Walk or drive about half a mile to Dorabelle Cove for a swim - make sure to pack a picnic! If you're serious about sailing, Huntington Lake is about 25 miles away. China Peak's slopes draw ski enthusiasts during the winter, and it's about 19 miles from this home.

Fire up the grill and enjoy the cool mountain breeze out on the deck, part of which is actually built around one of the property's towering redwoods. And inside, the wood-burning stove will keep your evenings toasty.

A full kitchen, complete with a microwave, oven, stove, and fridge, sets the scene for your meals in. A TV, DVD player, and free WiFi are also provided. Heads up: 4x4 driving may be required during the winter.

The hose location, the house it self was clean , except Andre the beds, putty organized , leafy and noisy beds but other then that…was really nice 👍…!
Mary M. Oct 2021
The cabin was spacious and very close to Shaver Lake stores/restaurants. The bathrooms are updated but the rest of the cabin could use some updating. Great large wrap around deck in a quiet area.

Redwood Haven met all our requirements - clean, large enough to accommodate 3 couples, pet friendly, reasonable price and fairly well stocked. Here are a few suggestions for guests - if you plan to microwave, there are dishes that work, but not any microwave cookware (with lids), though there are lots of regular pots and pans. While there is a TV with DVD (Blu-Ray?), there is no cable or dish, so if you want to watch anything, either bring something to connect your laptop or bring some videos. For the host, since the place is dog friendly, I would suggest supplying a long-handled shovel to aid in picking up dog poop outside. There was a fair amount of dog droppings left by previous guests (which I picked up), but I think providing a shovel and suggesting guests clean-up before leaving would help. Also, while all the floors downstairs have been replaced, along with the upstairs bathroom, the loft and upstairs bedroom are carpeted. My dog was very interested in all the smells and spots in the carpet and before she could add to the spots, we decided that we could not stay upstairs with her, so we had to pick a downstairs room. It would be nice if eventually the upstairs carpeting was replaced with flooring, which would make it possible to keep the place cleaner. Outside of that, we had an awesome time and would consider staying there again, if we are ever in the area.
Manager response:
Janelle, thank you for your feedback! We appreciate you sharing your experience with us as we value your suggestions for improvement. We will pass your comments to our property manager, who will work with the homeowner to make any necessary updates. We truly look forward to hosting you again!

The cabin is really clean, and it’s really big. It comes with all your necessities so you don’t have to bring anything besides food! The one thing I didn’t like is the tv is really small, and it would be better if it was a smart TV! The wood of the deck need to be re- screwed, but other than that it’s a nice cabin!
Tracy H. Aug 2021
The location of this cabin is great, walking distance to town and restaurants.
Tina L. Aug 2021
We live it there. You can walk to town and the lake.
Lynn R. Jul 2021
This house was not clean when we arrived.Dishes were dirty, coffee and coffee grounds still in the coffee maker,countertops still had crumbs and even dried syrup. Bathroom also had toothpaste residue from previous visit. Called Vacasa and never heard back
Manager response:

Please know our guest services team is available 24 hours a day to assist should you have any concerns in the home. We will follow up with the appropriate parties regarding your experience to ensure any cleanliness oversights are sufficiently addressed.
Julianna H. May 2021
The cabin was in very nice location. It was walking distance to shops, restaurants and trials. The neighborhood was quiet and did not have a lot of traffic.
The cabin was small but had plenty of space and beds for the 8 of us that stayed. The bathrooms were updated and clean with plenty of towels.

The reason I gave this cabin 3 stars was because the beds were bad. All the beds were uncomfortable and seem very old. Two of the king beds caved in the middle. None of the adults slept well.
I was also very disappointed with how dirty the floor was. Our socks/feet were so black and covered in dirt from walking around the house.
There was also white dog hair all over the furniture, we noticed it as soon as we got there. (We did bring our dogs but they are both labradoodles and do not shed.)
Because everyone has to pay cleaning fees, you would think especially with Covid you would come to a pretty clean house!

