About the Property
Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10)
3 ski resorts are within 15 minutes with Soda Springs close enough you can come home for lunch. Royal Gorge, the largest cross country resort in the US is a few blocks away and you can cross country ski on the lake. At 6200 feet, we have the best snow in the Sierras.
Our cabin features a fabulous BBQ and well equipped kitchen, but if you don't want to cook, the Ice Lakes Lodge is just down the street.
Whether you want to be active or just relax, the Serena Creek Retreat will more than meet your expectations and just might be your year after year must-do experience.

Serene Lakes is wonderful for snow shoeing in winter and snow shoes are available in Soda Springs or Royal Gorge. For children and the young at heart, one of our streets in Serene Lakes is not plowed in winter for local sledding and tubing thrills.
Many lakes are within driving distance, 4 wheel drive roads and many trails are close by.
The Pacific Crest Trail is just three miles to the East with some of the most magnificent scenery in North America.
Donner Summit is famous for rock climbing.
Donner Lake is close by for motorized boating, kayaking and paddleboat rental.
Donner Party Historical Museum in Truckee.
Historic Truckee for shopping and restaurants.
Lake Tahoe and Tahoe City for dining, bike rentals, rafting, live theater.
Reno is 1 hour for gambling and University of Nevada Reno sports events.
Year Purchased: 2000
About the owner: We are a family of 5 adults and two grandchildren....so far. We love the outdoors from playing in the lake, to sitting on the beach, hiking to skiing, mountain climbing to shopping. We love sharing wonderful meals together, playing games and just hanging out. We love to travel together but can not imagine not having some place close to the Bay Area to call our own. PS the picture is my granddaughter shoveling the deck at the front of the cabin.
Why the Owner Chose Soda Springs, CA, USA:
In 1994 we were looking for something unique to call our own in our love, the Sierra Nevada mountains...some place where our kids could roam and play and we would feel they were safe. This is truly the hidden gem of the Sierras, close to winter sports, loaded with summer activities but within 3 hours of the Bay Area. What we did not know when we purchased in Serene Lakes, how valuable it is to be on the west side of Donner Summit as we can avoid chain controls set up outside of Truckee in winter and traffic from Tahoe City in the summer. We have hiked to many lakes, biked, rafted, kayaked, skied, snowboarded, tubed, thrown too many snowballs to count and had great fun going to sports events at UNR in Reno and enjoying Raging Waters there in the summer. There are been many joys and sorrows at Circus Circus and Hot August Nights is a yearly gas. The memories we have created since coming to Serene Lakes for the first time in 1994, then building our present cabin in 2000, are too incredible to describe and we invite you to start your own memories here. We look forward to sharing Serene Lakes and the Serena Creek Retreat with you.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
We ski, swim, hike, snow shoe, relax and enjoy the community activities. Fish and Tadpoles beware! The cabin tour held during Labor Day weekend is something we never miss. We enjoy family meals and sharing the experiences of the day. Holidays spent here have been and will continue to be, lifelong memories.
