Very spacious cabin! Big kitchen, laundry room, and fun game room. It was clean and comfortable, would definitely stay again!
Brian and Denise L. Jul 2022
Everything! Big bedrooms, lovely decor, HUGE gameroom with lotsa games for every age, HUGH deck overlooking green space, fully stock, modern kitchen. Loved everything about this cabin.
Maribel M. Jun 2022
This is our 2nd time staying here and it’s still just as amazing as the first time! The place is great, well maintained and clean. We will definitely continue booking this cabin when we are looking for a mountain retreat.
Jennifer A. Jun 2022
Great home, clean and well equipped kitchen with a spectacular deck. The game room was so fun! A huge plus with teen boys. Downsides: ALL closets are locked, 2 bedrooms had dressers, plan accordingly. Other homes are very close in proximity - neighbors had a rental as well that was obviously over capacity. Huge parties all day, every day. Sheriff is not in the area and wouldn’t do anything. I’m sure this was a one-off and should not discourage your booking this lovely home.
Bailey W. Mar 2022
Cabin was perfect for us & our friends. Game room was a huge hit with the pub style arcade game system along with the shuffleboard, air hockey game & pool table.
Well stocked kitchen! We will defined be back to spend another great vacation at Bear Bottoms Cabin.
Liliana R. Mar 2022
Game room was like the only plus to this house. All beds were uncomfortable. Very limited space in kitchen, no spices bring your own stuff. No access to garage like other houses. Couch in living room was blown out. Game room tv had lines going through screen. Other then that we made the best of it loved the outside deck.
Manager response:
Thank you for sharing feedback about your experience, Liliana! We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience you experienced with the condition of the living room couch and the game room tv had lines going through during your stay. Rest assured that we will follow up with the appropriate parties regarding your experience. Thanks for staying with us and we hope for another opportunity to impress you with a much more enjoyable stay!

Awesome game room and well stocked kitchen for cooking.

Bear Bottom is a lovely cabin with all the amenities a family would need plus more. The game room was an added bonus that we loved. It was very clean & roomy & comfortable.
There are a few little things that would have made it perfect:
1. hot water takes a very long time to come out so a lot of water is wasted waiting.
2. the jacuzzi tub did not work but that would have been an added plus.
3. laundry detergent would have been nice. We considered doing a load but didn't know to bring any. However, didn't really need to do laundry since we were only there for 4 nights.
4. the central heating works well, however when downstairs was comfortable the upstairs bedrooms are too warm esp the master room upstairs. The folks sleeping upstairs had to have their windows open to be comfortable.
All in all the stay was great fun for our family & we enjoyed the cabin very much & would return.
Thank you.
Manager response:
Hi, Shanny! We're so glad you stayed with us and appreciate your helpful feedback. The hot water does take a while to get through the cabin due to its size. We apologize if this caused any concern. We will remind housekeeping to provide the appropriate amounts of detergents and have scheduled an inspection for the jacuzzi tub. Thank you!
Brian and Denise L. Nov 2021
Our stay was awesome! This cabin has everything you need. We will be back!
Delilah M. Sep 2021
Love everything about the cabin thank you for letting us stay there and have a great experience
Mike A. Jul 2021
Loved that game room it was great love for our whole family young and old. The space was nice everyone could just chill or take a hike. Lake was easy to get to for fun in the water . Lots of sleep space . Well maintained.
Melinda A. Jun 2021
We absolutely loved this cabin in Shaver lake! We had 3 families and had plenty of space for everyone. The game room was so fun! The shuffle board and air hockey tables were the favorites! The Pac Man game was a blast too!

Also, it was great to have fans in each room given the first night we were there was pretty hot! The deck is spectacular ! We had dinner every night out on the deck which had plenty of seating for our large group.

I have stayed at other Vacasa properties and this was BY FAR my favorite! It was VERY clean upon arrival. It had enough TP, paper towels, and a stocked kitchen with plenty of kitchen supplies. The mattresses were great! We brought our own sheets, blankets and pillows only because we are very particular about our bedding and wanted to be extra comfy.

The location of this cabin is perfect. There are many nice trails in the area, and the drive to the lake is less than 10 minutes away. It's in a quiet area which we really enjoyed.

We will definitely book this place again! We absolutely loved our stay! Thank you !

