Close to 5 ski resorts, Sugarbowl, Boreal, Soda Springs, Royal Gorge, Donner Ski Ranch. In Serene Lakes, a short walk to Lake Serena with swimming, paddle boarding, canoeing, fishing and a sandy beach for picnics and building castles.
With 3 little kids of our own, we know what it takes to actually enjoy a Tahoe vacation. Come to Hygge Cabin and relax together. Cook food that your kids will eat, do laundry when you need to, give everyone their own room so you can sleep peacefully!
Our cabin is designed to help restore your connection to your family. We are inspired by the Danish concept of "Hygge" (hue-gah) which roughly translates to the warm, cozy feeling of spending time with family and friends. We have tried to infuse our cabin with the feeling of Hygge, by cultivating a comfortable, relaxing and slightly magical atmosphere for you to make happy memories with your loved ones.
We offer four bedrooms (three upstairs and one downstairs) and two bathrooms. The bathrooms are small and have only showers no bath tubs, but the water is hot and the towels are fluffy. We hope to add a bath tub in the near future so if this is a requirement for you please check back with us soon!
The dining space and kitchen open to the living room and beautiful wood burning fireplace.
Hygge Cabin is just 25-30 minutes to other top ski resorts like Northstar, Squaw, and Alpine Meadows and the Ritz Carlton Spa. We are close to Lake Tahoe, the Pacific Crest trail, Donner Lake and the Historic town of Truckee for shopping and dining. Only minutes to world class rock climbing, hiking, biking, horseback riding, dog sledding, remote alpine lakes, dark starry skies, and the vast wilderness of Tahoe national forest.
We searched for more than 5 years to find just the right vacation spot for our family. When we got to know Serene Lakes we knew this was the spot! After renting many vacation homes in Tahoe and elsewhere we set out to make our cabin the easiest most comfortable rental for other families. For the same price as a hotel room (often less) you can rent Hygge Cabin and have all the comforts of home. No cramming into hotel rooms and trying to be quiet while kiddos nap. No wasting money on restaurants that you can't enjoy because your kids are too noisy and won't eat that food you ordered anyway! Come to our Hygge Cabin and actually enjoy your time together. We provide games, books, blocks and toys to entertain your family as well as snow sleds in winter and beach chairs and sand toys in the summer. There is a portable high chair and pack n' play for our littlest guests. Cabinet locks, outlet covers and baby gates also available.
Serene Lakes is a special community, a hidden gem in the hustle and bustle of Tahoe weekends. It is quiet, family friendly and well… serene!
Coming to Serene lakes in the summer feels like taking a trip back in time to the 70s. Here kids ride bikes through the streets to the beach snack shack to buy ice cream. Teenagers push each other off the swim platform while little ones share sand toys and work in packs to dig moats on the beach. Adults play volleyball, fish, paddle canoes across the lake or sip drinks from their beach chairs. Everyone seems happy… it’s like a movie scene!
Spend your days hiking through the sierra meadows or up the mountains for breathtaking views, bike right from the cabin’s front door. Use the canoe or paddle board to get out on the lake, swim in the clear water or explore the two tiny islands in Lake Serena and hunt or pirate treasure with your kids!
In the evenings the smell of food being grilled fills the warm mountain air and families schlep their blankets and lawn chair to the homeowners beach to get a good spot for the outdoor movie on Saturday nights. Volunteers pass out fresh popcorn and s’more supplies around the fire pit.
Come winter, Serene lakes is transformed into a winter wonderland buried in deep powder. It is not unusual for the snow to pile 15+ feet high along roads. Winter activities abound! World class downhill and cross country skiing, sledding, ice skating, snowshoeing and dog sledding are all close by! Dogs are welcomed on the ski trails, and the whole family will find activities that suit them. Whether your group wants to adventure on the steep slopes, build a snowman or just read by the fire- this is the place to do it.
In summer, guests will find a BBQ and picnic table on the welcoming back deck just outside the kitchen. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need to prepare a meal. Guests are welcome to use the canoe and paddle board. Full size washer and dryer in the laundry room available for guest use.
In winter, there is parking for two cars in the driveway. No street parking is allowed in winter due to snow removal. Boot and glove dryers are located in the entry way- no more soggy mittens!
Please be vigilant about watching for falling snow. Snow falling from trees and roofs and be dangerous. Do not allow children to play near the roof line where they could be crushed by falling snow. Supervise children at all times when playing in the yard. There is a creek at the back of the property which could be dangerous.
Hygge Cabin is our vacation home. We do not live on site and will not be present during your stay. You will have the whole place to yourself! We do have a handyman who is local to the area, if you encounter any problems he can respond quickly and help with whatever you need. This is not a neglected investment property but a well loved and cared for second home. You won't be tripping over our personal belongings but you will see that we take pride in this house and really want you to be comfortable and enjoy your stay at Hygge Cabin.
