Recent Shasta Cascade property reviews
"We stayed with 4 teenagers for a few days, and the cottage was spacious, clean, and well equipped. The teens especially enjoyed the available board games and movies. There's a big table on the porch to have dinner outside with view of the lake. Access to the park is very convenient, with just a few minutes to drive to the entrance. We'll definitely try to book it again for our next trip to Lassen."Guest: Klaus S. Date of Stay: July 2014 Review Submitted: July 19, 2014View listing
"This is a cozy, comfortable place that is close to downtown Mt. Shasta. There's easy access to all the recreational activities the area offers. The house is beautifully decorated, the beds are comfy, and the yard is lovely and pet friendly. !"Guest: Lilly W. Date of Stay: April 2014 Review Submitted: April 28, 2014View listing
"We loved our stay in McCloud. It is a charming small town and the people are very friendly. We hiked, fished both the river and the lakes, took our Granddaughter to Hoo Hoo park and went on a daily walk to town to get an ice cream. Everywhere you go you see beautiful Mt. Shasta as the back drop, all the wonderful pine trees and what a wonderful site that was. The log cabin house was great!! it is a beautiful home that was even better then the pictures showed and was very comfortable. After our nightly walk, my granddaughter & I watched movies each night in the loft while my husband and son read downstairs. My husband & I sat on the front porch each morning and drank our coffee looking at the beautiful view. Alexa was great and answered all our questions. We will definitely be coming back to McCloud and hoped to rent the house again."Guest: Grammy Date of Stay: June 2014 Review Submitted: June 17, 2014View listing
"Came for an annual fishing/relaxation trip with my best friend and really loved it. The house was in great shape, clean and well furnished (the tv was newer than we thought from the picture and was great since we brought an xbox for evenings). But the real selling point is the amazing view from the deck over Lake Almanor. We fished right from the dock every morning and though we only caught 1 fish (a smallmouth bass), that was probably more to do with our lack of skill than the location as we saw plenty of fish jumping near us. The owners noted that the wind can come up quickly and that's advice to heed as getting off that dock when it's rocking and rolling is a bit more challenging than I'd have thought! :) We'll definitely be coming back."Guest: Doug H.

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.
