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..

Quiet and enjoyable, as promised!

  • 5 of 5

Two couples stayed for a weekend, to take advantage of nearby outdoor activities. We really enjoyed this home. The kitchen was extremely well stocked, and you could have easily accommodated up to the 10 people advertised if the sleeping arrangements worked out. The cabin was easy to heat, and felt very homey. The surrounding woods were peaceful, just as advertised. We all agreed that we would stay again. Extra bonus to have the pet fee and the cleaning fee included in the nightly rate, without all the extra add-on charges. Mary was easy to work with and flexible with our arrival time.

Perfect place to be a part of nature

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here. It was the perfect location for exploring Lassen. Check in/out was easy and the cabin was cozy and comfortable. The wifi router was in the house (not shared with neighbor) and worked great for our needs.

Wonderful Home in a peaceful setting!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the log home in Shingletown. Despite the easy access from the Highway, it still feels like we are away from it all. This is a perfect location to explore Lassen, Burney Falls, etc. The home is very spacious, well-appointed and nicely decorated. It could easily accommodate our group of 4 adults and 3 kids. Mary was also very accommodating in adjusting our travel dates.

The spotty WiFi signal is the only minor quibble I have with the home. It can perhaps be improved by using wireless repeaters downstairs. Also, the Wifi login/password could have been displayed/written down somewhere. I had to look it up on the router.

Overall, it was an excellent stay and we will definitely be back if we are in the area.

Good location, nice looking cabin but not clean

  • 3 of 5

We stayed here for three nights while we were visiting Lassen Volcanic. We arrived early and the cleaning people were still there. I think they rushed so we could get in because it was not clean at all. There were no towels of any kind but luckily the padlock on the closet was left undone so we could help ourselves. There were coffee spills on the kitchen counter, hair on the bathroom floor and lots of cobwebs. We did speak to the owner about this and she apologized but when you pay $95 for a cleaning fee you expect the place to be clean when you arrive. It didn't even smell like any cleaning products were used. On the plus side the cabin itself is nice looking and you can't beat the location if you're visiting the park.

Owner's Response: The guest did arrive early without prior notice. I have shared this review with the cleaners and she has stated that it will not happen again. FYI the cleaning fee is included in the nightly rate, not in addition to.

Cozy house

  • 5 of 5

The house is cozy and has lots of open space around for privacy. Due to crazy hot weather this week, the little swamp cooler had a learning curve. It works more like a fan, drawing in cooler night air...don't leave it on in the heat of the day. (Our mistake!) I'm sure in normal weather (not in the 100's), the evenings in the cabin are wonderful. The cabin is in a great location to explore Lassen! Have fun!

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!
