Sierra Retreat

Our Serene Lakes cabin is located in an idyllic setting for year-round family fun. It is one block from the lakes and a short walk to the beach at Ice Lakes Lodge. There are many activities close by to enjoy in both summer and winter.

In the summer, the beach is a great place for kids play. Swimming is allowed in the larger lake and non-motorized boats can be used in both. There are also many hiking and biking trails in the area.

We are minutes from several ski resorts. Sugar Bowl, Soda Springs and Boreal are all conveniently located within a few miles drive. Royal Gorge is home to some of the best cross country skiing in the world. Its trails wind around the neighborhood and the Royal Gorge trail head is a short walk from our front door.

Our bright and sunny cabin sleeps eight comfortably, (two queen sized beds, one full bed, and a set of twin bunk beds) and can accommodate three additional guests on two pullout sofa beds. The master bedroom looks out over woodland and the two upstairs bedrooms also have great views.

We have conventional propane heating, plus a log fireplace in the great room for cozy winter evenings. The two lounge areas in the great room are perfect to gather your family around a board game or movie, and it opens out onto a wide deck. We have a large, well-equipped kitchen that has all the amenities for family cooking. Our dining table easily seats ten. Other features include a foosball table, Wi-Fi access to DSL internet, a full size washer/dryer, and large single-car garage.

Come spend some time in our cabin and you’ll want to return again and again.

wonderful cabin

  • 5 of 5

Very nice, spacious cabin, upgraded and well maintained, comfortable bedrooms, large living area, and very well stacked kitchen. It took us a while to find a large refrigerator in the laundry room downstairs.

Perfect for families in the winter

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a wonderful stay at this Sierra Retreat. A 10 minute drive from skiing. A driveway for the little ones to sled. Tons of snow. Felt like a winter wonderland and a short walk from snow-shoeing on the lakes. The house is spacious and comfortable and the kitchen is well-stocked for lots of cooking! Our 4-year old cried when we had to leave!

Great Location, but we had challenges sleeping

  • 3 of 5

My sister's family and my family went there together for a skip trip. The cabin is beautiful. The living area is spacious and the kids liked playing with the snow in the balcony. The owner was very responsive to all of our inquiries and was very helpful in the process. We went to Soda Springs and to Boreal, and both were very close to the lodge. The location is amazing! However, I don't think I will go back for 2 reasons:


The biggest challenge we had was that the heating vent in the room downstairs is set right below the bed, and the room was at least 10 degrees hotter than the rest of the house. The kids kept waking up crying and feeling ill, and we couldn't sleep either. We ultimately escaped into the living room and slept on the couch. We were all exhausted at the end of the trip because of lack of good sleep. My sister's family who had the upstairs bedroom was fine though.


We also struggled because of lack of hot water. Only 2 of us could shower in the evening because the hot water ran out shortly after. We don't take long showers so it was surprising and disappointing. We wanted to all take a hot shower after a long day of skiing, and we couldn't do that.

If the owners can fix these two things, I think it will be an amazing place for both the winter and summer.

Great Cabin on Serene Lakes

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for four days in August and had a lovely time. The owner was super helpful and gave us recommendations for local activities/restaurants, and checked in to make sure all was well during our visit. Our family enjoyed spending time on the deck and in the living room. The cabin was great for making meals together and the kitchen was fully stocked with all the tools we needed. The rooms were perfect and cozy. We loved being so close to the lake. Hopefully we'll be able to come back in the winter! Thank you!

even better than the pictures, super owner!!

  • 5 of 5

Its a very nice cabin and the owner is great. The interior is was bigger than I expected (we were all surprised), and it feels new and cozy, and its a very nice neighborhood, and its completely outfitted. The owner was great, easy to get in touch with, very responsive. A week after we left, we realized we'd left a prized lego car, and he shipped it right out to us. We had a great stay.
