This beautifully maintained home is very roomy, designed for large groups. With 2 Calif King beds, 6 Queen beds, 4 full beds, and 7 twin beds (as well as 4 twin air beds) you can easily fit your extended family or group in our homey atmosphere, perfect for a families, church ministry, club or other retreat. There are so many options for sleeping arrangements that you can arrange your group easily.
What makes our cabin different than others in Shaver Lake? We are in a very quiet area, so you are not right on top of other groups. We are handicap accessible on the ground floor, including a wheelchair ramp and roll-in shower. We have a spacious house that was designed for larger groups so you have plenty of seating for hanging out in large or small groups (getting away from each other or being all together), we are kid and pet friendly, we have a walking trail across the bottom of our acre plus yard, plenty of parking space, really nice kitchen utensils and place settings, we make up the beds for you before you come, we have a pool table and a gas BBQ, and--well, so many other nice features!
Nestled deep in the majestic western Sierras (but easily accessible by road) our 4,000 square foot retreat with its spacious kitchen, 4.5 baths, 8-12 person bunkroom (bottom bunks are full-size beds), 3 big master bedrooms (one with extra futon bed/couch and mini-fridge), living room, den and well equipped meeting room (or extra large bedroom), man-cave with full size pool table and surround sound hi-res TV, this retreat has an atmosphere of quiet and comfort.
Fall, spring and summer guests enjoy spring skiing, hundreds of miles of hiking and bike trails (one even passes through our backyard), popular 4 wheel drive roads, rock climbing, backpacking, guided horse tours, world class freshwater fishing (lake and stream, stocked and native), natural hot springs, kayaking, canoeing, swimming, wake boarding, water skiing, boating (rentals available) and nature viewing.
Winter Guests enjoy spectacular downhill and cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, snowboarding, snowmobiling, and sledding.
The "Queen's" bedroom is easily converted to a meeting room with worktables and chairs to seat up to 24 people. It has a sink and lots of electrical outlets for any activity; it is used for computer retreats, sewing workshops, business retreats and craft workshops. Upstairs and garage are handicap accessible, with a bathroom & shower for wheelchair access. The Man Cave offers a place to just hang out and make noise without bothering anyone else.
The constant on-demand water heater never runs out of hot water so even with a houseful of guests you have plenty! Fully equipped kitchen with granite countertops, all cooking gear, and a table seating 12 at a time.
This cabin does NOT have air conditioning, but Shaver Lake is rarely uncomfortably hot. Opening windows at night, then closing them in the morning can keep the house cooler.
Things you will love about this cabin: the beds are made up for you so you don't have to put sheets on when you arrive! The layout provides lots of seating arrangements and places for smaller groups to gather, so you can accommodate a large group and still have privacy for breakout groups, making it perfect for large families. There is a hiking trail off the back of the property, so you can hike most seasons (or snow shoe during the winter months) without driving anywhere. This is a very quiet neighborhood so you can really enjoy nature without seeing a lot of people; deer, coyote, raccoons and other creatures amble across the property all day and night. The roads and the driveway are cleared by a snow plow, so you won't be stuck in a large storm. There is a large deck to hang out on and enjoy the woods.
Instant Booking is available for your convenience; please note that we reserve the right to cancel your booking if we find out your group does not meet our requirements.

I love the Sierras! Hiking, swimming, fishing, skiing, horseback riding--all this and more! My favorite place in the world is Shaver Lake. I love to draw and paint, breathe the fresh piney air, and spend as much time as I can in Shaver Lake.
Owner purchased this Cabin in 2004
Why Owner chose Shaver Lake
After visiting the Shaver Lake area nearly every summer since 1969, my husband and I purchased a bare lot and built our house. I designed it and drew the blueprints and my brother did most of the construction (though I built the deck with the help of my sister and several women friends.) All the photos and artwork in the house are mine. I do the "decorating" and maintain the house, while my husband Dave maintains the yard and helps with the Spring and Winter cleans. I designed the house to be comfortable for large groups of people, with plenty of meeting and sitting areas, lots of sleeping options, and nice views from the various rooms.
What makes this Cabin unique
You'll love the master bedrooms (get away from it all) and the Man Cave (have a party!) You will find the hiking trail that crosses near the bottom of the property a lot of fun--you can hike or snow shoe for many miles without crossing a road. It's so quiet and peaceful in the mountains you will have a chance to really unwind and relax. Unlike most other rentals in Shaver Lake, we provide made up beds for you so you don't have to do this yourself.

We had a fantastic time at our retreat and this property is amazing. Incredible communication, beautiful home and every amenity needed on site.
Thanks for a great stay!
Wonderful property; Great Hosts
This was a trip with 4 families with kids. The Natal property is a great place to unwind. We enjoyed it in mid April, barely any snow but the kids had a nice time with whatever was left along the trail and had fun near the small snow melting streams nearby. The property has enough parking space for 6-7 cars. Nice deck behind the house with hammocks. Inside was spacious but cozy, well planned, well kept and most of all clean. Two bedrooms at the entry floor and three below, including the bunk beds which the little ones enjoyed the most. Kitchen was well stocked with necessary utensils. Bathrooms were clean; had to wait a bit for hot water to get to the bath rooms - it was couple of cold evenings and we were a large group. All rooms have TVs and the man cave has a nice pool table with vintage Atari, which the iPad generation kids found interesting :-) The wifi was very spotty...possibly due to DSL or router. Will be nice to have some board games stocked if the visitors ensured to take good care of it. The neighborhood is quiet and there is a walking trail behind the house, which we enjoyed. We ventured out to the lake, walked the beach and climbed the rocks. We cooked in-house mostly but visited the Shaver Pub & Grill for lunch - it was nice. Most of all the owners are great to deal with. I personally got a lot of help from Dottie. She was very kind and flexible to include a change in our reservation. The property usage instructions are very clear and she was very helpful with local suggestions. We will definitely go back and stay here if we visited Shaver Lake again.
We love staying at the cabin! This is our third time here, and we will be back again! Shaver Lake is such a beautiful area. And this cabin is perfect for us, our adult kids and our grandchildren to get together. The house is on a great hiking trail, so you don't have to drive anywhere to enjoy nature, just go out the back door. The kids like it this time of year, there are patches of snow to play in, but it is warm so you can stay outside for hours. Everything is so comfortable in this house, there are lots of spaces to hang out in. The Internet is fast, which helps if you need to catch up on work or want to binge on Netflix! My granddaughter wants to know if we can all just live here together forever.
Lots of room to spread out, this cabin was perfect for our large extended family. It was very clean and neat. There are plenty of beds. The kitchen had everything we needed, including very nice dishes and silverware. Check in was easy. Wi-Fi worked well and was very fast. It is so quiet in the neighborhood. We saw deer right out the windows, as well as lots of other wildlife. A wonderland!
Thanks for your review! Glad you enjoyed the stay, and we really appreciate you leaving the house neat and clean!
I loved it!
The place was great, and so spacious perfect for a family get away. Wish I could have stayed there longer.
It's a very nice property! Roomy and cozy!
We liked everything! The only thing that was bothersome was the squeaky bunk bed. Girls had a hard time falling asleep with the constant noise. Other than that, it was wonderful!!!!
45 Min from Fresno, 5 hrs from LA, 4 hrs from Central Coast. And it's an easy 45 minute drive from Fresno. The town of Shaver Lake, with great restaurants, gift shops, and laid-back friendly proprietors is just 5 minutes up the road.