We made the best of the negatives and still had a great time! We appreciate you letting us stay in your home. However, we will probably not stay here again.
Manager response:
Hello, Julianna! We sincerely apologize for the cleanliness concerns you encountered during your stay with us. Our team of housekeepers takes pride in their cleanliness standards, as it is a top priority service we provide for every guest prior to check-in. We are disappointed to see that this concern was not reported to us during your stay as we would have been happy to assist. We have passed your feedback along to our housekeeping staff so they are aware of your concerns. We hope to have the opportunity to impress you in the future!
Rosie E. Sep 2020
I really liked the easy check-in and check-out. Walking distance to lake and shops.
Cindy N. Aug 2020
Lots of room for family or friends with 3 king size beds and 3 twin beds. The deck goes all the way around the cabin so you can choose to set in the sunshine or cool off in the shade. The cabin was clean and comfortable.
Steve C. Jul 2020
Cabin is serviceable. A bit rundown. The deck is rundown and in need of repair and replacement. The downstairs bathroom sink drains very slow. No dishwasher. The TV reception is bad and the window blinds in the living room do not work and missing blades letting afternoon sun in and keeping airflow at a minimum because the blinds will not open. It is in a good location and the grill works well.
Manager response:
Hi, Steve! We appreciate your feedback and are glad to hear the location worked well for you. Maintenance will be handling the blinds and deck. Thank you for staying with us!
Michael M. Jul 2020
Close to town close to the lake reasonable and plenty of space for the family
Stephanie H. Jun 2020
Very roomy, pretty clean, and dog friendly. It was a nice stay. My father is in a wheelchair and although we had only a few steps to lift him into the cottage, it was nice for him as far as having a room and bathroom on the first floor for him. It's really hard trying to find a nice cabin that's handicapped accessible. This one worked out for us.
Brad M. Dec 2019
Room to spread out. Walking distance to town.
John J. Dec 2019
roomy house, warm, good location,good fireplace but needs a grate, lots of firewood, good wi-fi, well stocked kitchen,comfortable chairs and they accepted our dog.
Brenda G. Dec 2019
We booked this home for a few days of rest and relaxation in November. The location was great. Walking distance to town. The home was very clean. When I booked this home, I didn't realize it didn't have cable tv so we just played games at night. The front room was much colder than the bedrooms and the front left burner of the stove was not working. Other than that, we enjoyed our stay.
Manager response:
We have made the local staff aware of the burner and will see it is taken care of. Thank you!
Brisa M. Sep 2019
Great place. The house is very clean.
Tina L. Aug 2019
We love staying in this cabin each year. The upstairs space is so great for kids and all that they come with.
Ronald M. Jul 2019
Redwood Haven has a great location. It is near the little town and Shaver Lake. Only concern is there is no A/C and it got very warm upstairs. We would rent it again.
Eloisa S. Jun 2019
Everything was good especially the weather...thank you
Lynn R. May 2019
My husband and I brought our daughter, son in law and 2 grandsons (8 and 10) to this perfect get away. Very clean, appreciated the abundance of amenities and easy walk to down town and short walk to the lake. The neighbors clued us in on the short cuts to downtown and to the lake. The grandsons loved the upstairs loft with bedroom and bathroom, and especially the nook type beds. I slept upstairs with them and enjoyed the king size bed. There are two large bedrooms downstairs as well with the large bathroom. Plenty of room for us. We had a wonderful, memorable time.
Cheryl M. Jan 2019
We loved the location and neighborhood as well as the cabin itself. It had everything we needed/wanted and I recommend it for anyone who enjoys the woods.
Lindsay P. Jan 2019
Great, spacious and very clean cabin in a beautiful location. We went with another family and had plenty of space for the four adults and five kids. The cabin was very clean upon arrival with fresh linens and towels. Bring DVDs If you would like to watch movies as there is just a basic cable and there weren’t a lot of channels for young kids. Also bring dish towels from home since there is not a dishwasher and we quickly made it through the two dish towels that were there. Walking distance to restaurants and stores and a beautiful and quiet wooded street. We had a great time.
Patty R. Dec 2018
The house is homey and welcoming! The Vacasa staff are helpful. We look forward to vacationing here again!! Merry Christmas

