Welcome to Van Norden Lodge, brought to you by the creative studio, Colossus Mfg.

The space
Van Norden Lodge boasts 4 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms, including two luxurious master suites with heated flooring throughout the en-suite bathrooms, a cozy camp-themed queen room across from a bathroom with a tub, a kid’s bunk room with an attached half bathroom, as well as an entire bonus floor with a game room and play area. Plenty of room for families with kids to enjoy each other while all having their own space.

Enjoy a hot tub and sauna after a day on the slopes at one of the four nearby downhill ski resorts - Sugarbowl, Soda Springs, Donner Ski Ranch, and Boreal - or the country’s biggest cross-country ski resort, Royale Gorge, which is at our back door.

Linens, towels, and toiletries provided. The house also has basic equipment for children including a pack-n-play, travel high chair, toys, sleds, etc.

We are happy to share our space with people who want to use it as a retreat to enjoy quality time with friends and family, but please note this is not a party rental.

After a 10-year-stint working in PR and advertising in both SF and NYC, we moved to Sacramento with our family and co-founded a design shop, Colossus Mfg., focused on hospitality and residential design. Our goal is to bring experiences to the community through physical spaces... because we believe good design can follow you wherever you travel!
