Property description

Peaceful Lakeside Home on 6 acres. This is the place you are looking for--once you come, no other rental will do. Hammond pond is a seasonal private lake that no motorized boats are allowed on. Watch the wild geese raise their young or the deer graze in the meadow.

Our home has a fully stocked Granite kitchen, Tempurpedic mattress in master, and stone fireplace (gas). This place has it all--views, trees, meadows, wildlife, walking trails (dirt road), seasonal lake for kayaking or canoes. Quaint newer home with incredible charm--gas BBQ, covered porch.

Hammond pond is a seasonal 70 acre lake that attracts wildlife and local fishermen. Nestled between Mount Shasta and Black Butte to the east and the 'Eddys' to the west, abundant day hike opportunities exist. If you are not up to climbing the 14,000 ft Mount Shasta, the Pacific Crest Trail offers many easier day hikes--one of my favorites is from the top of Stewart Springs road to Deadfall Lakes--an easy, relatively flat 4 mile (one way), spectacularly beautiful hike. The 'Park's Creek' trailhead is about 30 minutes from the house.

Another gem is the McCloud Falls trail--make sure you don't miss the Middle Falls! McCloud is about 15 miles east of Mt Shasta City on Highway 89. The Falls are a few miles east of McCloud at the 'Fowler's' turnoff.

There is also a maze of dirt roads to explore that connect the homes and properties of 'Hammond Ranch'. Besides the Lake, many creeks flow through the Ranch--the Shasta River (just a stream at this point), Dale Creek and Eddy Creek. Following Dale Creek road past the house to Dale Creek, crossing Dale Creek (you have to wade) and then on to Eddy Creek offers a wonderful 8 mile round trip. Hike or mountain bike along a minimally travelled, relatively flat, bumpy dirt road. Wildflowers abound and the road winds along a hillside that offers dramatic views of Mount Shasta and the valley. You may take quads along the roads--but please observe the 15 mph speed limit on the private roads.

Whether you use our home as a base camp or a place to unwind, you will find that you don't want to leave the spell that it casts over you. When I have guests the most common thing I hear in the morning is 'How do you leave this place to go to work?' This is not just a place to stay--it is a destination!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1994

About the owner: We built this home in 1994 after purchasing the property in 1992.

Why the Owner Chose Mount Shasta:
Once you come you will know why this property was the one we would never let go of. He always loved flat land and I always loved views...the minute we walked onto this land, we knew we were staying.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We designed this home to take full advantage of the views of the lake while minimizing the road. Because this is a small home, we also did not want to waste space with hallways. Both bedrooms are mini-suites at opposite ends of the house. The guest bedroom has its bath just steps from the door. This bath is the main bath for the house.
