Love this get-away. It is so quiet. Love hanging out on the patio and taking walks through the neighborhood. Quick and easy walk to great restaurants and coffee.

My friend and I stayed at this cabin for almost a week. Due to COVID we brought most of our food and the kitchen had what we needed to cook it (though my friend did bring her Instapot too!).
The shower was lovely, and the beds were comfortable. We were able to use our phones to project to the TV.
Multiple times we did need a thing or two and we had an easy walk to the store or other shops on the main street.
We did three hike/walks, went kayaking, and went to the shore/beach one day. Overall it was a very relaxing vacation!
When we did need to contact Vacasa for something we received a call back very quickly from Nick, which was very helpful given our situation.
The four of us (two adults and two kids) had a great time at the cabin! The cabin is very cute and compact: even though it's not big, everything fits nicely there. We also loved sitting on the decks and having lunch there. The cabin is a 5-minute drive from Shaver Lake and about 40 minute-drive from Huntington Lake.

A couple of warnings though:
- This cabin might not be good for small kids because the ladder to the loft is very steep, however there is a gate at the top.
- The stove is tricky, even though usage instructions are posted and I followed them :) My problem was that I brought a small dzezva to make my Turkish coffee in the mornings, bu because the dvezva is small and the stove does not turn on unless it detects weight, it would not turn on for my dzezva :) I had to make my coffee in a pot after all.
- There is only one parking spot at the bottom of the stairs leading to the cabin.
- We got lost trying to find the cabin every time we were returning to it, even though finding the main road from the cabin was not an issue. Maybe it's just my poor navigational skills though.
- Finally, the check out is at 10, and my kids had online classes from 9 till 10 and from 10 till 11. I tried to reach the property manager to move the check out time to at least 11, but alas never received a response. I tried doing it through the vacasa/vrbo messaging system, and I also tried texting to the property manager phone number.

Otherwise, we had a great stay!

Right in the heart of Shaver Lake! Perfect walking distance to several shops and restaurants. The place was really clean and offered all of your amenities.

Loved the location, perfect size for a weekend retreat with my spouse; beautifully remodeled stone work and modern feel in small kitchen; only downside-(management issue) deep cleaning of details, (high ceilings, corners, behind bed) not very good :(
Manager response:
We are happy that you enjoyed your stay. We are so sorry that the housekeeping did not measure up to Vacasa standards. We have informed the manager to review with the housekeeping teams. We hope we can host you again soon!

Nicely updated a-frame cabin. Just right for two.

Loved the home. Small. Perfect for a close family. Back patio fire and conversations were the best. It is super quiet, so bring something for some background noise if you cannot sleep in dead silence ..

Excellent location by Shaver Lake center. Clean and neat furnishing & amenities. A little difficult to find just having an exact location on Google Maps.
Will hope to come back and stay here again one day.
Manager response:
Hello Ana, Thank you for your review! We do hope to host you again in this home, so please note that we do include some turn-by-turn instructions in the check-in email to help our guests get to this home. We hope to host you again in the future!

We loved this sweet little cabin. My son especially loved the loft. The ladder is very steep though. If I had a daredevil kid I would have been nervous but he’s very careful and safe. It was clean and comfortable. The bed is really firm but we slept well, probably from all the hiking.

Shaver Lake is a cute little town and we loved the lake. We’re looking forward to coming back next year!

It was a great place to stay while enjoying our ski trip to China peak. Walking distance to all the places to eat without having to get back into out car and drive there.
