About the property

A beautiful single family retreat minutes to 5 ski resorts.

The cabin is set up for a family of 4. If more then 4 people you must provide your own bedding and linens. Absolutely NO pets!!!

The Walkers Chalet is a modern 900sf, 2bd, 1.5bth family cabin on a 10,000sf lot, so close to the ski resorts you can hear the grooming machines. The cabin is set up for a family of 4 comfortably but can sleep more. One bedroom has twin bunk beds with a cot couch while the other bedroom has a queen bed. Also we priced our cabin for a family of 4 to be able to afford it. We don't encourage multi families. No cable tv but has free wifi with Netflix and Amazon instant video on a 50' HD big screen. No dishwasher or washer dryer. It is tastefully decorated and very comfortable. It has a big front deck for enjoying the fresh mountain air.

About Trevor Walker

We found this wonderful place for sale and with a lot of luck and hard work we turned it into our happy place! We call it 'The Hoot' because every time we come up here we have such a hoot!!!

Trevor Walker purchased this chalet in 2013

Why Trevor Walker chose Soda Springs

We picked this property because it is so close to home. We always hop in the car in the evening from the East Bay SF and we are here in 2.5hrs even with a restroom break! This cabin is a hoot... Winter, Summer, Spring or Fall!

What makes this chalet unique

Just a few miles from 5 major ski resorts and close to all amenities Lake Tahoe has to offer. Neighborhood streets and driveway plowed daily when snow is present. General store is a short beautiful walk down the end of the block.

Awesome vacations, every time

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfect for our family (two toddlers and a baby). Spacious enough, comfortable, modern, anything you need is there even hot chocolate :)

Super close to soda springs and boreal resorts which are perfect for our 3 and 5 years old who love to ski.

We’ll be back next year for more fun

Modern, comfortable, cabin for small family. Perfect.

  • 5 of 5

Great location near sugar bowl and royal gorge, right off 80 but in a small neighborhood of nice vacation homes. Walk to soda springs general store and 5 mins to great skiing (or a few more to squaw).

This is an older a frame style cabin that has been thoroughly updated from studs up (I assume) recently. Really nice and comfy for 3-4 people (couple with kids) as there are two bedrooms (one with bunks, one with queen). Modern bathrooms one with spa tub, and fully stocked modern kitchen. If the owner was selling I’d buy it. Will definitely be back.

Just perfect...

  • 5 of 5

First ski trip for our 5-yr old twins and only our third trip to the snow ever. Couldn't have been better! The Walker's cabin was spotless, comfortable, and spacious (excellent layout and use of space for only 900 sq. ft.). We spent three days at Donner Ski Ranch and got the kids to survive the green runs. With the cabin less than 10 min. away, we could come back for lunch and take a nice midday break. The little store down the street is stocked with all the basics and then some. Trevor was exceptionally accommodating and easy to communicate with. Thanks for sharing your home with us!

Great getaway very close to Soda Springs resort

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a four-day weekend with our four-year-old daughter. It's a great house, just 3- minutes from Soda Springs Resort, where we spent the time playing at the Planet Kids area. The owners were very communicative, and every email was answered quickly, often within minutes! The house is clean and well-maintained. There is a railroad track nearby but we never heard the train at night, which was a relief. I'd definitely stay here again.

cute cabin

  • 4 of 5

The amount of snow was unreal. We couldn't really enjoy the yard for sledding or building a snowman, which was kind of a bummer. Location of this place is awesome; close to the freeway, close to the soda springs resort. The road was well plowed despite the 8-10' piles of the white stuff on the sides of the roads (kinda like driving in a canyon)

Plenty of bedding, blankets, etc. fluffly towels. The owner was amazing. Great communication and contact. The stairs and driveway were dug out prior to our arrival. The thermostat was set to something comfortable. There's a manual in the cabin for the various electronics and how to operate them. (This was very much appreciated.. I'm a big fan of RTFM)

Things that were not-so-great:

-- The train line is close by. It goes by all night and when it hits the grade-level crossing, it signals short-short-loooooooong. (fun fact: it's the transcontinental line -- good for history buffs, not good for sleeping if you're a light sleeper)

-- could not find a decent sized mixing bowl for making pancakes.

-- need bigger coffee cups; true java junkies don't wanna have to refill every 6oz. :)

overall, a good place to say and I'd recommend it to folks.
