All that Donner Summit has to offer in a cozy, cute, organized and updated cabin.
The Sugar Shack cabin is quaint and complete, on a relatively-private, well-treed corner lot on a quiet street. A block's walk will get you to the lake, and two blocks delivers you to the extensive trail system of the Royal Gorge X-country ski area (also good for summer hiking and mountain biking). Sugar Bowl ski resort is an easy four mile drive down the road. (PLEASE NOTE: We do not offer ski leases at the Sugar Shack.)
On the first floor of the Sugar Shack, a wood stove warms a living room with vaulted ceilings. Living space opens to newly-remodeled kitchen/dining area with a large table. A sliding glass door accesses the sunny back deck. Two identical queen bedrooms and a full bath complete the first floor.
Up the stairs is a large sleeping loft and TV/game area with two twin beds and two fold out sofa chairs. The loft has a bathroom with stall shower (3/4 bath).
The house is accessed through an A-frame vestibule perfect for storing skis, boots, and firewood. The vestibule also makes for easy access to the cabin on those legendary Serene Lakes snow days (a snowplow service will clear right up to the front door the morning of every snowfall, and repeatedly throughout the day if necessary).
In summer, swimming at the beach is a must. We store a canoe at the lake, one block away, for your enjoyment.
The Sugar Shack can sleep up to a tight 8, but 6 is more comfortable. The floor plan is a good set-up for a single family desiring space, three couples, or two families with a couple of kids each.
We (the owners) have 'VRBO'd' all across the country as a family, and have set up the Sugar Shack based on our experiences. We strive to manage the Sugar Shack in a professional manner, and the property is professionally cleaned between guests. We retain a local property manager for emergencies. We invite you to come enjoy Donner Summit, Serene Lakes, and the Sugar Shack...
