high praise for this high country home

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place for a family reunion or gathering of any sort. The pictures don't do the house justice excluding the spacious side deck where we got to sit and enjoy dinner under the market lights (nice BBQ as well) or the ample game loft upstairs. We made use of the 4.5 bathrooms and the 2,800 sq. ft. of log home (bocce ball on the lawn!).

The old logging town of McCloud is charming and we even found good eateries (Meat Market & Tavern, White Mountain Cafe). Don't miss the McCloud River Trail with its 3 waterfalls spanning 1.9 miles or Burney Falls.

This property is a great value and Alexa couldn't have been a more responsive and gracious host.

Wonderful, large cabin with lots of character!

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of four and there was plenty of room for us in this spacious home! Our two kids absolutely loved the upstairs bedrooms and play area and we all enjoyed the gorgeous living area and lawn/deck. The hosts were so lovely and took care of a problem that occurred right before we arrived very quickly. We can't wait to stay here again!

Great place to stay in a quirky part of N. California

  • 5 of 5

The house suited our needs perfectly. It's situated a short walk from "downtown" McCloud, restaurants and shops. Mt. Shasta can be seen out the front door. House has both dining in and out and is a short drive from the McCloud reservoir, a 45-minute drive from Burney Falls, and nearer to the McCloud River swimming holes. I said quirky because of the folks who can steer you to seers reporting strange visitors from another planet, able to leap tall buildings with a single bound, as well as "tall people" living inside the mountain. That sorta thing. The town of Mt. Shasta is a short drive away with its city park where you can fill water bottles at the Sacramento River's headwaters.

Always a great host base for our event!

  • 5 of 5

Richard and Alexa continue to share their wonderful McCloud home with us for a golf tournament we attend each year. The house suits a fairly large group very well, providing terrific isolation right in the heart of town. The deck and lawn areas are great for outdoor visits or just relaxing. This has become our home-away-from-home, if only for a weekend, every year.

Really wonderful log cabin stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a really good time at this beautiful log cabin. The place was very clean. It was an amazing stay and I couldn't believe how well maintained the house is. We had two families stay at the house and we have plenty of room.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time and enjoyed our stay at the Smith's log cabin. McLoud is a small California town and all the locals are very nice and helpful. The cabin is perfectly located between Lake Shasta and Mount Shasta and only minutes away from the McCloud Falls. We will definitely try to rent this property again. Thank you very much for letting us stay.
