About Kris McInnes
Hi, my name is Kris and I have just started managing this property for my family. We have lived in the Shingletown/Viola area for close to 12 years, and we are pleased to share this beautiful home and area with our friends and guests. For those guests who have stayed with us before, it is my intention to maintain the level of customer service and the quality of your stay you have enjoyed with previous visits. For our new guests, we hope you will love this special house and the beauty that surrounds it.
What makes this House unique
While this house sleeps 10, there is still ample opportunity to enjoy some "me" time during your visit. The house has four deck areas for visiting, eating, reading or just some quiet time. The creek area provides the perfect napping spot - the sound of the running water provide a zen-like atmosphere for an afternoon nap, or a fun place to wade and pick up rocks. In the evenings, enjoy the fire pit and the clear, star filled sky. S'mores, anyone?

This home and the property were absolutely gorgeous! The photos don’t do it justice! Exceptionally clean and stocked with anything and everything you could need! You can tell the owner takes very good care of the home and cares for her guests. My family had a wonderful time relaxing and enjoying the deck out back! We enjoyed visiting Lassen Park ( 10 min drive) and Burney Falls (45 min drive) while we stayed at the home. But my favorite place was the house! We didn’t want to leave! Lol It’s just a very comfy and peaceful place to enjoy a vacation away from it all. Do get groceries ahead time as there isn’t a major grocery store within 30-45 mins away. We stocked up before we arrived and the owner did send me message before hand about that. We were able to find things at the nearest store in Shingletown though so if you forget something not to worry it’s just a 10-15 min drive away. We can’t wait to come back and enjoy this beautiful home again! Thank you for sharing this beautiful property!
Amazing Family Trip
The property and care from the owner was spectacular. My college roommate and I got our two families together to do some hiking, play board games and have meals together. We were so pleased when we arrived and the home in the private setting was stunning. Bread had been baked in the kitchen and all the necessary amenities were there. I had spoken with the owner through vrbo a few times and she was lovely to work with. The creek in the back is beautiful... Too rapid for kids to play in but I imagine it's a fishermans dream to have in the backyard. Would definitely love to come visit again. Thank You Kris!
Wonderful house near Mt Lassen
Everything was terrific about this property- clean, comfortable, well equipped house, beautiful stream, close to great outdoor experiences.
Best place to stay by Lassen Volcanic Park!!
This home was beautifully decorated, exceptionally clean, well stocked with dishes/pots/ pans, and well located to the park. The stream in the backyard was absolutely lovely, making the backyard a peaceful place to rest after hiking. The owner even placed citrus candles on the outside tables for us. This house was obviously very well managed; better than almost any other rental we’ve been to! Can’t say enough good things about this house. I only wish it was closer to my home so I could come more often.
This property was absolutely amazing! A beautiful, spacious and meticulously decorated cabin with the most lovely and magical backyard space by the creek. The close location to the park can’t be beat. It was the perfect property for an intimate family reunion, and definitely felt like “home” for the 5 nights we were there. We never met the owner in person yet she was available via text or email whenever we needed her. And the delicious homemade bread was the perfect welcome! We can’t wait to return to this oasis of a cabin one day.
I usually stay at vacation rentals when I travel and this is one of my favorite home. I love the high ceiling, the open layout of the house and the beautiful outdoor area in the back of the property, which has an array of seating options. What makes this place so special for me is the beautiful creek that runs along the property. I enjoyed relaxing at this home just as much as (if not more than) exploring the nearby Lassen Volcanic National Park.
Shingletown, a short drive from Viola, offers services such as grocery stores, ATM, and a medical center open Monday through Friday.
