This cabin is awesome. Great location. Large. The pool room is awesome. Only downfalls was it isn't very well stocked. One example is we only had 3 forks. Considering they make you check in later then usual and check out earlier to "deep clean" it wasn't very clean either. Either way, we had a blast and look forward to coming back!

My kids, husband, mom, brother and I had a great time at the Pond View Lodge cabin! The beds were very comfortable and all the appliances worked well. We all had a lot of fun in the game room upstairs. We watched movies, while played ping pong and pool. The view of the pond, from our deck was very pretty. The kids tried catching frogs with the fishing net, that was provided for guests, at the cabin. The only thing we needed more of at the cabin were forks. I believe there were only four forks. Other than that, the cabin was well stocked. We will definitely make plans to stay again, in the near future. Thank you. We had a wonderful, fun, peaceful time at your cabin!

Great area but this property is not maintained at the level as the surrounding neighborhood. Rent is in line with the area but not this property. Clearness suffered as well with kitchen counters and floor sticky and dirty. One stand out is a great poll table. In spit of some reviews, parking is more than sufficient. This might support one neighbor calling the place a "frat house". Garage apparently where garbage is stored. Two full containers left from previous rentals or cleaning services. The smell got riper daily. We were there 10 days and had the carry out trash to town.
Manager response:
Ed, thank you for your review! We apologize for any housekeeping issues you experienced during your stay, including the garbage in the garage. We encourage our in-home guests with any concerns to call our 24 hour Guest Services line. Our local staff is more than happy to promptly address any issues. We hope to have an opportunity to better impress you in the near future!

I’m sorry to say this was the 2nd time staying at this cabin and it was not clean. The grounds were dirty and the inside was hardly clean. Vacasa mentions they are taking extra time to clean, but that was far from true here. If I was looking for a pet friendly cabin I would not recommend. Carpets are filthy and needs updating.
Manager response:
Amber, thank you for your feedback. We apologize if the cleanliness of the home left something to be desired, and we will follow-up with our housekeeping team to see that future cleans are completed to our standards. We appreciate that you reached out to us about the situation. The local manager did call you back and left a message asking if you'd like assistance with any of these matters. Our guest service agents are available 24 hours a day and if any issues such as cleanliness arise we encourage guests to let us know so that we can assist. We hope you'll join us again soon for a truly relaxing stay.

Absolutely awesome! Great time, great home! Spacious! Unforgettable weekend!
Valarie K. Jun 2020
We loved staying here with the kids. The pond and house are a great place for their imaginations. The house itself needs maintenance; if you’re looking for fancy this is not the place for you. But it was peaceful, the space was comfortable, and it was very clean. It was only 10 min from the lake. For the price I would definitely recommend it and stay there again.

This home has large bedrooms and is very family friendly. Great location in Sierra Cedars looking right out at the pond. This is our second time at this cabin and would definitely come back again next year. No wine glasses for the adults but hey, we managed!

Huge bedrooms. Upstairs game room was key. Quiet neighborhood. Great location.
Rafi B. Aug 2019
The house is perfect for large groups. Location was great. The upstairs game room was perfect for hanging out. Only complaint is the home could use some maintenance. Overall great time
Marina C. Jul 2019
This house is very spacious and has a nice pond view, however, along with that view come all the little critters. Everything worked well, the rooms were huge, the game room was tons of fun for the kids. Very close to stores and lake.

Great view of pond and plenty of room for kids to run around..

We’ve been going to Shaver Lake for years and I think this is the most snow we’ve seen there. All fresh snow. The cabin was great for our family. Very casual, retro style. The kitchen could use some upgrades (stove) but no real problem. We hope to come back in the summer. Thank you owners for sharing your cabin.

A really nice home for the weekend was there for a four-day weekend despite one of the stoves not working it worked out because they had 2 of them they provided wood for the fireplaces which was nice we didn't have to go down in the snowy weather to get any they had everything we needed it was a little outdated but really comfortable and a great size for a big family the cable wasn't great but that's expected in the snow storm we were in would definitely book this place again the rooms were very spacious and despite the restroom not working downstairs we still had a complete restroom upstairs which was fine.

Perfect choice for our winter family vacation. Couldn't have been better. We'll be back!
Dan G. Jan 2019
Great Cabin, clean, lots of rooms, wood fireplace (wood provided by owners) everything great exept the stupid keyless entry lock that kept us outside in the cold until Vacasa found another way to get us inside. Overall great cabin, I will look for it again next year.

Large space, great location with the open area and pond behind the house. Pool table and ping pong a definite plus. Ping pong table was extremely worn but usable. Large bedrooms were good as was the large kitchen. WiFi was good and we depended on it for our video entertainment. Fit our family of 9 and the dogs. However, the house is worn, from the carport to the furniture to the appliances. There was no cable - brought our own Fire tv to get anything besides antennae feed with 9 stations. TV had to be turned on manually. We were only able to get one of the DVD players working. A good experience and fun by all.
Manager response:
We appreciate this guest's feedback and we are glad to hear they enjoyed their stay! We will make sure to address any potential issues with the DVD player. We look forward to hosting this guest again soon!

4th time we have stayed at this property. Has been recently deep cleaned and new curtains, bedspreads and sofa. Perfect for a group of up to 10-12. Will stay here again.
Liliana R. Feb 2018
Right In front of pond. There was snow when we went but I’m sure it looks great during summer season.
Michele M. Jan 2018
The biggest value on the mountain. It isn't fancy but its got tons of room and all the necessities. The whole group will feel casual and have fun in a retro environment.
Diane H. Jan 2018
Large, clean and comfortable
