We really enjoyed our stay at this place. It's cozy and fit 5 of us very comfortably. Sierra Cedars is one of our preferred places at Shaver Lake. Staying right on the pond is really nice, and the deck is a great hang out spot. Thanks for a great time!

Quite clean comfortable very nicely kept would of appreciated knowing before hand washer was out of order but other than that enjoyable stay would book again.
Manager response:
Hi, Maria! We apologize you were unaware of the state of the washing machine. The owners have purchased a new one that will be installed prior to the end of February. Thank you for staying with us!

We like that it was next to the little lake.The only problem was that the propane for the bbq was empty so we had to pay 30 dollars to fill it up.The cabin was close to Shaver lake’s lake.
Manager response:
Hello Alfredo, Thank you for leaving a review. We do wish you would have contacted our 24/7 customer care so we could have had our local team bring out a new propane tank for you. We apologize for the inconvenience. We do hope you will allow us to host you again in the future.

We had a great long weekend in the snow. The house was clean and well cared for. We had plenty of room for our family and pet. The view was great and the house very comfortable. Thank you for sharing your home with us!

We had a wonderful thanksgiving at the Waters Edge Cabin. Cabin was cozy and we appreciated the baking tins and pot holders provided by Vacasa for the occasion. We were missing a few essential kitchen items though... large spoons, bowl scraper, working peeler, etc. Would be great if more basic-items could be provided. Otherwise an overall great experience!

The complete silence. No traffic. No planes flying in and out of the airport in Seattle
Be sure to have the directions "printed" out. Have your phone charged for Google Maps, and do not try to find the house in the dark.

It was a nice little getaway. Unfortunately, the weekend we stayed, it was over 100 degrees outside and very smokey from wildfires- although the weather is not in control, this heat wave caused the cabin to be 90-100 degrees even at midnight. Needless to say, it was a hot couple of days with little sleep. The few provided rotary fans obviously didn’t help. Also, the neglighboring cabin brought 3 dogs with them which they would leave out when they left for the day, causing endless barking. Besides those few issues which were not really in control of the property/vacasa, it was an OK trip. I probably wouldn’t ever rent a cabin in the area again unless it was winter or some type of AC was included.

House amenities are good. Relaxing & enjoyable little holiday with family. Spacious & clean. Loved it

The location was nice with the view of the pond. The bedrooms were clean and the house was a good size for our group of 6. The negatives were all of the bugs that came with being so close to the pond. Bring your bug spray! Lots of spider webs all over that could have been swept clean before our arrival. The house was very warm. There's no a.c. so they provide a fan for all of the rooms. There were mouse droppings in the bottom of the stove and in the cabinets. There's no space for pantry items. The cabin did have a nice stocked kitchen as far as plates, cups, utensils, pans, etc. Over all I had a good experience but I didn't LOVE this cabin and would probably stay in a different location next time.
Manager response:
We did clean the spiderwebs, but it's hard to stay on top of them in the mountains. We apologize we missed any mouse droppings, but we feel confident we caught the culprits. Thank you!

Perfect spot for kids (who are water smart-since by the pond). Lots to do close by, great house and location. My only gripe was I saw 2 mice peak out of the holes of the fireplace the first night and I emailed vacasa without a response and called but was on hold forever so gave up. Also u could tell/smell that it was a pet friendly house.

We loved the location of our cabin and it nice & clean. We would stay at this home again!

As a real estate photographer, I see a lot of cabins. Some have a certain indescribable feeling that you look for when you go to the mountains. This is one of them. With the lodge decor, large deck, and a great view of the pond from the living room, it provides a sense of relaxation. Whether you have one person, or a group of six, it doesn't feel crammed or uncomfortable. I highly recommend this cabin for anyone looking for an authentic mountain escape. Thanks for a great trip!

The view was amazing and we loved hanging out on the huge deck! WiFi made it easy for us to watch our favorite shows. Thank you!
Debbie . Sep 2017
Great stay, cabin was perfect, cozy,warm and very homie and comfortable. Only recommendations are to fix the screen doors. Awesome view, I'd definitely book again. Contacts with SLVR was great.

Amazing cabin! The only downside was no internet but in the end I loved being able to really disconnect from the real world and completely enjoy my vacation. The cabin had everything we could possibly need with plenty of space for everyone to have a comfortable stay. We went on long walks and enjoy the lightning and thunder storm one night lighting up the lake! BBQ was great and the wrap around deck allowed us to eat almost all our meals outside with an incredible view! Can't wait to come back in the winter time.
