This was my first time up at Shaver Lake, we drove out and spent a few days at this cabin. It was such an amazing place, very clean and very organized. Everything was very easy to find, we had no issues with neighbors. The place is big and had everything we needed. I would definitely look into staying at this place again. The check-in and check-out was easy as well.

Wonderful place! We had a great time in this huge and cozy home!
Sharon G. Jul 2021
Loved the size, location, and the beauty of the house. Just not taken care of the way I would a home. The management company did come the next day and fix some things. But still more...loud fans, no screen on some windows so you couldn't cool the rooms down at night, out door table was rough and splintery with bolts sticking up, master tub and one shower-the knobs just spinned around and around, Fan in loft game room wouldn't come on, only one pool stick/cue had an end on it to use. Old garbage not hauled away until we complained of the smell, top bunk bed had wrong kind of mattress so we couldn't use it. It was higher than the guard rail. Windows with views were filthy but they came and cleaned a few. Webs everywhere outside. Hopefully all that we had them do brought it up to a four out of five for next renter. I'd rent again if all was taken care that I listed in list I gave management. Such a shame.
Manager response:

Beautiful Mountain home with lots of space for our big family. We loved our stay in this home!
Ryan D. Jul 2021
Nestled in beautiful woods, this magnificent home was perfect for our mountain getaway. The living room, dining room, kitchen and loft are all amazing. The beds were comfortable and the rooms were spread out. Kids loved the game room and backyard. Highly recommended!
Andrea H. Jun 2021
The house is spacious and very well-appointed. Perfect house for a large family gathering. Close to town and the lake. We had a terrific stay!
Grace Y. Jun 2021
5 couples of us had a wonderful stay in this amazing house.
Spacious kitchen, huge dining room and family room, beautiful forest view thru the huge windows of kitchen and family room.
Near the Shaver lake, Dinkey Creek, McKinley Grove...., we really enjoyed the stay a lot!
Marilyn T. Jun 2021
This house was great for our multi generation family. This is our first time staying at Shaver Lake during warm weather and it was a great time in a great house. This house is perfect for winter and summer activities. It was clean and had amenities that made us feel welcome. The hot tub was in perfect condition and we enjoyed sitting on the back deck while some of us were soaking. My only suggestion is to have a recycling bin available. We felt bad throwing recyclables in the garbage. We'll bring one next time we stay, can't wait to rent this house again.
OMAR M. Apr 2021
We rented this cabin for a couple days and we had a great experience, enough rooms and bathrooms, everything was perfect. Fair price, enjoyed time and looking forward to go back to this cabin sometime in the future.
Vanessa V. Mar 2021
The home is absolutely beautiful. It is spacious, room for several families. I love that everyone was able to have their own bedroom and bathroom. The kitchen was large and beautifully decorated. The families that stayed here all loved this home. BUT we did come across some dislikes. The kitchen needs to be updated and restocked. Majority of pans are so worn we could not use them. The Teflon was peeling off of almost every single one. Spices outdated. Thankfully we came prepared with a lot of our own stuff.. Worst part, the sheets, bedsheets on most beds were not clean! And they have a note that says "do not wash sheets/blankets". Oh we washed all the blankets and sheets because they were disgusting. Vomit, blood, and God knows what else but no joke it was not fun and took a lot of time to wash those bed sheets and blankets. They provided a few detergent pods but we had to go to town to buy a big jug to get through all the sheet and blanket washing. Towels in restrooms were covered in thick dust. Those had to be washed also. This was frustrating also. All in all, my entire family had so much fun spending time together in Shaver. I hope the owners read this and make sure to take care of these issues for the next family that decides to stay there. It is a beautiful house, perfect I would say, with issues that can be fixed!
Manager response:
Hi, Vanessa! We have ordered new pots and pans and apologize for the housekeeping oversights. This will be discussed with our team. Thank you!
Marilyn T. Feb 2021
This home is very large and was a perfect size and layout for our 3-generation group. The furnishings and decor were lovely and the owners were very generous with the amenities. We love this house but it had not been cleaned when we arrived and we had to wait for the housecleaning team to clean before we could begin enjoying our stay. The spa was in terrible condition, someone came to drain and clean it right away but it didn't heat up soon enough for us to enjoy it.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Marilyn. We do apologize for the lack of cleanliness due to miscommunication on our part and appreciate your patience as worked to get everything ship-shape for you. This is not a normal Vacasa experience, so hopefully we have another chance to impress you!
Salomon R. Feb 2021
The house was awesome! The owners/vacasa went above and beyond providing for a great experience. There was a few downfalls however. When we first arrived someone had urinated in the snow right outside of the screen door upstairs. C'mon people! There was also vomit upstairs near the pool table I believe the clean up crew may have missed. Other than that, the pictures don't do justice the house/property are beautiful.
Manager response:
Hi, Salomon! We appreciate you staying with us and are so sorry if our housekeeping crew missed anything in preparing the home for you. We will follow-up with our team and hope to see you again!
Salina D. Feb 2021
This house was amazing. Propane was not filled, but they reimbursed us for it. Overall stay was perfect.
Chris M. Nov 2020
Our family had a great time. The large dining room table is amazing. It easy accommodated us for family meals. The jacuzzi was an added bonus! The only issue was we had planned to have a big BBQ on Sunday and to watch football. The propane tank was empty. I called VACASA and a representative informed me that I would receive a call back. I never did and we were deeply disappointed. Overall, we loved everything else about the cabin and one of the best we have had the privilege of staying in.
Sina S. Aug 2020
The lodge is perfect for an extended family stay. It's comfortable, has all the necessities and kid friendly
Rachael A. Jul 2020

