About the Property
House, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-9)
This 2000-foot (approximately) home features the Creek View bedroom with a California King sleigh bed and a sleigh daybed. A window seat looks out to Squaw Creek. Just before the bathroom is a huge walk-in closet. The master bath features a luxurious whirlpool tub.
The Shasta View bedroom contains a queen bed and an extra long twin with a spectacular view of Mt. Shasta, with an attached 1/2 bath. Both the California King and Queen beds feature Tempurpedic mattresses. Two rollaway twin beds are stored in a closet, for guests up to 200 lbs. Complete privacy for 4 people, we are licensed for up to 9. The bedrooms are at opposite sides of the house, perfect for 2 couples or a couple with children.
A large sunken Living Room with mountain views and a wood-burning stove, games, puzzles, a library and cable TV (35') and a DVD player help you enjoy your stay. A fabulous dining room and kitchen (with a 1920's Wedgewood stove, decorative use only) complete the charm of the home. Additionally there is large entry hall with a desk for your laptop, laundry room and two car garage. A full bath is accessible from the hall. There is now a WiFi modem onsite so there should be no problems connecting. There is a small TV with built in DVD player and cable in the Shasta View bedroom
The house has recently been remodeled with new carpeting, new hardwood sanding and finish, new wallpaper in the Master Suite and new tile in the baths. A few bugs are still being worked out. We are no longer accepting dogs because of some damage to the house and all the new finishes and carpeting. There is a boarding kennel in Mt. Shasta if you'd like your pet close. Some dogs that have been previous guests are exceptions.
Take a taste of McCloud home with you, be sure to bring empty jugs to fill with the famous McCloud spring water from the tap.

Photographs and Fine Art...
The photographs and fine art used to decorate Turning Creek are by local artists.
A section of our library offers paperback novels we have already enjoyed. Feel free to start a new novel from our library and take it with you to finish at your leisure. If you have one you have finished, feel free to leave it on the shelf.
We also have a library of books to enjoy but not take, including books about the area, fishing musings and children's books, and other eclectic choices.
* Anyone with young children please take note. Squaw Creek is beautiful and shallow but very cold and fast-running. Attendance to small children is imperative. There are flip-locks on the doors leading to the back, please use them and make sure an adult watches them at all times near the creek.

We are located in town, north of Hwy 89 but the property is 2.3 acres on a private drive with the upper portion of Squaw Creek running through the property. We are less than a 3/4 of a mile from Main Street and and around the corner from Hoo Hoo Park. This is not a Mill house.
Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: We fell in love with McCloud after my husband worked in this area as a land surveyor. After a vacation at Old Station we were driving to a college friend's house in Lake Shastina when Ian drove me around McCloud. I looked around and said, "I could live here". A month later I called him and in 2005 we bought our house, the one next door upstream. In 2006, Turning Creek came up for sale and we figured we would never get two houses side by side on the creek. I made the offer without my husband even seeing the place with his go-ahead. It closed on his birthday and we use it for family reunions and when our kids come up, or down or across. They are well spread out so that leaves plenty of times for guests at Turning Creek. I spend most of my time in McCloud while Ian still works in the Bay Area until I can get him to retire.
Why the Owner Chose McCloud, CA, USA:
Turning Creek is a beautiful blend of space and comfort with the feeling of living in the woods. A friend named it "Turning Creek" as she was thinking what the Native Americans would call it. The creek twists and turns on the property, from the Master Bedroom bay window the creek comes straight at you and then turns and continues straight for awhile.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The Creek. Gazebo. Tall older growth forest. Convenience of being in town yet feeling like you are miles away. On a private drive. Tempurpedic beds. 2.3 acres to spread out on. Landscaped on one side of the creek, wild on the other. Wildlife, including deer, squirrels, our bear who likes garbage and an occasional ottter going after the native trout in the creek. Large rooms. 2 ovens. Small TVs.(not kidding the largest is 30 something inches.) Cable, electricity and internet, though on site can sometimes go out in storms or accidents. Sitting in the Bay window seat looking at the creek. Standing on the bridge across the creek letting my cares wash away and go downstream. Fresh, cold spring water without any treatment straight from the tap. Nearness to so many naturals wonders and when you visit no one is there! I could go on. Winter power outages can occur and there is no cable or wifi (can set up you phone as a portable hotspot) during the winter season. Travelers will shovel their own snow but the private drive is plowed as well as the lower driveway if your car is not in it.
