Welcome to our custom cedar log cabin with gorgeous views and a real alpine feel. Walk to Royal Gorge trails or drive just minutes to Sugar Bowl ski area or Soda Springs family snowplay area. Up to 8 people can comfortably relax and enjoy the beauty of the mountains, our private lake/beach, mountain hiking or biking. The home has three levels, a 1 car garage, large deck and an 18 foot glass prow. The cabin is very clean and I look forward to welcoming you and your family and friends soon.
The home is very open and has post and beam construction with solid cedar logs and pine ceiling. It is located on one of the highest points in Serene Lakes and has beautiful views of the local mountains and is peaceful and quiet. The side windows of the great room are large bay windows and there are no visible electrical lines on my street. Across the street are the Royal Gorge trails and the forest.
The rooms are as follows:
Master bedroom - a queen bed with down comforter, 2 dressers for clothes, shelves, a closet and sitting chair.
Outside Master Bedroom/Den - a foldout bed that is ideal for a child that wants to sleep near his mom and dad in the next door master.
Guest bedroom - a queen bed with down comforter and dresser, shelves and large closet. The large heated guest bedroom is downstairs off an enclosed and insulated and heated hallway attached to the main home and completely separated from the garage.
Loft - 2 queen beds (one bed is a futon), both beds have down comforters, hangers for clothes and a dresser. The loft also has a large area for kids to play.
Heated bathroom with shower and sink
Large heated bathroom with shower and tub and sink downstairs off garage
Extra 3rd bathroom sink on main level
Full kitchen that is well stocked and dining table
Large great room with wonderful heater and built in humidifier (just add water)
Large Dryer - great for taking care of clothes that are wet from playing in the snow
2 USB ports for charging in great room
During the winter, access to the cabin is through the downstairs main entrance or garage. Excluding two storage areas downstairs you will have access to the entire cabin.
In general, I will meet guests at their time of arrival, provide the keys, give them a short tour and be on my way.
I live in Auburn (less than 1 hour from cabin) and will be just a text message or call away.
As my guests, you'll have access to the private Serene Lakes Homeowner's Beach about 3/4 mile away. The beach area provides a stunning view of Castle Peak. The beach is about a 20 minute walk from the cabin.
I have snow saucers and snow shoes you may use. Any use of my equipment is at the guest's own risk and I do not assume any liability. I also have binoculars to enjoy the wildlife and local views.

I am very happy to provide recommendations on area attractions, hiking, mountain biking, lakes, restaurants, or skiing.
In the winter months, the driveway will typically be plowed once a day, conditions permitting. If your car is in the driveway in winter, it may not get plowed. The County manages all street plowing in the neighborhood.
The garage provides a nice way to keep your vehicle out of the snow and there is a large area for storing skis and other equipment in the garage in addition to your vehicle.
I have a variety of wonderful books for reading, a number of fun board games for kids and family, a topo map of the area and lots of DVD movies for kids and adults you can watch. The TV has an HDMI connection port. I also have a 5 foot HDMI to HDMI cable and a 6 foot HDMI to VGA male cable if you want to play video from your computer.
The Summit Restaurant about 2 miles up the road has satellite TV.
There is a storage room downstairs off the garage (and also a small under stair closet) that I keep my personal things and those two small areas are private and not accessible to guests.
In the winter, this area can easily receive over 500 inches of snow per year. Please plan your trip accordingly as I cannot be responsible for missed nights due to weather or travel delays.
The wood stove is tricky to use and so a built-in forced air space heater is provided for guests in the great room which does a wonderful job of keeping you warm and comfortable with push button temperature adjustment and a built in humidifier. Please do not use the wood stove.
The cabin is set-up to accommodate 8 guests. So, 8 is the maximum number of guest allowed in the cabin without prior approval from the host.
Please leave the cabin as nice and clean as you found it (i.e. kitchen, dishes, cooking range, microwave, etc.) and let us know if anything has been damaged during your stay.
If guests go past the posted check-out time, an extra charge may be made unless the guest has written permission from the host so that the cabin is available for the next guest on time.
Please remove shoes inside the cabin after the initial walk through with host.
No smoking or open fires anywhere in the vicinity of the cabin. If cigarette butts are found, after a stay, a guest may be charged an additional fee.
Strong odors that cannot be removed with standard cleaning to include incense, residue cooking odors, smoke (absolutely no smoking), etc. may be charged an additional fee to remove the odor.
For safety and security, please do not leave garage door open during the day or night or to accommodate a very large car or truck. The parking underneath the front deck serves as a nice area to keep a large or additional 2nd vehicle partially out of the snow. Although we do our best to keep the cabin accessible, in big storms you may have to shovel as well.
Serene Lakes is a quiet community. Please respect the setting and your neighbors by enjoying its peace and respecting early and late hours of quiet.
