Property description

Spawning Bed Inn, aka: Carr's River Cabin

This circa 1904 two bedroom, two bath cabin is located on the Upper Sacramento River in Castella; 12 miles south of Mt Shasta and 4 miles south of Dunsmuir. The property has private access to this Blue Ribbon trout stream which is easy to get to and includes a beach area for sun bathing.

This Castella vacation rental features a covered back porch with an expansive view of the river. From the porch, back yard, or river's edge, on any given morning or evening, you can view the area's abundant wildlife to include hatches, fish rising, osprey, heron, mink, ducks, deer and the occasional river otter. The large shaded back yard includes a picnic table, gas BBQ and lawn furniture.

The cabin is clean and cozy. The living room has a rock fireplace for ambiance and additional heat and the master bath features a claw foot bathtub with a view of the river. There are plenty of books and games available to read or play. It also includes a new HDTV, Nintendo Gamecube console and dvd/vcr player.

Those interested in trains may find the front porch as an ideal locale for observing and photographing rail traffic. Water and other recreation pursuits include fishing, swimming, inner-tubing, rafting, kayaking and mountain biking. Please bring your own gear!

Surrounding areas:

The cabin is located 1 mile from the Castle Crags State Park (featuring 27 miles of hiking trails including the Pacific Crest Trail). The park is located in the Shasta-Trinity National Forest and serves as the gateway to the Castle Crags Wilderness Area, Seven Lakes Basin and the Shasta-Trinity Divide. These areas are easily accessible by well-maintained U.S. Forest Service roads. The area is also user-friendly for the ATV and off-road user.

The cabin is located 30 minutes or less from two 9-hole golf courses located in Weed and McCloud as well as two 18-hole golf courses located at Mt. Shasta Resort and Lake Shastina. Public play is accepted. Mt. Shasta Resort has four tennis courts with community access and no user fee.

If you are a winter sports enthusiast, we are less than 30 minutes from the Mt. Shasta Board and Ski Park and the Mt. Shasta Nordic Center. The immediate surrounding area presents venues for unlimited cross country skiing, back country skiing and snowmobiling.

Surrounding towns:

Dunsmuir, located 4 miles north, is rich in railroad lore. Train buffs will enjoy the roundtable and the numerous train artifacts exhibited throughout the community. There are many nice restaurants, from our local pizza parlor to fine dining. Mt. Shasta City, located 12 miles north provides additional recreational and dining opportunities, shopping and a local cinema

Sunbathing in the afternoon and campfires in the evening has been our mainstay of our entertainment

Our beach is enjoyable all day and through the evening
