About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4 Baths, (Sleeps up to 16)

Jackalope Acres, our family forest home, awaits you only 15 minutes from Mt. Lassen National Park in the heart of some the most gorgeous, unspoiled hiking and fishing country in California--or the world! Read our 5 Star Reviews!

Stunning 5-bedroom, 4-bath log house on 20 acres of forest and meadowland, in mountains near Mt. Lassen National Park--and multiple other amazing destinations.

The property is set at 4200 feet elevation with historic North Battle Creek running through the backyard, restored to sylvan condition and populated by wild brown trout.

Jackalope Acres isn't just a place to stay--it's a place to create memories! A family resort! Or a couples get away! With amenities available nowhere else in the area.

If you have a larger group, our neighbor has a three bed room house just around the corner, which could accommodate an additional 6 or 7 family members. Vrbo property number 774498.

Our custom Alaskan cedar hot tub, sunken into the large wrap around deck, is the perfect place to start the day watching the song birds and hummingbirds at the feeders or end it with a cocktail or a glass of wine. We also have a large sunken firepit perfect for the cool evening weather.

Jackalope Acres is set on 20 private acres with extensive trails throughout the grounds for walking, (and in winter) snow shoeing, or cross country skiing. There are multiple evergreen species, black oak, plus meadows with native grasses and flowers.

You'll see deer, dove, quail, blue heron, hawks, and even wild turkeys. Bring a basket and enjoy a picnic at the table by creek.

Use our canoe or our kayaks at no additional charge on nearby Lake McCumber, also known for it's huge wild trout, bald eagles, and osprey.

Play croquet, badminton ,or volley ball on the grass lawn. Throw horseshoes in the firepit. Or throw the footballs, frisbees, or play catch with our balls and gloves. One man's and one woman's mountain bike--and miles of roads. World class indoor outdoor ping pong table!

In winter, we have 4 sets of snow shoes for use at the acres or for Mt Lassen Park. There is a sledding hill on the property kids love. Or take our sleds up to Eskimo Hill where the locals go! Or just watch the leaves and the snow fall from the hot tub! In addition, we are 90 minutes from Mt. Shasta winter downhill skiing and snowboarding!

We love dogs and are willing to accommodate them. There is an additional $200 fee per dog as well as some doggie house rules. If you decide to book that is all explained in the rental agreement.

Bedrooms include two master suites, one in main house and the second in a gorgeous open loft, each with individual attached baths. Main house has 2 additional upstairs bedrooms (one with additional loft bed) and shared bath. Downstairs bedroom has its own hall bath. Perfect for 5 individuals or 5 couples, but with additional futon sofas in master suites, house can sleep 16.

Gorgeous, eclectic interior lighting and furnishings. Original art and photography throughout house.

Six-burner cast iron gas stove, conventional, convection and microwave ovens, Cusinart, blender, coffee maker, ice cream maker, and extra refrigerator and freezer in garage. We provide the spices, condiments, napkins, paper towels, etc!

Entertain in the open living room/dining area with state of art iPod and laptop compatible media stereo. Relax in the separate sitting area in front of the Vermont Castings fireplace. In summer, bring the outdoors in: living and dining area also open to deck through 2 sets of sliding doors, with outdoor dining tables and lounge chairs.

Jackolope Acres is also only 30 miles from world famous trout fishery Hat Creek.

Dozens of other world class rivers, streams, lakes, and state parks are all within 1 hour or less. World class private fishing booking are available through Fly Shop in Redding.

The house is also only 1/2 hour from the Manton Valley winery district with small wineries, a wide range of varietals and friendly, vintner staffed tasting rooms.

Great local burgers and a good deli are also available nearby.

The area is unspoiled, uncrowded, and free from the traffic and people jams of so many other California “outdoor” destinations such as Yosemite or Lake Tahoe.

Sun Oaks Racquet Club 35 which is minutes away allows day passes for tennis and/or to use their complete fitness facility. More detailed, custom activity suggestions in owner created guidebook at house.

