Property description

This exclusive 3000 plus sq.ft. English Tudor is affectionately called, 'The Castle of Lake Shasta.'

The Castle has a unique history and setting that attracts people from all over the United States. From New York to L.A., Washington to San Diego, vistors find solace within the Castle's design and comforts.

Located DIRECTLY on the Lake, this 5 bedroom 3.5 bath Castle offers fabulous views of the Lake from every room. With just a 25 to 50 foot walk down 1 of 5 paths to the lake, in seconds
after leaving the Castle, you can be swimming in your own private cove or getting into your boat which you have moored at the water's edge.

Whether you are looking for the abundant wildlife of the Lake (bald eagles, osprey and other fauna) or the serenity and beauty of this mountain wonderland (Mt. Shasta, waterfalls, Shasta/Trinity Forest)this Lake Shasta rental has been the perfect getaway since 1992.

And yes, this Castle has a turret topped with a finial!! Each room is decorated as a Castle should be with lots of antiques, yet most comfortable and cozy for a great nights rest!! The Great Room has ceilings 18 feet high with an 8 ft. high fireplace. The breakfast nook area is great for morning coffee and roll and the formal dining room offers spectacular views of the lake!!

The outdoor Bar-B-Que pit with picnic tables offers outdoor cooking/marshmallow roasting in the total family atmosphere while the back deck cooking area/dining table offers yet another delectable selection for Castle dining.

The Castle is located at the end of the cul de sac and is set back away from the street. This feature tends to add more peace, quiet and privacy to your visit.

With notable quotes from former guests like:

'If you are looking for the first and best vacation rental on Lake
Shasta, look no further than the Castle'

'We've tried the others on the lake, but they weren't as fun or
relaxing as the Castle'

and finally..

'The Castle Rocks!!!'

VRBO Bear stayed here:


We knew we had chosen the perfect place for our long weekend getaway the moment we first saw The Castle in Lake Head, California. Walking through the door, our first impression was the attention to detail. The Castle was beautifully decorated as one would expect a castle would be. The home masterfully balanced new modern conveniences with beautiful old world antiques. Marc, the owner was a very gracious host and ensured everything was perfect for our arrival. Plus, he made himself available for any questions or concerns during our stay.

Upon our arrival, we enjoyed exploring The Castle. The property featured little areas tucked away within the structure that provided something new to look at and discover around every corner. After exploring the whole house, I chose the master bedroom as my favorite out of the five bedrooms. The decision was hard since four of the five bedrooms have wall mounted flat screen TVs! The master bedroom featured a king sized bed, comfy mattress and little window seat that overlooked the valley. It was the ideal place for me to sit and read my favorite novel. The master bedroom also included a large soaking tub with a variety of bubble baths, bath salts and soaps to pamper myself.

The kitchen was a cook’s dream with granite countertops, a double oven, large refrigerator, dishwasher, and lots of pots and pans for whipping up the perfect meal. The kitchen even featured a wall mounted TV to listen to while we cooked.

While staying at The Castle, there were a variety of activities to keep us busy. Inside the house, we had fun playing ping pong, Foosball, card games and more. We spent a lazy morning sunning ourselves on deck chairs from the home’s large deck featuring scenic Shasta Lake views. Most afternoons, we headed down the hill to Shasta Lake for swimming and fishing. If you have a boat, there’s nearby places to dock and launch it close by The Castle. Additionally, Shasta Lake National Park provided opportunities for hiking, mountain biking, picnicking and hunting.

In addition to many outdoor activities, the city of Redding was only a short drive away. In Redding, we visited many of the local attractions including the Sundial Bridge at Turtle Bay, Shasta Dam and local gardens. We shopped and enjoyed a wide variety of restaurants. After a long day in Redding, we enjoyed returning to The Castle and soaking our tired paws in the hot tub as we watched the sunset.

Overall, The Castle was a perfect retreat from the hustle and bustle of life. It’s the perfect place to relax and make lasting memories for any family large or small.
