PEACEFUL TREETOP RETREAT IN OCKENDON RANCH

Shaver Lake Cabin Rental Photos and Description

5 Bedroom 4.5 Bath With Mountain Views (Sleeps 12)

Beautiful Cabin in Ockendon Ranch. This spacious mountain retreat features 5 bedrooms and 4.5 baths with both front and rear decks as well as a large porch on the bottom level.

Walk in through the front door and enter the main level on which you will find the master suite, a well appointed kitchen with stainless steel appliances and granite countertops. This main floor also includes a large great room and dining area. Walk through french doors that either lead to a very large deck at the rear of the cabin overlooking the pines or the front deck - a perfect spot to enjoy your morning coffee.

The top floor contains 2 bedrooms with queen beds and a full bath as well as a very generous sized loft area that is perfect for curling up with a good book or a game of chess.

The bottom floor has a very large game room with a pool table, ping pong table, Foosball table and dart board. There is also a wet bar/kitchenette and a flat screen TV. Off this main area there are 2 more bedrooms each outfitted with twin over full bunk beds and 2 full baths. This floor also has a media room with a flat screen 3D TV and large DVD library.

The cabin is located 5 minutes from the town of Shaver Lake and approximately 10 minutes from the main marina/boat ramp at the lake for the fishermen and water-skiers in your group. China Peak ski resort is about a 25 minute drive up the road, with Huntington Lake known for the High Sierra Regatta at its base. There is also snow mobile rental at Huntington in the winter. Cross country skiing and hiking are just out the door as are great areas for snow play. Yosemite and Sequoia/Kings Canyon National Parks are easy day trips away.

Peaceful, family time together, fabulous location

  • 5 of 5
We had a truly relaxing, quality family -time week here, in this incredibly spacious and peaceful cabin. After 5 days in San Fran, we were in need of some clean air, sunshine and countryside! We loved the secluded bays at Shaver and swimming in the lovely clear water; the boys hired canoes whilst I went for a pony trek around the lake; we went to Huntington Lake and were shocked to find it drained, but had a lovely walk up the Kaiser pass; we also made the 2 hour drive to Yosemite, which was very enjoyable, although the mirror lake was bone dry!! We had lovely, relaxing afternoons on the deck and some great barbecues, and the boys couldn't get enough of the games room. Star gazing at midnight and counting bats too! We were very sorry to leave such a beautiful place which has been very lovingly kitted out making it a home from home.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind review. I also want to thank you for being such wonderful guests. I enjoyed meeting your wonderful family and only wish you could have visited California in a non-drought year. We are glad you enjoyed your stay, but you will definitely have to come back when we have water! Huntington Lake is usually a beautiful spot to sit and watch the sailboats racing. Can't wait to see you back!

Another Fantastic Stay in Shaver Lake

  • 5 of 5
This was my second stay at the cabin. On my first visit last fall I spent a long weekend with friends. This time I invited my family up for a week. We had a blast! My brother's kids (age 10 and 12) not to mention the adults, really enjoyed having so many fun games to play. We had pool and ping pong tournaments and enjoyed some classic board games like Monopoly and Scatageories. There is plenty of room for everyone. We had a really great week together! Thank you. :)

Smith family, 2014

The cabin couldn't have been more accommodating for our family, we all had such a great time...There were 12 of us total and we all had plenty of room to play and sleep. The game room was the most used other than the well stocked kitchen, it had everything we needed and more...The property owners met us there and showed us around and they even supplied us with wood to burn. We would surely visit this cabin again, maybe in the summer to enjoy the lake......it snowed almost the entire time we were there which made everything just beautiful....the proximity of the local stores were about 5 minutes away which also made things nice.....thanks for sharing your beautiful home with us.......

Owner's Response: We are so glad your family had such a wonderful time at the cabin - and you lucked out and got snow! Thank you for the great care you took with everything. We look forward to you visiting the cabin again. It is nice to get out of the valley and up into the mountains during the summer.

Everything a family could want in a vacation home.

  • 5 of 5
We love Shaver lake & have rented several properties in the area spanning from Auberry to Huntington Lake.
This home may have ruined us for all others.
The communication with the owners is excellent, the home is huge & very well thought out. There is so much to do inside that one could easily spend their entire vacation without stepping outside, but that would be a shame because the location is beautiful as well. It is a very well stocked home with everything one could possibly need. Far from the typical Vacation rental, this space felt like a home. Our family had a great time enjoying all of the amenities it offers. We watched movies in the media room, had a ping pong tournament in the game room & played an epic game of hide & seek with my grandson (this home is huge & had plenty of "hiding" spots, even for my 6'4" husband). We took long hikes in the nearby woods. We even found a tiny patch of snow to play in!
In addition to the "fun" areas of the home, there are quiet spots where my daughter in law could sneak off to read a book & my husband could teach our grandson to play chess.
We really to appreciated the attention the owners gave to every detail in making their vacation home comfortable for their guests. We look forward to returning.
The Steiner family.

Beautiful Cabin....Labor Day Weekend

  • 5 of 5
We were most fortunate to have spent our end of summer family retreat in this beautiful cabin Labor Day weekend. Our weekend was filled with fishing at Mono Hot Springs and Camp Edison with food, fun, and quality family time.

Our 3 day 2 night stay started when we met Sam at the cabin for the keys. She was gracious enough to do a quick walk through with us and she even suggested hiking trails (which we took advantage of). Every detail of the cabin was nothing less than superb.....loved the décor, spacious living area, loft and game room. We made sure we used the media room for a movie night! There were even simple, easy to follow instructions for the televisions.

We were expecting a great cabin but this cabin definitely exceeded our expectations. After our stay, Sam was so kind to return a forgotten item that we had left at the cabin.

We are most thankful we had the chance to experience Shaver and stay at this cabin. Friends who we have shared our cabin pictures and stay with are already asking for details of who to contact.....we hope they get a chance to enjoy it as much as we did as we hope to return soon.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your wonderful review. I am glad your family had such a great weekend. Shaver is a great place for a family retreat at any time of the year. If you guys are skiers as well as fishermen, don't forget that China Peak is just up the road and the hiking trails work well for snowshoeing and cross country skiing. Thanks again for taking such good care of our cabin. We look forward to seeing you back soon.

Perfect Retreat for Our Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5
Six "thirty-something" single friends from Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Central Florida met up for a weekend getaway and to watch the meteor shower. We had an amazing time. The cabin was the perfect place for us. We enjoyed cooking meals together, playing games (darts, playstation, ping pong, foosball, and board games), and even renting a boat for the day at the nearby lake. Every detail of our trip was fantastic.

The cabin was fully stocked and provided everything we needed to enjoy our stay (down to the tiniest details like olive oil, cooking spices, wonderful knives and cooking gear, an awesome outdoor grill --even beach towels to take with us to the lake).

The owner was even kind enough to ask around about good local spots for viewing the meteor shower. Every detail of the experience was fantastic!

I'm definitely looking forward to planning another trip in the area so I can stay in this cabin again. Thank you so much! :)
