About the Property
1447 square feet --available year round--but NO LAST MINUTE RESERVATIONS
Located 3 miles west of historic Donner Summit and the heart of Serene Lakes, this cozy two story cabin offers all the amenities of home. Four comfortable bedrooms sleep up to 12. There is a full bathroom on each of the two floors. A fully equipped kitchen w/ microwave, stove, dishwasher, blender, coffee maker and refrigerator make vacationing fun and easy. There is more than adequate storage in the basement. There is AT&T cable TV, wifi, Blueray streaming and many playable CDs and VCR tapes. The cabin is located near the Serene Lakes, which offer kayaking, canoeing, and fishing (for stocked trout). For winter, the cabin contains floor board heating and an efficient wood burning stove (w/ plenty of wood available). You will be within a mile of the Royal Gorge ski area and minutes away from Sugar Bowl, Boreal, Squaw, Alpine Meadows and Northstar. The SLPOA schedules many activities for children and adults during the summer months. There is much opportunity for day hikes in the area. Also, you can play horseshoes in our horseshoe pit, or bacchi ball with our friendly neighbors. And we have a webcam to capture the latest weather conditions, which we would be happy to email you. Also, we are installing a new forced air heating system with completion expected in December, 2016. NOTE: NO LAST MINUTE RESERVATIONS and NO LEASES!--we need at least 3 days to process your credit card.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

About the owner: I have always loved hiking, backpacking and fishing in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. My wife and I have enjoyed hiking, fly-fishing, and cross country skiing in the Soda Springs area. My sons were active in boy scouts and also have an appreciation for these mountains. In particular, there are many planned activities here during the 4 July holiday. We are also supporters of the Pacific Crest Trail, which is nearby just off of Fwy 80, near Boreal ski area. The area has fabulous outdoor activities, not to the mention the railroad and Donner Party history.
Why the Owner Chose Serene Lakes, Soda Springs, CA, USA:
The property is soooo peaceful and surrounded by towering lodgepole pines. Its great sitting out on the deck in late afternoon enjoying a cocktail and listening to the birds. My family, including our three grown sons, also enjoy the outdoors here, and soon so will our grandchildren (Cooper and Nadine). This year (2016) we have fabulous snow, ideal for skiing and winter activities.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
fresh air, enjoying nature, physical aerobic activity (cross country skiing, swimming, hiking, fishing, canoeing/kayaking, & mountain biking) and other SLPOA events. I love the basement in this cabin!! As of 18 Aug, 2013, we now have a 2 person kayak and horseshoes for your enjoyment. As of July, 2016 we also have a brand new canoe!! And why get a hotel room when for a few dollars more you can cook, have more room, and invite all your friends??
