Why Josh Baker chose Serene Lakes
We enjoy the outdoors, hiking, and skiing (both kinds) and stumbled upon the idyllic hamlet of Serene Lakes one summer looking for new hiking trails and fishing spots. We immediately fell in love with the serenity, the community, the lake and beach and are now thrilled to own a place in this quiet paradise away from the hectic and over-crowded Tahoe scene.
What makes this House unique
Our house is on one of the quietest streets in Serene Lakes. We are two blocks in one direction from the boat house from where we paddle our kayak, paddle board, or paddle boat across Ice Lakes to the beautiful, quiet beach on the other side, fishing along the way. Two blocks in the other direction is Royal Gorge trail access for hiking, mountain biking, and skiing. One of the most popular sledding hills in Serene Lakes is just two doors down. The house is sturdy and spacious with beautiful views from three different decks. The 2nd floor kitchen and living area are updated and cozy, and the 1st and 2nd floors provide ample space for our large family to spread out when needed. Our kids love playing ping pong in the first floor rec room. We love to cook in the well-appointed 2nd floor kitchen, and we like the bonus kitchen on the 1st floor for extra fridge space or when there are many cooks feeding a crew. The timed floor heating in the kitchen feels luxurious when making breakfast on a cold morning. We looked at cabins in Serene Lakes ranging from uncomfortably ostentatious to cold and rustic. When we first walked into this place we immediately felt the perfect blend of a comfortable, clean, and spacious cabin that still had a woodsy warmth.

Great Host, Great House
Josh had everything ready for us, including clearing the snow from the deck and driveway. The house is exceptionally well equipped and the facilities are exactly as described. We had a great time and would definitely book this house again. Thank you.
Perfect for Families
We had an amazing time. The kids loved having an entire floor to themselves!
Very pretty home in a perfect location.
Located about 2 miles from sugarbowl, this home is gorgeous, large, and in a perfect location. We will definitely be booking another trip here in the future.
Beautiful home, all the amenities we needed. Our group had a perfect weekend.
Great location for winter sports
We had a great winter vacation at this house. It is a short walk (1/2 mile) to the Royal Gorge cross county ski area and a 15 minute drive from Sugar Bowl for downhill skiing. The house is well furnished with everything you may need. Owner communicates well with guests and everything went smoothly with our trip.
What a great stay! Amazing house that was better equipped than my own. Great space for kids to have fun and adults could be adults. We loved our stay and can’t wait to book again!
