This condo was perfect. Even though I brought everything I needed to use, the cabin was stocked with a whole lot incase I forgot something. The place was as clean as it could be for a cabin. The neighborhood was quiet and a safe place to park the car overnight. The only thing that was difficult was getting in through the gate at first but luckily a resident came in from behind and opened the gate.

Once we were able to enter the gated condo complex our stay was fantastic. The property was stocked with everything we needed for a relaxing stay. Including snacks which my kids loved.
Benjamin L. Feb 2022
This place was really clean.
Rebecca B. Jan 2022
We really enjoyed this place. It was clean, easy to access and convenient. We would love staying here again!
John M. Jan 2022
My wife and two teenagers just stayed there. Loved it. Nice kitchen with appropriate pans and dishes, etc. It’s small but plenty of room for all of us. Very clean and tidy. Second double bed is in the loft with nice bathroom.
The process for reservation, day of arrival, questions, and check-out were very user friendly.
Will definitely go back.
Lisa B. Dec 2021
The cabin was cozy for a family of 2 adults and 2 kids. All-though I would not recommend kids under 5 years old as the stairs up to the second bed in the loft are very steep and narrow. I was afraid my 7 and 8 yo would wake up in the middle of the night and fall thankfully they got a good workout in the snow and slept through the night. We went up during the years to date, heaviest snow fall. The roads on the weekend were plowed enough for us to drive into town 5 minutes away, our departure day was delayed a day due to the road conditions. The walkways were maintained well throughout the condo walkway areas. Thank you to the gentleman who we seen daily out in the snow walking through clearing the walkways.
It stayed warm with the gas fireplace which was nice because temperatures dropped to 20 degrees on one night and hovered around 35 most days. Overall a great cabin experience besides the local office who thought we should drive down the hill even though the CHP recommended no travel in the area. Thankfully customer service was great in accommodating our stay.

Pluses:
Its a nice condo, good sitting area and great 2 queen beds. Loved gas fireplace. Big deck for summer.
Minuses: kitchen cabinets are past due to replace it. Main TV is hard to get to work, need to use own Netflix account. Also wifi probably slow since TV sometimes clocking or needed reset. In bedrooms doesn't even work at all, asking IP network and other stuff what average renter doesn't know.
I would return but maybe summer for pool, deck etc.
Manager response:
Hi, Erich! Thank you for staying with us. WiFi can be slow in the area, but TV instructions are provided in the cabin to assist with viewing. We hope you do come again in the summer!
Cynthia P. Aug 2021
It was very nice getaway. Small but comfortable. Awesome deck to hang out on. The only complaint I have is I could of got the email with codes a day earlier. Do to the time I needed for travel I didn’t get it in time to help me. The pool in the condos needs repair too.

Location and semi-secluded/private area.
Amy P. Jun 2021
The web sight description and pictures were right on about this place. You get exactly what you are expecting to get. The condo was clean, quaint and roomy enough for a family. The beds were comfortable. It was so nice to have a big porch. This is to no fault of the place, but I would have rather the bunk beds be up in the loft and stick all kids up there. The kids loved being in the loft. I loved that this place was afforable for my family to enjoy a nice get a way.
Karen H. May 2021
There are extremely high levels of asbestos in the water. This is posted on the fridge, but not advised at any stage before arrival.

On arrival, check-in was a mess. Finally got in to discover the bathrooms were not fully cleaned and the dishwasher was full of dirty dishes! Great way to start a vacation: cleaning a stranger's mess. Check-out was also a mess.

Property is unresponsive to those seeking assistance.

It's a shame--this is a really cute place.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Karen. We apologize for the experience you had. The entire community has just had new water pipes installed correcting the asbestos issues. We will discuss the cleanliness oversights with our housekeeping staff. Hopefully you'll provide us with another opportunity to impress you.
Marsha C. May 2021
We enjoyed the condo! Nicely decorated and very relaxing!
Ruben O. Mar 2021
Condo in itself was cozy and all amenities were their except fire wood. We were there Thursday and Friday and kids missed class due to WiFi not working. Hard to get a hold of staff but noticed they have an office which I was able to express my concerns. I gave it a 3 star due to inconvenience and corporate was to call me or email me but nothing yet.
Linda K. Aug 2020
cozy condo.
Melissa R. Jun 2020
I love the location. Great and convenient right off the street for convenience. Really enjoyed the time we spent here.
Jackleen C. Jun 2020
We loved this place, had everything we needed. Pluses: Plently of sleeping space. It was cozy and quite. Stocked with tolietries. Very clean inside. Minuses: Water pressure in the kitchen was very low, dishwasher was flooded and the screen door was broken. Almost every outlet the plugs would fall out, but nothing was a deal breaker for us. We would definitely return for another stay! Thanks!
Yessica S. Jun 2020
Enjoyed our stay, it was cozy and everything we needed. The views were great. Loved the gated community and the quietness of the place . Did have to clean up outside to enjoy the balcony but it’s ok. It was what the kind of atmosphere we needed
Becky R. Feb 2020
We enjoyed our stay. The condo was cute and clean. The kids loved sleeping in the loft with their own bathroom. It was close to town and not too far from skiing. The gated community was nicely kept. Because it’s winter we didn’t use the balcony but it was huge and would be nice in the summer months.
A few things that didn’t work include: the dishwasher, jets in jacuzzi, the lights above the bar, and one kitchen chair is wobbly.
Overall, we had a great time.
Manager response:
Thank you for sharing your feedback, Becky. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. We apologize for maintenance issues that occurred during your stay, and we are happy to report that the dishwasher and jacuzzi jets are working properly, we have ordered replacement lights for above the bar, and the chairs have been tightened. We hope to have another chance to impress you in the future!

