If you're looking to add that extra spark to your next romantic retreat, look no further than this cozy cottage in the foothills of the Sierra Nevadas!

During the day, take advantage of this rental's superb location to explore the natural beauty of Central California. Hike beneath towering Ponderosas at Dinkey Creek, or glide a kayak through the tranquil, reflective waters of Shaver Lake. If you're in the mood for a more strenuous adventure, head north to China Peak Resort, where you'll find mountain biking, rock climbing, disc golf, and skiing!

Beautiful view

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay at this cabin. The kitchen is fully equipped, the view off the deck is excellent, and perhaps our favorite thing was how quiet this location is--nothing making noise but the wind and the birds. Very relaxing location!

Big stain on the couch. For the price you would think they would replace the cover...
A steep downhill drive way with no outside lighting
Don't arrive after dark in the snow!

Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Federico. The couch cover will be replaced, housekeeping will be doing a deep clean, and we will discuss outdoor lighting with the homeowner. We hope to see you again!

This place was perfect. Quiet, clean, beautiful and serene. I am definitely coming back.
Lyndi H. Aug 2020
This was a nice private little home perfect for 2 people. Not as clean as I would have liked and the video camera pointed at the table on the deck was a little weird. Made it feel not quite so private. The house had almost everything we needed... there were no butter knives or dish towels. But we made due.
Manager response:
Hi, Lyndi! We are so glad you chose to stay with us and took the time to leave your review. The camera will be taken down immediately, and new cutlery has been ordered. Please do not hesitate to reach out about any issues, especially cleaning, so we can take care of any problems right away. Thank you!

My wife and I stayed the weekend here in the middle of January 2020 and it was amazing. The cabin had everything we needed inside, all we needed to bring was food. The scenery was beautiful. I can’t think of anything negative to say. It truly was the perfect getaway.

...because it’s such a romantic getaway for two people I Don’t want others to know about it! The property is in such excellent condition, it’s so refreshing. Many beat up rentals in Shaver...this is not one of them. Loved it.

Very quaint, with perfect sunsets on the back patio! Overall loved it. With the exception of the kitchen sink, which took along time to drain! Paul J.

Great location, parking and views. The den furniture was not very comfortable. Aside from that, great, quiet place for two.

I enjoyed this beautiful home. My husband and I stayed here for our 1st year anniversary and had a great time. The house is very clean and equipped with many reg household products such as pots, pans, mixing bowls, cooking spices ext. Wolfgang puck pans were great to cook in. The view was awesome and the shower felt soo good I never wanted to get out. The bed was comfortable and pillows felt so soft I had to write down the name. Very nice dishes and wine glasses. I even set a romantic table setting. We went down to Shaver lake Marina and Rented a boat and went fishing. I caught a bass so hubby was out fished. The only down side was our keyless entry stopped working and my husband and I got locked out of the house. There was no cell service and I had to walk 5min up hill to call Vacasa to let us in. But we were blessed to get an awesome agent on the phone who let us back in. She stayed on the phone with me all the way back to the house and my phone hung up on her , so I walked up the hill again and got a different agent who was also very nice. Once we got back in I seen that the awesome agent #1 left me a text massage inquiring on our well being, so I went back up the hill to call back and let them know we were in. My thighs needed the work out and for the wonderful weekend Vacasa gave us I would do it all over again and change nothing. We Loved it, great memories made and I definitely recommend the lovers lookout. Vacasa and awesome agent#1 and 2, thank you so much
