Owner info

Year Purchased: 2015

About the owner: After several years of renting places for our two families plus grandparents for both skiing and summer fun, we decided to invest in a place to create our own memories. We invite you to stay in our house with its nearly 100 years of history on Donner Summit. Please, join us!

Why the Owner Chose Soda Springs, CA, USA:
Walking into the Norden Lodge, there is an aura, a charm, a history which envelopes the visitor. After passing an extra large "mud room" - used for both winter and summer fun - you enter the Billiard Room which used to house the Norden General Store. This room, its two seating areas, pool tables and multiple musical instruments embody the history of the lodge. After looking at multiple houses, we knew THIS was the one; the one for our kids to enjoy - and hopefully for their kids as well. There are so many nooks and crannies - and SPACE. It is simply unique and amazing!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Run for years as a bed and breakfast, there are several bedrooms with full baths "en suite." Located on the property is an old cabin like building that housed some of the men that built the first railroad tracks over Donner Summit. There is history, character and charm from room to room.