Kenneth E. Sep 2018
We felt right at home with our dogs and enjoyed the lake and the little town. The wonderful lady in the Vacasa office (sorry I forgot her name) was so friendly and helpful and let us check in early. We will definitely be back.
Heriberto F. Aug 2018
I enjoyed my time here at redwood cabin. Its like being home. Its so relaxing, and a very nice place to go on vacation with the family. Also, stores are close by. The lake is beautiful!
Peter G. Jul 2018
Loved being able to walk into town to buy food. The house was spacious and we felt comfortable there. I would suggest a new bed in the loft area since the current mattress is sagging. I would also suggest new chairs in the living room they were old and one of them is stained.
Nellie J. Jul 2018
The home was perfect...thank you!!!
Denise F. Jul 2018
This is a great cabin for kids. Plenty of deck to sit out on and no carpet downstairs. Easy walk to pizza place and down to the lake. We stayed in summer but it looks like a great yard to make snowmen in the winter! We will be back!
Susette D. Jun 2018
We all enjoyed our stay kids had fun. Everything functioned and clean.
Lana W. Feb 2018
Enjoyed our stay will consider staying again👍
Thera M. Feb 2018
We have stayed at Redwood Haven for the past 3 years. We go every February for our snow trip for the grandsons. Even though there was no snow this year we still had a good time.
Tami D. Feb 2018
Our recent stay in the cabin at Shaver Lake was amazing, the kids were able to play in the snow just outside the cabin. While we spent time outside we were able to enjoy the view with the ceiling to floor windows . We were given early check in and offered a late check out . We have enjoyed these services for several years and will continue to do so in the future . Thanks again !
Griffin F. Jan 2018
This was a great place to stay and easy to find. If going in the winter, I would check to see if an electric heater is available for use in the upstairs bedroom. If not, bring one as it gets considerably colder than all the other rooms. The cabin was clean and well stocked with kitchen and cooking items! We would stay here again.
Tiffany B. Dec 2017
We have stayed at this cabin a few times in the past. Always very happy. Big beds, very clean. It was nice to see the bathrooms redone. Has all the amenities you would need. Plenty of cookware in the kitchen. The upstairs does get cold in the winter as there is no heater (that we could find) that goes up there. But that is not a big problem. Will definitely stay again. The only issue I have is I think the fee for linens, cleaning, deposit are a bit high. Adds several hundreds of dollars to your cost.
Tina . Aug 2017
We had a great time as always and the cabin was perfect.
Phyllis . Jul 2017
The maintenance staff was quick with our needs and very professional. We were very happy with the cabin and the treatment we received.
Tina . Aug 2016
Loved it, look forward to next years rental.
Chuck . Jul 2016
Easy to find, close to town, plenty of parking, & close to the lake. This is not a brand new luxury cabin and is a little worn but for a nice weekend in the mountains, it's great. The grand kids loved having their own beds in their mommy's room. Plenty or room, a good kitchen, etc. Great value for the $$$.
Don . Apr 2016
We have stayed at this property before and been very happy. This time we were concerned about the electrical work. We reported when we checked out that the outlet in kitchen to left of sink tripped the breaker twice with only the toaster plugged in. In addition, we found there is a lamp in the upstairs bathroom because the light fixture doesn't work. We have concerns about a lamp in the bathroom particularly with young children staying in the home. Everything else is fine and we love working with the rental office staff. Everyone is pleasant, knowledgeable and efficient. Thanks so much.
