Built in 2000 with 2800 sq. ft. of housing, Serena Retreat was designed as a family gathering place. The Serene Lakes area was chosen because of its old-fashioned, family-friendly mountain community and slow pace mountain living. To take advantage of the spectacular views, the cabin is set back from the street and built on several levels.
The first level has the creekside bedroom with a deck overlooking the creek and a queen size bed. The mountainside bedroom, also containing a queen size bed, has views to the forest and Royal Gorge trails behind the house. The second level of the house has an incredible open floor plan, making this place perfect for entertaining. The loft and third bedroom sits on the top floor which has stunning views of the lake.
The cabin features a fabulous BBQ and well-equipped open plan kitchen, however if you don’t want to cook, Truckee has many fabulous dining experiences.
There are many incredible ski resorts such as Sugar Bowl and Boreal within minutes drive of the house. Soda Springs Mountain Resort is so close that even during a big day of skiing you can still go home for lunch. Royal Gorge, the largest cross country ski resort in North America, is a few blocks away, allowing you to put your cross country skis on at the front door and have a ski around the frozen lake in the winter.
Whether you want to be active or just relax, the Serena Retreat will more than meet your expectations and just might become your year after year must-do experience.

Great cabin, we love the Serene Lakes area and have stayed there before. Fantastic location and well-appointed. The rental agency was also very helpful.
We loved our stay at this home! So close to Soda Springs ski and play which made it wonderful with our grandchildren. The house was very clean and perfect for our family of 6 adults and 3 young children plus a baby! We loved staying there and will continue each year on our annual family snow trip! Thank you!!
We rented Serena Retreat over New Year's and feel so lucky to have found it! What a perfect spot for family to reconnect. Between the lake, the sledding behind the house, and the skiing in such close proximity, we couldn't have asked for a better location. The house was also just right- with a well stocked kitchen and comfortable bedrooms. Serene Lakes is a perfect spot and we will definitely be back! No one wanted to leave..... Donner Summit Rentals was great in making everything easy and accessible.
Our family rented a house in Soda Springs for Christmas. The location across from the frozen lake was just perfect and beautiful. It was just the ideal White Christmas. The house was extremely conducive to a family gathering with a big kitchen open to the enormous living space with floor to ceiling windows that brought the outdoors inside. The location was very close to many ski areas and a little general store that saved us long trips to buy groceries. The management at Donner Summit is the best I've ever dealt with. They quickly answered any questions we had about the facilities before we arrived and were extremely helpful after we arrived.
We love this cabin. It was our second stay here, once in the summer, once in the winter. It was amazing both times. It is beautiful, in wonderful condition. My daughters were in heaven playing in the snow right in the cabin backyard. We built snowmen, a sledding run, a fort, etc. Great cabin and wonderful location.
I rented Serene Retreat, which was close to Lake Mary where my son's wedding was planned. What a wonderful experience the entire weekend became. The cabin was just spectacular- the size, view, ambience, ease of use, and location close to other wedding party members and friends, made everything perfect. Everything we could have needed was carefully thought out and stocked in the cabin. All went smoothly beginning with Donner Summit Rentals and ending with a perfect stay in a very accommodating and beautiful home. I really didn't want to leave!
