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.

Thanksgiving getaway

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky to find this available for a Thanksgiving retreat. The cabin is tucked away in a small cluster of older cabins. The little enclave has a historic feel to it. The cabin itself was perfect for our family of four. The bedrooms are upstairs and adjacent. The downstairs has a large living room area, dining area, and a good kitchen area if you are doing any meals. It was a great base for exploring the Shaver Lake area and beyond. We found lots of great hiking nearby for an unseasonably warm holiday. Especially some trails near Rancheria Falls, McKinley Grove, and Wishon Reservoir. Stopped at Cressman's on the way up for a recommended Bumbleberry Pie. That did NOT disappoint. And we had sandwiches from the Shaver Lake Coffee and Deli, which were pretty good. Ken's Market was pretty good for off-season with a good range of gear and groceries.

Cleanest vacation home I have ever stayed

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful cabin! Adorable inside, good kitchen, lots of space in living room for my children to play. It is the cleanest vacation home we have ever stayed in, I was very impressed. It's very well kept! Our family cabin (old and small for our whole family) is right next door but my husband, kids and I will likely rent this place again in the future.

Excellent value minus the 100 dollar cleaning fee

  • 4 of 5

great spot but a little tricky to find. Would have been nice if cable was working. 100 dollar cleaning fee is way to much, given we cleaned up after outselves pretty well.

Nice cabin tucked away in the trees yet close to town

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay in this sweet cabin that afforded us the things we enjoy. Especially liked having Indian Rock where the sunsets were incredible and the lights of the valley were breathtaking.. We definitely will plan another stay in the future.
