Bill & I (Shira) live and work in San Francisco. Bill is a family physician and professor at UCSF. I'm a marriage & family therapist in private practice. We have 3 grown married children and 7 young grandchildren. We delight in spending time at Serene Lakes where we enjoy kayaking, swimming, biking, rafting, hiking, painting, sculpting, playing scrabble, etc. and thoroughly relaxing in the hammock and other places within our mountain home. In winter, the area is transformed into a winter wonderland (10-12 feet of snow!) and we enjoy skiing and snowshoeing, sledding, etc.

Shira Or Bill Shore purchased this house in 2009

In 2003, one of our children decided to get married at Ice Lakes Lodge, at Serene Lakes. We fell in love with the area and fantasized about owning a place there, 'one day'. We were finally able to fulfill that dream and found the perfect home for us; a place to accommodate all 12 of us when we are lucky enough to arrange to be together. Since 'Something shared is twice enjoyed', we also enjoy sharing our home with others who appreciate and lovingly care for it, as well.

Quiet, tranquil, park-like setting. Very spacious, comfortable, solidly built. Great for entertaining. Perfect for family reunions and get-togethers.

GREAT FOR FAMILIES

  • 5 of 5
Lovely house, well cared for & maintained. Owners very easy to work with. We stayed in Aug 2012 for 5 days and had a blast at the house & in Serene Lakes. Lots of fun things to do locally and the neighborhood lake was so easy to access- no car needed (you can bike or walk to it). There were even Sat night movies outdoors by the lake.

LOVELY PLACE

  • 4 of 5
We stayed at the house in 12/11. It is a great place. The only thing I would fault it on is the crappy TV. You can pick up a nice 42" flat screen for under $500..

Owner's Response: Thanks for your feedback. We are glad that you liked our home despite your dissatisfaction with our three T.V.s. We agree that, although they are fuctional,they are not "state of the art"! We hope that the cable service we provide through Dish Network compensated somewhat with "on demand movies" and that you were able to enjoy other aspects of our home and the surrounding Serene Lakes and Tahoe/Donner area during your stay.
Sincerely,
Shira & Bill

Thank you for a wonderful vacation!
The cabin was very cozy and clean, kitchen well equipped, kids enjoyed sleeping in the loft and playing with all the games they've found there. The owners were very attentive.

Owner's Response: We're delighted that you and your family enjoyed our vacation home. It's great to know that kids are enjoying the loft. We call it our "rainbow room" and created it with our grandchildren in mind.
Come back!

Owner's Response: We're happy that your family enjoyed our home, once again, over Christmas weekend. Our one regret is that the snow level was so low this year but it sounds like you found fun things to do in spite of it.
Looking forward to hearing from you again.
Sincerely,
Shira & Bill
