Lakehead house description

'Is perfect ok?' Heaven on earth! Our smaller home, Dream View has all that a couple or small group has to offer. From the panoramic views of the Shasta Trinity National Forest and Shasta Lake to the nature we are encumbered in, we are the definition of peace, tranquility, romance, decadence, and absolute splendor. Our reviews say it all!

'Where do I begin. We stayed here at the end of July, but I've been so busy reliving our stay, I forgot to review on VRBO until today! Everything was perfection, completely exceeding my fiancé and I's expectations. From the moment we met Ken (who gave us an amazing tour, helpful hints for things to do and walked us through everything we might need to know) we knew it was going to be a great property. He opened the door, I dropped my bag and gasped: pictures do no justice, you MUST come see this view. The house's design and layout was stunning; of course we LOVED the double decks. Sunrise yoga has never been more serene. We brought a hammock and spend each evening (after using the hottub) enchanted by the stars—We've been some isolated places, yet I have ever seen so many. I must have counted handfuls of shooting stars. Pure magic. We also heard the gentle sounds of deer and little critters scattering about the forest; we planned to use the sound system, but didn't—nature's music was enough. Ken has thought of everything, if even for a moment you turn your back on the view there tends to be a mirror to reflect it. And no, you will never tire of it. Each morning we awoke stunned once more at the beauty. The house has everything you may need, including a well-stocked kitchen, roomy fridge, nice tv (although, lets be real--watching the lake is all the entertainment you need) and tons of natural light! The couch is very comfortable, and I really wish I could have taken the bed home with me!!! The deck is awesome, no chance of splinters here! I forgot all about shoes all weekend (and it was awesome) We have been fortunate enough to travel a lot these last few years, always looking for an amazing rental, but the Dream View stands above all the rest in all it's incredible ambiance and we are eager to return. Hope you have room for us next year Ken, we are so so looking forward to staying again!'

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 1999

                          About the owner: Born on the South Side of Chicago, Illinois, Kenneth Howard Tellstrom experienced his first water skiing experience on Lake Michigan in the summer time at the tender age of 5 years old. He always remembers that time in the freezing and rough, choppy water. His parents bought a cottage in Indiana when Ken was 7 years old. His father bought a family ski boat where he started on Bass Lake, Indiana. Every weekend his father would take him out on the lake and have Ken practice until there was nothing left in him. Ken always excelled in sports. Wrestling and diving came natural to him leading him to win City and State Championships in both sports. At the age of 18, Ken packed his bags and made a drastic move to Southern California where he had a wrestling scholarship. He was quickly derailed by Huntington Beach where he started surfing which quickly led him to making it a career. After 7 years of surfing on the shores of California and Hawaii, Ken was missing his roots of being on the lake. He had heard about Shasta Lake, CA being the best lake in the entire Western States. He quickly packed his bags and made the move up to Redding, CA. When he started back, ‘Scurfing’, which is what Wakeboarding was called at the time, was THE sport of that time. With Ken’s background in diving in 1 meter, 3 meter and platform, his air awareness and 7 years of prior Surfing made him a natural. Falling in love with the sport, Ken started a Wakeboarding school called Extreme Wakeboarding in 1988 and he enjoyed 11 years of teaching families and kids on Shasta Lake. Ken ended his 11 years of Wakeboarding and schooling on top of the world. Bringing home World and National Champion Titles in his division in 1999. Ken feels extremely blessed to be living on his playground, Shasta Lake, currently running his vacation rental business and being a self employed contractor.

                          Why the Owner Chose Lakehead:
                          I visited Shasta Lake 25 years ago and fell in love with it. I moved from Southern California to be near the lake, and made it my home. There isn't a more beautiful location on this lake.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          The number one feature for me is the privacy. We are surrounded by 30,000 acres of pristine national forest. The views here are the most spectacular on the lake, and there is not another house in site. It is quiet and unspoiled, and it seems to have a calming effect on everyone who stays here. The only thing between me and the lake is mother nature. And that's how I like it.
