About shannon giles

Todd and Shannon Giles are the owners of the 'River House' vacation rental. We live on the property in our home with our two kids, two dogs and two cats. This is a family that loves where we live and would like others to enjoy the beautiful setting on the Sacramento River in the cottage on our property.

Perfect Labor Day weekday!

  • 5 of 5

Jonathan's Trout Lodge was the perfect hideaway for my wife and me while we visited family in the area. The bed was comfortable and the furnishings completed the "fishing lodge" motif. Shannon met us the first day but Dweeba, the wiener dog, greeted me nearly every morning for the treats I had for him.

Great Place To Stay In Redding

  • 5 of 5

Exceeded our expectations! My wife and I love this place. We came to Redding to visit our Great Granddaughter and was so happy to have such a great place to call home while we were there. The owners are more than accommodating and we loved the dogs and were happy to give them treats. The view is spectacular and very relaxing. We stayed in Jonathon's Trout Lodge, the lower cottage but checked out the upper unit and would stay in either. We are Seniors so prefer the lower so we don't have to take the luggage up stairs. Love Shannon, such a nice person! We will definitely stay here again when we come back! We also got in some sight seeing while we were there, plenty to see and do in and around the Redding area.

Great spot

  • 5 of 5

My brothers, father and I stayed at the cottage recently for a mancation fishing trip. Everything about the place was exactly what we were hoping for:

1. It is right on the river with access to great fishing

2. The cottage is clean, comfortable and well furnished (we comfortably slept 4)

3. The price is right

4. The owner Shannon is nice and relaxed

5. There are 2 nice dogs on the property including one little weiner dog named Tweega that, if he warms up to you enough, may try to become an adopted member of your group.

All in all, I can't say enough great things. We plan on coming back for mancation part II in April!

Lovely, Relaxing Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed for the month of December in Jonathan's Trout Lodge, the lower cottage. The cottage was cozy and had everything we needed. The setting is beautiful, on the river and with lovely grounds. Location is gated, private and quiet. Shannon and Todd were terrific hosts. While they were very helpful and available when needed, they were not at all intrusive. We rarely even saw their well behaved children. Their dogs are friendly but stay away unless you feed them which I did because I like dogs. We would definitely choose to stay here again.

Beautiful! Even better than we expected.

  • 5 of 5

4 of us met here for a girls trip. The grounds are so picturesque and the balcony looks out over the river. The cottage is clean, stylish, roomy and comfortable. We cooked several meals and the kitchen was equipped with everything we needed. The owners struck a great balance of being available to answer questions but yet giving us the space to enjoy a quiet vacation. Would recommend to others and stay again myself if in Redding.

Great Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned to England after an amazing week in Redding! Myself, my wife and my daughter (4) stayed at the house for 9 nights, enjoying a really peaceful, comfortable home away from home. The property is well run, Shannon & Todd are great hosts, and we were made to feel really welcome. Location is great, close to several routes through and around Redding, as well as being only a minute from I-5. We will definitely come again, thank you for a wonderful stay!
