A Real Charmer in the Woods with Deck & Balcony - Close to Lake Trails, & Slopes

About a block from the lakeshore, this charming, four-bedroom rental features cozy living spaces, a gas fireplace, deck, balcony, outdoor fire pit, and room for up to 10 guests.

In warm weather, take a walk down to the lake for fun-filled days of kayaking, canoeing, and swimming, or head out on one of dozens of local hiking and biking trails that wind throughout the area. In winter, this home is conveniently close to several ski resorts including Royal Gorge, Springs, Sugar Bowl, and Boreal Mountain. For year-round shopping and dining, visit the town of Truckee, just 16 miles east. Please note that if you are visiting during the winter months, a 4x4 vehicle is recommended for safe travel in this area.

This retreat is ideal for a family reunion, ski-cation, or holiday celebration. Take advantage of the free WiFi, switch on the smart TV, or play some of the provided board games as you warm yourselves by the gas fireplace. In the summer, kids of all ages will enjoy the basketball hoop during the day and then everyone can roast marshmallows over the seasonal fire pit and watch the stars come out overhead. This home also comes with a full kitchen and a gas grill on the deck if you want to save some money and have a few family cookouts during your stay.

Get away from it all at this quaint home in the woods. Make your reservation today!

Huge kitchen. (The new pans are great) Lots of space. Great windows and natural light. Easy in and out. Use of local lake front is awesome perk.
Geoff H. Mar 2021
Home is nice and clean, and it's in a great area. A bit small for advertised 10 capacity. Kitchen is nice and open, but woefully basics (saran wrap, aluminum foil). Kitchen tools are not usable (all teflon pots/pans, and all teflon scratched an flaking off, creating health hazard). No info on how to use the home amenities, such as TV, or check out time.
Manager response:
Hi, Geoff! We are ordering new pots and pans, and the property manager is putting together a binder of instructions for the home's amenities. Thank you!

This home is perfectly cozy for my family and so close to Soda Springs.
Janelle D. Jan 2021
This cabin was perfect for a last minute getaway to the snow. It was just right for our family and included puzzles, games and a basketball hoop that delighted my kids.
Overall the house was well maintained but could have done with some closer attention--we noticed a decent amount of thick (aka very established) spiderwebs in areas that wouldn't be difficult to reach to clean and the edges of the rug in the living room were curled up and was a tripping hazard.
Manager response:
Thank you for staying with us, Janelle! We are pleased to hear that the home met your expectations! Thank you for making mention of items in the home that need some TLC. We take this feedback seriously and please know that local staff is available to assist with any issues you encounter while in the home. We hope to have the chance to host you again. Thank you!

We enjoyed staying in this home for 4 nights in October. It is surrounded by beautiful trees all around. The lake is about 5 minute walk away. I would definitely stay here again. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because of the some items that I feel are essential in a successful vacation rental. A big one is having decent pots and pans, bakeware. This home has the smallest supply of above, and they are in a terrible condition. If you decide to rent, bring a couple of your own pots and pans.

This lake is one of my favorite lakes ever because my Besties dad brought us here a children every summer. It’s clean & small & SO family friendly !!!
This house is awesome. Super clean & comfortable for our family. We had 6 kids & 4 adults & we all sleep comfortable. The house is well stocked & the kitchen was very nice to play in. We loved the nice big BBQ. Bummer we could not enjoy the fire pit but obviously it’s not a safe time of year to make a fire!!
We love this house & this area, we will be back soon!! Thank you!!

The house was clean, comfortable and a perfect home for our family summer trip to Soda Springs.

Barry M. Jun 2020
Enjoyed how clean and nicely decorated this cabin is. The kitchen was fully stocked and the beds were comfortable. Within walking distance to beautiful Serene Lake. We would definitely stay at this cabin again.

Very comfortable, inviting home for our family of 5 + au pair + friend.
Susan K. Jan 2020
Comfortable, well appointed kitchen, close to the cross country trails and Sugarbowl. We had a great time with this as our home base.
Stephen H. Jul 2019
Great house. It’s older but has been updated throughout and the kitchen was well-appointed. Serene Lakes was a wonderful location. We were there with 2 young families (5 kids in total ranging from 1-7 yrs).
Heidi O. Apr 2019
Our 4 adults and 5 kids stayed at this adorable vacation home. We were able to put all the kids upstairs for sleeping while the adults could take the downstairs rooms. The home is bright and cheery and has a wonderful gas stove that heats up the downstairs quickly. The kitchen is appointed with basics and worked well for our needs. We were 10-12 minutes drive from Sugar Bowl Gondola and Mt. Judah lodge so it was very convenient. We would recommend this for a ski-cation!
Renata S. Mar 2019
An older home but with very nice upgrades. Very much enjoyed the large kitchen and my girls loved the twin bedroom upstairs. Great heating system that warmed up the house very quickly. Located in a very quiet neighborhood and was conveniently close to Sugar Bowl. Would recommend this home.
Jesse H. Feb 2019
Beds were comfortable, plenty of space for 4 adults and 3 kids, kitchen was big and open to living/dining area.

Location near ski resorts was very convenient. Even when the freeway closed we were still able to get to the resort and ski.

No garage was a drawback during a large storm that left a foot at the door and a couple of feet in the driveway. Even with the driveway getting plowed up to the cars, it still took 3 hours to dig out of front door and get the cars out.
Manager response:
We were delighted to host your group, Jesse. We are glad that you were able to make use of the spacious kitchen and living room area! While a garage is not listed as an amenity at this home, up to six vehicles are allowed in the driveway, and 4x4 or 2-wheel drive vehicles with snow chains are required during the winter months. We encourage guests to call our local staff who are available 24/7 if help is needed. Due to the nature of this area, heavy snow is to be expected during the winter months. We hope you enjoyed your ski getaway, and we look forward to hosting you again!

Lots of rooms for the kids and family

This was a awesome place to stay... loved it , we came to do a athletic event in the area and we're so happy to have this place to stay, rest, and enjoy your beautiful area.
We will book it again 👍

Our 4-person family had a really nice week at the house. Super clean, well set up rental. We highly recommend it.
CRAIG S. Mar 2018
Large comfortable house near Royal Gorge and not too far from Sugar Bowl
James F. Mar 2018
Our family had a great couple of days here playing in the snow. No skiing. No restaurants. Just two days in this quaint, modern home building a snowman, battling in snowball fights and icicle fencing. My only regret is not sharing the place with some friends since it sleeps ten! Loved the high tech conveniences of Apple TV/Google Chromecast, Google Home and Nest. Beautiful woodwork throughout. Great kids room with Bear theme our girls enjoyed. Starter on grill did not work but after running out to get matches we fired that baby up and had fun grilling Korean shortribs in the snow storm. Protip: you have to enter the lockbox code when you lockup to get the faceplate to lock back in. Wish someone had told me that so I could have saved ten minutes in the sub-freezing wind trying to lock up!

Great location, close to skiing, great place for families!

We stayed for a weekend getaway and it was awesome . Very convenient location cute general store close by with friendly store clerks . Everything is so close , we ski borrel and sled with the kids and hiked Doners summit . Coming home to warm cozy home was fun as well the family games provide by the mountain home was a nice end to long day of adventures. Definitely recommend .
