Sorry about the light bulbs, I'll ask management to check (it is on the checklist, they are supposed to replace any burned out ones between renters--oops!) We replace mattresses every two years, but I haven't yet figured out how to get a mattress everyone will love. The previous mattress in that room WAS memory foam, and I got a lot...

A fantastic place to stay. Plenty of room at a beautiful location. Close to town in case of any needs. Very comfortable. My only complaints: check out time should be later to give more clean up time yet enjoy your last day there. The remotes need to all have working batteries; we had to keep switching batteries from remote to...

Management response:

Thank you for your stay! I'm so very sorry about the spiders--we know there are spiders here in Shaver Lake and do everything we can to reduce the number that get into the house. We keep the house very clean so there is nothing inside for spiders to feed on, and we keep the exterior sealed and free of debris....

Additional Rate and Availability Information
Because this is a single house, not a hotel, we charge for the full amount if you don't give sufficient cancellation notice. Your dates are not held until you make a deposit. There is a minimum charge of $80 for any cancellation. Holidays require a minimum 4-night stay: New Years Day, President's Day, Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, Veteran's Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas. Processing fee pays a local management company to handle your needs when you are staying, and to take care of trash pickup, refilling the propane for the grill, providing keys, and handling any other issues you might have while staying. You will need to provide either a fully refundable damage deposit or purchase Accidental Damage Insurance. TripAdvisor does not allow us to update rates for stays far in the future so some rates shown for stays more than a year in advance may be incorrect.

About the neighborhood
Shaver Lake is a popular recreational lake surrounded by thick pine forests and provides for boating camping, hiking, fishing as well as water sports activities like water skiing, jet skis and windsurfing.
