Recent Shasta Cascade reviews

  • A wonderful property - Wonderful hosts.

    "This lovely property is everything that is described in the posting! It is beautifully maintained, extremely well stocked and the owners were exceptionally responsive to us. It property was well located for trips to Redding, Lassen and all of the tourist attraction in the area. We visited Shasta Caverns (highly recommended), Lassen Park (too big to see in a short visit, but interesting), Burney Falls (worth the trip) and enjoyed several days just relaxing in this lovely home and location. I would recommend this property to anyone who is interested in staying in the Lassen/Shasta area. The home is very large and very comfortably accommodated 5 people and it could do 7. It is too large for a couple so I didn't recommend it for a Romantic getaway. It does have ramps so it could accomodate disabilities as it has two bedrooms and a bath on the ground floor. A car is a must as it is located in a fairly remote area."

  • Best family vacation!

    "Lake Shasta is the perfect get-a-way location! The home was magnificent, beautifully decorated and the view off the deck towards Lake and the mountains was breathtaking! Everyone enjoyed good night's sleep on all beds. Lots of comfort. Also, we cooked most of our meals; the kitchen was well stocked with supplies (dishes, pans etc.); loved the way it was set up so some could sit around the kitchen bar while all the action was going on! Thanks, Ken and Ashley, for some awesome family time. I personally enjoyed feeling somewhat isolated away from the crowds...We all had a great time fishing, cave exploring, and hiking. Funny our computers and cell phones were never used. We sure made some great memories, and the beauty and comfort of your home contributed greatly!"

  • spectacular trinity river

    "If you are looking for a lovely 3 bedroom house, fully equipped, and across the street from a great fishing spot, this is it. The owners are generous, sweet, and nearby and can take care of your needs. I woke up everyday and marveled at the beauty of this location."

  • 5-star mountain getaway for two

    "My wife and I had an amazing time here! The loft was very comfortable and clean and everything was in good working order. The location was perfect - close to town, but far away enough to feel very peaceful. Greg and Carolyn were so nice and friendly to us that we felt right at home. They also were helpful in giving us the insider's scoop on things to do/places to eat in the areas. Basically, we can't say enough about this place, and especially about Greg and Carolyn. We would definitely recommend this place to friends and family!"

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.
