Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: I'm a retired college prof and my wife has couple more years to go. We have 4 kids. Our younger son helps manage this rental. Our family loves being in the mountains with tress and alpine lakes - and experiencing it with family. Shaver is the best. This sparsely elegant vacation home with hewn cedar log siding, and wide-cut hardwood floors allows guests to totally relax in an expansive mountain home where you instantly relax.. At 5,000 feet, you will enjoy be nestled among giant cedar trees, watching snowfall or basking on the expansive deck. Interestingly, the separate 2 upstairs wings allow you get-away time to read or sleep!. Shaver Lake is a pristine alpine waterway that's not a jet boat haven. But totally fun for tubing, swimming, paddling, or fishing. China Peak is 30 minutes away, with 2,000 feet of vertical rise for skiing. Town is 1/2 mile walk, and fun to snow shoe. Good Deli Sandwiches, beer, and espresso shops. You will be shocked by the quality of our large HDTV screen w Satellite service. Our home and the community give you special benefits of a group vacation at Mammoth or Tahoe, at a fraction of the cost for family lodging, summertime water amenities, or wintertime snow sports. Sledding is great right on the back side of our property! Shaver is a warm, laid-back community, not unlike our childhood towns. But the incredibly diverse high elevation terrain at Shaver allows you and your kids to experience snow skiing only minutes away, or trek get into fresh snow with cross country skis, snow shoes, or vehicles. You can also freely water ski,, tack hard in a dinghy sailboat, paddle a kayak in a secluded waterway, spot deer on a hiking trail, sip wine on an electric party boat, or push back from a scrumptious dinner at a a community restaurant. You too will love Shaver Lake. Welcome from our family to yours.

Why the Owner Chose Shaver Lake, CA, USA:
2 entrances [one with 16' wheel chair ramp] and the other with heat mats for easy stair climb during winter snow. Diversity, and Affordability. Within a few hours of San Francisco or Los Angeles, your family and friends can enjoy affordable all-season recreational amenities in a pristine alpine setting, Shaver Lake. Maybe the best kept mountain secret in California. This luxurious mountain lodge is spacious, rustic, fully-equipped, Wi-Fi connected, and perfect for one family or two. We wanted to be able to bring our kid's friends with us on a vacation adventure and have found Shaver to be the perfect spot - fun, safe, adventurous, and relaxing.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
What makes Shaver Lake and this cabin unique is that it has all the important amenities of Tahoe or Mammoth, but priced affordably for thrifty family budgets. At this spacious vacation home you can completely relax in fine comfort when indoors and experience high adventure outdoors: sledding on this property, or nearby hiking, biking, snow skiing, water skiing, sailing, sculling, fishing, ATV. If you have a maximum of 8 guests in your party, the rental prices are discounted 20% and one of the upstairs wings will be closed. You will still enjoy all of our amenities.
