Why Mike Marshall chose Shasta Cascade

We grew up in Dunsmuir We decided to build a vacation home in Dunsmuir so our family could gather for the seasonal activities. It is a perfect place to gather with friends and family to enjoy all seasons.

What makes this house unique

Rafting/tubing, swimming and fishing right out the back door. A quick drive to water ski or boat on Shasta Lake or the many other local lakes. Conveniently located to trails and mountains for hikes or exploration. The waterfalls are abundant and breathtaking. Mt. Shasta Ski/Board Park is within 20 minutes and the lift tickets are reasonable without traffic issues-- night and cross country skiing is available too. The community offers scenic drives to historic railroad, timber, fishing and health conscious points of interest.

Beautiful Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this cabin just after Christmas. We have six grown kids, and there was plenty of room for all of us. The cabin is very clean, roomy, and comfortable. The kitchen is well-stocked with everything to make the stay more enjoyable. It even has a small crockpot! The heaters worked very well, as did the hot water heater, which added to our comfort. The location was perfect! The river is right out the back door with a fantastic fishing hole. We grilled one night on the large deck, and the grill worked great. The internet and the cable also worked well. Mike was such an excellent host, and thought of everything! We highly recommend this cabin! Our kids all had a wonderful time. We will treasure the memories always! Thank you, Mike for sharing your amazing cabin with us.

The river is right behind the cabin. Great fishing! My son caught a 20" trout fly fishing just above the river from the cabin. It made his own vacation. The cabin is such a beautiful place to stay, it has a wonderful kitchen, three bedrooms, large loft, nice bathrooms etc.. We have been coming up to Dunsmuir for about 60yrs. We love it up here! We did many different things while here. We went to Shasta, Burney Falls, Hat Creek, Castle Creek, Siskiyou Lake & many more places. We feel like this is our home away from home. The owners Mike & Rose are wonderful! Can't wait til next year!!!

Love This Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

We brought our two daughters to spend Thanksgiving in the Mt. Shasta area and since we had stayed here before chose to do so again. The owners are awesome hosts and are very personable. We had a wonderful time each day hiking on the McCloud River and playing in the snow on Shasta. Then return to this beautiful log home to relax and enjoy our time together playing games, watching movies and building memories. Can't wait to return.

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed two nights in this log home. It was fantastic experience and the whole family and friends enjoyed the stay. Our kids also had lot of fun there and they were excited to stay in such nice log home. Also Dunsmuir is excellent location for access to Mt Shasta and other places. Mike was easy to work with in the whole process and very responsive. Had wonderful vacation! This log home will be my choice when I visit Mt. Shasta again.

Wonderful Dunsmuir Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

My family & I had a wonderful stay at the Marshall's log home in Dunsmuir. We were visiting family in Dunsmuir so this was the perfect location for us. Our girls loved hearing the train go by. The listing photos do not do this home justice! It is spacious & bright with lots of windows. Our girls LOVED the upstairs loft area & big bedroom. We loved the spacious back deck overlooking the river. The home was very clean & well-maintained with lots of extra pillows & bed linens if needed. The washer & dryer were great to have as well. The Marshall's were very helpful during the whole process & the transaction was very easy. I would definitely recommend this home to a friend or relative :)

Great Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

I just returned from a trip to Dunsmuir and stayed at this cabin for two nights. The location is perfect as its within walking distance to some nice fishing spots, including one right off the back deck. You can also easily walk into town, which we did both nights for dinner. The cabin is very clean, spacious and well appointed. The booking, payment, and check-in process was easy and stress-free. Highly recommended.
