  • My Heaven

    "For starters, Dave and Nedra are the nicest people I have ever met. I feel like I have made a great friendship with them. Thanks to a cancellation, I had my chance to finally stay on the property. This is absolutely a home away from home. Thanks to the thoughtfulness of Nedra, I had the opportunity to take a 2nd visit to Old Station and it was sorely needed and appreciated more than anyone would know. This property is outstanding. It's peaceful and beautiful. Plenty of room for a "gang." With all the privacy you could ever ask for, this is a wonderful place to fish. We caught our limits on fish. It is obvious this property is immaculately kept and Dave and Nedra have great pride in it, as they should. There is stuff (spices, plates, hot chocolate, etc.) in the cabinets in the event you forgot something. The big screen television with Dish is amazing. Finally, a place with real television! The propane bar-b-q on the patio makes grilling meals so easy. The furniture and bedrooms have the most comfortable stuff you don't want to leave ad go home. The bathrooms and showers are like being at home. I will never stay anywhere else and will always accept additional says in the event someone needs to cancel. Thank you Nedra and Dave for having a property I can call "My slice of Heaven.""

  • Even better than the photos suggest

    "Our family just spent four days at this property. Our expectations were exceeded. The property is simply spectacular, with a magnificent location, awe-inspiring views, and beautiful furnishings. We have rented homes in a variety of places both in the US and in Europe and none has compared with the quality of this property. Highly recommended."

  • Great place to stay at Lake Almanor

    "Very comfortable and spacious accomodation. We loved the larger kitchen and ample seating in the dining room. The living room was roomy with very comfortable couches and excellent lighting. We loved the large deck with a outdoor seating for 6 and gas grill. The house stayed reasonably cool even with temperatures well into the 90s."

  • Awesome!!

    ""For Pause" is a beautiful home. It is cozy and comfortable and we felt right at home as soon as we walked in the door. It has everything you need for a relaxing vacation getaway. This was our first time to Graeagle but it won't be our last. There is more to do than we had time for. Dinner at Longboards and Cuccias was spectacular! Played golf at Plumas Pines Course. The drive to the Lakes Basin, Lake Sardine, Gold Lake is beautiful and coming back to "For Pause" after a day of adventure, sitting on the back porch, enjoying a glass of wine and breathing in the beautiful pine air, reflecting on our day was wonderful. We would highly recommend this home. You will not be disappointed. The owners were very nice 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.
