Fabulous Weekend, Amazing Cabin, Perfect for a Large Group of multiple Families!!!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for 3 nights and wished it was longer. We ended up having our whole family able to make it, a total of 10 adults and 8 kids, ranging from ages 2 to 72. I have to say, it slept everyone very comfortably. The write-up states that the cabin is deep in the woods and we almost avoided it because of this, however it is close to everything yet you feel deep away from everything. The deck in the back was ideal. We were able to watch the kids play all day adventuring around the cabin and into the woods. We were hoping for snow but the kids made like there was. They hunted for snow and brought it back and packed it into some of the hills around the cabin and sledded basically on wet dirt. I have to say, if there was snow this would be the PERFECT cabin to have fun sledding around. Plenty of great runs and you can watch the kids from the huge deck area. We enjoyed playing board games on the outside deck as well as around the large table in the dining area. We enjoyed having a fire in the fire pit out back. The bunk house was amazing, the kids loved it. The bunk room was ideal for our kids who ranged from 8-16 years old. The bedrooms for the adults were perfect as well, since two of them had extra futon beds we were able to have our smaller ones sleep with us, ages 2-4 but could have even slept adults they were full size futons. We had fun adventuring on the trails out back and even took one into town to get a little treat for the kiddos (a bit of a long hike but we needed it). We've ALL already discussed our next trip and it has this cabin as our first choice!!! You won't be disappointed if you rent it. Hope this write-up helps paint of picture of great family memories that for us will last a life time!!!

Awesome Cabin

  • 5 of 5
We rented this cabin for the weekend for my buddies bachelor party and it was awesome. The inside is well taken care of and beautiful, More than enough room for the 12 guys that we had. The property management company that you go through is super helpful also. We spent all of our time on the back deck hanging out. Its a quiet neighborhood so you can't get too loud but we had a great time here.

Not Clean/Old Mattresses

  • 1 of 5
Home seemed to be nice at one time and at first glance is decent. They have put new Vizio TVs in every room and the kitchen is large and spacious with lots of cooking utensils etc.

The reason for the low rating is due to the cleanliness and upkeep of the beds throughout the house. After settling in, it becomes very obvious the house has not been "really cleaned" in years. The bathroom exhaust fans are caked with dust, the kitchen sink has a leak underneath for what appears to have been a very long time due to the fact it reaks of mold and there are copious amounts of spiderwebs in between the boards of the deck and rafters outside. In addition the master bedroom sink is clogged with hair so water barely trickles down. If you want a somewhat clean environment while staying here be prepared to bring your own sponges, dish soap, soft scrub, trash bags, etc. as they provide NOTHING. On to the remaining issues, each and every mattresses desperately need to be replaced, they are old, creaky, lumpy and are loaded with dust mites. In addition the upstairs air conditioner does not work so if you're there on a hot day be prepared to hang out downstairs because it is the only cool space. Hopefully the owners or property managers will address these issues and provide a better experience for vacationers in the future.

Owner's Response: Nicole,
Thanks for your input, it's appreciated! We have new cleaners and so perhaps they need more training. We will have our cleaners address the issues you brought up.
The house does NOT have air conditioning, just fans and a lot of windows with normally cool breezes even in the summer, so I'm sorry about the confusion. (I'm guessing few, if any, of the rental houses in Shaver Lake have air conditioning.) We scrub and repaint the stairs and railings on the decks every year, and sweep webs away often, it's just that in the mountains there are spiders everywhere and a lot of pine pollen that blows into the webs so it gets messy looking very quickly. Sorry about that.
As far as kitchen supplies such as trash bags, soap, etc. we don't supply them, as stated in our listing, but we normally have lots of sponges and cleaning supplies, but sometimes a guest takes them when they leave and no one notices, so thanks for alerting us.
Mattresses get replaced every five years with good quality mattresses and we enclose them in waterproof covers, washed often and replaced yearly, so I'm surprised at the comment about "each and every one of them", but I will go ahead and replace them ahead of schedule.
Again, your feedback is appreciated. I'm not trying to be dismissive. We really do strive to keep everything in the house in tip-top shape. I personally repaint the stairway twice a year, paint the kitchen and living room yearly, and we replace couches, chairs and other furniture as soon as they show any sign of wear. Dishes and plates, cups and glasses, silverware, pots and pans are all replaced often with good quality, matching items, and we have a crew come in and do Spring cleaning including all windows, oven, stove, cabinets, ceilings, grates, etc. We constantly rake the yard, pick up all the cigarette butts, clean the roof, etc. We've rarely had complaints about cleanliness--most people compliment us on how nice and clean everything is.

UPDATE August 2014: we have replaced mattresses early. All mattresses and pillows are enclosed in mite-proof, dust-proof zipped cases (they are also bed-bug proof, but still, please don't bring any bugs with you!) Back stair rails are repainted BUT spiders are active and pine dust does blow!

Artistically decorated, friendly cabin

  • 5 of 5
The cabin is clean, roomy, and is beautifully decorated. There are no "mass produced" artworks on the walls. They are origionals. Appliances all work and are good quality brands. The whirlpool is a jacuzzi nd many kitchen appliances are brands like kitchen aid.

There are great hikes and there are even trails next to the cabin. The lake is a short drive away, and it was a warm swimming temperature when I went. There are all kinds of boat rentals nearby, and I notice because I sometimes like to rent kayaks. I went to the falls which is a shrt hike away and it was beautiful. There are also swimming (fishing) holes one can hike to.

I enjoyed my visit and will return again. I would reccomend it for either a business conference, retreat, or workshop, or a family gathering. I went wih family.

very spacious, comfortable, entertaining accommodation at Shaver's lake
  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this cabin for a week. Our group had a wide range of ages from 8 years to 80. This place was wonderfully setup to accommodate all our needs. It was fun to stay home where the large living spaces were great to hang out with rest of the family. The man cave was great for the youngsters to party late night without disturbing my 80 years old mom. The kitchen and dining space was great for having meals together. Wifi connection kept us connected to the rest of the world. Hiking trails behind the house took us to interesting places. Shaver's Lake was only a few minutes drive from here. The owner was very accessible and accommodating. Overall we had a wonderful stay.
