Great location. Liked the floor plan.
Todd M. Dec 2022
Dirty, broken, and, even worse, unresponsive. The list of problems is too long to fit. I’d been told many times to expect a call. Nothing. Horrible experience.

My favorite part of this cabin was the open floor plan and each room having its own bathroom and shower
Jason T. Nov 2022
The house and neighborhood are absolutely beautiful. The rooms are thoughtfully laid out for maximum occupancy without feeling crowded and Vacasa’s customer service was exceptional.
Oscar V. Nov 2022
It was in an good location. We had a convenient area behind the cabin for kids to play in the snow. Kitchen was pretty stocked. Some board games we’re available for the family to enjoy. There was a lot of ice on the balcony from a recent snowstorm making it difficult to enjoy. Not easy to break the ice. The wifi info we were given was not correct so went without wifi. Not a clean as would have hoped. When we swept we gathered a lot of pet hair. We found pet hair on our clothes after sitting on the couch. Shower knobs not easy to use. Not the end of the world but we shouldn’t need to try so hard to enjoy a place.
Manager response:
We appreciate you staying with us and apologize we missed getting the balcony ready for you and missed some cleaning some areas. The new WiFi router has the password information on it, and the shower knobs will be inspected. Thank you!

Plenty of space in this 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom home, including for the dogs! Kitchen was well appointed with everything the home chef needs. Quiet atmosphere, we had a great time.
David S. Aug 2022
Perfect for a large family or mash up of two smaller families. Bathrooms in each bedroom are a big plus. Perfect for family time, watching movies together or sitting on the deck enjoying the forrest. We even saw a deer cruise by. Very quiet street. Well maintained and clean. I hope they will welcome us back next year!

We loved the location of this cabin (close to town and less than a 10 min drive to the lake) and the spaciousness of it as well. It was clean as well!
Danielle C. Jun 2022
The house had amazing views of the surrounding forest and was close to the lake and downtown area.
Jeanette H. Jun 2022
Almost everything
Oscar N. Jun 2022
Came with everything pots pans utensils and a lot of space only thing it didn’t have ac only fans and it could use some updated bedding and couch pillows and the hot water would run out fast
Ivan M. May 2022
Loved everything
Jorge B. Apr 2022
Very spacious and comfortable home, close to shaver lake and near by town. Beds and living area as well as kitchen were great. Best of all all the bedrooms have their own bathroom. We would definitely return to this ho.e.
William L. Mar 2022
All the comforts of home & away from the hustle & bustle. Not one of us in our group had a complaint with this cabin. It was well kept & had everything we needed. It was a great weekend get away! Thank you!
Andrew H. Mar 2022
Great place. A lot of room. Clean and full of amenities. Great location
Cynthia B. Feb 2022
The house was very comfortable. The beds were comfortable. Very accommodating for myself and other guests.
Casey R. Jan 2022
Great neighborhood, allows pets but the house doesn’t smell like pets. House has some flaws to it and isn’t a quiet house, meaning walking, closing doors and cabinets and such travel down to the second level so I don’t recommend this house if you have little babies that need their naps and the other bedroom is right next to the kitchen. So hard to stay quiet when others are sleeping.
Patricia C. Jan 2022
the house was perfect for a big family get together, nothing fancy but nice .
Raymond M. Dec 2021
Home was perfect. Ad doesn’t really say if home has central heating, but it does. Which explains why the pellet stove says to not use. We had a winter storm during our stay that snowed us in. But when we woke up in the morning on the day of our leave almost all of the now had been removed. Not sure if this was an homeowners association thing or a rental thing. Plenty of hills around the property for sledding and snow play. Will definitely be back in the future.
Manager response:
Hi, Raymond! Thank you for taking the time to share your review with us. We apologize for any confusion regarding the heating and cooling of the home. Please know we have staff ready and available at all hours of the day to answer any questions that may arise. We hope to host you again soon!
Alex P. Sep 2021
We had a great vacation! The house has an open floor plan with plenty of space. The kitchen is nice and has everything you need.. The home is surrounded by huge pine trees and has a great back deck
Megan A. Aug 2021
Aspen Vista is one of the best cabins we’ve stayed at in the Shaver Lake area. It has lots of space and was clean and well laid out. Although without air conditioning it was quite warm when we arrived the first night, Vacasa provided multiple fans throughout the house and we were much cooler the rest of the stay. Can’t wait to stay here again next summer!
Rebecca H. Aug 2021
We really liked this home and the layout. I loved that each room had its own bathroom and large closets. It was clean and well stocked. Everything you need is provided. I would recommend a fridge inspection as the motor is very loud and sounds like it may not last very much longer. I would also suggest tightening the dishwasher as it slides back and forth in the cabinet. Overall we really liked this home and enjoyed our stay.
Shalin P. Jul 2021
We stayed here for about the week to take time off from the crazy year. The home was clean and tidy and all amenities were available as described. We will consider staying here next year.
Andrew S. Jul 2021
The home was nice and very comfortable. Plenty of room for everyone.

