Loved the home, location and quiet neighborhood. Very close to the highway and the town as well as the lake.
Manager response:

Lots of space for a big family. The location was great.
Cyndi F. Jun 2021
We enjoyed this home for my family: 4 generations. There's a lot of room here. Most everything you need is here. The linens are GREAT, like at a hotel. The beds are fairly comfortable. The area was relatively quiet, which was nice at night time. There is no air cond, but we came at a time when the open windows were all you needed. There is a whole house fan (even though we didn't know where the switch was until halfway thru the stay). That makes it very nice. The blinds: some open, some don't stay open on their own, but we worked around that. Again, it's a great place to stay when you have multiple ages, or many in your group.

Personal Story: This was a 1st for my parents, my brother's family and my kids and their babies together for a mini vaca. We made a memory together here.

Downside: the laminate floors were very dirty. (carpets seemed fairly new and clean) As we walked barefoot on the laminate wood floor we all had black feet. The dishwasher is NOT cleaning the dishes and had remaining standing water in it when we came into the house, which is also why some of the dishes were dirty, in the cabinet. We had to re-wash the dishes before using them. They advertise a coffee grinder, so we didn't bring ours, and found that there was NOT a grinder here. There is an over abundance of utensils though. The beautiful clock on the wall in the dining room - the hands were broken, someone tried to pull them back with tape.

All in all - we really enjoyed this house. Even with dirty floors, I'd stay here again. I'd just bring my mop and floor cleaner to clean them. They are beautiful wood floors and you can't tell just by looking, that they are dirty, but the very first day even after fresh baths, our feet were dirty, so we learned to wear sandals or socks. Oh, and the refrig ice maker didn't work (might need a defrosting).
Manager response:
Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us, Cyndi. We are glad you enjoyed this home and all it has to offer. We appreciate you bringing these issues to our attention, and we’re happy to report a new coffee grinder will be added and we’ve scheduled deep cleaning and a service visit to inspect the blinds, dishwasher, and clock for repair. We hope you’ll return for another great stay!

Myself & my guest loved this home! So many bedrooms! 4 bedrooms upstairs, a living room/kitchen floor & 2 bedrooms with queen beds downstairs with a pool table. The master bedroom has a beautiful bathtub with walk in closet as well. The balcony was so nice to hang out on & don’t forget to utilize the grill! Also has a heater outside that was useful for us in the evening. Totally saving this cabin for the future fit all 15 of our guests comfortably. The bunk bed bedroom is super spacious as well, no one felt crammed at all. The only thing I would suggest is to take your own pans if you plan to cook there. Pans in the cabin could be updated. Other than that we will surely be returning in the future!
Christopher O. Aug 2020
Everything. Very spacious. Plus the game rooms. The master bedroom was my favorite. Had a great time with my family
Michelle M. Aug 2020
Loved staying here very big and spacious only thing is propane able we’re empty called they said they would replace and they never did !!!
Manager response:
Michelle, We are so glad you enjoyed staying in Knotty Rock Ridge. We apologize for the oversite in customer service with the propane. We hope you will give us the opportunity to serve you better for your next stay. Thank you for the comments letting us know how we need to improve.
Daniel G. Aug 2020
This place was perfect for our big family. We will definitely be coming back.
Cathy B. Aug 2020
This is a good space for a large group, there were enough beds and bathrooms for each family.
Beautiful location as it is less than 10minutes from the lake.
Having said that, this house is poorly maintained. Due to covid, we tried to wipe down surfaces just for peace of mind to sanitize before we let the kids in.. the paper towels that wiped down the stair rails, table surfaces and window sills were disappointingly dirty! 2 members in our group had dust allergies and they were sneezing throughout the time they stayed indoors.
Since we have young kids, they played on the carpet surfaces and their pink leggings turned gray.
The ground floor shower also broke around 8pm and we called customer service and they sent a message to the property manager.
No one called; no one showed up either. Luckily my husband was able to figure it out and fixed it.

The fridge had missing shelves on the door side; the dishwasher’s wire racks were in poor condition; the carpet on the stairs were loose and becomes a trip hazard; some blinds were not working properly and doesn’t go up. All these little things just make a lot of difference. It just feels abandoned by the owners.

It also says that the response time from the property manager is within 24 hours but I sent a message a week before the trip asking if we can extend our stay for another night; sent another follow-up email 2 days later but heard nothing back. If it was not available, a simple “it’s not available” would have resolved it.

