  • Sheer perfection

    "We just returned home today after spending a week in this absolutely lovely home located in the Lake Almanor Country Club. Since there were only 3 of us (we, the parents and our adult daughter), we were looking for something smaller. We rented this home because it fit our needs, including having a window air conditioner. Truth be told, my husband, who grew up going to Lake Alamanor, was extremely nervous that I chose this home. He thought it looked old and a little run down. Once we arrived, all of his fears disappeared. This home is absolutely beautiful. It has vaulted ceilings and windows that face the trees and a decent, yet gorgeous view of the lake. Everything, and I mean everything (except food) has been provided. Cooking utensils, a wide variety of pots and pans, plates, glasses, etc is on hand. Lots of towels, blankets, sheets and pillows are provided, too. Beds, the sofas and easy chair are very comfortable. We only used it for a couple of hours, but they now have a flat-screened t.v. But, the best part was the cleanliness. This home was immaculate. No matter where I'm staying, I always travel with wipes so I can clean our lodging the moment we arrive. I didn't even pull out one wipe when we arrived and I did my inspections. We also appreciated the well-placed instructions throughout the house. They were useful without being obtrusive. We will DEFINITELY be coming back to the Plummers. It felt like our home away from home and no one wanted to leave."

  • Great Family Vacation Spot

    "This is a great cabin for a family vacation - very relaxing and low key. It is conveniently located across from the Rec center which hosts a bunch of different activities for kids and families: movie night, swim, pickle ball, and tennis lessons. Unfortunately, this year the water levels were not great for swimming. The property managers are wonderful and VERY helpful and responsive. Clean and comfy, but bare bones amenities so be prepared for a low tech experience:no dishwasher, only one bathroom on the ground floor (not easy for little ones during the night), WiFi intermittent, no telephone (cell service sketchy), and TV not positioned in a place for easy group viewing of movies. Although possible to do day trips/hikes to Lassen National Park, it is a good 1 hour away from the entrance of the park -- so its a long day of driving."

  • Gorgeous Lakefront Property

    "Our family just spent a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday here! The kitchen had absolutely everything we needed to make and serve a huge turkey dinner with all the fixings. There were five women in the kitchen at once working on the meal and there was plenty of space for all of us. Not an easy feat! The whole house is beautifully furnished and absolutely gorgeous, without feeling "stuffy". It's homey and comfortable, and it's obvious that the owners want their guests to feel welcome. My only concern before arriving at the house was that we have a small child, and stairs and toddlers don't go well together, but we brought our baby gate along with us and had no problems at all. We loved that there was an upstairs den area with tv, piano, and foosball table for the kids. There were numerous board games to play and lots of activities to do. The neighborhood was very quiet and we enjoyed several walks along the road and also on the beach of the lake. The master bedroom had a very comfy bed, gas fireplace, and doors leading out to the deck, which overlooked the lake. It also had a gorgeous bathroom with jetted tub and a large walk in shower, as well as a large walk in closet. The other bedrooms were equally as comfortable and well furnished. My favorite time of year to be at Lake Almanor has always been in the summer. The temperature is perfect and the lake is gorgeous and crystal clear, but this was a close second. We are talking about doing another trip to this beautiful home in the summer to enjoy boating, swimming, and water sports. We were hoping for snow on this trip and didn't get it....that is the only thing that could have made it any better! Thank you for such a wonderful vacation! Our family will remember it for years to come."

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.
