Big Family Home - Epic Game Room, WiFi, & Gas Fireplace - Short Drive to Lake

Surrounded by the picturesque pines and offering room for up to 11 guests to unwind, this family-friendly Shaver Lake home is the perfect spot for your next retreat. With easy access to fun-filled alpine adventures, but just enough privacy to relax in the beauty of nature, you'll be able to dive into a wide array of vacation excursions.

Located under three miles from the lakeside spot of the Dorabelle Picnic spot you'll be able to fill your days with kayaking, fishing, and hiking through the tree-lined trails. When the snow starts to fall, make the quick 21-mile drive to the slopes at the China Peak Mountain Resort. Spend your days shredding the fresh powder, picking a snowball fight, and then warming up with a cup of hot cocoa at the cafe before heading home and parking in the four-car garage.

Connect to the free WiFi to find the perfect morning recipe to try out in the fully equipped kitchen. With plenty of seating, everyone will find a spot to enjoy their meal. Toss a load of laundry in the private washer/dryer and then take your cup of coffee out onto the deck to watch the trees sway in the breeze.

When it's cold out, you can cuddle up by the gas fireplace, then pop in a DVD the whole group will love for a fun-filled movie night. Or maybe schedule a fun Ping-Pong tournament with the Ping-Pong table available.

No matter what time of the season you visit, this Shaver Lake home is the perfect place to host your next group getaway!

My family and I stay at this rental and we had a great time. I would highly recommend this to anyone else.
Alondra C. Apr 2022
This place is super nice, cozy, and it was very clean when we arrived. The views are insane and there is a trail in the back that is beautiful. The place is much bigger than I originally thought from looking at the pictures. We had the maximum number of guests and there was plenty of room. Getting to the actual lake took about 7 minutes. We had a great time, would definitely come stay here again. Highly recommend.
Shelley K. Feb 2022
Lovely home! Large and spacious. Heater was blowing only cold air, contacted Vacasa, they responded immediately, the next morning, someone came out first thing in the morning, and fixed it.
Michael C. Jul 2021
Everything was great. Only two minor issues. There was a hornets nest near the garage on the beam that brought a lot of hornets flying around the house and the refrigerator wouldn’t cool enough to keep things from going bad. I called and they sent someone to fix it. After that it worked great! Besides that the house is spacious and beautiful.
Manager response:
Hello Michael, we are pleased you enjoyed your stay and that our local team was able to assist you with the issues you experienced. We hope to host you again soon!!

We had a wonderful time in this beautiful spacious home.

We absolutely loved this home! We have been to Shaver so many times either camping at Camp Edison or renting a different house every year. But I think we finally found the house that we want to make our traditional summer rental. I brought my family (spouse and 4 children), my in-laws, and my sister-in-law and her son. The house more than accommodated all of us. My cousin and his family rented a house 4 houses down from ours and we were able to get together every night for dinner and drinks. The location was PERFECT! A BEAUTIFUL neighborhood. A hiking trail is literally behind the house and we used it everyday to either hike or go down to my cousin's rental. There are even "Harry Potter" rooms (what my kids called them) upstairs. The kids loved playing hide-n-go-seek. It was a quick drive to town and an easy drive to the lake. We were able to get a wet-slip and store our boat at Sierra Marina. This house and its location was just perfect. I would only have 2 suggestions, but obviously these aren't complaints because we will definitely be booking this house next summer. The first would be the kitchen organization and lack of cups. My family and I LOVE to cook and nothing was organized. I felt like we were opening up a million cubbards everyday trying to find things. And there just were not enough cups for everyone. We had to go buy red solos at the market. The 2nd would be the game area upstairs. My kids had a blast playing up there but one of the main reasons we rented this house was for the shuffleboard table. We LOVE to play shuffleboard and I don't know what was wrong with it but the pucks would not slide. We were so disappointed. It obviously didn't ruin our trip, but I'm hoping by the next time we rent this house it will be fixed or replaced. And the chairs upstairs had many rips with the stuffing coming out and rips in the pool table felt. BUT, other than those few things this house was a dream. I recommend this house 110%.

Amazing home! Definitely would recommend to anyone!
Lorena A. May 2021
The location was great! This place is so beautiful and peaceful. My family loved it!
Erin B. Apr 2021
This was our first time leaving our house since the beginning of the pandemic and it’s only about 3 hours from where we live. It was so nice to get a change of scenery. We loved the game room and spent about six hours a day off and on playing billiards. However, we weren’t able to play all games because they were either broken or missing parts. So you can only play billiards and foosball/table soccer. Also bring your hair drying. I guess we thought it would be like a hotel and a hair dryer would be provided. We had to head down the mountain to buy one. The cabin is beautiful and survived the recent fires but the drive up the mountain is a bit scary now that the trees are gone and you can see the drop offs without guard rails as your husband drives the curves too fast. 😉 Needs a little sprucing up but it was perfect for our little get away and the lake is beautiful.

Loved the layout plenty of room for adults and kids had a good back yard snow play area
Blanca C. Dec 2020
First this home is very spacious and has extra bedding. But beds in the time hidden rooms need replacement. The restrooms are beautiful. Each restroom had four full-size bath towels and multiple hand towels. No problems with water. Rooms did have a few extra blankets. The game area was a big hit for our kids. And the adults. It Came in handy. The house is stocked with pots and pans plates, spoons, forks, cooking utensils. The outdoor is absolutely beautiful and peaceful.

