"This was a very nice, clean, and well maintained cabin. We went here for a family reunion and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. I look forward to going again in the future and would definitely recommend this place to others."Guest: Roland H. Date of Stay: June 2014 Review Submitted: June 16, 2014View listing
"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."Guest: Anya Date of Stay: August 2014 Review Submitted: September 3, 2014View listing
"12 of us, ranging in age from 4 to 68, spent a week at Hansen's Lake Vista and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The house was very clean when we arrived. It is very nicely furnished but not so fancy as to prevent you from making yourself at home. The large back deck pictured on this site was wonderful and we spent a lot of time there. We also enjoyed the large lawn that runs from back of house to lake. Not only is it lovely but it was a good place to enjoy outdoor games. We had a boat so made good use of the dock and lake even though there was quite a bit of wind that made boating problematic the last few days of our stay. We only ate out one night and had good pizza at Paul Bunyon's on the Peninsula. Other than that, we cooked basic meals in the kitchen which was adequately supplied with utensils for our simple needs. The rooms and room sizes worked very well for us so we weren't constantly tripping all over one another. There are many board games there as well as a kayak and paddleboat, both of which we used. The hot tub had just stopped working when we got there and the parts needed did not arrive by the time we left. Not a problem for us. There is enough room to park a few cars (we had 4) and even a boat trailer. The owner answered all questions promptly and there is a "manager" that lives nearby in case you have questions while you are there. I would definitely stay there again and would certainly recommend it to friends."Guest: Dawn Steiner Date of Stay: August 2014 Review Submitted: August 21, 2014View listing
"Gorgeous place away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. You can watch deer from the deck. They come right up and are not scared of your voice. Owner was very helpful and quick to respond."Guest: country girl Date of Stay: November 2014 Review Submitted: November 12, 2014View listing
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.
