The cabin was a one bedroom and fairly clean. Good for one couple although it had 2 double beds. The bedroom was upstairs and both beds were in the same room. Everything else was in the ground floor. Love seat no couch and one other chair.

This was a perfect little cabin for a few day getaway for me and my husband. The cabin was clean, comfortable and had everything we needed. It isn’t as secluded as we had originally hoped - it’s in a neighborhood of cabins - but when we went during the weekdays in March, none of the other cabins were being used so we were literally the only ones in the neighborhood. It was so peaceful and quiet. Shaver Lake is a beautiful community with friendly people and lots of outdoor activity options. FYI - dining options are limited in Shaver Lake so plan for your meals, or be ok with burgers and sandwiches. There are a couple of local small markets, but it would be best to plan ahead. We chose fishing at Shaver Lake and relaxing at the cabin. A perfect little getaway.
The booking process was easy, the emailed instructions were clear and we had no issues that required us to have to reach out to the host. Great experience!

We loved the loft. A little weird there are 2 beds up there facing each other. It was just 2 of us so it was perfect. The heater was great, kitchen fully stocked, driveway was cleared even though it was snowing when we got there. No complaints at all.

Nice cabin main level is very dark, need more lighting, upstairs has bright lights which aren't needed as sleeping area. Very warm cabin very well equiped for cooking.

Loved the back deck. Woke up to unexpected snow.
Manager response:

Perfect little cabin for 2 people. Pretty dim lighting inside at night, but could easily be fixed with some extra lamps/bulbs. House location was excellent, walkable distance to Shaver lake and restaurants in town. Definitely recommend.
Elsa C. Jul 2021
The cabin was perfect for a little getaway. The beds were comfortable, kitchen was well stocked, plenty of clean towels. There is a TV but no service. But can easily use a tablet to watch TV. There is also a DVD player and a few movies. The shower head works great but replacing it with one that could be angled better would help. One window in bedroom could use a curtain. The backyard deck was great to just relax and enjoy the beautiful trees. Overall the cabin was quaint and the neighborhood was quiet. Would definitely return!
Manager response:

We hope to host you for another pleasant stay in the future!

We rented this cabin over the 4th of July weekend and had a great time. It's very charming and has a lot of character. The back porch is fabulous and has a really nice grill. The kitchen has all the basic necessities needed to cook a meal. We did try to replace the kitchen knife since it was super dull but the grocery store was sold out. The wifi worked great but there is no cable TV. Luckily, we had our tablet and a cord so we were able to watch streaming movies and TV. There is a DVD player but not many DVDs to choose from. The beds were comfortable; no complaints there! Only two things need attention, the showerhead could use an upgrade and one of the windows in the loft area could use a curtain. Other than that it was a great stay!

We loved our week long stay at this cabin. Everything within the cabin to the beautiful look from the back porch was perfect. We were sad to leave. Thanks for the memories and will definitely be staying here again.

It’s a nice little cabin. It had everything we needed full kitchen, extra towels , board games, DVDs and portable fans . Cons we couldn’t get the ac in the living room to work and it needs a new shower head . I think the shower head was installed wrong it only tilts upward .
Andrea C. May 2021
Rustic, clean, great location, quiet neighborhood
Jasmine R. May 2021
In the words of my daughter, "This is exactly the kind of cabin I've always wanted to stay in." Precisely the kind of getaway our family needed after a series of setbacks. Very quiet and cozy with all the comforts of home.
Seth f. May 2021
This was a very nice stay. Roomy cabin. Very nice neighbors. Close to everything. Cabin was outfitted very well. Would rent again.
Dominic G. Mar 2021
PROS: We were very satisfied with this cabin. It fit me, my wife and two kids 10 and 12. It was the perfect size for what we needed. Everything worked fine. Casa made sure to have the heater running before we got there so the cabin stayed at the perfect tempeature the whole stay. It was a shirt walk downtown. And a 20 minute drive from Tamarack Snow Park.

Cons: My biggest con was having to spend 2 hrs shoveling my car out of the icy drive way. So if you rent this cabin either put you're snow chains on first or clear the drive way of any snow.
Second con was that internet was promised but not working while we were there. We counted on it for our daughters school login but we're disappointed it wasn't available. Vacasa was not available directly so we did without.

Overall I still give them a 5 stars because of the location and cabin having everything we wanted.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Dominic. The property manager is looking into internet at this home to ensure everything is properly listed and provided. We hope to see you again!

