Year Purchased: 2011
About: After 15 years of enjoying family vacations in Shaver Lake at other peoples' homes we finally decided to purchase a home of our own. We love the big trees, warm summers boating at the lake, and the plentiful snow (Jan is Canadian). We hope you will find your stay at our home peaceful, fun, and memorable.
Why Shaver Lake: The beauty of the forest, lake, and surrounding mountains is breathtaking. There is so much to do nearby and longer excusions for the serious adventurer. The town of Shaver Lake is close to a major city but is unspoiled and still maintains a quaint small community atmosphere.
The Unique Benefits at this Chalet: We love to cook and entertain friends or pack up a picnic and head to the beach for a day of boating and swimming. We start almost every day by venturing out from our backyard to explore the area. We discovered that most of the various subdivisions are linked by hiking trails and you can sample new terrain every day. Our home is also very cozy and inviting so sometimes we just stay in to enjoy the views, relax, and unwind from our busy lives in the city.
