We would love for you to visit Hidden Serenity Lodge in beautiful Tahoe City.

Hidden Serenity Lodge is located in a very quiet setting. The wrap-around deck and bedrooms face the forest with complete privacy. We are steps away from Tahoe National Forest with miles of hiking/back country skiing for your pleasure.

While the setting around Hidden Serenity is extremely quiet, the location is exceptionally convenient as well. We're half a mile from fine dining, grocery stores, shopping, and beautiful Lake Tahoe itself. It's a 2 minute car ride or 10 minute walk to get there. Talk about convenience!

Our beautiful living room faces the forest with huge windows for your viewing pleasure. If you prefer to face the other way, you'll have a view of our wood burning stove and LED 3D TV, with Blu-ray player, surround sound, Netflix, and cable. For the music lovers, we have convenient hookups for your iPhone/Android/smart phone into our built-in speakers.

We have 3 spacious bedrooms and a loft in the master bedroom. Our bedrooms each have a queen sized bed, with memory foam mattress toppers as well as oversized down comforters for your pleasure. We have two pull-out sofas in the living room and den as well.

Our bathrooms come stocked with toe heaters. Step onto the memory foam mats with those babies blowing and you'll be ready to start your day on even the coldest Tahoe morning.

Relax in the sauna after a long day of skiing, riding, hiking, or whatever your physical pleasure may be.

Our kitchen comes fully stocked with all the standard cookware you would need. We also provide basic oils and condiments. We have a full gas stove and convection oven ready for use.

The dining room provides a beautiful view of the forest and is large enough to fit 8.

If wine is your pleasure, we have plenty of wine glasses to help you unwind after your day.

We have brand new LG washer/dryer for taking care of any emergencies or if you'd just like to freshen up your gear before hitting the slopes again.

Hidden Serenity lodge can accommodate as many as 5 cars (although we'd love it if you carpooled!).

Note: There is an attached studio, where the owners may be staying on occasion. But you won't even notice us as we'll completely respect your privacy. It's your get-away, and we wouldn't want to intrude. But if you'd like to come say 'hi' or ask for advice, we'd be happy to help!

About Peter Hsu

Hidden Serenity Lodge is owned jointly by my family and my parents.

My fiance and I live in the South Bay Area. We're both Bay Area natives. I attended UCLA for school and have been a software engineer ever since. My fiance is a nurse, which is great for when I bang myself up on the slopes. We're avid snowboarders, climbers, hikers, and surfers (although that's hard to do at the lake!). We love to travel, which is what brought us here to Lake Tahoe in the first place.

My parents are my partners in owning Hidden Serenity. My father has worked as a USPS employee until his recent retirement. My mother still works at Kaiser, where she's been for over 30 years. I wanted to find them a place with clean air and convenience that they could enjoy, and we're lucky to have found it at Hidden Serenity Lodge.

Peter Hsu purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Peter Hsu chose Tahoe City

We live in the South Bay Area, but found we were visiting Lake Tahoe far too often, so we started looking for a place in the Summer of 2012. We visited a few different houses, but we fell in love immediately with the surrounding and location of Hidden Serenity Lodge.

We'd love to share the intimacy of the location with you.

So good! Fits many people and kid friendly. Close to ski resorts.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. Tahoe just got the biggest snow dump in years when we were up there and it made for some really fun snow play for the kids in the balcony in the back. We had 4 adults and 4 children. Children were ranging in age from 3-6 years.

The cabin had a very usable kitchen. Lots of room for kids to play in. The master bedroom actually has two queen sized beds. One at the 2nd story level and then another higher up in the loft area. I thought that was pretty cool. The loft was the only part of the house that wasn't kid friendly. We didn't allow our small children up there because they could actually fall through the banister on the spiral staircase. If you can control your kids, this isn't an issue :)

There were lots of little things that just made this place over the top for us. The sauna was one of them. The foot warmers in the bathrooms were another. The warmers worked so well that it practically functioned as a space heater for the bathrooms. Great for people who don't like coming out of the shower because its all cold.

The Squaw Valley/Alpine Ski Resort were only 5 miles away. If you are going skiing, plan on getting to the resorts by 8:30a even though the lifts open at 9a because in peak season you're going to be hitting traffic going in and parking is limited. They have world-class slopes here.

Lastly, the place was super clean. For those people that don't wear shoes in the house (you know who you are) this place is for you. I walked around inside all night and the bottom of my socks didn't turn that dirty grey-brown color it normally does on floors that haven't been cleaned in a while.

The hosts were very cordial and personable. I would definitely be coming back here again.

Great House & Location

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay "Hidden Serenity Lodge". The house is modern and clean, but still gives you the mountain cabin vibe. VRBO lists this as a (3) bedroom house, but the loft area above the master bedroom can be used as a 4th bedroom, which was great for our kids. We were able to get seperation from the kids, but shoving them in the TV room, while the adults lounged in the dining room. The kitchen is small and a little awkward, but is modern and works just fine for our needs! We are definitely planning on renting again the next time we are in Tahoe City!

Perfect Labor Day by the Lake

  • 5 of 5

Perfect house for our group of 8 (might be a little tight with 10 people). Great kitchen, dining room (we cooked the first night and it was so nice having a large table we could all fit around!), comfy beds. House was very clean, though couch has some stains (it's a white couch). Location was perfect for a summer visit, walkable to town and to the lake. Only complaint is the lack of blinds/shades, but we ended up waking up early and enjoying the full day :-). Peter was also really easy to work with and was very flexible with our arrival and departure times. Would definitely rent again.

Perfect location! Hidden Serenity Lodge is less than half a mile to gorgeous Lake Tahoe, but is in an exceptionally quiet setting.

A short 10 minute walk to Lake Tahoe, as well as all other amenities of Tahoe City - fine dining, shopping, ski/snow shops, parks, bike rentals, kayak rentals, and so much more.

For the skiers and riders: We're less than 20 minutes to Squaw Valley and Alpine and 25 minutes to Northstar at Tahoe.

Hidden Serenity Lodge borders Tahoe National Forest, with miles of hiking/back country skiing available.
