Log-style home with spacious deck, close to China Peak Mountain
Families, friends, and colleagues can all enjoy some well-earned peace and quiet with a stay in this stunning Shaver Lake home! This spacious abode for 12 balances the natural peace and quiet of the area with a great selection of activities for visitors year-round! This getaway lies in a secluded cul-de-sac fifteen miles north of Shaver Lake Village. The town's shops and restaurants are only moments away when you need them, but you'll be surrounded by swaying trees and stunning views of the forest from the decks on every level. There's space enough in this home for everyone to get nice and comfy. Find a recipe in one of the cookbooks to try in the well-equipped kitchen. You can dine indoors or bring your food out to the deck for some fresh mountain air. When night falls, gather around the wood stove and challenge everyone at one of the many board games available before heading off for a good night's sleep.
Visiting in the summer, make sure to stop by Shaver Lake (15 miles away) for some fishing, swimming, water sports, or simply picnicking on the shore. You can also head over to Huntington Lake (only 7.2 miles away). If you're into off-roading, Red Mountain OHV trailhead is less than one mile from the cabin. China Peak Mountain Resort is open for mountain biking in the summer and also has become a popular wedding venue for summertime weddings! Mono Hot Springs is 26 miles away and is home to over a dozen natural mineral hot springs along the San Joaquin River. There are plenty of nearby hiking trails. Visiting in the winter? Head over to China Peak Mountain Ski Resort, only 6 miles away, where you can enjoy the pristine ski trails! Visit one of several nearby Sno-Park areas to enjoy sledding with the family. The Red Mountain OHV trails are a popular destination for snowmobilers in the winter.

This cabin had everything, good neighbors, all the amenities, lots to look at inside, 4th story loft for a huge family with kids. Nice 2nd story quiet 3 bedroom area, master has a 2 person tub or should i say hot tub. 3rd story kitchen, fully equipped! We took advantage of the movie collection, Chess and poker tables while there. Plus it is the first 3 rights to China Peak for skiing, 15 minutes with chains on. Wear chains 2023 or you'll be skiing in your 4x4 but even 2wd made it with chains/cables.

The home is extraordinary. The kitschy design and decor appealed to me very much. The bathrooms were stocked with crisp white towels and the basic shampoo and conditioner. Our favorite part was the vast DVD collection. The kids enjoyed that very much. We also appreciated the baby gates for the stairs. Now for the negatives. I hate to emphasize these, however I think it will help others make accurate decisions for themselves and their families. The boardgames were very disheveled, and were either broken or had missing pieces. The kitchen was the biggest disappointment for us. There were ziplock bags in drawers that were either empty (already used) or half full of items such as sugar, coffee grounds, etc. The pans were all worn. The plates were chipped and not organized. And the shelves and drawers were dirty with crumbs and stains.
We appreciate you staying with us, Erin. The property manager is checking, the boardgames, drawers, and kitchen inventory so we can ensure everything is addressed. Thank you for bringing these things to our attention. We hope to see you again!

Location is great for China Peak
Thank you for your review, Beth. We're so happy to hear you enjoyed the wonderful location of this home! We have passed your feedback to our local manager and look forward to hosting you for another great stay in the future!

Positives: The cabin is beautiful inside. A lot of steps and stairs but worth it. It might not be ideal for elderly or little little ones. Bath tubs were deep and relaxing. Having 3 bathrooms was very helpful. The heater kept the whole cabin warm. There are many lights and outlets for convenience. We spent most of our time playing games, watching dvds, and playing poker while indoors. We were a short way to fishing and hiking. The kitchen was well stocked.
Negatives: First things first, we had no internet connection at all. There were many phones in the house but they only worked for emergency calls. We had to drive down about 15mins to check on family members.
2nd, we were greeted with a sign that the oven was out of order for our Thanksgiving week vacation. We were not notified prior.
There is a strong smell of smoke in the air, it didn't bother most of us but it is something to keep in mind.
We only had a DVD player and one tv. Many movies and books but only one kids movie so you might want to bring extras.
Hi, Jenny! Thank you for letting us know about your experience. We apologize if you were expecting internet; it is not an advertised amenity. We're also very sorry the oven was out at such an inopportune time. We understand what a frustration that must have been and hope the compensation provided helps alleviate some of your frustration. Hopefully we'll see you again sometime!

Plenty of space indoors and outdoors!

The location was amazing. Plenty of space to wind down the evening. The cell booster made keeping in touch with the outside world easy. It's still spotty but your on a getaway. My only complaint is the bedding it was scratchy and the pillows were not very good. The ceiling fan squeaked. I'd love to see electric vehicle charging available but not a necessity. Lots of games for the family to play. Zero young children movies in their movie catalog. If they had better bedding I'd definitely give 5 stars.

Place is huge and well appointed. Super clean too!
Taran B.Mar 2021
Love the Tamarack neighborhood. Great location close to both lakes as well as China Peak. Private and quiet. The house is large and comfortable for a family gathering.
Area was hit hard by the fires last summer. Still some challenges, but it's coming back strong.

There's nothing about this cabin not to love! A true Mountain Paradise! Bathrooms and kitchen were spotless. Bedrooms and linens were perfect, couldn't have been better. Everything is easily accessible, Huntington Lake and Shaver Lake are just minutes away. I'm planning on another trip in December, hopefully we can! Can't wait to book it again. Thanks Vacasa for the Awesome memories, with more still to come.

We loved everything about this home. It was a 10, couldn't have asked for more.
Karina L.Jun 2020
This was a big, beautiful, peaceful place! Very clean, had everything we needed, and accommodated three families perfectly. Be prepared to walk up and down stairs multiple times daily.
Ron L.Mar 2020
We really enjoyed our stay. Thank you.
Sarah C.Jan 2020
A perfect house for our three families to enjoy a winter weekend. Excellent attention to detail throughout the house! The only thing missing was Wifi but we actually appreciated really stealing away. The house is well appointed, especially the kitchen, and easily accommodated our group of 10. We all walked out on our last morning saying we can't wait to come back!
Jason M.Oct 2019
It is a wonderful cabin. Great lay out and plenty of space. Lots of stairs, need to be in good shape at that altitude. It is very comfortable and well furnished home. However there were a few issues with our stay. First, there is no cell service in this area, and no working land line or internet at the house which was expected, but the key box code I was given was wrong, so I had to drive to the motor lodge down the road to borrow a phone to call Vacasa for the correct code. The only other problem we had was on our final morning we woke up to no heat, no hot water and a gas stove that would not work. The issue resolved itself when the temperature rose outside. I suspect that the propane regulator was frozen or stuck from the freezing temperature outside the night before. With no way of contacting Vacasa at the house or near by this could be a problem for some.
Jason, we are so happy to hear you enjoyed the cabin! Thank you so much for taking the time to share your feedback with us. We will be sure to pass your comments regarding phone service along to our local manager who will work with our homeowner to make necessary upgrades. We look forward to hosting you again!

This was a perfect get away with family. Only thing I was not impressed with was when we wanted to extend the stay another day they wanted to charge us processing fees again.
Other than that customer service was great. Fully stocked. Beautiful.
