Property description

Jackalope Acres, our forest estate, awaits you only 15 minutes from Mt. Lassen National Park in the heart of some the most gorgeous, unspoiled hiking and fishing country in California--or the world! Read our 5 Star Reviews!

Stunning 5-bedroom, 4-bath log house on 20 acres of forest and meadowland, in mountains near Mt. Lassen National Park--and multiple other amazing destinations.

The property is set at 4400 feet elevation with historic North Battle Creek running through the backyard, restored to sylvan condition and populated by wild brown trout.

Jackalope Acres isn't just a place to stay--it's a place to create memories! A family resort! Or a couples get away! With amenities available nowhere else in the area.

If you have a larger group than 16, including a school or a church group, or a possible wedding, we may be able to accommodate you with a reasonable additional charge and security deposit. Feel free to contact us.

Our custom Alaskan cedar hot tub, sunken into the large wrap around deck, is the perfect place to start the day watching the song birds and hummingbirds at the feeders or end it with a cocktail or a glass of wine. We also have a large sunken firepit perfect for the cool evening weather.

Jackalope Acres is unique set on 20 private acres with extensive trails throughout the grounds for walking, (and in winter) snow shoeing, or cross country skiing. There are multiple evergreen species, black oak, plus meadows with native grasses and flowers.

You'll see deer, dove, quail, blue heron, hawks, and even wild turkeys. Bring a basket and enjoy a picnic at the table by creek.

Use our canoe or our kayaks at no additional charge on nearby Lake McCumber, also known for it's huge wild trout, bald eagles, and osprey.

Play croquet, badminton,or volley ball on the grass lawn. Throw horseshoes in the firepit. Or throw the footballs, frisbees, or play catch with our balls and gloves. One man's and one woman's mountain bike--and miles of roads. World class indoor outdoor ping pong table!

In winter, we have 4 sets of snow shoes for use at the acres or for Mt Lassen Park. There is a sledding hill on the property kids love. Or take our sleds up to Eskimo Hill where the locals go! Or just watch the leaves and the snow fall from the hot tub! 90 minutes from Mt. Shasta winter skiing!

Bedrooms include two master suites, one in main house and second in gorgeous open loft, each with individual attached baths. Main house has 2 additional upstairs bedrooms (one with additional loft bed) and shared bath. Downstairs bedroom has its own hall bath. Perfect for 5 individuals or 5 couples, but with additional futon sofas in master suites, house can sleep 16.

Gorgeous, eclectic interior lighting and furnishings. Original art and photography throughout house.

Cook gourmet meals in our remodeled, fully equipped kitchen with quartz counter tops and state-of-the-art appliances. Six-burner cast iron gas stove, conventional, convection and microwave ovens, Cusinart, blender, coffee maker, ice cream maker, and extra refrigerator and freezer in garage. We provide the spices condiments, napkins, paper towels, etc!

Entertain in the open living room/dining area with state of art iPod and laptop compatible media stereo. Relax in the separate sitting area in front of the Vermont Castings fireplace. In summer, bring the outdoors in: living and dining area also open to deck through 2 sets of sliding doors, with dining tables and lounge chairs. Cook on the propane grill with a gorgeous custom made prep table.

There is an enclosed firepit close to the house for evening camp fires, marshmallows and smores!

Enjoy your favorite sports events in the media room with 50' plasma flat screen, satellite TV package, Bose surround sound, Blue Ray DVD, game table and bar.
Wireless Internet throughout the house.

Fully automatic backup generator power for entire house and all appliances. Laundry room. Caretaker and cleaning service is available in the neighborhood.

This incredible, one of a kind estate is only 15 minutes from Mt. Lassen National Volcanic Park, an untrafficked jewel for both winter and summer.

Jackalope Acres is 11 miles from Shingletown, and 35 miles from Downtown Redding. It's 235 miles northeast San Francisco--a four hour drive--and only 35 minutes from Redding airport. Special, spectacular backroads driving directions available!

Jackolope Acres is also only 30 miles from world famous trout fishery Hat Creek.

Dozens of other world class rivers, streams, lakes, and state parks are all within 1 hour or less. World class private fishing booking are available through Fly Shop in Redding.

The house is also only 1/2 hour from the emerging Manton Valley winery district with small wineries, a wide range of varietals and friendly, vintner staffed tasting rooms.

There is a world class restaurant and an award winning winery 20 minutes away at Anselmo's. Great local burgers and a good deli are also available nearby.

The area is unspoiled, uncrowded, and free from the traffic and people jams of so many other California “outdoor” destinations such as Yosemite or Lake Tahoe.

Sun Oaks Racquet Club 35 minutes away allows day passes for tennis and/or to use their complete fitness facility. More detailed, custom activity suggestions in owner created guidebook at house.

Truly a place to get away, relax, explore, and entertain. Great in all four seasons. Warm summer temperatures with cool nights and gorgeous, moderate winter snows.

The secret undiscovered North State region of California around Lassen National Park is uncrowded and stunningly gorgeous. Hiking, plus kayaking and canoeing (we have the kayaks and the canoe for you!), incredible fishing, biking (we have those too!), star gazing, a small world class restaurant, wine tasting...These are just a few of your options in our neighborhood! Not to mention the amenities at our house.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: We are urban San Franciscans who always dreamed of having a property where we could get back to nature. We grew up fishing, hiking and exploring, and we can truly say we have found the perfect escape from our busy life in the city. It is a great pleasure to share our home with friends, family and guests.

Why the Owner Chose Lassen Park:
Shingletown is a quaint community, just a few miles from Lassen National Park and surrounded by pristine lakes, streams and abundant hiking. We fell in love with the property's 20 acres which are home to deer, jack rabbits and countless species of birds. Even in summer, Shingletown is never crowded. It feels remote, but it is only 45 minutes away from the Shasta Premium Outlets and the town of Redding and its historic downtown.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Looking at the skies from the backyard, you will be amazed to see so many stars!!!!
