About the Property

Come explore BODHANA this Winter!

Mt. Shasta is majestic in any season, and along with Lake Siskiyou and the alpine lakes, the area is getting its share of snow! Check-out Mt. Shasta's Ski Park's website for "powder days" and other updates (the ski park is just 20 minutes away from Bodhana!) Furthermore, come participate in other alpine activities, like snowmobiling and nordic skiing (they have a Valentine's Day special in February)!

The Shasta Avalanche organization is a great resource for weather and avalanche conditions of the local terrain. Crucial information for those attempting winter ascents and those wanting to hike/snow-shoe the surrounding areas.

With breathtaking views, comfortable accommodations and year-round activities...Bodhana is a one-of-a-kind gem in Siskiyou County.

Perfect for large or small gatherings; this magical estate is ideal for reunions, retreats, birthday and anniversary celebrations, holidays, weddings, meetings, or a weekend family getaway.

This private 20-acre ranch is situated in beautiful Northern California and is accessible via train, plane or automobile! Amtrak stops in Dunsmuir, the historic railroad town 15 minutes away, Flights to Redding (1hr), Medford (1.5 hrs), Sacramento (3 hrs) are daily. Drive from the San Francisco Bay Area is (4 hrs) or Portland (5 hrs), Seattle or LA (9 hrs). Private planes can land at Mott (10 minutes) or Weed regional airports (20 minutes).

Mt. Shasta is home to many special events throughout the year which includes the historic 4th of July celebration, Mt. Shasta Summit Bike Race, the Shasta Taiko Festival, the Cool Nights Blackberry Music Festival. Mt. Shasta City is also a good launching point for near-by points of interest, like Pluto's Cave and Medicine Lake, or even the Oregon Shakespeare Festival in Ashland, OR! Every December, Santa and his elves are seen taking the sleigh around town…..Check our website for local happenings!

Fly-fish on the world famous Upper Sacramento and McCloud rivers or swim/boat in the pristine alpine lakes. There are three public golf courses nearby and plenty of outdoor exploring can be done in the three national forests that surround Mt. Shasta. The backcountry offers many trails to bike and hike! Castle Crags State Park is close by, as well as, access to the Pacific Crest Trail.

In Winter, enjoy Nordic skiing, alpine skiing/boarding, snowshoeing or snowmobiling (back-side of Shasta has many miles of trails!). The ski park is 20 minutes away. Prefer the warmth of a cozy home? Snuggle-up by the fire and read a book or watch a movie and stare at the mountain as the light changes throughout the day.

During spring and fall, enjoy the change of seasons in full glory. Come experience our quaint ‘hip’ mountain town in every season!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: Greetings! My name is Wendy and I had a dream to create a space where you could enjoy nature, dream and think. A place where healing occurs and kids run free to explore the world around them just like the good ol' days. Spent much of my career in the investment business in SF, grew up outside Chicago and I enjoy yoga, traveling and learning. I've travelled extensively worldwide and must say, Mt. Shasta ranks at the top of my list of places I could settle down and enjoy life.

Why the Owner Chose Mount Shasta, CA, USA:
Growing up in the Midwest, I missed the change of seasons and Mt. Shasta is glorious throughout the year. The people are so friendly and warm, the quaint mountain town is quite 'hip' and it is an easy, four hour drive from San Francisco. The area is ripe with outdoor activities all year long and it is not crowded like other California mountain towns!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The property was set up for small or large groups to enjoy. Sit and gaze at the mountain or enjoy the sounds of Wagon Creek flowing by while breathing the fresh air from the forest. Plenty to do and see right on the property. Swim in the pond, ride the zip line, hike the trail, have a ping-pong tournament, foosball or dance under the night sky. Read, meditate, play a game or catch up on some much needed rest. It's all here and available! We can also help with other outside services if needed. You name it, we'll try and help! I've had such wonderful feedback from all of our guest so far as to what a special place Bodhana is and how the pictures do not do it justice. Many have said it was their best vacation that they can remember. There is plenty of space on the property so you do not feel crowded and have room to roam. You can do as much or as little as you'd like. Town is a couple of miles away and has plenty of services, restaurants, stores if desired. If you are interested in unrehearsed living, come explore Bodhana!
