Perfect location with gorgeous views... we will for sure be back in the summer time to enjoy the lake.

Cozy large cabin in a great location.

  • 3 of 5

The house is very cozy and large enough that everyone had a great time there. The house comes with a lot of amenities but it's a little bit on the older side. There was an additional $120 linen fee that was not advertised. I don't understand why a home wouldn't have clean linen available to begin with and still they didn't put linen on 2 of the rooms. Overall we still had a great time at the house.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review. We are glad you had a nice visit and hope to hear from you again. I apologize for not making the linen service very clear. Originally I had it listed just under Amenities (under Additional Info) and our Contract Agreement, however, I did go back in and added it to several other places in our description as to help clarify things. We appreciate your comments as it helps us improve our service to our future guests.
