Recent Shasta Lake reviews

  • 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."

  • Beautiful stay

    "I stayed here with my group of friends for Labor Day weekend, and truly enjoyed my experience. There were 6 of us, and we were very comfortable. The views from the living room are gorgeous - it is worth every penny to just sit outside on the patio and enjoy the breakfast with the stunning views. The host (and property manager) were very responsible and easy to work with prior to and during our stay."

  • Great value, great location, great house!

    "This home is well cared for and it's spacious, clean and comfortable. It's a five minute drive to the lake and marina, and 2 minutes from the local Lakehead eateries, market and gas. We rented it for a girls getaway and it was perfect! The kitchen was big so we could all be in and around there at the same time, and it was well stocked with everything and more than we needed. The big open living dining kitchen area was ideal. If you don't have a boat, get Sandy's phone number and rent her patio boat for the day and enjoy the lake! We spotted 2 juvenile bald eagles and their nests in a cove, and watched in amazement as they soared over the aqua blue water, and up against the clear blue sky. This was pure enjoyment, relaxation, comfort and style - Shasta style!"

  • Weekend getaway

    "We just spent a weekend at the Bear Hugger and had a wonderful time. The property is comfortable, charming and extremely well taken care of. The kitchen had everything we needed to make delicious meals. We spent a lot of our time on the lovely outdoor deck, grilling dinner and enjoying the stars. The location can't be beat. We enjoyed a beautiful afternoon boating on Lake Shasta. Our kids loved the house with all of its fun games and adorable bears, it's a perfect home for families. We will be back!!"
