Lakehead chateau / country house description

What do you call this new, architecturally designed, two-story log home nestled in the foothills of the Trinity Alps, and set on twenty-five acres of pine, oak and Manzanita? You call it Sierra Log Lodge, your dream vacation home far from worldly cares… or the center of activity with four telephones and cellular reception.

It’s your call.

A truly great room is the main floor’s dog friendly “Great Room,” where you look up to a soaring 30-foot ceiling of enormous handcrafted sierra pine and cedar log beams and perlins. Six massive windows with western exposure face professionally landscaped California native plants and panoramic mountain views. The stylish furnishings are sturdy tables and chairs as well as comfortable sofas outfitted in colorful native textiles from Chile, Argentina, and Peru. Entertain with cable/satellite TV, a DVD and CD player, a VCR, and music and video libraries.

Downstairs, the fully equipped dream kitchen was carefully planned to include maintenance friendly concrete tables, countertops and floors. Appliances are stainless steel. A pantry (!) provides ample storage for meals served in nearby eating and living areas.

Also downstairs is the ultra-private large master suite with queen sized bed, well appointed bath, and extra large closet.

Upstairs, you’ll find a carpeted loft with a fold down couch and two other spacious bedrooms, one with a queen sized bed and the other with two twin beds and extra large closets.

Sleeping in any of the bedrooms rivals a fashionable city hotel because of the 600 thread count cotton sheets and down comforters.

Plan on sleeping six in three bedrooms, or eight if you use the fold down, or even more than you thought possible if you include the downstairs couches.

Picture your family and/or guests gathering on a 270- degree, west facing patio of 1,000 square feet protected by an overhanging roof. Wine and dine them after barbecuing on the two grills. Challenge them on the regulation horseshoe and Bocce Ball courts. You’ll have room for an RV/boat/trailer as well as parking for approximately 15 vehicles on this three and one-half acre property.

Do as little as possible on vacation or engage in such activities as golfing, biking and hiking. Or, find boating and other water sports, as well as fly fishing, available at Shasta Lake—a mere five minutes away. Travel 20 minutes to the Upper and Lower Sacramento Rivers, or 90 minutes to the Trinity, McCloud and Applegate Rivers. The Klamath, Eel and Fall Rivers are only two hours away (along with many lakes and creeks).
Winter visitors can snowmobile, cross country or downhill ski at Mt. Shasta Ski Park. Wine mavens will enjoy the area’s numerous wineries

Some points of interest located in Redding are: the amazing Calatrava 'Sundial' Bridge connecting the Turtle Bay Exploration Park and the McConnell Arboretum; the Sacramento River Trail; the Shasta Dam and Shasta Caverns; and, of course, the spectacular 14,161-foot Mt. Shasta. Railroad buffs can even find a railroad museum located near Dunsmuir.

It’s your unforgettable vacation house… just the way you want it. It's your call.

              Year Purchased: 2011

              About: We are Diane and Al. Diane is a financial consultant and Al, her loyal sidekick, is a judge and raconteur. We chose the Lake Shasta area to build our dream home because of its natural beauty, fabulous fly fishing and myriad outdoor activities.

              Why Lakehead:
              The lodge location was chosen because of its unique combination of a restful, rural setting, yet close proximity to Interstate 5 and the amenities of Redding. Diane and I enjoy the outdoors, fly fishing and a restful get-away from the bustle of San Francisco.
