No cell service at cabin


Only issue was original keyless access code did not work and we did not have cell service at the cabin. Luckily the manager at the Tamarack Lodge let us use his phone. Among us we had 3 different carriers and no cell service until closer to Lake Huntington, so I had to wait for service to send the checkout text but one person with us had no signal at all our entire time, so that could be an issue for some future guests.

We had a great time


We had a great time. Cabin is rustic but spacious and well stocked. Neighbor dogs were fine, one of them (short hair one) was a bit alpha so if your dog doesn't tolerate that, it might not be a good fit. We loved walking out the back door and being in the forest. 5 minutes to China peak and Huntington lake and in a cool remote little neighborhood.

Nice cabin


Nice cabin, the wi-if was pretty slow with 8 people trying to use it. The kitchen was well stocked, lots of games and DVDs were available the kids had a blast!


You should alert the owners that they have at least one field mouse (2 in. body) roaming the house. We also had a LOT of difficulty with the neighbor's dog (South neighbor) coming onto the porch and threatening us. I'm sure he was sniffing for our dog, but when we were shooing him away he was baring teeth and not backing off. We finally barricaded ourselves in with the metal outdoor chairs. Unfortunately, that neighbor had left for more than a day and we couldn't ask him to restrain his dogs. He roams into all the other properties too...but they must not have animals, so he didn't seem to bother them as much. It would help to have instructions on premise as to the firewood and trash rules. Otherwise, please thank the owners for the rental.

Manager's Response - 12/06/2016

Thank you for taking the time to respond to our survey request. We are sorry to hear about your experience with the mouse and neighbors dog. We have informed the owner and will be sending out pest control to cover the mouse issue. We are aware of the neighbors dog but this is the first time it has been an issue with any threat. Usually the dog has always been friendly in the past. We are sorry to hear that you felt threatened and will notify the neighbor about the complaint. We appreciate your business very much and hope you will come up again soon and stay with Shaver Lake Vacation Rentals once more.
