Recent Shasta Cascade reviews

  • Cozy apartment at the top of the detached garage provides privacy w/ Bidwell Park across the street

    "I stayed in this cozy apartment with my 84 year old mother and her friend. Though there were stairs to climb into the apartment above the detached garage, there was a fine hand railing. We loved the old fashioned kitchen (no dishwasher) and bathroom and the bedroom/living area was spacious. The trees in the yard are arboretum quality and Bidwell Park across the street made for a tremendous setting. There is freeway noise, but it really did not bother us and I opened windows for fresh air. I would recommend this rental to friends and family."

  • Nice spot and a nice house

    "As other's have noted, this is a nice house very convenient to Lassen Volcanic National Park. We stayed there four days and went to the park easily each day. It's a good house for kids since it's all on one floor, has games to play and is pretty well child proofed already.d There is cable TV and wifi to entertain you in the evenings. There is also a firepit outside and a working wood stove inside. We didn't use the deck, but there is a nice one in front with an eating area and a hammock. The front yard has a small grassy area and plenty of parking. Across the street is a small pond and a big field for playing ball games on. The road is very quiet and while there are houses next door on each side, we didn't see or hear anyone when we there. There is a small grocery store about 10 miles away in Shingletown that has a surprising selection. If you are coming from the bay area, there is a big Safeway in Anderson close to where you get off I5. The kitchen is pretty well stocked for the kinds of meals you are likely cooking on vacation. Having laundry is convenient too. The master bedroom is on the other side of the house from the other two, which is good if you want the privacy, but maybe an issue if you have small kids and want to be right next to their rooms. We liked it!"

  • Great vacation spot

    "This was a great place for my wife and I to meet up with my daughter and grandchildren. Having bedrooms and bathrooms on two levels made for comfortable living. The huge deck, great view of Lake Almanor, and the sunny, dry weather made for an excellent vacation. The cabin/house is well-equipped, clean, attractive and in a nice location near recreation areas and great hiking in Lassen National Park. We had a wonderful time."

  • Happy New Year

    "We like to come to the lake for New Year's - no crowds, beautiful views, very relaxing. We immediately felt comfortable and settled in, as if we'd been going to Uncle Johnnie's for years. The house is very clean, well equipped, and has a nice floor plan. It was very cold outside but we were always warm. The owners were pleasant to work with."

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.
