Enjoy a small slice of perfection at this snug chalet just minutes from the shores of Shaver Lake! With a huge deck for the summer months and a cozy wood stove for the winter, this charming vacation rental has everything you need for a delightful year-round retreat.

Located in the secluded village of Shaver Lake, this lovely home lies within walking distance of the town's peaceful main street, where you'll find shops, restaurants, and cafes tucked in the evergreens. After getting settled, head to the water! One of Central California's most beautiful lakes, Shaver Lake offers incredible boating, swimming, and fishing, as does Huntington Lake to the north.

You'll find a fully equipped kitchen for fixing all your favorite meals, and free WiFi is provided so you can easily stay connected with everyone back home.

Treat yourself to a little peace and quiet among the natural beauty of the Sierra National Forest. Book your reservation today!

Had an amazing time, definitely looking to come back soon

We loved how convenient the area was right across from food, gas and sports stores! The drive there was easy and clear! The neighbors were friendly and helpful. Inside was very clean and tidy the owners go above and beyond to make sure you have all necessities needed, as far all kitchen utensils and tools, laundry pods and extra blankets, they are very thoughtful in ensuring a wonderful stress free stay! We will definitely book Pandora again!

When I pulled up to the house there was a bag of trash on the driveway. Went inside to find more trash. Kitchen sink had trash, bathroom had trash. Home was not cleaned well enough at all... ESPECIALLY in today’s world. I was incredibly disappointed. Spent the entire first day of two cleaning so my family felt safe.

we loved how close to food and lake access we were

Was affordable and good location
Alejandro G. Jan 2020
Place was nice. It Carrie's alot of post and pans so that's really nice. It was also very clean upon arrival.

Some of the negatives had to have been, the water heater would run out after ten minutes of use so when we showered it had to be 30 min to an hour apart if you wanted hot water. One of the stairs is really rocky while stepping on it and feels like it can go out at any moment (the stairs outside). The power went out for 2 of the rooms half way into our stay, tried to locate the breaker box but couldnt find it so we were stuck with no power. The washing machine didnt work at all, and the water valve leading to it would leak when you tried to wash. If your big on wifi well, it's a pretty poor connection 80% of the time. I know these are all simple things. And I could have honestly fixed most of it (I'm a pretty good handyman) but were supposed to be on vacation not at work.

Overall place was alright. Would I stay here again? Probably not, would I rent through Vacasa, probably, Yeah sure.
Manager response:
We apologize for the inconveniences you experienced during your visit. The WiFi can be problematic at times, but power cycling modem usually fixes this. Maintenance is assessing and addressing the stair, and we have turned up the water heater. Thank you for staying with us!

Let me just say, if you plan on staying longer than a weekend, and are going to be cooking, pick a differnt place. The kitchen is ridiculously small with no place to store food, especially for 8 people for a week. Also, with no dishwasher, you will spend a lot of time washing dishes. The beds downstairs were very uncomfortable and the place could use some new pillows and sheets. There were plenty of blankets. We packed thinking we would have a washer and dryer, but the washer didn't work and was moldy. I used a towel with bleach water to wipe down the stair rail and it turned the towel black. Yuck! Well, enough said.
Manager response:

My family and I loved how close to town the location is. Beds were comfy and plenty of linens. We came up to go boating and it was nice to be able to park our boat trailer at the house. They have updated the bbq to a nice gas one. In the pictures it shows a charcoal bbq. I gave 4 stars because the front stairs are a little uneven. But otherwise the house had everything it advertises. We would stay here again.

Very nice cabin to stay in. We enjoyed our stay there. I loved that each bedroom had extra blankets and there was an exact number of dining chairs for each one of us. Very comfy sofas. Cabin close to stores, restaurants, shops and lake.

Loved it..amazing experiece.. Wejust hada little problem with opening the door the code that we had it wasnot working but i just called the office and and in no time we were in my family loved. We will be going back soon.
Larry M. Sep 2018
Access was a problem, as the door access code did not work. After contacting the Vacasa main office to obtain the access code to the adjacent lockbox, we were finally able to get in. The furnishings are spartan but adequate. There is no dishwasher, and the headroom of one of the upstairs closets is somewhat restricted by the sloping roof. On the plus side, the rent is reasonable, it has four roomy bedrooms, and it is located near the center of town. It served us well as a home base for hikes into the surrounding Sierra National Forest.

We loved it! There was plenty of room for our whole family! Be careful with the stairs. They are steep. There is no AC in the cabin, but the cool evening air felt great! Shaver Lake is a beautiful place to stay!
MICHELLE M. Jun 2018
We loved the privacey of renting a cabin and that camping felt glamorous!
Blake G. Apr 2018
The cabin is nice and well taken care of. Lots of room for activities. Only downfall is it feels like your on top of your neighbors.
Jami M. Mar 2018
Loved it!! Perfect location and perfect size. Loved the movie channels and free WiFi.

The dryer made loud noises but worked ok
Lance H. Jan 2018
Biggest downside was kitchen which was awful. If you plan on cooking, this is not your place. Location was great.
Marlu M. Dec 2017
Very pleased with our stay over the weekend! Was surprised with the tv and cable since I did bring a 2 year old, so on our down time we watched Christmas movies. Thanks for all the kitchen ware to use.
