As seen on House Hunters! Renovated cabin w/bocce & cornhole - walk to town/lake

Once featured on the hit HGTV show House Hunters (season 131, episode 4), this recently remodeled family cabin is beautifully tucked at the foot of towering evergreens in Shaver Lake. Here in the East Village - one of the town's most spacious, desirable, and private neighborhoods - you can spend your days out on the water and come home to play bocce and cornhole on the private 40-foot court. Light the gas grill and prepare dinner in the fresh mountain air, and spend your evenings gazing at the pristine night sky from the comfort of the front deck.

What's nearby:
This darling, 1,050-square-foot cabin is located on Aspen Road in the East Village of Shaver Lake, a five-minute stroll from the main village restaurants, bars, a market, cafes, and shops. The lakeshore and the Dorabelle Trailhead are within a 10-minute walk, allowing you to swim, fish, hike, and kayak with ease. If you do decide to use your car at all, you'll be a scenic 19-mile drive from the ski slopes of China Peak Mountain Resort. The natural wonders of Mono Hot Springs are 39 miles northeast, and the southern boundary of Yosemite National Park is 59 miles north.

Things to know:
Free WiFi
Full kitchen (without a dishwasher)

A 4x4 is not required in winter, but it is highly recommended (cars must have chains or snow tires at the very least)
Cell service can be quite poor in areas around Shaver Lake

You must be 25 years or older to rent this property.

This cute little cabin is perfect for our family of four. Quiet neighborhood walking distance to town. Second time we stayed, and we’ll definitely be back.

Cozy place and close to everything!
Celestino R. Jun 2022
We loved it. The only thing is a table was a little dusty. But other than that it was perfect. 5 stars.
Katie F. Jun 2022

First trip to Shaver Lake. Our boys 10, 7, and 4 really enjoyed our stay here. Bonus was we got to see snow. House is not big but felt big. We had friends of ours and their 10 yr old son stay w/ us and we fit comfortably. Close to stores and restaurants. Marina 3mi out. Cute museum about 2mi. Updated cabin. Definitely coming back.

Very nice space and comfortable. beds were comfortable. everything was clean without any smell of residual chemicals.
Kitchen was fine and updated as described. Couple of areas that needed attention was the window in one bedroom that would not open and then when I finally got it open would not lock again....so we had to hide some of our stuff. The stairs walking up to the cabin need to be addressed as someone is going to fall through them. But all in all nice cabin and would return as long as the window is fixed. I like to sleep with the window open and have access to air, that is a priority.

It was a great stay. The Cabin was very clean inside. The beds were comfortable. Washer and dryer were very helpful. There was Pots, pans, utensils, plates, bowls, mugs. Fridge, stove microwave all worked perfectly. Propane grill outside worked perfectly as well. Over all we had an amazing time. Family of 4.

Beautiful setting, cute town, super close to a couple beach locations to play with kids, cozy house. Only feedback that needs some attention is the BBQ outside didn’t work, we couldn’t find the cornhole bean bags to play, and wishing there was cooking sheet to bake food. But no problem, we were able to improvise. Kids loved the bunk beds!
Manager response:
Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us, Heather. We are glad you enjoyed this home and its location and we appreciate you bringing these issues to our attention. We have scheduled a service visit to ensure the grill is working properly, and we’ll be sure to add any missing game pieces or kitchen items needed. We hope you’ll return for another great stay!

Cabin was great perfect size for our family of 3.
Great location too, walking distance to town and close to lake.
Vanessa C. Mar 2021
This was our second stay. Not as enjoyable as the first time. We enjoy the interior and the space was clean except the dishes. The dishes were not put away and they were still dirty in the dish wash. We didn’t find them till the last day. In the rental agreement it does state to put the dish back, clean and put away. I wasn’t happy to wash all the dishes from the guest before just so we wouldn’t get blamed for it. We didn’t find the dishes till the last night.

Also the filter for the heater needed to be change and the alarm went off every five minutes. It was a roughy night. The maintenance guy came and change it the next day in the afternoon, but the whole house didn’t sleep that night and no one from the management called me back about reimbursement or some type of compensation for the night.

The third issue was the snow. The driveway wasn’t plowed and there was barley enough room for two cars to park and we had to shovel the snow off the deck to get the bbq and up the stairs just to get inside. It didn’t snow all day and we didn’t check in till 4 so they could have cleared a path for us. Luckily we found shovels and did it ourselves. Not sure if we will stay there again. Felt like a lot of work.
Manager response:
Thank you for staying with us, Vanessa. We are so sorry for the issues you encountered which prevented this from being a perfect stay. We apologize for the details missed by our housekeeping team and will pass along your concerns to ensure future cleans are completed to our standards. We also apologize for any inconvenience caused by the heater. The filter has now been changed and it is working properly. We are sorry to hear you arrived at a snow-filled driveway. While the main roads are plowed during a storm the private homes are not. Our housekeeping staff does their best to try to clear a path to the home when time allows. Thank you for letting us know there is room for improvement and we hope we have the opportunity to host you for a more comfortable stay.

The cabin was perfect for my family and very close to the lake, we will definitely book again. The propane bbq is still having issues but I read another review that mentioned it so I took lump charcoal for the side that allows it and it worked out.
Vanessa J. Aug 2020
The house was very cozy and clean. loved the open floor plan. Was easy to find and only a few minutes from stores and restaurants. Was a little warm but every room had a fan so that really helped. would definitely love to stay again.
Eric S. Jul 2020
Interior was well done, good lighting, nice bathrooms, nice flooring. Down sides are the propane BBQ didn’t work, and the kitchen didn’t have a good set of pots and pans (we cooked every night), and the dinner table was wobbly. The place needs new cookware.
Manager response:
Hi, Eric! We appreciate such helpful feedback. Maintenance will address the BBQ, and we will ask the homeowner about getting new pots and pans. Thank you!

Location is great. 15-30 mins walk to the lake depending on your physical condition. We’re very satisfied with how clean the house was when we arrived. We love the design since it is an open concept (personal preference). At first, we thought the fridge was not working since it was slow to cool our stuff. Overall, our experience was great!
Jesus C. Jun 2020
Really nice place and very tranquil atmosphere. I only had two issues: gas grill didn’t work. We were unaware that the other side of the grill was for charcoal , so we had to go find a store to buy charcoal. The other issue is that I found two hairs on the king size bed. I get gross out when I find hair from other people. Over all it was a good experience.
Manager response:
Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback, Jesus. We strive for a standard of excellence in ensuring the home is clean and accommodating for our guests. If there are any concerns or areas in need of additional attention, we hope to be notified so we can make sure any issues are addressed. We look forward to hosting you for a great stay in the future.

The home was beautiful, with everything we needed to have a great vacation! It was very clean, cozy and would definitely stay again!

The home was small and cozy perfect for a family trip up to the mountains. Very clean and very comfortable.
Emily J. Jan 2020
My family and I loved this cabin! It was very clean and inviting. The beds were very comfortable and the open floor plan made it very welcoming. I would definitely recommend this cabin and will be staying here again for sure!!:)

Very easy to book and everything went super smoothly. They were great about notifying us ahead of time about early check-ins and late check out availability. Location was super easy to find and on the plus side, we were literally down street from all the little stores and restaurants. Not to mention a good 1-2 minute drive from the lake. The house had everything that we needed; pots, pans, extra towels, sleds, shovels and so much more. They even provided Netflix and Disney Plus. The location isnt too far up so everyone still had great phone service. The only down side was the queen bed in one of the bedrooms was a bit uncomfortable but it was nothing a few extra pillows couldn't fix. Thank you for the great service! Will be booking again!
