Owner info

Year Purchased: 1995

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

Why the Owner Chose Shaver Lake, CA, USA:
Its a beautiful area, quiet yet close to the area's many attractions. The cabin is comfortable, peaceful, and beautiful. Located on a cul-de-sac the cabin site is a safe location for children and is adjacent to open forest land. We hope you will enjoy this cabin and the wonderful community of Shaver Lake, and depart with many fond memories and the desire to return again. Mike and Janet

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
As you ascend the highway to Shaver Lake you will first notice the beauty of the Sierra Nevada topography. Roll down the windows of your car and enjoy the cool air and pine smell of the forest and know you are on your way to a great time!
