About Jill Baxter

My husband is college football coach at USC and founder and creator of Academic Gameplan. I am Sports Law attorney/and CEO of our company Academic Gameplan, which teaches students how to learn. We have two teenage girls, two horses, and our dog. The cabin is our place to relax. We bring our horses in the summer, hike, boat, and spend time with all the cabin owners we know in Shaver. In the winter we ski, snowboard, sled, and snow shoe. We currently iive in Rolling Hills Estates, CA (Palos Verdes Peninsula).

Jill Baxter purchased this cabin in 2003

Why Jill Baxter chose Shaver Lake

We looked for two years to find a cabin in Shaver. We wanted to buy a cabin not a house built in the mountains. This cabin has 4 bedrooms but was only 1,500 square feet. However, it felt much bigger, why?

This cabin was owned by the McQuaids for thirty years, a ship builder. Mr. McQuaid knew how to use space efficiently and used high quality building materials. It has great pine walls, well built, lots of big windows, 3/4 acre lot , but just needed some clean up. We spent two weeks putting in new flooring, decorating, and clean up. We found great antiques in the garage that now hang on the wall in the reading room. The table in the family room is the original door of the cabin. The stone fireplace is made of quartz. The deck is huge and faces the beautiful trees. We can walk to town, the library, and to restaurants. This cabin is one of kind! We have been renting this cabin for ten years and everyone loves this cabin including us!! So if you rented this cabin from Bill, he retired. The second property management company isn't renting cabins anymore. So we are now renting this by owner. We love that other families enjoy our cabin, too!

What makes this cabin unique

Deck the same size as main level of the cabin. Beautiful View of Trees from every window in the cabin, Close to town, Not close to other cabins, lots of parking, Pine walls, well built, a cabin not a house built in the mountains, Four bedrooms, reading room, living room, large kitchen, separate mud room.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had an awesome time at shaver. You cabin is fantastic. Very homey and comfortable. It snowed Saturday night so kids woke up to frosted trees. They had a blast sledding down the hills behind the cabin. Again thank you for working with our schedule. We want to come back again next year!

Beautiful and Relaxing

We spent Christmas week in the cottage and created many memories with our family there. Everything you need is there and although it is close to town you have the feeling of being all alone in secluded paradise! Owners are great to work with which is an added bonus!!!

Cute and cozy but major plumbing issues

  • 2 of 5
We brought the family together from all over the state for Christmas. The sewage was Backing up into the shower so badly we couldn't take showers and had to drive to town to go to the bathroom. Water from the upper floor was flooding into the living room. We went with clogged up plumbing for 48 hours. It is very cute and cozy but there are major plumbing issues with the place but very expensive for sewage in the shower

Owner's Response: The Tenants were great guests. The plumbing problem was due to the county hookup to the sewer in our neighborhood. Nothing to do with the cabin or property. It was fixed the next day and the tenants were reimbursed for the day of the inconvenience. It was unfortunate the Tenants were the guests on Christmas Day who had to endure this mess.

Charming

  • 4 of 5
The cabin was comfortable and charming. It is close to hiking, swimming and the local stores. The only complaint, not enough lighting. When the sun goes down the lighting in the cabin is very dim. There was not enough light in the main restroom to even comb your hair, and dim lighting in the other rooms made it difficult to read.

Owner's Response: We have some extra lighting in the reading room closet. We are working on a new light fixture for the bathroom. Thanks for your comment. We appreciate your feedback.

Quiet and cozy as advertised!

  • 5 of 5
We went up for the weekend to get away from our busy weekday schedules. It was a wonderful stay. We looked for a rental that was cozy and private, and the description of your cabin caught my eye. Looking forward to going back during the holiday season with all of our family. We can't wait. The accommodations were cozy, and everything was clean. We appreciated that the cabin was fairly close to town, but it still felt that we were away from the hustle and bustle. Thank you for the large assortment of games; we are looking forward to using them when we go back with our kids in December. I can't say enough...everything was perfect! THANK YOU!!

Shaver Lake is great for boating, paddle boarding, kayaking, and fishing. Huntington Lake is for sailing. Dinkey Creek is a great place to fly fish. China Peak is the ski resort and is 20 minutes from the Cabin. Guests can sled, snow shoe, and cross country ski at the cabin. You can easily walk into town from our cabin and the library is right down the street. The Pot Holes are fun Hike and swimming for the family.
