My husband and I love the Tahoe area and we’ve been looking for the right house for years. We found this great house in Soda Springs and talked my parents into buying it with us. Our family has so much fun up there! We like to ski/board, snow shoe, hike, bike, kayak, play horseshoes and cards, eat, drink, and generally enjoy life! Because the house is big, it holds the whole family – three generations. It’s a wonderful place to get together and we really enjoy sharing it with others and hearing their stories!
Owner purchased this House in 2007
Why Owner chose Soda Springs
Soda Springs is a really great area. It’s a very small town with a Mom & Pop grocery store, a couple of ski/board rental shops, and sometimes a gas station! Everyone says it’s what Tahoe used to look like. Soda Springs offers the perfect small town atmosphere and we have Truckee, with all of it's ammenities, just 15 minutes away. We have Donner Lake and Ice Lakes within five minutes of the house and a creek a really short walk away. Sugar Bowl, Boreal, Donner Ski Ranch, Soda Springs Ski Resort, and Royal Gorge are between one and five minutes away. We have neighbors, but don’t live in a neighborhood with someone right next door. There are pine trees everywhere!

Such and awesome time we came back during the same season
We stayed for the first time at this awesome mountain home in January of this year and we immediately booked again for a second trip with another group of family friends this past March/April weekend.
We had a great time and these were the key highlights of our trip this go around:
- Amenities, sleeping arrangements and the house were all great for our group of 5 adults, 9 kids and puppies (dog friendly, which was super helpful for us)
- Close to awesome ski resorts - we drove 5 min down towards Donner Ski Ranch, but Sugarbowl (even closer), Soda Springs and even Boreal are all within 5-10 min drive. This made it possible for us to come back for lunch and go back to play in the snow
- We took a break from the snow one day and head down about 15 min towards Donner Lake. There we were able to enjoy the State park and beautiful scenery
- Cooking facilities (BBQ) and kitchen, seating arrangements, etc all great for our group, especially with younger kids (they had their own setup and play arrangements on the 1st floor)
Overall, it was an awesome weekend trip and many memories made with our family and friends! Would definitely go back for an awesome time!
It’s a great cabin. Adults and kids in my group all have fun
Kids had great time at downstairs while adults enjoyed talk and wine at upstairs.
Wonderful Relaxing Weekend in the snow
We had a party of 15 (4 families of adults and children) and this house was perfect for our group for the following reasons:
1. There was a split level where the kids could play (1st floor) on their own and adults could have time in our own space on the 2nd floor.
2. It was more than spacious with plenty of areas to hang out and relax
3. We were blessed with awesome timing as earlier in the week, a nice snowfall turned our weekend into a winter paradise. Kids could play with the snow on the front balcony (plenty of room) and we were able to carve out a snow sledding area behind the house
4. Very close to ski resorts (Boreal was less than 15 min away)
5. The house was stocked with all the amenities you could need - we BBQ'd, played pool, borrowed some of the sleds and made use of the extra blankets and snow shoes.
Overall great place for families with young kids! Kitchen was also stocked with pots, pans, utensils, some spices - all things you could need for cooking up nice meals in the snow.
Hosts are super responsive and helpful - made our stay really easy.
We loved it so much we are going back again this spring!
Convenient location, well equipped cabin.
Getting to the property is quite easy even when it was already dark when we get there. We settled down quickly with the instructions/welcome guide provided by the owner. Our stay was too short to enjoy all the attraction nearby but location was supposed to be very convenient for Soda Springs resort. Unfortunately it was closed due to lack of new snow. We ended up going to Boreal which is was also relatively easy drive from the cabin.
The property turned out to be better than we expected, aside from the game room (pool, table tennis), most appliances were newer than it looks in the Ads. They actually have 2 good size Smart TV (not the old CRT as in the picture) and was able to use the active Netflix account to watch Movie while others are playing games and pool. Kitchen practically has all you need, in case you missed to bring along stuffs. There are even Winter garments and shoes, may not have your size but there is a good chance it can be used by those missing to pack their own (my wife was able to borrow a pair of shoes, she thought it was more comfortable than the one she brought). And there were sports equipment in the garage that can be used for other outdoor activities. We simply do not have enough time.
One thing we observed, the hot water pressure seem to be intermittent. It was more evident when we were rushing to prepare for the morning check-out and all bathroom were simultaneously used for an extended period. But it was quite a minor setback to the overall very nice experience during our stay.
Great! Especially with kids (game room)
The house is well maintained and clean. It had everything we needed from utensils and stuff in the kitchen to the bathrooms. The game room was great for kids; but it did get a bit cold in there at night (with temps around freezing) despite having a portable heater in addition to the fireplace. The house is off of a main road so you will hear cars driving by and the train especially at night. So if you are looking for more of a secluded, in the woods experience this may not be for you. On the other hand the house was conveniently located, close to ski resorts, Donner Lake, and Truckee. The owner was easy to reach. All the directions about the house were provided clearly.
Great mountain house
My family and I spent the holiday weekend at this house. Overall the house was fun. The owners had plenty of family oriented games and entertainment. I had a brief phone conversation with the owners and they are kind and friendly.
