    "I can't say or add more to the reviews already posted. What you see is what you get and more! I could go on and on but the past reviews say it all. Our family had a wonderful time."

  • Amazing view

    "We stayed 5 days and 4 nights. The view is AMAZING! The large deck was a perfect place to sit and relax. The lake is very low this year so walking to the lake wasn't an option with children. But the view cannot be beat!"

  • A beautiful house, but Lakehead is HOT!

    "We had an enjoyable time at Lake Shasta. The house was exactly as described in the posting. Positives * The owners are accommodating and reasonable. We locked ourselves out of the house one day (totally our fault). We called them and the owners' father came over and let us back in without any hassle at all. * The kitchen is well equipped. The appliances and kitchenware were top notch. We made really good use of the kitchen -- an ice cream maker, two waffle irons, frosty beer mugs, etc... * The house is clean, new, and well maintained. You can tell that the owners try hard to keep things nice. My only real complaint was about the swaying bunkbeds. We ended up tightening the screws and it was perfectly fine. Negatives * My biggest complaint isn't about the house. It is about Lakehead itself (I feel bad about knocking it down a star, but I'm grading the whole experience). The week we went, the weather was unbearably hot! It was 109 just about every day (I guess that is fairly normal for this area). The Lake is also super dry as a result of the severe draughts in California. As such, there was no swimming hole to speak of. We still went boating and had a good time. The porch was fantastic, but we were only able to enjoy it in the mornings. We mostly had to stick with indoor activities which meant that we had to drive down to Redding (about 35 minutes) practically every day. * Only having 2.5 baths for a 5 bedroom house wasn't great, but we made it work. Again, exactly as advertised."

  • Perfect Getaway

    "I took my wife for a one-night getaway from the fast pace of life. It was so relaxing and refreshing. As you look out from the balcony, you have a panoramic view of the lake. We've stayed in a lot of places over the years because I travel as part of my job. This by far was one of the best places. I highly recommend this place for a romantic getaway- you won't be disappointed. There is even a small gym downstairs and a jacuzzi out on the deck. Thank you so much, Ken and Ashley!"

Lakehead Travel Tips

Lakehead Lodging Is California's Long Lost Secret Retreat

Imagine being able to take a vacation in the heart of nature where it's calm, soothing and relaxing. That is just what is offered when you stay in one of the many Shasta Lake vacation rentals. Shasta Lake is known for having some of the prettiest greenery in the California area. No matter which of the many Lakehead cabins you stay in, you'll be able to take in the beautiful views and relaxing nature that comes with staying around the Shasta Lake area.

Shasta Lake's Hidden Secret

While you might be in awe of the beautiful views that surround the Shasta Lake area, there is a secret world hidden below the surface of the earth and right along the shores of Shasta Lake. The Shasta Lake Caverns, which is just a short walk or car ride from the Lakehead lodging facilities, offer a beautiful tour of one of Shasta Lake's little known secrets. The caverns are an example of nature's beauty with huge stalagmites and wonderful rock formations. It really is an experience to remember and being right next door to the Lakehead cabins, it's impossible to pass up.

Feed the Hunger Within

Whether you spend your day on the waters of Lake Shasta or exploring the caves of the caverns, you will want to feed your ever growing hunger. Just minutes away from your Lakehead lodging is a locally owned restaurant that is known for its large portions and made-from-scratch meals. The Joe's Giant Orange is known all around the Lake Shasta area for serving some of the freshest and best Mexican food in the area. It's a great way to feed your hunger, experience a wonderful local hub, and socialize with the locals and other vacationers. Who knows? You just might get a lead on another great Lake Shasta secret.