All that said, we had fun at Shaver Lake.
Manager response:
Hello, Cathy! Thank you for your review. We are happy to hear that you had an overall fun stay. We value your suggestions surrounding the condition and maintenance issues of the home and welcome the opportunity to improve our homes for future guests. We appreciate you notifying us and we have worked with our local staff to address these concerns. We hope to host you again!

Easy access to the lake, beautiful and spacious bedrooms, loved the front and back balconies
Armando O. Jul 2020
The area wasn't too far from the lake
Arnab D. Jul 2020
Amazing House - very spacious
Ron H. Jun 2020
This is a great place to bring your family for reunion. We will be back .
Karol R. Jun 2020
It was so spacious and comfortable. The house was in a great spot. Bathrooms were nice and clean. We would stay there again.
Amy M. Feb 2020
We loved the location and layout of the rooms and beds. Super comfortable and we would have had a great spot to sled out back if we had any snow.
Janette D. Jan 2020
Cute cabin but looks like it needs a few upgrades. There were a few broken frames and letter misplaced, not sure if it was from previous renters. Bottom bathroom was clogged which made it an inconvenience with the people staying in the two downstairs bedrooms. Two car could not fit in the garage do to the ping pong table in the garage. Other than those few items our stay was nice and relaxing.
Manager response:
We are glad to read you enjoyed your stay. The bathroom has been addressed, and we will be rehanging the frames right away. Thank you!