Unfortunately this house needs some updating the couches are very old and dirty. They need a good deep cleaning or new couches. The rugs also need a deep cleaning or replacement. The fireplace is broken maintenance had to come out twice to fix get it turned on.

Besides those few things we really enjoyed our stay.
Manager response:
Hi, Blanca! We appreciate such a helpful review and are reaching out to the owner regarding your concerns and suggestions. Thank you!
Kristelle A. Aug 2020

Huong T. Mar 2020
The house itself is beautiful,my kids enjoyed the game room up stair, we made some memories, one thing I will recommend is deep clean those carpet, they are dirty and smell bad, kitchen full of plates and pots any side you want, we definitely will stay again . Thank you Vacasa

Charles J. Jan 2020
The Handel's cabin was wonderful and we had a great family outing. Space and layout was excellent.
Julie H. Jan 2020
We loved this home. Great accommodations for a large family. Wish the air hockey and shuffleboard were in working order, but otherwise everything was perfect.
Manager response:
We are so glad you enjoyed the home, Julie! Maintenance is working on the air hockey and shuffleboard, and we will have them removed as advertised amenities if they are not soon repaired. Thank you!
John W. Jan 2020
Stayed 4 nights and loved it. Grand kids had a great time playing pool, ping pong and playing in the snow. Forest right out side the back door.

Love this place our family had a great time!
Taylor M. Nov 2019
This was our 2nd time renting this cabin. My family just loves this place. We are already talking about when will be the next time to stay. There is plenty of room for everyone and it has all the necessary items needed. We love the upstairs game room area. Kitchen is big and had alot to offer when cooking. I definitely think this has become our Family favorite! Thank you to the Owners for opening up your beautiful Cabin.

Beautiful home and setting.
Kaitlin M. Sep 2019
This was such a nice cabin to stay in! We had a super relaxing weekend!
Robert L. Aug 2019
The cabin was very clean and well maintained. Great for a large party and the kid loved the many games that were available to play. Also large deck was great for lounging around. The fire pit was a big hit with everyone. Would do again.
Katie B. Jul 2019
This place looks just like the pictures! Plenty of room for a big family get together or just a weekend with friends. Kitchen was stocked with plenty of utensils, plenty of towels and linens, and tons of space to lounge both inside and out. If I had to change one thing it would be to update the bunks in the upstairs rooms but from what my family says all the other beds in the house were comfortable. We will for sure be booking this place again.
Gina N. Jun 2019
Everything was perfect. Absolutely loved it and will hopefully be back again next year.
Sonia D. Jun 2019
Just got home for our 4 day 3 night stay at Handel's Pride. This home is just like the pictures, maybe even better. It is located in a quiet and beautiful neighborhood with nice neighbors. We had an amazing time barbecuing and hanging out on the back patio area, there was also plenty of space for everyone. The kitchen is stocked with everything your family will need for meals. We have kids ages 4-20 years old including 3 teenagers who loved the game room upstairs. The home is only a few minutes from downtown Shaver and the lake.
The microwave wasn't working, there was a note that parts had been ordered but we were able to rewarm food on the stove and oven. We tried to turn on the air conditioner the last day we stayed, but I think it is programmed to not turn on because of the mostly cool weather up in Shaver. The upstairs was warm the last day and we stayed in early June which was in the high 90's. If you plan on staying late June, July or August I would plan for really warm weather just in case the AC is not programmed to be on. We were able to leave the doors open and windows to bring in a breeze but you have to make sure no critters come in.
We overall had a wonderful trip, it is well worth the price and we will definitely book with Handle's Pride in the future.

Joe S. May 2019
4 of us rented this cabin for a weekend fishing trip. Everyone had their own room and restroom, Lots of recreation opportunities in the cabin very nice facility. I don't know how many they would allow but you could have 20 people in this cabin.

marshawn p. Mar 2019
We stayed 3 night and loved it. This was by far one of the nicest home we have rented. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a place that had it all.
Barry B. Feb 2019
We wanted a snow weekend and we got it! The house was amazing with 2 story height windows with an amazing view of the winter wonderland! The roads were plowed as was the driveway. The large garage kept our 3 vehicles from the falling snow. The house was perfect for our large family...7 adults and 7 children (from 5 to 16). We had an wonderful 3 day snow adventure. The house would be fabulous without snow!
Sharon B. Feb 2019
Handels Pride offered an inviting grand room to sit by the fire and look at the snow through the many large windows. The top floor had everything we needed (pool table, foosball, air hockey and table to play games when we weren't outside. The beds and pillows were very comfortable. Everyone of us wanted to stay longer. We all had an amazing time. Theres only two things I would have liked to have had. Hooks in the bathroom to hang clothes on when showering and a shelf in master bedroom bathroom for toiletries. However, in spite of that, I loved the home. I will definitely get the home again. We had fun memories and I look forward to more at Handels Pride. The home reflects owners pride who care about their home and their guests. Thank you.
Sandra N. Jan 2019
Loved the floor plan and the game room upstairs. Everything you need was provided at cabin. Kitchen and snow necessities.
Guadalupe R. Jan 2019

Sasha D. Sep 2018
Such a beautiful home inside and out! We loved the outside patio and the game room up top that kept our children entertained. Also the trails in back of the home was a great little hike and such beautiful scenery. I will definitely consider this home again when I come to Shaver!
