This cabin was great size for my family vacation. All the bedrooms were good size and all the beds were more than plenty for what we needed. The location is great and walking distance to town. The only thing that happened during our trip was the TV's didn't have cable or wireless set up or it just wasn't running. That was very disappointing. We like renting a cabin to be able to watch the news at least in the evening. The the last 3 days we were there the WiFi went down. Neither had any instructions on how to fix it and there was NO ONE to contact. Locally or on the phone. Maybe when there isn't a pandemic there will be better customer service. But other than that. It was very nice and easy to get to.
Manager response:
We apologize the WiFi was difficult during your stay; the property manager has addressed this. Thank you for staying with Vacasa!

This is a great cabin for several families. Big washer and dryer that works great! We love all the improvements since our first visit. Very comfortable and we love that we can bring our dog!

The place was roomy and worked for three families to spend time together. However, the A/C does not work well. At night it went from being too hot to too cold. Especially in the upstairs rooms. During the day the A/C couldn’t keep up with the house. The kitchen is very well stocked and there was a tv in every room, but the place was dusty. The management company was not responsive at all. We tried to communicate with them through the VRBO app and they never responded. The area is great but I don’t like to stay in a place where the management company cannot be reached.
Manager response:
Thank you for staying in one of our homes! We are glad you enjoyed your stay. We are sorry you encountered issues with the air conditioning in the home and we apologize that our team was not able to resolve your concern in a timely manner. Local staff has been aware of this issues and has rectified it so future guests do not encounter this. We are glad you had an otherwise enjoyable stay and we hope you choose to book with us again!

Great location. Good house for multiple families. Clean. Thanks!
Megan T. Feb 2020
This was a great house for me and my extended family! I appreciated how well-heated the rooms were and all the extra space-heaters and fans.
Karina H. Feb 2020
Nice, clean home. Great location, close to stores and restaurants. My family and I enjoyed our weekend there.
Randy D. Jan 2020
The location is fantastic... walking distance to everything in the village. There's enough parking for four cars. The kitchen is fully stocked with all appliances, dishes, and lots of pantry space. The bedrooms were a good size and the main bathroom was nicely renovated. Even with only one shower, our large group got by just fine. Having a washer and dryer was very convenient. There were a few minor issues but nothing major. The property management was great and had wood delivered quickly. Overall it's a great choice!

The house was clean and well stocked even over what they listed👍 I couldn’t have asked for more😊
Debra S. Oct 2019
Great Location, nice large house for several adults and two kiddos.
Natalia N. Sep 2019
We went up here for a birthday celebration and it was a cute little home with more space than we had anticipated. Plan on booking this house again on the near future
Jennifer S. Sep 2019
The home was furnished nicely and was on a quiet street, I especially loved the fenced yard for my dogs!
David B. Aug 2019
Loved everything about this place! Had everything we needed. Great side yard for our 4-legged family member! Especially loved that we were able to walk to town. We’d love to come back!
Jeanne B. Jun 2019
Love the location of the cabin close to everything.
Taryn P. May 2019

Chris B. Mar 2019
The size and location to downtown was perfect. Plus there is a sweet sled run right behind the cabin.
Tim R. Jan 2019
This was our fourth time at the cozy Captain’s Cove. It never disappoints - it’s spacious, comfortable, clean and so close to town. We can hardly wait for next year so we can return and make more amazing family memories!
Monica M. Jan 2019
Our stay at Captain’s Cove was lovely. It was very clean and well stocked with towels, utensils, and wood! It easily slept all 12 of us but was a bit of a tight fit in the living room however it was nice to cozy up by the fire. Would return and recommend.
Denise R. Dec 2018
Very roomy and comfortable. Everything you need is already there. Bring your hygeine products, clothes and food- enjoy
John J. Dec 2018

George L. Nov 2018
Had a great time at Captain's Cove with the family over the Thanksgiving weekend. I love the improvements made to the outside patio. 8 adults fit comfortably and all had a great time. Weather was chilly but we had plenty of firewood to keep the house warm and cozy during the day. At night we only had to keep the heater at 68 degrees otherwise it would get too warm! The only problem we had was the TV in the living room had no access to cable so we had to watch football in the bedroom.
We hope to be back next year!

