LAKEHEAD WOODED RETREAT
Located in the community of Lakehead, California,
on the Sacramento River arm of Shasta Lake. This home is generally available from just before Memorial Day to just after Labor Day. A minimum of a full-week rental may be arranged during other times of the year.
Nestled among pines and oaks, this Shasta Lake vacation home is best suited for smaller parties (there are beds for eight persons). Fully furnished, including linens and kitchen utensils, it also includes satellite TV, a DVD player, wireless internet, and use of the washer and dryer. Bring your own movies, or rent them at the nearby market. The home has two large bedrooms (each with a queen-size bed), two baths, and a large L-shaped living room. In a corner of the living room is a trundle bed that can be made up as two twin beds. In addition, we can supply two twin rollaway beds to be located wherever you choose. The Retreat is air conditioned for your summer comfort.
The house is within easy walking distance of the lake's shoreline. Nearby there is a public boat launch ramp. Also available there are numerous lake services/rentals, including termporary dock rentals.
There is plenty of room on the adjacent lot for RV and boat trailer parking.
Now retired, I enjoy the activity of the lake by day and the serenity of the lake in the evenings. The neighbors and merchants of this small resort community have a strong bond that endures during our long winter, and blossoms during the summer.
Randall McNames purchased this house in 2002
The village of Lakehead is one of the few locations that offers such convenient access to the lake. And there are several small businesses that provide for common needs so you don't have to drive into Redding for routine suppllies. This property is best suited for smaller groups.
This vacation home is relatively private, located on a wooded 1/2 acre. Besides being a short walk to the water, there is ample chance to experience wild life just outside the door. It is often the case on many afternoons to see deer snacking on the landscaping. And the birds provide their entertainment as well. The neighborhood is well suited for an evening walk with the dog. Please remember there is a leash law in Shasta County.
We booked this home for 2 weeks. Lakehead is close to many sightseeing opportunities-Shasta Dam, Shasta Caverns, Castle Crags State Park and it is close enough to Redding for any shopping needs. The home itself is very well laid out, spacious and very clean. The deck is private and the neighborhood is very quiet. The home is well stocked and the beds were very comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
We went to Lake Shasta for a family reunion and found this home (instead of staying at the camp grounds) It was only .5 miles from where the reunion was, and less than that to the grocery store. We were surprised how spacious this home was, the pictures don't do it justice. Very nice, clean and comfortable. It has pretty much everything you may need for your stay. Nice large kitchen with lots of counter space, enjoyed making meals and eating out on the spacious deck. The water levels on the lake were very low but that didn't stop my boys from walking down to it and going swimming. We were very grateful of Randall's accommodations, he made sure we had everything we needed and made us feel at home. Thank you for sharing your well cared for home with us.
This is a great value and a great house! It's spacious and very well maintained and there is a lovely deck area with a gas grill. The kitchen is nice and roomy and has new utensils (nice pans!), a blender and everything you need to prepare a meal. The beds were comfortable and there are roll aways in each closet. The house is situated in the neighborhood so you feel secluded when sitting on the deck. A grocery store, a couple of restaurants and the lake are all very close. We are going back again and recommend it highly to our friends and family.
This home is well cared for and it's spacious, clean and comfortable. It's a five minute drive to the lake and marina, and 2 minutes from the local Lakehead eateries, market and gas. We rented it for a girls getaway and it was perfect! The kitchen was big so we could all be in and around there at the same time, and it was well stocked with everything and more than we needed. The big open living dining kitchen area was ideal.
If you don't have a boat, get Sandy's phone number and rent her patio boat for the day and enjoy the lake! We spotted 2 juvenile bald eagles and their nests in a cove, and watched in amazement as they soared over the aqua blue water, and up against the clear blue sky. This was pure enjoyment, relaxation, comfort and style - Shasta style!
Pros: The house is very clean and well maintained. The bedrooms are large and can easily fit a second hideaway bed in the room. The house is much nicer in person than appears in the pictures. There is a large patio between the house and garage that is great in the evening. The back yard is large. The house is situated so that you have plenty of privacy. There is a trail that leads down to the lake and great area to let your dog roam.
Cons: We were not able to get an internet connection while there. However, not a big deal as we had cell reception.
House is very comfortable and clean. Patio has plenty of furniture and large shade umbrella. Very quiet area with plenty of privacy. Plenty of room for your dog to roam around. Lake was way down so not very easy to access the lake shore as it was muddy and rocky. Kitchen had plenty of storage space for food and prep area and even has a dishwasher. The house is nicer than the photos and well maintained. The owner is very nice and nearby if you need anything. We had a boat moored at Antler's which is a short drive from the house, so access to the lake was not a problem. Overall we enjoyed our stay very much and would recommend to friends and/or family. We would rent this house again.
Lots of shopping in Redding about 22 miles south, At least 4 cafes and restaurants located nearby, grocery store & video rental nearby, Mountain trail for hiking / biking located nearby, Shasta Caverns 5 miles south
