          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.

           

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2003

          About the owner: 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).

          Why the Owner 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!

          The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
          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.
