Property description

The Lakeside Haven is nestled on the shore of Lake Serena, the quieter of the two Lakes in the community of Serene Lakes, in the town of Soda Springs at Donner Summit.

The home has a southerly exposure and high, vaulted pine ceilings offering wonderful sunlight and beautiful summer views of Serene Lakes through early evening. The Lakeside Haven is situated on a unique lakefront lot with vacant lots on each side offering unusual privacy.

In the winter Sugar Bowl, only 10 minutes away, offers some of Tahoe's best downhill skiing. The home is also only 5 minutes away from Royal Gorge Cross-Country Ski Resort, which is one of the largest cross-country skiing areas in the world. And it is about 5 minutes from Soda Springs Ski Resort with tubing and special snow programs for children. Squaw, Alpine and Northstar are located near Lake Tahoe (about 30 to 40 minutes away). You can also cross-country ski or snow shoe on the frozen lakes just out the back door.

In the summer, enjoy swimming and relaxing at the beautiful community beach on the connecting sister lake, Lake Dulzura. At the beach are tables and even a snack bar that is open many weekends. Or take the Lakeside Haven’s 3-person canoe or 1-person kayak out for peaceful boating on the lakes. Just outside on the deck facing the lake are a pair of chaise lounges ideal for a nap or reading. (The boats and patio furniture are available June 15 - October 15.)

Truckee is only 20 minutes away with its shopping boutiques as well as fine restaurants such as Moody's, The Dragonfly and The Drunken Monkey.

The Lakeside Haven boasts lakeside views from the master bedroom suite, seclusion and serenity. The master bedroom suite is appointed with grand mahogany furniture and a wood burning fireplace, all setting the mood for enjoying your relationship with your beloved.

Family members have separate living quarters upstairs with 3 bedrooms and 1 bathroom, sleeping up to 6 upstairs.

All bedrooms and the two full bathrooms have vaulted pine ceilings. The 3 bedrooms upstairs boast 4 large beds and share one full bathroom, also with a vaulted pine ceiling. 2 of the 3 bedrooms are connected by double French doors, with the lakeside bedroom having beautiful lake views. Sheer drapes separate those two rooms for privacy. The downstairs master suite has lofty vaulted ceilings, a wood burning fireplace, dual sinks in the master bathroom room, and sweeping lake views at just above lake level.

When snow gets high in the winter it will encircle the large deck off the living and dining rooms (which is kept shoveled) and surround the first story of the home including the master bedroom and dining room to create a cozy, tucked-in, winter wonderland feel.

Location: Town of Soda Springs, California just off I-80 on Donner Summit. Near Donner Lake, and near North Shore of Lake Tahoe. 5 minutes to Sugar Bowl downhill skiing and Royal Gorge cross-country skiing. Lots of hiking nearby. Kayaking and boating on the lakes. 20 minutes to Truckee restaurants and shopping. 15-20 minutes to Donner Lake fishing. 30-40 minutes to Squaw, Alpine and Northstar.
