Property description

This beautifully maintained home is very roomy as was designed for large groups. It comfortably accommodates groups up to 20 in a homey atmosphere for a family, church ministry, club or other retreat. With 2 king beds, 5 queen beds, 5 full beds, 7 twin beds and three roll-away, there are so many options for sleeping arrangements that you can arrange your group easily.

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.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Granite Ridge (Shaver Lake, CA, USA):
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
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.
