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.

Beautiful home.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this Ockenden Ranch home for 4 nights in July. It was clean, well-stocked, well air-conditioned and comfortable for our family of 5, plus friends (family of 3) who visited for dinner. The furnishings were modern and well kept. We were so thankful for such a wonderful place to relax after a long day at the lake.

weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the cabin. The house was very clean when we arrived and everything was well maintained. Matt is a very responsive owner and was willing to answer our questions. There was plenty of space in the house for the 6 of us and we were super close to the lake! We would definitely stay again!

Awesome cabin in the snow and forest!

  • 5 of 5

What a great cabin for our family to get away for Easter break! Close to everything, lake, snow, hiking, town! But far enough away that you feel like your still in the forest! And not to mention, the cabin is so big and nice!

Good location and facilities

  • 5 of 5

It was a short distance from the highway and quaint "downtown" area. The house had a nice open feel and good sleeping accommodations.

very clean, nice layout

  • 4 of 5

This house was very clean, perfect for 4 adults and 4 kids. There was one nice tv in the living room but the other tvs were very outdated, there were a lot of fixtures (towel rack and master bath faucet) and knobs on cabinets that were almost falling off. Just seems like it needs a little maintenance after being a rental? There was a bookcase in the loft that was almost falling apart, dangerous for little kids. Overall we liked it but it just needs a few things worked on and updated. Owner responded very promptly and was very easy to work with. I would definitely recommend the house. Layout was perfect for family gathering. Big backyard for sledding. They had all of the kitchen/bathroom accessories that we needed. We just brought a baby gate for the stairs. We would stay here again!