Martin A. Jun 2020
Very comfortable and spacious very happy with our stay. Best cabin I’ve been by far.
Scott J. Jun 2020
Amazing home. Large enough for 4 families with plenty of space.
Casey C. Feb 2020
Our group of 13 had a wonderful time! We were able to kick our feet up and relax! The house and setting was beautiful. The only criticism I have is regarding supplies (paper towels, toilet paper, dish soap, aluminum foil, etc) at the house were in limited supply. Other than that our stay was perfect!
Chris L. Jan 2020
I loved the high ceilings! They wasn’t a lot of kitchen utensils, which made the trip less relaxing. But good location and comfortable home. Hot tub was not working and neither was bbq.
Manager response:
We apologize for the inconveniences you experienced while staying with us. We were happy to address the hot tub and BBQ for you during your stay, and we will do an inventory on the kitchen supplies. Thank you for staying with us!
Lusine A. Jan 2020
Huge home, beautiful, nicely decorated, clean, fun, amazing
CJ S. Jan 2020
This was a winter wonderland cabin/home. It was very accommodating from the moment you walked in the front door. There was not a lot of snow on this visit and no snowfall until we left, though there was still plenty on the ground to make snowman and a little sled hill. The house kitchen was amazing with a very large bar area to sit at while others were cooking or cleaning. There was a massive dining table that we all could sit at for meals and to play games. There was an additional table in and above living rooms if the kids and adults wanted to play separate games which we did. The loft offered a fuse ball, pool table , and shuffle board that offered hours of fun! This was by far our number 1 pick out of all of the homes we have stayed in!!!! There was plenty of bathrooms where 2 were like jack and Jill styles in between two bedrooms and the other were in suite. There was a fire pit🔥 deck outside of an upper bedroom that everyone enjoyed at one point watchOmg the kids play outside. There was a TV in every room except the dining area. The popcorn maker, wine refrigerator, and coca coal vending machine that actually all worked. I wish I had brought popcorn! Honestly you cannot go wrong from this house.

Beautiful home and surroundings, nicely, tastefully, comfortably appointed, loads of room for both togetherness and privacy. Three generations of adults had a very nice family vacation.
Nguyen An N. Jul 2019
The house was amazing (photos do not do it justice). Spacious, well decorated, well lit - lots of natural lighting in the common areas. The whole group loved the house and complimented how clean everything was and how there was enough seating areas for everyone/everywhere. Kitchen was stocked with everything we needed! We had a wonderful time, thank you!
Monica C. Jul 2019

The Lazy Bear Lodge was perfect for our getaway with friends. The cabin has plenty of room for sleeping but especially for hanging out in the living room and eating together. We loved it and hope to go back next year.
Aurora C. Jan 2018
Was very impressed with the home, very clean, lots of space, we didn't have to bring anything but food. Home was fully furnished down to the little things. The location was great for snowplay we didn't have to drive else were just walked out to the back door. Kid friendly. Very memorable relaxing weekend defiantly will be back!
Ly I. Jan 2018
Beautifully decorated home with ample living space. The large dining table worked perfectly for our group so we could all enjoy our meals together. Modern amenities like the Nest thermostats, pool table, board games, and ample sitting areas made us feel very comfortable. One of the best vacations homes I’ve ever stayed in and I’ve been using VRBO for over 15 years. Would highly recommend this home to anyone.
