Beautiful, peaceful two-story wood cabin with great deck, outside fire pit and BBQ. Two bedrooms and bath upstairs with stand-up shower. Master bedroom and bath downstairs with tub shower. One acre of huge pines with Bailey Creek within 100 yards. Inside laundry and garage, satellite and WIFI, and a well-appointed kitchen and dining room. As with my other 5-star cabin (#704934), all the comforts of home but with the added allure of crisp cool air and the sounds and smells of nature just outside your window. Magnificent Lassen Volcanic National Park a quick and easy 9 miles away.

About Nancy Ekelund
Born and raised in nearby Redding, I spent many summers at my grandparent's cabin in Shingletown. Those memories are stand-outs for me because of the sounds, smells, and sights of the huge trees, crisp clean air, and natural creeks I once loved. After living in southern California for many years, I moved back to my roots in Redding and opened a private Optometry practice. The idea of owning a cabin in Shingletown as a getaway became a dream fulfilled in 2014 (see cabin rental #704934). I had a great time re-decorating that first cabin and making it a shared place for others to enjoy. When this cabin came on the market several months ago, I couldn't resist it either....
Nancy Ekelund purchased this Cabin in 2016
Why Nancy Ekelund chose Shasta County
I fell in love with the wood in this cabin, and its slightly more secluded feel (compared to my other rental). It required much work and effort to get it outfitted in a way I think folks would enjoy, but the bones were great.....and I've grown to love its 80's tile!! This will be its first season as a rental, but if all goes as my other cabin has, I think you'll have a wonderful, restful time here. Sharing that feeling is certainly my goal...... With gratitude, Nancy

A wonderful getaway!
Our family enjoyed our stay at the cabin. It was very clean and the beds were comfy. The kids had a great time riding bikes in the driveway. We were a quick drive to lassen park and enjoyed exploring the park. Would definitely recommend!
Best VRBO Ever!!
My husband and I spent our 39th Wedding Anniversary here and we could not have had a more relaxing, enjoyable stay! The cabin does not have neighbors too close by with the woods surrounding it. Nancy thought of everything...even a toy and bone for our Golden Retriever! We have stayed in over 30+ VRBO's and this was absolutely the best one we have ever stayed at. The décor, amenities, cleanliness and inviting ambiance were spot on! Our $200 deposit was returned the day after we got home. We look forward to returning for our 40th Wedding Anniversary ...if not sooner!! :)
Wild Turkey is a GEM in No CALI! Exceptional comfort, well stocked and easily accessible to Lassen Volcanic NP. We enjoyed our visit and would recommend this VRBO/Home Away to anyone seeking a venue in this area. In addition, if we would revisit the area, we would start our search our a location with Nancy's fine property. Mgracias!
This is one of those cabins that I hesitate to review simply because that way others will find out about it. The charm, beauty and practical design of this gem is beyond description. Loved the "cabin style" decor and "creature comforts." Kitchen was superbly laid out and equipped. My family of four with two small kids found endless amusement and playspaces in and around the cabin. I could go on and on, but instead I hope to come back again and again.
Relaxing, clean, comfortable, PERFECT
Thank you for once again allowing us to enjoy your cozy cabin in Shingletown. We visited earlier this year in April and we were so happy to be able to schedule another visit this week.
We were able to visit Lassen this time but really enjoyed sitting outside and enjoying the new landscaping, comfortable lounge chairs and the wildlife, squirrels, blue jays and a gray cat.
We were so happy to be back again, thank you for your hospitality.
The cabin is immaculately maintained and very well appointed both inside and outside. We can't think of anything missing. The owner thought of everything, including a lovely gift basket. After being on the road from Florida , it was the perfect location to relax. We enjoyed visiting the park but especially enjoyed coming back to the solitude and the cabins peaceful setting and amenities.
The attention to every detail was appreciated. Sandy & Greg
Lassen Park with its many amazing sites and trails is an easy 9 miles to the entrance. Manzanita Lake inside the Park provides a leisurely day of fishing, swimming, or sunning. Burney Falls is a worthwhile hour drive, and Turtle Bay Exploration Park is a 45 minute drive to Redding. Or....just kick back and lay in the hammock and listen to the sway of huge pines....and do little else!
