We had a great time and the house was everything we hoped it would be.
Cindy M. Sep 2021
The overall size was very nice the bedrooms and showers were clean but the kitchen was not as clean as I would’ve hoped. I had to wipe down all the counters and the stove. there were ants in the kitchen and all the pots and pans had a greasy residue on the outside of them. When some water dripped on the floor from my glass I went to wipe it up and the floors were absolutely filthy. The steps going up to the house should be checked as I believe the wood is rotting on some of the steps. There were several lights that had burnt out bulbs. The bed in the master bedroom was probably the hardest bed I’ve ever slept in in my life. I ended up sleeping on the couch the second night which was much more comfortable. For the amount that is being charged to rent this home, the owner needs to give it a little TLC to make it worth what they are charging.

The entire city is lovely, this place is very organized and awesome for 8 to 10 guests. Our kids loved it. The water sports, horse riding, bike trails and hiking all was within 10 min drive from this location.
Brian K. Jul 2021
The house was great; more than enough room for our family. Good amenities; especially the game room. Nice location-- quiet neighborhood just a short drive to town. Would definitely stay again.

Great family vacation cabin. Close to Shaver town and lake. Wonderful quiet area, nice morning walks, great scenery. Lots of space.
Christine C. Apr 2021
Everything was great. This house is beautiful. We had all the amenities we needed. I read some of the reviews and everything people had complained about did not affect us because it was corrected or didn't affect us. For example We did not need the AC during our stay so I don't know if that worked. At the bottom of the inside staircase the small railing was very loose/ woobly so we tried our best not to use it. The only disappointment was we were not allowed to have campfire in the pit out back. Even though it didnt say anything in the any of the pre stay communication, We followed the rules and didn't have one.
Everything else was great. Location was nice.
Autumn B. Apr 2021
The house is in a nice location, great for entertaining. The house does need some TLC, wasn't the cleanest and had some repair needs.
Lacinda M. Jul 2020
What a great place to relax on the beautiful deck. The game room was perfect to keep the teenagers busy and give them their space. It was close enough to town to quickly get supplies.
Alex A. Jul 2020
We loved Shaver Lake! The cabin was great too, but it just had a few issues we weren’t too happy with. The first issue was the Hand rail to Go upstairs was very loose. Swinging at least 2 inches in either direction. Also, the AC unit was not working at all all weekend. The good thing was that we were at the lake most of the day and would be back at the cabin in the evening when it would start cooling down, so we would just crack open the windows and doors. Also, the fridge did not start cooling until the 2nd day. I guess they must’ve had it off and turned it back on right before we arrived? We had a few coolers with ice that we brought along, so we were fine until the fridge got down to the needed temperature. Upstairs couch cannot be converted into a bed because the frame was broken. Also, the upstairs coffee table also had a broken leg. All in all, it was still a great trip and none of those issues ruined it for us. We would definitely stay here again, but just wanted to point these things out so that they can be fixed in case someone stays here that might have an issue with any of them. Thanks again for letting us stay here!!

Wonderful set up for large family. Beautiful location and home
JACK B. Feb 2020
My family and I enjoyed our holiday weekend at Indian Rock Retreat. I feel like it should be called Bear Retreat with all the bear decore. We loved this cabin and will return again next winter. The location and neighborhood are wonderful. A big open home with plenty of space for the whole family to spread out and have fun. Played some pool up in the loft which is a nice touch. There were a few minor issues which prevented me from rating as 5 stars. The upstairs can get a little warm compared to the rest of the house, so just plan to use the included fans up there. Also some basic cooking spices like salt and pepper would be appreciated. It’s hard to have to pack every little ingredient to cook a simple meal up there. Some of the tv remotes had dead batteries. Again, not a big deal but a nuisance to deal with. Overall it’s s great place to vacation!
Michael P. Feb 2020
Stayed a weekend with family. In a beautiful location, close to town and the house is wonderful for family gatherings. We will definitely stay again!
Esmeralda R. Feb 2020

Juli H. Oct 2019
We had a great time at the Indian Rock Retreat. It had plenty of room for our family inside and out on the deck. It was very clean and met all of our needs.
sania k. Sep 2019
I didnt like the stairs. But great house.
Donna M. Sep 2019
House was amazing
Judy S. Aug 2019
We loved the size of this cabin and each couple had their own private space. Then there was the game room to play games in the evening. The patio and kitchen area was so spacious, we had great family time together! We rented a pontoon boat and was able to really see what Shaver Lake is all about...a Must Do!
Went for a hike to Rancheria Falls, a fairly easy hike for most. Thank you!
Pam D. Aug 2019
This cabin is beautiful and has a nice layout for multiple families. It is roomy with a large deck totally fenced which was great for kids and dogs.
Dave E. Jul 2019
Indian Rock Retreat was a beautiful and relaxing getaway for our two-family trip. The home was well stocked with supplies and had lots of nice touches. My only suggestion to the management company would be to supply BBQ tongs.
Manager response:
We are so glad to hear you enjoyed your stay, Dave! We appreciate your feedback as we always welcome any suggestions that can make the in-home experience for our guests a great one. We look forward to hosting you again soon!
Charles P. Jul 2019
This home is comfortable and well kept. Appreciated the choice of inside dining or on the deck. The location is very good for access to the village. We did have a couple of minor complaints about storage. The master bedroom is small and without storage to hang clothes. The garage is not available to guests which has always been a place to store gear during our stay in other houses.
Manager response:
Hello Charles, Thank you for your review. At this time, the master bedroom closet and garage are for owner use only, and we thank you for respecting the wishes of the owner. We do hope to host you again in the future.
Amber t. Jun 2019
The house is great! Kiddos loved the pool table and the outdoor space. Top notch house and location!
Bianca M. Jun 2019
I enjoyed the entire stay. Quiet and peaceful neighborhood. The house was gorgeous and I loved how it was open and still felt cozy. Only downside was the fridge wasn’t getting cold and we had food for the whole weekend to store.
Manager response:
We are glad you enjoyed your stay! The fridge is working properly and we are sorry for any inconvenience. We hope to host you again in the future!
nicole s. Apr 2019
Beautiful cabin home that is very roomy. Items are a little sparse as expected for a rental. We really appreciate the "pet-friendly" aspect. We would definitely rent again.
Jesus R. Mar 2019
This is the best vacation home I have rented. It has great view, lots of backyard and side yard space, small creek running in the back, its spacious, open concept, four bedroom with two of them having their own bathroom, has a pool table, poker table, lots of TVs, lots of board games, movies, I will definitely rent again!
Jesus O. Feb 2019
Our first trip to shaver lake we loved the cabin it was roomy and the upstairs loft with pool table was entertaining. The open space next to the house was perfect for sledding with the kids and China Peaks wasn’t to far away. Will defiantly consider this home for future trips.
Tim S. Feb 2019
Floor plan is great for two families. Two master bedrooms is good plus two bedrooms for different gender kiddos. More trash bags, cooking utensils and with the amount of snow we received it was I’m possible to use bbq. 4’ of snow on the deck. Would have been nice to had that somewhat cleared so we could open that deck door. All in all, one of the nicer places we’ve stayed at!
Jamie B. Jan 2019
Very nice and spacious. Updated cabin feels cozy and warm. We are definitely booking this place again!
Heather S. Jan 2019
Very nice and clean home that easily accommodated 8 people. Great neighborhood for walks and a quick drive to Shaver and China Peak.
