SODA SPRINGS CABIN is Close to Royal Gorge and minutes from Sugar Bowl. This cute cabin is warm and cozy, sit in front of the wood stove relax and enjoy the amenities of a TV, DVD, stereo, games and books after a long day of skiing, snowshoeing, sledding or ice-skating. There is no house phone but cell service is good. The cabin has 3 bedrooms. The 2 front bedrooms have queen beds and the back bedroom has a new double size bunk beds. Their is also one double air mattress that can sleep two and be placed in the living area. There is a fully equipped kitchen with all the basic amenities. Daily plow service in the winter with 3 parking spots. Our snow plowing service is key to hit the powder on a storm day and this location will give you the opportunity for first powder tracks and not be left stranded at home..
We had a great time in this Soda Springs cabin! 9 of us slept comfortably (5 were kids)! Warms up fast and easy to use the fire place. Only thing that would be so helpful is a dryer to help dry clothes up after playing in the snow! Loved the market across the way! So easy to get to even after a snow storm that hit us! Also appreciate the daily plow service, we were thankful for that! Would absolutely be back in a heartbeat!
Our two families had a great time in this cabin over Christmas break. There were 10 people all together and it did not feel too crowded. The rooms are very cozy, clean and nicely decorated. Loved the wood-burning stove. The only thing we really missed was a dryer, since our clothes got wet in a snow storm and there was no easy way to dry them for the next day. The location was great - close to Royal Gorge, Boreal, Sugar Bowl and Ski rental shop. Overall, it was a very pleasant experience.
Family of four (two adult children) stayed for one week skiing at Boreal - only minutes away. The property was perfect: comfortable beds, well-equipped kitchen, warm lounge area for sharing adventure stories. Shop literally 30 seconds from the front door did a great ski-gear rental. I honestly can't imagine any improvement on this property for a first ski experience: brilliant!
Well maintained property.. Perfect for 4 people but can have up to 6. Owner very kind and responsive. Cheap ski rentals right across the street in the deli. Bring your Apple TV or chromecast.
My husband, 7-year-old, and I stayed at this cabin for 3 nights in February. We found the location extremely convenient for skiing at Sugar Bowl and Royal Gorge, which are just 5-10 minutes away, and we appreciated cutting some travel time off our drive from and back to the Bay Area vs. staying at Lake Tahoe. Having the store directly across the street was great for picking up milk, our morning coffee, etc. They also offer downhill ski rentals for anyone interested in that.
The cottage itself is clean, comfortable, and well stocked (e.g., shampoo, soap, games, books galore, pots/pans, plastic wrap, etc.). It's located directly on the main road, so there is some road noise, especially in the front bedroom, so very light sleepers might want to choose the middle or back bedroom. Wifi worked great for us, the shower was good, beds comfortable, plenty of space... In short, we had a great stay.
If you're looking for a newer home with a view or picturesque setting, this may not be the place for you. But if you're looking for comfortable surroundings and convenient location at a good price, then this place should fit the bill. We would come back again.
This property is perfectly located if your desire is to ski Sugar Bowl. We had two families with a little dog and there was plenty of space for us all to cook, relax and sleep. The wood stove was easy to use and kept the entire place warm. There are three nice sized bedrooms that were bright and comfortable. If you needed any extra supplies there was a small convenience store across the street which also doubles as a ski rental place (bargain). The place was very clean and comfortable. The only negative I could see is the lack of cable for the TV. The TV is a nice flat screen and you can stream via the internet as well as play DVD's. We used our Direct TV app on the Ipad and brought an HDMI cable to plug into the TV and that was our solution. (The reason for 4 out of 5 stars) Jim the owner was very responsive before our arrival, we had a few questions, and he was great. We loved this cabin and will most definitely stay there again.