Nadine A. Jul 2018

Location is great

My siblings and I went for mothers day weekend to captain's cove since my mom had been wanting to rent a cabin and it was fantastic! The house was very clean and the kitchen had everything we needed. It was relaxing and so refreshing. We had a few problems with the wifi and Netflix but i would definitely go again!
Jeremy C. Apr 2018
We came up to Shaver Lake for a quick Spring Break getaway, and this cabin was perfect! The location is amazing, right in-town and surrounded by gorgeous trees. Our kids (3 and 5) especially loved playing the front yard area for their snack time, and learning to play checkers at the game table. The cabin set up was fantastic, and even included wood for the fireplace. The whole place was cozy and awesome and we definitely want to visit again! Our kids keep asking when we will return to the "cabin home."
Tammy M. Mar 2018
We loved everything about this cabin. We had a group of nine, had a ton of snow and didn’t have to leave and drive to have a day in the snow. The house is very clean, has everything you need and then some. We will definitely be returning.
Norma P. Mar 2018
It was our first time ever renting a cabin! We celebrated our sons first birthday. I loved the cabin and the location, it was close to everything. We loved that there was plenty of snow for the kids to play in. We will definitely be back.
Valentin R. Dec 2017
We had a great time at this cabin. Clean and spacious. The WiFi and smart TVs were a plus for our family. Extra blankets and pillows were nice to have. Staff was helpful and made our stay worry-free.
Whitty . Apr 2017
The location is convenient (walking distance) to the restaurants in the village. The mini-park next to the property would be fun for kids when the weather is warmer or when there is snow. Kitchen well stocked with utensils. Beds ok. Wifi worked.
Tiffany . Apr 2017
The cabin was amazing so cozy and spacious! We just happened to come a day before a beautiful snow fall and we took some beautiful photos and footage around the area. Documented memories and a vacation we will never forget. Overall the property met expectations. A few minor things that needed to be taken care of such as a slow drain in one of the showers. All was well and taken care of within a few hours after a phone call was made. We were out skiing and came back to a fully functioning shower. Microwave was on its last leg definitely needs to be replaced. A few supplies ran out such as trash bags and dish soap for the price we paid we expected those items to be well stocked. However everything else was perfect. Sat by the fire watching the snowflakes blanket the yard. We would have love a jacuzzi but do plan on making another trip to this area.
Laura . Mar 2017
We love coming to Shaver and staying in the rentals. This one was great!
Rose . Jan 2017
Captains cove was very cozy and cute. We are very grateful owners are pet friendly. My only complaint would be the beds. Both beds down stairs are Extremely uncomfortable, very hard like sleeping on a table. My suggestion would be if owners can not get new mattresses, then they should invest in gel foam mattress pads. Other then our sleep time we had a blast!! Thank you
Julie . Jan 2017
I'd first like to say the things we liked about captains cove. It is so cozy overall! The location is amazing. The grounds surrounding the cabin are amazing. The TV's in each room is a big plus!! The upstairs was laid out perfectly for our kiddos! The laundry room, washer/dryer, and all the hooks are excellent! There are a few suggestions however I'd like to make...First of all, taking out the Armour in the living room and placing a TV on the wall would make a huge difference in that room. Then, a person can see the TV from all the seats in the room! I would also suggest putting a gas line in for the fire place. The wood seemed (naturally) a little damp and it was very difficult to keep the fire going. Finally- I would suggest using fitted sheets to cover the mattress. I'm not sure how that works and may not even be available using a linen service but it would be much nicer for guests. Thank you for the quick response on getting the pipe underneath the kitchen sink fixed! We will definitely use Shaver Lake vac rentals again!! Thank you!!
Gina . Oct 2016
It was exactly what we were looking for. 5 big stars!!!!!! Very spacious and clean. We even enjoyed the fireplace at night.
Ben . Aug 2016
We love booking vacation properties with you. Thank you! This was our second time.
Deborah . Jun 2016
Maintenance came out right away when we called on the power outage on the Dryer. Problem was fixed right away.
Todd . Feb 2016
What a great cabin! We had 13 & all fit nice n cozy here at Captains Cove! Wifi was wonderful and we watched numerous netflix movies together! Best weekend in many years for our family! Didn't realize it till we checked in but my sister in law Kelly did the escrow for the owners for this cabin. Now we really feel at home! Btw loved the washer dryer!!! Our next set will be exactly like those. Thank you again for sharing your cabin and we will be back in the summer to enjoy the decks outside! Cheers