Really nice cabin for a family.
Upon arrival we found the cabin very clean, it has beautiful large deck space and plenty of furnishings to accommodate the whole family. We will definitely try and rent this cabin again in the future and I highly recommend it!
There were just a few negative things that I believe if corrected would make the stay more enjoyable.
We were under the impression that since it was a cabin it would have basic seasonings in the pantry, but it did not. Also it only had a half roll of paper towels available. In the game room the air hockey didn’t seem to work (or maybe we just didn’t know how to make it work properly) the foosball table was kinda wobbly so we we didn’t want to use in fear of breaking it, the shuffle board table was also kinda wobbly (but still usable). Some of the blinds on the windows were not functional. The shower curtains had a moldy type smell. In one of the bedrooms a TV did not work and two of the remote controls the batteries were dead that we had to replace the batteries.
With all that being said it is a very nice cabin and we had a good time!
Now…. The biggest issue that kept me from rating it higher is because of Vacasa. Their customer service is horrible, I tried contacting them over a 4 week period to add to our stay (including numerous emails and phone calls) with no response. The only way I was finally able to get in contact with them is through their Instagram when I posted a comment about lack of communication or contact and then they finally reached out to me. I will be very hesitant in the future to use Vacasa again.
Deanna K. Apr 2021
Very nice well kept cabin. The game room is awesome entertainment. The only complaint there were no fitted sheets on any of the beds and no extra blankets for this time of year. I would also suggest to leave extra trash bags and paper towels. We definitely would rent again in the future!
Aleeda R. Feb 2021
We had a perfect family vacation at this cabin. We wanted to give our kids some time in the snow and the cabin was the perfect location. There was a sled path right by the balcony so we got to let them sled and relax. The cabin has everything you would need. Highly recommend !
Holly T. Feb 2021
The home itself is very nice. The kitchen is stocked very well with lots of dishes, utensil, pots, pans, everything you can imagine. Wood was provided for the wood stove which was very nice. Plenty of room for a large family. Game room is huge with plenty of entertainment. The pool table, shuffleboard, Foosball, and air hockey all needed repairs. This was a little disappointing. Sadly, even though this is a nice home, the cleaning service did not do a very good job.
Manager response:
Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us, Holly. We are glad you enjoyed this home and we appreciate you bringing these issues to our attention. We are happy to report that deep cleaning has been completed, and the game tables have been repaired. We hope to have another chance to impress you!
Debra N. Dec 2020
Everything was really nice enough rooms for everybody the place was big my family had a blast there we will probably book again sometime in the future
Tammy P. Jul 2020
Large deck with large group seating.
JoAnne K. Jul 2020
Love the new patio that the homeowners added on.
We ate dinner out there every evening.
Paul B. Jul 2020
Excellent choice for our family. It is 10 minute drive to the lake and 18 minutes to the north end where we rented a ski boat. The place was clean except a foul smell in the utility room and the pull out mattress was disgusting. The ball for the foosball game was missing and the air hockey game was not working properly. It was broken at the top where the scoreboard is located. It wasn't a big deal because we spent most of the time outdoors at the lake or on a hike. The pac man game was a big hit.
Tammy B. Apr 2020
Had a wonderful time! They literally thought of everything! Great Cabin!! Definitely will be back!!
Bryan T. Feb 2020
We had an amazing time. I definitely recommend the lodge to anyone who wants the mountain experience!!!!!
Laura D. Nov 2019
Bear Bottom Cabin was a great getaway for our family. The house was spacious, clean, and well equipped. We enjoyed the game room and sitting at the big kitchen table playing board games. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed. Loved it and would definitely stay again!
Glen H. Nov 2019
We loved all the different activities at the cabin and the comfy beds!
Claud Y. Aug 2019
Loved the game room and the outside fire pit for making smores!
CHERLYN C. Aug 2019
Second time back at Bear Bottom Cabin and we have the best time always! New wrap around deck is beautiful! Entertainment room a definite plus! Hope to be back for the winter.
Jessica W. May 2019
It was plenty big for our party of 12. The game room had much to offer. We even had two nights of snow. We made some great memories here!
Carolyn B. May 2019
House was centrally located to Yosemite, Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks (within 2.5 hours drive). We made easy day trips to all three during our stay. Shaver Lake is a nice destination as well.
House accommodated 6 adults well with plenty of space for more. Each bedroom had its own television and individual feed for satellite. We traveled as three couples and each had access to their own bathroom. House was clean and well kept. Plenty of dishes, glassware and kitchenware. I would not hesitate to recommend staying here.
Pamela C. Apr 2019
There was plenty of room and the game room was awesome
Paul S. Feb 2019
Stay was great, space was as described with plenty of room for the family and the game room was a big hit. There were a few issues and I assume mainly weather-related. When we showed up the house cleaners were still working, but with the winter storm had just come through I assume it was access related. The dishwasher wasn't working and they forgot paper towels etc. but overall a great stay and would absolutely stay again.
Manager response:
We are glad to hear you had a great time. During inclement weather, our housekeepers try to stay on schedule to the best of their abilities and we apologize for the inconvenience. We hope to host you again soon!
Amanda F. Jan 2019
Such a fun family friendly house that I recommend everybody visit!
Seng C. Oct 2018
Love the place. Great accommodation.
Windy M. Aug 2018
Loved it, beautiful cabin, seemed new, great set up for large family. Only downfall was power went out a couple times but came right back on, but cable and internet wouldn’t work after that. Had to have tech guy come.
Other than that , would stay again!
Marisa V. Aug 2018
We had a terrific time! We were surprised to see so much wildlife. We saw deer and wild turkeys near the cabin. We told scary stories at night and got to star gaze in front of the cabin. My 2year old loved the wrap around deck and the older kids loved the game room. The reason I couldn’t give 5 stars was that their was not enough space to store our non-refridgerated food. Also no AC. The upstairs rooms got quite warm. The fans helped somewhat. Overall it was a fine cabin.
Claud Y. Apr 2018
This cabin was so well equipped. Very clean and inviting. Our family of 8 had everything we needed and enjoyed our stay very much.
Jose V. Feb 2018
It was our first rental and we are so happy. Definitely looking forward to staying here again!
Linda W. Feb 2018
This is our second stay at Bear Bottom Cabin and we hope its not out last. We had a family cabin in Sierra Cedars for years so it was like going home. The cabin has a huge game room so its perfect for kids, young and old! Great kitchen!
Earlene E. Feb 2018
Cabin was furnished nicely
Linda . Mar 2017
Very nice cabin and we thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience, location, etc. The game room provided us with lots of entertainment from pool to air hockey. The only thing I would advise renters is to bring your own condiments and games (salt, pepper, baggies, board games, etc.). Also, there is very limited space for your food so we just had lots of food stored on the floor near their pantry. Great cabin with lots of amenities.
Cory . Feb 2017
The property could use a few more hooks in the kitchen and master bathroom for towels. We felt bad hanging towels on the cupboards and shower curtains. And maybe a cupboard to store your food, etc.

