Recent Shasta Cascade reviews

  • Wonderful home in Shingletown

    "This home is lovely, comfortable, and very well equipped. It is spacious and has absolutely everything you may need. The home is in a beautiful, quiet area and is perfectly located for exploring the wonders of the Lassen area. It is also about 40 minutes from Redding and an hour from Shasta so there are plenty of adventures nearby. If you just want to relax and stay home, this house is perfect. Bright, clean, well kept and cozy. It really is one of the nicest places we saw in the area. I highly recommend it."

  • One of a kind!

    "This home has incredible views of the entire Valley and mountains. The kids loved the huge yard for horseshoe games and volleyball. The bunk area upstairs was great for them to stay all together and get away from the parents and hang out. The beds were comfortable and bathrooms were well appointed. The house was meticulously clean. The natural well water was very refreshing and gave us a break from the chlorinated water in the city. We had plenty of room for everyone, and the extra large decks in the back and front and hot tub made this place one of a kind. Thank you Johna for your kind hospitality."

  • Awesome week - beautiful

    "A wonderful experience all around, beautiful house, great weather, fantastic lake, awesome private dock, great private area, great owners. Very family friendly home and grounds, So beautiful to sit on the deck overlooking the lake and enjoy the sunset after a day of water skiing and boating. We brought our own boat, launched it in the back yard and kept in on the private dock for the whole week, so convenient. Overall very nice, This exceeded my expectations. Now, if I could just figure out how to catch the trophy sized trout that are in abundance in this lake... next time."

  • Great Launchpad for Lassen

    "Beautiful location nestled in the woods that is right off the Hwy that leads into Lassen National Park- yet so quiet! The creek running along the back of the property is more like a small river and just beautiful. Our kids loved it. It is still cool in this area in May and was too cold to actually get in the water but we are looking forward to coming back in the summer to do some wading. You would definitely want to keep an eye on younger children. The house was fully stocked with pantry essentials like salt, sugar, and spices as well as ll the utensils we needed to cook up the groceries we bought in Red Bluff on the way up. There was plenty of firewood ready for the stove that kept us nice and toasty as we watched movies from Michael's selection in the living room. It was a blessing to be able to bring our dog along to share the vacation with us and she gave it all four paws up. Michael was very responsive and helpful."

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.
