Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

This spacious mountain home has three distinct living zones which makes this the perfect vacation rental. On the first floor you’ll find the fully equipped laundry facility as well as the recreation room with a television, DVD player and a Wii system. This is also the zone with the “slumber party space”; you’ll find bunk beds, a full bed and even a futon. Located on the second floor are the kitchen, dining area, living room and library which follow an open floor plan, making this floor perfect for socializing. You can savor an amazing high mountain sunrise while sitting on the deck off of the living room. While waiting for the kitchen timer to ring, you can enjoy the mountain air on a second deck. This is also where you’ll find the gas grill. A second entertainment system is located on this floor. If vacation means getting away from it all then make certain you get the chance to use the Jacuzzi tub in the master bedroom suite on the third floor. The tub is backed by floor to ceiling windows that look over cross country ski trails and provide unobstructed views of Castle Peak. While it isn’t a suite, the second bedroom, is actually larger than the master and has a fold out queen bed. Like the master suite, this room also has a gas fireplace. There is a third bedroom on this floor with a queen bed.

The house does have an occupied attached apartment. The tenant of the apartment may be parked in the driveway when you arrive. The door leading to the house has a keyless entry with a code that is changed with each rental.

About The Owner

We recently became grandparents and are looking forward to sharing our love of the outdoors and outdoor sports with all of our family.

The Owner purchased this house in 2011

Why The Owner chose Serene Lakes

Both of us grew up in Santa Rosa and spent many winter vacations skiing in Tahoe. After looking at homes in other locations/states, we knew that the place we wanted to buy had to be in the Tahoe area. One of the things we love the most about this house is it's so traquil but we can easily drive to major ski areas, Truckee, Lake Tahoe or even Reno, that is if we even want to leave the house.

What makes this house unique

Amazing views form almost every window.

Places to curl up with a cup of coffee and a great book. You'll even find some in our take one/leave one library.


Walking trails


Easy access to Interstate 80 and easy to find, even late at night.

Wonderful home for family stay!

  • 5 of 5

This home is a jewel.

Great communication and support from the owners. They really care about you having a great stay.

The house is in a great location very close to soda springs, donner... but also 40’ drive from Northstar whichbwe went to 3 days in a raw from there.

The local sliding hills is perfect. Walking in the now right down the house. And the local community is calm and friendly.

Wonderful getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family and I love this cabin. This is the fourth year that we rented it and, as each time before, we had a lovely time. It is in a quiet neighborhood, right next to Royal Gorge and near Donner Ski. The cabin itself is spacious; we really enjoy the main floor with its open plan, which allows our extended family enough room to enjoy time together without feeling too crowded. The arrangement of sleeping quarters on the first and third floor meant that we could easily find quiet places to read or relax. It is incredibly relaxing overall with really nice furnishings and a well-appointed kitchen that allows us to easily prepare our meals. We definitely plan to return.

Deborah, thank you for opening your home to us. It is a great property, we enjoyed the little amount of time that we were able to spend in it. Kathy was able to answer our questions and any concerns that we had. We did have a great race, we all finished without being injured. Thank you again for your hospitality. I would definately recommend your cabin to friends & family.