Beautiful cabin, fully stocked, game room to keep everyone entertained for hours ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ This was our annual family Christmas trip and by far the best one yet! The cabin was perfect, plenty of room for the 12 of us. After a day of playing in the snow we would come back to the cabin and continue the fun in the game room, it was fantastic. Thank you to the owners for sharing their beautiful cabin! We can't wait to come and stay again
Donna . Jun 2016
My family absolutely loved the Bear Bottom Cabin. Especially my husband who fell in love with the wide comfy recliner in the living room. This chair was awesome. The kids enjoyed having access to the game room with a foosball table, pool table and air hockey. A great place to hang after a long day at the lake. All the beds were quite comfortable plus it was great that every bedroom had it's own TV with Dish Network. The cabin was quite clean and you can tell the owners take pride in ownership. We loved how the owner decorated the home with photos and paintings of the local area along with mountain dishware. Spacious bedrooms and bathrooms. Plenty of room for a family of 10. We highly recommend a summer vacation at the Bear Bottom Cabin. See you next summer.
Janie . Feb 2016
This cabin was absolutely perfect! We couldn't have picked a better place. It had everything we needed and more. There was a perfect hill behind the back deck where you can sled down for hours of play There was snow all around us to play in as well. I wish we could have stayed longer to enjoy more. I will be returning soon with the family and we are already planning the next trip! The perfect place for family time!!!!
Tara P. Jan 2016
This was our first cabin rental in Shaver and we absolutely loved it! The house was great and had everything we needed. It was absolutely beautiful to be out at Shaver with the snow falling. There was so much snow and there was the perfect hill right behind the house foe us to go sledding on. Staff was very friendly and kind. We just got back home today and are already talking about our next trip back. My 3 year old didnt want to leave!
Sherwin . Jan 2016
Very helpful phone app and a lot of information in the app. Very easy to get ahold of office and get answers to question quickly. Home had a generator, and it was needed for 10hrs on Tuesday. If any complaints its that the floors are filthy, and we are not used of wearing shoes in the house, but had to due to our socks were black if we didn't, and the kitchen, front entry and hallway tile were sticky, Thats it. Would plan a return visit in a second! Very well stocked kitchen no matter what kind of cooking/baking we needed during our stay. Great open area for the family to sit by table or relax in the great room and still able to converse. The wood stove was a treat to have on in the evening and morning breakfast. Very Nice Home. Thanks so much for the great memories we made during our family 25th celebration trip! Sherwin
