About Michelle McGee
I left my job as a wildlife biologist in 2014 to have my son Granite. As soon as he was born, I was hooked! Managing/maintaining our 1 bdrm vacation rental allowed me to stay home with our son. In 2016 we moved from our 3 bdrm condo (www.vrbo.com/872600) and turned that one into a second vacation property. We live in Shaver Lake with our son and our adopted cattle dog that is beyond OCD about fetch.
Michelle McGee purchased this Condo in 2003
Why Michelle McGee chose Shaver Lake
Eric McGee bought this condo in 2003 because it is close to all of the things he loves. Mountains, climbing, mountain biking, skiing, caving, and a wood stove which Eric refers to as the cowboy tv.
What makes this Condo unique
We have spent countless hours on the back deck watching the wildlife pass by. At night you can listen and maybe catch a glimpse of flying squirrels! It is only a two minute walk from the front door to the pool/hot tub. So taking a quick soak after dinner is practically mandatory. Flexible check in/out times. Normal check in time is 4pm, and check out is 11am. If I don't have another group checking in/out on your group's arrival/departure days, then those times can be more flexible. When I have another group checking out on your arrival day; I do my best to clean the place quickly so you can check in as soon as possible.

It was great! What I loved about this condo is no matter who visited me during my week stay, there was something for everyone, the teenagers were at the pool and hot tub, the senior in the sauna and great short hikes. For us middle aged young ones, the hiking in this area was beautiful and easily done thanks to managements maps of hiking surrounding areas. Its a small condo that was very comfortable for 5-6 people! Loved it, would highly recommend....
Perfect location! Clean cute condo!
This condo was perfect. We arrived late and the heater was on so it was warm and toasty upon arrival. There’s a King bed upstairs with a half wall and a twin next to it. This was perfect for our 9 y/o. Then downstairs was a sofa sleeper our other son slept on. It was clean and met our needs perfectly. There is a stream you could hear from the porch. It has a smart tv so we were able to log onto Netflix and watch movies. There was a Season pass for the sno parks there which was convenient since that’s why we were visiting. Overall a great condo. We will stay here again. Thanks for a great experience!
Awesome condo! We enjoyed it very much. That being said, I do have a couple of suggestions....it would have been nice to know in advance that the TV doesn't get any type of cable/dish channels. We did try the Netflix option on the Smart TV, however, it couldn't connect to Netflix. I couldn't even get it to the point that I could enter my login information. We would definitely stay here again in the future; I would just make sure I bring some DVDs from home.
Sorry you experienced difficulty with the smart tv. I wish I would've known you were having trouble connecting, so I could've helped walk you through it. Please let me now next time if you need help with anything.
Very clean. Fully stocked. Great location. Owner is very responsive.
Loved our stay here (2 adults and 2 kids, ages 4 and 8)! There is a notebook full of great information about the area we found very helpful. The kitchen is fully stocked. Linens were provided and even towels for the hot tub. Great location. Close to everything. Condo is very comfortable. Owner is very responsive and made the whole process very easy. There is a nice sized patio on the back with a grill. Will definitely be back!
Wonderful condo in a great wooded location
If you are looking like we were to have a combination trip of exploring some of our beautiful national parks, chilling on the back porch bird watching and catching local hikes and sights this is a perfect place. The house is comfortable and cozy we cooked all our meals in the well appointed but definitely smaller kitchen. Michelle was super friendly and easy to work with immediately correcting the one missing item and the condo was very clean and well kept up. She also left a supply of wood which we used. I'd highly recommend this condo.
There are spices, coffee, tea and sugar inn the place is recommend doing a grocery run at mar-vals in Prather and stocking up. Ken's has basic items in town if you've forgotten anything.
Perfect condo, communication, & in a stunning area
I am very picky about what I want in a vacation space: aesthetics are important, clean is non-negotiable, the location needs also be where we can have access to whatever national parks or hikes or escapes we are looking for....AND the owner(s) must be friendly and easy to communicate with. Michelle’s place is clean, comfy, cozy, has everything we needed plus, is decorated beautifully to fit the Sierras, and she was so helpful. We used the condo as our basecamp for visits to Sequoia National Park and took local hikes to Rancheria Waterfall, the McKinley Grove, and more. Michelle not only made suggestions for us about THIS part of our 36th anniversary trip, but about where to visit when we traveled on toward San Francisco...can’t wait to see Point Reyes. Thanks for sharing your condo with us, Michelle. We didn’t want to leave the High Sierras! -Regina & Steve
