House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)
- english, American
McCloud has been my getaway place for years. My mother was born and raised here and my family camped in the area 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.
Mimi purchased this House in 1998
Why Mimi chose McCloud
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.

Totally stocked kitchen. Nice house and yard
Wow, I guess you could call this a "triple master" house since all three bedrooms have private bathrooms. Easy walk to charming downtown McCloud, all fenced for pets or little ones to play. Did a day of snowmobiling (Fun Factory) and skiing with family. Clean and cozy! We will be back!
wonderful host and home
Great communications with Mimi. Checking in and out was very convenient. Nice to have 3 bathrooms. Comfortable beds and spacious kitchen is a plus! Would rent again if in the area.
It was well maintained and very homey
It was easy to be there. Everything we needed from the baby channel to a high end stove were there.
Great place for a family get together
Was in town to officiate my nieces wedding at the McCloud Mercantile the weekend of November 10-12 and needed a place for my wife and I, our 2 daughters and their significant others and our Yorkie Buddy. This place fit the bill. The 3 beds/3 baths worked great in the mornings allowing all of us enough space to get ready for each day. Loved the wood stove and the well appointed / stocked kitchen. The heater in the living room was also super efficient. The only drawback in this place was the lack of heat in the bedrooms which aren't ducted to the heating system but that was remedied fairly easily with the abundance of extra blankets provided.
Thanks Mimi for allowing us to use your beautiful home. Would recommend it to anyone.
Glad my place fit the bill. Wish you had called me about the bedroom temps so I could have let you know to open the interior doors, keep the ceiling fans on low to circulate heat, and have toasty bedrooms throughout by bedtime. Between the Monitor heater, the wood stove (wood provided at no charge), and the gourmet kitchen range, the house can get too warm! When it's time to turn in, with doors shut, that old house holds temps well and, with the down comforters, usually I usually have to shed covers.
I have added those tips to my Winter Bulletin announcement.
Super pet friendly!
If you are like me, my dogs are part of my family. It is hard to find such a wonderful place that appreciates pets! There is a nice sized totally fenced yard to keep your pets safe. From the moment we walked in, we absolutely LOVED the home! June had the heat on for us (it was about 25 degrees outside!) Each of the 3 bedrooms has its own bath. The kitchen is HUGE and has everything you need - from pots and pans to a large number of spices. It was nice to be able to find anything you needed. There is also a wood stove and this owner supplies the wood for you! If you stand on the front porch, you'll see the majestic Mt. Shasta staring right back at you. It's so close, you think you could touch it. Just about 4.5 miles down the road you'll find the ski park and the cross country/snowshoeing area. The town of McCloud is adorable with its cool shops and historical buildings. About 9 miles up the road are the McCloud Falls which are absolutely beautiful. Lots of other attractions nearby as well - Lake Siskiyou, Mt. Shasta, golfing and world class fishing. The owner, Mimi, is fantastic to work with. She is very prompt with her replies to your email. You will not be disappointed, guaranteed. On a scale of 1 to 10, I give this home a 20!
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.
