About Michelle McGee

I left my job as a wildlife biologist in 2014 to have my son Granite. As soon as he was born, I was hooked! Managing/maintaining our 1 bdrm vacation rental allowed me to stay home with our son. In 2016 we moved from our 3 bdrm condo ( and turned that one into a second vacation property. We live in Shaver Lake with our son and our adopted cattle dog that is beyond OCD about fetch.

Michelle McGee purchased this condo in 2003

Why Michelle McGee chose Shaver Lake

Eric McGee bought this condo in 2003 because it is close to all of the things he loves. Mountains, climbing, mountain biking, skiing, caving, and a wood stove which Eric refers to as the cowboy tv.

What makes this condo unique

We have spent countless hours on the back deck watching the wildlife pass by. At night you can listen and maybe catch a glimpse of flying squirrels! It is only a two minute walk from the front door to the pool/hot tub. So taking a quick soak after dinner is practically mandatory.

Flexible check in/out times. Normal check in time is 4pm, and check out is 11am. If I don't have another group checking in/out on your group's arrival/departure days, then those times can be more flexible. When I have another group checking out on your arrival day; I do my best to clean the place quickly so you can check in as soon as possible.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Excellent space with comfy furnishings & all the trimmings. Spent much time on the deck, love that deck. Information binder is excellent self tour with good instructions on all the little things. Everyone was impressed with the set up, it was beyond expectations.

An amazing stay!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I arrived a couple of hours early before check in and Michelle allowed us to check in, which saved us big on time. She greeted us and gave us some helpful hints about our stay; how to stay cool in the house; places to check out during our stay. I am very thankful for the tips about keeping the house cool because Shaver Lake can get pretty hot, but the home remained cool our entire stay. We loved the deck, the towels she offered for the pool. We had everything we needed. My fiancé even said next time we come, we will have to pack less because she has everything. We loved the condominium also! Very awesome sightseeing! We had an amazing weekend there. We will save Michelle’s information to come back again for sure!!!!

Awesome experience at this great little condo!

  • 5 of 5

We only had a couple problems but it didn’t affect our stay at all. We spent a few extra minutes trying to find the condo within the complex. Had to take a couple of laps before we were able to find it. Maybe give guests a map vs written directions? We also had issues with the sound bar below the tv, but it wasn’t a big deal. Last issue was the dumpsters being locked and we were not given the combo to the lock. The owner told us that it “looks” like it’s locked but it really isn’t. This wasn’t the case so we had to carry our trash in our car. Again, these issues had zero affect on our stay. I would rent this condo again and again! It was super clean and comfortable! We loved the big deck and the beautiful scenery! Michelle was also very helpful in finding grocery stores on our way there. We would highly recommend this condo to anyone!

Owner's Response: I'm glad you guys had a good visit. That's a great idea to have a map. I will work on that! I can meet you at the condo next time to show you how the dumpsters open up.

Perfect mix between rustic and modern ammenities.

  • 5 of 5

It was great! What I loved about this condo is no matter who visited me during my week stay, there was something for everyone, the teenagers were at the pool and hot tub, the senior in the sauna and great short hikes. For us middle aged young ones, the hiking in this area was beautiful and easily done thanks to managements maps of hiking surrounding areas. Its a small condo that was very comfortable for 5-6 people! Loved it, would highly recommend....

Perfect location! Clean cute condo!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect. We arrived late and the heater was on so it was warm and toasty upon arrival. There’s a King bed upstairs with a half wall and a twin next to it. This was perfect for our 9 y/o. Then downstairs was a sofa sleeper our other son slept on. It was clean and met our needs perfectly. There is a stream you could hear from the porch. It has a smart tv so we were able to log onto Netflix and watch movies. There was a Season pass for the sno parks there which was convenient since that’s why we were visiting. Overall a great condo. We will stay here again. Thanks for a great experience!

Awesome condo! We enjoyed it very much. That being said, I do have a couple of would have been nice to know in advance that the TV doesn't get any type of cable/dish channels. We did try the Netflix option on the Smart TV, however, it couldn't connect to Netflix. I couldn't even get it to the point that I could enter my login information. We would definitely stay here again in the future; I would just make sure I bring some DVDs from home.

Owner's Response: Sorry you experienced difficulty with the smart tv. I wish I would've known you were having trouble connecting, so I could've helped walk you through it. Please let me now next time if you need help with anything.
