Recent Shasta Cascade reviews
"I have to say that is was one of our most relaxing vacations that we've had in a long time. The view of the lake from the master bedrooms was specular. The pictures and descriptions of the home are exactly as they are posted on the website. Roomy, loved the openness of the kitchen and living room. We had 6 adults and never felt crowded. Kitchen was well equipped with all your small appliances from crockpot to ice cream maker, glass bowls, baking pans, wine glasses and too many other items to list. No issues with the internet connections. The home was clean and well maintained and well stocked with linens. Access to the lake was right out the back door. We enjoyed the Kayaking and canoeing."Guest: Jackson Date of Stay: August 2014 Review Submitted: October 13, 2014View listing
"What an amazing property and amazing stay! We stayed in the nautical cottage, which is a detached building. The view of the river was peaceful and beautiful. The cottage itself was well designed and beautifully decorated. We had absolutely everything we needed. Although the owner also lived on the property, she read us perfectly - responding promptly when we had a question but respected our privacy. We walked to three different Redding landmark restaurants for dinner, making this a fantastic location for us. It was a the relaxing vacation we needed. We'll even be looking at Redding as a potential retirement spot when we're ready in a few years. In the meantime, we'll be back to this VRBO!"Guest: CalSooner Date of Stay: September 2014 Review Submitted: September 21, 2014View listing
"Home description was accurate, the owner was helpful in giving local store recommendations for wifi connection, instructions for the house, etc., no problems with the property, and would recommend (especially to outdoors lovers who do not have pets) for a low technology vacation."Guest: Claudia T.

"We were a group of 3 families with 3 young kids. We were amazed to see how good the house was from all aspects - views, rooms, deck, bedrooms, living room etc. The photos uploaded in vrbo do not do justice to what they are in real. Both Kraig and Heather were extremely nice to interact with. I am sure I will be reaching out to them again and again for our upcoming trips to that area :)"Guest: viks Date of Stay: November 2013 Review Submitted: December 4, 2013View listing
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.
