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 (www.vrbo.com/872600) 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 Gold Country / High Sierra

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.

Truly a great condo and owner!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time at Shaver Lake and would book an other stay at a McGee rental in a heart beat. The condo was well stocked with everyday items that we didn't have to lug up the hill if we RVed it. The condo has a comfortable feel and beautiful birds outside surrounded by forrest. Michelle was always available by text if we had a question. We lucked out and all the neighboring condos were empty, so it was very peaceful and quite. No regrets!

Great Location and well maintained

  • 5 of 5

We took our family of 5 there and had a blast. The owner was VERY helpful and great at communicating details. The residence was well maintained, stocked and had what we needed. The location was very close to the lake, only a 10 minute drive. They had great books, movies, and even a smart TV with worked great for our kids and Netflix after a long day out. TV remote was a little issue though, but overall i'd recommend this place.

A Short Family Get Away

  • 5 of 5

We loved the condo as soon as we arrived, it was beautifully decorated and It had everything we needed. Everything was up to date fromTV to the The bbq grill. We ventured to the Mono Hot Springs, Huntington Lake for a dip and to a beautiful waterfall. The Binder in the condo was very helpful and helped answer most of our questions. We hope to maybe visit in the winter. Thank you Michelle for letting us stay at your beautiful condo we truly enjoyed it.
