About the property

Ranch House, 5 Bedrooms, 1.25 Baths, (Sleeps up to 8 but extra fee for over 6)

You will feel like you own your own ranch in the heart of the Old West

Water, water, water, every where water. Our Creek is Spring fed and our well abundant. Take long showers and enjoy the abundance of super clean, clear water.

This rental is a beautiful, unique and limited opportunity. Only one family or group will be able to take advantage of this offer at a time. It is like a Guest Ranch, but you have the place to yourself with solitude and privacy in a beautiful natural setting. Photographs just can not do it justice. There are spectacular views in all directions.

The ranch is in the heart of the Old West with numerous rivers and lakes nearby. It is 10 minutes North of downtown Mt. Shasta and 25 minutes South of Yreka. The McCloud River:45 minutes, The Upper Sacramento: 15 minutes, The Klamath (45 min.), the Trinity River (45 min.),the Pit River and Hat Creek (about one hour). Our on-site ponds abound in trophy size trout. A gin-clear, spring creek, full of trout, runs for 1 3/4 miles through the property. If you ever dreamed of helping your child catch a trout, this is the place to make real, that fantasy! The fishing is unsurpassed. To protect and preserve the Trout, only Barbless Flys are allowed in the ponds. It's a Catch and Release venue.

While extremely private, the ranch is less than five minutes from the city of Weed and 10 minutes from Mount Shasta City. Interstate 5 is 5 minutes away and the Weed airport is 10 minutes away.

If you want a secluded, and beautiful home base from which to explore Northern California and Southern Oregon this is an excellent venue.

The house lies at the end of a mile long, unpaved private country road. This secluded mountain valley provides spectacular 360 degree views. I often sit outside with a cup of tea or a cold drink and watch the views and wildlife as time seems to stand still. If you are an artist or bird watcher you will be captivated. The lighting is fantastic.

A small horse and cattle operation is run by two local cowboys who are also officers of the law in town. Their occasional presence on the range will help guard your privacy and will add a layer of security. Bill and Tim (policeman and Sheriff respectively) know the area well and can provide excellent information about the regions extensive recreational opportunities.

There is one main bathroom and an extra toilet in the laundry room area.

With all of the water around, it is amazing that there are no Mosquitoes or other biting insects to speak of. Having stayed at places where bug spray was a necessity, I believe this is a issue every vacationer should look into before committing to a rental property.

there is NO WiFi but cell phone reception is excellent for all Smart Phones and Tablets etc.

About Bill Broadhead

To own a trout fishing property has always been my dream. I never expected to find such a perfect location. I am an engineering consultant and expert witness. The Residual job stress melts away with each day at the ranch. While I have traveled the world, no place is more relaxing than a stay here at the ranch. I am married with three kids. My family loves our ranch vacations. We live in Southern California in the mountains above Santa Barbara. In the winters we come to the ranch to ski and board at Mount Shasta Ski Park, less than 30 minutes away.

Bill Broadhead purchased this house in 1997

Why Bill Broadhead chose Weed

Siskiyou county is at the heart of one of the best fishing, hiking and biking areas in the world. The air is clean and the sky blue. This area still holds the flavor or the Old American West. The small town honesty and hospitality are reminiscent of the values upon which the country was founded. If you want to get away from the stress of everyday life this is the place.

What makes this house unique

Seclusion and solitude prevail in a natural setting with the convenience of a town and Interstate freeway nearby. Crater Lake, Lava Beds National Monument and numerous other natural wonders make convenient day trips. This ranch is perfect for the family that loves the natural outdoors but wants to sleep comfortably indoors. Nearby museums and antique stores reflect the mystique of our American frontier days. The nearby town of Weed was established as a logging town. Other nearby towns sprang up with the great California gold rush.