Location ,cleanliness , room space
Leanna O. Dec 2019
Loved the space and cleanliness. First time in Shaver and we will be back.
George Y. Dec 2019
This my 5th time staying at Knotty Rock Ridge. My family and I have enjoyed every moment. Will definitely be coming back. The only issues we encountered was there was no propane for the BBQ Grill and the washer was not working. These issues are minor considering they are the first in 5 stays. Will definitely recommend to others.
Manager response:
We are so delighted to see you enjoy this home so much! Our maintenance staff was happy to bring more propane, and we apologize we missed it prior to your arrival. A tech has taken care of the washer. We hope to see you again!
Oscar V. Nov 2019
We love staying at this cabin. Perfect location and space. Carpet and couches could use some cleaning. Before our arrival we requested the bbq propane tank to be filled because it has been left empty in previous visits. It was still empty, I was reimbursed but didn’t appreciate the inconvenience. The outdoor heater is broken. Other than that it was great.
Manager response:
Hi, Oscar! The carpets are scheduled for cleaning, the heater will soon be replaced, and we have swapped out the propane tank. Thank you!
Eric L. Oct 2019
Lots of rooms and living space!
Marisa V. Oct 2019
The space was great! Fit 16 people comfortably. Really enjoyed the balcony and pool table. There is a bathroom on every floor which is very convenient. The only bad thing I can think of was the TV in the game room did not have any signal. We called Vacasa customer service and they said they would send someone out, however, noone ever came out to fix it. We tried to troubleshoot the problem ourselves but could not get it to work. Overall we had an great time and would stay here again!
Manager response:
We are glad you loved the home! We are sorry that we were unable to assist with the TV. Our local team has put in an order for a new remote. We hope to host you again in the future!
ATHENA V. Sep 2019
Some of the patio furniture is pretty worn down, and I have rented a cabin a few homes over for less. $$$- that being said; cabin is very roomy, had lots of nice towels, toiletries, Kitchen utensils, etc...I have rented a cabin every Labor Day weekend in Shaver for the past five years and my family said this was the favorite so far. That’s what really matters. We enjoyed our stay :)
Victor M. Aug 2019
not much
Michael C. Aug 2019
This house was a great place for our large family! Kids loved ping pong and pool table. All accommodations were were perfect! Plenty of room for everyone. Beds were comfy. Very clean. Carpet needed to be shampooed, but other than that, perfect! They need a better can opener and a large pot for boiling noodles. Great location and parking since it is right at the end of the street. Backyard was nice and would be awesome for sledding in the winter. For the price compared to other cabins that size, you can’t go wrong. Staff was very courteous and helpful. Made a call about ping pong paddles and they bought some and brought them to us in minutes. After that, we found the stash of paddles and balls. Oh well. If you want a great cabin to rent, look no further. This is the place to be!!!!!!!
Mike P. May 2019
If your like me and you are always skeptical about whether or not you are getting what is being offered well let me tell you VACASA is on point. The cabin was just like the virtual tour stated beautiful plenty of room, beautiful and all accommodations were there as noted. I did have a problem with the fire place I didn’t know how to turn it on well I called vacasa and within an hour there contractor was there very polite man and he turned the fire place on immediately using the provided remote control😂😂❤️ Lmfao right!!! Hey I don’t have that kind of luxury at home how was I suppose to know. Anyway people this cabin experience was phenomenal we will be going back but without KIDS 🙄🙄🙄. Thanks VACASA we had a blast.
Rosa E. Apr 2019
This is the second time we have stayed in this location and we have enjoyed both times. There is plenty of room for our families and the area is very peaceful. It is close to shaver lake and shopping area.
Marlynn S. Mar 2019
Very spacious! We had 16 people stay and it never felt crowded. We enjoyed the sled run in the backyard. Would love to come back!
sangmany s. Jan 2019
Loved the stay here! Perfect backyard with little forts for the kids to play snowball fights. The home had plenty of space for our big family. Nice and cozy living space that made everyone feel at home.
Luiz B. Sep 2018
This place was big we had 16people and it was more than enough room here for everyone. The cabin was closer to the lake then we expected and it was awesome here will look into it again next year
jose d. Jul 2018
Loved everything about this cabin. Very roomy. The kids had a great time!
Patricia S. Jul 2018
As a family, we were disappointed in this rental and with the vacasa company. Vacasa was nearly impossible to get ahold of. The house wasn't that clean and two bathrooms were clogged. Not sure if we will use this company or rental again.
Manager response:
We are so sorry to see this guest did not enjoy their stay with us. Our agents always do their best to answer calls in a timely manner, but we understand this can turn into a bit of a wait during the busy summer season. The bathrooms have been unclogged, and the carpets have been cleaned. Thank you!
Chad J. Jun 2018
We had a total of 16 people and there was enough space. A few guest complained that their beds were too hard. One guest pointed out the stained carpet. Other than that it was comfortable stay. We would rent it again.
Eulalia A. Jun 2018
Great for a family vacation suficiente space for a big family, great location, great morning and sunset view.
Albert A. Apr 2018
It’s a very spacious cabin, great outdoor smell, room were great makes you feel at home, pool table and ping pong table were perfect
Danny G. Apr 2018
the place was great we had the best time
Leilani K. Apr 2018
The house is nice and clean. Teenagers love it. They enjoyed the pool table and their privacy room in the 2nd. floor. 16 of us felt very comfortable to stay there. The house is clean. The sheets and the towels are very tidy too. But it seems the refrigerator isn't cold enough. We might need more forks and knives to accommodate the amount of people staying. Overall, this is a wonderful house to stay!
Elizabeth B. Mar 2018
This home has amazing potential. It is lovely and spacious. Two families can easily spread out and not be on top of each other. The heater works extremely well. Many mountain cabins are often cold, but this home is well heated. There are tons of beds, and the kids loved the bunk bed "kids room". Unfortunately, though, the house seems to not be well cared for. The carpet is ripped in multiple places, the couch is also ripped and the stuffing is constantly all over the floor. The shower curtain is mildewy. The teflon coating on the pots is coming off, making many of the pots unsafe to use. Every single ping pong paddle is broken in some way, and most of the balls are dented. One of the bar chairs was broken and unsafe to use. And so forth. With some attention and updating, this house could be restored and top notch. But in its current state, there are multiple issues.
Manager response:
We are sorry to see this guest felt the home was uncared for. There were new paddles and balls, still in their packages, at the ping pong table for guest use. We are sorry to see they missed these. We have purchased throw rugs to go over the two small holes in the carpet while the owner chooses, orders, and installs new flooring. New pots and pans have been ordered and will be in place soon. Thank you!
Sandra C. Mar 2018
It was perfect! Location. Size and rooms. The kitchen was well equipped. I’ll be back.
Chris O. Feb 2018
This is the 2nd year in a row we stayed at this house. The decòr and furniture is so beautiful and makes us feel so at home with that warm feeling. Area is so nice and peaceful, a little bummed there was no snow (early feb) when we went, but we made the best of it.
Danielle C. Feb 2018
It was a great place to relax with friends, cook meals, play games, and stay up chatting.
Lilia S. Jan 2018
Very spacious home!
Joshua E. Dec 2017
When we first booked this for our family I was unsure if we could comfortably stay here with 4 families. There was more than enough room for everyone, and we all had plenty of room to relax and have fun.
