About the property

Chalet, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 9)

This elegant 2230 square-foot Chalet on a private, forested 1/3 acre has it all - WIFI and a 42 inch flat screen, beautiful views and hiking trails from the backyard! But, it is close to town and less a minute off the main road on a quiet cul-de-sac. See our new photos and map with points of interest - just click on 'Location' to check it out.

Enjoy all seasons in this spacious Ockenden Ranch home in Shaver Lake with tall pines and sequoias you can take in from every window as well as the large balcony and two decks! It is located close to the main road in a well-maintained subdivision with wide roads, full winter access, and tennis and basketball courts yet is tucked back on a private cul-de-sac. There are hiking trails starting right from the front or back yard for mountain biking, snowshoeing, sledding, and cross-country skiing.

It's only 2 minutes to the quaint little town of Shaver Lake, 5 minutes to the lake , and 25 minutes to China Peak Ski/Cycling Resort and Huntington Lake. There are several other lakes and hiking trails in the vicinity. Camp Edison (marina, beach access, swimming area, picnic tables, BBQ's), Dorrabella, and Sierra Marina all provide lake access and/or boat launching and are about 1-2 miles past town.

When you get home from a long day outdoors relax and enjoy all the indoor amenities such as wireless internet, 4 TV's with cable (including a new 42' plasma TV), DVD and VCR players, stereo with built-in speakers, and the loft with it's own TV, XBox, and board games.

The home has custom features throughout including gorgeous two-story vaulted wood celings and hardwood floors in a bright, open floor plan! You'll love cooking and entertaining in the fully-equipped gourmet kitchen with beautiful cherrywood cabinets, granite counters, Jenn-Air gas cooktop and the adjacent balcony with stainless steel BBQ and patio dining.

Pamper yourself after a long day skiing on the lake or the slopes in the jacuzzi tub, curl up with a book by the gas fireplace, or take in the forest view from the floor to ceiling windows.

Please note that off-road vehicles are not permitted in our development by the Ockenden Ranch HOA but there are many roads and trails close by that you can enjoy.

About The Owner

After 15 years of enjoying family vacations in Shaver Lake at other peoples' homes we finally decided to purchase a home of our own. We love the big trees, warm summers boating at the lake, and the plentiful snow. We hope you will find your stay at our home peaceful, fun, and memorable.

The Owner purchased this chalet in 2011

Why The Owner chose Gold Country & High Sierra

The beauty of the forest, lake, and surrounding mountains is breathtaking. There is so much to do nearby and longer excusions for the serious adventurer. The town of Shaver Lake is close to a major city but is unspoiled and still maintains a quaint small community atmosphere.

What makes this chalet unique

We love to cook and entertain friends or pack up a picnic and head to the beach for a day of boating and swimming. We start almost every day by venturing out from our backyard to explore the area. We discovered that most of the various subdivisions are linked by hiking trails and you can sample new terrain every day. Our home is also very cozy and inviting so sometimes we just stay in to enjoy the views, relax, and unwind from our busy lives in the city.

Wonderful Home!

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED this beautiful home! I was thrilled upon our arrival as I walked around and took it all in - just gorgeous ~ and we loved that the neighborhood was so quiet and peaceful. It's a short drive (7 minutes or so) to the lake which was a lot of fun for the family. I am already thinking about a return visit, perhaps in the winter. Thank you Matt for a wonderful vacation spot!

Breathtaking and a blessing

  • 5 of 5

I had great expectations after reading the reviews for this property but even those were blown away upon arrival. It is breathtaking. I kept hearing AMAZING from our 3 and 7 year old as they danced around while discovering every cool feature inside. We all work stressful jobs and a get away is always welcomed, but this cabin went above and beyond our standard get away. All I can say is it is a real blessing and I know you will enjoy it. GOD is good!

My family and I had the best Valentine's weekend staying at this beautiful cabin. It was extremely CLEAN, NEAT, ORGANIZED, SPACIOUS. I think my favorite part were the views. I have stayed at a beach home where the views were the beach, the views in this cabin were INCREDIBLE! I have to say it was better than the beach view. I think the location of this cabin and the position is so perfect. It is located in the cutest neighborhood. and with his big tall windows, those views are remarkable. we took beautiful nature walks. By far the best rental in shaver lake. My family and I have stayed at many cabins but this exceeded out expectations by far. My family included: Mother, Father & youngest sister. Myself, my husband and our 8 month old, and my oldest sister and her husband. There was so much room for all of us. You don't need to bring anything everything is provided, there is also laundry room if you want to bring your own detergent. My son took his first steps in that cabin so it will forever be cherished. THANK YOU!

Spotless cabin

  • 5 of 5

I agree with all other reviews. The home is in great condition and located in a great spot. Short ride to town and nice slopes in back yard for the kids. Living room and kitchen bigger than what seems in pictures. Out of the four homes we have stayed in over the past 14 years vacationing in Shaver this is our top choice. Thanks for sharing your home with us.

Great Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the house Dec 19th-22nd for a Christmas with the family mini vacation. We all absolutely loved the house. Beautiful inside and out. Great area in the back yard that the kids played for hours in the snow, built snowmen and went sledding down the hills. We loved the views outside from every room in the house. We also visited China Peak ski resort one day. Only took about 25 minutes to get there. We had a great day on the slopes. We are already planning our next visit and will defiantly rent this house again. Matt was very helpful and was easy to reach. Thanks again Matt for allowing us to stay in your beautiful house. We will defiantly be back. Looking forward to seeing the area in the summer!

Ideal, quiet getaway in the mountains

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the chalet while we were in town for a friend's wedding, and the accommodations couldn't have been better! The property itself was immaculate, and very comfortable, and there was more than enough room for us and the three friends who stayed with us. We were close enough to town that it only took us about 5-10 minutes to get there, but we were far enough away that we didn't get any of the noise or crowds. We loved reading out on the balcony off of the kitchen and master bedroom in the mornings, and relaxing with popcorn and movies in the evenings. Thank you again, Matt, for letting us stay here!