Ana V. Jun 2021
The listing didn’t mention firepit nor did i see one in pics so we knew going there that there wouldn’t be one. But they do have a small fireplace so we brought wood to make s’mores and were disappointed it had a sign to not use it. Maybe it’s something they allow only in the winter. I’m not sure. The hand rail inside was very loose but my brother in law had a screwdriver and tightened it. Other than that everything was great. There was nothing that would prevent me from staying here again. I would definitely recommend it to friends and family
Manager response:
We appreciate you tightening the rail and will be sure to check that everything is still secure. Thank you, Ana!
Cindy W. Jun 2021
So disappointed in the lack of cleaning. Everything was dusty inside and out. Cobwebs, dust, food particles... Pots and pans had food left in them. Thought this was going to be a vacation, not a cleaning fest. The house itself was perfect in all ways. Just disappointed that a portion of my time had to be spent on cleaning.
Manager response:
Hi Cindy. Thank you for your review. We're sorry to hear that the home was in this condition upon your arrival, as it doesn't fall in line with our cleaning standards. We have implemented a Premium Cleaning Program for our homes so that we can continue to provide excellent experiences for all our guests. We appreciate you taking the time to leave this feedback and hope that we have another chance in the future to impress you.
Stella B. May 2021
Home is well kept, had everything we needed, that we did not know we needed (that’s the best part). Spacious, great location, quiet and peaceful!
Jaime L. May 2021
We stayed in this home very cozy, very well equipped with everything you need. Very spacious, it accommodated our family. The only downfall was there was dog hair, it was not swept well.
Vivian G. Feb 2021
Very beautiful home. It's extremely cozy and it feels just like your own. They supply you with all the cooking and cleaning utensils needed and they are located in easy to find or reach spaces. The house is very clean and spacious, perfect for a family get away. Definitely recommend 👍
Monica L. Jul 2020
We just returned from Shaver Lake and stayed in this beautiful home. Pictures represent the home well. Very comfortable and plenty of room for six. Back deck is just lovely. Huge kitchen. Downstairs bedrooms cooler than upstairs. We will go back! Just a few notes—home does not have dish towels and only provides one roll of paper towels. And to use the dishwasher you have to unplug the garbage disposal. But once we figured this out all was good!
William S. Jul 2020
The house itself and the location was good. Just a few minutes from the lake and plenty of space for the family.

Outside of that the service from Vacasa even before we arrived was terrible. At first glance when we arrived the house looked great, but as we unpacked and got settled we began noticing all of the short comings and obvious lack of effort that was given in preparing the home for us. Despite receiving a text message the day prior to check-in that said “our team is dedicating extra time to cleaning,” the house was not clean.

The first thing we found was a Cheeto on the living room carpet. Bright orange, pretty hard to miss if you’re dedicating extra time. That led to finding Cheeto and what looked like mustard on the living room furniture. The bedrooms looked clean but all of the comforters had stains on them. From the bedrooms we moved to the deck and that’s where things got worse. There were dried and burnt onion pieces and bottle caps on the deck around the gas grill. The grill itself was not cleaned and still had burnt onions and cheese all over it. To make that matter worse the propane was empty so we had to go purchase our own to clean the grill and be able to use it. Overall it was easy to see the house was wiped down at best with an effort to appear clean than actually cleaning it.

With the current pandemic I would expect much more effort into providing a clean environment for guests. After we kept discovering more and more around the house we decided it best to assume that none of the bedding had been cleaned and spent our first night on vacation cleaning and doing laundry.
(I do have pictures that I am happy to share).

We tried to contact Vacasa via phone and email when we arrived. The phone members we were given both went straight to the same recorded message. Each time we called we were on hold for 20 plus minutes before giving up. There was no way to leave a message and I am still waiting for a reply from the email we sent on Sunday. (It’s now Friday and our trip ended two days ago). Needless to say I will not be renting from you again and I would not recommend to anyone to rent a vacation home from Vacasa either.

My family and I had a great time at Aspen Vista, we can't wait to go buy! We enjoyed our walks around the neighborhoods and a quiet BBQ out on the back deck. Define recommend it!
