Quietly nestled in the Northern part of the Sierra Nevada Mountain range is the stunning Serene Lakes and Donner Summit known as “The Summit”. Serene Lakes consists of approximately 2,400 acres ranging from quaint Old Tahoe style cabins to grand and luxurious mountain homes. There are nearly 1000 residential lots in the development with 825 private homes built. These neighborhoods are conveniently located close to Interstate 80 making access easy to Truckee and Reno Nevada for dining, shopping and entertainment. It’s a nice little community where there are small town activities like community BBQ’s, a very traditional 4th of July parade, chile cook-off, and Serene Lakes Days. This calm and peaceful neighborhood has been dubbed “Sierra’s best kept secret.”
Home to Sugar Bowl, The Royal Gorge, Soda Springs and several other ski resorts Donner Summit is a winter paradise. The surrounding forests offer many lakes, streams, trails and campgrounds making for a perfect playground for outdoor enthusiasts. There are two beautiful mountain lakes in the middle of the community, and in the summer there is a sandy beach providing lake access for swimming, volleyball, sailing, canoeing, and playing in the sand.
