Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a fabulous time at Shaver Lake. The cabin was exceptionally clean and well-stocked. Nick, the owner, was very thoughtful with regard to the amenities and checked if we needed anything, etc. It was so appreciated.

Great Winter Getaway

  • 4 of 5

This property was so wonderful! My family and I spent a weekend here and had such a nice time. The cabin was clean, organized, and the directions for accessing and using the cabin were very clear and concise. The only thing that I can even remotely complain about would be that the fireplace/heater simply couldn't keep up with how cold it was. Every morning the downstairs was 60 degrees regardless of the fire being on all night. But thankfully we had blankets to assist in keeping us cozy and once the day progressed it did warm up slightly. All in all this little place was great! We loved being able to play in the snow right behind the property and enjoyed the sounds of the creek running. We would definitely consider using this cabin again and recommend this property to friends!

Had a great time!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the Cozy Creekside Retreat. The location was very quiet the weekend we were there. Tons of snow and lots of space to play behind the cabin. Beautiful scenery. Having the creek right there was a little unnerving at first for sledding, so use caution with little ones. There was convenient parking at the top of the small hill leading down to the cabin, but the path was snow-covered and somewhat slippery. This wasn't unexpected though as Nick's directions prior to arrival were very thorough - just a heads-up for anyone who needs a shoveled sidewalk to get from point A to point B. The beds were very comfortable and the cabin was plenty warm with the space heater and non-wood-burning fireplace. Note that there is not a solid wall between the two bedrooms upstairs - one is open to the stairs and the other is open at the top of the wall - just a note if you need total quiet between the rooms. It worked just fine for our family of four. LOVED having a wall heater in the bathroom. We had everything we needed in the kitchen. The foosball table is actually a miniature game table with ping-pong, pool and air hockey too - super fun for the kiddos. Plenty of board games to choose from. Communication with the owner before the trip was very easy and helpful. No issues with return of security deposit. Cabin was clean when we arrived. We would stay here again!

My family loved the cabin! Perfect location in Shaver. The cabin is clean and cozy, the beds were comfortable and the kids loved sledding down the walk-way. We had a great time and would definitely stay again.

Relaxing environment

  • 4 of 5

Great location, the only reason I gave this a four star and not a five was because we were only provided with one towel per person and no washcloths. Our stay was for 5 days so I would have expected more linen, same goes with blankets. I did however receive a partial linen fee. Overall had a great vacation.

Owner's Response: We are glad you had a great vacation. We take great pride in having a clean, comfortable, and affordable family cabin. We do NOT charge a linen fee, unlike many other cabins in Shaver. We do provide a "basic set of linens" as indicated in the welcome letter. This is based on the number of people that are in the reservation. As far as blankets, each bed has an electric blanket available in the closets. With low temperatures in the 60's in July. They are rarely used in the summer. There is also a heater and a gas fireplace controlled by a thermostat. Thanks
