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 4 cars in winter and 5 cars the rest of the year (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!
NOTE: The pricing includes the 10% Placer County Tax
Guests have full access to the cabin.
Interaction with Guests
We live in the bay area, so we are generally not around when we have guests. However, we are occasionally in the attached studio. We would love to hang out if the guests prefer, or are happy to stay incognito and allow the guests to enjoy their privacy.
We love being a short walk to downtown Tahoe City. The lake is 5 minutes away, as are fine dining, grocery stores, massage/yoga, shopping and plenty more. There are bike/snowboard/ski/paddleboard/kayak rentals all within walking distance so you can avoid all the traffic during busy times.
No smoking allowed. Cabin must be left in clean condition (dishes washed, etc). Security deposit refunded after cleaning and verification. No pets allowed.
The cabin was really good. Though it was a short trip, we had a wonderful time during our stay. Peter was very helpful and he kept us quite informed. He was really flexible in adjusting our check-in/check-out times based on our schedule. Overall, it's a nice and beautiful place. It's close to all activities and businesses, and yet, it's secluded and serene in it's own way.
Beautiful house and hiking trails right within walking distance. And Peter was super nice and helpful. Would definitely stay here again!
Peter was a great host. Very easy, straight forward communication. He was able to flex check out time, which was very helpful for our group.
The property is a perfect getaway. We found everything we needed.
Peter is a fantastic host and the house is beautiful. We arrived and everything was clean and organized. Peter emailed me an information packet detailing everything I needed to know for the weekend (wifi, stereo, sauna info). Did I mention the sauna? It seats 2-3 people and is the perfect way to unwind after a day of skiing.
The house is a 10 minute walk to popular TC restaurants such as Fat Cat, Christy Hill, and Moe's BBQ. But when you are staying at the house, it feels like you are alone in the woods. I'll definitely be back next time I come to Tahoe!!
Peter makes it truly easy and casual to stay at Hidden Serenity lodge. The home was immaculate upon arrival, and we didn't want to leave when the time came!
Everyone who made it up to Tahoe on this trip has taken note of the cabin, as we would all return on our next trip.
About the Host, Peter
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.