Perfect little cabin for our family of 3 and the dog. We especially enjoyed sledding down the hill right next to the cabin. It was nice to find sledding discs provided. It's a really short walk to town/restaurants, easy enough for our toddler to walk on her own. The cabin is definitely rustic and for us that was part of the fun. The heater works really well. A curtain over the window upstairs would be my only recommendation. Thanks for a great and memorable stay!

This cabin had all we needed to make our little getaway relaxing and enjoyable clean comfortable away from home definitely recommend it for any family of 4 with kids few min away from the lake as well we loved the natural look of the cabin made it feel like a little cottage house loved it definitely would stay again

This was our first Vacasa rental and it did not disappoint! The cabin was very clean when we arrived and just big enough for my husband, me, and our three dogs. Everything is very close by. Decent DVD collection. Very nice balcony. All the appliances worked. Vacasa made it very easy to check in and check out. Would highly recommend this rental. As someone said, this isn’t a place with all the bells and whistles but it was perfect for us.

Only recommendations: install a new shower head and shower curtain. The shower head was very misty and the water sprayed all over the place. The shower curtain was a little difficult to manage.

The TV and DVD remotes weren’t working (I am not the most technologically savvy person tho! So it could have been me! Lol).

Thanks, Vacasa! It was a great weekend away!
Manager response:
Hi, Megan! We are so glad you had a great getaway! Maintenance will be taking care of the shower head, shower curtain, and remotes. Thank you!

Nice recently remodeled cabin in half a mile from the shoreline. Great location in a quiet vacation neighborhood. The bathroom plumbing was not in the best state.
Jacob B. Jul 2020
Convenience and comfort of this cabin were great.

This cabin is the perfect choice for small family. It has everything you need to enjoy your stay. There is a TV and DVD player to watch movies, And Wi-Fi was a plus, which we were not expecting. Hot high pressure shower was nice. There isn't air conditioning but it's not needed. The Box fan downstairs and the thermostat controlled window cooler up stairs kept it pleasantly nice the entire time we were there in July. We did bring our own coffee and filters as there weren't any for the standard coffee machine, But other than that, the kitchen was fully equipped with everything we needed! Also the neighborhood is very quiet and serene and we had great cell service also. It's a dog friendly cabin and neighborhood too. It was a few minute walk to local restaurants and grocery stores and also only a 5 minute walk down to Dorabella cove where there are trails down to Shaver Lake. It truly is the perfect location and cabin and experience!
Tanya M. Jul 2020
This place was as shown in photos - small and rustic - but that's what we wanted. It had everything we needed and was neat and clean. Good location within short walking distance to town and short drive to lake. We would return in a heartbeat!
Kirby C. Jul 2020
Plenty of parking, big lot.
Needed a bigger coach. It was me my wife and my two kids with only a love seat. It wasn’t very comfortable. But other than that it was great. Had everything you needed but enough seating.
Manager response:
Hi Kirby, thank you for staying with us! We are pleased to hear that the home met your expectations! I have forwarded your feedback to the local staff so they can work to improve the house for future guests. We hope you choose to stay with us again!
Hanna M. Jul 2020
We loved staying here with our family. We appreciated that we could bring our family dog and make memories all together. There was plenty of room, lots of kitchen stuff so we could feed our family, and enjoy tea on the balcony in the morning. Thank you! We will definitely come again.
David V. Jun 2020
Very clean - takes you back to simpler times it is like someone transported a cabin from the 60's to present day all of the period details are in amazing condition. If you are looking for modern amenities, and ample space this might not be the right choice.
Maksim D. Mar 2020
Had the cabin for 2 nights. For a family of 4–it’s perfect! Has 2 queen beds in the loft. We used the little fireplace/stove to heat up the whole house. It snowed outside and we were still warm. The place is really clean, including the bedsheets. Towels, toilet paper, and all kitchen utensils are all included as well as other necessities.
The only thing is we had electricity out 1 time, for about 30 mins, so be ready for that. But that might have been due to the snow storm.
Overall, would definitely come back again!!! Thanks for a great vacation and great memories!

This is a very rustic mountain cabin. EXACTLY what I was looking for. I've stayed many places but this one had everything you need and more. It's very cozy and if you are are not into fireplaces the heaters work well. This is not luxury but it's about as perfect of a mountain getaway you can get and not completely destroy your budget either.
