Guestbook comments from the owner

Good Morning…

I am trying to get back into the swing of life after such a wonderful stay… I am trying to open this to give my remarks but it will not let me so hoping you get this..

Your cabin was absolutely awesome… What a beautiful place… So quiet and it had everything we needed to prepare meals/cook outs for the family. The kids enjoyed exploring your yard alone, not to mention Lassen having snow in July! The setting was awesome so quiet and homey…. We could have just moved right in and never looked back…. Thank you for having such a wonderful place an sharing it..

A very cozy and convenient place to stay if you're exploring Lassen Volcanic Park and its vicinity

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house for two nights and absolutely loved it. The owner put a lot of effort to make it feel like an ancestral rural home in the woods you never had while comfortably housing two families of three. The location is just a few miles away from the Lake Manzanita entrance to Lassen Volcanic Park so it was very easy for us to move around and explore. Thank you Mary for having us at our place!

Beautiful Home - Easy Access to Lassen

  • 5 of 5

The house is really beautiful and the photos don't do it full justice. Authentic log cabin with rustic charm! Everything was clean and decorated perfectly. Full kitchen set up as well. Wood stove in the living room was our favorite room to gather as a group and play games by the fire. Note: There is minimal to no phone access or wi-fi on the property, as listed, so be committed to truly zero phone access while there. You do get service in town though, a five minute drive away. Lassen is a short drive away and the sledding hill (Eskimo Hill) is a great place to sled in the winter! We really enjoyed our time.

Convenient and quiet place, just the way we like

  • 5 of 5

We arrived late in the day and found the place very cosy and welcoming. Plenty of couches and sitting areas, great kitchen area with open space. The feeling of being in a log cabin was very pleasing.

Showers, bathrooms, and other amenities, and the rest of the cabin were clean and pleasing.

We recommend the cabin near Shingletown.

pleasant but could have been better

  • 4 of 5

overall stay was good. home was in good condition, with good kitchen and all that. quiet and as advertised, my only complain is with the maintenance of the unit. lights in the front porch by the main door entrance werent working, lights in the parking space werent working, lights at the back porch were very dim at best. there are lights installed but they just don't work; we visited this home when there was a bear and mountain lion alert in lassen national park, this place is around 12 miles or so away from it; we were traveling with small dogs and it gets very dark after sunset; not having adequate lighting was a disappointment. Also, unfortunately, we were traveling during hot days, we only found 1 small table fan, just one; in the entire house.

Owner's Response: We did communicate prior to your arrival and you were informed that there have NOT been any bear or lion sightings here, they have NEVER been in the garbage, which would be a sign of their presents. There are actually 2 movable fans in the closets or storage areas, in addition to a swamp cooler. Also, night time temperatures are 45-55, you can open the windows to cool the home down and close them in the morning and the log walls are great insulation to keep the home cool. I was not aware of the outside light being inoperable and will rectify this. I hearing your real concern as being the wildlife. Perhaps you were worried that they may enter through the windows at night, therefore not feeling comfortable to open them and let the night temperature cool the home. Yes, this home is in the "pines" therefore no street lights, and it is dark at night. Sorry for your disappointment. Did you see any lions or bears?

very comfortable home

  • 4 of 5

I stayed at this home will working in the area. The home was comfortable and well furnished. The only problem I encountered was not being able to get the dvd player to work on the tv. I don't know if someone moved some wire or what happened , but I could not get it working. No bid deal since I did not have much down time. I would recommend this to anyone needing a reasonably priced comfortable place to stay.

Nice experience, but could have been even better

  • 3 of 5

I found it is spacious, has nice kitchen and dining area. It has good parking area, woods around. This is my first stay at a log home & hence found it interesting. There were no big surprises.

Some things we didn't like:

- We spent a lot of time getting the propane based heaters work, but were no successful. We had a figure out that an electric heater was kept inside a bedroom closet in ground floor.

- There was an attached home just behind this home, which caught me by surprise. I was expecting just this home in a big lot. May be it is written somewhere in the VRBO property webpage I might have overlooked.

- Wifi password was not found in the instruction booklet. There was no cell phone service at the home for us to call the owner for help. It could have been helpful for us to research about local places.

- The TV stopped worked after we pressed some button & we couldn't get it working again because it seemed like a very old model (probably from 1990s). So, we didn't have the TV for kids for entire stay even though there was some DVD collection in the home.

- We couldn't find soaps in bathrooms.

Hope this helps.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your comments, they are extremely helpful for me to know what to address at the home. In response to the your comments the following issues are listed in VRBO:(important to read ALL of the listing amenities) long term tenant in guest home; wi fi password (also listed on information sheet on the frig). Baseboard electric heaters are located in the living room, dinning room, master bedroom, both bathrooms and 1 of the downstairs bedrooms. The 1 downstairs bedroom has the portable heater in the closet. TV is older, I plan to update it. However, all remotes work the same, so even with a later model TV the programming for the DVD would work the same. I agree an updated home book is needed and is in progress. Some cell providers do work on site, see note in listing. If you EVER need to reach me- just go 2 blocks out the highway and call. Mary
