About the property

2 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom, Sleeps up to 8

All the luxuries of home and more can be found in this tri-level premium home in Ockenden Ranch. Upon entering the cabin on the main floor, which is surrounded by pine trees, you'll notice the vaulted ceiling, beautiful wood flooring and gorgeous granite countertops in the kitchen. The house is tastefully decorated with outdoor themes, and we've done our best to make sure anything you might want while on vacation is already in the house.

The house is over 2,000 sq ft., with two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a half bathroom in the basement. The cabin has WIFI, Dish TV, four flat screen TV's , four DVD players, and surround sound (including speakers for the backyard). The cabin sleeps up to 8 comfortably.

The home has a washer and dryer, as well as a kitchen that is fully equipped and stocked with many extras, such as crock pots, a rice pot and a griddle. All equipment is high quality and any chef will love it. The dining table seats six comfortably, but will extend to seat eight.

Be sure to pack your graham crackers, marshmallows and chocolate bars as there's a fire pit in the backyard with wood and roasting sticks to enjoy on the cool evenings; the house backs up to the forest for privacy.

The patio table on the back deck seats six, and there are eight chairs located around the fire pit. In the summer, string lights festively light up the backyard. A briquette Weber grill and propane heater are on the back deck.

When it snows, there are two snow hills directly behind the house (there are sleds and saucer discs for use upon request). In the summer, there's a hiking trail and biking options. But no matter the season, don't be surprised if you wake up to see a small family of deer out the kitchen and back patio windows.

The town of Shaver Lake is a two minute drive and the lake is about six minutes away. China Peak is about 25 minutes away.

About Carolyn Imoto

Owners met at Fresno State and have been married for 41 years. We are big Bulldog fans.

We have a son, daughter, and two grandsons. We have resided in Visalia since 1979 and find the drive to Shaver Lake relaxing, and we love to fish. Our favorite time is when it snows and we can sled the two snow hills out back.

Mrs I. spent the summers at a young age camping at Dinkey Creek, fishing, riding our Honda 90s, and swimming in Honeymoon Pool.

We hope you enjoy your stay at our cabin and find all the fun activities Shaver Lake has ready for you this summer or winter.

Carolyn Imoto purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Carolyn Imoto chose Shaver Lake

Upon selling our condo, we found this amazing, high tech cabin, and it was everything we wanted. Lee's Stereo of Visalia put in the system for 4 televisions, DVDs, and surround sound. Having speakers on the back patio helps create a fun and relaxing atmosphere. All the furniture is from Salmon's of Hanford and is beautiful, high quality, and so comfortable.

What makes this cabin unique

Imoto Inn has a whole house water filter for clean drinking water.

Cabin is perfect for families; equipped with safety gates, pak'n plays and high chair. Lots of toddler toys too.

The fire pit - who doesn't enjoy roasting hotdogs and marshmallows?

The parking pad (for two cars) is very useful and is cleaned by snow plows in the winter.

There are many places to hang out in the house (loft, main living room, back patio and fire pit, and basement); it's a lot bigger than it looks.

Home away from Home!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a blast!, took my daughters and their families, 8 total. The accommodations where perfect! Close drive to the lake, quiet community yet the forest in back makes you feel like your all alone in the wilderness. The kitchen was GREAT!!!! Fully stocked, my daughters n I, enjoyed cooking the family meals without skiping a beat, they have every gadget (upper end) one needs, so very nice. The beds where so comfy! The men got to watch a Football game during our stay and the surround sound to the outdoors, was a nice surprise and very much appreciated while they did not miss a thing as they bbq'd. The instructions to the use of items, tv, garbage, lock boxes where very clear and detailed. Highly recommend, great for families with older children.

Beautiful, comfortable, felt like home

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect fit for our needs while taking part in hosting one of the largest Open Water Polo tournaments in the nation. Though our time to enjoy the cabin was limited... each night when we returned home it was the perfect place to unwind and to be able to shower and do laundry for all of us with plenty of hot water. It is obvious that the Imoto family takes great pride in their cabin.

Excellent Choice!

  • 5 of 5

I have rented many different properties both privately and through VRBO and I found this beautiful rental to be one of the best vacation homes I have ever stayed in. The property is very well maintained, the amenities are actually better than advertised and the communication with the owner, Carolyn, is outstanding! We had a total of 8 people and the home was very accommodating for our group, including very comfortable sleeping arrangements for everyone. I hope to be able to rent here every time I come and can easily recommend this as an outstanding rental property. Location, comfort, amenities, the layout of the home itself with the three different levels and superb communication/cooperation with the owner make it extremely easy for me to recommend this place! Definitely an excellent choice for us!
