About the owner: We built our cabin because we love Shaver Lake and wanted a place that our family could enjoy for generations to come. We aimed at creating a cabin that was comfortable, reflected the beauty of the area, and would in short make you feel at home. We have outfitted the cabin not as a rental but rather as how we would want it for ourselves. In doing so we hope to exceed your expectations and deliver a great value and many happy memories for your family. Mike & Janet
