In the winter we ski, snowboard, sled, and snow shoe. We currently iive in Redondo Beach, CA.
Jill Baxter purchased this Cabin in 2003
Why Jill Baxter chose Shaver Lake
We looked for two years to find a cabin in Shaver. We wanted to buy a cabin not a house built in the mountains. This cabin has 4 bedrooms but was only 1,500 square feet. However, it felt much bigger, why? This cabin was owned by the McQuaids for thirty years, a ship builder. Mr. McQuaid knew how to use space efficiently and used high quality building materials. It has great pine walls, well built, lots of big windows, 3/4 acre lot , but just needed some clean up. We spent two weeks putting in new flooring, decorating, and clean up. We found great antiques in the garage that now hang on the wall in the reading room. The table in the family room is the original door of the cabin. The stone fireplace is made of quartz. The deck is huge and faces the beautiful trees. We can walk to town, the library, and to restaurants. This cabin is one of kind! We have been renting this cabin for ten years and everyone loves this cabin including us!! So if you rented this cabin from Bill, he retired. The second property management company isn't renting cabins anymore. So we are now renting this by owner. We love that other families enjoy our cabin, too!
What makes this Cabin unique
This year we remodeled the kitchen and bathroom. The kitchen and bathroom customer cabinets were made out of a shaver tree my husband assisted well known logger Jeff Young hoist out of the bottom of Shaver Lake. The beautiful stone floors were installed by well known mason Dan Young. A beautiful stone shower in the bathroom makes you feel like you are outside. It is the only cabin in shaver with sinker wood custom cabinets. The Deck is the same size as main level of the cabin. Beautiful View of Trees from every window in the cabin, Close to town, Not close to other cabins, lots of parking, Pine walls, well built, a cabin not a house built in the mountains, Four bedrooms, reading room, living room, large kitchen, separate mud room.

The Baxter Mountian Cottage served as a perfect base camp for our day trips to Shaver Lake, Huntington Lake, Indian Pools, Dinkey Creek and Wishon Resevoir. It’s right off the main road, and within walking distance to town. The cottage has everything you need and more. We especially loved kitchen and the large rear deck.
We’ll definitely be back!
We loved our stay!
We enjoyed staying at this cabin in the woods. It was used as a starting/finishing point to our many adventures through out the area. Shaver Lake was awesome.
Great location, spacious, we will return!
This cabin was perfect, very spacious and a great location! We hope to come back in the winter time to enjoy all it has to offer in the snow!
I am happy you enjoyed the cabin! We appreciate your visit to the Baxter Mountain Cottage!
Beautiful, comfortable, and very well maintained
We spent the weekend with two other families and there was plenty of room for all of us (including the kids). The cabin was stocked with a variety of DVDs and games. We were lucky enough to arrive during the first big snow storm of the season. I was worried that the single house heater wouldn't keep us warm but it worked AMAZINGLY and kept the entire cabin, including the upstairs bedrooms, very comfortable. The electric fireplace was also a huge plus because we didn't have to worry about hauling in wood during the storm and it provided a great amount of heat. THE ONLY ISSUE was the water. Initially the hot water didn't work. I text the owner and she called me back immediately to resolve the issue. While the water warmed up, the water pressure never improved beyond a trickle so we were unable to take showers during our stay and the toilets didn't always flush. I'm assuming this had more to do with the weather and cold pipes so we'll give this cabin another visit in the future.
Thanks for the review. After your visit my house cleaner mentioned how low the water pressure was in the Cabin. I called our water master and the cold weather had created a broken pipe at the well for our entire track. So luckily you visited and our community didn’t lose anymore water from the well. Problem resolved!
Had a wonderful time!
We had a wonderful time staying at the Baxter's Mountain Cottage. It had plenty of room for all of us and was very conveniently located close to town, which was very handy. We would love to come back sometime!
Shaver Lake is great for boating, paddle boarding, kayaking, and fishing. Huntington Lake is for sailing. Dinkey Creek is a great place to fly fish. China Peak is the ski resort and is 20 minutes from the Cabin. Guests can sled, snow shoe, and cross country ski at the cabin. You can easily walk into town from our cabin and the library is right down the street. The Pot Holes are fun Hike and swimming for the family.
