Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: 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 ( 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.

Why the Owner Chose Shaver Lake, CA, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
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.