Cabin was cozy. Area was beautiful. There wasn't a lot of other people. Had some issues with the cabin, but overall, great trip.
Andre L. Nov 2019
Beautiful setup here with Zero issues with amenities. Beds and Entertainment are the main negatives although everything else is clean and extremely cozy
Patricia A. Oct 2019
This is my second time at this cabin and will now be my go to cabin. Location is good the place is quiet plenty of trees. Love the fireplace great value for the money... oh and love the big patio area.
DEREK M. Sep 2019
ideal property and great gated area.
Monica S. Aug 2019
We really enjoyed our stay at Snugglers Inn. The location is perfect, right before stores, restaurants and a few minutes from the lake. We stayed during the week and it was so quiet we seriously thought we were the only ones there. If you plan on partying and getting loud this may not be the place for you. The cabin itself is nice. They really do have everything you may need in the kitchen, just bring your food. Plenty of blankets and towels. The pool and hot tub were so nice to relax in at the end of the day. The only thing as others have said the grill needs to be upgraded (FYI-it’s electric). Netflix in the living room didn’t work, so we just enjoyed music on their Bluetooth stereo. Overall a good relaxing place to stay.
Kathy S. Jul 2019
great location, close to town and lake, cozy atmosphere, nice patio porch. only negative was the patio was not clean, bird feces everywhere. maintenance came next day and powered wash deck. Netflix didn't work in family room, maintenance couldn't fix. great stay, relaxing, loved it
Manager response:
We are glad to see you enjoyed your stay, Kathy! We have taken care of the bird issue and are actively investigating the Netflix situation. We hope to see you again!
ADRIAN B. Jun 2019

Ryan A. Oct 2018
The place had everything we needed, the kitchen was well stocked, plenty of beds and bedding, had WiFi but it is slow, would definitely recommend and book again.
Diane V. Oct 2018
Had just enough room for 4 adults & was quite clean. Had everything we needed to cook & bbq, which made it easy! Cute decor too. Only downside i found was the beds. They were a little uncomfortable.
James R. Aug 2018
Very relaxing will definitely return
Linda K. Aug 2018
We loved the layout of condo with the loft. Clean & comfortable.
Anthony F. Jun 2018
We enjoyed our stay at the condo. Great location and area. Very quite and no one disturb us. The beds need to be replaced, but overall the condo was clean. Could use a few more items in the kitchen. Perfect location for a small family that wants to spend a quite time.
Lucy B. May 2018

Emily J. Mar 2018
We had the best time in Shaver! Snugglers Inn was perfect!! Great location and very clean. We can't wait to come back this Summer!
Joan M. Jan 2018
Clean, clean,clean. Great value and great location. Highly recommend.
Jim C. Jan 2018
We enjoyed Shave Lake area very much - The Trading Post and Shaver Pizza restaurants. China Peak is great to explore as well as Rancheria Falls.

Our daughter was nearly crushed by a light fixture that fell out of the kitchen ceiling. She was very scared and it was a bit traumatic to think how narrowly we missed a massive injury - 60 minutes from the nearest emergency room.

We really received 0 finality in regards to the light fixture that fell out of the ceiling. We barely received an apology - and are left to assume that the next people who use this property will have a safe fixture installed. We find it odd that this incident was basically ignored. We were left with a mess, a scared little girl, and a kitchen without a light. We were essentially asked to clean it up, and then sent this questionnaire.

There was a note to use a much firewood as we needed and a good description on how to use the fireplace. There was no wood - we had to find it under the house and load the wood dock on the deck. It would have helped if somebody told us where the wood was or better yet - stocked the wood dock.

I think follow up on a near death experiences would be appreciated.
Manager response:
We are incredibly sorry to see this guest did not feel taken care of during such a frightening incident. This was an accident caused by rotted drywall that no one could have anticipated. The owner does have plans to install new lighting in the kitchen. We have contacted this guest again to apologize once more and give them our assurances that this matter will be fully resolved in the near future.

Snow melt and rain was not managed well on paths to the condo. Small water bars could funnel water off path & steps. I could not find the fire wood (not a real problem -saved me some work making a fire) I would recommend your service and the condo.
Steven . Sep 2016
The condos were great, the area was super quite, nice and friendly neighbors(the property owners living there), great location. It was secluded but convenient to get to town. I would highly recommend the Snugglers Inn.
