  • Great Cabin in the Middle of the Mountains

    "I stayed here for three nights with four other friends. We all felt like we received the "cabin experience" we were hoping for. There is a nice screened in porch, a large family room with two single beds and a wide couch that can easily be used as another single bed. There is one bathroom with a fully functioning shower and sink with hot water. In addition to the single beds in the family room, there is a double bed in a separate more private room as well. All sheets, blankets, pillows were provided. The kitchen had a full size refrigerator/freezer, stove top, and oven. After the visit, our group decided that we had packed way too many things since almost everything was provided in this cabin. Out back, there was a patio with a fireplace and cooking grate. Wood was free of charge and easily accessible. All in all, a great cabin with everything needed for a fun stay. The location of the cabin was perfect as well. We had not planned any activities prior to arriving at the cabin, but we had no trouble finding things to do. The cabin is 5-10 minute drive from the Klamath and Salmon Rivers. Both rivers had multiple water access trails that made it easy to find a suitable place for steelehead trout fishing. We were happy to end up catching a few rainbow trout given that we were novice trout fisherman. We did not do too much hiking on pre-stablished trails, but there were definitely trails nearby the cabin. The most memorable moment of our stay was when Max and Nena came over for a night and brought delicious smoked salmon and popcorn. They shared their life stories and the history of the surrounding area. We all had a great time talking, drinking, and eating in the warmth of the cabin. All five of us in our group would highly recommend Max and Nena's cabin."

  • Great Family Cabin - a Luxury to have the pool!

    "Our party of 8 had an amazing week at the Big Family Cabin. Even though the water levels were low there was still plenty of water to play in. Would have been a whole lot better if our boat would've agreed to run but apparently it was on vacation too. This gave us an opportunity to enjoy the pool. Mother Nature gave us an awesome thunder and lightening storm which made our stay even better. This home offers plenty of room for a larger group than what we had. We thoroughly enjoyed the ping pong table and the basketball hoop. One of the best treats was that the beds were very comfortable. The air conditioned home offered a great escape from the heat and made sleeping at night so restful. We have already placed our request for our stay for summer 2015 - can't wait!"

  • Perfect family get away

    "The Chalet was the perfect get away for our family. It was comfortable, clean and very relaxing. Being able to bring our dogs with us makes the family getaway complete! Jack is wonderful to work with and we would love to come back."

  • Greenville rental has everything

    "We rented this property to visit my family in Greenville. We have 3 kids so the size was perfect and the doors made it easy to on-the-go childproof. It is walking distance from the main part of Greenville. There is a small lawn area out back but you should keep an eye on the kids near the road. We did not need to bring as much stuff as we did. The house was stocked with everything one could need. Thank you for the lovely stay."

Shasta Cascade Travel Tips

The Shasta Cascades with Northern California Vacation Rentals

California is a state with diverse terrain. While the desert dominates Southern California, the mountain peaks and deep azure lakes of Northern California beckon to the outdoor enthusiasts. Lake Tahoe resides on the border between California and Nevada. It is usually an ideal destination for vacationers yet there is some place that offers even more. The Shasta Cascades of Northern California is considered a secret rendezvous for vacationers. Its pristine lakes, winter wonderland mountains, and Northern California cabins make for the perfect getaway. These cabins offer you kitchens, privacy, and adventure. With VRBO, you can choose from numerous Northern California vacation rentals to spend your trip enjoying the fruits California has to offer. Whether you want backcountry drives or a journey on world-class rivers, you have it all in the Shasta Cascades.

Driving to the Shasta Region

The Cascades are located in the northeastern or north-central region of California. There are sections of the mountain range which will border Oregon and Nevada, as well as the Central Valley. The main focus is that of Mount Shasta lying near the Trinity Alps. Interstate 5 is the most direct route to your luxury Northern California cabins if you are entering from the north or south. If you are originating from Nevada, there is Interstate 80 that takes you to Interstate 5, or highways 299 or 395 that will bring you into Mount Shasta lodging and the Cascades.

Historical Notes About Northern California

Travel in the earlier centuries was not as easy as our highways are today which is perhaps why Northern California in the early 19th century was little known. The Shasta Cascades had very few people traveling along the Siskiyou Trail from Oregon or from the San Francisco Bay area to reach the mountains. The first non-Native Americans to travel through the mountain peaks were the British and American fur trappers. The Spanish are said to have visited sometime around 1820. This early history was what eventually sparked the 1851 discovery of gold. Prospectors from the Gold Rush moved up the rivers searching for gold, creating settlements like Old Shasta, Portuguese Flat, Upper Soda Springs, and Weaverville.

Shasta State Historic Park is one place you may want to visit from your Northern California lodging. It makes for a wonderful day trip where you can backpack through the mountains, picnic around rivers, and learn about the mining town. The town once had 2,500 residents including miners and gamblers. If you do visit the historical park, you will need to step into the Old Courthouse which contains a number of relics from the Gold Rush. It also has 100 years of California Art depicting the region.

The Shasta Cascades offer Weaverville Joss House State Historic Park, Whiskeytown National Recreation Area, and Lassen Volcanic National Park. These three locations provide an abundance of history about the region and its people which is worth learning.

Lassen Peak and its Geological Significance

Northern California, especially the Trinity Alps and Cascade Range, is more about the outdoor adventures one can have than shopping and restaurants. The Northern California vacation rentals make it easy to make all your meals at home. With day hikes, you can picnic in a new area every day, watching the birds and wildlife. You can also enjoy lunch at your Northern California cabins and then participate in a range of activities, such as shorter hikes, whitewater rafting, and winter skiing. Lassen Peak lodging is perhaps one place you might like to view, whether it is from your cabin or along the trails that take you towards the top.

Lassen Peak or Mount Lassen is the southernmost active volcano. It is part of the Volcanic Arc that stretches from British Columbia. Lassen is 2,000 feet above sea level with a volume of a half-cubic mile. This makes it one of the grandest lava domes on planet Earth. Lassen is still active, and its last eruption occurred on May 22, 1915, devastating the area around it.

Dining in Mount Shasta and Weaverville

Often on vacation we do not feel like cooking our meals, even though our budget might demand it. If there are times you might like to dine out while in Northern California, you have the Best Western Tree House Motor Inn, Jack’s Grill, and C.R. Gibbs American Grille.
