About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6

Your Lake Tahoe getaway will certainly be a "Serene Retreat" when you stay here. Situated on scenic Donner Summit, this Soda Springs vacation condo is centrally located near the historic resort as well as Boreal, Sugar Bowl, and Donner Lake.

Just a short jaunt from your door is Soda Springs' Royal Gorge cross-country trailhead at Van Norden Meadows. From there, you can snowshoe as well. Warm-weather hikes are possible, too, so bring your boots or trail runners. There's also a shared tennis court and a private furnished deck with amazing views.

Inside the cozy condo is a delightful home away from home complete with a DVD library and board game collection for family night. Stretch out on the L-shaped sofa or cuddle up with your guests. Next to the living room is a fully stocked kitchen with a dishwasher. Fix snacks or an entire dinner to be enjoyed casually around the four-seat dining table.

Six guests can be accommodated here. In the master bedroom is a king bed. A second bedroom has a full bed for kids to share. And, both bedrooms have their own TVs, too. With two bathrooms, you can choose between a tiled walk-in shower or a deep jetted tub.

Additionally, there is a private washer and dryer as well as free WiFi for your convenience. Your dogs are welcome to stay too, for a small nightly fee.

Only three-and-a-half miles east lie Sugar Bowl and Boreal, which offer winter activities and child summer camps. Eleven miles away is Donner Lake Memorial State Park for water sports. Other Lake Tahoe attractions include Northstar, about 20 miles east, and Kings Beach, about seven miles away.

Book your stay at the Serene Retreat and you'll want to return year after year!

About Vacasa, CA - Lake Tahoe Office

Thanks for considering a Vacasa home! We provide full-service management for privately owned vacation homes, and like to think that we offer our guests the best of both worlds: the unique experience of staying in a one-of-a-kind vacation home, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the home you book for your special vacation is cared for by professional housekeepers and property managers.



Vacasa began in 2009, simply because our founder and CEO Eric wanted to find a better way to share his wife’s family’s summer home in Long Beach, Washington with guests as a vacation rental. Eric and his early team worked to build Vacasa on the premise that local employees can do what they love most (taking care of guests, homeowners, and properties), while the hands-off tasks of vacation rental management—things like marketing, filing taxes, and maintaining a website—could be handled by a specialized central support team.



Our passion is connecting travelers with the unique experience of staying in a vacation home, and we would be honored to be your host. Please contact us with any questions about this home—our team is standing by!

Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5

Outside view does not prepare you for comfort inside!

Very large and very comfy. Mostly carpeted with beautiful tile and oak wood work throughout.

Nice jaccuzi tub in master bath as well as showers in both bathrooms.

A great get away at the end of a busy summer

  • 4 of 5

My family and I had a great time. Only a couple minutes from Donner Lake and 45 min from Reno. We will definitely be looking at using this location again.

There are things that you will like and there are things that you will not

  • 3 of 5

1. Can't beat the location because we are cross country skiers and we love Royal gorge.

2. Excellent property management with the snowplowing every morning and evening

3. Real dog friendly

Things that need improvement

1. The chairs and table in the living room need to be replaced they are all broken and dangerous

2. Jacuzzi is way too deep for the small hot water heater that you have , it is impossible to get a hot Jacuzzi unless you run up and down the stairs and boil water .

3. Need to upgrade lighting for reading /need 100 W bulbs .

4. Kitchen was fine the showers were fine , The bedding was fine and I really appreciate all the towels in the dryer and washing machine .

5. Place would be terrific if those improvements were made

Great little condo

  • 4 of 5

I stayed here with my three kids. It was cozy, comfortable, and very conveniently located. It had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. It's a little outdated and the neighbors can be heard, but we managed just fine. We would love to return next year and have this condo to come back to after a day of fun on the mountain.

Nice, but not fancy

  • 4 of 5

Well located, a short drive from Sugarbowl, the apartment is a good size and well appointed (decent kitchen, two good bathrooms). If you go in expecting a rental for a family geared up to ski and play in the snow you won't be disappointed. The team managing the property on site are super helpful.

Get location nice management. Needs repair especially door locks and handles. Place was fairly clean and free of pet hair but furniture is old and broken. Toilet upstairs needs repair , shower down stairs needs repair. Overall we had fun.
