I've made a last-minute decision to not spend Christmas at the cabin for the first time in 18 years so it is available for some lucky, last-minute planner, five nights for $400/night. (Plus $200 cleaning and 10% tax and whatever VRBO charges you.)
You need to know that there is no garage. The driveway can fit six medium-size cars carefully parked. If it snows you will have to move the cars out of the driveway so it can be plowed. This take coordination with the plow service. They come by in the morning and plow out the berm, you have the cars cleared and ready to move on to the street while they plow the driveway.
Cabin is less than 10 minutes from Sugar Bowl and two minutes from Royal Gorge. There is a sledding hill two blocks from the house.
This is a large, 3,000+ square foot cabin is just 2 flat blocks from the lake. Perfect for family reunions or multiple families to share. There are six separate sleeping areas. No bunk beds. No one has to sleep in the living room. The kitchen is large and well-equipped so cooking and sharing meals together is fun.
You shouldn't have to share a room with your snoring brother-in-law! Our cabin offers plenty of privacy. Three bedrooms on the main level, an enclosed loft with 4 twin beds, a bedroom downstairs, plus a small alcove with a queen futon. (A doorway but no door. Not technically a bedroom but still way better than sofabed in the living room.)
NOTE: I have just switched to the pay-per-booking option. In order to do so I can only accept on-line payments through VRBO.
Be sure to click on the link listed below to view our cabin web page which has more information and many photos.
Beds include: Two Queen, Two Full, Six Twin & One Queen Futon.
The house is two flat blocks from the north end of the two lakes. Our canoe is stored, at the community beach, ready for your enjoyment, a 20 minute walk, a 7 minute (level) bike ride or 5 minutes by car.
Serene Lakes is a hidden gem just a few minutes off of I-80. Summers are low-key and relaxed. No crowds. Hike, bike, swim, canoe, explore. No need to drive far, if at all. Perfect for kids. Of course Truckee, Donner Lake, Tahoe and Reno are nearby if you want a change-of-pace.
Many of our summer renters are repeat visitors. Two groups have rented from us for nine years!
Two of the bathrooms were remodeled in 2008. The carpet on the main level and loft is new as of Nov 2009. In the Spring of 2010 we added a 46' HDTV with DirecTV and DVR. In November 2010 we replaced the stove and dishwasher. Summer 2011 we rebuilt and relocated the back deck and front deck and stairs. (No choice on this project. The previous winter was brutal.) In November 2012 we purchased a new, larger, fridge. Upkeep and maintenance of the cabin is very important to us.
I will allow one, well-behaved dog.
Linens are not included in the rental, sorry.
Please note: the cabin is not available from Thanksgiving to May 1. Sorry NO WINTER RENTALS!
