Lakehead house description

The Wonderful Lakeside Retreat on Lake Shasta was acquired in 2008, totally renovated and new to the vacation rental market as of June 2009.

The property is a very roomy 2,000 s.f. family vacation rental on a third of an acre lot, with a game room in the garage and an on-site (off the street) easy access boat or trailer pad. This completely renovated and remodeled resort house is located in the quaint community of Lakehead and backs to Shasta Trinity National Forest Land with a private gate to the Forest Service trail directly to the Lake. There is nothing between you and the Lake except your desire to get there!

The house sleeps 10 in very comfy beds in bedrooms and can accommodate additional deluxe queen air mattresses (provided) in the master suite and the living room area as well as tents in the back yard.

Large shaded private deck looks directly into the forest and the lake cove behind the property (lake view is dependent upon time of year and level of lake but Lake Shasta is always HUGE no matter what the level!). Patio area is set up for outdoor meals or relaxing with table, chairs, bar, ice chest and barbeque.

You can tie your boat to the shore or rent a slip and transport to our built- in off-street pad. Don’t have a boat? Plenty of reasonable rentals for everything from jet-skis, ski boats, fishing boats and patio boats are available locally. Don’t want a boat? Relax by the shore in a lounge chair, floats on the warm water in a quiet cove or fish.

Our property is family owned and operated. See our rate schedule and calendar for more info. We accept Visa, MasterCard and Discover or bank cashier check 30 days in advance.

Responsible renters must be at least 25 years old and present on the property during the rental period. Well behaved dogs are welcome with an additional deposit (leash laws are enforced in the community). This is a Non-smoking house but there are designated areas to smoke outside.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2008

                  About the owner: Hi, my name is Karen DuBois and our vacation rental is a family owned and operated property. We are avid outdoor enthusiasts and relaxation specialists and have always loved Lake Shasta and all the wonderful surrounding areas. My parents moved to the Lake in 1972 and my Mom still lives in Lakehead.

                  Why the Owner Chose Lakehead:
                  We choose this property because my sister and I grew up in this same area on beautiful Shasta Lake and we always wanted to have a permanent residence where we could stay and share with other family members. When this property came on the market in 2008 we knew it would be perfect for our needs and we could share this great vacation experience with other families as well.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  There are only a few vacation rentals on the Lake that actually border Forest Service property with a direct trail to the Lake and our property is one of them. You can tie your boat to the shoreline and walk from the house to access the Lake. Our property has its own private gate directly to the Forest Service trail directly to the water's edge. Our property also has an off-street pad that will accommodate a large truck and trailer and driveway parking for other vehicles. We have converted the garage into a gameroom with a pool/ping pong table and other games. The entire property has been remodeled, decorated, landscaped and set up to provide every convenience for a relaxing, fun vacation.
