About the Property
House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)
As always, the front porch swing with it's view of Mt. Shasta awaits you. Ice cold tap water quenches your thirst and cools you on those hot summer afternoons and a toasty wood stove (wood provided) warms your snow played out body. This updated historic mill house has an incredible kitchen, three bedrooms, three full baths, and easy access to all that the Shasta area has to offer.
Shasta Rainbow House is pet friendly with a fenced yard and plenty of space. It can be whatever you desire: a hiking base camp, fly-fishing retreat, romantic weekend getaway, or week long family reunion site. It's a great spot for fisherman, skiers, snow shoe'rs, rock hounders, quilters, mushroom hunters, square dancers, mountain bikers, kayakers, and bocci ball players.
The house has been outfitted for comfortable, casual living. The rooms are spacious and well appointed. Books, board games, and playing cards stock the shelves and, yes, there is Sat TV as well as a DVD player and an iPod dock. The front porch, with it's view of Mt. Shasta, is a great spot for morning coffee or sunset reflections. A fully fenced yard surrounds the house and the herb garden provides fresh seasonings throughout the summer. The well stocked cook's kitchen is a delight to prepare meals in or you can BBQ during summer on the patio.
Minutes from all sorts of recreation, the Rainbow House is the perfect place to enjoy the clean air and coveted waters of Mt. Shasta. All you need to bring are friends and food!

Shasta Rainbow House is a fantastic central base camp for winter sports (skiing, snowshoeing, and snowmobiling) and summer fun (fly fishing the legendary waters of the Cascades: McCloud, Fall, Pitt, Klamath, and Sacramento Rivers as well as the abundant lakes and reservoirs in the area). If that's not enough, there's hiking, rock hounding, mushroom hunting, square dancing, quilting, and just being with family and friends. The house is two blocks from the Mercantile, the hub of 'downtown' McCloud, and a few more to the dance hall. Bocci Ball courts and baseball fields are available nearby at Hoo Hoo Park.
Recently renovated with refinished pine floors, the house has maintained it's charm with the original pine counters and cabinets, cozy wood stove (wood provided), porch swing, and view of the mountain. Few kitchens are better stocked. Each of the three bedrooms has it's own full bathroom with dual water heaters. There's a hand stamped patio for backyard BBQing and two separate fenced areas for canine companions.
Year Purchased: 1998
About the owner: McCloud has been my getaway place for years. My mother was born and raised here and my family camped here often when I was a child. It's a quiet and peaceful place with abundant activities. It's a pleasure to share McCloud's beauty and fun with others.
Why the Owner Chose McCloud, CA, USA:
This old house, probably built around 1908 typifies the traditional mill house with modern conveniences. It's well located away from the highway and just short walks to downtown, the park, or the local trails. There is a pleasing view of Mt Shasta from the porch and back yard. You will find it a quick and pleasant getaway spot from the bay area or valley, a simple drive up I-5.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Three Bedrooms with Three Full Baths Kitchen like no other in town Fenced yard and view of Mt. Shasta
