We found this house for a last minute winter getaway. I got notified about early check in which was awesome because it was during the beginning of a long snow storm. However when I arrived the codes on the door did not work. My only option was to be on hold with Vacasa to get another code option. I was on hold for over an hour! Let’s not forget it was already snowing and I had my young children with me. I also emailed Vacasa about it hoping they would call me back quicker. Anyway an agent picked up and we got in. The house was very clean, there was definitely plenty of room. 3 bedroom 2 bath upstairs. Master was nice with nice French doors out to deck. My boys loved the bunk bed room as it was spacious and cozy. Thankfully we brought our own wood for the fireplace because it stated the house wood was for the owners/ or you’ll be charged. When I emailed Vacasa about using the fireplace before our trip I wish they would have mentioned that, because we would have brought more wood (especially because we lost power for 45 minutes one night Most lily due to the storm ) . I preferred staying upstairs due to the warmth/ more windows and light. We were allowed to keep house at 68 degrees according to home information. Downstairs was cool for the kids but it was colder and a bit musty smelling. I loved the decks! I wish we could have got to lower deck easier. You have to go inside through garage to get to any lower level of the home. Lots of seating on deck was nice as we just watched the snow fall some evenings. Kitchen was small, but manageable. There were plenty of dish ware and utensils. They did have one baking pan that didn’t even fit in the oven... (I had to switch to another...probably could toss it in my opinion). Oven did seem a bit smaller. (definitely burnt stuff due to higher elevations beware! Lol) We had to restart wifi box and it finally worked, so my husband could get a few work emails done. Also we couldn’t find any tv shows etc. Thank goodness I brought my kids dvds. I didn’t see one dvd option in the home. Also not sure the dryer was working correctly we attempted to dry some of our snow gear and it never dried. The information that is emailed vs the information in the home needs to be on the same page for “leaving/ checking out” one said start laundry and the other had it crossed out. So we didn’t start any.... but then we totally forgot to run the dishwasher before we left. I guess too much confusion. Again 4 stars because we enjoyed our stay other than little things here and there. Plenty of play area for kids. Comfy house. As a vrbo owner myself I just know there’s room for improvement in this home, but we made it work.

Just rented this house over the 3 day weekend. Gameroom is great for the kids ( and adults!) family room is cozy and the house is well taken care of. Easy in and out access. A couple things that might be helpful to know that we’re not on the website.
1) the gameroom and additional bedroom are accessed through the garage.
2) the kitchen is a bit small and dated without a lot of counter space so if you plan on doing a lot of cooking keep this in mind.
3) a more detailed list of what is available in the kitchen would be nice. We should have brought some of our own stuff and left some stuff at home!
We did have an excellent meal at the Trading Post in Shaver which was nice.

It’s located in a nice and quiet neighborhood. The surroundings of the home were perfect for the kids to play in. Loved the bottom level for a family with kiddos! It was spacious enough for the kids to run around in with plenty of games to play. Sufficient amount of parking since the owners allow guests to use the 2 car garage. Amenities were all in working order. Appreciated the extra refrigerator in the garage, especially with the Christmas holiday! We all had a great time! We would recommend this home to our friends and family. We will be back next year!

It’s really good house I’ll have a space very clean I really like it for my group we are a meditation group and this house is a clean energy house thank you so much

This house was perfect for Our family. Game room down at the basement was perfect for all the kids and teenagers. Loved the quiet backyard and the location was perfect for those who are planning to visit to lake. The only problem we had was either we didn’t know how to work the AC right or maybe the house didn’t come with it. The one option it had was Heat or Fan. Not good for summer stays. House was at 80-83 degrees thru all the night (even with windows opened).
Manager response:
We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay! This home does not have air conditioning listed as one of the amenities. We hope to host you again soon!

We had a great time. This home was perfect for our vacation. Kitchen was fully equipped, the entire home was super clean. Loved the long deck with extra sitting for everyone. Kids enjoyed the air hockey table. Hope to be back soon.

This home was close to town, and had neighbors, but there is endless nature off the back deck. It worked well for our large group, and the teens and tweens loved having their own space downstairs.

After a very bad experience with a different vacation rental, we had no choice but to pack up our things and leave our trip early. At the last minute we found this home via Vacasa and it saved our vacation! The staff was very helpful when we had trouble getting into the home, and the home was very clean and welcoming. Thank you for saving the day!