Truly a place to get away, relax, explore, and entertain. Great in all four seasons. Warm summer temperatures with cool nights and gorgeous, moderate winter snows.

About The Owner

We are urban San Franciscans who always dreamed of having a property where we could get back to nature. We grew up fishing, hiking and exploring, and we can truly say we have found the perfect escape from our busy life in the city. It is a great pleasure to share our home with friends, family and guests.

The Owner purchased this house in 2010

Why The Owner chose Shasta Cascade

Shingletown is a quaint community, just a few miles from Lassen National Park and surrounded by pristine lakes, streams and abundant hiking. We fell in love with the property's 20 acres which are home to deer, jack rabbits and countless species of birds. Even in summer, Shingletown is never crowded. It feels remote, but it is only 45 minutes away from the town of Redding which has all the resources you might want and a great historic steakhouse named Jack's.

What makes this house unique

Looking at the skies from the backyard, you will be amazed to see so many stars!!!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family (of 16) and I had a GREAT experience staying at the Lassen cabin! Not only was the caretaker (Erik) present upon arrival to answer all of our questions, but there was also a booklet with LOTS of information regarding the property and things to do in the surrounding area. John & Isabel have done a great job with this cabin, everything from dishes to furnishings are not only of great quality, but also beautiful. We all had a wonderful time cooking large meals in the kitchen, which had ample supply of cooking and serving ware (great assets)! We also enjoyed all of the amenities that the home offered, such as the hot tub, fire pit, horseshoe pit, ping pong table, media room, bikes and snow sleds! Thank you again to the owners for opening up their home, it is definitely a place we hope to visit again in the near future!

Amazing family reunion at Jackalope Acres

  • 5 of 5

Our first stay at Jackalope Acres and it was amazing! We had our family reunion of 11 and we were all able to fit on 1 table for dinner for the 1st time ever! Lounging in the backyard and in the hot tub with a view of the private forest was wonderful. Very nice and secluded. I would definitely recommend this to anyone with a large group looking for a place to get away from it all.

Great stay at this Shingletown property

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful long weekend stay at this cabin. The cabin is well equipped with everything needed for a relaxing visit to the Shingletown area. As weather was a bit wet and cold, we particularly enjoyed the fireplace and media room. During a sunny day, we rode the mountain bikes over to Lake McCumber. Looking forward to a return visit.

Jackalope Magic!

  • 5 of 5

We are a group of couples and friends who rented Jackalope Acres—for the third time! This destination home is in our opinion far superior in quality, amenities, and traffic--or the lack of traffic--when compared to the Lake Tahoe and Yosemite areas. North Battle Creek in the backyard is full of wild brown trout up to 12 inches. Backyard in this case means 20 acres of woods, meadows, and trails. There are also many other amazing fishing opportunities—float the lower Sacramento for wild, huge rainbows. But the best thing is the area is unknown, full of friendly local people, with wonderful day adventures in every direction. If you are there in summer Lassen National Park is almost deserted. The owners recommended the Paradise Meadow hike and it was—paradise that is. In winter the park IS deserted! Take the house snow shoes and walk around Lake Manzanita. It’s a private home and the kitchen is amazing and fully stocked. The firepit and the cedar hot tub are musts.

A White Christmas at Jackalope Acres!

  • 5 of 5

The six of us plus two dogs had a wonderful time at your lovely house and property. We were very lucky that it snowed after we arrived and that the roads were clear when we left 5 days later. The hot tub was a hit, and we enjoyed walking on your property. Erik was a big help for us also. Attached is a photo of us wearing our jackalope t-shirts. Thank you!

The secret undiscovered North State region of California around Lassen National Park is uncrowded and stunningly gorgeous. Hiking, plus kayaking and canoeing (we have the kayaks and the canoe for you!), incredible fishing, biking (we have those too!), star gazing, wine tasting...These are just a few of your options in our neighborhood! Not to mention the amenities at our house.
