My family went done and enjoyed this beautiful lake. They had a great time doing the paddle boats. We liked the beach area

This was a summer visit to Snowshoe and the Ballhooter lift ride was great fun with beautiful scenery. Shavers Lake has a snack bar as well as kayaks, canoes, paddleboards, and a beach.

The lift was a new experience for me and was why I never tried skiing. I was terrified of the lift. But this year I am learning to ski. Riding the lift in the summer was a great experience and totally calmed my fears. Cannot wait to return with the whole family and hoping to learn how to ski \.

This ride is so wonderful - beautiful view and peaceful. This is one of the main reasons we stay at Snowshoe, so that we can ride the chairlift! It is fun to get off at the bottom and spend time at Shaver's lake, either to get a drink on the deck at the Boathouse or run a paddleboat around the... More

We come skiing here every winter. It is only about an hour from our house. Yet, this is the first time I had ever ridden the lift in the summer months. It was a neat experience. The lift can be a little unnerving for smaller kids, or those who have a fear of heights. Once at the bottom, we had... More

Being summer not a lot going on at the resort; however the lift down to the Lake and using the paddle boats was a highlight of our stay.

The ride down is scenic, but a little scary for little kids. Lots of fun things to do for the family. My boys liked the playground equipment and inflatable obstacle course in the lake. The canoes, paddle boats, and kayaks were fun. The beach sand was actually pretty nice for a lake. My only suggestion would be for the lifeguards... More

We went there in summer. The scenery is beautiful. There are many lift rides across the mountain. This one had the best scenery. From top you can reach the lake and from there you can take paddle boats/kayak and explore the lake. There is also a small boat house restaurant near the lake. This was definitely the best event for... More

This lake was out of a movie. So peaceful and wake free. Only kayaks and canoes and paddle boats allowed so it is a great one for a quiet ride or with small kids. The small beach area is nice too and the hammocks in the woods were really a nice treat. The only reason I did not give it... More
